About Angela

My husband and I moved to this beautiful region 16 years ago...and are still singing its praises! Our children were born here and have totally embraced the Spanish way of life and language. We endured many years of toil, mañana syndrome, heat, frustration, situations lost in translation.....you've heard it all in the novels! We now run our own exclusive property rental business here in this spectacular region. We have a selection of beautiful properties to suit most peoples' requirements, with private pools, gardens and fabulous views. It was worth it, sometimes we even squeeze a little time to enjoy the sunshine, relaxing way of life and fabulous regional cuisine....and vino! Our extensive knowledge of the area we also pass on to clients to ensure they have a wonderful time.

Beautiful place, amazing location. We have loved our time here. The bonus- nightingales singing at night (May), cuckoos by day, stunning display of stars, a moon you could read a newspaper by, and wonderful peace. Jill & Rosalind

According to Callum "this place rocks" and we all agree. We've had a great time.Simon & family, Appleton Roebuck , York.

Just what we needed- a peaceful spot with lots of beautiful scenery, sun and open space; a fabulous place to relax. Dee, Mark & family.

Lovely property in a quiet, secluded spot

  • 4 of 5

Lovely stay. A comfortable and well stocked villa with a lovely pool in peaceful surroundings which was accurately portrayed in the details. The villa was clean and tidy with Angela being flexible about us arriving and helpful afterward. Extras were provided for us with a travel cot and highchair which was much appreciated.

We would recommend this property for anyone who likes to be a little out of the way and wanting a quiet holiday in the mountains, and doesn't mind driving to get to the wealth of places to see around the area.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

Stunning country retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely country house with wonderful views. This was exactly what I wanted, a private Spanish retreat. The house is down a short, steepish track perfectly suitable for a normal car. The owner has another house very nearby, so you do not feel totally isolated. It is a short easy drive into the lovely town of Colmenar. The house had a well stocked kitchen, so if you choose not to leave the house, you can cook up your own fantastic meals. The pool is small, perfect for cooling dips. You are surrounded by the noises of the countryside, birds and the daily passing of the goat herd. You can easily forget that there is a world beyond your own little hill, but the wifi is very strong if you need to dip into the modern world. Wonderful.
