The property was a real find and the location and views were breathtaking, Antonio was great with a wonderful welcome pack, he was always on hand if you wanted or also not, if you wanted to escape. The castle which is lit up at weekends behind the villa is beautiful.
I would advise you get a car as the trip out to see Granada and the Alambrah is fantastic and the carvings in the stone will take your breath away. Although the villa is in a valley the soft swoosh of the wind is enough for you to take stock of this stunning place.
Take binoculars as you may be lucky enough to see birds of prey and huge mountain goats with their young.
This was probably one of the best locations I have visited for a rural sanctuary.
Well done Antonio you get 10/10

We had a wonderful holiday here with 9 extra young people coming and going for the whole two weeks. It worked perfectly for this as there was so much space. The pool and kitchen next to the pool was excellent. We cooked every night and all sat round the table having a lot of fun.
The villa has been well restored and it was a very interesting place to stay and spotlessly clean. The pool was large and lovely and we often spent a whole day at the villa which was very peaceful and relaxing.
The nearby village of Algarineco has all that you need, and we were able to do early morning walks and runs along the very quiet roads that go through the olive groves.
The only downside was that it does take a long time to get to places. The nearest motorway is about three quarters of an hour away, but we were able to get to Granada and Cordoba for day trips. Priego de Cordoba and Montefrío are both also well worth visiting, and Priego has a very good supermarket. However, the driving was a small price to pay as you are well and truely off the tourist routes and we were able to appreciate rural Spain with no crowds.
Pino and Pedro do an excellent job cleaning and maintaining the villa and are very pleasant.
So, I would highly recommend this villa, particularly to those who are in a large family or friendship group and who want a peaceful holiday in unspoiled rural Spain. Great fun, great villa, great location.
