This morning we drove up to the estepa above las Negras and took the dogs for a walk around this wild plateau, calling at the retreat Bornos. We rented a cortijo on the estepa, near Fernán Pérez, for twenty months four years ago and the community at Bornos were our nearest neighbours.
Bornos is a cluster of buildings, including an old mill, which have been restored using original and basic materials. It is owned by two German sisters, Beatriz and Jennifer. Jennifer was home and showed us around.
It was interesting to look around Bornos again. Inside we liked the old stone and wood structures.
The patios are also very attractive.
It was good to see they still kept chickens ….
…. and small, black pigs had their own corral.
