“An absolute gem - I'm almost afraid to share”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014 for a stay in May 2013

Casa de Colores is the dream holiday rental! My husband and I were looking for somewhere to really relax. I was hoping Casa de Colores would be as good as it looked and we really, genuinely weren't disappointed. The property is so well appointed whichever room you are staying in, you will have your own little corner of heaven.
This is a holiday for those who want to mentally "check out" when they check in. Its off the beaten track and is a better find for those who prefer wildlife to nightlife. We enjoyed lovely scenic walks in the surrounding hills, and lots of lazing by the pool. The owner is extremely helpful and able to advise on local restaurants etc. In fact she was brilliant and is around as much or as little as you need.
It is remote though and you will need to rent a car to get here and get around - but it is certainly worth it and the property has lots of nice terraces, poolside seats etc where you can sit and enjoy a few holiday drinks - no taxi required.
We WILL be back!!!

“Peace.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

I visited this fabulous place a couple of times last year. Once in the winter and once in the summer. The house is cool in the summer with the great pool area coming into its own. In winter the days are dry and sunny with the surrounding hills providing lots of scope for stretching the legs, on foot or bike. The house is nestled amongst working Spanish farms and I loved the feeling of being off the tourist trail.
I found the nearest large supermarket was 25 mins away and able to provide all I needed for a week or more. You won't be walking to the nearest restaurant for dinner so fill up the big fridge and you'll be fine. Maureen, the owner, was great. Very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. She helped me out on several occasions and with her fluent Spanish and magnificent taxiing abilities nothing was too much trouble for her.

Thank you for your lovely comments. It was a pleasure to have you and hope to see you again soon. Good to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Of course, apart from the large supermarket which is a bit of a drive away, people can also pop to the ´local´ shop at the bar 2kms away for any essentials. With the meat, fish, general supplies and bread delivery men calling to the village, it also means that if visitors don´t want to leave the house to shop, they don´t have to.

Hope to see you again soon.

“The most lovely and relaxing holiday ever in stunning surroundings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Casa de Colores is a stunning house set on a mountain surrounded by beautiful countryside. The grounds are full of flowers and fruit trees and the pool is in a lovely olive grove.
The accommodation is delightful and it is evident that the owner takes a great deal of pride in her house from the internal layout and décor to the wonderful sunny patio and roof terrace.
I will certainly be going back to Casa de Colores next year as I was made so welcome by the owner Maureen who is a fantastic host. Nothing was too much trouble.
A wonderful holiday where you really do "get away from it all!"
