“A perfect holiday retreat”

Lovely little open plan cottage with amazing views. The apartment is very well equipped. Lots of windows for light but all with shutters for privacy. Plenty of space for sitting out and dining. It was fun to make use of the produce grown in the garden in our cooking and the clay oven made cooking interesting and challenging. The small log burner also proved useful on chilly nights. Lots of walking in the area. Decent shops and bars in the nearest towns. Getting up the drive to the top where the cottage is involves some steep sections and takes a bit of nerve the first time. But it's worth it for the quiet location and uninterrupted views.

“Brilliant Location, Lovely Views and Perfect Peace & Quiet”

person found this review helpful

This is our second visit to Cuesta Vinas and it doesn't disappoint. The locale is great, so peaceful and the views from the terrace change colour as the day progresses. The pool is idyllic and you have perfect peace with great views. Terry & Ginny are great hosts, there to help if needed, but otherwise they leave you in peace. The location is great for touring the Sierra Nevada or there are many walking trails: and thecoast is only an hour and a half away. The local village of Valor is traditional Spain, so there is little English spoken, which can make shopping fun.
It's just a great place to relax and unwind, thoroughly recomend it and we shall be going again !

Enjoy

Our holiday at Cuesta Vinas was idyllic. Absolute peace and stunning scenery, with a very comfortable house and pool. The area has endless beauty and the local pueblo has all the basic amenities you need, with many walks and small towns and villages in easy reach, and the coast and Granada within a days drive. The hosts are friendly and helpful. If you want peace, beauty, comfort, great weather, in Spain (not Uk-on-sea), you will love it.

“gorgeous relaxing holiday”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

This was one of the most beautiful and well-equipped places I have ever stayed in. The views from the terrace were stunning, at any time of day but even more so at sunset or even just before when the evening sun outlined the hills with shadow, or in the morning with mysterious mists rising from the valleys. The wild flowers everywhere were incredibly beautiful.

The information provided was useful and the recommended bar that was half an hour's
lovely walk away in Valor was amazing - massive tapas with drinks - they'd be raciones anywhere else.We also walked to Yegen and were given a great lunch by an Irish woman marreid to a Spaniard - with veg from their farm.

There were plenty of places for short, fairly level walks and also for longer treks along the GR7.

We want to go again before long.

“CUESTA VINAS HAS STOLEN OUR HEARTS”

We have now stayed at Cuesta Vinas three times and quite simply it has stolen our hearts.
We never tire of the stunning views that you get from the lovely terrace, the pool area is amazing WOW it is also a good sized pool too.
The owners Ginny & Terry are two fantastic people they could not be more welcoming and friendly, we enjoyed a fantastic night with them and their neibours having a barbque and drinks thanks for the great food and hospitality.
They have two beautifull dogs Lottie and Josh you will find them very friendly, It helps when you are missing your own pets.
The house is a good size and has everthing you need for a nice comfortable holiday.
The whole area of Valor is very nice decent tapas bars in the village and a couple of well stocked shops. There are larger shops in nearby Ugijar not to far away.
Also recommended is adrive around the many nearby white villages, not touristy and spoilt like many places in spain.
The thing we loved most was to just sit on the terrace at night with a bottle or two of wine and never cease to be wowed by the beautiful stars in the night sky.
Thanks Ginny and Terry for all your hard work and sweat in creating this beautiful piece of paradise.

A great place to stay...was happily surprised on arrival. Fantastic views, private courtyard and small pool. Beautiful scenery. Quiet and peaceful, it is not for the party goer, but if you love a bit of relaxation, hiking, and exploring its a great place to say. The hosts were so lovely, even inviting us to a dinner party one night. A lovey and different mini break. Thanks Terry and Ginny.

We had a lovely time at Cuesta Vinas. Ginny and Terry are very welcoming and made us feel completely at ease. The garden and private pool are delightful and the views of the Sierra Nevada are stunning. We made the most of the local stores and markets and managed to use both the BBQ and the clay oven - only burning one Pizza (a human error rather than an oven malfunction). We were particularly delighted with the gentle sound of morning goat bells from across the hills.
We had the most peaceful holiday ever and will certainly be returning.
