“Absolutely fabulous”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I can't put into words how good this holiday was. After a year of stress, this wonderful place (El Torin), was just what we needed. It was clean, comfortable, picturesque, peaceful and a lot of thought had gone in to this property to make it feel like home. The views from every angle were simply magical, with the property situated on one side of a valley surrounded by olive and other sun soaked colourful trees and shrubs, where you could see the mountains , the valley and the sea. An added bonus, was knowing that both Javier and Rosario were on hand, for any guidance or help. I had major toothache at the beginning of the holiday and Javier kindly advised, that if I required a dentist, he would immediately book the appointment with a well respected Dentist, fortunately the pain subsided, but this is a good example of being well looked after, from people who 'go that extra mile'. The area is just magnificent, because you have stunning walks around and near the property, the relaxing quaint white washed and flower covered Frigiliana (about 5 minutes drive) and the slightly busier, but just as attractive Nerja, with all the shops and wonderful beaches. Some fantastic restaurants with varying price ranges by the way, in the above mentioned areas. To conclude, I would not hesitate to recommend this place to stay and the only negative, was leaving!

“Discovered A Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We have just returned from the most relaxing holiday we've ever had. My husband booked this holiday for my 40th birthday, he wanted a peaceful retreat, away from a built up resort, somewhere special, full of character and with wonderful views, El Torin was all of this and more. From the moment we arrived we knew we had discovered a very special place and two very special people, our hosts, Javier and Rosario. We were made to feel so welcome. When we left El Torin and said our goodbye's to Javier and Rosario all we could think about was of our return to El Torin and seeing our newly made friends again very soon. Geoff and Caroline

“lovely cottage in andalusia”
Reviewed September 6, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

had a lovely stay at this hideaway retreat near Nerja, about 30 minute drive from malaga airport. Although the house has 2 bedrooms we found it too small should we have had 4 people in our party. For the two of us it was excellent. Beautiful quiet location on a hillslope near national park with lots of walkingtrails, Nerja nearby is conveniend for shopping and a trip to the beach. The swimmingpool looked bigger in the photo on the site but was still large enough for cooling off.
Bit steep to get to the house by car from firgiliana, but great fun to drive on this small up and down road across the riverbed. we gave the owner some pointers as what to do to make a stay more comfortable,....3 weeks later he'd already had changed some things for the better. good and very friendly services by the owners. truly recommended !!!!!
