Cortijo el Sarmiento

At a leisurely pace, I drive my hire car along winding mountain roads. In the distance, the blue of the sea glistens. I leave the mountains of the Sierra Cabrera region behind me. Today, I was able to take in a lot of impressive nature. I walked over green hills and ended up in white villages. It is high time to give all these impressions a place...

I do that at Cortijo el Sarmiento. My guesthouse for this week. My 'own' white house. In my ochre room, I put my bag down. For a moment I plop down on the bed, but soon I realise that the outdoor life here is far too beautiful to stay inside. From my room, I walk downstairs with a book in my hand, where beds and large parasols look attractive. Soon I am deeply engrossed in my book while the pool water makes a rippling sound.

I am startled by an enthusiastic "Hola!" from owner Carsten. "Do you have anything to do tonight, Eliza?" He invites me to dinner at the Cortijo el Sarmiento restaurant. "A holiday is not successful without local delicacies, is it? I'll make sure you taste the best Spanish wines from the region too!" I smile and raise my hand. No doubt about it. Tonight I am sitting at the table of Carsten and Yvonne. A wonderful idea! For now, I will let all the impressions sink in. I doze off for a moment. If this is not a holiday...

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
