We can't say enough about the quality of the hospitality that we received from these two generous people. We travel at least a couple of times each year and we always stay in self-catering accommodations. This gîte was top notch. Judy had even left us with a much appreciated selection of basic food provisions, that were so welcomed, after a long flight and the drive up from Malaga. The marvellous weather and stunning scenery in this part of Spain only added to our enjoyment. We were thrilled to be in the countryside sharing, although briefly, the everyday lives of the Spanish people. Thanks Judy and Chris, you guys are amazing.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

After an hour's drive from Malaga we were very grateful for the beer and tapas they provided when they met us on arrival! This villa is located among the finest rural locations of all of Andalusia. Set high up in the hillside, it has gorgeous views of Lake Iznajar and the surrounding olive groves. Be prepared for a bit of an adventure on the final approach as there's a steep climb up to the villa through an olive grove before dropping down the last piece of the driveway (but no need for four-wheel drive!). It's worth it though as, once through the gate, you enter into a separate secluded and tranquil world. The pool area is a sheltered sun trap in the afternoon and the main patio in front of the villa is perfect for a late lunch while enjoying the views. The night skies are very dark and perfect for after-dinner stargazing. It's ideal for groups of friends sharing (like us) or bringing the whole family. Kids would love it. We found it to be a perfect base to explore the beautiful countryside, visiting Cordoba and Sevilla (longish but very easy drives), as well as nearby Iznajar, Antequerra and Rute. The villa is very spacious, comfortable and immaculately maintained by the owner and his family who are close by if needed. However, we found there was absolutely everything we needed during our stay. Oh, and we loved the traditional Spanish ambience of the property. Next time we come we'll stay closer to the villa as we now know there is much more to see in the nearby Subbetica region. Juan Carlos, thank you, we'll be back!
