A wonderful stay
La casa es extraordinaria por su amplitud y bien gusto en la decoración práctica, luminosa y la anfitriona sybille siempre está disponible para cualquier imprevisto. Esta algo alejada de orgiva, lo que hace imprescindible el recomendable llevar coche , hay 1km 500 se puede ir andando pero se tarda 25 min ahora si a través un camino encantador de olivos milenarios .
Recomiendo este sitio idílico. Ideal para vacaciones de relax y en familia .
A beautiful property in an idyllic setting
The house is beautiful with every comfort and much bigger than it appears in the pictures. The furnishings and decor are to a high standard and are both individual and tasteful.
The house has spectacular views across to the mountains and the terrace adjoining the master bedroom has a large table where you can comfortably sit 6-8 and watch the changing landscape. We loved seeing and hearing the goatherd pass by every evening from this spot.
The owner Sybille was easy to contact and nothing was too much trouble for her.
A versatile and beautiful house in an idyllic setting with a helpful and friendly owner- I hope we can return soon!
