Anadalusischer Traum

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus hat in jeder Beziehung unsere Erwartungen übertroffen. Die Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und ansprechend. Alles ist sehr gut ausgestattet: Betten, Bad, Küche ... überzeugen. Aber natürlich ist alles auf Terrasse und Pool hin ausgerichtet, die uns viel Freude gemacht haben. Aber das Beste ist die Aussicht: Berge und Meer. Mehr kann man wirklich nirgends finden. Esther und Jesus haben jeden Wunsch erfüllt.

Das einzige, was man vorher wissen muss: der Weg ist keine Bundesstraße. Zwar (außer 200 m) alles Teer oder Beton, aber ganz schön steil. Aber nach ein paar mal üben macht auch das Spaß.

Eigentlich schreibe ich ja keine Bewertungen, aber dieses Haus ist wirklich eine ideale Urlaubsadresse!

Zeer compleet ingericht en rustig gelegen.

  • 5 of 5

We werden opgehaald in het dorp en reden achter de eigenaar/beheerder aan naar het huis. Een rit van 15 minuten over verharde, steile en smalle weggetjes. Het huis ligt erg vrij en is van alle gemakken voorzien. Het zwembad was vanwege de tijd van het jaar nog te koud. Veel vogels in de omgeving en mooi uitzicht op de tegenoverliggende heuvels. Bij goed weer zicht tot aan de zee en Nerja. Steeds goede communicatie gehad met de eigenaar/ beheerders. Voor boodschappen moet je 15 km terug naar het dorp of 30 minuten verder rijden naar Nerja. Auto is noodzakelijk. Voor wandelaars genoeg mogelijkheden in de buurt. Samenvattend; prima bevallen.

Das Cortijo Retama ist ein wunderschönes Ferienhaus, eingebettet in ein ebenso schönes begrüntes Anwesen. Haus und Anwesen sind authentisch und sehr liebevoll gestaltet, ohne dabei aufdringlich zu wirken. Das Cortijo Retama ist sehr gepflegt und liegt wohltuend ruhig am Ende eines fast durchgehend befestigten, nicht zu langen Fahrweges.

Auch wenn sich dies alles wie die vollmundige Beschreibung in einem Ferienprospekt liest, ist es dennoch wahrhaftig so.

Und was wahrscheinlich so nicht in einem Prospekt stehen würde:

Die Vermieter des Ferienhauses – Esther und Jesus – waren uns äußerst zuvorkommende und liebenswerte Gastgeber. Sie ließen es sich zum Beispiel nicht nehmen, den Kühlschrank bei unserer Ankunft mit frischen Lebensmitteln zu befüllen oder uns vorausschauend ausreichend Feuerholz für ein paar wenige kältere Nächte (im November) diskret bereitzustellen.

Beste Voraussetzungen für einen fabelhaften Urlaubsgenuss - und wir haben unseren Urlaub genossen - fabelhaft!

Ein dickes Dankeschön an Esther und Jesus sagen

Anja, Charlotte, Heiko und Thomas

Paradis andalou

  • 5 of 5

Depayssement total , petite route bétonnée, sinueuse et abrupte dans les hauteurs de FRIGILIANA pour arriver au cortijo RETAMA . Cet endroit est unique , il domine la baie de NERJA et se marie entre les oliviers et les avocatiers sous les chants des cigales . le cortijo est magnifique autant dans sa dispôsition que dans sa decoration, rien ne manque . Esther et JESUS d'une grande discretion , tres attentionné et reagissent à toute demande . Merci encore pour ce sejour de reves dans cet endroit paradisiaque nous l'avons quitté à contre coeur mais nous nous sommes promis de revenir . Hasta luego , TITOUAN , ELLEN et JOEL .

Vacances Andalouses

Même si l'accès à la maison est un peu chaotique, la recompense est au bout du chemin !! Une merveilleuse maisonnette typique, confortable, jolie, fonctionnelle et très propre, en pleine nature, entourée d'oliviers, d'avocatiers et de fleurs. Le calme et la tranquillité, dans ce magnifique pays, par ailleurs très animé. Que du bonheur !

En plus, Jesus et Esther sont des hôtes disponibles et très sympathiques. Un grand merci de nous avoir si bien reçus.
