About Nik Rainer
Nik, Jacqui, Rosie and George left the UK in 2003 to start their new life in Andalucia.
Having lived around the world and stayed in the best and the worst the world had to offer, we think we know what people want from a holiday.
We bought this old Spanish farm house, Casa Caballos and then later Villa San Cristobel because we love everything about this part of Spain. The food, the people, the architecture and just about everything here that makes you feel that you are alive!
We live here full time and are committed to our life here and providing a memorable holiday for you. With almost 10 years experience, we think we have cracked it!
Nik Rainer purchased this villa in 2005
Why Nik Rainer chose Loja
Villa San Cristobel is located in Puerto Blanquillo or White Haven, a small hamlet nestled in the Sierra Martilla, at the heart of Granada's olive growing region. Just an hour's drive from the coast, airport and Granada. The nearest villages; Zagra and Ventorres de San Jose, both retain a peaceful, traditional Andalucian way of life that is quickly disappearing on the coast and in many of the well visited Pueblo Blancos or 'White Villages' elsewhere. None of the Bars or Restaurants will appear in the Zagat or Michelin guides, however armed with a few Spanish words and a phrase book you will be welcomed by the friendly patrons and locals.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Have just spent two weeks at this villa in rural andalucia. The villa is in a wonderful position looking down a cross a valley to a lake and beyond. One of the great features of the villa is the terrace which has a very clever arrangement with overhead 'sails; which keeps the terrace shady all day making it a very comfortable place to laze about on. It had all the facilities one would expect and was very easy to live in for two weeks. Nik made everything straightforward so there were no difficulties with arranging the rental and the instructions for finding the property were clear and accurate. If you want a well appointed comfortable villa off the usual tourist track then this villa is highly recommended.
