Bruce and Ingrid have been wonderful hosts, I stayed hear with an 83 year young lady, we loved the meadows and the views, don't pass this one up, it's a little gem. Thank you both for all your help, I'm sure we will be back.

Very welcoming hosts, beautiful surroundings, a very spacious (and still cosy) room and bathroom, a delicious breakfast... A great place to stay! We only stayed here for one night but we loved every minute of it. Bruce and Ingrid welcomed us with a nice beer and they had a lot of tips about the neighbourhood. They showed us how we...

Our stay at El Diplomatico Feo was the perfect end to our 3 week tour of Andalucia. It is one of the most relaxing places I have ever stayed. Bruce and Ingrid are perfect hosts and not only have a great knowledge of the surrounding areas but have a wealth of stories of their travels around the world as diplomats...

We had a marvellous time here. The setting just outside San Pablo de Buceite (and near a number of very interesting Pueblo Blancos) was perfect-quiet, up a slight hill which made for a nice breeze and wonderful views-all the way to Gibraltar on a clear day, walking distance to a very good restaurant (and many more a short drive away),...

At a beautiful location in the mountains of Andalucia you will find El Diplomatico Feo. Bruce and Ingrid are warm and lovely hosts with a lot of interesting stories! Each room is decorated in the style of a country in which Bruce and Ingrid have worked. The rooms are large and well equiped. Bruce and Ingrid know the best places...

A genuinely warm welcome from Ingrid and Bruce set the scene for a fantastic week. El Diplomatico Feo in set amongst beautiful scenery in the real Spain, very different to anything like one encounters on the Costa de Concretes. The rooms are large, superbly equipped and just a step away from the amazing views. Then there are the wonderful breakfasts...

We booked for thee days in mid-April and extended our stay another day. Would have stayed even longer if schedule had permitted. El Diplomatico is in a secluded country garden setting, yet it is close to everything. The major attractions in the cities of Andalucía are fascinating but busy. El Diplomatico offers a wonderfully relaxing contrast. However, it also offers...

Set in acres of green mountainous countryside the clean fresh air provides an antidote for the stresses of modern day life. The view from the terrace where breakfast is served is superb and you can enjoy Spanish cooking such as Spanish omelette or local ham and cheeses. The rooms are large and the tiled floors must be cooling in the...

Bruce and Ingrid were the perfect introduction to Spain. Learned so much about Spanish culture and food from them. Accommodations and property are beautiful. Delicious breakfast and great conversation. Enjoyed every minute. Can't wait to visit again.

What a lovely place. Pretty, quirky and spacious. Bruce and Ingrid were very lovely people with so many interesting stories and helpful information to give us. We stayed as two couples, and were immediately offered refreshments on arrival, before we relaxed round the pool all afternoon. Beautiful clean bedrooms, comfortable beds, tea & coffee in the rooms. All was perfect....
