Guestbook comments from the owner

“Cortijo La Hoya was undoubtedly the loveliest house we have ever stayed in. The Courtyard with its orange trees and the scent of thyme and rosemary was very special…



Our children loved their accommodation with the mural of African desert and the privacy it offered them…... We are left in awe at the energy and vision it required to create such a lovely home.”

Magnifique !

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé une semaine en famille (grands et petits) à La Hoya et avons adoré le lieu, les paysages, l'espace, toute la propriété et la décoration de la maison ! Nous avons eu de plus un merveilleux temps andalou, ciel azur, soleil et chaleur. La piscine a eu beaucoup de succès ! Tout est fait pour le calme, le farniente ; en fait, il fallait un peu se faire violence pour visiter les alentours … Nous tenons également à remercier Inès pour son accueil et Paco pour l'entretien journalier.
Bref, un séjour idyllique dont nous garderons un très bon souvenir !

Ideal for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5
We rented La Hoya for a family gathering (ages 9mths to 80) and it couldn't have been more perfect. Booking a villa online you always worry its going to be a let down when you get there but this villa exceeded our expectations. The pictures don't really do it justice, the house was beautiful and the views stunning! It's a great set up as the rooms are all self contained off the courtyard so everyone has their own space. Paco's paella was delicious and would recommend Erica who comes to do manicures etc. I'd definitely recommend to friends. Thank Ines, Paco and Christopher!

Andalucian paradise - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5
A glorious home from home with all the modern comforts in a beautiful setting. The grounds are simply stunning and all rooms are clean, well maintained and decorated beautifully.

Ines and Paco looked after us so well. We didn't want for anything. Paco's paella is a must!

We were very sad to leave after out 2 weeks stay....but I'm already planning our return visit.

Un petit coin de Paradis !

  • 5 of 5
Un environnement exceptionnel ! Le même qualificatif s’applique à la vue depuis la piscine ou la terrasse. Un jardin de rêve et parfaitement entretenu. La maison offre de nombreux endroits soit pour se réunir entre amis (ou en famille) mais aussi pour s’isoler au calme. Toutes les pièces sont décorées avec beaucoup de goût et l’ameublement est confortable. Enfin, Ines qui se charge de l’accueil à l’arrivée est efficace et extrêmement sympathique. Nous y avons passé une dizaine de jours entre amis et toutes les visites que nous avions programmées ont été reportées à « une autre fois » tellement nous étions bien dans cette propriété. Dernier détail : une grande bibliothèque avec beaucoup de bons livres sauf peut être un pavé de 300 pages à propos de de la bataille de Waterloo. Cela mis à part, un endroit parfait !

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5
La Hoya is such a little paradise - having been there twice now I feel it is a very special place and I'm already thinking about when I will return.

We had a fantastic time there, all our friends were in awe how beautiful it is and it really worked well for our group (13 adults, 7 kids). The kids loved it, they played in the gardens all day long, we had long, lazy breakfasts and yummy barbecues in the evenings. We were so lucky with the weather, we were able to swim in the pool and sit outside and listen to the nightingales at night!

We were looked after very well by Ines, who arranged for an excellent yoga teacher and a manicurist to come, and Paco, who cooked a fabulous paella for us. We couldn't have wished for anything more.

The property itself is clearly a well-loved and treasured family home, you immediately get the feeling you're arriving at a home from home - my personal favourite feature is the beautiful courtyard with its citrus trees and fragrant jasmine. All rooms are clean and well maintained and decorated beautifully.

We left the property only once in our week there - to go to the pretty village of Gaucin, where we witnessed a traditional Easter procession - a very special treat in a perfect holiday!

Magical house, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5
We are still reeling after our stay at La Hoya and trying to find an excuse to get a group together so we can go again! It is the most wonderful house. You sense the magic as soon as you walk through the huge, fabulous front door and the feeling just gets better and better. We took a group of 12 family members and friends to La Hoya for a special birthday party - a colourful mix from Germany and Britain, from 4 to 75 years old, and they all loved it for different reasons. We arrived and left on different days, and although there were times when there were only 4-6 of us there, the house always felt warm and welcoming. In fact, we had previously researched a number of luxury houses in Gaucin, but this was the only one that really felt like a 'home'. The other reviews describe it all so perfectly, it's difficult to add anything new. Maybe the wonderful mix of fabrics and richly coloured rugs, the lovely tiered garden design with delicious herbs, figs, apples, quinces and lemons; the perfectly placed seats, benches and hammocks to catch the sun or shade; the wonderfully equipped kitchen (our hobby cooks were thrilled); the great book collection including tons of guide books and hiking trails; the wall paintings in the children's wing and the pool toys, the funny geckos hiding behind the light fittings on the terrace, the fact that the rooms all have their own 'front doors' opening onto the central courtyard so everyone can come and go without disturbing the others and the views of the sunset across the mountains towards Africa. And of course no review would be complete without mentioning Virginia, Paco and the amazing house manager Ines, who couldn't do enough to help us both before and during our stay. Thanks a million for the opportunity to share such a special house!

Cortijo La Hoya is set in the foothills below Gaucin, just off the Ronda-Jimena road. It sits in 30 acres of grounds and mature gardens and is surrounded by National Parkland.
