Quiet, stunning and amazing holiday villas just don't come better than this!
Posting this review a bit later than anticipated due to a knee op, so apologies for that.
I booked this villa on the back of other reviews here and on the villa's own web site to go along with my wife's Christmas present of a long dreamed of visit to the Alhambra & Gereralife. My first enquiry to the availability was replied to within an hour and all subsequent correspondence with Anna was equally impressively handled.
I doubt if I had searched for other villas in the area for weeks that I would have come across a better one than Casa de la Cuesta.
It really is, as others have said, isolated and blissfully quiet with jaw dropping views across the valley.
The villa has three rooms with the kitchen cum dining area cum lounge in the middle and the two en suite bedrooms (one twin & one double) either side. Access to all three is via the front porch/patio area. It's a layout that I haven't come across before but works well. Both bedrooms have separate small outside seating areas too.
All rooms were spotlessly clean and well presented. There was also a very generous welcome pack.
The pool is accessed across the driveway (you'll need footwear!) and is shared with the family house, though they all respect your privacy while you're there - with the possible exception of the dogs! While sitting by the pool in the evening watching the changing colours and shadows over the valley as the sun goes down with a large G&T is something that will stay with me for a long, long time.
There is an excellent guide to the local area on the dining table with helpful recommendations from other visitors. Well worth reading on your first day.
I could go on and on with superlatives about Casa de la Cuesta, so just read this along with the other rave reviews and you'll get the jist!
I will just end by thanking Anna, Andy, the family and the dogs for a truly memorable stay. Far too short, but we will be back!

“Perfect tranquil holiday”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Casa La Cuesta is a beautiful 3 room Spanish cottage in the hills close to the small village of Santa Cruz Del Comercio. As I write this at 9am, I am sitting on the terrace of the cottage looking out on a stunning view of rolling hills backed by the Sierra Nevada mountains (see photo). The view is spectacular and at the same time hugely peaceful.

People rent this property for a range of reasons. For the walkers, I understand there are easy and challenging walks. For those who ski during the winter, or cycle mountain terrain during the summer, this location is perhaps an hours drive from the slopes of the Sierra Nevada (up the winding road shown, and described as fantastic, on Top Gears' Spanish road trip). For us, who are here for a peaceful summer vacation, it is the perfect balance of tranquility, weather, facilities and environment.

The property is owned by Andy and Anna, who live in the house next door. Between the two buildings is the pool. You can choose how far you wish to immerse yourself in the life here, Andy and Anna are superbly sensitive to those renting their property. They will remain invisible except to be be available if you need anything, all the way through taking you under their wing and helping you truly experience the amazing local community. And the community is amazing, the simple life, the sense of family, the community spirit all come together here. On our first day we watched the teenagers of the town have a competition, who could create the most interesting go-cart, and present it to a panel of village elders. I understand the subsequent party went on until 5am, although we were tucked up in bed long before that (being far enough out of the village to not be disturbed by it at all). In typical Spanish fashion, the village children were all there taking part, and they outlasted us!

I am not a big fan of beaches, but the occasional visit can be nice, in which case it's a 40 minute drive. This part of the coast of Spain is one of endless white sandy beaches for miles and miles, the nearest main beach town is Torre Del Mar, just along from Malaga.

10 minutes drive away is the small town of Alhama De Granada. We were here last Christmas, nice and toasty in the cottage with the log burner going and 6 degrees in the shade outside, but for Christmas lunch we were in the town square of Alhama having tapas for lunch and enjoying the 25 degrees in the sun.

Further afield is the main town of Granada, with it history and culture (as well as the famous Alhambra Palace). We are looking forward to spending an evening there sitting in one of the squares watching the Flamenco street dancers.

We discovered Casa La Cuesta two years ago, this is our third trip, and in every way it is superb. I would recommend it without reservation. I understand Anna is making us an authentic Spanish Paella, and we are invited. I can't wait!

“Ideal relaxing holiday rental”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband, our 11 year old son and I spent 2 weeks at Casa de la Cuesta and we loved it. The house is full equipped, amazing views and a really nice swimming pool. Anna and Andy were lovely and you have to try their homemade paella - gorgeous!
We were looking for a private house and pool to really chill out and that's exactly what we got. I would definately recommend it.
It's a beautiful setting on a side of a mountain, very private, but you're only 15 minutes to a lovely village and about 45 minutes to Granada.
