Suffice to say it was the best holiday, the cortijo was extremely comfortable, and we fell in love with Salobrena. We want to do it again next year if we can.

Wir haben fast immer selbst gekocht oder gegrillt: alle Utensilien waren vorhanden und die Geräte funktionstüchtig. Die Einrichtung und Ausstattung des Hauses hat unseren Geschmack voll getroffen - die vielen Details der liebevollen Ausgestaltung haben wir nach und nach entdeckt. Der Kontakt zu dem Vermieter war 100% positiv: es gab eine perfekte Anreisebeschreibung, persönliche Schlüsselübergabe mit Einweisung und Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt. Und ganz wichtig: die Möglichkeit, im Notfall jederzeit Kontakt aufzunehmen. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder und empfehlen sehr gerne weiter :)) Nora, Petra und Hermann aus Kiel
