Wonderful casita in rural Andalusia.
The Casita was everything we hoped it would be, set off the road amongst olive groves, very peaceful and tranquil. It is about 15-20 minutes drive from Algarinejo where there are bars and restaurants, including an award winning restaurant (Piolas) serving high end cuisine at reasonable prices. We loved sitting on the terrace and listening to the silence except for occasional crowing of a cock and dogs barking, and a very occasional vehicle passing on the road behind.
The Casita was well stocked with shower gel, soap and toothpaste and a welcome pack of bread, butter, marmalade, milk (UHT) eggs, a bottle of wine and some beer. There were essentials for self-catering such as olive oil, condiments and things like cling film and tin foil. There were also plastic containers with lids for storing leftovers etc. – not something we have often found in this type of accommodation. There is no oven, but we used the gas barbeque and the stove and did not miss it.
Linen and towels were changed after the first week and any queries were answered by Sue, Mark and Karen. Mark came to clean the pool on the middle Saturday of our stay. Sue was very helpful with recommendations for things to do and booked a table at Restaurante Piolas for us.
We do not think we could fault the accommodation, location or anything else about this property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
As good as it looks and sounds. Ideal for getting away from the busyness of life, and relaxing in the pool with an amazing view.
Peace and tranquility
Probably the best accommodation we have ever rented with an excellent pool. The Casita was equipped with everything you could want and was spotlessly clean.
Beautiful villa, gorgeous pool and amazing views.
Would thoroughly recommend. Peaceful, quiet and everything we wanted and more.
A Romantic Getaway in Peaceful Paradise!
After arriving in Malaga airport, we hired a car from the airport and began our journey to the paradise that awaited us!
The journey took us around an hour and 15 minutes in total. Very straight and easy road to Loja and then a narrower but perfectly simple ascent up into the beautiful, olive tree laiden mountains.
We arrived at the casita to the welcoming sound of peace of tranquility.
The casita itself ticked both boxes; traditional but with all the modcons; airconditioning, television, cooking facilities etc. It was clean, welcoming and had everything we needed.
The private pool area was simply idyllic! The view was captivating; looking out across the mountains of olive trees was just perfect. The pool was clean, cool and refreshing and just what we needed after a day of exploring!
Surrounding the casita are a number of walks, which are clearly signposted. In the evenings, we loved to walk and watch the sunset over the mountains.
We took the car and ventured to some nearby towns and villages; all of which were beautifully unspoilt and captured Spain at its finest. Iznajar was one of favorites; the lakes, the views (again!) and the gorgeously quaint cafe sat at the top of the mountain side village!
As well as the beautiful villages that are sunken into the valleys or sat atop mountains, it was brilliant to be able to explore nearby cities! Grenada was only an hours drive away where we got to explore the captivating Al Hambra! An absolute must see!! We also got a train from nearby town Antequera to explore Seville!
If you're looking for tranquility, stunning views and close proximity to explore quintessential Spain then I couldn't recommend this place enough!
Thank you so much to Sue for making us feel so welcome.
We certainly will be returning!
fab stay, cottage and views
the cottage is located between the olive fields with a great view over the hills near the village of algarinejo. The well furnished cottage is built under the fabulous swimmingpool. The view from the pool and the cottage is great. The location is very central to explore an not so touristic part of andalusia, nice villages and great natural parcs. The communication with Karen, the owner, and Sue the housekeeper is quick and attentive. We hope to return some day!
Las Golondrinas is set in a rural, hillside location with amazing views of mountains and surrounding olive groves. There are walking tracks nearby to enjoy. A car is essential and within approx 15-20 mins drive you can be in quaint villages, steeped in Moorish history and beauty. Within an hours drive you can be in the city of Granada, and a little further be on the coast . It is ideally located for peace and relaxation and also a great base for sightseeing and getting out and about to enjoy the delights of Andalusia.
