“Fantastic location, truly tranquil, great hosts , well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

I have visited Casa Barranco on a number of occasions because my partner and I enjoy the tranquility of the location, it is peaceful and has beautiful surroundings.
Casa Barranco is of a high quality accommodation that gives you a homely feeling. Every amenity you require is found in the accommodation and the hosts, Pete and Heather are always willing to help give you information on the area, they really encourage a Spanish lifestyle and are very knowledgeable of the surrounding area and offer advice on local places of interest.
Having done a number of visits we have been to Granada and visited the Alambera Palace - definitely well worth a visit; the coast is only an hour's drive away and there are moany other places of interest. Definitely well worth a visit and there are four accessible airports, Alicante, Murcia, Granada and Almeria, all close to a motorway.

“Fantastic Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed here for 2 weeks in August 2012 and had a lovely holiday. Well equipped casa with amazing view. Very spacious inside with bedroom opening onto pool area and under cover gazebo if you want to sit out of the sunshine. This villa is quite remote so you definitely would be best off hiring a car. We like to be away from it all so it really suited us. Owners were on hand to help and advise and were very welcoming and friendly without being intrusive in any way. Highly recommended if you want to experience the real spain without the tourist traps.

“Superb place to relax and chill in beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

Set in the mountains with its own pool, this is a superb property with lots of space and very good facilities. A great place to chill, relax, walk, swim, enjoy the wildlife, flora and fauna. The hosts make the place - very hospitable, friendly knowledgable, and helpful. Excellent value for money. Nearby is the charming village of Oria. This year will be our fifth visit! Strongly recommended.

“A peaceful stay in rural Spain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

Casa Barranco was the ideal location for a break from normal routine. The house was extremely comfortable and equipped with everything we could conceivably need. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing by the pool, enjoying the spectacular views. It was wonderful to float in the water watching eagles circling overhead. Heather and Pete are perfect hosts, friendly and helpful but never intrusive. If you are looking for a peaceful break in rural Spain, we can not recommend this property highly enough. We certainly intend to return!

“Lovely casa, great hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 for a stay in October 2012

We had a delightful break in Oria. The casa was authentic Spannish style with all modern amenities, spacious and beautifully clean. Pete and Heath were perfect hosts - readily available when we needed advice on where to visit, and also provided us with privacy and freedom to enjoy the casa. Beautiful views of sunrise and lovely memories of that glass of red by the pool at sunset!
