“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Had a fantastic holiday in Casa Ribeyro. The views from the apartment across the lake and the mountains are superb. Alex and Charles were very helpful and friendly. The fridge was well stocked with all the essentials for your immediate needs and more. Lovely area for exploring. Would definitely recommend this property, it was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need.
Thank you Alex and Charles for your hospitality, we hope to return one day.

“An amazing place to recharge the batteries which is a great example of unspoilt Spain.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We had an amazing Holiday at this apartment. Alex and Charles are incredibly friendly and helpful but also provide that balance of allowing your own space. The view from the apartment is breath taking and there is something new to see whenever you look at it we found just staring at this magical landscape very relaxing. The local restaurants are very reasonable and provide great local food. It feels like a Holiday in the real Spain and I would recommend it to anyone. "What is life if full of care we have no time to stop and stare." Is a poem worth reading if you want to get a sense of this place.

“Views to Die For !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

For those of you thinking about booking Casa Ribeyro - just book it, you will not regret it! We have found a gem and we wish we could keep it a secret. It was a short drive to the Finca and it was dark. We met our hosts Alex and Charles at the bar a short distance from the accommodation - it gave us a chance to meet them properly and enjoy a much appreciated beer. Alex and Charles are very friendly and helpful people and looked after us throughout our stay being on hand when we needed and respecting our privacy too. We followed Charles to our place of stay and when we arrived at Casa Ribeyro we were delighted as the photos do not do this Finca justice so please note! The accommodation is spacious, clean and has everything you could possible need - and if it hasn't all you need to do is ask Alex and she is there for you. The annex is under Alex and Charles' home as part of an old Finca which has been done up very 'rustic' and tasteful with furniture which is in keeping with an old Spanish home. It had the feel of a cave with whitewashed walls and clever lighting so as not to be too dark, although this will work very well at the height of the summer with the shutters for a cool feel. It has a roomy entrance, large kitchen and living area and a comfortable bedroom. The shower room is large too. When we woke in the morning and looked out of the window - WOW!! Views to die for! We had sole use of the large pool and there were many terrace areas to sit in sun and shade with a book under the olive tree or just enjoy your lunch on your own patio with 360 degree views of the majestic Mount Maroma and the serenity of Lake Vinuela - again WOW! Los Romanos is a walk away - there is a good stocked shop with a butchery, meat for your BBQ's and wonderful bread and any other shopping you may need! If you need a hypermarket it is a short drive of 10kms. Close to the village shop is a bar Pepe's where you can stop off for a beer or 2, Pepe's has a balcony where you can enjoy views of the lake where I witnessed a double rainbow! If you fancy eating out there is 3 excellent restaurants - we tried 2 of them. El Charco - we had every Tapas they had which gave us a feeling of Spanish eating and was very good. They also do good coffee and views from the patio. The other restaurant we tried was a grill - closer to the Lake, you could walk from the Finca - downhill. Also very good - especially the grilled rabbit! This restaurant had wonderful decking with tables overlooking the lake!
To summarise this wonderful holiday we had, Alex and Charles have it right in every way, for their accommodation, area, hospitality and even give you a free welcome pack. Forgot to mention Charles has a hot tub where you can enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sun go down. Alex and Charles we are thinking about booking next years flights for our second visit....thanks again!

“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The missus and I wanted a chilled out week of not doing an awful lot in the sunshine, having had an excellent but hectic few days in Seville. Being antisocial, we didn't want to share a pool or any other facilities with anyone else... which rather limited our options.

...but we absolutely hit the jackpot with Casa Ribeyro.

The welcome from Charles and Alex was lovely - they were friendly, generous and helpful from the minute they met us. They were great company, but were always thoughtful about leaving us to relax on our own. It's not easy to strike the balance, but they seemed to do it effortlessly. So - the perfect hosts - what about the gaff?

If you don't want a sympathetically decorated, rustic-but-with all-mod-cons, incredibly spacious and well laid out apartment, this won't do for you. If you're not interested in having your very own enormous sun terrace with pool, hot tub, shower, gas barbecue and various nooks and crannies to explore and hole up in, look elsewhere. If you really wouldn't like to wake up in the morning to a breathtaking, utterly spectacular 270-degree view of lake Vinhuela and its surrounding mountains, find somewhere else.

If you'd like all of those things and a whole lot more, I can't imagine a better place to spend a week. We travel around a fair bit and we both agreed that for self catering accommodation this is as close to perfection as you could wish for.

...I haven't mentioned the very generously stocked fridge, the excellent local bars and restaurants, the (hilly!) walks, the friendly and very Spanish locals, the dogs and cats, the utter peacefulness and tranquility and a host of other things that made our week there so wonderful. Did I mention that Alex and Charles were the perfect hosts? It's worth mentioning again - they helped to make our holiday a truly unforgettable experience. I reckon they could charge about 3 times as much as they do and it would still be a bargain (just don't tell them).

“What a place, what a view, what Hosts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This was a great stay. The accommodation is fabulous with great facilities and spectacular views across lake and mountains beyond. A charming little village up the hill and a great bar restaurant down the hill. Beautiful walks locally or try around the lake. Torre Del Mar is a charming little seaside town about six miles away with beautiful beaches and great restaurants. The Hosts, Charles and Alex are delightful company and unobtrusive unless you need help or advice or a drink! A great break and will definitely visit again.

“Glorious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

It is rare when the only complaint is that the photographs don't do Casa Ribeyro justice.
This was absolutely jawdroppingly gorgeous and we spent 5 lovely days here in October.
The main issue with Casa Ribeyro is that it is so lovely that neither my husband or I wanted to leave and as a result saw far little of the actual area than we planned!
Alex and Charles were also thoroughly pleasant and welcoming and their love of the area and the obvious work they have put into the property demonstrates how much they enjoy what they do which enhanced our enjoyment of the holiday.
As we love to discover new places, we rarely return even if we have loved our trip, but providing they will have us, we will definitely come back to Casa Ribeyro!
