5 retired couples stayed four nights at this lovely villa. It exceeded our expectations. The house is large and comfortably accommodates 10 people with plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was wonderful and had everything we needed to make a few meals. The yard and views from the house were incredible. It is a short drive to the village ( and a couple of the group actually walked back to the villa from town 2km ). The grocery store in the village had everything we needed at bargain prices. Colin responded to several small issues we had immediately and Maria and Josef are the local contacts who took care of any problems and answered our questions. I cannot say enough about the wonderful suggestions we received from Colin and Francesca. The directions to the house, information on local fiesta, were all very much appreciated. Our only disappointment was the weather. Spain was experiencing unusual rain most of the 10 days we were there. We would have liked to have been out in the yard sitting by the the lovely pool every day. I guess we will just have to come back ! We would also suggest having Maria bring paella for dinner one night. We ordered enough for 10 and got enough for 20! There was plenty for dinner and lunch and it was delicious. I would highly recommend this property.
Dear Mary Lou, Curtis and your group of friends,
It was lovely for us to host your visit all the way from Montana, USA and we are just sorry the weather didn't match your enthusiasm.
February weather can be fickle and I remember getting sunburn one year and taking pictures of the snow (highly unusual) another year.
You will all be so welcome to come again and we look forward to it !
Many, many thanks for your very kind 5* review and we will let Marie know you enjoyed her paella.
Our very best regards,
Colin and Francesca.
A fantastic place
We stayed in the house with the whole family with children from 10 to our grandmother 80 years old. It really is a beautifull house. Colin was very attentively, he helped us with information for our daytrips. The house is clean, big, cosy and has a perfect garden with swimmingpool. Hope to come back some day, thank you for you hospitallity!!
Summer August 2017
We had a fabulous 2 weeks in Loma La Parra in Spain. The property was spacious and very well maintained. The bedrooms were comfortable and had all the furniture we needed and the ensure bathrooms/shower rooms were very clean. The patio area and kitchen were well equipped and were the central meeting spaces for our large family to relax in with ample shaded areas for the times we needed to be out of the sun. The pool area was exceptionally lovely and the children (young and old) enjoyed playing in it. The sunbeds were very comfortable and there were enough for our party.
If I had to complain about anything it would be the wasps and flies who seemed to love spending the evening with us!
Overall a very enjoyable holiday
Dear Kim and family,
Many thanks for your review. Once again Loma la Parra appears to have worked well across 3 generations.
Understandably in a hot country there will sometimes be flies or wasps but usually these come and go with the wind and temperature. We also spray for nests and place traps during the summer months to minimise insect nuisance.
Best regards, Colin and Francesca.
Fabulous, relaxing week with the family (all adults) in a beautiful villa, located in the perfect spot for exploring the area. The villa and it's facilities were perfect, the pool and garden were spotless, and cleaned several times during the week, and the surrounding area and views were spectacular. Amazing walk along the Caminito del Rey (a must see), which is only 30 mins drive away, and lovely days in Ronda (about 1.5 hours), and Antequera (30 mins). The owners were very communicative, both before, and during, our stay, and went to a lot of trouble to make sure everything was perfect. We had an amazing Paella delivered one evening, by Mari & Jose, relatives of the owners, and all the other evenings we took advantage of the BBQ at one side of the garden, then had really relaxing evenings on the patio, with plenty of local wine! The local town is only 5 mins drive away, with all the little local shops and supermarkets that you need, plus several lovely little tapas bars, that were a welcome distraction after doing a bit of shopping! Sadly, we can't comment on any of the local restaurants, as the villa and surroundings were so perfect that we ended up staying in every evening! We would have loved to be staying for a second week, and can't recommend this villa/location highly enough. Many, many thanks to Colin and Francesca for making our stay so perfect!
Dear Trevor and all the family,
You are a seasoned traveller in Andalucia and you mentioned your specific requirements in your initial enquiry so we are especially pleased that Loma la Parra worked so well for you all.
It was a joy to correspond with you and our pleasure to help where possible.
Many, many thanks for your visit and for the 5* rating which is really appreciated by all the team.
Our very best regards,
Colin and Francesca.
A wonderful place to stay with perfect hosts
The house was perfect for a family travelling with 4 teenagers, a younger child in a wheelchair and a granny - so a mixed bunch whose needs were met in every way. We could have just spent the whole time next to the pool and in the surrounding area... the local town was welcoming with a few little local shops with families of all ages; we also explored the local lakes, which were beautiful and did horse riding in the evening which was loved by all, even my disabled son (but not granny)... a wonderful place with very approachable hosts always keen to help.
Thank you so much for your two weeks stay at Loma la Parra with your family.
It has been a particularly hot summer and you still managed to get out and about around the glorious lakes and even horse riding a couple of times.
We were pleased to organise a paella for you, delivered to the villa and we can't thank you enough for awarding us 5 stars.
Colin and Francesca.
Fantastic holiday home
This is a beautiful villa standing alone in amazing countryside. We were a group of 10 and didn't venture very far away from Loma La Para as it was everything we wanted. We all work very hard, some of us just out of A levels / degree exams and lazy days around the pool was just what we all needed. The villa had everything we required, from comfortable sun loungers, great pool, space,(inside and out) views, bbq, dishwasher, towels etc. Colin was very helpful before our stay and during via whatsapp. We also ordered the paella one night delivered to our door, hot and delicious. This is one place we would definitely return!!
Thank you so much for your stay at Loma la Parra and your very kind words.
You will of course always be welcome to come again.
