Guestbook comments from the manager
We decided to enjoy 10 days of November in the south of Spain, to be able to still see some sunshine in 2012. The weather was very nice. The house was equipped with everything you needed. The bathroom was okay. Another advantage was the quietness around the house. A perfect place to relax. Also it's location (close to Alhambra, Malaga, Cordaba) is easy for day trips. At last, the help of Mike was really good. Mike doesn't disturb your privacy at all, but If you need anything he is there to help you.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to welcome Hans and Patrick to our cortijo. They certainly made the most of their two week holiday and visited many of the sights and attractions that are within easy driving distance for example, Cordoba, Granada and the Alhambra, Ronda, Seville, Málaga, El Chorro and the lakes etc. etc. We always look forward to seeing our friends again and have many return visits.

OLD ANDALUCIA

  • 5 of 5
Cortijo Canasto is a place among trees where it is possible to disarrange of the speed of the world. It is a nice traditional spanish house restored with success. It has a beautiful private swimming pool, and a small terrace where to contemplate the sunset. To accompany the stay get a Robert Graves's book.

WONDERFUL PLACE, FABULOUS HOLIDAY....

  • 5 of 5
I can't recommend the cottage highly enough - it was even lovelier than it appeared in the photos. The owner, Mike, provided lots of helpful information in advance, and was extremely obliging throughout our stay. He clearly takes pride in taking care of the property and making sure that people enjoy their stay. His kind, friendly and professional approach was very reassuring. The property was spotlessly clean, well equipped, thoughtfully presented, and nice and spacious for two. We found everything we needed within the property and were able to cook meals in the kitchen and enjoy them on the roof terrace overlooking the surrounding olive groves. The very well maintained private pool and sunloungers were perfect when we wanted to just relax, read, swim and enjoy the sunshine. As my partner and I both have busy jobs in the city, we were quite happy to wind down by pottering around the cottage and the pool on many days, enjoying the peace and quiet, but venturing into the local area, we found an idyllic beach by the lake at Iznajar and we also visited the town of Antequera and the El Torcal nature reserve. We found the locals at the local villages of La Atalaya and Villanueva de Algaidas to be very friendly and welcoming. I would happily stay at the cottage again and would certainly recommend it if you are looking for a lovely place to stay, relaxation, peace and quiet, and an ideal base from which to explore the lovely Andalucian countryside.

A GREAT LITTLE HIDDEN GEM.

  • 5 of 5
After a very busy year professionally we were looking for somewhere quiet with all of the amenities that we required. Cortijo Canesto fitted the bill entirely. Extremely peaceful and quiet with our own pool and glorious weather, it was the place to be at the beginning of August 2013. Familiar with the area we were happy to just relax and walk into the village of an evening for a quiet drink and surprisingly, some superb Tapas and food. The locals were very welcoming and collecting the bread from the local bakery was a real treat. e had time to do some local exploring and a days visit to the Lakes is well worth it. Mike also arranged a game of golf for me at Antequerra golf which was a great day out. The cottage is as per the photographs and the description is absolutely spot on. A great choice for a quiet escape. Many thanks. Paul and Janet, Plymouth, UK.

10 DAYS IN THE RAIN OF SPAIN...

  • 5 of 5
Well, it wasn't the nice sunny weather we expected in Andalusia in Spring, but - still - we had a great time staying with Mike at Cortijo Canasto. The cottage was as described, cosy (but a bit cold), well equipped and clean. Although the cottage is situated more or less in the middle of nowhere it's a great location if you are up to some day trips to cities like Granada, Gibraltar, Cordoba, Malaga and Sevilla. That and the surrounding nature (olive groves and hiking spots such as El Torcal near Antequera) made our stay a great experience. And for Mike: he's a very kind and helpful guy if you need anything but still very unobstrusive (almost invisible) if you don't need anything. If there was a guarantee that the weather will be better, we will definitely come back again.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, I can't guarantee or forecast the weather but I can guarantee that I will do everything I can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Having said that, the holiday in question was particularly early in the year but nevertheless there is so much to do and see within easy driving distance that you can always find something in the dry and warm.

PERFECT LITTLE COTTAGE FOR TWO!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at The Canasto for 1 week in the middle of October, Mike the owner greeted us on arrival and showed us around the cottage, which was nicely decorated, clean & tidy. The pool area was very secluded and ideal for two people although we did not use it much as we were out & about every day. There is a lovely roof terrace with tables, chairs sunshade & barbecue, where we liked to have a drink and read in the late afternoon where we could catch the last of the sun before it went down. The location of the cottage is about 1 hour's drive from most attractions & towns, we visited Rhonda, Mijas, the lakes, Cordoba, El Chorro, Antequerra etc and we even had a day at the beach.
We went into Algaidas most nights, and our favourite tapas bar was Beatas, where we tried out our very basic Spanish, the waiter was very helpful with our pronunciation and the tapas were great and cheap.
It was our 30th Wedding Anniversary whilst we were there and Mike bought us a bottle of champagne to celebrate, and he also provided milk and other beverages as a welcome pack which was a really nice little extra and not expected. We really enjoyed our stay here, the cottage is beautiful and Mike is a really nice genuine guy who will help you with anything if he can.
You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: I really can't add much to what has been said. Colleen and Tony made the most of visiting many places of interest, which as they have said are all within easy driving distance. The weather was very kind to them whilst they were here, with temperatures reaching around 25 deg.c. Not bad for October!
There are two bars in La Atalaya, within easy walking distance, that serve excellent food. Many more can be found in Algaidas, which is only a couple of kilometers away.
I am sure that Collen and Tony will remember their 30th wedding anniversary and Cortijo Canasto fondly.
