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.

We have stayed in many houses with views in Europe over the years, but this is undoubtedly the best. The house is on a very small plot but the view makes it feel vast. Dont be fooled by the pool pictures, it is really just a puddle with a Jacuzzi (which runs for just 30 seconds before you have to get out and switch it back on!) - not for swimming. Pool lights didnt work. We were here for Christmas so it was too cold anyway, although we tried it! The sea in Scotland is warmer. House is very elegantly decorated and we only had one problem and that was with the heating which if you come at any other time will not be an issue. The owner had not bothered to get the place opened up before we arrived, despite our requests and it took 3 days to warm it up - at over 600m it gets cold as soon as the sun disappears around 4pm and stays cold until 11am. Wood for the fire was stored outside (even though we were told it was all under cover) in bags and the week before they had had torrential rains so we had to collect our own - something we did on our walks so no real hassle but certainly a lack of thought on his part. Local village is friendly and there is very easy access to Malaga (the market is a must), Granada etc . Do book the Alhambra before you go - we assumed that it would be less busy at Christmas but it was fully booked when we got there - their website is a mess. Granada itself is still well worth a visit. All in all we had a lovely time despite the lack of help and the view alone was the worth booking.
