“Found purely by coincidence, but what a find!”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Hubby and I were on a 'road to nowhere' road trip as we like to do at least once a year.
This time, our faithful -ridiculously small for South African standards - rental car brought us from Paris all the way to Southern Spain, a territory pretty unknown to both of us.
Although I usually always check Tripadvisor to look for accomodation, we ended up in Jimena without a plan, and the couple of properties we had tried to contact were all full (the area is well known for senior Brits and other Europeans to spend the winter). However, we both really felt like staying at least for one night in this quaint village.
By pure coincidence, the local supermercado owner called a friend, who turned out to be the owner of this magnificent well hidden hacienda...and we ended up, lucky us, in a little secluded paradise, yet only a couple of minutes walk away from the centre of town.
The one night turned into 4...would have loved to stay longer but sadly our schedule didn't allow it.
If you're looking for privacy and paradise, this IS the place.
We stayed in the main house (there is also a smaller accomodation available which would have largely suited us, but for the same -reasonable- rate we were allowed to stay in the bigger house which has a bigger garden area and pool as well) and as such only used it as self catering, but one night we had friends from Northern Spain visiting and we asked the owners to provide us with tapas platters (for a supplement of course, but again, reasonable prices, couldn't have done it, and not in this quality, myself) which were absolutely to die for, I'm still trying to work of the kilos but man, was it good!
Although we usually never go back 'roadtripping' to the same area twice, we both so loved this area and especially this insider tip accomodation, that we're already thinking of going back, but in (European) summer this time (wouldn't be too bad to escape the rainy Cape winter)....so....watch this space for a second review in a couple of months!
