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.

Paradijs in Spanje

  • 5 of 5

In eerste instantie waren wij van plan 4 nachten in Casa Christa te blijven maar al snel hebben wij besloten, in samenspraak met Pascal en Christa ons verblijf met 2 nachten te verlengen. Casa Christa is een heerlijke plek om even bij te komen, te relaxen en een uniek gedeelte van Spanje te verkennen. Daarnaast zijn Pascal en Christa hele bijzondere mensen die 15 jaar lang over de wereld hebben gereisd in hun zeilboot en daar de meest prachtige verhalen over kunnen vertellen. Na dat avontuur zijn ze Casa Christa begonnen, waarbij ze een bestaande accomodatie hebben gekocht en omgebouwd tot een waar paradijs.

Zo is de slaapaccomodatie voorzien van alle luxe die je nodig hebt, zoals een goed bed, heerlijke douche en prima keuken. Pascal en Christa hebben ervoor gekozen de oude staat van het huis zo veel mogelijk in tact te houden hetgeen goed gelukt is. De tuin is erg groot en heeft verschillende lagen waar je kan zitten, tafeltenissen, zwemmen, etc

De locatie is uniek, zo ligt Casa Christa op korte afstand van Anteguerra en El Torcal en zijn er dagtripjes mogelijk naar Malaga, Granada, Cordoba en Ronda. Daarnaast staat het gebied goed bekend onder wandelaars en natuurliefhebbers.

Wij hebben erg genoten van onze vakantie en kunnen Casa Christa iedereen aanbevelen. Juist de veelzijdigheid van het gebied en de accomodatie maakt Casa Christa geschikt voor een brede doelgroep. Wij hopen er ooit zelf nog een keer terug te keren en zijn blij dat we Casa Christa hebben uitgekozen en Pascal en Christa hebben mogen ontmoeten.

Charmante location calme au coeur de l'Andalousie dans un magnifique jardin

  • 5 of 5

Lieu idéal pour se déstresser au contact de la nature, pour prendre le temps de vivre et de lâcher prise avec un quotidien trop banal.

L'appartement est bien aménagé et équipé, idéal pour deux personnes. De nombreuses terrasses ou coin "secret" permettent de profiter du magnifique jardin et de la piscine.

Le cadre naturel autour d'Alfarnatejo vaut vraiment le coup d’œil et peut être mieux apprécié encore par les nombreuses randonnées pédestres qui peuvent être faites.

Enfin ne pas oublier l'accueil chaleureux et attentionné de Pascal et Christa qui est la véritable valeur ajoutée de cette location.

Le cadre est superbe, nous avons passé un séjour exceptionnel à tout point de vue.

La villa est très agréable, le jardin est à couper le souffle et les hôtes sont des personnes très accueillantes, charmantes, qui ont le souci permanent du confort et du bien-être de ses occupants.

Nous reviendrons avec un très grand plaisir, un grand merci à Pascal et Christa.

Petite avre de paix entre mer et montagne.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé quinze jours formidable à la casa Elisa, tout est fait pour qu'on n'y soit bien on peut passé un moment de relaxation dans les différents coin du jardin très joliment arboré et fleurie où se trouve des hamacs.

Les moments de détente à la piscine sont également très agréable surtout quand les hirondelles viennent s'y rafraîchir.

La maison et très bien équipé il y a tous selon t'on à besoin.

Pascal et Crista sont d'une générosité et d'une discrétion sans égale.

Ils sont également de très bon conseil pour la visite de la région.Toujours attentif aux demande de leur hôte.

Nous conseillons cette location sans hésitation.
