Miguel and Maricarmen were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We had fresh eggs everyday from the chickens and could even help ourselves to the fresh figs grown on the property. Couldn't have wished for more! Thank you for an amazing holiday. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone thinking of staying here!!

Yes, you do need a car to make the most of the area but El Rancho is well placed to explore the fabulous Andalusian region. Although if you just want a relaxing time lounging by the pool and soaking in the hot tub then you can. Enjoyed a riding lesson on the lovely grey Havana, leaving Jeremy to enjoy the pool area - win/win. However, what made this holiday special is Jacqui and Garret themselves, nothing was too much trouble, always helpful, definitely over and above what you expect. It was like we became part of their extended family such a bonus and privilege, looking forward to returning - our first visit will not be our last.

Everything was extremely clean and fully equipped with everything guests can need, including wifi internet, a sizeable television and even a stereo system by the pool and barbecue area. The villa has been lovingly and carefully maintained by the owners, Juan and Mari, who live nearby and expertly manage the balance between being available if needed and respecting the privacy of guests. The location was ideal for our purposes, affording enough remoteness to provide peace and quiet when we wanted it, while being a short drive from lovely rural outings, quaint typical ‘real Spain’ villages and yet only a 25 minute drive from the coastal beaches and night life of the Costa del Sol, including Malaga, Torremolinos, Fuengirola and Marbella, all of which we easily drove to while staying at the villa. For a convenient nearby restaurant, I recommend ‘Venta La Porrita’ (only a 5 minute drive) where you can enjoy either a full range of typical Spanish tapas or a relatively good range of complete meal choices on the menu. Only a 15 minute drive away is the town of Alhaurin el Grande with an extensive choice of Spanish restaurants as well as Italian, Chinese etc. The equally nearby town of Alhaurin de la Torre provided a well stocked ‘LIDL’ supermarket (10 minute drive) for the many days where we chose to stay in and enjoy the luxury of the villa, the outside barbecue, pool and hot-tub. Whether looking for a romantic getaway or a good base from which to explore and enjoy outdoor activities (birding, hiking, walking etc), I would not hesitate to recommend this villa. Juan and Mari, thank you for all your personal attention and assistance. You have a lovely villa and we all enjoyed our stay. You are a charming couple and your assistance and friendly personality made all the difference. I hope to return and am sure that others from our group are likely to do so also! I look forward to seeing you again in the future! Francis
