This magnificent rustic hotel has typical Spanish patios, beautiful bedrooms, its own chapel where blessing ceremonies can be held and is surrounded by olive groves and sunflower fields.
The Cortijo is one of Granada’s best kept secrets. It has featured in many home and decoration magazines in Spain due to the delightful design of the Hotel and its bedrooms. The restoration works of the current Cortijo (farmhouse) started in the year 2002. Their main aim is to bring to light the most important and ancient architectural elements: columns, Arabian oil reservoirs, fireplaces, mangers… In this way the Cortijo was turned into an exclusive countryside accommodation that keeps the farm’s original flavour. The hotel currently has 14 double rooms some of which are family rooms and can accommodate up to 40 guests using supplementary beds.
The Cortijo is a special place for your wedding where you can have exclusive use for your friends and family in a magnificent setting, lasting for as long as you want.
The large terraces and chapel can cater for wedding parties of up to 200 guests. For those guests not staying in the hotel, minibuses can be arranged to take them to and from their hotels in Granada which is just 30 minutes away.
Real Weddings at the Cortijo del Marques:
I am so sorry not to have emailed you sooner we have just returned from honeymoon this week and turned off all forms of communication whilst away which was a real treat! We left Spain the day after our wedding and have had 3 fantastic weeks in South Africa and Mauritius and are now back to a rather wet London.
However, I have been wanting to write to you properly and thank you so much for everything you did for us for our wedding, we are so truly truly grateful for your help and assistance in the lead up to the wedding and across the whole weekend. I am sorry we didn’t get to say good bye to you properly on the wedding day in amongst the madness of photos etc.
We had the most amazing weekend of our lives and thanks to you and all your wonderful assistance and organisation we were really able to properly relax and not worry about a thing on the day! Everything ran very smoothly and all our guests said it was the best wedding they’d been to which is hugely down to you and Silvia putting so much work into it.
Here are some arty photos from Owen, it’s just a small selection we are waiting for the rest to come through but it tells a story of the day! http://owenfarrellphotography.com/blog/louise-luis-sept-8th-2012-cortijo-de-marques-granada-2/
I hope you have had a good September and I wish you all the best for the future.
We shall definitely be back to Granada and to stay at the Cortijo hopefully next year for our anniversary!
Louise and Luis
