The houses are semi-detached and connected by an interior door which allows their rental together or each one separately. Each house has 4 double rooms for 8 people, with 2 double beds and four single beds each, as well as 2 bathrooms.

Enjoy its magnificent views, light, nature and, above all, silence.

In Cortijo Jamaro we are very aware of climate change, so we try to reduce our impact on nature, whether via reforestation, recycling, reusing waste or giving second-hand objects in disused objects.

Jamaro is the nickname by which our maternal family has been known since our great-grandfather Antonio Avellaneda to our mother María Avellaneda. Today, Jamaro gives its name to a geographical area known as Jamaro area that includes several mountains and, therefore, to these houses called Cortijo Jamaro. 

The names almost always have a casual origin and Jamaro was not going to be an exception. Back in 1903, our young great-grandfather was assigned to do military service in Tetouan (Morocco) and after 2 hard years of tanning as a soldier, he is licensed and receives permission to return to his homeland, Cehegín. Before leaving, he decides to acquire a beautiful white donkey from some Berbers, and when asked about the name of the animal they indicate that it is called Jamaro (حمار). Thus, the newly licensed Antonio Avellaneda and his lustrous donkey Jamaro began the return journey of the 590 kilometers that separate both cities; and after 42 hard and tiring days of travel, finally, Jamaro stepped on cehegineras lands. Our great-grandfather "Arre Jamaro, arre" said so much to his lush white donkey that people eventually called him "Antonio, the Jamaro."

Four generations later, and thanks to a Berber friend, we discovered that Jamaro is Hamar (حمار) in Arabic and that it is not a name if it means “donkey”. So, although only in Arabic, our great-grandfather called his donkey "donkey", and ended up being known as "Antonio, the donkey".
