In the true vibe of the luxury camping phenomena Cortijo Vadillo celebrates the best of outdoor living with all the home comforts

Situated in the Sierra Sur of Jaen, Andalucia, Cortijo Vadillo opens its’ yurt doors to those wanting an alternative holiday experience in the heart of real Spain. In the true vibe of the luxury camping phenomena Cortijo Vadillo celebrates the best of outdoor living with all the home comforts. Set in a beautiful hidden valley it is both a perfect rural getaway and an exciting venue for group events.

Cortijo Vadillo, a newly opened yurt centre in Jaen, Andalucia, offers luxury camping along with group workshop spaces. Set up and run by a family the atmosphere is informal and welcoming. They have created an intimate and flexible space that is ecological and low impact on the surrounding natural environment. The centre will appeal to people on many different levels, and allows customers to build their holiday or event package to suit their needs.

Customers are provided with beds, bedding, towels and mosquito nets. There is not only a swimming pool on site, but also fresh spring water pools with a bar and restaurant, only a ten minutes walk away. The outdoors kitchen and vine-shaded dining area are perfect for enjoying long summer evenings and sampling local produce. Catering packages can be arranged to allow more time to simply chill out.

Cortijo Vadillo is surrounded by 30 acres of private oak and olive groves for customers to explore. There are grassy places beneath the olive trees to enjoy a lazy picnic lunch, private spaces for meditation and reflection, a small cave and rocky outcrops for the children to investigate. Cortijo Vadillo also offer the opportunity to experience an olive picking holiday in their olive groves, complete with olive oil tasting and visits to olive co-operatives and museums.

Access to the cities of Granada, Cordoba and Jaen is excellent, and many of the local towns boast ancient Moorish castles. Cortijo Vadillo itself is on the walking path for the Route of the Caliphs, which loops around Granada and Cordoba. The Mediterranean coast, the Sierra Nevada and Jaen’s Natural Parks of Cazorla and Segura are within easy reach for days out.

Walking and cycling in the Sierra Sur is virtually tourist free with plenty of good tracks, and the nearby Via Verde follows the old olive train network. Two person, 4x4 buggies can be hired to explore the local area. There is a wealth of both developed and undeveloped crags and climbing routes in the local area.

Previous holidaymakers at Cortijo Vadillo have commented on the incredible sense of relaxation at the centre, “I’ve never felt so relaxed in my life” said Charley. “What a lovely, romantic place” wrote a group of young women from Germany. And the highlight for Nic and his son was “lying on our beds counting shooting stars through the open top of the yurt.”

As a venue for group events Cortijo Vadillo has plenty to offer, and owners Sam Whalley and Laurel Smith say “we have created a venue that is not restrictive, stuffy or formal. This is a space where the customer is free to decide the purpose, focus and structure of their event, with the knowledge that we will provide the support necessary to make it an unforgettable experience.”

The main group area is The Roundhouse, a large space with wooden flooring and plenty of light. It is perfect for all types of group activities from yoga and tai chi, to drumming and singing, to meditation and talks. Informal discussions and teachings, and creative work, can be easily accommodated around the large table and workbench. There is also the traditional Spanish threshing circle with a view of the limestone cliff above the valley.

Catering packages are designed to accommodate the needs of the group, from self-catered to fully catered events. Activities, therapies, group facilitation and team building exercises (such as erecting the yurts and circus skills workshops) can also be built into the programme. Musical entertainment and a PA can be provided if desired.

At a recent Ceremonial Sweat Lodge Weekend a traditional American Indian Lodge was built, and customers can now arrange to experience this during their stay. The ceremonial leaders, Ron Evans and Jose Brown, said “What a wonderful weekend! Beautiful land, fabulous food, great company, we didn’t want to leave.”
