We enjoyed our stay on the farm. The breakfast was great to start the day. The pool was refreshing after a busy tourist day just relaxing. The only thing that lack with the accommodation was a fridge in the room.

Wonderful experience as always. The staff were absolutely delightful and the service of the highest quality. Gooding's Grove could not be in a more convenient location as it is central to virtually everywhere you could want to go to. the rooms were spacious and comfortable, and totally spotless.

It was an experience that we never will forget. What a nice and warm people. The owner can tell you everything about the hotspots and where you have to go and how to get there. The accommodation is wonderful and very pretty and overwhelming surroundings. Eye for detail and quality. You have to go and see for yourself.

The Management at Gooding's Grove went out of their way to accommodate me and my family. We stayed in the beautiful self catering Villa and experienced exceptional service throughout our stay. This was our second visit to the beautiful olive farm and we will certainly be coming back.

A lovely property situated in a working olive grove. There is an air of shabby chic with slightly more shabby than chic. A few maintenance tasks need tackling. They kindly moved us to one of the west wing rooms which was much appreciated.
