The accommodation is located within the Alpujarras Granadinas Natural Park, on the southern slope of the Sierra Nevada National Park at almost 5000 feet of altitude. It is a complex of five rural apartments that are accessed by a forest road of about two kilometers and oriented towards the south offering a wide panoramic view, reaching the sea and the mountains of Africa on clear days.

Although a recent construction, the Cortijo strictly keeps the Alpujarra architectural style of stone and wood. The different studios, houses, and apartment interiors are tastefully furnished and simply decorated in the traditional style. Arranged with each other in such a way that they grant total privacy and independence to the guests.

The gardens, which surround the farm are a subtle transition from the wild mountain to the most classic Nasrid garden, where native aromatic plants are combined with fruit orchards, and the most beautiful flowers and trees, with the murmur of the water from the fountains running through the gardens. For those days or moments in which you prefer to be relaxed in the Cortijo, enjoying its views, peace, silence, and tranquility, we suggest you go for a walk through the more than seven hectares of the property surrounded by oak hills and enjoy the round pool (open from May to September), which is conveniently removed from the apartments so that the tranquility of our guests is not altered at any time.

All apartments have a private bathroom and kitchen, in addition to a fireplace and direct access to the garden, some have a terrace and others have a porch.

The architect of this rural accommodation «Cortijo Prado Toro» is Donald Gray, who received the Rafael Manzano Prize in 2015 granted to a whole professional life dedicated to protecting Spanish architectural traditions, incorporating them into contemporary practice, updating and maintaining them alive.

Program

This experience will take you to:

  • To recover your link with nature, your true environment as a living being, the source of balance, healing and awareness.
  • To experience the connection with the soul, the feminine and creative dimension of human consciousness.
  • To develop trust, as a result of rooting with the earth and travel beyond your limits.
  • To explore the intuition, the silent knowledge, a gateway to the archetypal language of the right hemisphere.
  • To create sacred spaces where the “field” makes it easier for you to express your feelings.
  • To acquire a renewed and systemic vision of "your" inner world, that can give access to new relational forms.

Location

In the south of the imposing mountain range of the Sierra Nevada, La Alpujarra is located in one of the best-known regions of Andalusia. For centuries, this sunny land that faces the Mediterranean and the African continent, was inhabited by different cultures from Iberian, Greek and Roman peoples to Muslims and finally Christians.

It is not by chance the past and present attraction of this place. A cluster of coincidences modeled it as the closest thing to the mythical paradise. The Sierra Nevada protecting it to the north, Africa warming it from the south, and the Mediterranean refreshing it, agreed to create it. The Alpujarra has preserved its particular history, architecture, and excellent cuisine and has given rise to traditions, beliefs, arts, and festivals. Few places, throughout history, have kept their customs and traditions, their ways of life and their physiognomy so intact.

From the high peaks of Sierra Nevada to the Mediterranean coast, La Alpujarra is defined as an unparalleled succession of amazing landscapes, dotted with small white villages, hanging on impossible slopes or resting in magical valleys. The Alpujarra is a place for rest and adventure, of wild and ancestral nature, inscribed largely in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park and which constitutes a privileged environment to which UNESCO declared a Biosphere Reserve.

Being located one hour from the city of Granada, where the mythical fortress-palace of the Alhambra is located, and less than an hour from the Tropical Coast, all this gives us a wide range of possibilities for the enjoyment of the body and the soul, from traditional Arab baths to sightseen of ancient monuments, passing through beautiful tropical beaches and high snowy peaks surrounded by lush forests.
