Great facilities and large grounds. Would highly recommend for a Spanish getaway. Wonderful hiking area with the beautiful wild mountains as your backdrop. Peaceful retreat away from all hussle but with easy access to local villages and towns. Our little boy loved it! Thank you.

The house and gardens gave the two families the opportunity to get together or to do our own things as we pleased. We did not venture far in order to enjoy the wonderful pool and weather. We really enjoyed watching the butterflies and dragonflies. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
