We can't say enough about the quality of the hospitality that we received from these two generous people. We travel at least a couple of times each year and we always stay in self-catering accommodations. This gîte was top notch. Judy had even left us with a much appreciated selection of basic food provisions, that were so welcomed, after a long flight and the drive up from Malaga. The marvellous weather and stunning scenery in this part of Spain only added to our enjoyment. We were thrilled to be in the countryside sharing, although briefly, the everyday lives of the Spanish people. Thanks Judy and Chris, you guys are amazing.

Gill is a lovely host who will do anything for you, she even took me to a local hospital for a prescription after leaving my medication at home and then to the chemist to collect it. Lovely walking in the area & lots of great places to visit within easy reach with a car. The Casita is quite small but has all the facilities you require & is finished to a high standard, with a lovely outside area to sit in.
