If you don't like peace and quiet and the sounds of singing birds,then don't go here. Stefan and Naomi were perfect hosts,willing to go out of their way to make your stay better,if that's possible. Nearby Orgiva is a lovely typical Spanish village with all amenities

We were wlecomed into this wonderful and well-equipped home by our hosts after a long day of travel, to find everything we needed to refresh and orient ourselves in a new location. It is a very charming property full of character and had everything we needed for the kids and the grandaprents, toys, books, maps, tea, hairdryers, firewood, etc. The gardens are tranquil and very beautiful in Andalucian light, and the kids delighted in all the chickens, ducks, geese, a turkey, lamas, a cat and two very friendly dogs. Kay and Bernie are truely wonderful hosts, very welcoming, full of local knowledge and tips and were extrememly helpful giving us lifts to Orgiva to get extra provisions. it was too cold to swim but the pool is a wonderful setting for hot weather. We hope to be back!
