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

Everybody was happy. The surroundings were so beautiful - we went on some fabulous walks, the houses were clean and very comfortable and best of all the pool was just perfect. Best we've had. If you like nature this is a must - kittens, dogs, chickens, owls, reptiles. Just fantastic. Our host GJ was also very helpful and attentive and kind. Great stay.
