About Stephen Todd

Stephen Todd is an architect who retired in 1997 and accidentally started to adopt abandoned dogs and cats, currently seven of each.

Jackie Todd wrote about moving to Spain and adopting the animals. Her book 'Dog Days in Andalucia' is available from Amazon. Sadly Jackie died in 2010.

Stephen has since been extraordinarily lucky and married Patricia. He speaks Spanish and lives close by his rental properties providing on site help when needed.

Stephen Todd purchased this house in 1992

Why Stephen Todd chose Frigiliana

You only have to walk in to La Casa Rosa to be transported to a world of Arabian nights. This stunning house was part of a group of flour and olive mills driven by water brought from the mountains in channels built by the Moors. It has been sensitively converted to maintain the character and beautifully decorated with handmade tiles and original ceramics and paintings.

February get away at La Molineta

  • 3 of 5

We had the most beautiful weather at La Molineta, the days were very sunny, and we relaxed and read books, of which there is a great supply at the house. The house in itself was very nice, but we were very early season, and we were not prepared for how cold it would be in the late afternoon and evening, and lighting the wood burner every evening in the sitting room was certainly a necessity rather than a nice to have. There were some at the house, but we needed to purchase four large sacks for our two week stay. The upstairs bedroom was also lovely, but cold, with as promised a wonderful view from the terrace off the bathroom. The electric blanket unfortunately did not work on our arrival, and was not replaced until the last few days of our holiday, there was also no additional heat in that room apart from a very weak heat from the air con unit. But Stephen purchased a new oil heater also in the last few days which made a big difference. We wanted to eat at home, we enjoy cooking, and the available produce in the area is extremely good. However, we had many problems with the hob, with gas blowouts occuring regularly. Several things were changed but they did not solve the problem, and in the end we did most of our cooking in the oven. The hob needs replacing.

The girls who came in to clean were fantastic and very thorough. The terrace was lovely with several sun loungers, an extremely private area catching all of the sunshine. In the late afternoon we moved up to the upstairs terrace for a last cup of tea in the sun. In the summer to sit outside and eat under the shaded area would be wonderful, where there were beautiful climbing plants and a nice BBQ. I think we just came a bit too early! It would be a delight in the summer months, the furnishings were good, the bed very comfy, especially after the new electric blanket had been received! Stephen was very nice, and very helpful, and we really appreciated him for trying to make our early stay at La Molineta a nice one.

A stunning traditional house with breath taking views from every angle .

  • 5 of 5

The first thing that struck me when getting home was how much I missed the colours . Sunrise through the beautiful bedroom window was worth waking up early for . Breakfast on the terrace , watching the colours change over the sea and mountains, was to be savoured . Sun bathing around the gorgeous pool area with the contrasting colours of a vibrant blue sky , white washed walls and the deep pink Bougainvillea will not be forgotten . G and T on the little bedroom terrace, at the front of the house , catching the last bit of sun over the mountains with my sister watching life go by .... heaven !

Thanks for everything Stephen. Good to see you again .

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Rosa exceeded all expectations. Initial impressions arriving late at night was of a homely traditional house, full of possibilities. The welcome bottle of wine was a lovely touch and much appreciated. Morning 1 allowed for full exploration of the house and garden - and all the extras. Beautiful balcony with fantastic views from the bedroom - great place for morning coffee or evening vino!. The outdoor patio area and pool provided much pleasure day and evening. We so looked forward to coming 'home' to the pool after exploring Frigliana and surrounding areas.

The house is very well equipped and easy to live in. The house and garden are very clean and well maintained.

Casa Rosa is a great base for exploring both the coast and inland areas of southern Granada.Thank you Stephen for providing such a wonderful house for our holiday. We certainly hope to be back. Liz George and Georgina (Ireland)

Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

We booked a few days at this lovely house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Patricia & Stephen made us very welcome and we joined them for a drink in the local bar. The informal and easy process of booking added to the delight of Casa Rosa. We are very happy to recommend it on condition it's available for our return visit!

Enchanting house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Rosa is a lovely house with magnificent views of the mountains from every window. During our 3 week stay it was cleaned twice a week to a high standard. The location is perfect. We walked into the white washed village of Frigiliana which is beautiful and Casa Rosa is just a few minutes drive to Nerja where there are many shops and restaurants and stunning beaches. Stephen the owner was very easy to book with and was always available if we needed him. He is a laid back no pressure kind of guy. He told us living in Spain has made him like that and we quite believe him! A wonderful holiday which one day we hope to repeat.

Beautiful spring

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 10 days in this beautiful house with a fantastic terrace. The bakery is rebuild in a nice atmosphere. A big living room, beautiful bedroom upstairs and big, nice badrooms. The house is very clean (an extra cleaning during the week) and comfortable. The owners live nearby and are very easy going and hospitable. The nearby village Frigliana (walking distance) is one of the most wonderful white villages in Andalusia. We enjoyed the nice hikes in the river with our dog and beautiful, sceneric terraces in Frigiliana. The coast village Nerja is a 10 minutes drive and one of the nicest coast villages in Andalusia.

Andalucia is the largest autonomous region of Spain with a fascinating history and rich cultural heritage. The people are laid back and welcoming, the countryside is magnificent and the climate is mild in winter and hot in summer.

Granada and the Alhambra Palace are not to be missed but the Old Town and harbour side in nearby Malaga are well worth a visit. Here you will find the Picasso Museum.

There is winter skiing in the nearby Sierra Nevada, water sports all along the coast and golf on championship courses.

Set on the edge of a National Park, Frigiliana has been awarded prizes for the most beautiful village in Spain. Cobbled streets with flower filled balconies and intimate shady courtyards transport the visitor back to the scented Arabian nights of the Moorish conquerors. There are fine restaurants and rustic bars with great local dishes and wines.

Each town and village has it´s own Saint´s day and colourful noisy fiestas. San Antonio on the 13th June in Frigiliana and San Isidro on the 15th May in Nerja.
