The arrival happened as was written several times, perfect. The owner and his wife are a very friendly and obliging couple. What we can continue to experience during the 3 weeks. The contact was as if we had already made several there. This holiday was the top for us on the whole. We think it will be difficult for us to have that quality at the next destination.
The contact with Antonio the owner was very pleasant. When we had to wait for Antonio for about 10 minutes in the gas station, the friendly staff already reassured us about the further course. The Villa was perfect, very cozy and especially very cool when it is 40 degrees outside. The pool is well maintained and still very fresh. The scenery from the villa was beautiful. Super panorama. If you can not unwind here you have a problem. Three sturdy air conditioners that keep everything nice and cool in the house. Smart TV to watch Flemish series on YouTube in the evening. Internet works better than at home. A kitchen where you have all basic appliances. And last but not least, bedrooms with good beds and a handy bathroom. But the pinnacle of the house was the round stone table next to the barbecue, which is so cozy to eat with 4 people!
Perfection, such a lovely house to stay. Great outside seating area and swimming pool. Beautiful views over the mountains and a nice garden around. Very quiet. Very clean and comfortable. Owners speak only spanish but we managed to understand eachother and they are very kind and welcoming. Close to Malaga, Cordoba and Granada, which are all very interesting cities to visit. Hiking trails in the area too.
Host Antonio is very friendly and very hospitable. He and his wife received us on arrival, everything was clearly explained how everything works. Because we ourselves indicated that we wanted to take care of the plants and provide the garden with water, he visited us twice in the 2 weeks we were there for it. swimming pool, otherwise he comes every 3 days to take care of the plants and the garden. The house is located at an altitude of 800 meters between different olive farms on a narrow road where you cannot pass each other without having to turn both away. The view is phenomenal, you can certainly look 30 km away! And "in the evening you have the most beautiful starry sky. Almost every day a herd of goats come along with a shepherd which is very nice to see. Around the house you have mountains and valleys full of olive trees. The house is in an agricultural area with the associated sounds (think of tractors, watch dogs, sheep with bells), which we do not find disturbing, and further silence! You have no immediate neighbors, and therefore complete privacy, the house is typically a Spanish family house and the interior as well, but because you are almost always outside, it is not disturbing, but good beds and 2 bathrooms, one of which has a small shower, you cannot shower in succession because the boiler is then empty for hot water but if you an hour wait then the 2nd person can also take a spacious shower. The kitchen is complete in Spanish and the swimming pool is great for cooling. The air conditioning in the various rooms works great, which is very nice at night. easy all day long The terrace is equipped with many plants with a sitting area and a stone dining area, and there are 6 sun beds, next to the house is a covered barbecue that works very well. In the garden there are various trees such as walnuts, figs, almond and lemon, which you can use if it is fruitful. You can visit the big cities but keep it stretched

We were warmly welcomed and shown around by Antonio and his wife. The cottage was exactly as in the pictures of Belvilla, so no surprises. Everything you need is available. The cottage is in the middle of the olive groves with a beautiful view of the mountains. Because it is located higher (10 kilometers from the town of Loja, via a winding road to the top) it is wonderfully quiet.The swimming pool is a plus and very well cared for (although not suitable for very small children who cannot swim) This accommodation is ideal for people looking for peace and relaxation It is within a reasonable distance of sights (Granada, Málaga, Cordoba and Ronda) and is an ideal place to relax after a visit. We had a fantastic holiday, partly due to the good care of Antonio (including a bottle of wine at the reception).
Very friendly reception by antonio. The house and pool were according to the description with div. fruit and walnuts from the garden. Fully equipped. Environment nice and quiet and especially nice weather. There is plenty to see if you do not mind driving a bit.
Beautiful house with everything "on and on", as described on the website. Very nice and helpful owner. After 1 time driving to Loja you will not notice that it is still more than 10 km. An oasis of peace in a beautiful setting.
The reception by Antonio is very warm and we were spoiled several times with local specialties, our daughters were also spoiled. An ideal place to go on holiday with a big dog, the whole domain is closed. Everything you need is there. You're in the middle of nowhere, wonderful to relax. Granada is definitely worth a visit. A top experience!
Van Der Lingen
Andalousie is a wonderful province of Spain where there is a lot to see. Cordoba, Granada, Sierra Nevada and Gibraltar are worth a visit!
very friendly people, were well received by Antonio
Fine, good reception, matched well with the expectations.
The arrival was certainly good, we could already in the house and received a good bottle of wine from the owner before the start of our holiday. The accommodation is certainly good, fully equipped. Good beds cozy living area and a complete keuken.De location of the house is fantastic, nice and quiet and a great view of the area. For the groceries you have to drive a bit but you know that in advance, the road to Loja is great to drive.
Great cottage, especially if you like peace. Beautiful pool and terrace, super nice owner. Wifi interrupted a couple of minutes, but the speed is fine. Above expectation, given its location in the middle of nowhere. Perhaps it will be slow to upgrade the display tube TV with DVD and satellite receiver to a smart TV so people can watch their own Netflix. But in the end you are mostly outside, so no big problem.
Prima, according to brochure expectations.
Beautiful Spanish Finca and a beautiful location. Well maintained and very friendly owner.
Received by a very friendly owner who escorted us to the house. The house itself was a paradise on earth, heerllijk quiet. The pool is lovely, albeit small (4 * 7 m). Tenants must realize that the house is located 12 km away from Loja, reaching a good, but not too wide road.
Beautiful location, friendly reception by Antonio, very helpful with any questions or, for example, a slightly cold shower.
Since we arrived very late on Saturday night and most supermarkets closed on Sundays, the owner had arranged for a breakfast. What service! Despite the fact that he speaks no English and little Spanish we managed to communicate. He was very helpful and did his best but our using it to make sense to maken.De were delicious, the hot shower was quite cold quickly if you want to shower after the other.
Holiday Olla de Graos selected on the basis of the photo "s our expectations were exceeded at the website.Bij arrival. Truly a wonderful environment surrounded by olive groves with a authentuiek Spanish house and a great garden with vruchetnbomen.Zwembad was neat and crisp bright water for sometimes brrodnodige verkoeling.Ontvangst Antonio was incredibly hospitable, even though he does not speak English point we still can communicate reasonably with the few Spanish words from our side and hands.
Wonderfully quiet in this house. Lovely pool. At times, what little shade on terrace. Location is completely free, between fields of olive trees, a 20-minute drive from Loja. Jose Anton is very friendly and helpful. Speaks only Spanish. The house is spotless and luxurious.
Very nice host, clean house, beautiful garden and terrace, beautiful views, great pool. The private house is surrounded by the olive groves. The homeowner checked and cleaned twice weekly bathing. Highly recommended for everyone!
the cottage with garden, patio and pool deserve ten out of ten for both indoor and outdoor. made beds, towels, everything is there. welcome and care by the owner. the language is a tip, antonio does not speak English, but is very good will to make himself understood. the location is very quiet with a nice view over the hills. we made the trip by car, it is good to do if you take there time. fly and rent a car is a good option. Of course we have made beautiful rides in the area, but for us the landscape a bit much of the same, viz. hills and olive groves. the Alhambra in Granada was very worth it! however advance booking as it gets crowded.
Van Den Burg
The hospitality of Antonio and his beautiful, in the mountains of loja located casa we were able to fully enjoy our vacation. The location is a dream for those seeking peace and both the casa as well as the interior and garden with private pool leave nothing to be desired. Recommended!
Two weeks lived outside. Enjoyed the cozy terrace, a lovely swimming pool and the beautiful view. Great places visited in the area. Alhambra was fantastic and easily accessible. Antonio the owner was very friendly and helpful. Occasionally exotic fruit from the garden. Good beds with air conditioning in bedrooms. Everything very clean. Had two wonderful weeks with our family.
Olla de Graos lies in the field among olive groves. 15 minutes drive from Loja, in the hills. It is completely isolated, so you must love absolute tranquility. We do that and that made it a wonderful stay. The house and pool are fine and the support of José Antonio fine. He speaks only Spanish (and the Andalusian variety). By the latter I still had occasional trouble to follow him, but he's very kind and patient. It is there hot in July and August.
Cottage is beautiful. To 12 km into the mountains from the village of Loja, but doable. About 15 minutes. All major cities easily reached.
To 12:00 o'clock already arrived at the key address. Antonio was called and arrived within 20 minuten.Hij were hospitable and drove us to his house ontvangen.Fles wine was already klaar.Het is a real Spanish house and it is indeed the end of center af.Het cottage has beautiful garden and is completely enclosed by fence and gate. You better get your groceries at first before getting the key. Quietly situated With us came every day the Shepherd 2 x along with sheep / or geiten.We have made many trips to Ronda, Granada, Seville, Sierra Nevada, Cordoba .Antonio came every 3 days by to plant and care for the pool clean them.It is a kind man. He speaks only Spanish. Still, we managed to have a look together .We app.op phone for translation .He has surprised us several times with cakes and biscuits and then we went home we got a bottle of olive oil .Wifi was present but we only have 5 Days gehad.Al good internet in all a super beautiful vacation spot where we have been 2 weeks with lots of fun and sun. Highly recommended.
The location of Loja in relation to the major cities in Andalusia is ideal. 2h of Seville, Cordoba 1h45, 1h15 from Granada and 1 hour from Malaga ... Excellent base for day trips! Cottage itself is 20min drive from Loja off center, in the mountains. Great views and extremely quiet. Pool, with vines overgrown terrace, kitchen, lounge, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Ideal for with toddlers. On the other hand you must of course the mountain on before going to the store ...
A must for anyone seeking peace and quiet in a vakantie.Onthaal was good and Antonio is very vriendelijk.Hier get me and my wife one of the following years definitely come back.
We, family with two teenagers, have had a wonderful week in the Olla Graos. It is centrally located, making trips to Granada, Malaga and the Costa Tropical to do good. You can also visit Sevilla as a day trip, but that is a little further afield. The reception by Antonio was extremely cordial that he did not speak English (and we no Spanish) speaking showed barely a problem. The cottage is cozy, fully equipped, especially the outdoor terrace is a paradise. Everything was neat and clean and a little problem with a leaking air conditioning was spot remedied by Antonio. Excellent beds, there is now the Internet and facilities washing machine, dishwasher, oven, barbecue are all present and working prima.De location among olive groves and without a car you are isolated and so that is not an option. Loja is 12 mile drive through the mountains, but with a minute or 15 to 20 you spend in the grocery store. All in all, highly recommended, both in comfort and in terms of environment.
It was just fantastic! Lovely pool, where you can cool properly. Beautiful terrace with beautiful views, fabulous sun terrace! Our children sat all day in the pool. Good location also go visit the Alhambra in Granada. Cottage is well away from shops, etc. But we did not mind, we therefore wanted a peaceful holiday. Antonio is really super!
Had a great stay. Antonio is a caring and gracious host. The cottage is well equipped and the combination of pool and patio area is in one word awesome. A lovely place to relax and at the same time an excellent base for visiting Granada and the coast. You come here as a family really together. Olla de Graos is really a must.
This was a super holiday, antonio is a very kind man. every three days, he came by to see if everything was all right, he had always called popcorn. He has also given tis good to tasty to eat, something the reception was very good and the house was super. it is a village where you really have to know the language as English or French do not understand them. the location is very quiet and the view is beautiful here, we will certainly go again.
detached house with friendly hostess. Ideal for shorter trips along the coast or inland, pool is OK and you can also BBQ. there is always a place for shade. 've Also play golf nearby. Points for improvement, there is no wifi, tv too small, and no air conditioning.
We have three weeks had a top holiday. A friendly welcome in a clean house, with all modern conveniences. Lounge, sunbeds and a lovely pool. There is also wifi. Tonio was very helpful and he surprised us every time he came clean with a treat the pool. Communication is difficult, however, since he only speaks Spanish, but with hands and feet, we came a long way. The only downside is that it is about 20. Minutes of Loja.
On the first day we heard about four hours a swelling sound of bubbles. When we looked over the wall behind the pool, where we saw the shepherd with his herd of goats. The goats were past our house upstairs, back to the barn.
Very friendly owner, good tips to eat well located to the beautiful nature Sierra Nevada to go and see beautiful! Delicious paella for Nice pool or even cold.
The location of this house is both unique and beautiful love for those who are looking for peace and nature. The view is phenomenal, the sheep with bell around their neck next to the garden and to be seen. No tourists in the remotest For people who like to walk, love peace and nature, ideal. The owner, Antonio is also a treasure. We arrived in the middle of the night to that was no problem and he also had a breakfast laid out for us, without which we had requested. In the middle of the week he came again long to clean the pool and he again had sweets for the children. Granada and Malaga visit an hour's drive, so it is too.
In September \\ / October carries a walnut tree beautiful Fr ࿌ hte - ready for harvest. Remember home to a great holiday.
Our second time in the Olla Graos was delicious again. All peace and luxury on top of the mountain, with views on all sides and at the same time you are in a quarter the mountain highway heading for visits to Granada, Malaga, Cordoba and Anqueterra.
The house is very cozy, cozy and fully equipped. The area is quiet and there is zeeeer privacy. from this home are the big cities like to visit., Granada, Cordoba and rondo fine
There was just no internet. The owner of the house further afield was most friendly, great, great.
A very friendly owner, we were welcomed with a bottle of wine, mid-week he came again along with candy for the kids and sandwiches. And on departure we were given a bottle of olive oil with it. The cottage is totally secluded amidst the olive trees. You only hear the call of the kids, the birds and the occasional dog. The house is all right. Really everything is there, even toys for the children. The house is located in the mountains, yet Granada, Antequera and Malaga or do a day trip to the coast. All less than an hour away.
Wonderful base for excursions. R nWe had some bad luck with the weather (much colder than normal). R tend to antonio is a very kind man. speaks only Spanish, which was no problem for us. r nStaat on our list of return addresses.

This house is lovely! It is beautifully cared for in and around the house. Everything is clean, tidy and very verzorgd.De garden is very well maintained, even the terrace is gorgeous.The pool is lovely, very cold! Antonio is very nice, comes with local and pick the grapes for the ranken.Hij not speak english, but you will get there with hands and feet, he is clearly accustomed to that kind of communiceren.Je really need a car have, since the house is completely isolated. Since we were looking for, but if you're not looking for complete peace you need here point.The home as suitable for 6 people, but 4 is really the limit. There is a sofa bed in the living room but the kitchen etc is not equipped to 6 people.
A wonderful holiday in beautiful surroundings. Owner Antonio is very nice and brought us from gathering at the house, a fifteen minute drive from the village. But then you get into an oasis of tranquility, with a nice pool, lovely patio, fruit trees and herb garden and a beautiful view. Worth repeating!
Holiday from start to finish, top 100 points.
Owner very friendly, attentive and very quiet, very relaxing accueillant.Situation while allowing visiting local sites very easily given to "access to the" highway not too far but not harmful. Lacks some kitchenware.
wonderful view and very quiet, lovely terrace and pool, plenty of chairs, etc., air conditioning in all rooms, very friendly and helpful owner
Van Der Auwera
Very nice area, very rustig.Wij have telephoned the owner when we were in the center of Loja and then a point agreed (bar) where he has come to us oppikken.De owner than to run to the huis.Geen knocked some directions and house is certainly not easy to find. The man was very friendly but speaks no other language than Spaans.Aan the phone we had a woman who some English sprak.Alles together is certainly a aanrader.We thinking about the next few years definitely go back to that house in Loja to come.
Olla de Graos is a quiet house located in the mountains / hills of Loja. The road to it is 10 km long and very twisty, from the main road to Los Arenalos Ventorres at the sign to the left and then it is a 2 mile drive through the olive trees. The house is spacious enough for 4 people. There are 2 bathrooms and the kitchen has a dishwasher, oven and microwave. There is no shop within walking distance so (tip) for the mountain rises first errands. The pool is very nice especially on hot days. Antonio is the owner and very friendly, he speaks only Spanish but with a handy phrase book and some knowledge of Spanish, we come to an end in communication. For trips in the area is the house actually just too far from the freeway. It is a 20 minute drive to the mountain you are and the highway driving. The view from the terrace is stunning especially in good weather you can see for miles.
A great time in this house. Everything was perfectly arranged. In a short time we have a lot of area to view.
Very nice house in the countryside, very warm. Ideal home for rest and nature lovers Andalusia.
House, terrace, pool, garden, views superbesLe calm, nature, the beauty of paysageLa sympathy owner Antonio, helpful, caring, knows how to
Beautiful house quietly situated between the olive trees on the mountain. It's just nice to come home after a day out in the area. All cities such as Seville, Cordoba and Granada are easily reached on very good roads. Many seen what a rich cultuur.Eind October 2009 every day sun 25-30 C delicious.
This nice house is situated in a beautiful and peaceful surroundings. Nice pool, nice terrace and very nice atmosphere. The owner is a very kind and sympathetic man, receives a bottle of wine and brings local delicacies. Unfortunately, if you do not speak Spanish, it is difficult to communicate with the owner, but that does not mean that his intentions very sincere. We have a nice holiday! Must ...
A house where "you feel immediately" at home ", a host of" rare kindness, an ideal place for families seeking tranquility and authenticity. Would recommend 200%!
A great house! The place is ideal for trips to Cordoba, Granada and Seville. It is very quiet, and about 15 minutes drive to shops and restaurants. For whom it is not a problem, it is an ideal vakantieplek.Mooi views, nice pool and views olijfboomgaaarden. A must!
Very friendly house with a lonely but beautiful location. For people of small stature is the perfect comfort. For the average North European and the beds are heavily under the measure and ask the kitchen to deep bending. We understood from Antonio, the very friendly and hospitable owner that he intends shortly to put new beds and also very small bathroom renovation. The house has the watchdog Linda. She is very sweet and does not harm humans. We had it in advance to know because one of us is allergic to pets.
Very pleasant and quiet holiday in a beautiful environment. A lovely swimming pool, where we have lived to enjoy with our children. Our host Antonio completed his role perfectly. It was good to communicate with him, he was very friendly, brought to his visits some goodies for us. The watchdog Linda was a surprise (it was not known that she would be there), but also an added value for our holiday.
A lovely house with a great location! The manager is really extremely friendly and personable - even though he was no english speaking: that was no problem. Only downside is that you have about 15 minutes to drive to the civilized world to come (and from there to the different towns / attractions). But contrasting with the quiet and the views and the shepherd with his herd of goats regularly pass by. We would like to go back!
EXCELLENT. We spent 15 days in a beautiful amazing place where we could alternate days off at the pool of the house and the days of discovery of the "Andalusia. Antonio The owner is really very attentive to our well being, it is génial.Merci Congratulations on your site and where we don "had no surprises everything is as you describe.
THe house and pool are lovely. The views fantastic. We had a very peaceful holiday and Antonio, the owner couldnt have been more helpful. Every time he came to clean the pool he brought little presents for the children. A very nice man and a great holiday.
The cottage in Spain was very good, it's very warm and cozy. You have all the space around you and you will be no stranger to people. If you're really looking for a place to rest, you sit out here perfect. You also have also the possibility to do the village of Loja to go. Then you have to have an opportunity to tackle the car otherwise it is very far. Because you're totally in the mountains in the village has everything you need, supermarket, ATM and restaurantjes.Kortom equally nicely with a private pool for the occasional cool. Ideal.
Van Der Heijden
Great house, very nice location, but at 780 meters or so colder than you expect in Andalusia, quite apart from the fact that it was the first week of May colder than normaal.Ontzettend friendly owner, nice area with many possibilities in nature, mountains and hills, white villages, larger towns.
