The cottage was ideal for us, miles away from the maddening crowds, peaceful and welcoming. Pam and Bernard the hosts, were very welcoming, more than helpful with any queries we had and went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. The cottage was lovely, loads of space and kitchen was very well equiped. Pam lends the guests a coolbox which plugs into the car cigarette charger and keeps food cold for when you go shopping or on a picnic. They took us to a bar on a Friday nights to meet their friends who were very friendly and welcomed us into their group. They also held barbeques which were very tasty, we met so many of their friends and felt part of the group straight away. It was such a relaxing lovely place to go to, we will definately be going back there, the weather was perfect, and the pllunge pool a welcoming cool dip after the hot sun. I cannot fault them in any way, If I needed anything Pam or Bernard would try to find it for us, either from their own stores or when they went shopping, such helpful friendly people, thank you so much for a wonderful holiday x

If you want to visit rural Spain but still access the sites of Granada and Almeria provinces then this is the property for you. Set in the Sierra de Baza National Park it is a stunning place to spend your holiday. The owners are so helpful and full of tips and advice.

"Quiet and Fantastic Cortijo"
If your looking for bars and nightlife this is most deffinatly NOT the place for you,but if you like a quiet peacefull and relaxing time you will find it at Cortijo Pepe Soria.
We found the cortijo more than adequate and exceeded our expectations. The owners Pam and Bernie were fantastic, around for help and advice but not overbearing. We spent several evenings round the bbq with them. They also took us down to the local bar to meet their friends.The kids loved playing in the pool and playing with the dogs.
There is so much to do in the area the national park sierra de bazza where we saw wild deer, the lake at Negratin where you can swim with the fish, hire a pedello or just rellax in the restaurant to mention a couple.There was so much that we still wanted to see.
We flew to Alicante and it was a 2 1/2 hour drive on the motorway up to the cortijo through beutifull countryside. The cortijo was easy to find and only 5 mins from the motorway.
We had a great stay and are deffinatley looking at returning.

"Peace & quiet in beautiful surroundings"
This is our second visit within twelve months, could'nt stay away. In fact we liked it so much that we are going back in September.
A longish but very easy drive from Malaga, Almeria and Alacante airports. There are plenty of good places to stop en-route for meals and refreshments and the scenery is stunning!!
There are two large towns within striking distance, Gaudix 12 kilometres to the west & Baza12 kilometres to the east. The small and charming village of Gor with a couple of small bars and restaurants and a weekly market is only about 2 and a half kilometres away.
The accommodation at the farmhouse is excellent as are the hosts Bernie and Pam. The views from the farm are incredible. We have never been at a loss for somewhere to go or something to do.
Simply put, our stays with Bernie and Pam have been the most wonderful and relaxing holidays we have had for many years.

"The perfect place for a peaceful, relaxing holiday!"
The property is situated among 15 acres of olive trees, with beautiful views across the surrounding countryside. It is very peaceful, and has its own pool and outside patio area with bbq. The property itself is deceptively spacious with two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and lounge with tv - all of which are very clean. It is a typical Spanish farmhouse so is full of character. The owners live next door so are on hand any time of the day or night should you need them. They are the most friendly, helpful people you could wish to meet, and we spent many an hour sitting chatting with them over a beer! (They even took us down to a bar in the local village one night to meet all their friends!) The are also very knowledgeable about the local area and can suggest places to visit. The property is well situated as it is only 5 minutes from the motorway. From here you can reach the local towns of Baza and Guadix, and if you are after a day out you can head for Granada or Almeria. There is also a lovely 'Parque Natural' nearby and the beautiful Negratin lake, which is great for swimming and sunbathing.
All in all a great holiday in one of the most beautiful parts of Spain. We will definately visit 'Pepe Soria' again if we are in that area.
