Cortijo la Lomilla

Location and atmosphere

La Lomilla is a farm in Las Alpujarras, the mountain range between the snow-capped Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean. The Dutch owners, Mariana Vestjens and Harry van Meegen and their 2 children came in 1991 to live here. Their 3,5 ha of terraced farmland are planted with olive and fruit trees, and with a vegetables garden. Guest can enjoy the great views, flowers, birds, butterflies and open spaces...and of course the quietness.

Facillities

The terrain is somewhat difficult to negotiate, but the tent pitches are beautiful. Guests can also hire a small farmhouse with a fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen (sleeps 4), a casi casita (mini-house), . Mariana prepares simple but tasty meals (on request) with her own home-grown organic produce.

Surroundings and activities

Electricity on the farm comes from solar panels. The property is unlit at night, so be sure to bring your own flashlight. Children and adults can play in the swimming pool, paddle pool and sandbox. Las Alpujarras and the Sierra Nevada are excellent for walking. You can take outstanding day trips or several-day hikes starting from La Lomilla or from one the characteristic white mountain villages of Pampaneira, Capileira, Pitres and Trévelez. Málaga, Granada and Spain’s southern coast are all easily within reach, even by bus.
