We have just spent 7 nights at Itrabo Hills. It is a gem - a perfect getaway. We booked meals for 3 nights and wish we had asked for 7 because the food is outstanding. Peter is an excellent host. It was no problem for us but it is worth noting that you have to leave your car a few minutes away. We hope to return!
Having just spent three nights at Itrabo Hills, I can only echo the consistently high praise from previous postings. Intimate in scale, but a delightful base for heading up into the hills or down to the coast. We dined in on all three nights, and the food is as good as everyone says. We particularly appreciated the fact that this appears to be the only accommodation for visitors in a resolutely untouristy town - so great if you want to really settle into the Andalucian lifestyle.
When we booked our stay we had a good feeling about Itrabo hills, we definately weren't dissapointed in fact it was even better.
Even our teenage children loved it and would have been quite content to stay a week even though we were only there for a few days.
Debbie and Peter were very helpful and as other guests have already mentioned the food was really great, Peter really is a fantastic cook.
Definately a refreshing break during our 3 week holiday in Spain, we hope to come back again in the spring or autumn when it's not too hot then we can see more of the beautiful countryside.
We've already passed the word on to friends about our experience here.
My partner and I were on a Spanish honeymoon (from Boston) in August. Of all the hotels we stayed in during our 12-day adventure, Itrabo Hills was by far the BEST!! The hospitality, food and room with a view (and plunge pool!) were to DIE for. Absolutely amazing. We really enjoyed one of the recommended day trips outside of the small village of Itrabo. Here is a short-list of my favorite parts of our stay:
-The extensive DVD collection right outside our door!
-The food. Ahhhh the food. Peter is an amazing and attentive chef.
-Waking up to see the sun rising on the vineyard outside of our balcony.
-Hanging out with their loveable dogs.
-Listening to the sounds of Itrabo from the balcony (including a festival practice performance by the local marching band)
-Meeting a wonderful Italian couple on vacation
I feel very lucky to have this memory and I can't wait to go back.

Superlatives abound when describing our stay at Itrabo Hills. From the very first moment as we wound our way up the hills to Itrabo and catching glimpse of the village nestled in the hills, both Sirah and I realised it was going to be something special.
Peter came out to greet us and led us to his lovely home and you can see that both he and Debbie have paid the utmost attention to creating a little of the Andalucia of old in their home with furnishings and fittings brought across the straits from Morocco.
On the very first night we were treated to Peter's cullinary skills which far surpassed that of anything we ate during the remainder of our one week stay in the region. I can heartily recommend the Gazpacho and the Dorado fillet. Peter had also kindly managed to source some halal meat for us, which was a great suprise as I had become accustomed to not eating meat when staying in hotels in Europe.
Peter was also a great help in directing us to local walks in the region and the Junta del los rios was breathtakingly beautiful and an ideal walk for an August day in the Spanish sun, with clear pools to dip into and being rewarded witha twenty metre waterfall at the end.
Itrabo is well located with it being only a fifteen minute drive to the coast and a fifty minute drive into historic Granada, allowing us to have a varied and interesting holiday experience.
We both hope to go back soon perhaps when the weather is a little cooler.
