Overview

If you want to visit real Spain and get away from it all, in a beautifully restored traditional town house, with private courtyard, pool, sun terrace, have comfort and complete privacy, yet still be able to stroll to a restaurant or bar, local shops and mix with the locals, then this is the place for you! The house sleeps 8 or 10, and we fell in love with it as it fulfilled so many of our holiday needs. With an extended family, this fits all the requirements as we can just stay there and experience the village, or get in the car and travel to Seville, Granada, Cordoba, Malaga, the beach, or national parks, traditonal towns and villages it offers everything. The villagers speak very little English, but are keen to help you get by. During the weekend evenings the main street is closed off and filled with tables and chairs, and the locals eat and drink and chat, its so casual and friendly. If you need a supermaket, Estepa is about 5 mins drive and has may shops. Our village has a few small shops and you can certainly find most things there, theres a fishmonger, small bank and cash point, and a hardware type store which seems to sell almost anything from pool inflatables to toilet seats!

Tastefully Reformed Traditional Property
The property has been really beautifully reburbished, and is simple but tasteful. Downstairs has an entrance hall, lounge area with wood burner for those milder winter nights, dining area, further lounge/snug area with TV and double doors out to patio. Double bedroom and twin room with bunk beds. Stunning open plan fully equiped kitchen with breakfast bar, cooker, fridge freezer, microwave, toaster. Bathroom with bath and shower, WC.

Home comforts
The house has wireless broadband and a land line with free calls to UK 01 or 02 numbers (any other calls will be charged for). There are 10 large towels for use inside and out. The beds have duvets to use when necessary. The kitchen is well equiped, we think weve thought of everything - corkscrew obviously, sharp knives, tin opener.......and it is stocked with little extras such as salt & pepper, olive oil, vinegar, coffee, sugar, cling film, foil, paper towel, candles, matches and the kind of thing that you may need but dont want to think about buying - we just ask that if you finish something, you replace it - that way it should be fair on everyone! Outside there is a store room with a washing machine and the barbeque and some of the furniture. There are 5 sunloungers with padded cushions, 2 patio tables which will seat 10 (padded cushions for these), and the sun furniture can be taken up to the roof terrace which is ideal for getting that all over tan!
Upstairs is a double bedroom, twin room and large lounge area with sofa. The bathroom is beautifully tiled and has WC, bidet, bath and shower (window does have views of other guests getting all over tan!) There is a loft room off the top of the stairs which is completely open plan and has a double sofa bed if you wish to sleep 10 (favourite room with the children for some reason!)

We had a lovely week at Casa Isabella. Property was lovely. Diane and Andreas were really helpful and informative. We are a family of 2 adults and 4 teenage girls. The pool was amazing and the house had everything we could wish for. The house is spacious and there is enough room for everyone to do their own thing. The villagers were very accommodating but dont try to drive through the main street (Saint Miguel) after 9pm in July or August (as we did) otherwise you will have to experience the embarassment of reversing several hundred meters with the locals looking on! We had a great week and would highly recommend this propery either as a base for touring the Andalucian area, or just somewhere to really chill out within a traditional Spanish setting.

A very well maintained property with all one needs for a very comfortable stay. In an excellent location to explore of Andelucia on day trips. A car is needed but it is easy to link with a trains that take you to all of the major centres.
We looked at lots of villas/town houses and this was by far the most reasonably priced. The property has been sympathetically restored and instantly made us feel at home. The weather at the end of September/beginning of October was simply fantastic and we were able to eat outside everyday and make full use of the lovely swimming pool. The villa is conveniently located for day trips by car to Granada, Seville and Cordoba etc. The nearby Torcal National Park is great for hiking and for those who have never seen a Pink Flamingo in the wild, the Lagoon of Fuente de Piedra is just down the road. Lora de Estepa is typically Spanish and really friendly with a good tapas bar, a few small grocery shops and a hidden bakery located at No. 41 In short we loved it. Good value, a good location and a lovely house. Mike and Anastasia

We bought this house to share with our extended family, we have 6 children between us and wanted somewhere that we could all share and enjoy. We can also go to the property and work with our wi-fi, and then enjoy afternoons by the pool!
