Cortijos vs Village Houses


A cortijo is a type of traditional rural dwelling (also known as a Farmhouse in English) in the southern half of Spain. Will be close to, or on the outskirts of the hamlet or village; and normally have a plot of land or garden as part of the property.
Somewhere between a country house and a semidetached house is the village house (casa de pueblo). These have become more popular in recent decades as foreign buyers look elsewhere from the coast or rural areas and towards Spanish villages. However, these are quite old. Village houses are located in the village or hamlet.
