Cortijo dos Santos is located in the campo north of the Sierra de Valle de Abdalajis and La Huma, this mountain range is 50 km northwest of Malaga.
The 150-year-old farm (originally goats) has been completely restored over a period of 13 years and is hidden between the olive and almond trees on a terrain of 2.5 ha. Immediately behind the farm is an old threshing floor (era) where our camper is parked.
From this place it is a fantastically beautiful view of the mountains and the surrounding farmlands.
A little lower on the land in an idyllic valley, we have set up the luxury tents between the olive trees (150 meters from the parking lot).
Because there is no light pollution, we have a beautiful starry sky.
Every season we enjoy the different sounds of the Hoopoe, Bee-eater, Skylark, Little Owl, Goldfinch, Swallow, Partridge and many other birds.
Sometimes at certain wind directions the Griffon Vultures (Gyps Fulvus) fly over our country to forage in El Torcal. Occasionally a Egyptian Vulture (Neophron Percnopterus) is spotted
The farm is ideally suited as a base for short walks through the surrounding farmlands and orchards.
Early in the spring we see first the orchids bloom and then a rich assortment of wild flowers.
