The first view of village is from the road above and it looks just perfect from there. As you get into the village it gets better, then you are greeted at Bar Barcina (great food) like a returning friend. It was a nice and easy drive through the typically Andalucían village streets to drop off our bags, then Mike got in the car and found a parking spot for us. The house itself is spotlessly clean and had everything you would need for your stay. It is excellently presented and perfectly appointed. Also provided was a lovely welcome pack, including wine, water, homemade bread, produce from the garden, including eggs from Fran’s hens, and some excellent homemade marmalade. We had a wonderful holiday, made even better by Mike and Fran who are perfect and generous hosts. The local walks are easy to do and there are some friendly local bars and restaurants to try. It’s hard to do the place justice in a short review so I would simply say go and stay there and enjoy.
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. It has everything you need while you are away from home. It is very roomy, with five bedrooms which would comfortably sleep twelve people (plus a baby or two). There is a self contained section downstairs that would sleep two adults and two children, and can be independent of the upstairs accommodation. There is plenty of room outside too, with a good sized pool, large table & brick built barbecue, and some fruit trees and grape vines. There is also a large patio area and garage.
We had problems. as our original flights were cancelled, and Lola was extremely kind and helpful - even collecting the first of our party to arrive, from the airport and showing him around the local area & house. She checked to see how we were coping in the heat wave, and responded quickly to any problems, and had them sorted out straight away.
Monasterio has a supermarket, individual shops (Green Grocer etc), lots of cafe's & bars & a good selection of places to eat.
We would definitely stay here again.
You need to hire a car and you really need someone who can speak Spanish too.
