Looked for a place for the night passing by and were lucky to find this place. Very nice apartment fully equipped. Remember to bring food to cock in the apartment since there are no restaurant. Lovely pool and nice area among the mountains. Warm and helpful welcome. Can gladly recommend this place.
Perfect relaxation spot! Spent 2 weeks here in July and loved every second of it. Apartments have everything you need and are very clean, and the pool is perfect. The surrounding area is stunning. I got to see proper Spanish towns, seaside and parks, after having previously just spent time in more touristy areas. Would thoroughly recommend staying here.
Heidi and Nick made us so welcome and the views are just to die for its comfortable accommodation and they were there with helpful advice when needed. The location is perfect to relax and chill .IE. swimming pool and table tennis too, yet all within a few minutes drive of the motorway system and less than ten minutes from the town of Velez Rubio. perhaps were a little biased because were buying a property there but its very relaxed there. It has all you would need to unwind from life
We stayed here in September, as we were looking to buy a new home in this area. So this gave us a good insight to the Velez area. We found it to be a really beautiful area with stunning views, and have found a great house there! Cortijo Estrella was a great place to stay, we just hired a car from the airport and an hour and a half later were settling in to a relaxing holiday/viewing trip.. The self catering cottage was very nice with lovely views, and fully equipped with a hob,microwave and fridge,and TV..The owners Heidi and Nick had kindly left us some food items,,which is a great idea until you can get to the local supermarket. We also had use of the swimming pool and sun loungers which was lovely to sit out and bask in the warming sun.There is also a bar on the premises where you can have a tipple or two ! A short drive away is the lovely authentic town of Velez Rubio, which has shops,restaurants and tapas bars, a lovely plaza near the church, also a convent and a museum Also the pretty town of Velez Blanco with its historical castle is very close at hand too. We would highly recommend this area and Cortijo La Estrella to anyone looking to holiday in the real Spain, and Heidi and Nick were great hosts, thanks again. Julie and Tom…
Spent a relaxing 8 days here in the summer and fell in love with the Spanish mountains. The apartments are fantastic - simple, clean, comfortable and perfect for a rural retreat. Heidi and Nick took great care of us including booking one of the best Sunday lunches ever at the nearby Casa Joya. We particularly enjoyed it in July when it was quiet and mainly couples. August got a little busier but we still had a fantastic time and can't wait to go back.
