El Cortijo de los Caballos in now under new management by me :)




Well after many years of searching I have finally found my 'Project Wedding Venue'. 

I found El Cortijo de los Caballos purely by chance when searching for a wedding venue for a client. The Cortijo was originally run as a small holiday complex in the 80's and 90's but has not been used much for a quite a few years now.

When I came to visit the Cortijo for the first time I realised I had finally found the perfect property for me to develop as a truly wonderful wedding venue and after a few discussions with the owners they decided to give me free reign with the Cortijo as luckily they wished to retire :)

Well it has turned out to be a slightly bigger project than I was originally looking for but I am embracing it and really enjoying getting my teeth stuck into the refurbishment of the 13 self catering apartments.  With an 8 month old daughter in tow this is not proving easy and I may have to knock on a few child minders doors over the next few weeks but I'm sure Scarlett Rose wont hold this against me as she will no doubt enjoy many a fun day splashing around in the lagoon swimming pool this summer!

I sent out a short email to local Wedding & Event planners and suppliers on Friday and my phone has not stopped ringing with impatient Wedding Planners wishing to view the Cortijo immediately - so an even busier week ahead for me.

I plan to use this blog to keep people up to date with the developments at the Cortijo with photos coming soon of the interior.  I will also post photos of our weddings & events when they happen.  If you have something you feel is worth me putting on here please feel free to get in touch.
