“Peaceful location in rural Spain”
I have always been a fan of Greece and the Greek islands so a trip to Spain was a step into the unknown for me. I had always had the stereotypical impression that is was all like Benidorm! I need not have worried. Casa de la Cuesta is in a perfect location situation just outside the friendly village of Santa Cruz which is around 9km from the picturesque town of Alhama de Granada. It is ideally located to visit the many 'attractions' nearby including the Alhambra in Granada , Lake Bermajales (great for swimming and hiring a boat), the gorge walk in Alhama, the resorts Nerja and Torre del Mar (which are not like Benidorm!) to name but a few. The villa itself had all the mod cons of home including stereo and a dvd player. The view from the villa was idyllic - we spent most nights with a drink in our hand watching the sun set over the hills. The best bit about the villa was the large pool which was exclusively for the use of guests. The children spent the best part of the holiday in there! The owners Anna and Andy couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect. We enjoyed our stay so much we plan to go back again next year!
“Home from home”
Casa la Cuesta is set in beautiful grounds the view is amazing. Anna & Andy are great hosts & have vast knowledge of the surrounding area they are always willing to give help & advise to make your trip even more enjoyable.. The accommodation is clean & comfortable & Anna & Andy provide delicious home cooked food if guests order it. The village of Santa Cruz is a short walk away & is. Great place to chill. The town of Alhama is lovely for shopping, coffee & tapas & has a great atmosphere in the evening. The whole experience is relaxing & the pool is lovely with great views. I would highly recommend this accommodation. I recommended it to my neighbours & they have just booked their 3rd visit in 12 months.
“Only full on meditation can equal the relaxing ambience of La Cuesta”
Back in 2014 we were advised by a neighbour (the owner's cousin) to visit la Cuesta because of it's rural, non touristic location and breathtaking scenery. So our first visit was in October 2014 and we weren't disappointed. The accommodation is well appointed, very clean and serves a self-catering purpose just right. If there is a need to eat out there are numerous restaurants and cafes in the nearby town of Alhama, which comes alive more in the evenings. Most tourist sites are an hour or so drive and the main highway is a 10 minute drive away and so has great access. If you fancy staying local just stock up at the supermarket in Loja, 20 minutes drive away. Spend some time chilling by the pool. My partner is a teacher and we visited during the half term, by the mid-week he could barely move as his relaxation level had hit the floor; we just sat on the veranda taking in the amazing views, listening to bird song and sleeping. Of course, Andy and Anna are great hosts; they'll either leave you to be or if you want company you couldn't get better party animals. We revisited again in April 2015 and also pencilled in October 2015. That might seem a lot but honestly we don't really see it as a holiday, just a great place to escape for a week long break.
“a wonderful holiday experience”
The welcome is always warm, the accommodation authentic and comfortable, the shower great!, the views stunning, the sun warm, the locality interesting, the food wonderful. With treasures like the Alhambra, fish restaurants in Torremalinos or local bars where they offer tapas within easy reach there is no excuse for boredom. A great place to have a holiday, with wonderful hosts for whom 'nothing is too much trouble' rings true.
“Just the place to relax and enjoy rural Spain”
Fantastic location with the most awesome view over rolling hills patchworked with olive trees. ideal place to relax where time seems to have not caught up yet. Goats still walk through the village at the end of the days grazing while you sit outside the local bar drinking and eating tapas. Andy, Anna, Holly ans Sam were fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. You must ask them to cook you pizzas from their own log fired oven on the patio.
