"Perfect location for climbers! Some of the climbing areas are in the walking distance, other you can reach in a few minutes driving. This place is also nice for resting days as you can use “your own” terrace, swimming pool or barbeque place in the garden. "
"Because of the natural park which surrounds the villa, we got to see wild goats on the hill tops and even eagles. On one occasion we actually saw four eagles scouring the hills for prey and all from the comfort of our poolside chairs. Amazing!"
"The area around the Finca is very beautiful. The damn at El Chorro creates a dramatic James Bond villain setting at the bottom of the quite awesome El Chorro Gorge. National Parks surround this area and you can pootle around the winding roads discovering new little places to drive/walk to.
Beyond the gorge is a set of reservoir/lakes near Ardales with a few restaurants dotted around. All good little walks - nothing too strenuous or you could take it more seriously if you have the rights shoes, which I don't. It's very well placed for visiting the rest of Andalucia - over the years we've had day trips driving across hills and plains to Seville, Cordoba, Jerez, Cadiz, Tarifa, Grenada... all manageable."
"Despite their honest recommendations regarding local restaurants, we never found any other restaurant which compared to Rocabella for quality and good value."
"It would be remiss of me not to mention the excellent restaurant, which was only a short stroll (approx 5 minutes) from our villa and where we enjoyed several evenings with absolutely great food which was always served with a smile and which was unbelievably good value.
You must try the Sangria which is made on the spot for you and the likes of which we have not tasted anywhere else in Spain."
