“Wonderful, peaceful and amazing!!”
Reviewed 18 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed for a week in this beautiful villa. The villa was very well equipped. The pool was lovely. The view was stunning and it was very peaceful and relaxing. The owners came to check we were okay which was appreciated. The farm animals were beautiful. It is a short drive to the local shops and the shop owners were very friendly. The photos do not show the additional outside kitchen area which has oven, sink and extra fridge. Book this villa now, We will be back next year. Thank you.

“A little piece of heaven.”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

What a magical place to stay. Perched on the side of a mountain, listening to the tinkle of bells as goats and sheep are herded up the mountain by old men with faces weathered by the sun.

Villa was superbly equipped with everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable and homely.

Becky and Davide were splendid hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them.

Lots of pretty little villages nearby and places to visit if you can tear yourself away from the villa. We loved it!

“Idyllic country retreat”
Reviewed 10 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The food provided on our arrival was a bonus, particularly the oranges, avocados and local olive oil. There is lots of internal and external space and the owner was happy for me to see the animals on their farm below. Granada was less than an hour away, and the coast even less, but what we enjoyed the most were the walks in the National Park and other local areas. Even in December the area has a lot to offer. The owners were helpful and friendly and waking up to the noise of the goats wandering the hills was a real pleasure. We will be back.

“Fantastic holiday”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The villa was perfect for a relaxing by the pool holiday, it was extremely well equipped, cupboards and fridge were stocked with all the essentials and the welcome package was a lovely and much appreciated addition. The owners were lovely and the fresh produce from the farm really added to our stay. The solar heated pool was enjoyed by us all and the weather was perfect. The setting and views from the villa and pool area are amazing and there are a number of places/towns to visit and explore, if you do leave the pool. The villa overlooks the national park which is worth a visit but is all unpaved roads so a little bumpy in a small hire car. There are lots of places to eat out, we went to the camping bar and Hotel Vinuela at lake Vinuela, a beautiful spot and good food at both. There is a lovely bakery and good butchers in Puento don Manuel and there is a large shopping centre with a supermarket less than half an hour away and the villa is only about an hour from Malaga airport. We had a fantastic, relaxing, family holiday, thank you.

The views the hosts and the villa was absolutely amazing! We loved every part of it brilliant for all aged children. Me and my family thought that it was extreamly suitable for all of us! We didn't want to come home! Rebecca and David were brilliant most days we gasped fresh produce from their farm it was delicious! Really amazing stay at cassa la barraca thanks for the hospitality!
