We are six adults (mix of couples and singles) that just came back from a full week at this house. The house is quite rural so if you are looking for easy walking distance to bars, restaurants, cafes, this is not the house for you. If, however, you are looking for a quiet and idyllic location where you can relax and do your own thing, this is the place to book. You have no neighbours and the house is not overlooked at any point, so you have full privacy. The house was well equipped with all required amenities for a large group and was laid out in a way that allowed all of us to socialize using all of the common areas, but also have "alone time" if required. We spent most of our days in one of the two outdoor eating areas by the pool overlooking the quiet fields and hills around us. There is a small Dia supermarket and a few restaurants in Valle de Abdalajis about a 5 min drive away, and your larger shopping trips can be done in Antequera which is about 15-20 mins away (e.g. Lidl, Carrefour, and Mercadona). All in all we would definitely book again if looking for another quiet and relaxing time away.
Once you have spent a day or two here it becomes harder to think about going anywhere else. Away from it all in your own piece of heaven fabulous views in all directions and only the ringing of goats bells in the distance. The pool is of a size even with twelve people in it does not feel crowded. Inside the house there is space for everyone to be together or find a quiet corner to relax and unwind before spending meal times on the patio.
The village has all you need and you feel like you found the real Spain. A laid back relaxed atmosphere and very friendly.
El Chorro is a nearby village with lakes like inland seas which are very good for swimming, boating and fishing. Retaurante El Kiosko over looks part of these and is worth a visit. Also here is the start of El Caminito Del Rey (the kings little path) a great way to see the wild side of the area on paths hundreds of feet up the sides of towering cliffs but perfectly safe. Look this up online as you must book in advance. Also book bus to return you to the start. When holidaying in this area a car is essential
Lastly have a great holiday and enjoy yourselves.
Gorgeous Spanish villa located in the stunning hills - it's impossible not to relax by the big pool and soak in the rolling hills. Perfect for a group wanting to relax.
Great facilities, air con, fans, and shutters in the rooms, spacious bedrooms and most with en suites. Fantastic kitchen with everything you could need.
Wonderful hosts, would definitely stay again!
Only an hour away from the coast, the location of the house is absolutely spectacular. Endless views of the rolling hills spotted with olive groves. It was so beautiful that we didn't really want to leave at all to do any touristy things. We totally relaxed and enjoyed just being "home". Every amenity you can think of is in this house! We cooked a lot and enjoyed the warm sun, light breeze and hearing the goats bells in the distance being shepherded up the mountain. On our days out we went to Ronda, Cordoba and Granada but really the best was being at the house, relaxing, swimming, playing games and reading. The night sky was also breathtaking. Due to the rural location of the house, having a 4 wheel drive vehicle is advised.
Gorgeous house with large living room, kitchen and pool. Had a superb stay with friends barbecuing, sunbathing and enjoying the serene surroundings.
Town close by for aperitifs too. Perfect for a romantic break or group of friends I would say.
Will definitely be going back again, fantastic hostess.
