"Wonderful Cortijo Serrano in Andalucia."

The cortijo is located in a beautiful valley, within the Sierra de Las Villas.This Sierra is part of the natural reserve Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas which is a Biosphere Reserve (UNESCO) and with its 2100 km2, one of the largest natural parks in Europe.


You can park the car there where the lane ends and walk along an idyllic road, you reach the farmhouse in 20 '. The cortijo can not be reached by car. The transport of heavy materials we do by horse (it is a horse of a neighbour, in return the animal can graze in our prairie).

Description of the farm:

The land has 11389 m2 and is completely fenced. It is located in a flat area halfway up the valley and is protected by the mountains. To the West side there are spectacular views, from the terrace you can see beautiful sunsets.

A river passes through the land and just beyond the house there is a waterfall.

There are 2 powerful sources that supply crystal clear drinking water throughout the year. There is potable water inside the house.

The electricity is produced by 5 small solar panels (total = +/- 260 Wp) and a gel battery. There is also a 220V converter.

There is good coverage for the mobile and internet connection is possible through the mobile (3G) or can be installed satellite parabolic.

The house is heated with a wood burning stove. Firewood can be obtained at low or free price by helping local olive trees with pruning.

There are many fruit trees: figs, cherry trees, a dozen almond trees, several walnuts, pear trees, vines and a pomegranate and mulberry.

The flora and fauna of the park is very rich and diverse.

The constellation of the farm itself is almost naturally a permaculture design, you just need to grow your vegetables.

The farmhouse:

For the renovation of the house has been used only ecological materials. The farmhouse is large and has a large main house, an apartment, a stable and a warehouse.

The main house is on the south side of the house and has an area of approx. 4m x 16m. It has 2 floors: on the upper floor there are 3 bedrooms.

There is a kitchen with a heater. Living room. Inside there is a bucket-shower that can be filled with hot water from the heater. There is a dry composting toilet.

There is also an outside douche which can be used from spring till autumn.

All floors have been renovated. Previously there were 2 houses: we removed the wall of the ground floor that separated the houses so now there is a large area to livein.

To the south side we have installed a large door of 2m x 2m with a sliding door and with glass from bottom to top where a lot of light enters the house.

The apartment for 2 people has a separate entrance, kitchenette, wood stove, table and upstairs is the bedroom. This apartment could be rented separately. Right now there lives a young man who takes care of the house and the garden.

To the north side of the house there is a large stable that has yet to be renovated.

The farm is ideal for people who are looking for a life in the wild, for permaculture projects, for living self-sufficient and also as a vacation home.
