Fantastic holiday :-)

5 of 5
Our experience at Casa Feliz was amazing. Guilia was exceptional - by far the best host we have every experienced at any of the many villas we have stayed in. Her attention to detail to make this a 'home from home' villa was great - she had literally thought of everything. She gave us really useful info on what to do and where to go and even brought us a bottle of bubbly for our wedding anniversary. A truly lovely house with amazing views - 9 fabulous days spent with beautiful weather...we would love to go back!

A wonderful base in Andalusia

4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our week long sojourn and it served its purpose as a great base from which to explore Andalusia. Our two boys aged 4 and 6 were mesmerised by the patio layout with the lemon tree and having a park less than 50m down the lane was a huge blessing. It is remote so does require some planning when it comes to meals etc but no real trouble with Google and Anne's excellent information pack. All in all a lovely rural idyll.
