La cour devant la maison, le jardin, ainsi que la pièce ouverte sur trois côtés, dans la tour, qui bénéficie constamment d'un vent frais, ainsi que la maison elle-même offrent la fraîcheur souhaitable. La maison est bien équipée, les lits confortables. Seul (petit) inconvénient: le bruit du vent (probablement parce que nous sommes venus en avril) dans les fenêtres le soir (il faut alors les fixer avec un carton pour les empêcher de vibrer). La maison est idéalement située pour visiter les villages blancs. Nous y retournerons certainement lors de notre prochain séjour en Andalousie et la recommandons. P & P

Our host, Joaquin, went out of his way to welcome us and to ensure that we had a comfortable stay - he even brought us some home-made almond biscuits mid-week! We couldn't have wished for more. We can highly recommend this property and hope to return ourselves one day.
