Casa Don Carlos - what a find! It's a sweet little guest house in the Andalusian mountains - clean, well-designed and run in a personable, friendly way by its owners Carlo and Ronald, who have put an exceptional amount of thought and care into making the place perfectly comfortable with everything you could want. Their customer service is second-to-none, they're attentive, thoughtful and lovely to chat with - dinner with them and the other guests in the evenings was a real treat.
Casa Don Carlos is ideally placed for exploring Andalusia, and Carlo and Ronald have got plenty of information, tourist maps and suggested tours all mapped out on cards you can borrow for the day, plus tips on parking, shortcuts, where to find quieter, unspoiled beaches on the Costa Del Sol, you name it. They even make sure you take their phone number with you when you go exploring - any problems, you just give them a call.
The exploring is great, but I'd also strongly recommend taking a few lazy days just to stay at 'home' at Casa Don Carlos. There's a spacious terrace with enough room to relax and be peaceful, enjoying the magnificent view of the valley and mountains. We had a few lovely days sunbathing and lounging around on the terrace or by the pool, ordering lunch from Carlo (an amazing cook!), and then a leisurely dinner in the evening with the other guests.
If you do stay at Casa Don Carlos, and I highly recommend you do, light sleepers might appreciate ear plugs, as I did. The neighbouring villas are very well spaced out, but there are several dogs in the valley who like to hold a shouting match most evenings. There are good strong shutters in the bedroom which cut out most of the noise, but if you prefer fresh air it does come with a bit of yapping.
