We were delighted but not surprised to find the house immaculate. Jenny is fastidious and provides everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. This allowed us to travel light, hand luggage only for the two weeks. Well the washing machine and Tarifa sunshine is perfect there's even an ironing board and iron ( didn't use it but it's there). There were a few new restaurants to try, can recommend No 6 just round the corner, great food, good value and very friendly staff. Roll on 2017, we look forward to another visit. As you probably guessed we loved Cass Ambrosia

The location is perfect, a couple of minutes walk into the old town, but in a quite location. Andrea was cheerful, friendly and informative. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends and family. Thank you, we will see you again soon.

                                                                                          I hoped that this place would live up to the pictures on the website, which seemed very nice. In fact it exceeded every expectation; the accommodation was more spacious than it looked, the rooms large and airy, the kitchen extremely well equipped (and I do love to cook, so to find it had sharp cook's knives and a really decent stick blender were a welcome surprise!) and everything was comfortable, clean and in excellent order. There is nothing "designer" or flashy about this place, but everything is simple, tasteful and entirely appropriate to the historic context of the building - a lovely old stable block with beautiful central courtyard. The floor tiles rustic terracotta, cotton rugs on the floor, simple country furniture. We loved sitting out on the covered terrace to have evening meals, the pretty (plumbago) hedge making our space private and sheltered, but still able to look across to the lovely old archway covered with beautiful climbing plants, one of which scented the air at night with a most exquisite perfume. The pool area with its views of distant hills and countryside, and the little sunken terrace surrounded with lavender and herbs, were so peaceful and lovely. Most of the time, there was a cooling breeze, which made it very pleasant to sit in the shade of the two magnificent old cork oaks. As for the hosts, Frank and Luisa, they were so welcoming and helpful, with many suggestions for things to do and places to go that you wouldn't find in any guide book, e.g. we had already decided to visit Ronda in our hired car, but Frank told us to drive instead, to the station at San Roque, about ten minutes away, where we easily parked for free, then take the train getting us to Ronda much quicker than the arduous road journey, brilliant! There were lovely walks to do from the house, to the lake etc, with astonishing wild flowers and butterflies. We loved seeing the storks on top of all the telegraph poles. The location is great, being within easy reach of Malaga, Ronda, Seville, Cadiz, Gibraltar etc. and many less well known local places being well worth a visit, such as Tarifa. In short, if you want to have the most relaxing possible holiday, but with loads of lovely places to visit and to see a bit of the "real" Spain, you couldn't do much better than this place.
