“The hospitality and personal attention make this luxurious b&b a special place to stay!”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

From the moment we arrived we felt totally at ease. The warm welcome, the beautiful surroundings and the impressive cortijo made us forget about daily life at once. There is plenty of sightseeing (Ronda, Sevilla, the white villages, etc) to do and Hans&Miranda also have nice tours you can do by car. In addition, you can relax by the fire place with a nice glass of wine and a book from the library. They even have a chef who cooks several nights per week. Very nice if you dont want to go out to town. All in all, a perfect place to stay!

Wow - what a wonderful place to rest, relax and explore the Andalucian region The property has been beautifully renovated whilst maintaining it's traditional and unique heritage, and is located in a lovely quiet spot close to the small town of Alcala del Valle. Miranda and Hans have left absolutely no stone unturned in their desire to create a warm and welcoming environment for their guests. All of the five bedrooms, as well as the spacious kitchen/ lounge and sitting/library area for guests are superbly appointed, for example with high quality bedding, extra large beds, complimentary tea and coffee making facilities in rooms, robes and much, much more. I was there for a chilly spring weekend and envy their summer guests who can also take advantage of the wonderful pool and numerous outdoor seating areas. The breakfast was delicious and extensive. I would not hesitate to recommend El Guarda to anyone searching for a relaxing and luxurious place to stay. Thank you Miranda and Hans, and of course Sam their very well behaved dog, for providing me with such a memorable experience.
