HI Colin and Fransesca,

Thank you for the wonderful stay at your villa and for your hospitality. We very much enjoyed your place and the beautiful surroundings. It was great hanging out at the pool and sharing meals and conversation around the comfortable dining room table. It is a great location to take day trips from and have a warm comfortable place to come back to and relax. Some of our group never left...they preferred to take advantage of the pool and walks to the village.

We hope that we can visit again on our next trip to Spain.

Thanks again.

Lovely holiday

This is a very spacious villa and even nicer than the photos on the website - we were a party of 8 and had plenty of room. It's a lovely location and completely private. The villa has everything you need and very helpful owners. There is no air conditioning but there are fans and this was perfectly fine, even during a very hot week in July. I would highly recommend if you are looking for somewhere peacful and away from crowds of tourists.
Owner's Response: Dear Michael and Rosie,
We are so glad you enjoyed your week at Loma la Parra and especially that you ordered a home cooked paella to be delivered by our local chef.
When we built the house we used lots of insulation and double glazing so, as you say, it is relatively cool indoors even on very hot days-----and glorious in the winter with the wood burner in use !!
Thank you for your visit and for your review.
Best regards,
Colin and Francesca.

Perfect Peace

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 30, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
Our party consisted of two families with 5 children ranging in age from 3 - 13. Villa Loma La Parra was the perfect place for us as we wanted peace and quiet and 'real Spain' not 'tourist Spain'. We got exactly what we wanted.
The villa is set in a countryside dotted with olive trees. The only sound that we could hear on a regular basis was the sound of goat bells as the herder took them up the hill every day.
The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. There was a great big communal area for family gatherings although we were outside for every meal.
There are fans in every room which are sufficient but we may not go in such a hot time of the year again - the heat in July is pretty intense.
Colin and Francesca, the owners, were incredibly helpful from start to finish and it is this sort of attention to detail that makes a holiday really work.
The swimming pool was large enough for us to hold our own mini Olympics and do regular lengths.
The local town was a short drive away and was delightful - we did not hear a single British voice. The local shopkeepers were more than helpful and the church is worth a visit.
Swimming in the freshwater reservoirs in the mountains was the highlight of our stay.Utterly blissful!
The only slight criticism is that the fridge wasn't working properly however Colin and Francesca sent someone round to fix it very swiftly.
We wish we had gone at a time that co-incided with local festivals and/or a bullfight but all in all this is the perfect location for anyone wanting a peaceful break.
Owner's Response: Dear Andrew and Katherine,
Thank you for kindly taking the time to write such a thoughtful review.
We are so glad that your stay at Loma la Parra worked so well for you.
There is a Feria on somewhere all summer and the local ones at the village, Antequera and Malaga are all held in early August. The last in the season is at the coastal town of Fuengirola from October 6th, but there are other festivals in the spring and at Easter.
Incidentally, the newspapers reported that this summer has been the hottest for 50 years with consitently high daily temperatures with little respite in the night, so your experience was somewhat unusual even for Andalucia in July !!

Wonderful Loma La Parra

Loma La Parra exceeded our expectations on every front. We had a brilliant 2 weeks there during August - and are now missing it big time on our return to reality and work!!

After a long journey from the USA via Ireland, we were so pleased to arrive at a wonderful mountain venue that looked even better in reality than on the photographs. Ensuite bedrooms for all guests, living areas, wireless internet access, kitchen, outside dining area, the barbecue house, and the wonderful pool - all were just excellent. We had many long lazy days by the pool - and several great day trips to beautiful local villages and amazing cities. The owners took exemplary care of us - and were always available when we needed them. Which wasn't often - given that everything was even better than offered! The pool was pristine every morning - and must have been cleaned up even before we rose. Local restaurants were just as described by the owners, and we had a couple of really special meals in the local hotels they highlighted.

Oh and the surrounding countryside is just spectacular - with beautiful mountains and wonderful winding roads.

By teh way, the owners' directions fromt the airport where just perfect!

Thanks Loma La Parra - we loved being there and miss you big time! We'll be back...

John & family
Owner's Response: Dear John and Eileen,
We could not be more pleased that your holiday went well.
You did so well to leave the pool during an exceptionally hot summer to enjoy the sights of Seville and Granada, Malaga and Antequera.
Your enthusiasm was infectious and we thank you all for your visit.
Colin and Francesca.
