A tranquil villa in rural Andalucía.

5 of 5
A warm welcome from Leo and a fridge full of basic supplies in a well-stocked kitchen (our 3rd stay in Andalucía but the first where we've had matching wine glasses AND a corkscrew!) started off a fantastic 2-week holiday. A very restful place to stay, an easy car-ride to Ronda, with plenty to see in the surrounding area and some major sights an hour and a half (Antequera, Seville, Málaga) to two and a half hours (Granada, Cordoba) away. Leo's very hospitable and full of advice if you need it - without him we wouldn't have known about the prehistoric paintings in the Cuaves de Piletta or the Roman theatre at Acinipo close by, with it's fantastic views, despite having been in the area before - thanks again! The dogs were a delight and their good behaviour a tribute to Leo's training. The working farm next door barely imprinted on the peacefulness of the environment and the well tended olive groves made it typically Andalucían. The pool was just right and the garden beautiful - with the best fresh figs we've ever tasted! We're sure we'll be back next year. Rob and Andrea, Durham, England.
