We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. It has everything you need while you are away from home. It is very roomy, with five bedrooms which would comfortably sleep twelve people (plus a baby or two). There is a self contained section downstairs that would sleep two adults and two children, and can be independent of the upstairs accommodation. There is plenty of room outside too, with a good sized pool, large table & brick built barbecue, and some fruit trees and grape vines. There is also a large patio area and garage.
We had problems. as our original flights were cancelled, and Lola was extremely kind and helpful - even collecting the first of our party to arrive, from the airport and showing him around the local area & house. She checked to see how we were coping in the heat wave, and responded quickly to any problems, and had them sorted out straight away.
Monasterio has a supermarket, individual shops (Green Grocer etc), lots of cafe's & bars & a good selection of places to eat.
We would definitely stay here again.
You need to hire a car and you really need someone who can speak Spanish too.
It was a little hard to find and 4.5km down a narrow windy road with a steep entrance to the properties. Well worth the effort , this is a beautiful setting , the casita is well thought out with very comfortable bed , hob and fridge with a freezer section. We had plenty of hot water and the shower was powerful although there were only two of us and the house could fit a family of four. The owners were friendly and very helpful . The swimming pool area is unusual for U.K. residents as it was clean but had a lot of green algae and frogs but I think this is normal in Spain. It was a delight to sit in the shaded patio area looking at the views and listening to the water running and the frogs. We took our two dogs and they mixed easily with the owners dogs who are very placid. There is no wifi ( or tv ) in the house but you can relax in the large patio area or dining area attached to the main house and use the internet . There is a washing machine and washing line. We stayed in April and temperatures were unusually high at max 29-30*C , the house was always cool and we always slept well. Cabeza la vaca is a charming village with many bars and restaurants, a shop and tabac .
This accommodation is perfect for a quiet , relaxing holiday in a beautiful area with stunning views.
