Our stay was all too short but while we were here it really felt like home. Gill had left a welcome pack for breakfast our first day and we shopped in the local market and shops so we could have some home-cooked meals (we had been driving through France and Spain for 5 days) and also ate in some of the nearby restaurants. We had everything we needed to make ourselves at home. There was only the two of us so we had plenty of room but there was enough room for four. Both bedrooms are a good size and having 2 bathrooms, one downstairs and the other upstairs with the bedrooms, was really useful. The roof terrace was a bonus and we made good use of it at lunch times and later watching the sun go down. We needed wifi to book the rest of our road trip in Spain and the connection speed was good.
We had our car and 2 bikes with us. Gill let us store the bikes in the cellar below the house. Would recommend to anyone wanting to experience life in an authentic spanish village.
We've just got back having rented Calle Paz for 4 weeks. The house had everything we needed to make our stay not just a holiday rental but a home. It has the benefit of 2 terraces, the roof terrace with sunbeds and views of both the sea and mountains and the other terrace is located off the kitchen at ground floor level. Both bedrooms have Juliet balconies and were well equipped.
Torrox Pueblo is a real Spanish village with white washed houses, red slate roofs and narrow streets. The Plaza which is a 2 minute walk from the house has 6 restaurants to choose from, all with al fresco dining.
Torrox Costa is a 50 minute downhill walk although there is a regular bus service for those less energetic.
The owner Gill was efficient, responded promptly on all correspondence and was a pleasure to deal with. Gill also met us on arrival to give us the guided tour of the house.
From the word 'go' Gill was the perfect host. She even cancelled my payment and sent a new qoute at a reduced rate because I was travelling alone even though I had the whole house. Knowing i was arriving late she surprised me by stocking up the fridge, free of charge, with wine, orange juice,water, milk, fruit, delicious seeded bread, jam, muesli, etc. There's even sun lotion in the bathroom! How kind and thoughtful. After Gary had given up his evening to see me into the property, I stood on the terrace and cried. I want to keep this perfect place secret but that would be selfish. If you want to be a tourist go to a hotel. If you want a real experience stay at Calle Paz (Peace Street . . . it lives up to it's name except for the delightful music of the local women's chatter beneath the Juliet balcony and the church clock, without which you would lose all sense of time). This place is peace on earth!
