About Chris Farquharson-Pratt

My love for Spain started in the 1970s when I started vacationing there with my young family. For many years, we owned a vacation flat in San Juan, close to Alicante in the Costa Del Sol. As a family, we spent many happy holidays there, building relationships with the local families, shopping in the local market and bodegas and watching my children grow. As family circumstances changed, we had to sell the flat but it had always been my intention to find another 'Home Away From Home' in Spain. As I approached retirement, I began to explore Spain more and ended up visiting Hinojares and found this beautiful house for sale. This is my second home that I visit regularly throughout the year. It is my pleasure to share it with you!

Chris Farquharson-Pratt purchased this house in 2010

Why Chris Farquharson-Pratt chose Hinojares

Hinojares allows me to fully immerse myself in the Spanish way of life, whether it's shopping for fresh produce, getting the Menu Del Dia in the local restaurant or spending long evenings sitting in the bar in the town square eating Tapas and watching the world go by.

What makes this house unique

This is a Spanish home, furnished and appointed as if a Spanish family were going to live there. Our good friend Carmen runs the local shop and is also our local property manager with connections to the local activities in Hinojares.

Perfect Escape

  • 4 out of 5
This home was a perfect escape for our family of 5 - off the beaten path and perfect for exploring the area. The property manager, Carmen, was welcoming - we met her at the local store and then followed her to the home through the narrow maze of roads. The home itself is quaint, like the pictures show its up a narrow walkway with a bench out front to sit on with your morning coffee. It has white washed walls and unique floor plan which gives it great character - from the main floor a few steps down to the kitchen and bath. The kitchen has all the amenities you need - including a nice welcome basket with local marmalade, bread and bottle of local (delicious) wine. Up to the 1st floor are 2 bedrooms - 1 double bed (not very comfy) and the other 2 twins. Up to the next floor is a single bed and rooftop terrace. The main floor has a dining area and living room with a fireplace. While our 3 teens kept busy at the nearby football field or relaxing with a book - the t.v. and dvd player didn't work and there was no wi-fi. I personally enjoyed being disconnected from it all.
The scenery and views in this part of Spain were breath taking - our daily drives were an adventure. One day we went to the Cueva de la Virgen de Tíscar and walked down to the waterfalls. There is a working monastery located at the top of the hill and a restaurant that looks very good - while we only had a glass of beer other patrons enjoyed what smelled to be a wonderful meal! We even found a path that led to the remaining ruins of a tower. Another day we took a day trip to Granada - while it was a 1.5 hr drive it was well worth the trip and probably our favorite city in Spain.
This was the perfect location for 4 days of our 2 week trip to Spain.
The owners were very responsive to my questions before our trip and while we were in country making our way. You will no doubt enjoy your stay here.

Authentic Spanish experience

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed at Casa Cazorla for a week over New Year, in time to particpate in the local Three Kings' celebrations. We found the house comfortable and well-stocked with wood for the burner, radiators and hot water bottles, all essential for this time of year! We particularly enjoyed lunch on the roof terrace, an oasis of calm that is also a gorgeous suntrap. The house is well-equipped and we particularly appreciated all the toys and puzzles for the children and the dvds for all of us. The local area is stunning, little known to the English but very popular with the Spanish, and with good reason. A week in the mountains enjoying the pristine nature is the perfect tonic. We particularly loved the easy access into the Cazorla National Park, and the variety of activities available, from exploring local towns - we loved the riverside walk in Castril and exploring Cazorla - to discovering waterfalls and trout rivers. The information provided to help you explore is excellent. Plus the local manager is English and very helpful and friendly. Do check out the local pizzeria - huge, fabulous pizzas and great value for money. Casa Cazorla provides the ideal base for exploring this beautiful corner of Spain.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Ruth for that review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Cazorla and hope you will come again. We too love the ease of access to the national park and the riverside walks both in Cazorla and Castril. We feel the village is so friendly and the locals are so helpful too that it makes an ideal place for an enjoyable Spanish experience.

Outstanding house in a beautiful area

  • 5 out of 5
Hinojares was a longish but easy drive from Malaga and easy to find with excellent parking when we got there.

The village is like a postcard picture and immaculate but very much lived in by the friendly local community. With pretty rudimentary Spanish we got to know our neighbours.

The house is a typical, old, Spanish 'cottage' with beamed ceilings. It was spotlessly clean, much better equipped than anywhere we've rented before and so much more homely with eg dvds, books, magazines, games, plenty of decent kitchen equipment, even lots of toilet rolls, soap, washing machine liquid etc. We've been to loads of places where you have to find a shop asap or risk running out in a day or two! Not many welcome packs include homemade marmalade and wine but ours did!

The information book in the house gives lots of clear instructions (with photos) about how to get to various places of interest - we used it alot.

The local pizza restaurant made the best pizza I've had in a long time. We also particularly liked Restaurante 'La Bolera' at Embalse de Bolera.

The village stables gave us the chance to ride in the Carzorla national park, guided by Jesus the owner and his bilingual assistant. The horses are beautiful and there are rides for all abilities. We saw some non-riders being instructed on safety and the basics, but we had the chance to gallop across the sierra. The hats provided were good quality.

My husband, who is a beach lover, didn't miss the beach at all with some fabulous pools not too far away at Pozo Alcon and Castril - clean, cheap and with good changing facilities. We also went to Freila Beach and (our favourite) Embalse de Bolera - resevoirs of great beauty.

The weather during our July stay was hot and sunny and around 30 degrees.

We would recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in 'real' Spain away from tacky, expensive and crowded tourist traps. It's peaceful and typically Spanish with the village being silent during the afternoon siesta, and residents out and about and sociable morning and evening - go with the flow and join in. (Siesta time is great for having swimming pools to yourself!)

Our teenagers loved it and want to go again. We think that anyone able to manage slopey streets and quite steep stairs would be physically fine. And if you are looking for a non-commercial, unpretentious taste of Andalucia, fabulous mountain scenery and village life, Hinojares is the place for you. We're going to go again!
