Situé dans les oliveraies avec le 'bingle-Bongle' douce de la chèvre troupeau à proximité Casa Los Linares est un rêve. Un Cortijo ou maison de campagne entièrement restaurée, il peut accueillir 9 et possède toutes les commodités que vous attendez d'une maison moderne. Espace intérieur est généreux - 4 zones de réception, dont l'un est une salle de jeux de 60 mètres carrés complets avec table de billard et un bar. A l'extérieur, une grande terrasse pour les chaises longues, plus une zone couverte pour se détendre à l'ombre et salle à manger al fresco, tout à la vue de la piscine de 15 mètres.

bien mais aucunes info locales le seul book concernait les réglements de la maison!!!
Pas tout à fait vrai, il y a une grande quantité de tracts dans la maison ainsi que des cartes de la région et plus loin tout avec des points d'intérêt. Le dossier d'information contient un lien vers le site web de l'Andalousie, qui contient également des informations sur tous les villages locaux.
J'aurais aimé que vous nous demandiez plus d'informations, je vous l'aurais fait remarquer avec plaisir. C'était agréable de vous rencontrer tous.
Not quite true, there is a huge amount of leaflets in the house plus maps of the local area and further afield all with points of interest. The information pack contains a link to the Andalusia web site which is full of information on all the local villages too.
I wish you had asked for more info, I would happily have pointed it all out to you. It was lovely meeting you all.
The pictures on this site do not do justice to the house. It is far larger than was expected and furnished in a comfortable, traditional style. Stepping into the entrance on arrival was a real treat but the bar and pool room were even better. Wifi, TV and DVD all worked well and were easy to operate. The outside space around the pool was just fantastic, plenty of lounging areas, a large table and a gas BBQ meant we ate outside every night. The mountain setting among the olive groves is lovely, it was just so peaceful, the silence only broken by the goat bells. Thanks to Claire for greeting us on arrival and explaining everything we needed to know. We had a fantastic week it was a shame we couldn't stay longer.
Thank you Dianne. I'm so glad you all enjoyed the house and it sounds like you made full use of the facilities lol. Yes it's a wonderful place for a chill out time with friends or family. Cxxx
We had the best time. Peaceful, beautiful, scenery, pool is exceptional and property, although in need of some tlc is ideal for families. We took 3 kids and Grandparents and there was plenty of room for all. The Grandparents struggled with the different floor levels as there are little steps everywhere, but it didn't affect the overall enjoyment of our holiday. Thank You Claire. Xx
Lovely quiet villa with great pool
This is a lovely quiet rural villa with plenty of space and a large pool which is the main attraction (although a bit cold). The rooms were all very clean and comfortable, the bathrooms newly updated for an old house and plenty of utensils in the kitchen. There is the added benefit of a games room with a pool table and very comfortable couches. The large clean Gas BBQ was also very good.
There were a couple of items we would recommend the owners taking care of....while the main TV had power, we were only able to watch DVDs as could not get any signal working and most of the remotes had no batteries. While there are also many CDs in the house, we did not find any device to play them. Having stayed in many villas, we also didnt find any visitors book which was a shame as prior guests always tend to give good advice and comments. There is a long dirt track to the entrance which is not unusual for rural villas so make sure to get really clear directions as its easily missed even when using the GPS coordinates supplied..
Overall a very enjoyable visit and would recommend for those who like a quiet rural retreat in very comfortable surroundings..
Beautiful, unusual, charming and challenging.
There is a great distance between "I loved it" and "not really." My family and I have wonderful memories of our two weeks in this truly unusual country home: A double elimination pool tournament, on-going chess and card games, morning pool-side yoga sessions, over the mountain hikes to Cortiijo las Piedras for coffee, dining outside every evening we were at home, reading.... and tons of pool activity. The wonderful surprise was the weather - hot days and cool evenings! And the views are stunning, specially as the sun hits them at the end of the day. Fabulous photo opportunities.
On the realistic side, you have to be prepared for awkward country issues. Constant need to dispose of garbage and recycling if you have a house full, deeply potted dirt roads (made good use of the car wash in Rute), very curvy mountain roads - great for a motorcycle! Sometimes loud farm activities that sounded too much like suburbia, but the charming clanging of goat bells as the herds climbed the mountain each evening and returned in the morning compensated for the annoying sounds.
Claire is a real asset for this property, although I disagree with some of the unrealistic pages of rules that we were supposed to follow. Many are 'understood' when living in a borrowed home. Some are crazy. The pool is a major attraction and they think no one is going to jump or dive in?!! With water that cold, I have no idea how else to bite the bullet. It provided us with hours of great entertainment. We are happy to have had this experience together.
Amazing scenery, great pool and house
We had a wonderful three weeks here, far from the madding crowd, and were just sad that our children and partners could join us for only one of the three weeks. The setting and the views are spectacular: this part of Andalucia, on the edge of a national park, is full of magnificent scenery and seems very light on tourists. The house is not all that easy to find, but that, for us, was part of its charm. You're 600m down a dirt track in the middle of an olive grove (everywhere in this part of the world is olive groves) and next to a goat farm.
The house was indeed very spacious, clean and well equipped, with quirky but welcome extras like the bar, pool table and daybeds. (I have to admit we did sleep outdoors under the stars one very warm night.) Our only criticism was the lack of aircon in the annex – something I think the property owner should remedy for next year, as sleeping there is difficult when it's hot. I almost reduced my star rating because of that, but decided that overall this was such a great place as to merit 5 stars.
The very best thing for me was the 15m non-chlorine pool - probably the best house pool we've had. I managed 1km most days (70 lengths by my estimation), if that's not showing off too much.
Claire was a very efficient manager and responded very promptly to any concerns; eg a small plumbing issue resulted in a plumber on site within hours. And Francisco and his wife Toni who maintain the house and pool were delightful and offered a good chance to practise my ropey Spanish.
Thank you for the lovely review Wendy. I've had mixed views an the annex re aircon, some say essential other say with the windows open it's fine. It is something we have been looking into after now 2 very hot long summers. It is very likely it will be installed for next season. It is a wonderful house and I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves. Cx
