“Perfect place for an Xmas break”
Reviewed 30 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We have really enjoyed our recent stay at El Chaparro over the Xmas 2016 break. The villa is superbly situated, quiet and yet convenient for shops in El Chorro, Valle de Abdalajis and Alora. Cosy inside and with expansive views outside, we were able to relax and enjoy a mixture of climbing, walking, Caminito del Rey and even a spot of evening badminton on the court right next to the villa! Thanks Paco for a great holiday.

“Perfect in every way! ”
Reviewed 24 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We have just enjoyed a weekend break here. I can honestly say this place is amazing! Everything about it was perfect! The location was great for caminito del rey. The views from the house are just breathtaking. We were made to feel very welcome on check in. The house was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything you could need and more. We even managed to use the pool which was not to cold for the time of year. The outside music system was lovely for sitting at night and relaxing with a glass of wine. The garden area was very well kept with lots of different areas to relax. We loved it and will definitely be back. Thank you paco!

“Perfect paradise”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The most beautiful spot for a very peaceful and quiet stay. The views are outstanding and coul never be improved. If you want a quiet haven to get away then this is for you. PAco and his wife could not have been more obliging and kept asking if we needed anything. First class and many thanks to Paco. We will be back. Ken and Brenda from Cheshire, UK.

“Stunning place, peaceful location, great host!”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We (me and my wife) spent our most relaxing holiday in this fantastic place. I would recommend the place for those who are looking for a nice, peaceful and reasonable priced Villa to stay in El Chorro area. Especially if you like outdoor activities like climbing or hiking, or just look for a place to relax in countryside, this is the perfect spot.

El Chaparro is located in top of the hill where you can enjoy the stunning views of the mountains, and views over the green valley on the other side. And listen the sounds of the countryside like tribes of the goats passing by, or roosters crowing somewhere in the valley. :) The location of the house is also nice in climbing wise, in couple of kilometers radius you have access to hundreds of climbing routes. And if those aren’t enough, more crags can be found nearby, for example in Valle de Abdalajis which is just 10mins drive away.

The house itself is in good condition, clean inside and outside. Underfloor heating was giving an extra comfort. Big plus also for the Wifi connection which was fast and working fine all the time. The house wasn’t too small, nor too big, just perfect for us and for our friends who came to visit us for a few days. (perfect for four people). The owner is super kind, and will help you in everything what you need. Even to print out the football tickets or to teach you some Spanish if you want… :)

Paco, muchas gracias de nuevo por su amabilidad y hospitalidad! Te deseo todo lo mejor, gracias por todo!

Thanks,
Jani

“Open views, yet perfectly situated for the climbing areas of El Chorro.”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

Reasonably priced accomadation at top of a hill - just 2 kms form El Chorro village, and 7 kms from Valle de Abdalajis, which has all amenties.
It would be possible to walk to some of the climbing areas, but I would recommend a car to maximise climbing time, and ensure you visit the further crags.
Francisco (owner) very friendly, and lives in the next village should you require anything.
Just 1 km from 'The climbing Lodge', if you need any up to date information.
We were a group of 4 friends, but the house would also be perfect for a small family, and even has a wee football field, which can be floodlit at night.

The house is situated at the top of a hill, very nice view. Midlle of andalousia so you can reach many touristic area in one hour. Perfect for climbers, el chorro is 2km away. No noise at all so perfect to relax. The owner welcomed us warmly and gave us a lot of information.

“All in all it was a 10/10 holiday experience”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed at “Chaparro” in August 2011, and benefitted from some stunning weather. “Chaparro” had a number of attractions for us. The first was convenience, it is really close to Malaga airport - one hour - but also set right in the countryside with wonderful views to the montain and a green valley, it´s a really quiet place.
The house itself was without fault. Paco and Reme made us very welcome indeed. They provided a babysitting service for us one night, welcomed us with fresh fruits, gave advice on restaurants and places of interest- really everything you need.
All in all it was a 10/10 holiday experience.
