It was our second stop and rental with Mark and Lindsay.
It's a great base for a biking holiday in rural Spain.
The bike was so good that I bought one on our return!
We'll be back at some point in the future.
This was our second visit to Mark and Lindsays home in Teba. They have nice clean apartments with all facilities and what a view, it's very relaxing and if you require anything just ask Mark or Lindsay and they will willingly help you.
The motorbikes we hired from Mark were modern and in very good condition and Mark will advise on routes and the best roads, even lunch stops if required.
The locals in Teba make you very welcome and the bars and restaurants are friendly. This is the real Spain.
We really enjoyed our first trip and this one was even better.
We will be back.
My husband & I rented a motorcycle from Mark & Lindsay at the end of April 2017. We spent 5 nights at La Calera in Apt 1. It was very comfortable, clean & spacious. What a spectacular view from the property!! Mark recommended daily routes for us that were wonderful - beautiful scenery & perfect roads. They arranged a 7 day self guided motorcycle tour into Portugal. We both thoroughly enjoyed the route & accommodations selected for us. Our plans are to return to La Calera for future self guided tours organized by Mark & Lindsay
Just back from our first stay at La Calera with Mark and Lindsay and I'm positive we will return soon. The location is stunning, the hospitality outstanding and the accommodation first rate.
We took a 7 day motorcycle rental package which included 9 days accommodation in the apartments. The bikes were outside and ready to go on day one but unseasonable heavy rain stopped play; no problem said Mark, we'll just move your rental right a day from the original dates! So, sure enough, we enjoyed a full 7 days riding in beautiful March sunshine on some of the best biking roads in Europe.
If you don't fancy self catering, as an alternative to eating out, Lindsay will provide meals and breakfasts at very reasonable rates. She is a very accomplished cook!
All in all, this place is a very well kept secret and I would highly recommend it.
We stayed here at the beginning and end of the tour that Mark put together for us. The property has amazing views and is well laid out and spacious. we were made to feel part of the family and Lyndsey cooked breakfast and an evening meal for us. The apartment was very comfy and so peaceful. There is wine and beer available and an honesty box. The tour we went on usinfg one of Mark's Tigers was an amazing experience. Teba the village is a genuine sleepy little village and we found great food and wine there and the people very hospitable and friendly. I have rebooked so think that says it all. Thanks guys for a wonderful holiday experience from start to finish .

Just returned from La Calera on a 3 day package consisting of accommodation and two GS1200 motorbikes. Everything was just perfect. Lindsay and Mark were great hosts, and gave us masses of advice on routes, places to visits etc. La Calera is located on a hill top, close to a completely non-touristy town with gobsmacking views all round. The apartment was well equipped and comfortable with plenty of outside area to chill out and relax in the stunning, tranquil setting. The bikes were well maintained and we were spoilt for choice for rides outs - all the roads are immaculate, jaw-droppingly scenic, traffic free with plenty of twisties.
Can't recomnend La Calera and bmwmotohire enough! Big thanks Mark and Lindsay!

In many ways I don't want to review La Calera, because I want to keep it the best kept secret that it is. An absolute gem of a place and a haven of tranquility. The accommodation is well maintained and has to be the best stocked apartment I've ever stayed in.
The owners Mark and Lindsay are the perfect hosts, warm and hospitable and nothing is too much trouble.
A short walk in to town and with views to die for its a place I will return to frequently
Thank you Mark, Lindsay, Nadia and Louis for one of the most fun, relaxing holidays we have had.
The perfect holiday accommodation...but ssshhhh keep it to yourself!!
