Lovely apartment. As described in details. Close to amenities, 2/3 shops few yards away. On our first evening a Tuesday, we had walk around. only found one bar open, after quite a walk around. On our last eve a Saturday we found several open, some that weren't even noticeable as bars/restaurants in the day. Do take ear plugs as there is a rather noisy cockerel from about 5 am! As it was a little chilly in the eves, Simon did provide a gas heater which did the trick. We visited other areas, Cutar - beautiful/stunning, and travelled down to Torre Del Mar, great shopping centre, close to beach. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

Suited us very well
I give this propertry 4 stars because it's what it says on the can. It is a comfortable property in a nice location with very pleasant views from the terrace. We had a great holiday here but we are walkers without young family and it just worked. However the property is neither spacious nor luxurious and in my view not very well suited for children. The owners are helpful yet not intrusive. Riogordo is a pleasant enough town BUT the important thing for us was that it is very central for a lot of hiking activities. So if you enjoy the outdoor life in this part of Spain, don't be put off by my review being a star short of excellent, accept it for what it is at the price, book it and have a great holiday, just like we did!
4 of us stayed here for 10 days in july 2018, no problems. nice place, clean, lovely roof terrace.great location. would use again.
Lovely clean apartment with the added bonus of the roof top terrace, with stunning views of the mountains and village. Very quite at night and during the day apart from the early morning noise from the local cockrels singing away. Simon was very accommodating as we had an early morning flight into Malaga and let us access the property earlier than stated as he had no one leaving on that morning. Although, no one was there to meet us, access was easy as the keys are in a lock safe and the code was sent prior to our arrival.
We visited a few local bars during our four night stay but our favourite by far, was the little bar as you come into Riogordo, just before the bridge near the mini supermarket "La Tienda Del Puente" which was reccomended to us by a local ex pat living there. Great tasty tapas!
We enjoyed the local market day although, we found it difficult to find. But, after asking some friendly locals " Por favour mercado local" (please local market) we were soon pointed in the right direction.
If you get the opportunity take the scenic drive up to the picturesque town of Comares. The drive up is windy and steep but once you get there the views are outstanding. It was a lovely morning walking around the streets following the moorish ceramic footprints around the town. It has a quaint little square where you can sit and have a drink and just relax, whilst admiring the views.
Zalig niet-toeristisch dorpje
Het dorp was vrij klein maar met voldoende lokale winkeltjes voor je boodschappen, en voldoende cafe's. Het appartement is perfect voor de lente of herfst. Het zonneterras is volgens mij te warm in de zomer, en het appartement zelf was aan de koude kant in de winter. Wel voorzien van alles wat je nodig hebt, goede bedden en een zeer vriendelijke, behulpzame eigenaar. En het voornaamste: het is een prachtige streek. We gaan het hier zeker verder verkennen!
