Description from owner
Friendly real Southern Spain - this house is great for families.My friends in the village look after the property- Quitin is a builder and Honoria is the housekeeper - perfect to take care and keeps things immaculate.Benamahoma, is lovely and in the heart of rural Andalucia - perfect country for cyclists (the Vuelta de Espana passed through in 2014).There are wonderful views from terraces and pool to the valley and mountains - yet you are right in the middle of this small village with all the services you require - pharmacy, food shopping, bars, restaurants, bank etc.A magnificent spot to base yourselves for day trips - local and further afield - we go frequently to Seville (try Seville Concierge website for a guided tour) and Jerez.- beautiful less than 1.5 hours away.Walk daily in the mountains and by the river and either have lunch in the village or drive a short distance to our neighbouring villages.In the middle of a National Park of historic significance and protected under UNESCO.The location is equally perfect for summer, spring, autumn or winter - guaranteed sunshine in the summer months and often spectacular into autumn as well.Winter you can often find our mountains with a light dusting of snow but with 2 fireplaces in the house we always feel cosy and warm - we have installed heating and air conditioning in every room as well.
Luxurious, quality bedding: Beautiful cotton towels from John Lewis provided (white for indoors, aqua for the pool area); all White Company Linen on the beds with 100% Egyptian Cotton Sheets; all mattresses, duvets, pillows, pillow covers, mattress protectors either from the White Company or John Lewis.
Further details indoors
All Habitat beds with White Company Egyptian cotton sheets, with excellent quality mattresses, bedding, feather duvets and pillows (all from the White Company or John Lewis). Two bedrooms have build in storage and the other rooms have stand-alone wardrobes. All rooms have mirrors, chairs and shelving with in built drawers. The decoration is contemporary and elegant. We have tried to provide for ourselves, and for our guests, a comfortable and relaxing interior. The kitchen is very well equipped, with all of the items a domestic chef requires. There is an open fire on the main floor in the living/dining room adjacent to the kitchen, and in the downstairs living room where the TV, DVDs, CDs, books, games, DVD and stereo are located there is a wood burning stove making the house equally suitable for winter holidays. There is built in air conditioning and heating throughout the house. There are small individual docking station speakers for ipods in two of the bedrooms. Hairdryers are provided in each of the bedrooms.
Further details outdoors
With three terraces (one on each level running the width of the building) one never tires of the views to the valley where local people grow their own fruit and vegetables for sale both to the householders and to the local stores. The sunsets over the mountains towards Seville are breathtaking and whilst during the high heat of the summer the terraces are best enjoyed before 12pm and after 9pm, shade can always be taken in the compact garden terraces and pool area or indoors with air conditioning.The bottom/garden terrace has tables and chairs for outdoor dining for up to 10 people. The kitchen/living room terrace has small tables and chairs for breakfast dining, and the upstairs bedroom terrace has relaxed seating for lounging.

“Immaculate villa in lovely village”
We had a lovely stay in Erin's villa. Everything was clean and in great condition. Very spacious and great shutters to keep out light, heat and noise. Note that there are a LOT of stairs as it's built into a hill. The pool is two storeys below the basement level of the house. We were with our toddler, it was fine as there were two of us to keep an eye on him but I wouldn't like to stay there with more than one child who's not quite stair-safe yet. And it's not suitable for those who find stairs a challenge. The only slight annoyance were the noisy neighbours in the pool next door some days and on Saturday evening - but there's not a lot Erin can do about that, and if you don't have small children or aren't looking for silence then you'll be fine. Also the curtains seem to have gone missing from the back of the house - needs more curtains or awnings to cut down on the heat as the sun's on the back of the house from 12 till it sets - great for the pool though!
Owner's reply: So lovely to hear from you! Thanks for the feedback and the shade curtains have been replaced plus two large sun umbrellas have been installed. Warmest regards Erin
“Wonderful house in a beautiful village!”
Everything is just perfect: the house is wonderful, the little village picturesque with very good restaurants and small bars, great walks nearby, beautiful pool area and lovely sights from each of the 4 (!) terraces. We just loved all of it. We have been in many rental houses around the world, but this is defenitely one of the prettiest and most equiped: it is like you are at home. So if you are looking for a beautiful house situated in a green, spectacular and authentic part of Andalucia with lots of walks and sightseeing nearby (and very good food..): don't hesitate! Thank you Erin!
Owner's reply: I am so happy that you had great stay. I look forward to seeing you return to Benamahoma. Warm regards, Erin
“Beautiful house in lovely surroundings”
I have been to Erin's wonderful villa twice now and both times found it brilliant. The house is large, spacious and with lovely outdoor space including a swimming pool perfect for dipping in and out of (the large municipal swimming pool in the village is great if you want to do proper lengths and is very clean and well maintained). The village is perfect, with few (if any!) other tourists and contains a few restaurants and bars which are great for an evening drink or a relaxed dinner. The surrounding villages are worth a visit, but you can also easily spend the week in the house as it is so relaxing (apart from the early morning wake up calls from the cockerels nearby!). The house has all the amenities you could need including well-equipped kitchen, bbq, tv, dvd, music etc. All in all, a really lovely place to stay and I daresay I will be back again!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much - hope to see you back again!
“Beautiful house in a peaceful, scenic white mountain village”
This village house is tastefully decorated and furnished, with all the facilities you could wish for, including a delightful pool at the bottom of a steep terraced garden, with fruit trees. The village itself is very Spanish and friendly with very few tourists. There are bars and restaurants, a bakery, bank, pharmacy and free internet in a little library. The back of the house has terraces with stunning views of the mountains. It is a very good base for exploring the region, with Jerez, Cadiz and Seville all an easy car journey away. The roads have very little traffic. One of the most relaxing holidays I've ever had.
Owner's reply: Hi - so happy you enjoyed the house as much as I do. Hope to see you back again soon. Warmest regards.
“A taste of the real Spain”
This is a fantastic property situated in a delightful Spanish village in the mountains. We stayed here for 1 week in June and had a wonderful time. The house has been decorated to the highest standard and is very clean throughout with everything you need. It has a private pool/lounge area but also a shaded veranda for evening cocktails. There are a couple of restaurants in the village where the local delicacy is trout caught from the local river which is amazing! There is also a great little supermarket with everything you need. We hired a car to get around in the area to see some of the other villages and the drives around there are beautiful. We also spent a day in Seville which is well worth a visit, especially the bullring.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Would love to see you back soon. Warmest regards.
“A bit of real spain and very comfortable”
Very comfortable stay in a lovely mountain village - house was built into the hillside and had a number of lovely terraces to sit out with a drink and view the villagers at work in their farms, or see the sun go down behind the mountains. House spacious and cool, with all modern things you want, including comfortable beds, well fitted kichen and a big store of dvds! Village is charming, and local people friendly. Easy to drive, and nice walks locally. Very peaceful and all that we wanted.
Owner's reply: So happy you had a great time and hope to see you back again soon! Warmest regards, Erin
“A stunning house that exceeded all our expectations.”
We had such a good time that we cam back and will do so again. The village is stunning. It was great to have the alternative large pool in the village and we also took the children to the stunning cliff top pool in Grazalema. Erin was the perfect host and was able to give service without being fussy or invasive. The house is spacious with all the utensils you find in your own kitchen, and has a great range of options for a quiet night in. The local restaurants are simple but good, and this is definitely a place to go if you don't want to find yourself surrounded by tourists. The views every morning are amazing (beware the dawn chorus - it's loud!) and the local walks are filled with interesting trees ,plants and animals. I wouldn't recommend this for those with buggies but perfect for families who like the outdoors.
Owner's reply: Thank you for the lovely review and I am looking forward to seeing you back in Benamahoma soon. It's a shame you couldn't make it this year in the end. Take care - very warm regards to all the family. Erin
