“Fantastical stay in Andalusia”
Reviewed March 7, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Though i knew that Castell de Ferro is a small town and has no tourists in wintertime i had a wonderful time in this lovely house. The trail up to the house ist alredy a voyage in another world. When you see these lovely white houses you feel very confortable. Nicky and his husband have been always here for me when they are needed. The house has everything you wish. It is very confortable an it will be in summertime a calm host. Castell de Ferro has everything you need. As I like mountains i could make a trip every day.

“Great property in lovely peaceful surroundngs”
Reviewed August 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We booked this property as we like Spain for being Spanish and not a English Resort with Spanish Weather and we were definitely not disappointed. As mentioned in a few other reviews , the drive to the property is initially challenging, but Nicky met us in Castell de Ferro and we followed her up the hillside, and by the 3rd journey I had found that staying in 1st gear all the way up the Kia Cee'd we had hired had no problems.
The property is in an great location with uninterrupted views down the hillside and also across to the village on the opposite hillside from both terraces. This is probably the 1st time I have experienced total blackness at night time and the sky was amazing, though it did make it interesting trying to find the way around the bedroom if you didn't put a light on.
Nicky had kindly provided some basic groceries which were very welcomed and Nicky or Rupert were always on hand if we needed anything, which luckily was not. The property has everything you require including a coupe of sun umbrellas, sunbeds, various locations for dining, and a good selection of DVD's / books. We enjoy walking and found plenty of enjoyable walks within an hours drive and the beach in Castell itself is also nice though it's more pebbles / shingle than sand, but at least you don't get sand in your food if you have a beach picnic.
The only small downside, which is nothing at all to do with then property is that it was difficult to find a supermarket open on the Sunday after we had arrived (even in Motril), but that's to be expected when going to a place not overrun by tourists.
Overall we really enjoyed our 2 weeks here and didn't want to leave.

“Sublime getaway - Effortless & amazing hospitality”
Reviewed July 28, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Booked this Villa based on the reviews and also because we like being slightly secluded and quiet when on holiday. I can truly say that the photos did not do this villa justice. We are a large family with 3 children and there was more than enough space for all of us. Three big bedrooms, 2 x living areas, 2 x private patios, one with a barbecue and a hot tub just for us. 2 x bathrooms. A fully equipped kitchen - and the list goes on & on. Loads of videos for the kids to watch during those hot summer hours of the day when the sun is just a bit too intense. The Villa is hidden away in the hills behind Castell De Ferro, with the beach only a 5 minute drive away. The drive is interesting as it is a windy road almost right to the top of the hills, but the view is breathtaking. Our hosts, Nicky and Rupert, were very helpful and a nice surprise, was an almost fully stocked kitchen with lovely goodies for the family to eat and drink. Very thoughtful! There is a shared swimming pool that you can use in the complex for a nominal weekly fee.

There is no air conditioning, but more than enough fans provided for all the family to use.

Everything was immaculately clean and well taken care off.

All in all a very good stay and I will definitely return. Lovely people and they deserve every bit of good feedback they get.

“Beautiful accommodation”
Reviewed October 26, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The service we received from the owners was faultless. We arrived in the middle of the night and the owners came to meet us to guide us to the accommodation. The fridge was stocked with lovely breakfast food which meant we could have a very lazy morning without wondering where we could get our shopping from.
The property was lovely. Really spacious and with a real 'Spanish villa' feel to it. Nice and quiet, relaxing and clean with lots of things supplied ie) Shampoo, suntan lotion. I needn't have packed hardly anything!!
The closest town was friendly, and pebbled beach lovely. Loved the house the most. The accommodation is very secluded, and up a mountain (which is what we wanted) but it meant no alcohol when we were out in the evening as driving is essential.
I would definitely recommend this property to others. We took our 3 year old and she loved the jacuzzi and the games provided, but just want to note that there were a lot of stone stairs which I was a but nervous about.
Recommend- The restaurant attached to the Bp garage!!

“House with the definite WOW factor.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

people found this review helpful

We stayed for only 6 days and I really didn't want to leave. The location is so peaceful and tranquil. The drive to the property was initially quite hairy but we soon got used to it. So much so we are considering a return visit next year. The décor is superb. There was only 2 in our party but there was so much space inside and outside. The kitchen equipment was better than that I have at home.
The welcome pack was plentiful and varied.
We picked figs and almonds growing yards away from the house.
The townfolk were very friendly and being in Granada we had free tapas with every drink.
Nicky and Rupert are wonderful hosts, helpful but discrete. We would highly recommend this beautiful house.
