A Truly Enchanting Place, Beyond All Expectations. Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Christa and Pascal have created one of the most magical places we have ever stayed in. To begin with, on driving towards Alfarnatejo we were met with a spectacular landscape of undulating olive groves and craggy mountains. It looked as if it had been carved by an artist's hand. Every twist and turn of the road was breathtaking. Thankfully, considering the location, the roads are brilliant; sign posted and well lit.

Lots and lots to explore, especially if you're an adventurous climber or hiker. This is the stuff of childhood dreams with a rugged landscape of rocky hills, big boulders just begging to be explored.

On arrival we were equally enthralled with the beautiful and well maintained landscaped gardens and patio spaces. An abundance of trees, plants adorned the nooks and crannies where you could sit and contemplate the views.

There are various terraces including a place to play table tennis, a hammock, barbecue area, outdoor dining with lanterns etc. All very well thought out for their guests. The pool is fabulous, with views over the hills, it is kept pristine and covered at night. The surrounding pool terrace has full sun or shade if you like under the oak tree.

Inside is immaculate. Small but big enough for two and easy to manoeuvre around.

Our hosts immediately made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant and unique as they could. We had a welcome note and a bottle of good wine. Cupboards stocked with spices and every utensil. Towels for both the pool and shower that had been folded into swans! Lovely touches. Bedroom was lovely and the decor was tasteful and all spotlessly clean. A very high standard of decoration.

All windows have mosquito grills including the main door which meant we were not bitten and had no flies to deal with when cooking.

Christa's artist's touch is evident everywhere, which is particularly thrilling and lifts the space to another dimension. Pascale waters the plants daily and covers the pool at night, however they are respectful of your space and with the exception of them using the pool for an hour once a day, leave you to your own devices.

We, however, made new friends and spent some time in their company sharing food and interesting stories.

They are a wonderful couple who have and are still living an adventurous life. We were very privileged to have met them and have fallen in love with them and Alfarnatejo.

An Amazing Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

At the end of a country lane we reached the gate to Casa Christa and pressed the call button. Pascals' happy welcoming voice on the intercom was the prelude to a wonderful 5 nights in this little paradise called Casita Elisa, too short a stay by far!

The accommodation was perfect for us and we could not have wanted for a better host and hostess who made absolutely sure we had everything we needed whilst, at the same time, respecting our privacy and space. Christa and Pascal were there with help and advice, and it was lovely to hear their stories of Spain and their travels around the world.

There are so many wonderful spaces to be enjoyed around Casita Elisa, for those lazy periods or the moments when you are feeling a little more energetic. Gently swaying in the hammock to the sound of the birds and the distant goat bells, cooling off in the swimming pool or seeking revenge on the table tennis table!

The village is a short drive away and we enjoyed the market and the local activities, including helping to make a giant paella! Granada is an 80 minute drive and the Alhambra Palace is a must. We took Pascals' advice and booked a 90 minute guided tour, fascinating! If you want to dip your toes in the Med' the coast is just a 50 minute drive.

This was the perfect place for us to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and we shall be returning as soon as possible.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights here. The accommodation is new, and well maintained with everything you need. The gardens are wonderful, with lots of spaces (including the pool) to relax. The host, Christa, was very helpful and generous - providing us in with information on what to see in the area, a lift after a hike and wonderful treats like fresh cherries. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting to explore this beautiful area of Spain.

Where Peace Comes Dropping Slow........

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casita Elisa recently from 6th July to the 10th. It was our first trip to this part of Andalusia, a hidden gem of outstanding natural beauty known as the Pyrenees of the South.

Casita Elisa is hidden away in the grounds of Casa Christa amongst verdant trees and flowering shrubs, but is completely private, with it's own terrace & Barbeque area. There are spectacular views over the valleys towards the white town of Comares perched on the top of a distant mountain, and in the evening the lights of Comares twinkle gold under the a vast dome of stars.

The Casita has been renovated by owners Christa & Pascal to a high standard, and is tastefully furnished with a lot of attention to detail. There is a full size kitchen with modern appliances including a dishwasher. Upstairs there is a nice large bedroom with a comfortable 6ft bed & an adjoining bathroom.

On the terrace below the Casita is a swimming pool with adjacent shower and changing room. Here swallows sometimes swoop to drink the water as they fly by!

With apologies to WB Yeats, the following lines encapsulate for me the magical atmosphere and Nature which surrounds Casa Elisa.

''Where midnight's all aglimmer

and noon a purple glow

and evening full of the linnet's wings''

We found it to be a totally relaxing experience.

un cocon dans la montagne andalouse

  • 4 of 5

Nature, Calme et sérénité au milieu des montagnes andalouses, à moins d'une heure en voiture de Malaga. La propriété est magnifique, et Christa adorable ( nous n'avons pas rencontré Pascal qui était en déplacement). Nous recommandons vivement !
