Superb base for exploring the Sierra de Grazalema

5 of 5
Everything was here for a comfortable stay. Only one thing missing for English people, a kettle!

Great house

4 of 5
Booked the house for a group of 6 adults and 4 kids. Mike was very communicative throughout the process and was always available to answer any questions for us. The house is brilliant and well equipped. Plenty of room for all of us and being spread over three seperate units offers privacy as well if you need it. The village is a short walk away with a couple of tapas bars, however plan ahead as the opening hours can vary. La Casita was a reliable alternative which is usually open and provides good options though not local. Do try the freshly fried fish and grilled chicken available in the local shop in the village, they usually sell out very quickly. Ronda is a half hour drive away with plenty of options. We did have some niggles in the first two days as the property managers did not seem to be prepared for us. There was no hot water or firewood available and having arrived on the weekend we had to wait till Monday. Mike was easily reachable and made sure everything was sorted out as soon as possible. This is a great place to get away from the crowds and has plenty of options for trekking in the area
