It nestles at an altitude of 400 metres in the hills just 35 minutes drive inland from Malaga Airport in the Axarquia region of Andalusia in Southern Spain. The area benefits from its proximity to the coastal area but has generally remained unaffected by them so retains its local character and identity.

Riogordo is famous world-wide for its annual 'El Paso' at Easter; with a cast of over 400 inhabitants it is unique.

It also has numerous bars & shops still unspoiled by progress. Though most items you may need can be found.

The unique town of Comares can be seen ,clinging to it's mountain top it is visible throughout valley. It still has the remains of it's Moorish heritage. A town of narrow streets , a central plaza & stunning views of the Axarquia & the sea.

About Lisa Ehret

Julian and myself, lisa, purchased our dream home 15 years ago. I myself grew up in Spain but returned to UK where we married and started our family.

Our dream was to restore a CORTIJO in Andalucia.

So with our two young girls we started the project and made CORTIJO Cuscurro our dream family home. We converted the main Famhouse into a lovely home with lots of love and care retaining the traditional features, yet having all the mod cons we had become accustomed to. The a Bakery adjoining became a holiday rental. We have had many happy years providing our guests with a stunning and relaxing location to holiday.

We are delighted to have many good reviews and lots of returning guests,

Our girls left the nest 6 years ago and we have now moved locally to enable us to provide more accommodation to our guests.

We live locally and take pleasure in ensuring all goes well for our guests during their stay.

We are at the end of the phone should you need anything and visit by arrangement to clean the pool and jacuzzi spa.

Lisa Ehret purchased this farmhouse in 1999

Why Lisa Ehret chose Riogordo

CORTIJO Cuscurro is for guests who enjoy seclusion, relaxation with stunning views all round.

We fell in love with the views and nature that surrounds Cuscurro, and we know you will too.

There is everything you could possibly need in the CORTIJO. This is more a home than a rental.

Riogordo is nearby with tapas bars , shops, great butchers, bakers . All at cheap non tourist area prices

What makes this farmhouse unique

The Vaulted lounge is such a pleasure.

New this year we have a fire pit. It's been a great hit so far.


Lots of space and privacy for large groups.

The features of this property are never ending.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pictures do not do this cottage justice. The cottage itself is lovely with good size bedrooms and great kitchen. The outdoor barbecue is also great for cooking. The pool is stunning and the views from the pool have to be seen to be believed. The location is fantastic and the local village has great bars and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here - we are definitely going back it is absolutely fantastic.

Place was excellent

  • 4 of 5

The Villa was to a good standard. The Owners were very professional and provided us with all the information we needed. The only thing I didn't like was the Villa was far from children's activities and roads were too narrow and found it difficult to drive. Because of the heat there were too many lizards coming into the villa which I was afraid of. However everything else was top notch

15 of us had a great stay at Cortijo Cuscurro. Check in and check out was all very easy and Lisa was on hand if we had any questions. I would definitely recommend the paella, it was well worth it!

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had high expectations of thr property and surrounding area from seeing the photos, we were blown away in reality!

Lisa and Julian have put love and care into the farmhouse and outer buildings. We were left wanting for nothing as the kitchen and house were extremely well equipped. The furnishings and decor are stylish and of great quality with a touch iof shabby chic..all adding to the ambience of this stunning holiday home.

An unexpected bonus was the sound system, after changing to more modern convenient speakers and tablets etc we had forgotten how sublime music sounds on a good system! There was even a cable to connect it to our phones. We will be reverting back to a real sound system!! The music coupled with the amazing views made each day feel like living in a movie or dream!

The local town of Rigordio was pleasant and traditional and the supermarket though small well stocked. We highly recommend the local wine sold in cartons especially the rose!

We were only there for a long weekend due to work commitments so we were gutted to leave.We definitely plan to return for a longer holiday and can't wait to drive around more of the surrounding villages.

Lisa and Julian are a lovely couple who have created a wonderful home and holiday experience for anyone who wishing to get away from it all and experience the real Spain.

If you prefer to while the hours in the jakuzi or by the pool, chase the sun on many terraces, lounge on the outside sofas with a book, eat alfresco complete with stunning views or nip out for beer and tapas even drive into Malaga should you wish thus is the one for you!! Certainly for us!

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

Myself & family had a great holiday here in Corjico Cuscurro. The house has plenty of room & a fantastic pool with amazing views. Everything is thought of to make your holiday hassle free. The house was very clean & tidy for our arrival. The owners were very helpful. The property is very well maintained. I would thoroughly recommend this holiday home & will most definately be returning myself 😀?

Idyllic secluded spot in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Cortijo Cuscurro - the farmhouse and cottage were lovely, authentic, well kept and really well equipped. We went out for a couple of day trips to Nerja and Malaga but mostly chilled out around the pool and in the house (it was very hot during the time we were there). There's plenty of space so everyone could do there own thing - we were a mixture of teenagers and adults and we all really enjoyed the space. The local countryside was stunning and we spent a couple of lovely evenings in the local village and found the locals really friendly. The house is a bit of a distance from shops and entertainment but we enjoyed the seclusion - worth stocking up on food en route though. The kitchen and barbecue area were great for cooking with everything that you could need - we particularly liked the coffee machine! The owners were really friendly, helpful and responsive when we contacted them. Everything ran very smoothly and we had a fabulous week. Would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Dear Sarah, So pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Cortijo Cuscurro. Thank you for taking the time to review the Cortijo. Not sure if you managed to get to Bar Ortega, this bar Restaurant is just a few minutes away and in the local Village you have several supermarkets, bakers, butchers, a market ,however as you say if you want the hypermarkets, its a drive to Torre del Mar. Cortijo Cuscurro, most certainly gives large groups space, in a very tranquil idyllic surroundings. We hope we can welcome you back some time in the future. Great Family, and you left the house in great order. Thanks again Lisa and Julian
