Believe it when Nicky says it is secluded, the track to the cottage is about 1km long and fairly rough and winding. the cottage and gardens are beautiful it has everything that you need but is fairly basic. the double bed was very comfortable. The covered terrace is an excellent area of outside space for eating or just sitting and reading. The pool was great and much used by us, it is quite small and doesn't have a shallow end but that wasn't a problem for us. The local town is very nice and has everything that you need, shops bank etc. We had a nice relaxing time and a digital detox away from it all. Thanks Nicky

All the facilities were good and the accommodation worked really well for us. The pool is blessing at the end of a hard day walking or sightseeing. We visited Granada, Ronda, Malaga, Orgiva, Salobrena and Marbella. Went to several beaches and walked around the local area and having the odd lazy day at the house.
