Well worth the effort , this is a beautiful setting , the casita is well thought out with very comfortable bed , hob and fridge with a freezer section. We had plenty of hot water and the shower was powerful although there were only two of us and the house could fit a family of four. The owners were friendly and very helpful . The swimming pool area is unusual for U.K. residents as it was clean but had a lot of green algae and frogs but I think this is normal in Spain. It was a delight to sit in the shaded patio area looking at the views and listening to the water running and the frogs. We took our two dogs and they mixed easily with the owners dogs who are very placid. There is no wifi ( or tv ) in the house but you can relax in the large patio area or dining area attached to the main house and use the internet . There is a washing machine and washing line. We stayed in April and temperatures were unusually high at max 29-30*C , the house was always cool and we always slept well. Cabeza la vaca is a charming village with many bars and restaurants, a shop and tabac . This accommodation is perfect for a quiet , relaxing holiday in a beautiful area with stunning views.

                                                                                                  Nicely converted/renovated townhouse in a beautiful/typical Spanish village.

                                                                                                  5 of 5
                                                                                                  Perfect location for a couple like us. The accommodation itself has been thoughtfully converted/renovated to a high standard, and there was everything there that we needed. Unlike some self catering places, the kitchen is stocked with all the necessaries (oil, salt, pepper, washing up liquid etc), and combined with the very generous 'welcome' pack, this allowed us to hit the ground running, and not waste our time or money unnecessarily. Fran and Mike are extremely knowledgeable and well connected in the village, and did everything they could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The area is fascinating, beautiful and full of character, from the abundant wildlife to the beautiful (and very tasty) black pigs responsible for the famous Jamon Iberico. We were blessed with fine weather so sat round in the sunshine for long periods (drinking wine), but there's loads to see within a fairly small radius. Rural Spain at its very best and we will undoubtedly be back. Hasta pronto!
