Family from Glasgow, United Kingdom Jul 2018

We had a superb stay in this beautiful home in a stunning location. Set up in the hills with views to the coast it is the type of Spain we love. Close to the beautiful small village of Iznate where we had some superb food yet only 25 minutes to the coast, Almayate being a favourite for a quiet lunch and swim.
The house is spacious, cool and very well equipped. We loved the fairy lights and star gazing at night. The pool is glorious and the brand new wet room is great. The road to the property is perfectly accessible in a normal car and is as you'd expect from campo roads, how else do you get the stunning vistas!
Julian provided excellent information in advance of our stay and we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Julian!

The villa has fantastic views from up high in the hills over the rolling hills, valley and sea. The colours change from dawn to dusk and there is always something to look at and absorb oneself in. We enjoyed ourselves immensely at Casa Escondida, beginning the holiday with trips to the nearby white towns, local beaches, villages, the botantical gardens and Malaga (we stumbled on a procession at the cathedral which was amazing) but then ended up for the last few days just staying put at the villa by the pool, lounging on the sunbeds and sitting on the chairs on the verandah. It is a perfect place to get away from the bustle of modern life, become completely absorbed in holiday reading, plan great trips into the mountains you never quite make, drink bottles of local wine and eat home barbeequed food by candlelight and watch the many solar-powered twinkly lights come on at twilight - all very relaxing. We also discovered a great herb garden at the back that we used to adorn our salad each day. And the bougainvillea was second to none.

Family from London, United Kingdom Aug 2016

This was our second stay at Casa Escondida, and it was just as beautiful as we'd remembered !
The addition of wifi and the new wet room were a bonus.
Its the perfect spot to unwind and enjoy time with the family, only 10-15 min drive to the beach and shops, what more could you ask for?
Thanks to Julian for sharing this little piece of heaven

Thank your for opening our eyes to a Spanish holiday with a difference. We have had many holidays in Spain, but always in busy resorts on the coast. Last year we thought we would try a more tranquil holiday, and your casa lived up to all our expectations. Just a nice distance from the coast, should we want to go to the beach, although must say we were more than happy to chill by the pool, and just pleasing ourselves. We enjoyed our stay so much, we are hoping to bring our friends next year. Kind Regards John and Barbara Nunn

Dear Julian I would just like to let you know how wonderful our holiday was at your Caseta. The remote setting of the property is absolutely wonderful and the stunning view overlooking the valley and out to the sea in the distance is just what we were hoping for. My wife was really taken with the shaded covered terraces and the wonderful flowers and shrubs that you have surrounded the property with. The tinkling of the goats bells as they go out to forage for the day was really the icing on the cake as this was about the only thing apart from the Catalan farmer tending his vegetables and grapes, that we were aware of. This is what a REAL Spanish holiday was about. Once again many thanks for the use of your Caseta. We shall let a few of our close friends know about this wonderful jewel. Kind Regards Graham and Sally Webber

The Villa is our family holiday home, we have spent the last 10 years improving it to the standard we would expect, but it is not run as a business, just to help us cover some of our costs.
The basic rule is there are no rules, just chill out and relax.

Hope you enjoy the place as much as we do.
