"Spectacular hide away"
From beginning to end our stay at Casa Alex was brilliant. From being greeted by Tom after our long journey - to being shown the nearby town by the wonderul Dominique, this holiday was perfect. The house is stunning. In the middle of the Spanish hills with gorgeous views. Its simple interior suited our party perfectly. We were advised of needing a car - which we had hired, so you would definately need to do that as its a fair walk from anywhere. However There is an amazing restaurant just down the road, 'Can lloses' a family run restaurant that looked after us tremendously. The food and drink was gorgeous. We will definately be returning!
Thanks So much Frances for your review and the note you left us
Delighted to hear you would like to come again sometime

Thanks so much for your review. Feedback is invaluable to us and much appreciated and heeded.
We will be providing a new microwave and oven very soon.
This is a very rural location being on the edge of the national park which provides privacy and tranquility. However mosquitoes are present in the summer and ants will find any crumb or source of food accessible to them. We will earnestly put in place measures to increase mosquito and ant prevention as best possible immediately.
Our trip to Casa Alex in September will cover these issues.
Thanks again for your time to review and for your 4 star rating.
