Guestbook comments from the owner

'I booked the Hacienda for my 40th and it was an absolutely fantastic location. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for 'melt-down' and pure indulgence!' Hugh Monk, London 2012.

'As two families holidaying together we wanted lots to do but didn't want to travel so the Hacienda was great. We arranged a couple of activities but a poolside massage in the early evening was the highlight for me' - Cara Borgias Designer, Oxford. June 2012

'Thank you for a wonderful holiday at the Hacienda - nothing could have prepared us for the natural beauty of the location and the peaceful, undisturbed time we spent laying by the pool. The sauna was a real bonus and the Flamenco Night was a fantastic finale to our 2 weeks in Andalucia - we shall be back' Lewis and Jackson Families - August 2012

Fantastic character property with great service.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a family holiday of 12, with the group ranging from age 7 to 73. It has real character and the facilities are excellent. Wonderful pool, which we all enjoyed (easy step access) and the two gazebos gave much needed shade for those not swimming. The owners Tracie and Jason couldnt have been more helpful, and were very easy to contact. The surroundings were beautiful, very peaceful and the house provides so many areas from which you can enjoy the views. We would highly recommend asking Tracie to organise a visit by her chef, who was lovely. She created a lovely meal and birthday cake to celebrate the 8th birthday of my daughter, and Tracie and Jason also gave my daughter a present, which was especially kind. The chef cooked 3 further times, the meals were superb and excellent value.

The local town of Montefrio was charming and we very much recommend the Pollo asador (rotisserie chicken) from the vendor there (only available friday to monday, and needs to be pre booked)

Also make sure you visit the Alhambra in Granada (50 mins away), and Granada itself.

We would all highly recommend this property, not only for its location and character, but also for the support of Tracie and Jason both during the booking process and during the stay.

Thank you for a great holiday!

Wicked Week !

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a group of 12 friends stayed at Hacienda and absolutely loved it .

The location is remote and beautiful -no traffic or polution just nature.

We had a flamenco night with paella and dancing and a couple of trips out to Granada and Cordoba. The house is beautiful, feature rich and the pool area was amazing - one of my friends brought his guitar and we enjoyed many an evening singing our hearts out under the stars.

Montefrio town is really pretty and well worth a visit to the beautiful churches and olive factory - the olive oil was to die for and great to take home as a reminder.

Really recommend this place if you are a big family or group looking to get away from the city and soak up the sun and tranquility of this undisturbed jewel of a place.

T & J - thanks for everything - really memorable holiday for us all !
