Large traditional Spanish farmhouse sleeping 15 with a stunning pool for families and groups of friends, near Granada

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Cortijo el Cachete, Loja, Granada, Andalucia, Spain, sleeps 10-15 in 12 bedrooms.

A beautiful, traditionally renovated Andalucian cortijo, perfectly designed for large group getaways. El Cachete is a 150 year old farmhouse set in 80 acres of beautiful olive groves. The cortijo was bought in 2000 and the owners, Jim and Mary Cairns, have done extensive work on the property to ensure that it can accommodate not only a large number of people (up to 15, plus a couple more children) but also a variety of activities, whilst putting minimal strain on the environment. The cortijo has been designed to be as eco-friendly as possible; the water is sourced from its own well and there are solar panels to heat the water.

Whatever you're looking for from a group holiday rental, this cortijo has it; whether that be swimming in the 20 metre long, 2.75 metre deep pool, soaking up the sun, playing ping pong, or seeking out one of the hidden cubby holes - perfect for reading or simply having some ‘me time’.

The Cortijo comfortably sleeps 15 in bedrooms as follows:
- 1 master bedroom, en suite, featuring a private balcony providing spectacular views of the pool and surrounding countryside, with steps leading directly down to the pool area
- 5 double/twin en suite
- 5 single en suite
- 1 further double bedroom
- 3 bed dorm/children’s bedroom sharing a family bathroom
(A couple of further beds may be possible by separate negotiation).

The kitchen is fully equipped with 10 hob burners, 2 ovens, 2 fridges, a microwave, triple sinks and a dishwasher. There is a large selection of pans and cooking equipment, a mini deep fat fryer, a Kitchen Aid food mixer (just in case you’re holidaying with any budding bakers) and to top it all off, an authentic pizza oven can be found by one of the two outside dining areas. A laundry room can be found close to the kitchen.

There are tables around the courtyard at the front of the property and also on the terrace at the rear; both provide shaded dining areas at different times of the day.

There are two separate living rooms within the house; the larger main sitting room has a television, piano, speakers and a bar area. The smaller room is a shady, calm area perfect for children to chill out.
