Celebrating a holiday at a horse-riding school
This cosy holiday home is part of an ancient cortijo. Cortijos are old farms or country houses built around a courtyard, this is also the case with this holiday home in Andalusia. Casa Vieja used to be a barn, which served as storage for the old farm. The other rooms of the cortijo, such as the stable and barn further up the field, have also been transformed into nice holiday homes. As this is a very large cortijo, all holiday homes have their own walled terrace with barbecue, dining table and lounge sofas in front of the door. The large courtyard of the cortijo serves as a communal space. Here you will find, for example, a large dining table and a fish pond, under the large trees it is wonderful to relax on a hot summer day. In the courtyard is also the entrance to the large heated swimming pool with 8 sun loungers, followed by the jacuzzi. The courtyard and the swimming pool are separated by a high wall, with a gate that can be closed, so it is safe for the little ones.
Next to the cortijo is the stable with ten horses, almost all of them rescued from an unpleasant situation. You are cordially invited to admire these beautiful animals, perhaps you would even like to take a trip with one of them? This holiday home is the ultimate place for horse girls and boys and their parents. If you also rent Casa Caballo, you can stay here with 6 adults and 2 children; on holiday together, yet each family has its own home.
Layout of Casa Vieja
When you have parked your car under one of the shady trees on arrival, you walk through a stone staircase and gate into the courtyard of the cortijo. Your private terrace is behind the first gate on the left. Here you will find a dining area, lounge sofas and a gas barbecue. Through the front door you enter the living room of Casa Vieja with a wood stove, nice sitting area and dining area for several people. Right in front of you is the small, yet complete kitchen. To the right you will reach a double room with a choice of 2 single beds or a double bed. The bathroom with shower, toilet and sink is also located on the ground floor. Via a narrow spiral staircase, you’ll reach the loft, here are another 2 single beds, but due to the low ceiling they are really only suitable for children with a maximum age of about 12 years. The courtyard through which you entered is furnished for general use. Mature trees give shade to the long dining table and various seating areas. Seen across from your holiday home, behind the high wall is the large, heated swimming pool, also for general use + a jacuzzi. The equestrian center can also be reached via the courtyard, this intimate holiday resort is a very special place!
