This living area offers double-height vaulted ceilings, traditional terracotta floors, and characterful details.

The living room centres around a stunning, handcrafted fireplace.

Décor is elegant and traditional, and focuses around an elegant tapestry, silver candelabras, and various works of art. The second part of the cortijo has a large living-dining area that seats 20.
Cortijo Alondra offers two traditionally styled kitchens, one on each side of the estate. They offer large American-style refrigerators, coffee and tea stations, gas cookers, range ovens and dishwashers. Complimentary drinks are replenished daily.
Both kitchens are fitted with dining tables perfect for children’s tea or your morning breakfast. You may also take breakfast in the summer room or on one of the garden patios. A Spanish breakfast is served daily (included), and offers a feast of pastries, toast, fruits, and cured meats.
Both kitchens are equipped for professional catering (ask to see the menus available from the estate chefs) and can accommodate large events and families. Shopping service is offered pre-arrival.
Cortijo Alondra offers solace and respite – total relaxation, completely away from it all. Curl up on one of the sofas – you’ll have your pick of indoor or outdoor seating – and relax with a book and the view. Explore the film and music library.

Cortijo Alondra is located on a large private estate in the countryside, this means that at certain times of year its possible that wild boars can come close to the property, making the use of the garden-side terrace inadvisable after dark.
They do not usually pose any danger if left alone and the staff is on hand each day to advise you should there be any activity of the animals during your stay. The main patio will still be available as normal.
