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.

Si vous souhaitez passer des vacances reposantes, ne cherchez pas plus loin, vous avez trouvé le lieu idéal.

Casa Christa est un havre de Paix dans un jardin merveilleux, aux multiples couleurs et senteurs très agréables. L'accueil chaleureux de Christa & Pascal fait que l'on s'y sent bien de suite.

La Casita Elisa, bien équipée, est d'un tel calme et d'une telle fraicheur qu'elle permet de passer de bonnes nuits après les chaudes journées Andalouses.

Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de nos vacances 2017.

Merci Christa & Pascal de nous avoir fait profiter de votre splendide demeure, ainsi que de vos sourires et de votre gentillesse. Les moments passés ici étaient délicieux.


Catherine et Jean Michel.

Un endroit magnifique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné une semaine chez Christa et Pascal, une semaine de pur bonheur alternant les visites, la farniente dans leur beau jardin ou autour de la piscine. Les hôtes sont charmants et attentionnés. La maison est très agréable avec tout le nécessaire (literie très confortable). Un endroit pour se relaxer, rêver, flaner ........ au chant des oiseaux et des clochettes des chèvres.

Une parenthèse dans notre monde trépidant

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons vécu un séjour exceptionnel ! Ce lieu est un véritable oasis de fraîcheur, de beauté, de poésie, où le calme et les chants d'oiseaux accompagnent nos siestes et nos repas. La beauté des paysages alentours est grandiose.

Pascal et Christa qui ont conçu ce lieu sont à l'image de celui ci : charmants, délicats, attentifs, chaleureux et particulièrement ouverts à la rencontre et au partage.

Nous avons découvert Antequera, Cordoue, Grenade, Malaga, etc...

Ce petit paradis permet de se reposer des visites et de savourer le calme et la fraîcheur de la piscine après le bruit et la chaleur des villes.

Pour les amateurs de randonnées en montagne tout est possible.

C'est le meilleur lieu de vacances depuis que nous voyageons, il est vraiment UNIQUE non seulement par la qualité de l'environnement mais aussi grâce à Christa et Pascal qui sont si attachants.
