“Perfect villa with wonderful owners”
Reviewed 29 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Inland villa away from overcrowded resorts 4 km from nearest town, 30 from Ardales lakes or climbing in El chorro and 50 km from Malaga. Beautiful villa with every home comfort you may need (including electric blankets for winter months). Lovely terrace with pool and friendly dogs to play with.

Sue and Miguel are wonderful hosts. Welcoming, friendly and full of ideas for day trips.

A perfect location for climbers, bikers, hikers or a family wanting to relax by the pool.

I hope we can stay at casa sampo next time we visit the area.

Thanks for a wonderful holiday

“Perfect for our climbing trip”
Reviewed 28 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Only thirty minutes drive to El Chorro and forty minutes to the great Deplomilandia!
We've done the Camping climbing trips in the past but over the last few years we like to stay somewhere nicer. Casa Sampo is awesome, we'd somtimes get back early enough to enjoy the last of the day's sunshine by the pool with a glass of Rioja.
Our hosts are just the friendliest and most welcoming people you'll ever meet. We are looking forward to seeing Sue and Miguel on our next trip.
The villa has a well equipped kitchen, lots of room and would easily sleep six people.
For all you adventurous people, the Camino Del Ray (the Kings Walkway) has been rebuilt and is due open in Febuary, it should be on everyone's tick list, don't forget your camera!

“excellent location for climbing at El Chorro and exploring the surrounding area.”

person found this review helpful

My friend and I recently stayed at Casa Sampo for nine nights. The purpose of our trip was to climb at El Chorro and to explore the surrounding area on rest days. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the accommodation' comfy beds, spacious lounge/ dining area and a nice clean bathroom with luxurious towels supplied. The accommodation offers adequate space for 6 people, is nice and peaceful and a great place to relax after a days climbing or exploring Malaga, Granada etc. It is only around 30 minutes drive to El Chorro and a similar time to the coast. Sue and Miguel were very helpful with advice but also happy to leave you to your own devices. Sue also cooks excellent two course dinners on request, I fully recommend both the quantity and quality. So if your trip is for climbing or just relaxing and exploring Casa Sampo makes the ideal base.

“Good accommodation, lovely hosts”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My wife, son and I stayed at Casa Sampo for a week in October. The purpose of the holiday was to explore the rock climbing around El Chorro gorge. The accommodation was lovely and will easily take a group of up to six. Sue an Miguel were great hosts and they and the accommodation lived up to other reviews. It is a good place to go, you will not be disappointed.

From a climbing perspective, the villa is about 30 minutes south of El Chorro, it takes about 35 minute to reach Turon East and West via Ardales and 40 minutes to reach Displomandia.

While you have to drive to reach El Chorro, it isn't much of a disadvantage and you are well placed for rest day trips elsewhere. Malaga is surprisingly good, the old town, museums and castle being well worth a visit.

“Superb Holiday!”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We've just returned from a wonderfully relaxing & enjoyable week at Casa Sampo.
We found the villa easily as the directions were excellent, a great start! Sue was lovely, helpful, accommodating and friendly from start to finish of our stay (we didn't meet her husband as he was away). Nothing was too much trouble, & the lemon cake we'd read about was gorgeous & welcoming!
The accommodation was excellent, facilities superb, area stunning & peaceful.
I had some lovely long chats with Sue, one or two over a glass of wine, wonderful, while my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the company of the gorgeously irrepressible Mulungu, TK the cat, and lovely Mufuta...
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Casa Sampo to anyone. Thank you Sue for making our holiday so, so lovely. We went intending (and needing) a complete rest, & that's exactly what we got!
