“Fabulous location, beautiful property”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2014

We stayed at Al Hambra for the second time in September, having thoroughly enjoyed our stay last summer. The property is in an idyllic countryside location but it is only a short drive to a number of local towns and some great holiday activities such as horse riding, a water park and a small theme park. The house is lovely inside, with plenty of room for a big family, and has a courtyard where we sat outdoors to eat on the nights when we just wanted to relax. The pool is a fantastic addition to the property and we spent a few days relaxing around the pool making the most of the beautiful weather. Owners Jillian and Matthew are incredibly helpful and kindly made some recommendations for local places to visit and also went out of their way to make reservations for us at a couple of fantastic restaurants. Would recommend to families/couples/groups looking to relax in the beautiful French countryside and explore the local region. A truly fabulous two weeks and I can't wait to return in the future!

“A beautiful, rural location, pretty house set in lovely grounds with a great pool”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2014

This is a four bedroomed house. The finish and feel of the house is higher spec than the pictures suggest. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The only criticism would be that there is no genuine double bed - they are all singles pushed together, which meant my partner and I kept falling down the gap in the middle! The upstairs bedrooms are very pretty but have sloping ceilings so you can only stand up in part of the room. They are really pretty though, with all sorts of lovely, arty touches and beams which give them a nice feel. The fourth bedroom is a pretty, good sized single which is downstairs, next to a separate shower room and loo. The bedroom has doors straight out onto the courtyard. The downstairs is spacious with an open plan kitchen area, large dining area and lounge and is bigger than it seems from the pictures. You have a private courtyard with a pond where you can eat and enjoy the sun. The house is joined onto the owners' property on one side and another, smaller rental house on the other. The garden is huge and absolutely stunning with fruit treas and flowers and a beautiful view. The pool is gorgeous and a good size for the property. Matthew and Jillian are unintrusive but warm and friendly (we were welcomed with wine and home made bread and invited to help ourselves to veg and fruit from their garden) and we felt completely able to relax in the garden and pool. They offered us an opportunity to join in activities locally - we tried horseriding and archery - and were very helpful and informative about the local area. There are several very pretty towns and villages nearby as well as a health spa. The only other criticism would be that there was no washing machine working in the house (it had apparently broken shortly before our visit) so we had to ask our hosts to do washing for us, which was not ideal. It may be worth checking that this has been resolved if it was important to you. I have already recommended this rental to a friend - it is excellent value. Their smaller, two bedroomed property next door is also stunning. The area is easy to navigate and the drive from the airport (we drove from Bordeaux) was straightforward. We were a party of six, two seniors, my two kids and my partner and me. It worked really well for everyone.
