The apartment was well equipped, and very comfortable: the wooden beams and private terrace really appealed to us. Owner Ludet and his daughter Cynthia couldn't have been more helpful in terms of showing us around the apartment, plus helpful walking and restaurant tips. We're planning our next trip to Cortijo Prado Toro!

We were a little frustrated by the tall trees mentioned in another review, which block the view of the valley but not of the neighbour's roof terrace, and the other slight downside for us as learners of Spanish was that, because this is a very cosmopolitan area with many English-speaking residents, we didn't hear quite as much ambient Spanish as we would have liked. But these are minor gripes and overall I think five stars are justified. This really is the perfect place to forget about the car and walk as there are many footpaths leading in different directions from the village, including to the nearest supermarket and a very good vegetarian restaurant. Driving any distance takes a while as the roads twist and turn, but we did a trip to the sea and another to Granada, with some truly spectacular views along the way. A shorter drive will take you to other good places for walks.
