                                                              Having used Owners Direct for some years now, we have enjoyed some fantastic accommodation in locations across Europe, but I have to say that Casa Convento is a bit special. The decor, facilities, cleanliness and comfort are all of the very highest level, making the house a pleasure to return to each day after discovering the surrounding area. Communication with the owner, Suzanne, was very straightforward with the directions and entry instructions being clear and easy to follow. The village itself is also a delight. Great bars and restaurants, friendly locals and a lovely relaxed ambiance make Canillas de Aceituna a fantastic and still largely undiscovered destination. I know its a cliche, but this really is "The Real Spain" and one which I cannot recommend highly enough. A huge thank you to all concerned.

                                                              Ideal base for an Andalucian holiday

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              Casa El Obispo was perfect for our family holiday to Spain. The setting is beautiful and the villa has everything you need - certainly value for money when you compare holiday cottage prices back in the UK. In terms of touring, the house feels very rural but it was a few minutes drive to nearby shops and cafes, and thirty minutes to the coast. During our stay we had a few issues but with Ray around, you have no need to worry. He can sort out any problem and is a font of local knowledge - he is a thoroughly nice bloke! In summary, we aren't the sort of family that returns to the same place for a holiday but we are seriously considering it this time. (I for one miss the warm and sunny Easter weather!)

                                                              Fantastic getaway

                                                              Highly recommended. Firstly, the location is stunning. Perched on the mountainside, the views down into the valley and up into the mountains are second to none, and whilst there is a house next door, it retains a feeling of seclusion. The pool has almost an 'infinity' feeling as the land drops steeply away. The outside area is spacious and great for relaxing in the sun (or shade). An earlier comment about noisy dogs next door did not reflect our experience. The next-door neighbour was very friendly and helpful -her dogs were fine (im no dog lover either) and they were no cause of disturbance. The local village (20 mins walk, <5 mins drive) is picturesque and has a few options for eating or drinking out, whilst the house itself is well equipped for cooking or bbq. The owner, Linda, was incredibly friendly and helpful with quick responses to any questions. We were very glad to have chosen this place and would happily return if we have an opportunity.
