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. …
Casa Pinar "La Casita" - Colmenar
We received a warm welcome from Pieter and Dirk on our arrival at Casa Pinar. They showed us round their charming Casa, which was well appointed and had stunning views.
We had a great time using Casa Pinar as our base to explore this region of Andalusia. We spent our days exploring then returning to this wonderful, peaceful and relaxing Casa, it made for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
The pool has wonderful views, but the view to wake up to from the Casa was very welcoming every morning and the late evening sunsets were delightful too.
Although Vento Pinar was closed the week we were there, the views from that bar were equally stunning, but we did find the bars and restaurants of Colmenar to very friendly and good quality.
Thank you Pieter and Dirk for letting us stay in your charming Casa, we had a great time …
Casa Indalo Spirit Nudist, Bed and Breakfast in Andalucia
Becoming one with nature in rural Andalucia
Casa Indalo Natu is an absolute gem - but this is not only about the house and the fantastic views all around!
Veronique and Eric have created an oasis that delights all your senses: the beauty of the house and the surroundings, the comfort, the most delightful small touches that reflect the thought and creativity of the owners, the absolutely wonderful pool with its clear water...... On top of this there is also the genuine friendship that Veronique and Eric radiate; they make you feel really part of the place and you become more aware of the nature that surrounds you.
Then there is the cuisine: WOW! Every night a different dish worthy of Michelin stars, complemented by an excellent choice of wine and with interesting conversation well into the night.
The sleep quality is something that city dwellers can never even start to believe exists - absolute silence and waking up rested and energised.
If I had to sum up our stay I would say that it is a total experience and after a week our bodies were re-tuned to the state that nature had originally intended. Surely one of our best holidays and one to be repeated in the not so distant future. Thank you Veronique and Eric for sharing your Petit-Paradis with us. …
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 …
