Lakeshore traditonal 'Cortijo' (rural house) with fantastic views & easy access for swimming in the cleanest waters you'll ever experience. 10 mins from beautiful Castril and IN the National Park


My calendar is updated every day so you may 'Instant Book' with confidence. :)

My holiday home is a traditional Andalucian 'cortijo' (rural cottage) in a remarkable position on the edge of Portillo lake just outside the famous heritage town of Castril.

Fine lake views from the first floor, and astounding one from the rear garden... but the best bit is the lake itself below the house that will probably provide the best bathing of your life - clear, clean fresh water that has an amazing green/azure glow from the limestone rocks. We supply inflatable rubber rings and a snorkel and mask. During the year of renovation we never had to share the bathing beach below the house with a single other (URL HIDDEN) it feels like your own lake.

Once down at the water you can see for miles across the National Park...and not single property in sight - it really is a very special location.

Days out will take you to the Alhambra in Granada (a 'wonder of the world'), a choice of lakes and geo-thermal spas, or the coast which has a surprising number of small, traditional and unspoilt resorts.

Ground Floor:

Lounge - with large (and good quality) double sofabed, radio, open fire (plenty of free wood down at shore). Dining table for 6

Kitchen - oven, hob, toaster, kettle, fridge with small freezer compartment, two sinks, small dining table for 2/4

Bathroom - large room with large new double shower. hairdryer


Master bedroom - double with great lake view

Bedroom 2 - large room with double and single bed, and direct access out to rear garden


Parking for 2 cars
Dining table and chairs for 4
lounge chairs and outdoor rug
Astounding views from the land at the rear

Dostupno gostima

A whole house, with two bedrooms, and access down to the lakeshore for swimming.

Interakcija s gostima

Communication is mostly by email, though I have a local housekeeper in case of problems. Access is typically via a keycode so late arrivals are ok.

Ostale napomene

Note that young children would need to be supervised in the back garden as there is a sheer drop to the water.

No smoking inside thanks - but with a view like this from the garden who'd want to smoke inside?

No pets on the sofa or on the beds, and thanks for clearing garden mess

The Cortijo is in a beautiful though secluded location. The road to the house is quite narrow and bumpy so if you have a rental car make sure you take full cover. This brings directly to the incredibly benefit of the house; the location!! What an amazing view over the lake and you can't find a more quiet location anywhere. The house is comfortable and offers everything needed for a short or longer stay. Castril is a beautiful little town offering plenty of bars and restaurants and grocery shops. Highly recommend this place and hope we can make it back!

A fantastic place to stay, our single favourite on a packed holiday. Greg and friends were really helpful and prompt. We loved the reservoir swimming, the kittens, the quiet and the house. Strongly recommended.

This was everything and more that we were looking for. It is very secluded which means that it is very peaceful, practically no light pollution to ruin the stargazing and very peaceful. The lake is tranquil with no one around at all. Provides an excellent swim and has a small island to swim to which a family had built a little fort on. Although it is very secluded it has the quaint village of Castril only about 15 mins drive away. This provides shops, restaurants and Cafes which are very typical of Spain. There is also rich history and stunning views to be found here. Of particular note is the remains of an ancient castle overlooking the village and a walkway along some rapids. The communication from the host was exceptional providing advice and advising against attempting to use public transport. Which I would NOT RECOMMEND!!! the obvious attraction is the view which doesn't disappoint! The suprise is the character and quality of the interior. This isn't featured much in the ad but it is very impressive. Please book this and I am sure you will not be disappointed

Wow - Just Wow! After having stayed in some stunning locations, Amazon Rainforest, Rio de Janeiro, Maldives, Thailand I can say that this place was my favourite!!! The setting is idyllic, it really is paradise and looks even better when you visit than it does in the photos. The house has been refurbished to a great standard. The lake is amazing, it has beautiful islands you can swim out to. It's the perfect place to retreat and relax. Can't wait to return, thank you Greg!

Es un lugar ideal para desconectar y desintoxicarse de la ciudad. Que permite estar en contacto contigo mismo y con lo que te rodea, respirar olores de primavera, escuchar la naturaleza, disfrutar de las estrellas...momentos de tranquilidad y calma, con unas vistas espectaculares y sensacionales, sin duda alguna es lo mejor. Siguiendo las instrucciones y estando atentos es super sencillo de llegar porque está muy bien explicado. La casa en general necesita algunas mejoras, sobre todo del exterior para poder disfrutarlo más. Pero sin duda alguna es una gran elección alojarse aquí. Las vistas y la tranquilidad que aporta es indescriptible. Así que os lo recomiendo. Además Greg es un gran anfitrión, responsable y atento. Gracias :) hasta otra.

This place is amazing, the views are incredible and it is a great place to get away and relax with no technology. Castril is within walking distance and worth a visit, as is taking a trip further into the national park for some great walks. The cottage is very rural and other than the neighbour Paco you will probably be alone the whole time. Paco is very friendly and has some lovely cats including two 35 day old kittens which he was kind enough to show us. The black BMW is no longer parked outside as per the instructions but it's not hard to find the spot about 30m from the building. The bed in the master is a bit collapsed in the middle so could do with a new mattress but this small issue is not a big deal overall. I would definitely recommend Greg's place!

We had a great time in this house in Castril. The surroundings are beautiful! Just like the pictures. We enjoyed our daily breakfast at the private terrace with lake view. We did nice hikes and haven't seen any other tourists. There are good facilities in the house and Castril is a friendly little town. Not speaking Spanish could be a problem, but the neighbour can use sign language and locals are likeable and patient.
