“FANTASTIC HOLIDAY” We have just returned from casa con la torre after spending two weeks there.
Words could not express how beautiful and relaxing this place is.
My family and I have rented villas in France and Spain and casa con la torre tops the lot. We were into our second week and re-booked it for next year.
The villa has everything you require with an abundance of seeting areas to suit your requirements.
Lubrin village is challenging if you don't speak Spanish but you will always find someone that is willing to help you but I would advise some basic Spanish lessons.
Jim cotter the owner is one of the nicest people we have ever dealt with when renting accommodation and nothing was a problem.
We would highly recommend this holiday home.
We had a lovely time last week at Casa Con LaTorre! 8 of us stayed in this villa very comfortably, we loved the stunning views around the villa and the pool was everyone’s favourite place to be! We had a few problems with the dishwasher and fridge freezer but nothing that ruined our holiday! Gary the Poolman was very helpful throughout our stay and helped us a lot with finding our way around the small town Lubrin and the Pool that he looks after is amazing! We enjoyed going to Los Chiveros and La Tasca which are in Lubrin and we also found Restaurante Albar down the road which meant we had a few choices of places for dinner in the evening! Although we had a few places to choose from the food at these places were quite limited unless you enjoy tapas and pizza all the time, but we also ate in the villa a few nights so this didn’t worry us too much! I would recommend hiring a car while staying here as most places are around 30 minutes away from Lubrin if you want to go out and do anything! James was very helpful from when we booked the villa in January all the way to the end of the holiday! …

Peaceful location with lots of walks

The accomodation has been well thought out and the hosts have been particularly considerate in their provision of equipment from maps and walking guides to books and dvds for quiet evenings.
Lubrin is an ideal location for anyone seeking a quiet, relaxing break. It is ideal for walkiing, running or cycling activities or as a base for visiting historic sites and places of interest. The village is within easy walking distance and caters for the purchase of basic commodities. It also offers a choice of bars and restaurants where you will be greeted with a friendly reception and find reasonably priced food and drink. …

My Spanish Retreat
As I am a Zimbabwean, I have seen many spectacular sites. From the Victoria Falls to the mountains in the Vumba in Zimbabwe. I travel a lot in my job and I did not believe that I would ever find anything to rival the scenery of my homeland. But that was before I visted Lubrin in Spain. Nothing could have prepared me for Fuente Arriba!
In the famous words of David Livingstone, there were "scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight." The surrounding hills are perfect for long walks in the country. There is next to no traffic and so the calm and tranquil surroundings add to the attraction. Add to this the friendliness of the local people and the ridiculously low prices for superb food and service, and what you have is the best holiday I have ever had.
The owners of the villas went out of their way to make our stay outstanding. We had everything we could ever want and when we went into town, the local people treated us like family due to the close relationship the have with the owners.
Without wanting to waffle on, go and see it for yourself. There is no noise pollution that you would find in a modern city and the authentic spanish villas will blow your mind. We took our 8yr old and 6yr old and for the first time in ages, the Nintendo's were not asked for as there was so many things to entertain them. From Boule to Croquet, we had the best family holiday ever.
The other thing is that there are a number of attractions in close proximity. From water parks to cowboy theme parks, you are seriously spoilt for choice.
To finish off my review, I will use the words of my 6 year old. When asked what he enjoyed the most about the holiday he answered "That the air smelt different and that it was the quietest place in the world." So fresh air and tranquillity... at the most affordable city on this earth in my experience. Need I say more? Book and experience total joy! …
