We thpught it very beautiful. There are incredible views and the country surrounding the cottage has a savage beauty that is hard to grow tired of. When swimming in the gorgeous pool we could see the ruins of Ronda la Vieja on the horizon. The Polins gave a very warm and friendly welcome and made our stay very special. They were helpful and provide answers to any questions we had. The olive groves that surround the cottage and the animals who come to greet you every time you come back give a flavour of the real countryside we were staying in. Fabulous

Perfect in every way! A beautifully bright and spacious apartment with everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. Plenty of information, local guides, maps of the area available and speedy internet access through the apartment. Towels and bedding in abundance and of excellent quality, Some very lovely touches e.g.. when we opened the fridge there was a small tray with a bottle of fizz and 2 chilling glasses plus chocolate, which was very welcome! Fabulous roof terrace with great views of the mountains and the rooftops of Grazalema. A very tranquil place yet only a few minutes walk from the bustling square, which is the best place to stop for a drink and people watching. Another highlight of our stay was the magnificent municipal pool nestling in the mountains at Gastrobar "La Maroma" further up the hill from the main square in Grazalema. 2 euros entry fee to swim and lounge around for as long as you wish! We were fortunate to bump into Jack, the owner, during our stay - a very friendly, helpful host indeed. I would highly recommend this amazing apartment to anyone wanting to experience and explore Andalusia - and i hope to return some time in the not too distant future! Absolutely fabulous!
