“The perfect little casa...”
Thank you Gill and Chris for three week's of absolute bliss. We enjoyed our time at your casa so much, that we would love to come back next year and do it all again. The house is so comfortable - a home from home - and with a lovely pool, too. The kitchen had everything we needed, so we cooked for ourselves most evenings. But when we did go out - and I have to say it was difficult to leave such a lovely location - your restaurant recommendations were fantastic - so many delicious meals. Shopping etc was really easy, with lots of local options, the coast just 20-25 mins away and loads of interesting places to explore in the locality. It really is in such a wonderful place. Thank you for making everything so easy for us, from booking, to directions and all the time we were there. And organising such beautiful weather! It was the perfect holiday house for us. We can't wait to come back.
“typical rustic cottage with pool in beautiful rural surroundings”
We have spent 10 beautiful days in this nice accomodation far away from the trouble of the towns setted in a beautiful rural landscape. We appreciated the peace and beauty of the place (there is a wonderful view to the surrownding mountains equal in which direction you look) and the spacious big ground around (wine and mango plantations). Inside we found a very cosy place with nice old rural furniture, a tasteful decoration and a good atmosphere. We'll come back again . Thanks also to the sympathic owners Chris and Gill for their help.
“Lovely with great view”
It is a lovely place with a great view. The house is good with a good kitchen and bathroom. The swimming pool is great, especialy when it is hot in the sun. You have the sun for the hole day at the swimming pool. The neightbours are at a great distance so it is very quit and stil. The road to the house is a little bit heavy, but with a normal car you can do it. We have had a very nice time on this place
“That was fantastic time in this house...can not be beter”
This house is amazing, view from that place even more, is good acces to see so many beatufull places around there, mountains, see, lake vinuela, little villeages around just amazing. I do not know even what else should i say, i may say...i'll come back snd i'll do it soon:) Thank you Gill and Chris...thanks!:)
“A fab getaway!”
We stayed for a week in July 2013 and it was fantastic! The villa is a real getaway, very secluded, yet easy enough to find with the directions provided by Gill & Chris. We hardly left the villa as it was so relaxing, choosing to BBQ most nights. The villa is rustic as expected, however eveything was provided. The pool was a good size and private. I would recommend and we would return for definite!
“Fantastic traditional little house - highly recommended!”
We enjoyed a fantastic stay at Casa Los Montes El Monecilla with our two year old son. The house is of a traditional style with thick stone walls and wooden shutters that keep it cool in the summer and a lovely little swimming pool that offers views of the valley and the surrounding fruit trees. All very well looked after. It is perched on the side of a hill with only two other houses in sight. We particularly enjoyed watching the shepherd every evening grazing his flock of goats and sheep around the valley. The location makes you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Having said this, there are several restaurants within a few minutes’ drive, the nearest supermarket is only 15 minutes away and the nearest beach only 20 minutes. We were able to explore all around Lake Vinuela and the surrounding villages and even made a day trip over to Granada to visit the Alhambra. We feel like we got a taste of the ‘real’ Spain while being less than an hour from Malaga airport.
“Beautiful location and the house is great but.......................”
Whilst the house itself and pool area and terraces are rather nice we were badly let down by the decor and house-keeping! Internally the house needs decorating badly, was not cleaned properly and was frankly dingy with bedding that was old and musty and that we believe hadn't been changed after the previous occupants - despite the owners denials about this! Externally we had to weed the upper terrace and sweep it ourselves to tidy it up!!! All a shame as it's great little place but requiring a lot of TLC to bring it up to a decent rentable standard!!
Owner's reply: You were offered a complete new set of bed linen which would have been delivered and changed within 20 minutes of your arrival...so why did you not accept this offer? Especially if you believed (wrongly!!!) the bed linen was not changed from the previous occupants. The musty smell was most certainly not inside the property or the sheets when cleaning took place, the day prior to your arrival, as explained, we encountered very bad rainfall and heavy winds, and as the property is in the middle of a mountain side in Andalucía, the land surrounding the property was saturated and this was the culprit for the 'musky smell' you state, which I actually think is a rather earthy and lovely smell... the property was for sure aired prior to your arrival and the windows opened. As for stating that the bedding hadn't been changed from the previous occupants - do you really think I would risk our holiday home reputation, which has had many holiday maker returning year on year referring to the house as their second home? The house does not need decorating and we have had no complaints about this ever! The walls are painted on a regular basis. It is a rustic rural home, and whilst it is decorated to a degree in the 'Shabby Chic' style, previous holiday makers like the charm and authenticity of this. You did comment on the walls not being as white as in the picture...well...perhaps you made a wrong choice in abode and should have gone for a modern apartment with shared pool and with white leather sofas or something of that ilk...re the weeds...it had been pouring down as stated prior to your arrival and thankfully the sun shone on your week...the weeds were minimal ...but granted there were weeds and they would have been dealt with, and needed to be removed by hand, if weed killer was used it would have sunk into the well water and caused unseen problems....also with regards to sweeping the terrace, this for sure had been done prior to your arrival, but unfortunately again due to previous weather status ..you can sweep away in Andalucía...but if you have a bit of rain and bit of wind which blows up dust from the tracks and land...you will get back a bit of dust and dirt.. I think you have been underhanded in your comments and wrong in not allowing me the opportunity to have met with you and resolved your issues and briefed you on 'campo life in Andalucia'. You did state that should you need any assistance from me you would text, which you didn't! I was only 5 minutes away. Next time if you have a problem you should allow the home owner to sort it directly while you are on holiday rather than wait and then submit a bad review...not a fair way to deal with things Sir. Pleased you termed the house as 'a great little place' ..and it would be lovely if you returned for another visit, you did enjoy a good week weather-wise in May ...I would even go mad and buy you some Luxurious Indian Cotton White sheets ...how about that!
“Perfect, secluded retreat.”
A lovely traditional Spanish property in a beautiful location with stunning panoramic views. Its secluded location gave the feeling of the real Spain. Great service from obliging, unintrusive, friendly owners. Local amenities only 10 minutes away. Beach and large supermarkets 20 minutes easy drive. We had everything we needed for a relaxing family holiday and would definitely recommend it. We will return soon.
