Shirley gave us a warm welcome and it was great to have fruit, milk etc waiting for us on arrival. Cottage has lots of character, great views and feels very much away from it all. Really clean, peaceful and quiet and haven't slept so well in ages.
We were a little unlucky with the weather the first few days and the cottage was a bit nippy, so come prepared for all weather.
beautiful quiet cottage
Perfect place to stay while visiting southern Spain. We made this our home base and took day trips from there. Love the town of Casares lots of good restaurants and walking trails.
Shirley was a wonderful host helping us when ever we had a questions, her terrace garden we stunning .
Tranquil with easy access to Casares
Wonderful helpful hostess. Peacefull location. Clean and tidy. Pleasant terrace and pool. Beware lots of sloping paths and steps.
We've discovered a little gem of a place!
What a find! We spent a week at Casa Ceramica in July 2017 - myself, husband and three sons (aged 7, 14 and 16). The cottage, although cosy, was roomy enough for all five of us (one double, one twin and one single room). We were able to eat in the kitchen (when it was too windy) or down on the terrace. Shirley was a fabulous host and was really helpful with things to do and see in the area and we loved hearing about her life in Spain. Shirley's garden is magical and I could have spent hours exploring it. The pool is on the small side but lovely and perfectly big enough to cool off in with a big enough area around it and sun beds for the whole family to lounge around. The cottage is well equipped and in good condition - there is washing machine and an orange squeezer so we had delicious fresh orange juice every morning for breakfast. The highlight, though, was sitting/dining/drinking on the terrace with the most fabulous view down a wild valley to the coast, over the Mediterranean and to Africa - honestly the best views I've ever had from a holiday house - and watching a family of Griffin Vultures (with binoculars thoughtfully provided with the house) nest on the cliff opposite was very special and had the boys fascinated! The location is ideal - the village can be got to on foot in less than ten minutes (a good choice of bars & restaurants, as well as a small supermarket & pharmacy), and one can also access many walking trails directly from the cottage. The coast is a short drive away for those who wish for a bit of an urban fix, and equally the beautiful Andalusian hinterland and the Pueblos Blancos are just a short drive away too. I would highly recommend this holiday let. It wouldn't be suitable for small children (too many drops and little winding paths). Being slightly elevated and away from the coast which means that in very hot weather this location is slightly cooler and you tend to get a good breeze coming up from the coast. A haven of peace and quiet but not too far from the action either.
peaceful, lovely cottage and beautiful gardens
A great place for a summer visit to relax and enjoy the small pool and watch to vultures gliding in the thermals. Walking distance of Casares and only 15 minutes to the coast. In the cooler months the walking looks good.
The bathrooms are a little tired but functional.
We had a very restful week and enjoyed lovely food in the casares restaurants
Very comfortable, superb location. Fantastic views
We were met by very pleasant owner who had left a very generous amount of food for us. Two adults and three pretty much grown up teenagers were very comfortable. Very clean, tasteful and new furnishings. A genuine ten minute walk to the very pretty town. twenty minute drive to beach and supermarkets. An hour to Malaga a bit more to the stunning town of Ronda. Best bit by far is the location perched on the edge of a hill we spent hours watching the vultures soar in front of us as they fed their chicks visible on on precarious nests.. Gardens are lovely. Our best Spanish villa so far.
The cottage is a few minutes walk from the picturesque white village of Casares, the most photographed of Andalucia, with it's labyrinthine lanes and streets distinctive of it's Moorish heritage. The many local restaurants and tapas bars enhance the real Spanish experience.
Take a stroll to the Moorish castle which over looks the village. Casares is an excellent base from which to explore Andalucia placed between the mountainous limestone range of Serranía de Ronda, the Straits of Gibralter and the coast offering a diversity of delightful landscapes, untouched nature and many local activities such as horse back riding, golf, bird watching, local walks and spanish cultural events and markets nearby.
