Tony and Sue were exceptionally welcoming, making us feel relaxed and welcome within minutes. The location was superb with views across the olive groves and so peaceful. The apartment was clean and well equipped including a much appreciated welcome pack, and the bed was just so comfy, haven't slept so well for ages. The terrace is ideal for BBQs and a sundowner. The local bar, only a 3 minute walk was full of friendly locals and Maria the landlady a character not to be missed. So much to see with more super views around every corner and plenty of places to eat, whatever you do , do not overlook this little gem - not to be missed.

We were spoilt for choice with the variety of terraces and areas to relax, unwind and enjoy the fabulous weather during our stay in November. We had a fantastic couple of weeks and spent many days relaxing and eating on the terraces with stunning views across the undulating hills and olive groves as far as the eyes could see. We didn’t travel too far afield, so made the most of the local restaurant / bar (Los Pajaritos), which always had a great atmosphere. Antonio (the owner) made us feel extremely welcome and the food was very good, especially the steaks. Antonio stocked an impressive gin selection and his G&T’s were huge, so rather fortunate that Casa Hiraeth was close enough to amble back to, at the end of an enjoyable evening. We also found the local shop exceptionally handy and being able to stroll down to get fresh bread in the mornings was a real bonus. We would thoroughly recommend Casa Hiraeth and its location, which we will definitely be coming back to explore further next year.
