BFB's Overview

When owners Gail and Mick took on the 200-year old ‘house of Seville’, the simple farmhouse had been empty and neglected for years, with no running water and no electricity. Undeterred, the couple rolled up their sleeves for the labour of love that’s transformed the crumbling cottage into an authentic Spanish family home and welcoming guest house.

The name is a bit of a mystery, because ‘Cortijo del Sevillano’ is actually hundreds of miles from Seville in a quiet corner of eastern Almeria, with views across the sun baked landscape of cacti, aloes and palms, to mountains in the distance. In this quiet and secluded spot, the Cortijo makes a wonderful oasis for weary parents to recharge their batteries and take full advantage of the British hosts’ baby friendly hospitality.


The Cortijo has 4 guest rooms which are beautifully simple and comfortable, with cool cotton linen, big fluffy towels and rustic features like beamed ceilings and wood floors. In addition, the Cortijo has a self contained studio apartment for 3, with a kitchenette, ‘rain shower’ wetroom and private courtyard with a barbecue.


The main living room in the farmhouse has a flat screen TV with Sky channels plus two of the guest rooms have a TV and DVD player. The owners will happily lend guests a docking station for an iPod and there’s a small library of books, CD’s DVD’s and videos. The indoor dining room has a farmhouse table for 10 and the large kitchen is well equipped for self catering.


At the heart of the Cortijo is a lovely courtyard for al fresco dining in the shade of a large palm tree and with bright Bougainvillea tumbling over the walls. The Cortijo also has a shaded terrace with rattan furniture to curl up with the Kindle and a lovely swimming pool for a refreshing dip or simply to laze on the loungers, admiring the views.



Accommodation Overview:

Cortijo del Sevillano comprises a farmhouse with 4 double guest rooms and a studio room for 3 people. The accommodation can be booked as individual units on a B&B basis (except in July & August when the property is rental only), with space for a cot in two of the guest rooms, or booked as a whole for a maximum of 10 adults plus 2 babies.

Location Information

Cortijo del Sevillano is just nicely off the beaten track, in the rural countryside near the coast of Eastern Almeria, which boasts an enviable 300 days of sunshine per year.


The nearest town, Cuevas del Almanzora, is just 3 kilometres away and makes an interesting place to stroll around, thanks to a ‘silver rush’ in the 19th century leaving a legacy of grand old houses. The silver miners also took up residence in caves and there are five levels of abandoned dwellings to explore at Terrera del Calguerín.


Besides its heritage, Cuevas del Almanzora has a handy range of shops, supermarkets, banks, bars and restaurants, plus market stalls of local produce fill the Plaza Mayor every Tuesday and Thursday.


The nearest beaches are just 10 minutes drive from the Cortijo, including the unspoilt and uncrowded sandy beach at Villaricos and the Blue Flag Las Marinas beach at Vera, with parasols and sun loungers for hire plus ‘chiringuito’ beach bars for snacks, drinks and ice creams. Along the coast, Puerto del Reu beach has even more facilities for families but can be a little busier, especially in the summer months. Mornings are the best times to head to the beaches with toddlers because the sea is usually calm and safe, whereas stronger waves tend to swell up in the afternoons, attracting the windsurfers.


The white hill top town of Mojacar is within easy reach for a change of scene, with narrow winding streets to explore, panoramic restaurants and cafes, plus souvenir shops all selling the Indalo ‘Mojacar man’ lucky charms. After a bit of sightseeing, families can also enjoy an afternoon on the beach at Mojacar Playa.


The historic provincial town of Almeria is around an hour’s drive (100kms), set on the coast and overlooked by the impressive Moorish fort of Alcazaba, which has towers, ruins and dungeons to explore. For something completely different in the Almeria province, families can step into the set of the Clint Eastwood Spaghetti Westerns at Oasys theme Park, complete with cowboy shoot outs, stage coaches, themed restaurants, safari zoo and swimming pool with slides.


Nearest Medical Services (GP & A&E)
: Cuevas del Almanzora Medical Centre, 10 minutes drive from the house.


Getting there: The nearest airports are in Almeria, (100kms), Murcia San Javier (150kms) and Alicante (200kms). Car hire is recommended.
