We spent a month in Casita de la Luna 8, a one-bedroom cottage in the mountain "white village" of Cutar. If you enjoy a rustic holiday, I can't imagine a more genuine place to spend some time. The roosters announce the dawn, the birds sing all day long. The views from the cottage terrace are enchanting. We could watch the fields, olive groves, vineyards, and the comings and goings of the residents as they went about their daily lives. John & Judy were excellent hosts, attentive to our needs. The cottage was very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. Heaven does come with a few caveats: be prepared to walk some steep streets and stairs as you come & go from casita to car, and also drive some winding mountain roads; plan to prepare your own meals, or eat out in adjacent towns and villages, there's very little in the way of bars or restaurants in Cutar. That of course was part of the charm to us: we could buy fresh fish three times a week from the van that stopped in town, groceries from the little market in the village or in nearby town markets. Comares, Benamargosa, Almachar, and Velez-Malaga are all 15-20 min drives nearby and have a wide range of dining possibilities. Some grasp of basic Spanish will be useful. Except for John & Judy and a handful of British ex-pats all we heard spoken was Spanish. Folks are patient and helpful and lots of pantomime also works too. We'd love to go back again.

Liked best: The view from the terrace was enchanting. We read, ate, dozed there.
Liked least: The occasional racket of noisy town dogs; a minor inconvenience and mostly ignored.

“A Slice of Rural Life”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The accommodation was excellent value and as such was of a high standard. My wife and I did not have a car (we used the public bus service from Torre Del Mar to Cutar) and found that there was plenty to do during our week long stay. Our focus was exploring the local countryside on foot (landscape fairly steep in all directions, so reasonable fitness is a must), and generally relaxing in the cottage (perfect for this - although a suggestion for improvement would be to include more comfortable chairs on the balcony).

The village had all the basic essentials. A store, a bar, fresh food deliveries, etc

Nearby villages such as El Borge have more to offer if you are looking for a restaurant or swimming pool (although it is only open during the Spanish summer months - which means it is closed in September even though the temperatures are still in the high 20s!).

A very good option for people who are looking for a holiday with a difference, or who are interested in getting 'back to basics' (in a good way).
