Magical house, fabulous location

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!

Une superbe villa

Nous étions 16 adultes et nous garderons un merveilleux souvenirs de fêtes endiablées dans cette villa merveilleuse. De l'espace pour tous, une grande cuisine aménagée, un patio gigantesque, une piscine à débordement avec une vue effectivement imprenable, des hamacs pour se prélasser partout, et un temps et des températures autour de 28 °C digne de l'Andalousie en octobre.

What a wonderful house!

The photos do not do La Hoya justice; it really is the most beautiful house and the gardens are lovely. We were quite a large party and one of the best things was having a choice of places to eat. Large table in the courtyard was perfect for lunch and then in the evening we ate on a vine covered terrace by the barbecue, which we used most evenings. There is yet another terrace where we loved having evening drinks and watching the sun sink down below the hills. There is tons of space everywhere with hammocks, daybeds so it is always possible to find somewhere quiet to disappear and recuperate. The swimming pool is to die for and the views take your breath away. It was a restful, stimulating and lovely holiday.

Paradise in Spain

La Hoya has everything you could wish for a relaxing break. As a party of eleven, it was large enough to lose yourself in the grounds, yet comfortable enough to have a meal together. The staff and accommodation are first class and Ines was at the end of a phone if we needed advice. The pool and grounds are kept extremely well by Paco, who was very helpful. With eight comfortable bedrooms it was spacious and beautifully decorated in traditional Spanish design. Gibraltar is a good day trip if you don't use this airport, and the local villages are fifteen minutes away. Gaucin has some English speaking people there, if you don't fancy brushing up on your Spanish! The views from the villa are nothing short of spectacular. In the mornings you can watch the eagles from the brilliant swimming pool swooping around the mountains, and in the evenings you can watch the lizards catching moths and flies while having a cold beer on the terrace after a long day in the sun.The children were catered for very well with the pool and activities provided. Overall an opportunity not to be missed and not something you will forget. I would strongly recommend this place, and hope to go back in the foreseeable future.

Cannot recommend enough

It was my third stay at La Hoya this summer – it's such a treat to come back to this house and each time seems to surpass in idyl!
The gardens get more glorious and the cosiness and charm of this elegantly situated and laid out house grows with every visit.
This is a space ideal for families or friends, young or old.

The owners' exceptional taste and joie de vivre are evident in every corner of the property. Perfectly situated on top of a hill with majestic views across the Spanish countryside and coast in the distance, the house is an ideal setting for any holiday. With plenty of magnificent outside areas – from the pool area, to the various dining areas and the wonderfully characteristic courtyard – you are spoilt for choice for an idyllic spot in the sun or shade. The bedrooms are spacious and breezy, each finished uniquely with local artisanal touches. The kitchen is a dream – ideal for cooking lazy lunches or hearty spanish dinners – plenty of space for even the biggest of paella pans! (Don't miss to ask Paco, the local gardener, to come and cook his traditional paella for you one evening!)

I cannot recommend this house enough. It is full of tranquil charm, beauty and character, a finely balanced dream of a holiday home…

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.
