Location description from owner

The Andalucia region

Andalucia is one of the most beautiful regions of Spain and the amazing direct view of Lake Vinuela and the mountain range of the Sierra Tejeda will not cease to impress. The beauty of the forever changing colours of the mountains,the tranquility of Lake Vinuela and the peace of the countryside are inspiring in this rural yet well connected region.

The many Andalucian 'pueblo blancos' are a short drive away and can be seen lighting up the hill side at night.
Granada,with it's fabulous Alahambra Palace, Cordoba, Ronda and Malaga can all be visited in a day.

The beautiful beaches of the Costa can be reached easily from the house.The nearest popular resorts being Torre Del Mar, Nerja and a little further along the coast is Herradura.

For those who like all things natural the flora changes seasonally and the nearby National Park of the Tejeda mountains can be visited and explored on foot.
Experience real Spain at Casa Ribeyro!

“Real rustic Spain, with fabulous views”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2016

We are sitting back home looking out at the rain beating on the windows and wishing we were back in Spain! Casa Ribeyro is a lovely authentic rustic finca, with all the old charm you would expect in this very Spanish mountainous region. There is a beautiful pool with fantastic views up towards the mountains and down to the lake. We were left a lovely welcome pack which meant we didn't have to find our way to the shops on the first day. The property is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. There are several restaurants in and around the village but you do need a car to get to them, or you can walk down to the lakeside restaurants, although not advisable in the dark. We didn't meet Alex and Charles personally, but Alex was very accommodating in letting some friends of ours stay for a few days in the property with us, for a small extra charge. It was lovely to share the experience and views with our friends. On the downside, the access to the property is very, very steep and narrow, and as we had been upgraded by the car hire company, we had a totally unsuitable car for the terrain. Would suggest a fairly small car is hired which has plenty of poke and good ground clearance to get up and down the steep lanes. Also not so good is the incessant barking of the local dogs all around the property. What is it with dog owners that they think everyone wants to hear their dogs bark, at times constantly, day or night, when they shut them outside? There is no longer a hot tub at the property. That said, we did have the most fantastic holiday in spite of the above drawbacks, and would not hesitate to recommend Casa Ribeyro to others, who, with the help of this and other reviews, can make an informed judgement on what they want from a holiday. If it's fantastic views, good weather, the rural life and friendly people, then this is the place!

“Lovely place, lovely people, relaxed to the max”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2013

A perfect vacation spot away from the crowds and the beaches, beautiful location, outstanding accommodation and truly welcoming hosts. Alex and Charles met us at the local pub for a welcoming drink then helped us along the final stretch of country road to the house, and to move our luggage, they made us feel at home instantly - thanks guys. The starter pack of groceries was a simple idea but very helpful, especially if your first day is a Sunday. As advised the holiday really needs a car, but the roads are quiet and well signed and you need one anyway to explore the spectacular countryside. We will definitely come back first chance we get.

Owner's reply: It was a pleasure to meet you both and so glad you enjoyed your time at Casa Ribeyro. We would love to see you both again anytime. Thank you for your kind comments. Regards,Alex and Charles

Alex and Charles couldn't have been more helpful our batteries are recharged looking forward to returning next year Dave says hope Charles not eaten black pudding left in fridge Can't wait to come back love and best wishes Dave and Gill

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We have eaten the black pudding but will get you a fresh one for your return next June! Look forward to seeing you then. Regards,Alex and Charles

“Home from home - Casa Ribeyro”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2012

Super property offering all that it say's on the " tin " and more - expansive property with excellent accommodation both inside & out. Superb views of lake and surrounding countryside - which we never tired of enjoying - whatever time of the day - most peaceful location with the great benefit of good sized pool - not often found in one / two bedroom lets. Would look forward to returning again in near future to enjoy this " jewel " and the company of our hosts " Alexandros & Carlos " - their adopted Spanish names.

Owner's reply: We are so glad you enjoyed sharing our 'jewel' with us. We enjoyed meeting you too and look forward to the next time. The Lake and mountains will be waiting! Thank you for your kind comments. Alexandros and Carlos.

“Beautiful character property, comes with friendly & helpful hosts!”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2012

Stayed at this charming, quaint and quirky spanish property (should be in the mr & mrs guide....accept for the fantastic value) to do a bit of property hunting ourselves and for a relaxing break too! it was absolutely spotless and position was perfect for all our needs. The owners were on hand to guide us to the best local restaurants and bars and always a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy a tasteful spanish property set in stunning, beautiful & peaceful surroundings.........(.the view across the lake is breath taking), but appreciate outstanding value!!

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your stay and that you appreciated the fabulous views from the Farmhouse.It was a pleasure to meet you both. Alex and Charles
