Guilia was exceptional - by far the best host we have every experienced at any of the many villas we have stayed in. Her attention to detail to make this a 'home from home' villa was great - she had literally thought of everything. She gave us really useful info on what to do and where to go and even brought us a bottle of bubbly for our wedding anniversary. A truly lovely house with amazing views - 9 fabulous days spent with beautiful weather...we would love to go back!

We can't recommend this place highly enough. Fantastic accommodation, a real taste of Andalusia amongst the beautiful mountains with views to die for. Jacque and Garret are superb hosts and any recommendations for bars or restaurants will be good. With comfortable accommodation, lots of different areas to sit out and enjoy the views or the pools, El Rancho makes a great place for a family holiday. We can't wait to go back again!
