Amidst the picturesque and unspoilt countryside of the Alcornocales National Park, we followed the private driveway of this grand estate as it meandered its way through gently undulating grounds of cork oaks. However, it was not until we reached a clearing and saw the imposing, gleaming white walls that encircle the fine house that we really appreciated how truly magnificent the setting of Cortijo Alcornocosa is.
Spreading out ahead of us was a vast, uninterrupted panorama encompassing what seemed to be miles and miles of breathtakingly beautiful scenery. Down below in the valley bottom, the turquoise green waters of the Embalse de los Hurones shimmer invitingly between vegetated slopes. Beyond, higher peaks of grey and green signal the start of the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park.
Beautifully coordinated sofas and armchairs have been thoughtfully positioned, some around a coffee table by the window and others either side of the fireplace. From the dining area, French windows open out onto a wide covered terrace, beyond which a pretty stone pathway curves through well kept lawns to the swimming pool. Within the main house, four smart bedrooms lie off a wide inner hall and all enjoy the comfort of en suite facilities.
