El Cortijillo Ecological Agrotourism

Where we come from

El Cortijillo, short for cortijo, a three-hectare olive grove in the municipality of Luque (Córdoba), with a house. It was bought by my grandparents, Francisco Ontiveros nicknamed (Frasquito the sweet potato) and Carmen Valera, a humble family of farmers, in 1946. Property that my mother inherited Carmen Ontiveros (Carmensita the sweet potato) and later inherited from my mother in the year 1985.

In 2002 I decided to switch from conventional agriculture to organic farming. In 2005 the house was restored and it was decided to dedicate two lodgings for rural tourism, which gave its name to the ecological agrotourism of El Cortijillo.

Dedicated to tourism, agriculture and the promotion of our culture, customs, gastronomy and sale of our best liquid gold, extra virgin olive oil.


Rural house in the geographical center of Andalusia, 45 minutes / 60 km from Córdoba, 35 minutes / 45 km from Jaén, 60 minutes / 90 km from Granada km, 90 minutes / 130 km from Malaga and 120 minutes / 190 km from Seville. Located in the Subbética Natural Park, which is made up of 14 wonderful towns, with a diversity of flora, fauna and a diversity of landscapes for hiking in a cultural and gastronomic environment.

Organic garden to taste the seasonal products. Game track. Very large outdoor area in the middle of the countryside, and unobstructed views, in a sea of olive trees.

El Cortijillo is at the foot of the Green Way of Oil. A greenway is an old railway line that is in disuse, but which is reused for cycling, hiking and enjoying nature. This greenway offers a multitude of activities for family leisure, such as geobiking, geotourism, ecotourism or wine tourism.
