3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

July is much too hot to stay here, and that mistake was entirely ours!
The location, setting and tranquility of the large and grand Cortjio property are all amazing! Sadly, however, we did not feel welcome. The continual emphasis on the necessity to use power frugally really impinged on our enjoyment of what was an expensive venue and was mutually exclusive with provision of the digital TV, DVD player, washing machine, pool (with necessary filtration unit) and indoor and outdoor lighting for a large property with 3 double en-suite bedrooms. Not to mention the wifi which is also provided, but which is useless without all the necessary power-consuming hardware accompanying guests interested in using it. The bottom line is that the solar power generation and the power hungry facilities supplied at the house are clearly at odds. The worry of over- using power really did spoil the enjoyment of our holiday and must have been unnecessary since we were only 3 in number, in a property...

We all loved Finca al-manzil, even better than the photos. Not an average holiday house, full of personality, comfortable and felt like home with lots of books and dvds for entertainment. The pool is wonderful with great views and a little terrace above for just 2 people. We loved the Saturday market in Montanchez and exploring the nearby historical towns. A super holiday, perfect mix of relaxing at the peaceful environment of the finca and some more active walking and exploring. We shall certainly return.
