Fodor's Expert Review Cortijo el Papudo
Secadero, San Martín de Tesorillo, San Roque, Andalusia, 29692, Spain
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Michael and Vivien Harvey, expats from the United Kingdom, have given this cortijo (country house) a delightful, homey feel. The main building dates back to the early 19th century and is surrounded by mature gardens and 65 acres of avocado, palm, and orange trees. The couple's horticultural expertise is further reflected in a thriving on-site garden center for exotic and rare plants. The rooms are simply decorated, with an appropriately rustic look, while the secluded pool, surrounded by greenery, is a magical spot.
- wonderful breakfast
- gorgeous gardens
- 30 km (19 miles) from Casares proper
- may be too quiet for some
