About Nicky Lawrence

Having moved to Spain with my husband Rupert in 2008, we enjoy living in the peaceful little village of El Ferrer, escaping the hurried life style of England now we can spend our time at the coast on relaxed beaches, only a short drive away. Or perhaps visting Malaga, the Alpujarron villages, the famous City of Granada, not to mention a little skiing in the Sierra Nevada Resort, what more could we ask for. So come and join us,

Nicky Lawrence purchased this house in 2010

Why Nicky Lawrence chose Rubite

For the peace and quite, but not to far to travel to the coast or surrounding countryside

What makes this house unique

The village is approx 7.5 kms (10/15 minutes) from the coastal town of Castell de Ferro, with its beaches, bars, restaurants and shops. Within easy drive to the numerous beaches along the coast and historical sites within the area. The combination of peace and quiet in the mountains and the close proximity to the coast make it a great place for those wanting to get away from it all.

Fantastisch plekje in de bergen in authentiek vakantiehuis

  • 5 of 5

Vorig jaar zomer boekten wij dit idylische vakantiehuis met fantastisch uitzicht op de beregn en vallei. Een ruim opgezet vakantiehuis in authentieke stijl.

Het weggetje naar het huisje was erg stijl en zonder hulp moeilijk te vinden. Vandaar dat devriendelijke eigenaars ons opwachten bij het benzine station onderaan de weg en ons voor reden naar het vakantie huis. Eenmaal bij het goed ingerichte vakantie huis was de koelkast gevuld om een eerste dag door te komen zonder boodchappen te hoeven doen. Je hebt wel een auto nodig maar strand is op 10 min. rijden.

Het gedeelte van spanje waar het huis zich bevindt is nog niet overspoeld door toerisme waardoor zelfs het strand heerlijk rustig was. En in de omgeving nog authentieke tapa's gratis bij je drankje geserveerd worden.

Enige minpunt van de locatie midden zomer waren de vele vliegen in dit gedeelte van spanje. Tip: Door zwenk ventilators op het terras te zetten kun je ze verdrijven.

Awesome scenery, a house that caters for your every want and need, and impeccable hosting

  • 5 of 5

A six week stay that went so fast. The property catered for our every want and need.

Our two dogs loved the breathtaking surrounding hills and all the walks that came with the property.

The local beach and nearest town with shops and amenities are a ten to fifteen minute drive away and were more than adequate for our wants and needs.

The main mediterrean motorway that can take you from Almeria in the East to Malaga,Marbella and Gibralter in the West and up to the Sierra Nevada and Granada to the North, is a ten minute drive from the property, if exploring the diverse region of Andalucia is on your "to do list".

Our hosts and owners, Nicky and Rupert, (and their two dogs, May and Monty),are genuinely lovely, and available should you need to ask any questions or advice, without invading any privacy.

The property description was extremely accurate

We have never recommended a property as highly as Cortijo Paco, in over thirty years of travelling all over the world.

We would return without any hesitation.

great place

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time in Nicky and Rupert's house. The house was clean, so well decorated, peaceful atmosphere. Nicky an Rupert were so nice with us. We had everything we needed in the house even a full fridge! We felt even better than at home. It is the perfect place for a quiet, relaxing holiday. Our kids were delighted with the surroundings of the house, they could play ine the village, building sheds.... and they also loved the legos for them in the house, the beach games ...... A huge thank to Nicky and Rupert!

Breathtaking location exceptionally well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could possibly need was provided,including ample provisions to start your holiday. We loved our stay and would thoroughly recommend it. As arranged we were met by the owner and followed her up to the village The rough track makes a bumpy ride but that all adds to the pleasure of this holiday retreat. Thank you too for welcoming our pets. Such an idyllic location.

Idyllic, a hidden gem, perfect holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were captivated. The cottage is in an amazing location - hidden away up a valley, up a rather steep windy road which you get used to very quickly. It is beautifully furnished with everything you could want and more for a very comfortable stay. Our three children (aged 5,10 and 12) settled in immediately and loved playing with the toys, hopping in the jacuzzi ( a nice cool down on a hot day) and relaxing. The beach is just a short drive away, and the house is very handy for exploring the region including a trip to Granada.

Nicky and Rupert came to meet us to show us the way and made us so welcome. There were cold drinks and food supplies in the fridge too which were most appreciated.

The property was spotless, perfect, so well set up with plenty of space for everyone and even better than the photos had suggested. We would love to return one day for a longer stay. We recommend this as a wonderful place to come and stay. It is a highlight of our trip so far.

Nur Vogelgezwitscher

  • 5 of 5

Eine herrliche, sonnige und entschleunigte Zeit in El Ferrer konnten wir in dem äußerst komfortablen und gemütlichen Haus unserer Gastgeber verbringen.

Abgelegen, nur über eine abenteuerliche Fahrt zu erreichen, liegt das Minidörfchen. Von 2 Terrassen hatten wir einen traumhaften Blick in das weite Tal. Natur pur den ganzen Tag!

Das liebevoll ausgestattete alte Bauernhaus lässt nichts zu wünschen übrig. Selbst Bademäntel und Sonnenhüte stehen zur Verfügung!

Die Abgeschiedenheit und Stille bedeuten allerdings auch, dass Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Gastronomie und das Meer erst nach 15-minütiger Autofahrt, in Castell de Ferro, zu erreichen sind.

Wanderungen und Kulturausflüge, Meer und Strand, Ausruhen und Andalusien genießen - was möchte man mehr!
