Cortijo Rosa Blanca
A traditional Cortijo located in a picturesque valley in the heart of the Andalucian countryside
Cortijo Rosa Blanca has recently been renovated and landscaped to bring you the perfect villa wedding experience in Spain. A traditional Cortijo located in a picturesque valley in the heart of the Andalucian countryside yet only 20 minutes from the beaches of Marbella. Cortijo Rosa Blanca can sleep 20 guests in spacious accommodation and comes with over 6 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, orchards and woodland with space for weddings of up to 120 guests. The location of the Cortijo offers you a secret hideaway with a stunning backdrop of mountains and a pretty river running through the valley which finishes with a stunning waterfall and pool area where you can swim in the crystal clear spring water. The surrounding area is a nature reserve with an abundance of wildlife and interesting walks to enjoy whilst watching the sun setting over the mountains or watching it rise early morning from the sea. Tranquil beauty at its best.
The exterior of the property has been carefully designed to create an air of romance and charm, using an abundance of scented Mediterranean plants such as Jasmine, Lavender, Roses and Lilac with various terraces offering shaded reading areas, scented courtyards, vine covered dining pergolas and pretty vistas wherever you look. The perfect location for a dream wedding!
Pool, Bar & Dining Areas
A beautiful private area has been created for you and your guests to use during your stay that is separate to the wedding gardens and terraces. This keeps the wedding areas a little more special for your big day and also means that you can continue to use your private gardens and pool area on the day of your wedding whilst the set up is happening in a separate area. This pretty walled area leads from the main kitchen to a covered terrace with bar and seating area. A beautiful pergola covered in scented climbers covers a large wooden table where you and your guests can enjoy dining together in the shade. Next to this is the large swimming pool surrounded by sun terraces and shower. Also a perfect area for a chilled out post wedding pool party!
Your Wedding Day
On the day of your wedding, your guests will be greeted with a welcome drink in the central courtyard with its pretty fountain and jasmine covered walls, they will then be led to the woodland meadow where you wedding ceremony will be held in a fairytale setting. This area then leads up to the pretty cocktail gardens where champagne and canapés will be served and your guests can enjoy the beauty of their surroundings. Steps lead from the cocktail area to the stunning dining area where shade is offered by the Jacaranda trees during the day and at night they light the way when their pretty fairy lights come to life. After your relaxed dining, it is party time, which is held in the rear courtyard with its dance floor and evening bar area and is the perfect place for you and your guests to dance the night away!
The interior of the Cortijo has been beautifully decorated by Rachel Rose in a classic yet romantic style with antique flooring, wooden ceilings and a pretty selection of European antiques. Every room comes with seriously comfortable beds and the finest bed linens and luxurious bath towels. The accommodation is designed to offer you and your guests the maximum privacy and comfort for your stay, with the aim to be a luxurious home away from home.
