Handy for small supermarkets and petrol station and plenty of places to eat. Well situated for visiting Serania de Ronda, the Alcornocales or Sierra de Grazelema.

Joanna and her dog Ozo were friendly hosts. The garden is a generous with mandarin trees and other fruits. Ozo played with our youngest dog and there where plenty of space to go around with the dogs. The casa was wonderful with very equipment kitchen and a washing & drying machine. There are two bathrooms, which is very comfortable, but the water pressure was a little weak. There is no curtains or shutters in downstairs, which bothers us a bit, because we are use to privacy. Wifi worked well enough and that was very important to us, because we teleworking. That period were very cold (in particular nights and one day there where even 10 cm snowing). We bought a pellets heating (4 €/15 kg, we used about 20 sacks) and gas to warm water (gas is quite cheap in Spain) and also we paid the extra money (150 €) for electricity. The rural village is a beautiful with very friendly people and there are also some shops where you get some basic food items. It was a bit hard to drive around, because the roads are narrow and curved. We have a 5,4 m long van and it takes us about 1 hour to drive for the first 30 km in any direction. The vehicle is must.
