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 traditional country house. It was bought by my grandparents, Francisco Ontiveros nicknamed (Frasquito el batata) and Carmen Valera, a humble family of farmers, in the 30s. Property that my mother inherited Carmen Ontiveros (Carmensita la batata) 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.
Currently my sons, Alberto López and Balbino López, and myself, Balbino López Ontiveros, run El Cortijillo Ecological Agrotourism. We are lovers of nature, organic farming and gastronomy.
Dedicated to tourism, agriculture and the promotion of our cultures, customs, gastronomy. Sale of the best organic oil in the world and the most awarded in the history of Spain (Rincón de la Subbética).
