Roger Bushnell purchased this apartment in 2001
Away from the coast with a relaxing life style, yet offering good access to the delights of Granada, Malaga, Cordoba and all that these cities have to offer, with the town of Antequera some 30 minutes away with El Torcal and the Dolmens
Friendly locals this is the real Spain where just about everybody has time to pass the time of day, away from the motorways, although each motorway is only 20km. distant. No pollution and no industry just a tranquil way of life set amidst the olive groves. A visit to the olive factory may be booked from October to March, a translator will be extra, an interesting visit to show just how detailed the production and care of Olive Oil is. An area with no pollution from cars or factories with big sky and great stars
Dear Elisabeth, Roger and Tapley,
>> As we left early this morning we didn't have a chance to say personally a very big THANK YOU for your wonderful hospitality during our stay at the Casita. We had a great time and enjoyed La Parrilla and its surroundings. We will remember fondly our stay and Mario especially the excellent whiskey tasting. We definitely will recommend your place.
>> All the best to you and who knows maybe we one day will book into your B&B in Sweden.
>> Kind regards Carmen & Mario
After visiting the property for a much needed break away from from it all we were thrilled with our choice, set in the village of la parrilla amidst olive groves with a great terrace for catching the rays the property is inland however there's a stunning lake a short drive away where you can have a meal and take in the stunning views.
Roger and Elizabeth were unobtrusive, charming hosts who were on hand to offer anything we required, we travelled with out 11 year old daughter who loved the pool, we were lucky enough to have sole use for the duration of our stay and were there Til late every evening.
Roger was very helpful and provided us with directions from the airport, we hired a car and Roger gave us information about the supermarket along the way where we picked up groceries.
on arrival we were thrilled to have been provided with provisions to make a drink and a sandwich!!! lovely touch Roger and Elizabeth
I would recommend this property to anyone who's looking to see the real spain and get away from it all!!!!!
thanks again Roger and Elizabeth and we will see you again soon

"First class all around (service, appartment, location, etc). "
"Very nice place, perfect for discovering the rural Andalusian life (it's wonderful to wake up surrounded by birds singing) and also all the classical turistic spots in the area (Seville, Cordoba, Granada). Roger and Elisabeth gave us a warm welcome and helped us with everything we needed."
un temps superbe , le calme de la campagne, des hôtes très discrets ; nous avons passé une semaine superbe.
Ma famille et moi même avons passé trois merveilleuses semaines en Andalousie et avons été extraordinairement bien accueilli par les propriétaires de la location que nous remercions encore à travers notre message. Tout est réuni pour rendre le séjour des locataires exceptionnel !!! La location est très bien située et nous avons pu sans problèmes visiter les villes de Cordoue, Grenade, Malaga, Ronda et Séville. Rien ne manque dans la location et je tiens à souligner l'extrême gentillesse des propriétaires et la propreté des lieux. En résumé, je recommande vivement cette location qui permet à la fois en alternance visites culturelles pour pouvoir connaître l'Andalousie avec beaucoup de facilité et aussi repos et jeux au bord de la piscine dont la vue sur les oliviers est magnifique !!!
