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.

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...

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...

Just returned from a week's stay in this beautiful, tranquil location and feel fully restored. The apartments were attractive and comfortable, and spotlessly clean, and the owners couldn't have done more to help make our stay more pleasant. We explored the lovely views with walks around the area, whilst our children took full advantage of the good sized pool and...

We found this place to be just what was advertised and exactly what we needed. Just close enough to the beach to be a great day out and far enough into the back country to ensure you get peace and often a wonderful breeze. The pool is a great relief in the heat of the day. Definitely going again.

We cannot praise La Estrella enough! We stayed for 2.5 weeks with our two kids - 7 and 11 yrs, and had a fantastic time. Our apartment was immaculately clean and provided everything that we needed for our stay, including a supply of beautifully laundered towels. There was ample space, with 2 double bedrooms, a lounge / dining room, a...

A welcome pack was available on our arrival. The apartment was split level (mezzanine). The description on the web site led me to believe there were views to be seen from the Apt. This was not the case as there was nothing at all visible from the lounge just 4 walls which made it quite dark. A view was available...
