"A truly wonderful retreat in the beautiful Andalucian countryside"

I cannot speak more highly of our recent stay in this amazing retreat! The villa was simply beautiful, set high up in the hills, away from the noise and hustle and bustle of everyday life (yet conveniently close to the nearest town), equipped with lovely homely touches and a fantastic decked area from which to enjoy the amazing sunsets!
Walter and Christine could not have been more welcoming and helpful, giving advice on walks we could do, and popping over with lovely treats throughout our stay!
It was the most relaxing and peaceful holiday I think I have ever had..we cannot wait to come again!

"Truly Relaxing"

"Relaxation in the Gualchos hills"

Our second stay at this unique retreat was as great as the first, probably better as we had none of the nervousness that normally accompanies renting a house for a week. Christine and Walter are fantastic hosts and the location and the setting simply stunning. If you seek to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, treat yourself to a slice of paradise and relaxation in the Gualchos hills. The coast is close but we found little need to leave the retreat and its lovely pool. Cocktails at sunset followed by Christine's delicious homecooked food was the perfect way to unwind. We cannot wait to return.

"wonderful,relaxing and beautiful oasis in the hills"

Just the most amazing and original place to while away the days in the most wonderful setting. The place is a little paradise set in the hillside away from all the hustle and bustle of city life, but just a short, but exciting, car ride away from some beautiful beaches.

Walter and Christine are great hosts who are invisible or as visible as you choose and have made their little oasis a perfect place to stay with their touch of rustic charm.

Our family including our 11 month old granddaughter had the time of our lives........we will be returning!!!!!!!!!!

"vaca santa! Just go there...."

Perfect for one and all. Whether you want somebody to cook for you, you are happy to live off nuts and berries (or figs) picked from the mountainside trees or any point in between the two; this will … More

"Exceeding all expectations - fab, fab, fab"

We had an absolutely fantastic holiday staying in this beautiful oasis with an 'infinity' terrace which takes you away from all of life's stresses and strains and enables you to relax in a beautiful rural location yet with all the luxuries you may need. The cottage was equipped with everything you need for a wonderful stay - including beach equipment! The owners, Walter and Christine are born hosts - they will leave you alone or chat and entertain as you wish and could not be more hospitable. We almost don't want to write a review in case you book a week that we want - but really cannot recommend this highly enough - and we are picky travellers!!

"Wonderful week - we will definitely be back"

Just back from a wonderful week at Casita La Bodega, beautiful house, great views and a real oasis! Walter and Christine (and their 2 dogs) were very welcoming and ensured that we had everything that we needed. They also cooked us a fabulous meal on one of the evenings, served at sunset on their terrace, with enough left overs to cover the next days meals as well. We will definitely be back.

"Perfect stay in Andalusia."

We found it by chance but we were very satisfied with everything. Great hospitality, wonderfull place, quietness but good location in the mountains, not far away from the sea and from Sierra Nevada, perfect owners, very helpfull, . We are sure that we would like to return on that place. We highly recommend it.
