This former water mill – Cortijo los Arcos – from the Moorish period is located in the middle of nature. Cortijo Los Arcos is a robust and comfortable house with thick walls that keep the heat out in the summer and the heat in during the colder periods. Above the house is the original wall through which the water channel runs, which leads to the old millstones that are still in a room next to the house.

On a slightly higher terrace next to the house (so safe for children), an old water basin has been converted into a swimming pool (6 by 6 metres) that can be used from early June to September. From the pool and terrace you have an unobstructed view of the valley. In front of the house is a partially covered terrace with beautiful views of the valley and the Sierra de Alhamilla. On the side of the house is also a terrace that offers shade by the palm tree. The grounds around the house flow into a sparsely vegetated landscape with almond trees, olive trees, agaves and a single palm tree and some old cortijos (farmer’s house).

Surroundings Cortijo Los Arcos

The house is 3 km from Nijar and can be reached via a mountain road. The last 200 meters is a well-maintained country road. Beautiful walks can be made from the house. Like in about 40 minutes via a beautiful mule track to Nijar, past the old water mills, or to the small village of Huebro which is slightly higher up, about 20 minutes walk. In Huebro there is one bar/restaurant with regional meals, for example Patates a la Pobre (potatoes with onions and green, long peppers). Nijar is a lively village known for its ceramics and rugs made in the region. From here it is a half hour drive to the beaches of the Cabo de Gata Natural Park. Almería is about half an hour’s drive away.

Prachtig gelegen, zeer ruim huis.

Rated 4 out of 5

Heel rustig gelegen met een mooi uitzicht, ruim terras en een mooie tuin. Gebied is prachtig: mooie bergen en stranden (zonder hoogbouw) in de buurt. Steden en dorpen prima bereikbaar. Keuken: heel goed met heel veel keukenspullen. Ruime badkamers, goede bedden en ook weer zeer ruim. De service van Taha was zeer goed en ze verdienen een dikke pluim!


Omliggende natuur is imposant.

Rated 5 out of 5

Was een heerlijk huis. Goed verzorgd en van alle gemakken voorzien. Erg mooi gebied zeker voor herhaling vatbaar. Ruime badkamers. Goed geoutilleerd, prettige sfeer en voldoende comfort. Groter dan het van de foto’s lijkt. Keurig verzorgd en ruim toereikend. Slaapkamers beschikken over goede bedden, voldoende ruimte en opbergmogelijkheden. Kortom: prima huis. We hebben er erg van genoten. Voor herhaling vatbaar. Met name de geisoleerde ligging en toch de mogelijkheid om makkelijk contact te zoeken. Auto is een must.
