"It has been a pleasure visiting your house, in which we spent the summer holidays in my childhood, together with my parents, Pedro Barrera and Teresa Lopez Clúcheis, with my brothers and the rest of the family. I love the way you have preserved the place, modest, the way my parents were."
From María-José Barrera, daughter of the celebrated Pedro Barrera (bullfighter).
"We have enjoyed our stay in this quiet, rural landscape, which is very beautiful. The hosts, Martyn and Denise, with their superb meals, have completed our stay."
"A haven of peace, quietness an excellent retreat, without forgetting the superb cuisine (your orange marmalade is great!) Thank you, and see you soon, I hope, for another holiday."
"Beautifully renovated Cortijo surrounded by almond groves - what a beautiful place! With only 5 bedrooms it was quiet and relaxing with a lovely pool area and the owners were very attentive providing afternoon tea by the pool. The food in the evening was excellent and freshly cooked and we all had a great time."
