Guestbook comments from the owner

'To be entirely selfish, we would like to keep it for ourselves! We never seem to do anything much but that is its charm.'

'This will be our fifth visit and what we look forward to so much is the tranquility and peace of the house and its position. We spend our days by the pool in the delightful garden, with orange and lemon trees.'

'The house is laid out very well and is comfortable for 10.We have had children of all ages from 10 to 30 with us and they have all found plently to do.We love the area and the incredible views to the Rif Mountains and occassionally beyond. Tennis court and pool are lovely'

A Great Place to Unwind

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful holiday at Los Cristales. It was perfect for everyone - young and old - and it is somewhere we would most certainly like to return to.

My son-in-law arrived weary with business hassle, and thoroughly exhausted after a heavy and difficult workload. He continued to relax and after two weeks was a different person - for the better. We all benefitted from the wonderful villa - the comfortable bedrooms, the easy living space, and the magnificent, beautifully landscaped garden. The children - 9, 7 and 5, lived in the pool, and as the weather was perfect, the rest of us swam - to a greater or lesser degree. Again the design of the pool,surrounded by lawn, was wonderful, and lovely to get away from the usual formal rectangular ones.

And as for the view - well, we gazed and marvelled at the surrounding countryside, the Mediterranian, and the Rif Mountains hourly! Two of our party much enjoyed riding up in the mountains with the english lady just along the road from us.

And Gaucin was a delightful village where it was a pleasure to stroll.

We did love the comfortable lived in feel of the house, which is always a bonus with little children. Antonia looked after the house really well and was discreet and charming, supplying us with lots of good towels. And Jose-Maria kept the garden and pool in very good order.
