Another great week in this lovely farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We returned for a second visit to this villa after staying in nearby Casares for our first week and loved it just as much as the first time. The views from the terrace and the lovely terrace itself are probably highlights for us as well as the pool, the local village and just the ease of access to everything. We flew into Gibraltar which makes the transfer so easy. Highly recommended.

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect villa and area for a family holiday. We spent time at the spacious villa, in the excellent pool and also enjoyed using the pool table when it was too hot. There were many areas to relax in and it was lovely having all meals outside overlooking the polo grounds. The house is as described and looks even better when you arrive. Jon was always available and took time to check the pool for us. We had nothing to worry about and felt very safe. It is a great place to relax but there are also many places to visit quite close - all details are provided in the villa. Gibraltar was a super day out and well worth a visit. We all had a wonderful holiday.

We had the most amazing and relaxing holiday ever! Although we have been numerous times to the cost del sol we had never known how beautiful and peaceful it could be. As we drove off the main roads towards the hills we became nervous- where would we end up, but then our final destination and we looked around and nothing prepares you for the beauty of the views and the serenity. The house does not disappoint it is spacious and has plenty of windows and doors to give access to all the views in different directions and lots of light. It is authentically built to look rustic with ceiling beams and dark marble floor tiles.

The owner, John was so nice, friendly and helpful with any matter however small he went over the top to sort it out quickly.

The pool was amazing and there was plenty of shade too when it got too hot by the pool.


Thanks John

We loved this gorgeous Andalucian farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 11 days in this gorgeous farmhouse and couldn't recommend it highly enough. This is probably the 7th or 8th Andalucian country villa we have stayed in over the last ten years (love this part of the world!) but definitely our favourite so far. The farmhouse is even more lovely than it looks - loads of space and comfort, very clean and in an amazing location.

Highlights for us (a family of five with children aged 12, 17 and 18) included the beautiful terrace with stunning views - a great place for meals and drinks -the pool and (for the teenagers) the pool table and comfy sofa! .

I also loved watching the polo in the neighbouring fields - loved the sound of the horses running around and the clunk of the polo ball. The local village is fab - a great place to sit and eat tapas and watch the world go by - and its also only a few minutes to the beach. John was a great host and we honestly couldn't have asked for more. Hopefully we will be back - missing it already!

Splendid solitary country house

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of four, stayed in this outstanding country house for ten days and enjoyed it very much. The house itself is really spacious, nicely furnished (piano!) and has a fully equipped kitchen. We loved having breakfast as well as dinner and barbecue on the large, shaded porch overlooking the beautiful garden and the nearby area. Our kids (11 & 13) enjoyed the large swimming pool and the pool table most. John, the landlord, was always very polite, helpful and straigthforward.

We definitely recommend this house for anybody who likes to have a temporary, pretty luxurious home in a rural area yet still close to the beaches of the Mediterranean (10 to 15 minutes drive) and many South Andalusian places worth visiting (such as Tarifa (whale watching), Gibraltar, Jimena). Having a car is certainly recommended.

Thank you very much, John.
