Gorgeous property, well located, well specced and with bags of character.

4 of 5
Sitting on the lovely terrace at night with a G&T was so relaxing and it became a real effort to go out! The view across to the fields opposite filled our evenings. Some really nice villages nearby with great food (Grazalema and Zahara spring to mind). Thoroughly recommend it and hope to return sometime.

Stunning views, great property.

5 of 5
The property was fantastic, well set up for families. Fantastic view of Zahara and the mountains - we were blown away. Perfectly located for day trips in surrounding white villages and the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the pool, the scenery and Spain's culinary delights. We had a brilliant holiday. I highly recommend.
