“Perfect Villa in Stunning Location”
Reviewed 2 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Casa La Barraca is a lovely villa in a truly stunning location. Rebecca and David are wonderful hosts and have thought of everything to make their guests stay as stress free and comfortable as possible. 360* views of the surrounding mountains and especially the beautiful Zafarraya pass are breathtaking. Puente don Manuel is just 10 minutes away and has a fantastic butchers, supermarkets, tapas bars and restaurants. We loved the big gas BBQ and all the different outside kitchen and eating areas, so perfect for alfresco dining. Pool and hot tub were used a lot and we loved the different colored lighting it went at night. The villa itself was very clean, spacious and comfortable with lots of little surprising and welcome extras. We would certainly come back again, and would highly recommend it to everyone.Thank you Rebbeca and David for letting us use your gorgeous villa and we all did have a holiday to remember. Caroline, Alison, Sarah :) x

“Fantastic three month rental”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Well equipped villa with outstanding views of the local panorama.
Rebecca and David are wonderful hosts, and live in the next door farmhouse.
The outside kitchen area is a brilliant addition to the property, and was well used, even during the "winter months"!
The local villages have a wide variety of excellent restaurants and shops, and excellent daily markets .
Torre del Mar is the nearest coastal resort, and is highly recommended for its overall standard
of facilities and cleanliness-excellent beach restaurants.

“Best family holiday ever”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We've just returned from our one-week holiday in Casa la Barraca and we all agree that it was our best family holiday so far. We all loved the pool (ranging in depth from 1.50m-2m) and the choice of different outside areas were great: we'd have breakfast on the terrace, lunch in the outside kitchen area and then dinner on the patio (or variations on a theme!). Having both a gas and conventional bbq was fab as we had a choice which to use and if we didn't fancy too much hassle, we could just crank up the gas one and get cooking straightaway. The views of the surrounding Sierra de Tejida mountains were simply breath-taking and we never bored of taking in these amazing views. The casa itself was very comfortable with three double bedrooms which all had lots of lots of storage. The master bedroom had an ensuite shower room (shower was always lovely and hot!) and there was also a bathroom with a bath (unusual in Spain). The kitchen had everything we needed and the dishwasher, microwave and washing machine all worked perfectly (always a bonus when you're on holiday!).
Rebecca and David made sure we had everything we needed and were the perfect hosts, letting our children ride Matteo, their donkey, and introducing us to all their animals (Big Dave was our favourite!). Our daughter was absolutely thrilled that she was able to ride Cass the horse twice during our week there, it made her holiday extra special. We also really appreciated the welcome pack which was waiting for us on our arrival, containing very thoughtful items.
We feel we really struck gold with our choice of holiday casa this year and can wholeheartedly recommend Casa la Barraca as the ideal holiday base - we will definitely return!

“Sublime”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I have stayed in quite a few villas in my time but this hits everything. Views 10, pool 10 amenities 10, owner 10, weather 10. Would most definitely come back.
Thanks for such a relaxing week. We also loved Rebecca's and David's animals they were lovely not to mention the fresh eggs. We barbecued a few nights and the views under the olive tree were lovely.
Just hope the villas and area stays the same, if you want to get away from the rat race and chill with stunning countryside then this is the place.
Thanks again.

“WONDERFUL - 1 word is enough”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

I was 10 days guest in this house. Nothing is missing, everything is so perfect for a wonderful time. Fully furnished, everything is thought. This is a special praise for Rebecca and David, which guarantee the perfect vacation. You can dangle your soul, your dreams to pursue, make a super BBQ or just take a dip in the pool. I would stay here again if I may. THANKS

“Somewhere you'll want to visit time and again!”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We spent the loveliest week at Casa La Barraca near Alcaucin. Although the weather was mixed, the villa is so well equipped that it didn't matter if the sun was shining or the rain was breaking through the clouds; we were able to eat, drink and be completely chilled out without worrying. The sound of the different wildlife - and farm life - in and around the surrounding areas was really lovely and we had such a warm welcome from Becky and David with fresh fruit and a wonderful welcome pack on arrival. The villa is really well proportioned so if you went as a group you wouldn't feel like you were on top of each other and there are different areas for relaxing outside too so plenty of options if you're wanting to chill out and read a book while others are splashing around in the gorgeous pool. We are already planning a return visit..and then another..and then another.. Highly recommend.
