Guestbook comments from the owner
We recently stayed at Diana´s beautiful home for a long weekend with 2 other couples (who had both stayed there previously) and it was just as previous reviewers have said. Diana (and her two lovely dogs) greeted us with drinks and we were left to relax. That was easy to do! It is the most incredibly peaceful place to stay. Diana cooked us fabulous dinners and prepared a lovely salad lunch for us before we left on Sunday. We made full use of her lovely pool and even found time for walking and sightseeing (the Algeciras to Granada train is a must) get on At San Pablo and get off at Benaojan when you can enjoy a relaxing lunch at Molino del Santo Hotel, before returning to La Almuna for one of Diana´s gastronomic dinners. One tip - as there is no ambient light, the night skies are absolutely amazing. We can´t wait to return. Thank you Diana.
