“Best vacation ever!!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We rented the villa in the first week of September and it was the best vacation ever. Carina and Jesper were really friendly and greated us like old friends. During our stay they were always on-hand if needed being only a text or a phonecall away.

The villa was well equipped with all kitchen utensils needed for home cooking, plastic glasses for use poolside, wifi connection, sat. tv and air con in all bedrooms. Washing machine makes it possible to travel light and there was even a hairdryer and iron. The villa is decorated with Maroccan inspiration. It's in two levels with two bedrooms and one bathroom in the basement and kitchen, living area, one bathroom and one bedroom with in-suite on the gorund level. The fourth bedroom is an anex with in-suite. The villa is old with massive stone walls that keeps it relatively cool in summer and the atmosphere is cosy and relaxed. Dont expect bright, modern interior as this is rural Spain, but everything is clean and tidy.

Extensive terraces around the villa with lots of both sun and shade. Great breakfast terrace outide the kitchen door with fantastic views. Large daybed for mid-day fiestas, poolside shower, bar and barbecue area with outdoor fridge was the place to gather for a cold drink in the afternoon and poolside dining table made a great spot for late night dinners.

Los Romanes is a 5-10 mins. walk away. There are two small supermarkets selling all essentials and a small shop selling vegtables plus a small bar and a restaurant. The supermarkets are open Mon.-Sat. from around 8am-14pm and again from 5pm-20pm. Buy bread at the one selling cigarettes :) We never really found out the opening hours for the vegtables shop.
Try the restaurant El Charco, their leg of lam is to die for (Don't have "white fish in sauce" though) and on your way home from dinner stop at the small wooden cabin, on the small square selling cold drinks, for a night cap. If there isn't room at the tables the friendly owner will bring more tables and chairs for you. You can buy cold beers and all sorts of long drinks.
Also try the camping restaurant at Viñuela Camping. They do all kinds of barbecues but pre-order their suckling pig, it's the best we ever had. It's a bit expensive but it's well worth it and it easily satisfied seven hungry foodies even though the owner said there was food for six persons. We also had fried potatoes and salad with the meat and finished with amazing desserts.

The location as amazingly rural and yet in walking distance to small village with most amenities. The coast is only a 20 mins. drive away and here you'll find large shopping centres, nightlife, bars and restaurants. You can rent a sunbed on the beach at Torre Del Mar or just relax at one of the many chiringuitos. Try grilled rosada (fish) seasoned with garlic or the sardines grilled over coals right at the beach.

Our stay at Cortijo Barranquero was all we had dreamed of and more than we hoped for as the pictures don't do the villa and area credit. We will be back :)

“home from home with spectacular views and sunshine!”
Reviewed 2 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

this villa has it all.... rustic look and genuine feel of Spain. perfectly decorated with very well thought out areas to chill out , sunbathe, socialise and have fun. it is very well equipped and clean. close by is Los Romanes a quaint village with all amenities, Miguels is a must... you will be very well looked after with gorgeous food and very reasonable prices. Comares is another lovely village and has to be seen to be believed, well worth the drive and little walk when at the top of the village. too much to write in one review. highly recommended both area and villa. we've already enquired for next year!!! carina and jesper are very lovely people and very easy to deal with and very welcoming. thank you and see you soon.

“A Real Wow! of a property”
Reviewed 30 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The moment you enter the property,it it one big Wow!
The setting is amazing,with a wonderful vista across to Comares perched on the hill opposite.If you have come on holiday for total peace and quiet,then this is the place.The thought that has gone into the furnishing of both inside and outside of the property is self evident.Wonderful shaded areas to relax in,comfortable loungers to sun-bathe on..with the added bonus of towels to use for the beach.
The large terrace to eat at ,with a wonderfully refreshing breeze.A kitchen with as many plates,dishes and bowls that you could possibly need for a large party of nine.
We were a party of 2 grandparents,2 daughters & 2 son-in-laws and 3 grandchildren.
