Fabulous view. Helpful owner. Comfortable, well equipped casita. Relaxing garden. Surrounding area very scenic.
Wonderful casita in the mountains!
Thank you Alan for the week at Narnia. We enjoyed the beautiful view and daily visits from Django. The hot tub was a perfect place to end each day! The location is remote and offered a step up from camping. If you are looking for fast internet speeds or lots of action then this is not for you! But if you are looking for tranquility and a place to get away from it all, Narnia will deliver!
A great casita with a lovely terrace and friendly and helpful owners. The surrounding area, at this time of year, was full of wild flowers, butterflies and bird life. The nightingales singing in the garden were wonderful and we spotted a lot of typical mountain birds nearby. Plenty of scope for rambling and picnics. Just one small suggestion, we would have appreciated a small book with guidance re, local shops (location and opening times), restaurants, plus details of where to wash clothes etc.
Second Visit - Wonderful
Our second stay at this lovely casita. Very comfortable and easy going, well equipped and so warm and cozy with the log burner. Logs provided by Alan plus lots of ideas on walking and the area. Lovely walk into town theough fields just waking up after Winter, a real Spanish feel, friendly people, great weekly market. Walking here is a delight. We walked for miles on the old railway line, great views, spring flowers, not many people - perfect. The whole area has so much to offer or you can just relax on the terrace and enjoy the views, birds, eagles too. Thank you Lyn and Alan, we will be back!

We look forward to seeing you again.

A perfect escape
Our stay was everything we hoped it would be - a peaceful getaway in the mountains and a taste of rural Spain.
The Casita was perfect and had everything we needed. We both loved relaxing on the big, sunny terrace, enjoying the stunning views of the mountains.
Alan and Lynn were friendly and helpful from our initial enquiry to leaving. I can't recommend this place enough.
Charming casita in the woods
We loved our week in the casita. The views are amazing, the countryside is largely farmland in between the mountains. Everything is provided for a peaceful holiday in the woods with the sounds of wildlife including the bells from the goat herd. The house is very well equipped, comfortable and tastefully furnished.
We found the locals in Zafarraya very friendly and helpful (bit of Spanish useful here!) So few tourists visit we couldn't even buy a post card, and we were asked if we had just moved in! We had some amazing day trips out - particularly to the embalse de Bermejales - a beautiful lake where you can swim with hardly anyone around (with some friendly fish!)
Don't be put off by the fact there are few reviews - the visitors book is packed with glowing reviews in the house. Thanks Alan!
