We are usually described as a bed and breakfast
or country hotel and yet we are so much more:
Our exclusive country hotel …
Our exclusive country hotel, Cortijo El Sarmiento is located in Andalusia, at the foot of the Sierra Cabrera, near the idyllic coastal town of Mojácar. 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 opportunity 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 vacation. 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 vacation 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 exclusive country hotel in Spain – 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 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. Of course, 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 capacity for 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 guestroom has air conditioning and central heating and a private terrace. And 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.
More about it here. Cheers!
Time to relax
A holiday should always be a time out for body, mind and soul.
No more rushing from one appointment to the next, but taking time for yourself …
Treat yourself to something special during your stay here at the Cortijo and forget the hustle and bustle and everyday stress in our small but fine wellness area with sauna. The ideal environment to switch off, let yourself be transported to another world, take a deep breath and feel yourself again.
According to our possibilities, we would like to contribute to a sustainable world. Our possibilities might only be small and simple but we really believe in the concept of „every little bit helps“ and started with putting our own house in order …
