Cortijo El Ejido is located in the countryside, just outside the small village of Mairena and about 20 mins from Ugijar. It is an architecturally designed country home combining the traditional style of the local Berber houses with a modern contemporary twist. The accommodation for rental is on the ground floor. We can comfortably fit 8 people and an additional 2 on futons. Alternatively smaller groups of 4 can be accommodated. Please inquire about this option.
Built with local materials and white washed walls the Cortijo is light, airy and very spacious. We have black slate floors, cool modern furniture, top notch wet rooms and sleek adobe and wood kitchens. The house is cooled in summer by an internal waterfall in the rear cortile and kept warm in winter by central heating.
Outside we have two hectares of olive and almond groves for guests to enjoy. We have a small pool for cooling off and a great terrace for outside dining and taking in the fantastic views. The pool is open from the around the end of May until mid September.

All guests will be met by our local agent who will provide all the necessary details about the house and the local services. We will not occupy the house during our guests stay ensuring complete privacy at all times.
Other things to note
The minimum stay is 4 nights. We have a simply Letting Agreement that we ask all guests to sign. We will send a copy on request and at time of booking.
The location map shown on this site for our house is incorrect. It shows the house in the town of Ugijar. We are actually in the countryside near the small village of Mairena, about 20 mins drive from Ugijar.
Guests are asked to treat our house as they own and to leave it in the condition that you find it. We do not allow pets and prefer guests to smoke outside. No outdoor fires or BBQ's allowed at anytime. The lighting of such devices is a criminal offence in this area due to the risk of wild fires during the summer months.
