Accommodation & Facilities
Originally part of the working arable farm that surrounds the property, Cortijo Lorenzo, was recently rebuilt on its original site and transformed into a welcoming retreat. By recycling much of the original building material, El Amparo has retained much of its charm, with a wealth of exposed timbers and vaulted ceilings.
An open log fire adds the finishing touches to a traditional Andalucian lounge/dining room. During the winter period, all rooms benefit from under-floor heating with air conditioning for the summer.
Breakfast and other meals are served in the dining room, whilst during the warmer months, the courtyard, sun terrace and pool side, offer alternative choices for entertaining.
There is an area for reading, relaxing or watching a movie plus a vast library of both fictional and informative books. Details of carefully researched walking and cycling routes are also available for El Amparo guests.
WiFi is also available in the guest’s lounge!
Within the grounds is a 15 metre swimming pool, as well as a jacuzzi kept at a constant 35°C. A garden, sun terrace, patio and numerous other areas for relaxation surround the house.
