Thank you so much, Sheila, for your kind words here. It was a pleasure to have you here and you are welcome back any time. All the best to you from us both.
We spent a week at Cortijo Piltraque in July. We were a family of 14 of various ages from 9 months old to 72 years old. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate us all. The kitchen was very well equipped to prepare more or less everything that you would cook at home. There were also 2 BBQs (a gas and a charcoal one) which we used most nights. The pool was lovely and clean with plenty of sunbeds and loungers. This is a great place to stay, very peaceful and picturesque. We found the track from the main road to the villa challenging at the beginning specially as we arrived in the dark, but got used to it as the week went by. However, we would recommend hiring a 4x4 vehicle and definitely NOT a low axle one! We received an excellent service from Colin and Mary who were extremely helpful. …
Peaceful and relaxing
I have stayed at Los Establos on several occasions which I guess is a good endorsement in itself the last of which was in June 2013, although set in a tranquil and peaceful location its only 10 minutes drive from Colmenar a small town that still manages to keep its traditional Spanish intimacy intact but is large enough to provide all the amenities necessary for an enjoyable stay.
The cottage is well thought out, clean, tidy and well equipped and while modern still manages to retain a rustic feel, the outside area has sun loungers, seating and table and chairs for 'al fresco' dining, the pool while not large, unless your Rebecca Adlington is plenty big enough for swimming and relaxing in.
I very much enjoyed sitting outside of an evening with a glass of wine looking out across the valley and taking in the view, although during the day clusters of white villages are clearly visible at night patches of twinkling lights spread down to the foothills of the mountains bringing the whole valley alive something I found very magical and relaxing.
The owners of the property Angela & Terry are very helpful and friendly and always available if needed and having lived in Colmenar for many years also have the advantage of being very knowledgeable about the area which was also very useful.
If you are looking for somewhere in the countryside that's quiet and relaxing but still carries the home comforts of satellite TV and Wifi yet is only 45 or so minutes from the beach then 'Los Establos' is probably it, I will certainly be returning again. …
Casa Pinar "La Casita" - Colmenar
A lovely relaxing retreat
We couldn't fault the Casita and it is exactly as described. A lovely rural retreat perfect for our honeymoon. You do need a car as the property is very isolated but once on the main roads it is easy to access Cordoba and the sea side both around an hours drive away and worth a trip. The views are fantastic and the owners very welcoming along with the dogs and chickens! …
Lagar El Buho
A little bit of heaven!
My partner and I visited the bustling little town of Colmenar for the first time last year and loved it so much decided to return.
Lagar El Buho is a large beautifully restored farmhouse retaining all the original character, coupled with all the facilities of modern day living (Sky TV, Internet etc.) - A real home from home experience!!
We were greeted on arrival by the owner Angela with a welcome pack of goodies and a guided tour of her lovely home.
Angela is an excellent host and provided us with some good tips on places to visit and local places to eat. Table Mountain on the way to Comares and Bar Bartola in Colmenar itself, are highly recommended for both atmosphere and food and we understand La Rosilla who deliver food to the villa are superb - unfortunately we didn't book in advance.
The farmhouse itself is set in a stunning and peaceful location with views to die for (even from
the bathroom), it's difficult to tear yourself away from the setting, particularly with such a great outside dining area and modern electric barbecue.
All in all a fantastic holiday and highly recommended. Can't wait to see you soon Angela & Harry!! X …
