About Jon & Robyn Hughes

I retired from government employ in 2001 and we are both happily retired living in Aylesbury.

Jon & Robyn Hughes purchased this villa in 2002

Why Jon & Robyn Hughes chose Estepa Area

We wanted a property away from the cosmopolitan Spain and inland so we could experience Spain. We wanted a property that was easy to access from the airports and central to the main cities of Anadalucia.

What makes this villa unique

The village of Lora De Estepa is a thriving village with a restaurant and several bars that serve tapas at lunchtime and the evenings. There are two small grocery shops, a hardware store, a library, a fishmongers and other small shops.

Like staying in a five star hotel

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this place, we took our grandchildren with us for a holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pool was brilliant, the kids loved it, and where the property is completely walled in, you know the kids are safe at all times. We're hoping to go again later this year for an adults break with some friends.

WONDERFUL FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property with 4 adults and 4 children (age4-12). It had everything you could possibly need, and the pool was a perfect addition. Its a great base to explore the area, and visit the real Spain. The local shops and cafes are in walking distance and everyone was very welcoming (although you should be prepared with some basic spanish). We visited Saville, Granada, Cordoba and Antequera (and the flamingos) - and would recommend them all. Our highlight was a drive to El Chorro - a hidden treat in only a short distance away. The owner was incredibly helpful and responded to all queries very quickly - Carlos and Maria met us at the villa and were very friendly. I would recommend this villa without any hesitation.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa, in a fabulous location which gave us a fabulous holiday.

We spent the first week with our immediate family (aged 28 to 32) and second week with the 'older' family and friends. The villa suited all ages and was a pleasure to stay in.

The property was clean and well equipped, with Martin and Claire, the represenatives, on hand if we needed anything.

Lots of interesting places to visit and the village was lovely. Even though they did not speak English, they did understand pointing! Manolo, the bar owner was really nice and made us most welcome.

Only regret was leaving the lovely warm weather!!

A Delightful Surprise

  • 5 of 5

Rarely does a holiday property exceed one's expectations but this villa does so in spades.

We had never been to Spain before and were frankly rather sceptical as our perception of 'Spanish Holidays' was rather prejudiced by the 'costa' image.

This house is a real delight. It is spacious, light and airy and above all cool! It is superbly maintained, very well equiped and ideally situated. The excellent roads make Seville, Granada and Cordoba easily accessible and the house is only an hour and fifteen minutes from Malalaga airport.

Having said this the house, pool and immediate surroundings make it ideal for those who really don't feel the need to explore.

Martin and Claire, the caretakers, who live nearby, are a real asset and are helpful way beyond the call of duty. (when we had a minor medical emergency they could not do enough for us).

Suffice it to say that we fully intend to return. A delightful holiday.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at this villa. We have been renting villas for many years and this is one of (if not) the best. We particularly liked the villa layout inside and out, the general facilities, excellent welcome pack and the planting around the large pool - many other villas are quite sterile in this respect. The villa was very private being walled and surrounded by lovely countryside - hills, olive groves etc. The proximity to the village was fantastic- we spent many evenings enjoying a beer and tapas at the local bar and could walk back to the villa! - The local people were very welcoming and helpful - spanish immersion which we love! The position of the villa with respect to Seville / Malaga/Ronda/Antequera,etc was great with the furthest being an hour and we took full advantage of this with many daily trips - these included must see 'El Torcal' and 'El Chorro'. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone.

A spacious villa perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in the Spanish sunshine with our 2 young children (2 yrs & 4 yrs), my parents and my brother and his partner. Although there were 8 of us sharing the villa, there was plenty of room both inside and outside. We all appreciated having our own bathroom to use and the outside shower and toilet close to the swimming pool prevented us all from walking through the villa with wet feet! The pool itself was ideal with young children as they enjoyed the stepped area and shallower end.

The villa feels very secluded and it was nice not having to worry about being overlooked. We enjoyed meals on the terrace and the gas BBQ was fabulous. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of crockery, utensils etc.

Although we used our own beach towels round the pool, plenty of towels were supplied for use within the villa which was appreciated. Even in May, some days were very hot but the villa always remained cool inside and we didn't have to use the fans provided.

We flew into Malaga Airport and found the journey to the villa very straightforward. Lora de Estepa is a lovely quiet Spanish village but it's only 5 minutes from the main Seville-Malaga road and therefore is well connected.

The villa is situated on a quiet country road overlooking mountains and olive groves. It is on the outskirts of a village and is a gentle 5 minute stroll to the local supermarkets, bars, shops etc. There is a local restaurant that us a 10 minute stroll through the village. The village is situated off the A92 motorway and is an hour's drive from Malaga, Seville, Granada, Ronda and Cordoba. The nearest town is Estepa where there is a large supermarket whilst Antequera is a 20 minute drive.

You will be able to sit and relax around the pool or under the covered terraces or, for the more energetic, there are plenty of local walks to the mountains. If you wish to do some cooking there is a full size kitchen as well as a large built in gas and charcoal BBQ. There is a Sky satellite service which provides the normal terrestrial channels as in the UK as well as some of the free view channels.

Golf: The nearest course is at Antequera - a 25 minute drive.
