The most relaxed place I could ever imagine

  • 5 of 5

We found this countryside guesthouse by chance over the internet, and we had no idea how lucky we were.

It is situated in the most beautiful surrounding, olive trees and pine trees, lots of birds and crystal clear water in the little stream.

The owners are there for helping you with whatever is needed, friendly but without being over the top. Ask them about any nice trip, and they'll come up with the best options.

The house in it self is an old mill from the 16th century, which gave our stay a very special feeling.

First we though we were a bit too far away from everything, after 24 hours we realized it was perfect. Close enough to Granada, Cordoba, Malaga for an easy day trip, as well as hundreds of romantic villages, it is actually really well placed.

I could go on, and on. We really loved it at Casa del Agua!!!

A Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last part of our Honeymoon this past May at the house in Aroyo de los Molinos and really fell in love with it! We wanted to find a more rural and natural setting to relax in, explore the area, rich in historical sites, as well as take a couple of day trips to Granada and Cordoba. We also wanted to find accomodations that although in a rural setting, still had some nice touches. And we really found it!! This home is a rural, traditional Spanish, country house that was so thoughtfully and tastefully done.We really could not believe how nicely designed and situated the house and property were.We were stunned we had found such a nice place (and not just "for the price") , but a truely, incredible place, a hidden gem! We stayed in the "Alhama Suite" which is the unit upstairs with exposed beams. Best to check their website as we did for more pictures. It was decorated with a moorish flair and very comfortable! It was beautifully arranged and extremely clean and fresh. Opening the wooden shutters each morning to a green meadow where you can hear water from the stream running nearby , we would sit outside below, at our private dining area sipping our morning coffee and gaze upon the gorgeous hillsides. We spent several evenings going into the town of Montefrio, about a 10 minute drive, which is situated on a hilltop and was one of the most beautiful and lively smaller towns we visited with a friendly and warm hearted community. We were assisted by Eva and Gerrardo to find our way on the first day who were the most delightful people we met on our whole trip! They had insights on anything from where to go, how to get there, and topics of interest to us personally; we really enjoyed getting to know them. They also gave us absolute privacy so we could take in the experience ourselves. Grilling at night after buying fresh meats and vegetables added to our relaxation as we felt right at home. But we also had tapas in the bars in Montefrio, that all shone a view of the basilico and castle that are not to be missed. The Alhambra in Granada also only took us 45 minutes to get there by car, where we could experience a larger city. However, each time we arrived "home", passing hillsides of red poppys, and the winding valley, our casita awaited us with a gorgeous night sky and a place of comfort. We have already had talks with friends to rent all four units the next time we are in Spain. It was a fabulous stay in a unique part of Granada Prov. Not to be missed!

2 semaines de pur bonheur en Andalousie

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes arrivés après 12 heures de route depuis Bordeauxet 10 minutes de chemin non pavé. La maison et la cascade sont conformes aux photos. Nous avons passé de très bons moments, la maison est parfaite pour se reposer et passer de bons moments conviviaux. Nous avons rencontré des familles très sympathiques et avons partagé de bons moments sur la terrasse autour d apéritifs, et de baignade a la cascade. Nous avons pu visiter Grenade, Malaga, Cordoue, Nerja ( pour la plage). Les enfants ont adoré se baigner a la cascade, ramasser des amandes, jouer avec poncho le chien, et surtout les soirées de jeux avec les copains et les copines. Merci à Eva et Gerardo et a tous les autres occupants de la casa del agua de la première quinzaine d août 2015 grâce à vous tous nous avons passé de super vacances . Marie Josée Xavier Aymeric et Aelys.

La Casa del Agua is een parel midden in de natuur

  • 5 of 5

Als je op zoek bent naar een unieke plek in een natuurlijke omgeving, waar je kan relaxen en kan genieten van stilte en schoonheid midden in de natuur, dan ben je hier op de juiste plek. Samen mijn zoon van 9 verbleef ik een week in dit fijne huis. De bewoners van dit huis zijn zeer gastvrij en behulpzaam. Zo werden wij warm onthaald in Montefrío, om vervolgens naar deze fantastische plek te worden gegidst.. Je hebt beslist een auto nodig.. en enige durf om de onverharde weg te rijden door de bergen,.. maar dat 1 maal gedaan,.. dan weet je dat t absoluut de moeite waard is .. en dat je blij bent dat je gekozen hebt voor deze parel op aarde. Het huis is koel, schoon, comfortabel en van alle gemakken voorzien. Heerlijk zelf kunnen koken. Naast het huis lekker liggen lezen op de ligbedden..We hebben genoten van het zwemwater vlakbij het huis,.. de waterval,.. schaduwrijk met bomen, gewandeld in de bergen... verrekijker mee voor de vogels. Vanuit deze plek kan je alle kanten op in Andalucië. Wij waren echter zo chill hier dat we er voor gekozen hebben daar juist van te genieten.. Eva en Gerardo, de bewoners van dit authentieke huis, zijn warme lieve behulpzame mensen. Ga naar deze plek ! je zal er geen spijt van krijgen... ik kan t iedereen aanbevelen..

Bonheur d'un séjour au calme

  • 5 of 5

Un accueil adorable, des hôtes discrets mais au petits soins en cas de besoin (Merci Eva et Gerardo entre autres pour les petits piments frais).

Situation calme et reposante, au fond d'une vallée étroite ce qui permet des températures un peu plus supportable que dans le reste de l'Andalousie.

Merci à nos hôtes pour le choix des autres locataires avec qui nous avons également passé de bonnes soirées.

Bémol sur la précision de la situation géographique, les chemins d'accès paraissant un peu rudes au départ, même si on finit par s'y habituer (il faut compté une dizaine de minutes pour accéder à une route carrosable).

Un merci à Pancho (un adorable Saint Bernard) pour sa présence amicale et tout aussi discrète que ses maîtres.

Enfin bref, merci pour ce séjour très agréable.
