This year we went to Finca Amorosa for a week and we could hardly have made a better choice. The villa housed us all in comfort and had everything needed for our stay. Alan and Nancy were perfect hosts; making sure we had everything we needed without intruding. We were extremely lucky with the weather and were able to sit out in the sun on the beautiful terrace. The wood burning stove in the living room kept us warm in the evening. There are good restaurants close by, from friendly village eateries to an elegant establishment up the hill for a special occasion and the village supermarket had everything we needed. You don't need to buy oranges, lemons or eggs, though, as these are all available to pick or collect on the estate. We had a great time in a beautiful part of Spain. Many thanks, Alan and Nancy.

Yes, you do need a car to make the most of the area but El Rancho is well placed to explore the fabulous Andalusian region. Although if you just want a relaxing time lounging by the pool and soaking in the hot tub then you can. Enjoyed a riding lesson on the lovely grey Havana, leaving Jeremy to enjoy the pool area - win/win. However, what made this holiday special is Jacqui and Garret themselves, nothing was too much trouble, always helpful, definitely over and above what you expect. It was like we became part of their extended family such a bonus and privilege, looking forward to returning - our first visit will not be our last.
