Our second fortnight at gorgeous Casa Sampo. Was such a relaxing holiday but we also managed to walk the Caminito del Rey, the Rio di Chillar, El Torcal, the Lakes, Malaga, Mijas and a few days in Cordoba. Brilliant location to get around Andalucia and only 30 minutes from Malaga airport and short drive to supermarkets, restaurants etc. Totally relaxing at the apartment, beautiful pool and terraces and shady area to escape the boiling sun! So wonderful sipping wine and admiring the wonderful views of the mountains and olive, lemon and orange groves that surround the Casa. Sue and Miguel are fabulous, welcoming, considerate and discreet hosts and are full of wonderful ideas of where to visit and eat and kindly left a delicious homemade lemon cake and wine for our arrival. The friendly dogs Malungo and Mafuta kept our teenage boys occupied for hours. Would highly recommend this holiday home. We will definitely be going back for a third trip very soon.

“A marvellous find!”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Casa Sampo is a real gem in the heart of Andalucía. It's a wonderful house with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Spotlessly fresh and clean, stunning gardens and views, brilliant pool and shaded relaxation area and the two dogs ( and cat!) provided endless entertainment for our boys. Miguel and Sue were the best hosts I believe Spain could ever hope to offer. They had delicious cake and wine waiting for us upon arrival and were more than willing to suggest ideas for great days out for us all. Miguel helped me with a puncture repair in nearby Pizarra and Sue even managed to inspire the boys to swim without armbands and make them swimming certificates! There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area with major points of interest being no more than 30 mins away. Highly recommended- we will definitely be back!

“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.”
Reviewed 9 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

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.
