Fabulous farmhouse, traditional Spain

5 of 5
If you want to escape the tourist trap of the coastal regions and explore a little more of inland Spain then this is the perfect spot for you. Nestled within a national park, surrounded by olive trees with mountain backdrop its very easy on the eye.The farmhouse itself has everything to make your stay comfortable, clean and well equipped, lovely outdoor space to create the perfect alfresco experience. The pool is lockable which prevents little ones gaining access without a grown up, the pool is brine and cool, lovely on those hot summer days. We loved the wood oven and cooked many a meal there which was a real treat. The bedrooms have comfortable mattress' and are beautifully presented. the house has full air conditioning, and although in height of summer temps reach a whopping 38 degrees, because the humidity is that much lower than UK it is very tolerable. We found some lovely little restaurants, check out Rafi Meson (Algar) just delightful and very traditional (roast baby goat, wild boar stew). Our hosts were so genuine, we were welcomed like family, but not over intrusive. We were left a jug of local wine frequently as the spirited through the gardens early mornings to refresh the pool and tend the donkeys. My girls loved the donkeys, basket ball, ping pong table, so many things to keep little people and grown ups entertained. A relaxing, perfect holiday, enjoyed by all. Thank you Casti. x

This is a hidden gem

5 of 5
We stayed here last week for the week. The views are amazing, and we were very lucky to have good weather, especially in March, so sat outside taking in the fantastic view over the lake. Our host was very friendly and immensely helpful without being intrusive. I am always a bit apprehensive when arriving at a holiday apartment hoping that they are as good as the photo's. We needn't have worried, they are furnished to a high standard and everything you need is at hand. There are night lights in the bathrooms, which I thought were a great idea. The owner does have dogs, I am not a great dog lover but have to admit the dogs were friendly and were not noisy . There area between our apartment and the owners is fenced off and the pool can be reached through a gate. We were not brave enough to swim in the pool as it was a bit cold! I'm sure it is lovely in the warmer months. The nearby village of Rute is charming with some nice places to eat. Lucena and Antiquera are lovely towns within a 30min drive. I especially liked the market at Antiquera which Murri our host told us about. The Alhambra is about 1 hour away but well worth the visit. Overall I would say this is a fantastic place to stay away from the tourist track. We will definitely be considering staying here again. Thank you for being such a great host Murri, your knowledge of the area was amazing.
