The house is really nice, we felt right at home straight away and the views from the rear balcony are amazing. The village is so nice and relaxed and the local people were so friendly. Loads of places to eat and drink and so cheap we couldn’t believe it, I could have spent the whole week just in the village....

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Salamanquesa. We look forward to welcoming you back!

I have visited this house on a number of occasions and my partner usually visits twice a year and has done for the last three years. The house is always spotlessly clean on arrival and the owner and his staff are very approachable, and if there are any problems there is a local contact who responds immediately. We will continue...

Management response:

Hi Martyn, Thanks for the kind review. Much appreciated and we look forward to your next visit. Kind regards Colin

About the neighbourhood
Riogordo was built by the Catholic kings besieging Velez Malaga, although there are indications of earlier settlement by the Carthaginians and Romans. It is a classic Spanish 'pueblo blanco' (white village) with houses built in the typical Moorish-influenced Andalucían village style, some with interior patios, wells and stables. <BR><BR>Nestled amongst majestic mountain ranges, it retains a real sense of history while boasting a full range of shops, banks and restaurants. Life is tranquil and leisurely, the villagers friendly and welcoming.
