Lovely clean apartment with the added bonus of the roof top terrace, with stunning views of the mountains and village. Very quite at night and during the day apart from the early morning noise from the local cockrels singing away. Simon was very accommodating as we had an early morning flight into Malaga and let us access the property earlier than stated as he had no one leaving on that morning. Although, no one was there to meet us, access was easy as the keys are in a lock safe and the code was sent prior to our arrival.
We visited a few local bars during our four night stay but our favourite by far, was the little bar as you come into Riogordo, just before the bridge near the mini supermarket "La Tienda Del Puente" which was reccomended to us by a local ex pat living there. Great tasty tapas!
We enjoyed the local market day although, we found it difficult to find. But, after asking some friendly locals " Por favour mercado local" (please local market) we were soon pointed in the right direction.
If you get the opportunity take the scenic drive up to the picturesque town of Comares. The drive up is windy and steep but once you get there the views are outstanding. It was a lovely morning walking around the streets following the moorish ceramic footprints around the town. It has a quaint little square where you can sit and have a drink and just relax, whilst admiring the views.
4 of us stayed here for 10 days in july 2018, no problems. nice place, clean, lovely roof terrace.great location. would use again.
Zalig niet-toeristisch dorpje
Het dorp was vrij klein maar met voldoende lokale winkeltjes voor je boodschappen, en voldoende cafe's. Het appartement is perfect voor de lente of herfst. Het zonneterras is volgens mij te warm in de zomer, en het appartement zelf was aan de koude kant in de winter. Wel voorzien van alles wat je nodig hebt, goede bedden en een zeer vriendelijke, behulpzame eigenaar. En het voornaamste: het is een prachtige streek. We gaan het hier zeker verder verkennen!
Stay with a touch!
Lovely apartment, well situated in the heart of Riogordo, spotlessly clean and decorated with taste. The roof terrace is a definite bonus although in July/August its use was limited to breakfast because of the heat. A nice touch with the plants and some supplies in the kitchen. Dealings with the owner friendly and efficient. Would I recommend it? Absolutely!
Gepflegte Wohnung mit wünderschöner Dachterasse
Schöne kleine Wohnung, liebevoll eingerichtet in sehr gutem Zustand. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht, die Kommunikation mit dem Eigentümer klappte hervorragend. Aus unserer Sicht das Beste: Die große Dachterasse mit wunderschönem Blick. Der Ort ist klein und eher ruhig; es gibt aber ausreichend Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und auch einige Tapas-Bars und Restaurants. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt!
Wir haben tolle Tage in dem schicken Appartment verbracht. Die Terrasse hat einen wunderschönen Ausblick auf das Dorf und die umliegenden Berge. Auch die Wohnung war ganz nach unserem Geschmack.
All beds in the apartment are made, but we ask you to choose the bed you wish to use, and not to sleep in all beds. We give a reduced rate for couples but do not wish to wash all bed linen. Thanks for your co-operation.
