A beautiful cottage in a stunning location
We stayed at "La Abuela" for about 4 weeks in March-April 2018 and had a great time. Juan met us in the village centre and showed us around the house - as others have said he was a good host, he left a bottle of his own olive oil, some fresh bread from the shop and a bottle of excellent wine as a welcome present, and responded quickly if we needed some advice or help. You CAN drive a car up the lane to the house, but you need to be very awareof the width of your car and good on the clutch as it is steep and narrow - we drove up to unload the luggage but after that left the car in "Blas Infante" and walked to the house. The house is on multiple levels and there are several different patios/balconies to choose from, depending on time of day and the desire to be in or out of the sun! It is a peaceful sanctuary amidst stunning and dramatic scenery of the Serrania de Ronda, and Igualeja is a hillside Pueblo blanco at the very start of the Rio Genal. If you want a taste of real rural Andalusia, you could do no better - but learn a bit of Spanish before you arrive! The "shop" is 10 metres away, opens at all sorts of interesting times, sells all sorts of unexpected items, and the people there are a delight (even if you speak very little Spanish). There are several bars around the village serving tapas and beer/wine - take your pick. A great place for walking, wildlife, and if more adventurous, sailing on the coast (try Estepona), paragliding (try Algodonales) and on/off road cycling. Beautiful Ronda is only 25 mins away, and we also visited Granada, Sevilla and Cordoba, all of which are day trips.
Thanks very much for the comments about the house..is a pleasure for us to received you in our house
Hope to see you soon
Beautifully restored unique house in an amazing location
The owner kindly met us to take us to the property as we couldn't get the car through the narrow traditional streets. He gave us a bottle of his own olive oil and freshly baked bread. The house was fabulous and the location was amazing. We loved the village. We greatly enjoyed the festa which was on during our stay. On Saturday night the music went on from 10pm to 8am and children and grandmothers were dancing all night. We had a wonderful time - I'm sure the village is tranquil for the rest of the year but during our stay it was jumping!
Thanks for visit casa la abuela..
It is a plesure to received you in the house...hope next time you can be more time and enjoy the village and all around
A magical space to relax in a beautiful mountain landscape. A stunning and gentle place to unwind!
Juan and his partner are helpful and reliable hosts. We felt very secure in their care, when arranging and arriving for our holiday. The house is lovely, comfortable and spacious. The views from the many sitting areas are unbelievable and magical! The village is very friendly with a great little shop just a few metres from the house. There are also a couple of good tapas bars and a cafe (in the square) which are well worth visiting and good value. We had a wonderful holiday at Juan's house! Just go and enjoy it!
Thanks very much for your comments..it is a pleasure to received in my house
Excellentes vacances dans la maison familiale de Juan, à refaire!
Si vous cherchez l'Andalousie authentique et le charme et le calme des villages blancs espagnols, n'hésitez pas à louer cette maison. Nous y avons passé 3 semaines avec nos 3 enfants et pensons bien y revenir l'an prochain. La maison est très confortable avec une vue magnifique des terrasses. Il y a 3 terrasses, donc toujours une possibilité de trouver un petit coin d'ombre (l'endroit préféré de mon mari était sous les vignes). Très pratique aussi d'avoir deux salles de bain: une avec baignoire, l'autre avec douche, on évite les 'embouteillages'! La piscine est peut-être petite mais indispensable et permet de se rafraîchir en toute intimité, à l'abri des regards (aucun vis-à-vis). Il faut cependant la mériter: les petites rues étroites montent très fort (normal, on est dans un village de montagne ...), je le déconseillerais à des personnes à mobilité réduite.Bref, un excellent séjour chez Juan qui est un hôte charmant, très professionnel, toujours disponible en cas de besoin mais toujours discret.
Merci beaucoup pour votre visite, cela a été un plaisir de vous avoir comme invités ... nous espérons vous revoir l'année prochaine.
Very comfortable house in a small village
We had a wonderful stay in Casa la Abuela. It was everything we hoped for: A very comfortable house in a small, quiet village. Inside there is a nice (cool) seating area, a modern kitchen that has everything you need, 3 bedrooms with comfortable beds, and 2 bathrooms (1 with a shower and 1 with a bath). Plenty of fresh linen and towels (also for the pool) were provided. We couldn’t have asked for more! And as nice as the inside of the house is, it’s the outside that really makes this a great place to stay. Multiple areas where you can sit, both in the shade and in the sun and there is a fantastic pool. Absolutely wonderful! With temperatures around 35 degrees we we’re so happy we had the pool to cool down in. From the terrace/balcony you have a beautiful view of the mountains.
Just a few doors down there is a small shop where you can get fresh bread and some basics (e.g. water, beer, soft drinks, some fruit and vegetables, ice creams, toiletries). For more extensive grocery shopping we went to Ronda (about a 25 minute drive).
Juan, the owner, gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived, and whenever we contacted him with questions/requests during our stay, he helped us out very quickly. Also prior to our arrival and when we booked the accommodation he responded very quickly and was very helpful.
All in all a great house and we definitely recommend it!
