The views are amazing, and we were very lucky to have good weather, especially in March, so sat outside taking in the fantastic view over the lake. Our host was very friendly and immensely helpful without being intrusive. I am always a bit apprehensive when arriving at a holiday apartment hoping that they are as good as the photo's. We needn't have worried, they are furnished to a high standard and everything you need is at hand. There are night lights in the bathrooms, which I thought were a great idea. The owner does have dogs, I am not a great dog lover but have to admit the dogs were friendly and were not noisy . There area between our apartment and the owners is fenced off and the pool can be reached through a gate. We were not brave enough to swim in the pool as it was a bit cold! I'm sure it is lovely in the warmer months. The nearby village of Rute is charming with some nice places to eat. Lucena and Antiquera are lovely towns within a 30min drive. I especially liked the market at Antiquera which Murri our host told us about. The Alhambra is about 1 hour away but well worth the visit. Overall I would say this is a fantastic place to stay away from the tourist track. We will definitely be considering staying here again. Thank you for being such a great host Murri, your knowledge of the area was amazing.

Roger and Elizabeth are top of their game. Everything in the rooms are 'just so' . We were in the 2/3 bed apartment with its own terrace and access to pool area. So quiet!!!!!!!!. Roger and Elizabeth gave us a tour of their adjoining property 'Casa Limon' Vivienda Rural VTAR?MA/01351. You can enter from road level via the front door into the Kitchen Living area, or you can enter at 1st floor level via the side of the property as the property is built into the hillside, then you have separate unimpeeded access to the pool, which is kept immaculate. Roger & Elizabeth are well respected in the locality, this was clear when we walked down to the 'locals' 2 bars a 1/4mile away. Roger knows all the places to have meals and drinks at local prices not tourist prices. His knowledge is second to none.

The setting, in an olive grove, is idyllic. The surrounding rolling countryside is all olive trees and vines, and the whole vast area is surrounded by distant mountains. It is really quiet. However, November may not be the best time to go. We had seven days of rain, and it was VERY cold, particularly at night. Gavin and Jermena, who live next door, were really kind and helpful, and provided us with an electric heater when we asked for it. If the weather had been better we would have done more travelling. Córdoba is very do-able and worth it. Seville is probably possible in a day, with an early start, likewise Granada. There is a major supermarket 15 minutes drive away, which is worth a trip in itself! If the sun shone, you wouldn't want to leave the apartment.
