Perfection !!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently arrived home from an amazing stay at this beautiful farmhouse, which is fully equipped with everything you need for a relaxing , comfortable stay. Anne and Richard were on hand to offer any help

Or guidance we needed and made us feel extremely welcome, lovely couple.

The pool was ideal for the children and they had hours of fun.

Having a car enabled us to explore the beautiful neighbouring villages ,Estepona, Rhonda and we even took a trip to Gibraltar.

Thank you for letting us stay, and experience this beautiful place! We cannot wait to return.

A peaceful hideaway in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from any and all kind of hustle and bustle, this is for you.

The location is just off a very quiet mountain road near a highland river which you can hear from the patio. Plenty of local flora and fauna right on the doorstep with some locally signed walking routes not too far away either.

The house has been beautifully renovated by an expert craftsman and is kept lovely and clean with all the utensils and implements you need for a self catering holiday.

The owners are a friendly couple who are on hand should you need anything or advice and obviously take great pride in their property and the quality of your stay.

You do need to come prepared though, we didn't find a local shop that was open (but we didn't look hard) but had been warned of this by the owners when we booked so arrived with supplies from the well stocked supermarket in Estapona which is around an hours drive away.

Walking in the Park Natural just up the road is spectacular too and we can recommend the home cooked food in the park's carpark near the overlook.

The only down side is if you are a light sleeper as the usual rural Mediterranean blight of barking dogs prevails all night, up and down the valley. This is no fault of the owners whose dogs are kept in check at night, rarely barked, are well behaved and super friendly.

Beautiful house in a beautfiul setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying in the house. Anne and Richard were lovely and very helpful, giving us tips on where to visit and good places to eat.

The house itself is immaculate and well equipped. The outdoor space is wonderful too with a beautiful terrace and swimming pool. The pictures really don't do it justice.

The views from the property are stunning as you are in the mountains and it was the ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle of London. The nearest town is 15 minute drive away (Genalguacil) and definitely worth a visit - amazing views from the mountain roads!)

We would definitely stay again. Our only regret was that we only booked it for one week - we didn't want to go home!

Thank you Anne and Richard for a fantastic holiday!

Amazing mountain villa with stunning scenery

  • 5 of 5

The warm welcome we received from Anne and Richard was very much appreciated after the long drive from Gibralter Airport (we came in on a longer route than we needed to). The farmhouse that we stayed in was perfect for a family of 4 and we had everything we needed for making us feel at home. It was very well equipped with all modern appliances and was extremely clean. The outside areas were spacious with plenty of shade from the hot sun and a wonderful 10 metre pool. The views of the mountains were fantastic and we did note that the photographs on the website do not do the villa justice. We can honestly say that this was one of the best villa's we have ever stayed at and have recommended it to friends and family. We did not want to leave, especially once we got used to driving through the mountain road to Estepona. We enjoyed sight seeing in Estepona and Ronda as well as the closer village of Genalguacil. It was fantastic flying to and from Gibraltar because it was quick and easy walking across the border to Spain to pick up the hire car. We then had the luxury of spending the afternoon in Gibraltar before flying home. A massive thank you to Anne and Richard for helping make our stay so enjoyable.

Tranquility in a beautiful, accessible location

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, super clean and complete holiday facilities with great care taken in the small details. Ideal surroundings to take a break from it all in a convenient location only 40 minutes from the Costa del Sol, and with a fantastic brand new road linking to the nearest white village. Just 10 drive minutes to Genalguacil and you are in the breathtaking Genal Valley... fresh air, amazing views, long walks, bike rides, mountain hikes, river picnics, local produce, a museum, bars and small shops... it's all there. If you prefer to stay in, you can curl up by the fire, cook on the barbecue, or just sit out on the patio... the pool is large and inviting with a relaxing terrace area... perfect in the warmer weather. Richard and Anne are friendly, helpful and on hand to deal with any queries. Being very experienced in property lets, they really have thought of everything, so all you have to worry about is enjoying your stay.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit, the first being a summer one, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The winter stay has been just as enjoyable. As the weather wasn’t as hot as the first time we were there we decided to do a bit more site seeing, we found that although the property feels very rural it is close to a lot of major towns. As before Anne & Richard were very helpful and we were made to feel welcome.

The property is very well equipped with everything you might need and the open fire was a real treat for a cosy evening in, the perfect place relax and detach yourself from every day stress. Just amazing scenery, fantastic views and pool area was just spectacular.
