Hi, my name is Carmel Saulino and I am the owner of Cortijo Carmela.
My husband Gennaro and I had a dream. We wanted move to southern Spain and start our own self catered luxury apartments. We both loved the warm weather and after having lived in various countries during our life together, we decided this was the place to hopefully ease into a gentler pace of life.
We spent 6 years researching and searching for the perfect location and property and in 2013 eventually found our paradise, here in the stunning Axarquia region, east of Malaga and close to Lake Viñuela.
18 months later in late 2016, our dream came to fruition. The result has to be seen to be believed! It has been the enduring dedication of our great construction team, whom we now call friends, that has enabled us to open our doors to you.
Today, we are proud to welcome you to a place that is serene and tranquil, blessed with spectacular vistas, where you can relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us in a very private setting.
Very sadly, during this time Gennaro was diagnosed with cancer, and after a 2 year battle I lost my beloved husband just before the completion of our dream.
With the help and support of family and friends and a great team of staff, I have continued our dream. I am proud of what we have achieved and invite you to become part Cortijo Carmela's success.
I look forward to welcoming you to our paradise.
