“Lovely quiet country retreat with friendly hosts who speak English (and Dutch)”
Reviewed 23 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We had a wonderful stay in the Casa Verde cottage. We had a fabulous time and were active all the time with cycling and climbing – your bikes were really good for us to get to the climbing crags at Marin and Salinas, and we walked to our local Sax crag a few times too. The weather was great although quite cold and Hank looked after us really well.
There are 3 well known climbing crags within a few miles of this finca, (one of them is within walking distance) and the countryside is beautiful. Sax town is interesting and the castle is fantastic.

Thank you so much for lending us the bikes, and for letting our friends stay – we had a lovely party at New Year with singing, guitar and accordion music and Hank came to visit us at midnight also.

We met some other climbers at Marin and gave them your details as they were looking for somewhere to stay and we will also recommend your houses to other friends if they are coming to the area.

We were there at the start of an unusually cold period (January 2017) and sometimes we were a bit cold until we got the fire going and also we could hire a calor gas fire for extra warmth.

we had the most enjoyable few days prior to a family wedding in the region - comfortable , well kitted out accommodation, lovely pool with stunning backdrop, all mod cons and very welcoming, non-obtrusive but friendly hosts- Dutch, multi lingual, v.helpful....Spanish sun also helped and Sax, Villena, Boccarient all have little known charms.

Just back from 14 relaxing and great days at El Capricho. We stayed in the apartment Casa Azul, which was the perfect accommodation for us – clean, spacious and comfortable!

We have to highlight the fantastic swimming pool. A big thanks to Hank - we woke up every day to a perfect pool – clean and sparkling!

If you like to walk, ride mtb or run, the surroundings and mountains offers plenty of good trails and routes. We used the mountains daily for mtb and trail running.

The owners Renata and Dennis are lovely and very helpful people. They made us feel very welcome during our stay and made our stay even more pleasant. They are open and social persons, but respect your privacy. Basically the perfect hosts!

El Capricho is the perfect place if you need to get away from the more explorative areas in the region. It is approx. 10 min drive to the nearest town Sax, where you can find supermarkets, bakery, butcher, restaurants and tapas bars. We visit a couple of restaurants in Sax and can warmly recommend La Senda and Vicente.

We really enjoyed our stay at El Capricho!

We booked Casa Verde for 2 nights to have a break away from the hustle and bustle of the Spanish coast and the place completely lived up to and exceeded our expectations. Fantastic hosts in Renata and Dennis and they were genuinely focused in making our stay perfect.

El Capricho is exactly as described in the property information. The swimming pool, gardens and facilities were brilliant. The atmosphere was extremely friendly and relaxed but also well organised and efficient. The honesty bar is a nice idea and worked well. As was the option to order fresh bread via Dennis from the local village each morning.

Casa Verde was very nicely kitted out and spotlessly clean.
The kitchen had everything we needed, (microwave, fridge freezer and a cooker) and in the lounge area there was a TV and DVD player and comfy chairs. We also really appreciated the personal touches in the pictures and ornaments in the property - it added to making it feel more homely.

We particularly liked the very high ceilings in the rooms which helped keep the property much cooler.

Even though we only stayed for 2 nights I felt so much more relaxed for the experience. It was basically a holiday from our holiday!

I also think it would be very enjoyable to visit outside of the summer as there was some fantastic scenery around the property which would be fun to explore.

When we are next back in that area of Spain to visit family we will definitely plan a few days at El Capricho to catch up with Renata, Dennis and Hank again as they are such lovely people and are doing an amazing job with this business.
