the view, magnificent!

Posted May 2, 2017
Pros: the view and grounds.
Cons: it could have been cleaner. The kitchen, if you could call it that is poorly equipped, and water pressure is poor. Heat only comes on at 7pm!
Location: very hard to find, but beautiful vista's. Nothing much to do around there but enjoy looking at mother earth. The village is very quaint!
The room itself was nothing to get excited about, and could have been cleaner for sure. But the view makes up for that in spades! It was incredible. The road to the place is scary, and our gps didn't even know how to find it, but worth the stress of driving up there! The little village below is great fun too.

Charming Rural Homes near White Towns of Spain.

Posted Oct 26, 2014
Pros: The rooms are beautifully decorated, views marvelous, kitchen had everything, hotel staff wanting everything to be perfect........and it was.
Cons: This hotel is a bit isolated which to me was the charm. However, you will not walk outside and sit down in a cafe. One must drive for that.
Location: If you want to feel like you live in one of Spain's white hill towns, this if the place. Nearby are the other hill towns and Pileta Cave.
Staying in Casas Rurales was one of my most charming travel experiences. The private house was decorated in whitewashed cream furniture, had rounded soaring ceilings, walls painted a beautiful blue and cream, and reddish purple accents. I was in heaven. I had my own private patio and locking gate. The view was spectacular........hills, trees, luscious plants and blue skies. The houses are located next to the immaculate white hill town of El Gastor. There you can find restaurants, town square, lovely church, museum, and charm at every turn of the winding streets. It is also a short drive to the Pileta Cave which has Paleolithic drawings.

Great place but air con not great

Posted Jul 14, 2013
Pros: Great views and lovely location miles from anywhere.
Cons: The air con wasn't working properly, so we were very hot.
Location: Although described as Ronda, this was actually 33km away, but we didn't mind as the location was remote, quiet and beautiful.
We loved this place. It was very remote and had beautiful views. The only downside was that it is 33km from Ronda and that the air con in the room didn't work very well, so we were trying to sleep in 30 degrees. Otherwise a lovely place.

Your own place in the Andalucian mountains!

Posted Aug 2, 2017
Pros: Private terrasse and a nice house which also was very clean.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind (except maybe that I should improve my Spanish skills - but we figured it all out thanks to the friendly hosts).
Location: Natural parks, hiking, driving in the beautiful andalucian country side, bird watching (a lot of eagles!), historical sights etc.
We loved every second in this holiday home. The house is located together with 3 other small houses uphill and and secluded from the other parts of casa rurales. The place is approx. 3 km from the small town of El Gastor at the end of a rough gravel road. The area is primarily dominated by nature and a bit of farming. We where given detailed driving instructions which was a nice help and better than our GPS :-) The small house consists of one large room with bed, living space and kitchen in 3 sections and a bathroom. Most importantly it has its own private terrasse/patio with splendid views over the mountains and the pool. The pool is shared between the 4 small houses which gave our 5-year old plenty of time to play. The location is perfect for rest and relaxation but is also a good starting point for drives to Ronda (30 km) and the beautiful white villages (fx Zahara, Grazalema and Olvera). The drive from Malaga Airport is less than 2 hours.

Naturaleza y tranquilidad

Posted Jul 1, 2017 on Hotels
Ha sido una estancia perfecta, para desconectar. La piscina, la casita, el entorno todo perfecto, el camino de tierra para llegar no invita a salir así que pasábamos la mañana visitando pueblos o por la sierra y después de llegar por la tarde se está de lujo en la piscina. Hay una tranquilidad absoluta.

Bon séjour mais difficile d'accès et loin de tout

Posted May 7, 2012 on Hotels
Le cottage est très agréable s'il fait beau et cela a été le cas. Le personnel est agréable. Cependant, le cottage est loin de tout et accessible par un long chemin en terre qui ne doit pas être praticable en temps de pluie. Et de nuit, je pense qu'il n'est pas possible de trouver le cottage si l'on n'est pas venu auparavant (pas de route signalée, pas d'adresse - le GPS ne peu aider dans ce cas). Si l'on vient pour une seule journée (comme nous l'avons fait), cela nous a généré surtout une perte de temps. Pour une semaine, cela vaut le coup mais utiliser à fond le réfrigérateur pour éviter de se déplacer

Los Algarrobales n'est pas un hôtel mais un domaine où l'on peut louer des petites maisons. Nous étions dans la partie appelée "El Paraiso" : 6 petites maisons mitoyennes avec chacune une grande terrasse avec une vue magnifique sur la vallée et une piscine commune. Un site totalement enchanteur, à 3 km d'un joli petit village blanc, El Gastor. Le domaine est accessible par un chemin de terre très praticable en voiture, Los Algarrobales est un havre de paix pour se reposer autour de la piscine. Les gens sur place sont charmants et font tout pour que l'on se sente bien. Un site que je recommande pour tous ceux qui aiment les endroits isolés et calmes.
