“Great Stay in Breathtaking Location”
Reviewed July 3, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We rented the Cortijo, the larger of the two rental properties on the site. The owners also live in the Cortijo, but their residence is kept separate by an archway, gate and wall. Access to the property is along a track that winds its way across farm fields from the main road. It took us - driving tentatively and carefully - around 10 minutes to drive the track to the main road since the surface is uneven and in places the road has been washed out. We didn't rent a 4WD, but we felt that having one would be an advantage both for access and in the local area.

The farmhouse has a commanding view of the surrounding countryside; the plateau of El Torcal to the north and great vistas down to the coastal cities of Malaga and Torremolinos some 35km to the south. We all spent a long time simply taking in the views.

The farmhouse itself suited our extended family - each of the three bedrooms has its own bathroom and shower and for most of our stay in June, the rooms stayed at a pleasant temperature. For the majority of our stay, there was a breeze, or wind, that cooled things off. We loved having the pool which made up for its small size by being surprisingly deep at one end. We also enjoyed making friends with the owners dogs and the menagerie of farm animals kept in the enclosures behind the house.

The hosts, David and Diana were absolutely perfect hosts and wonderful to us all during our stay. On arrival they provided wine and a few locally made products. We were lucky to find some basic foodstuffs in the fridge and larder that kept us going until we could shop in Villanueva de la Conception, the nearest town.

There are untethered dogs at neighbouring farms, so we had to drive very carefully on the track up to the Cortijo. The dog situation probably dissuaded us from doing as much walking in the immediate vicinity of the Cortijo as we would have liked.
