CASA PEQUEÑA: a charming cottage style villa, enjoying one bedroom and perfect for couples searching for a tranquil romantic getaway.
To maintain the sense of privacy and calm. Hidden away in the gardens of a traditional Andalucían farmhouse (Cortijo Nuevo), lovely countryside location and just 2kms from the rugged Mediterranean coast and many diverse beaches. Enjoy the best of all Worlds; relaxing sub-tropical gardens, yet just a 5 minute drive to bustling market town of MOTRIL and the beach life it enjoys! Property being at sea level benefits from a wonderful climate (probably the best in mainland Europe), mild Winters and often a sea breeze during the long hot Summers - not an isolated cottage in the hills where access is often problematic.

We had the most amazing chilled holiday at Casa Pequeña, the host Patrick was so helpful and charming and available to answer any queries we had. This little oasis is tucked away from the noise of everyday living, but yet so close to the bustling town of Motril. The gardens are truly incredible and Casa Pequeña has got everything one...

Management response:

Delighted that you found your stay at Casa Pequeña so rewarding and loved the gardens and ambience. True, so close to Motril with all it's tapas bars and great shopping, beaches and the like. Pity holiday over, Motril Summer fiesta started yesterday - 6 days and nights of merriment, although hard to believe in the silent gardens here....looking forward to...

Now back home and studying the reviews again - I agree with the people from Germany who visited in Sept 2015 compared to all the others from years previous. I am unsure of what has gone wrong but this place is very unkempt, tired and in need of a facelift both in the gardens and in the casita which we...

Management response:

Also disappointed that Casa Pequeña failed to match expectations and apologies for perceived shortcomings! Pleased that alternative and more suitable accommodation was found and holiday enjoyed. Nontheless, some clarification required: 1) - to quote after hasty departure some hours later; " sorry to have left your property so soon, the place was very quaint and charming but not to my...

We have just returned home from 10 amazing days spent at Casa Pequena and it was so much more than we were expecting. The garden is incredible and every day we found a new little bit. The place is very secure so felt comfortable sleeping with the windows open and was never worried about leaving the doors unlocked. Although the...

Management response:

Many thanks for your generous praise. Always great when travellers appreciate and enjoy this place; usually managing to totally relax from the stresses of the 21st Century! Of course the tranquility, sunshine, gardens and dogs all contribute - my stress levels practically zero living here fulltime!!! Looking forward to welcoming you both back in the future, Hector will be waiting...

About the neighbourhood
MOTRIL - 3kms or a five minute drive away is the commercial capital of the area. A lovely busy Spanish market town with every facility and amenity to make your holiday fun. The modern tourist office beside the large American park will guide you on an historical tour of it's sugar cane past. There are many shopping areas in town, tapas bars/restaurants (excellent sea food down in the port area), all sporting facilities including 18 hole golf course and Olympic size pool.<BR>Remember ferries leave daily for trips over to Morocco and Melilla - you can watch their movements from your private roof terrace, great with a glass of Rioja!
Getting around
Car highly recommended (unless you want to simply rest in the exotic garden or poolside), secure parking area. There is a limited bus service to nearby Motril 3kms (only 5 daily!), 10 minutes away. There modern bus station with Alsa coaches in all directions. Also many taxis serve the area.
