“Quiet, bohemian retreat with world class cuisine”
Reviewed 14 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Marina and Nacho are wonderful. On a ten day cycling trip through picturesque Spain, this was our favorite stop. Even though we only spent a day together, I feel like they are true friends. The house is historic, eclectic and comfortable. The dinner we had together was nothing short of a Michelin rating.

Do yourself a favor and spend more than a day here.

“Spanish Mountains Healing Home”
Reviewed 3 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I stayed at the Unique Retreat with Marina and Nacho for 5 nights in the yurt, and it was the highlight of my time in Spain. It's an easy drive 25-30 mins from Malaga, but you feel like you are in the midst of the authentic, beautiful Spanish countryside with the most caring hosts in the world. This place can give you all that you need either full relaxation to numerous incredible day trips with a piece of paradise to return home to at the end of the day. I did a bit of both :) I stayed in the yurt which feels very private, but also close enough to interact with other guests and the hosts. The property and main house of a beautiful energy that has only been heightened by Marina and Nacho's hard work. You can walk all around the various surrounding properties with stunning views all around. You are only a few minute drive from the precious white washed town of Colmenar as well.

Nacho and Marina are incredible hosts with big hearts that make the most delicious food. If you stay, I would highly recommend at least one meal with them. I ate every meal with them, and I loved getting to know them both. They both have had very interesting lives and have great information and stories to share. I also really enjoyed the dinners because I was able to get to know a number of guests staying better, and I cannot emphasis enough how delicious the food is. Nacho really puts his heart and soul into his cooking, and really anything he does.

This is a very special place. You will have a magical experience however you choose to spend your time here! Book it...

“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.
