“Been back home for 2 weeks and I ache to go back. . .” Our 2nd holiday at Patricks and it won't be our last. For us it is like a home from home but with beautiful sunshine and an outdoor kitchen and music besides the pool. Really missing Dino and Hector, bbq's by the pool, the roofs terrace, gorgeous garden and it's delicious sent of an evening, views across the mountains, the shaded garden hammock, the fountains . . . Anyway, Patrick has two lovely resident dogs, Dino and Hector. If you like dogs, you will enjoy their company. If you are a keen gardener, you'll be in awe of Patricks tropical oasis. You do need a car if you stay here, but that's fine because it gives you the freedom to roam and explore and your leisure. Motril (10 minute car drive) is clean and a real Spanish town. If you are looking for something a bit more touristy, then pop to Nerja for the day, it's about 40 minutes away. We tended to drive to Salobrena if we wanted a day at the beach and to eat out. Patrick is a very discreet host, he doesn't intrude yet manages to be around if you need to ask him something. The facilities are good. Kitchen has every utensil and all the white goods you need and there is plenty of linen and towels available.
Thank you Patrick :)
“Relaxing romantic getaway ...” We were looking for a romantic getaway where we could escape city life. This is just what we were looking for. We spent many days just relaxing by the wonderful pool. We spend nights grilling on our terrace and looking at the stars. This was a perfect vacation for us because we were able to spend some days relaxing at the Cortijo Nuevo and also spent time traveling around the area of Granada, Sierra Nevada, Malaga and other small towns in the area. Patrick was very kind and helpful and I would recommend this place to friends and family.
“Excellent location in a very pleasant village.” Peaceful just what we needed. Swimming pool few minutes walk away in the village. Easy access to surrounding areas ie. thermal baths, market and not too far from Granada if you want to sightsee.. 3 pubs and cafes in the village serving excellent wines and food. Restuarant nearby if you don't want to cook although the Amapola is well equipped with all that you would need.
“Exactly as Described” Great Customer Service, very friendly, location was brilliant. Denise, Rosie were both more than helpful and we couldn't have asked for more. The place was exactly as described by you and it really met our needs. We enjoyed our stay, we loved the village and the people.
“Superb Cave in a Great Location” Lovely cave house in a stunning location. The property was clean and well appointed. Our host met us on arrival after very clear directions to the house. The village is just a short walk away with friendly bars serving free tapas with a beer and a small supermarket covering most of our needs. Although very rural there is plenty to see and do. From Gorge walking in Castril to horse riding in the Sierra de Baza. Bobs knowlege of the area and help will leave the most novice of travellers at ease. Hoping to return in the future.
