“Fabulous location both for lazing around and exploring the area.”
Reviewed 4 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had the benefit of being able to stay in both Casa Pequena and El Apartamento. Both properties have their advantages and it is difficult to choose between the two. The Casa is quirky being on different levels but seems to have easier access to the gardens.This is really a mindset thing as El Apartamento is really just as accessible but we loved the large roof terrace in the apartment.
A wonderful location for exploring the south coast and Los Alpujarras, especially since the motorway is now complete. Travelling to Malaga airport is now much easier.
The gardens are amazing with lots of little hidden corners - every trip through them seemed to throw up a new,previously undiscovered delight. Night time is especially rewarding with all the garden lighting.
We can't wait to return next year and take advantage of Patrick's great hospitality once again as well as meeting up with his three very friendly dogs.

Many thanks for taking the trouble to submit your lovely Review. So pleased that you enjoyed your first visit to Cortijo Nuevo and have already reserved a 6 week period next winter. Winters down on the Costa Tropical are rather special and enable all manner of plants to flourish in the gardens here. Dino, Boris & Hector are looking forward to welcoming Ruby back! See you in 2017

Delighted that you found Casa Pequeña to be a comfortable, clean and tranquil holiday base. Yes, the gardens are rather special, pleased you relaxed in the sun with the dogs ok. They always welcome company and returnees, looking forward to your return in the future.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 2 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Weather was what we expected,jeans/t shirt sometimes jumper for day time, blue sky for 5 days of our 7 day visit. Patrick has created a lovely home from home. Everything provided for a comfortable stay. Enjoyed company of the 3 dogs although a lot of barking during some nights speaking to other dogs in the area, not a problem for me, maybe for others.Lots of lovely spots to sit in garden. Loved shopping in Lidls, cooked lots of fish dishes at apartment using fresh lemons from tree inn garden, also avocado and oranges!Hired a car and did local exploring, very cheap to eat at beach restaurant at Salobrena and in Motril.

So pleased that you enjoyed your time in Casa Pequeña and the January weather was mostly warm and sunny. Apologies for the barking on a couple of nights. Hector my cocker spaniel likes to communicate with any barking stray dogs in the area after Midnight. Normally, he sleeps inside my farmhouse at night, but he managed to escape a couple of times, I will keep a closer eye on him in future. Living here full time, I don't notice the distant barking from isolated fincas behind in the hills. Many country houses in Spain have guard dogs, part of life here...normally the gardens are an oasis of peace with few neighbours as many reviews suggest. Yes, eating out is very reasonable, being a Spanish area. Still possible to find 'menu del día' for less than 8€ in Motril to include wine! And of course Free tapas in most bars...

“Authentic Costa del Tropical secluded garden oasis!”

Patrick offers a fantastic opportunity to get away from the tourist traps and the routine of every day life by providing a tranquil and calming setting hidden away in the Costa del Tropical.

A warming welcome by Patrick and the dogs (Dino, Hector and Bruno) to a very well establish garden enclosing beautifully authentic Spanish villas. We stayed in the smaller of the two available, perfect for a couple.

A well appointed kitchen offering everything one would need to self cater for a break, linked to a sitting room with views over the garden and out to the mountains in the distance. Off from the sitting room you'll find the roof terrace providing a perfect place for sun bathing or enjoying a drink whilst the sun goes down.

The bedroom is furnished with what's needed and is typically what you'd expect in a Spanish property. The decor of the entire villa is exactly what the mind conjures when thinking about Spain.

The gardens are extensive and offer many spots to sit and relax, we favoured breakfast in the morning outside to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. A number of spots are also available outdoor cooking, including near the pool.

We visited restaurants and attractions locally, we very much enjoyed the food at La Barraca in Alumencar and found wonderful tapas at La Trevelez in Motril. We also happened to find La Flor de la Canela which is an amazing ice cream parlour. The Motril tourist website was very useful as were guides offered by Patrick on his website and in person.

We'd definitely recommend Casa Pequena or the other cottage if you were wanting a little more space within the villa. We very much look forward to returning sometime in the future

Many thanks Patrick - a superb holiday!

Craig & Cleo.

Liked best: Garden to relax in and the general atmosphere. We felt very much left to our own devices
Liked least: We prefer a firm mattress but completely understand the memory foam mattress available is of a high quality and would not rate the experience down on this basis at all.

Delighted you appreciated the ethos of the casita and enjoyed pottering and helping with the numerous flowers and plants. Yes, the bed is a standard Spanish double from the 19th Century (recent mattress though!) carved wood with footboard so not ideal for long people! If over 6 foot tall perhaps choose my other rental home here (El Apartamento) also listed with Tripadvisor with many posive reviews too. The gardens are so lovely: long balmy nights in Summer, occasionally travellers have been known to sleep outside under the starry skies or on the roof!
