Peaceful location, fabulous views and authentically Spain

4 of 5
Ruben and Carlos were attentive hosts. We appreciated the welcoming beer, cheese and melon. It was a fabulous property with plenty of space although difficult to find, maybe a sign at the top of the steep driveway would be useful as you can't see the villa from the top. We managed not having a 4x4 but needed a car with a bit more power than our rental car. The villa is amongst olive groves on the side of a hill and away from it all, perfect for what we wanted. The views of the sunsets over the lake were glorious. The bread van was a delight.The supermarket at Rute was easy to get to and sufficient for our needs. We visited Alhambra and Cordoba both within easy reach and the town of Iznajar was charming. We also found horse riding within a short drive. All in all it was a superb holiday. Thank you Ruben and Carlos

Wonderful 3 nights, if only we could have stayed longer!

5 of 5
Having done a lot of research on line, the wonderful La Casita more than lived up to our expectations. Easy to find on Tony's spot on directions, it has wonderful views from the private terrace, is immaculately clean, everything you need is provided along with many extra fine details and the welcome pack, as others have previously mentioned, is such a wonderful touch and so appreciated when you arrive. Tony and Sue's hospitality is second to none and the welcoming message, along with all the personalised information within the apartment, a lovely surprise. Sue's cooking was an absolute pleasure to experience, twice, and both her and Tony's company superb, if only we could have stayed a little longer! As Jill mentioned in the previous review, it was lovely to have an evening spent getting to know other guests too and was somewhat entertaining due to two delightful and funny teenagers, thank you Alex and Jack! Although we didn't spend a lot of down time by the pool, the time that we did was very relaxing and everything immaculately clean and lovely towels provided. Granada is easily accessible from here and we spent an afternoon in the wonderful Alhambra Palace and there are many local towns and of course the beautiful Lake Iznajar nearby. We would also recommend Antequera as a town to visit which is about a 30 minute drive away. We would have absolutely no hesitation it recommending this little oasis and if, like us, you love cats, Billy is the icing on the cake! Thank you Tony and Sue and hopefully see you soon. Judith and Paul
