A great place to stay in winter

The house was perfectly placed for us a beautiful setting in a lovely Spanish village. It has everything you could possibly need with the owners on hand to help with the smallest thing.

Comfortable, clean and a pleasure to stay in this fabulous property

5 of 5
Our hosts made us feel very much at home and provided valuable tips on the surrounding area and of the local village. The house was very comfortable and with a great log burning stove, we survived the chilly but hugely sunny January weather of Andalucia in our townhouse in pretty village of Corteconcepcion. A perfect place for long walks in the peaceful countryside and to enjoy not only the hospitality of Fran & Mike but also from the friendly locals. We cannot praise the house, our hosts or the area in general any higher than to say this is the perfect spot for a relaxed holiday....we will return for more. Harry & Wendy Clarke
