This review is about Casa Alfarera which is a privately owned property (not owned by the Finca's owners, Pippa & Manfred, who oversee it for the English owner). The location of the Casa is superb. It is set in an olive grove with wonderful views. The setting is very private ....stunning sunsets! We had our two dogs with us and... More

If you are happy with four large (barking guard) dogs loose on the premises, then this is ideal for you. If you paid and booked full board and found only an evening meal offered, then again a perfect choice. Should you take any concerns to the agent, in this case Responsible Travel, and can accept a torrent of denials and... More

The couple who wrote this review were staying for a walking week 2 years ago so I don't know why they have chosen to submit the review now. Sadly they were severely physically challenged for a walking holiday in the sierra, their condition was very poor and they felt very uncomfortable because of this. But more seriously one of them...

Spent a week in this traditional Finca during the heat of August. The rooms, especially the upstairs bedroom do get quite warm, but then it is Spain in the summer, so what does one expect? The Finca has a (not-too) rustic character, with a roomy well-equipped kitchen and a quiet high-ceiling living space. Two of the bedrooms are downstairs and... More

Myself and my wife stayed here for 10 nights in September with friends and totally loved it. We rented the Cortijo and found it to be incredibly comfortable, well-equipped, beautifully maintained and roomy. The house is much bigger than expected and easily accommodated six of us. We made full use of the front and side terraces and the outdoor table... More

We absolutely adored our stay here. It is very hot in July and there are mosquitos, but that was to be expected. The terrace at the back has a barbeque and we spent lovely summer meals outside. Pippa and Manfred were very helpful.

We visited in mid May and were astonished at the incredible wild flowers everywhere (as well as being grateful that we'd checked the weather forecasts and had brought warm clothes for chilly evenings). The days that were sunny gave us a glimpse of how special a holiday in this cortijo could be. Swimming pool tucked beneath the mountains, fabulous birds... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

We booked the Barn because of the beautiful surroundings and stunning birdlife. And that is absolutely what we found. But, the house itself was poorly cleaned and we got the impression that it is kind of neglected. Also, we didn't feel welcomed by the owners and communication was poorly and distant. We mentioned a leaking sink on our first day,... More

Have only just noticed this review, This review is NOT about our barn at Finca al-manzil. This client stayed for some days at the barn but she wanted to stay longer, the barn was booked up for the extra days she wanted so we kindly accommodated her in another house which we manage, she was happy to move there to...

Okay so my timing was terrible, forgot how hot Spain could be in August. But annual vacation dates forced choice. The temperature was around 33 degrees and bearable. Fabulous location, isolated and surrounded by accessible walks. This Finca is the place to escape to, switch off and relax. Beautifully designed with all possible facilities at hand. Highly recommend.

If you don't want to do much on holiday and like it hot, this could be your ideal destination. It does get hot and the barn has no air-conditioning but then this is Spain! and we don't come here in the height of summer unless we are thick-skinned or just thick. When you can get on your feet and go... More

A wonderful farm property near Montanchez Spain. The Finca offers complete rest and relaxation for travelers not interested in routine run of the mill vacation hotels. It is in the wonderful countryside of fig trees and acorns as well as cork trees. From the Finca it is less than a hours drive to wonderful old Spanish cities such as Cacares,... More
