Bed and Breakfast in Andalusia

Cortijo El Sarmiento, a luxury B&B – with the nicest guests in the world.

A warm welcome to Cortijo El Sarmiento

a Luxury, “Adults-Only” Bed & Breakfast at the gates of Mojácar, Andalusia.

Have you ever had the feeling of arriving somewhere and instantly knowing
“This is it! That’s the kind of place, I’ve always been looking for!”?

And no, we are not talking about the Cortijo’s beautiful setting, or the pleasant scent of lavender that drifts through the air, or the stunning scenery that greets you when the beautiful Spanish morning sun comes up.

Nor do we talk about the attention to detail that you’ll notice everywhere, from the pristine yet cosy rooms to Cortijo’s Honesty bar or the delightful breakfast, that’s all made up of fresh regional ingredients.

We are talking about the amazing people you are going to meet while you are here: your fellow guests and your hosts.

It’s hard to describe, but the moment you set foot on Cortijo El Sarmiento, you’re going to feel at home, just much, much better.

Once in a while, we are all longing for a place that allows us to take a deep breath and let go …

Believe it! Cause how did one of the Cortijo guests put it recently?

Blue moons are very rare – so grab your chance and stay at
the best Cortijo ever.
Mr. and Mrs. Freshfield (U.K.)

If you’ve ever been longing for a tailored holiday, where your preferences and needs mattered – this is it.

Delightfully relaxing, or exciting and a bit adventurous – staying at the Cortijo offers you whatever your heart desires. “A few lazy hours at the pool, anyone?” or “Ready to take off to explore one of our hosts’ thrilling insider tips?” No matter how you decide, you’ll be guaranteed to have fun.

Like staying with close friends

As to your fellow guests – you’ll feel more like being among friends, exchanging witty observations and having amicable chats. If you stay at least a week, you might want to join one of Yvonne and Carsten’s high-in-demand dinner parties! Tasty home-made food, paired with Spanish wines (Yvonne is a professional sommelier, and she knows her stuff) and served with entertaining and inspiring dinner conversations as well as lots of laughter – a fabulous experience.

Mountains, beaches, art, culture, interesting people, colourful and vibrant villages, and even a desert – the options on the activities’ menu seem endless and all you have to do is choose.

If you like to do “your own thing”, enjoy great foods and wines, and get the kick out of being pampered, B&B Cortijo El Sarmiento is your place!

Because we are always there when you need something … and if not, we remain in the background.

We are usually described as a Bed and Breakfast in Andalusia, but yet we are so much more:

Our exclusive Bed and Breakfast …

Our exclusive B&B, Cortijo El Sarmiento is located in Andalusia, at the foot of the Sierra Cabrera, near the idyllic coastal town of Mojacar. By car, it’s less than ten minutes to the Costa de Almería, our part of the Mediterranean coast of Andalusia and its picturesque sandy beaches. For those of you who are not fond of swimming, no worries – the nearby surroundings offer plenty of opportunities for activities and relaxation. From hiking to cycling, from the only desert in Europe to the nearby mountains, from culture to going out – there is something there for everyone.

In the Cortijo itself, you will find pretty much everything that makes for a relaxing dream holiday. There are seven well-kept rooms, an inviting pool, and a neat, cosy SPA that’s also part of the inventory. In addition, you can sample Spanish delicacies from our gourmet kitchen and wines that make your heart beat faster.

In short, all prerequisites are in place to make this holiday a truly special one …
Magically – and holiday at its best!

If we had to describe our Cortijo with just a few words, it would be these:

Sunny, light-heartedly, full of sparkle and tremendously enjoyable

The main house of our Bed and Breakfast in Andalusia – full of charm and welcome little surprises …

Here’s where everyone meets. Gourmet evenings and a well-stocked wine fridge – a cosy dining area with lounge and “Honesty Bar”, and our inviting terrace with views of the Sierra Cabrera – they all invite you to put your palate, heart, and stomach into a holiday-mood.

On warm summer days, our pool provides the perfect refreshment in between, and on cooler days, the typical Spanish wood-burning fireplace in the lounge is the ideal place for a leisurely book. Above all, we’ve also got the appropriate reading material available for you: from murder mysteries to novels, to travel guides and literature about Andalusia. No matter what time of year you visit us – every day is a special day at Cortijo El Sarmiento.

Our friendly rooms – designed with love

Personable, individual, and entirely attuned to the preferences of our guests – this is what makes a holiday at the Cortijo a great experience for discriminating connoisseurs. In the well-kept and inviting guest area, only a few steps away from the main building, there is space for a maximum of 14 guests. (We intend to keep it that way so that we can continue to take our time to take care of each of our visitors …)

Our guests are accommodated in 7 rooms with a capacity of two persons. All rooms have their own bathroom with a spacious shower, a comfortable king-size double bed (180 x 200 cm), and they are all equipped with a safe. In addition, each guest room has air conditioning and central heating, and a private terrace. Of course, we also remembered to provide a hairdryer for you and bath towels for the pool or beach.

So true! And so, one of our favourite pastimes at the Cortijo is to enjoy a good wine together with our guests or to try out a new delicious recipe.

According to our possibilities, we would like to contribute to a sustainable world. Our possibilities might only be small and simple. However, we really believe in the concept of „every bit helps“. And thus started by putting our own house in order.
