“Excellent, exactly what we needed! Relaxing and off the beaten track.”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just what we wanted: Somewhere nice and off the beaten track where we could chill out, and yet where the kids could cool off too - great pool! Relaxed informal atmosphere, with three cats.
Views were wonderful, and we enjoyed many sunsets watching swallows (and later bats!) skimming the water surface for drinks - and insects, possibly?
The accommodation was nicely decorated, in keeping with the old farmhouse look of the building. Master bedroom was very comfortable and children were happy in their room, accessed via our shared bathroom (exclusive use).
Only had a few meals provided by hosts but they were excellent and reasonably priced. The children enjoyed cracking almonds and preparing them for use by Nacho , our chef!
Great location too for visiting Antequera, El Torcal, and easy for dropping into Malaga. Colmenar, the local village was nice with some great tapas bars and a bee museum! Also spent day at Granada. Marina's advice was always excellent and spot on!
Would recommend the location to anyone.

“Holiday of a lifetime!”

Holiday of a lifetime!! We felt so sad to leave and have to say a huge thank you to Marina and Nacho for creating a memorable experience. The pool, the views, the food, the place are all so beautiful and amazing but we have to say that the highlight is Marina and Nacho. You are such special people that the energy you create in your home is one of restoration and love for all guests. We fell in love with Spain and made lifelong friends too. Love Gina and Graham

Thank you so much for your stay. We are delighted you enjoyed your time here so much. I have translated your review below for non-German speakers:

We spent two nights in the beautiful Mongolian yurt and watched the night sky from the bed. The breakfast and dinner, which was lovingly prepared by Nacho was delicious and there was always nice and inspiring company of other guests from all over the world. The environment is wonderful and invites you to relax, hike or day trips. You can feel the love, the Nacho and Marina have put into in their home and the surrounding area and recommend every tourist spends some time in this beautiful place to stay.
