Bed & Breakfast Cortijo Sabila


Home Description

This statuesque Cortijo (manor house) was built in 1982 but stood empty a long time before being rescued by us in a neglected state in 2012. After a year of hard work our boutique hotel (and home) was completed. It is surrounded by mountains and sits within its’ own established olive groves yet is very easy to find off the main A92 to Granada. You’ll find so many interesting corners, courtyards, angles, features and hidden bits to enjoy. The white walls provide a great backdrop to the pots of geraniums & wonderful gardens.

The perfect place to relax on our huge comfy sofas, with a drink, a book or just some music.

It’s a great place to mingle with other guests especially around the fire in the winter. The decor is inspired by  different religious iconography, with the huge cabinets specially made for the high ceilings and many of our favourite collected objets d’Art are in this room.

Probably our favourite room in the house is the dining room, as it’s simply spectacular.

From the decor to the table settings, curtains and ornaments it’s certainly rich and indulgent. Whilst guests prefer to eat more often in the cool open air of the Moroccan courtyard, this dining room is superb for private dining occasions by chandelier and candle light.

Wherever you look there is a view to fall in love with, through every grilled window, from the many terraces and sun-loungers in the gardens..

The mountains and olive groves change character throughout the day and the seasons. No matter what we’ve achieved inside the Hotel, nature surpasses it every day with her beauty outside.

There’s many a man and woman would love a wine cellar and we inherited a bodega with the house.

The cool brick walls downstairs make it an ideal place to store wines and we are slowly starting to fill the shelves.  Having a bodega means we’d like to offer wine and food tasting for guests in the future.

Cortijo Sabila is our home as well as our guest house/hotel so it’s filled with our collections of weird and wonderful things.

From the huge bronze bull, hats and lamps in the hallway to the ostrich egg, candlesticks and watercolours, even the quirkiest objects seemed to miraculously fit perfectly in the Cortijo when they got here. They make it a more personal place to stay that our guests value.

The huge Moroccan courtyard in the centre of the house hosts most breakfasts, lunches and dinners and has a lovely tiled fountain, chimera and orange trees, with large umbrellas for shade.

At the front of the villa the courtyard Plaza de Espagna is a great place to take afternoon cream tea, Moroccan mint tea or a cooling drink.

When on holiday, a little pampering goes a long way so we built a treatment room in the cool of downstairs.

Local providers of massage and beauty treatments can come and help you totally relax, refresh and rejuvenate either in the treatment room or in the lovely Zen garden outside. A great place day or night for a massage under the skies.
