Cortijo La Mata
Cortijo la Mata, owned by Johnny & Angie and superbly managed by the ever-friendly and helpful Laura, is a traditional Andalusian 6-bedroom farmhouse built in 1911 and converted into a holiday villa with all mod cons. Situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, yet only 20 minutes by car from the Alhambra Palace and the city of Granada, the house is located just outside the old village of Monachil in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounded by olive, almond and cherry trees.
For those who are looking for a complete escape to the Andalusian countryside, yet want to take advantage of all that the beautiful city of Granada has to offer plus take in the ski slopes of Spain's highest mountain range, the location is perfect.
Sierra Nevada ski station is only 20 minutes away with the added advantage that there is a separate road from the village to the resort, avoiding much of the Granada city traffic. Cortijo la Mata is perfect for couples, families, or groups of friends as it offers a really tranquil environment while at the same time offering its visitors all that the city has on offer.
Total land area of 1,500m2 which includes the villa (200m2 distributed over three floors), beautiful mature gardens of over 100m2, several patios and terraces totalling around 300m2, parking area of 100m2 (for 4 cars) and private mountainside of 800m2. The large pool is fully enclosed and there are sun loungers to relax on while the kids splash in the pool.
Ideal for a large family (with grandparents) or two families taking a holiday together in 6 bedrooms. Set amongst mature gardens with beautiful shrubs and trees, the barbecue area with fabulous views of the countryside is big enough for family celebrations and gatherings. There are quiet corners for relaxation so everyone can relax and enjoy their well earned family holiday. Cortijo la Mata is registered with the Andalusian Tourist Board VTAR/GR/00194.
Monachil, where this property is situated, is truly a Spanish village. The house is ideally located within a 10 minute walk from the village and its local shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, large play parks, banks, a post office, pharmacy, DIY shop, tobacco shop, bike rental and bus stop.
