This is a stunning property. We had a fabulous time & were very sad to leave.
We stayed for a week at the end of August - at one point 19 people for 3 nights & 15 people for the rest of the week. 1 toddler & 2 under 5 yr olds (& 2 under 10 yr olds for 3 nights) & 3 over 70 yr olds.
Booking was very easy & liaising with Amanda (owner) was simple. We had loads of help on email from local manager Kimberley with allocating rooms for grandparents & families with children & booking local cooks (Sisters Nieves & Isabel) for first evening & for the birthday celebration.
The property was perfect for our family & friends. There are so many gems to discover. All the bedrooms & bathrooms were really lovely, full of character & individual. The pool area was where we spent most of the time as a group, with lots of shady areas & outdoor fridge & freezer making it perfect for our party week. (The stone paving around the pool is slippery when wet, children had to be repeatedly reminded not to run, but still had a few falls-luckily no injuries).
The feel of the place was truly wonderful. Secluded in a valley, loads of greenery, lovely lawn, stream nearby, goat bells, birds, peach, lemon & pomegranate trees. The children adored playing with the kittens, feeding the chickens & collecting fresh eggs! There are ducks too.
There was enough space for people to escape both indoors & outdoors. We didn't use the Mill room below -there was just so much else to do outdoors-but it's a fantastic bonus. We had real fun with table tennis, pétanque & football. Not enough time to fit in badminton!
The main kitchen was just great, & loved the huge old bread oven. 2 massive fridges was very handy & never did we struggle for anything we needed for our large group.
Kimberley was a great manager, the perfect help for arrangements, & very warm & friendly. The food from Nieves & Isabel was utterly delightful, everyone loved it. It was the best food we had (we stayed on afterward in another place for a week) whilst in Andalucia.
We had such a truly magical & wonderful time. We are all already planning our return! Thank you so much to Amanda, Nick, Kimberley, Nieves & Isabel.

What an amazing place! We chose this villa as our wedding destination from the website alone & we weren't disappointed. The location, grounds, setting, rooms, pool everything is just lovely. If you are a large family or group this place is perfect. It has lots of parking and loads of space so you aren't all under everyone else's feet. We all had a lovely week here and look at the photos all the time wishing we were there and dreaming about when we can go back. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location for our special day. Thank you for everything.

We had our wedding here last weekend. It was the perfect venue, just big enough for our family and a few friends.
There was something for everyone whether it was collecting the eggs from the hens, feeding the kittens, through to the badminton, table tennis tournaments that all got a bit serious! When all that got a bit much there was a lovely pool to relax by and more books than you could ever need. The living room was big enough for everyone that wanted to to watch the World Cup games and comfy enough for tired children to watch a Thomas DVD.
The kitchen was more than adequate I just wish if known how good the local cooks food was - we'd have got them in every day!
Kimberly, the manager was a great help, she provided a really personal service and made us feel at home and that nothing was too much bother.
The only thing that could have improved it was air con in some more of the rooms as some were pretty warm at night even with the fans but hey if the only complaint is its warm in Spain in June then that's not much of a surprise!
The whole place far exceeded our expectations! If you want a remote getaway for some close family and friends or a small wedding or birthday celebration I cant recommend this place more.
