Cortijo (Country house) on the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada (Alpujarras). Stunning views, swimming pool, floor heating, own spring water, 1 acre of land with fruit trees and meadows.


The Cortijo La Suerte is situated on the Southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada on a fifteen minutes walk from the village Pitres and a twenty minutes walk from the village Mecina. It is a typical house in 'the campo' where nature lovers can enjoy the quiet country atmosphere. The swimming pool, wood stove heating in the living room and floor heating in the two main bedrooms are small luxuries that add to the rural living style. So don't expect a luxurious holiday mansion but enjoy the advantages of the quiet countryside, where you can be completely on your own.

The house was originally a cortijo, and was extended early this century into a lovely country house. With three double bedrooms it sleeps six persons.

Because of the hilly area and the swimming pool, the house seems less appropriate for children under six years old.

On the upper floor, the spacious main bedroom has a double bed, washstand, picture windows and doors opening to a large terrace with stunning mountain views.
The second bedroom has two single beds and the new bathroom next door, with washstand, bath and toilet. The bedrooms have floor heating for the cold season.
Downstairs, a second bathroom has another toilet, a wash basin and an unusual semi-circular shower. While showering one can admire the view over the mountains and the village of Mecina.

The living room has a cozy wood stove and an open kitchen with hot and cold water, a fridge/freezer, and a kitchen cooker with an oven.
The dining area has a table for eight persons, and the inventory is sufficient for such a group.

The terrace on the main floor is covered and is the perfect place to stay on a hot summers day. From this terrace one has also wonderful views over the valley and the mountains.

A little separate apartment is situated next to the swimming pool with a nice hidden terrace between fruit trees and with beautiful views. It has a double bedroom with a small bathroom with shower and wash stand and a toilet outside.

The swimming pool is L-shaped and measures 7.20 meters by 3.90 meters plus 4.00 meters by 1.80 meters. The depth is between 1.40 and 2.20 meters.


We had an absolutely wonderful time at your cortijo, what a beautiful place! So peaceful! We didn't encounter any problems with anything. Everything was explained in a very clear and helpful fashion in your House Book.
All in all 10 out of 10! We would certainly love to come back, if you'd have us!

We have just returned from our holiday in Spain and would like to thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful cortijo. We had a terrific time: the place is delightful and was just what we were wanting. Definitely our best place ever! We would very much like to book again for next year!
Eleanor, Scotland - September 2008

We stayed at Cortijo La Suerte for a week in February 2008 The weather was wonderful, and just a few other tourists shared the walking trails with us. Snow still covered the Sierra Nevada, early spring growth painted bright green patches on the hillsides and almond trees blossomed in the valley and around the house.
The house itself is very secluded and private, with a fabulous view and pleasant places to sit and eat outside. It's quite comfortable, a little quirky (careful on the steps!), and ideal for a small group of friends or family who want a place to themselves. We enjoyed Pitres and other quaint villages nearby and especially recommend walking and driving in the surrounding countryside.

I would like to congratulate you on having such a nice place in such a wonderful location. We had a thoroughly relaxing week, with great weather.
Louise - September 2006

Just to say thank you for such a lovely restful holiday. We loved the area and the cortijo. Moss and Bramble - our dog and cat also enjoyed themselves especially the freedom of having so much space in a safe environment. We hope to return next year for a holiday and I have passed your details on to a number of people.
Shirley and John - August 2006

Just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at La Suerte. The house is a little treasure. It was a pleasure getting away from the normal frantic pace of modern life. The Alpujarras area was like stepping back in time with comparisons to places such as Peru or Chile!! There were several other marvellous experiences from our time there and I could go on and on.
Don't change anything with the house, its charm is in its location and simplicity.
