Two weeks relaxing off the beaten track
My partner and I enjoyed two weeks in Sue's lovely villa. We found it to be perfectly secluded and very comfortably furnished. We mainly relaxed by the pool and self catered in the well equipped kitchen in the evenings. Good supermarkets are available in Loja (about 40mins drive away) and we enjoyed trips to Grenada, Seville and Cordoba. We walked into nearby Algarinejo (only for confident walkers as its very steep) but its also only a short 10min drive away.
The casa is superb, it was the best property rental that we have ever stayed in and over the years we have stayed in many. It was so well and thoughtfully equipped with everything in the right place to ensure a wonderful holiday. The quality of the furnishings and fittings including the sunshades were first class.
The property manager Sue was very efficient, very friendly and there to help should the need arise without imposing herself - she is great!
We enjoyed a fantastic time - made full use of the pool in this beautiful casa in a beautiful area.
Lovely villa perfect setting
The villa and grounds were spectacular only complaint was the pool was freezing I had chosen the villa for its location and pool, but it was too cold to swim, my partner never even ventured in the pool. Daily morn chorus of dogs was annoying but realised you are in the mountains and everything echoes , otherwise we had a great time lots of places to visit. Place very private with outstanding views
Clean, spacious, well-equipped and very peaceful.
We enjoyed our stay very much but a car is essential. Travelling to town to get groceries or have a meal can be pretty terrifying when other cars come round the bends in the middle of the road! Sue was very helpful and a good source local knowledge.
Returned last week after 2 glorious weeks at Casa Jose, didn't want to come home. The Villa and pool are fabulous, better than description, they were spotlessly clean and has every thing you could possibly need The location was just right for a perfect private get away.
We can't thank Sue enough she was a Fantastic host always on hand if we had any questions and made some great Tapas!!!!
Can't recommend this enough for a beautiful rural holiday.
Hopefully we will be back next year.

Thanks for your lovely review. It is such a beautiful spot and so private.I know that you loved the views. It is so peaceful in the area and glad that I was only along the track if you had any questions that you needed answers to. There are so few places for 2 of that size to rent and really happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Villa. Hope to meet up again next year! And thanks for asking me to your place for a BBQ ! Best wishes Sue.
5 star we love it here
This was not the first time we have visited the Casa and definitely will not be the last!
The house has everything we could possibly need for a relaxing, peaceful and tranquil holiday away from the hussle and bussle of London!
The Casa is always kept clean, and Sue and Ken are wonderful hosts who will do as much as they can to help you with anything you may need.
For those who do not want to be completely cut off from the rest of the world the WIFI is brilliant and reaches all the way down to the pool area.
It goes without saying that we will be rebooking for next year and would recommend this holiday to EVERYONE.
