Testimonials from our guests
We arrived at Steph’s and Terry’s beautiful cottage and received a warm welcome including a little welcome pack which was very useful. Both Steph and Terry were great hosts, they were there when you needed them but respected your privacy. The cottage was very well equipped, we cooked some lovely meals in the evening including some nice bbq’s. The area all around the cottage and the views are just stunning. It was the most peaceful and relaxing holiday we ever had and will definitely return some time soon. Thank you ? xx

I stayed at this lovely cottage for about 10 days on my own and had a marvelous time. To me a five star review is not enough to express how I liked this place. If possible I would have given 10 stars. I fell in love with this cute and cozy cottage that is carefully decorated with good taste and style (and not just filled up with loads of IKEA stuff). On my arrival Steph showed me around the house and there was fresh fruit, wine, yummie cookies and drinking water as a welcome. The cottage just has all you need. A good equipped kitchen, a nice and hot shower, a comfortable bed ( with amazing views..) and a cozy outside terrace ideal for having just breakfast or for just spent all day relaxing on the couch. For those chilly evenings there’s a huge fireplace to sit next to. All rooms were equipped with a heating system, and Steph even put an electric blanket on my bed because Andalusian winter nights can get quite cold. I think that is what I so much liked here, it’s all in those little details. Everything is being taken care of. For those working online: excellent wifi around the whole property! The hosts are just superfriendly and helpfull. Steph brought maps and a walking guide when she found out I love to make long walks. After having climbed la Maroma ( big hike up to 2026 meters) I found a tupperware with a freshly baked cake by Steph in it on my doorstep. I think carrot cake never tasted that good in my entire life! Around the house there’s a beautiful garden with lots of birds and special trees and flowers. And the view from the terrace is just beautiful every time of the day ( and night..). The house is located very convenient for day trips as well. It’s just a half hour drive to the coast, and also for exploring the mountains and villages more inwards it’s great. I think this cottage is perfect to stay in at all seasons. Again, I can highly highly recommend a stay at La Calera. The house is just bliss and so are the hosts. Don’t hesitate, just book!

This lovely house made us feel at home right away. The views are spectacular and the quite and starry nights mesmerizing! Steph and Terry are really friendly and helpful, love you guy’s! In the middle of olive country with a dash of citrus, almonds and carob trees you can feast your eyes as well as your mouth. Granada and the Alhambra is only 90 min’s by car. The beach is a 30 min drive. All the sierra’s and peak’s in the area are perfect for hiking. And after that a quick dip in the pool!

The place of Steph and Terry is a wonderful place to relax and forget the everyday life. We were beyond impressed with every bit of this place: the view, the silence, the beautiful terraces around the house and the pool. The cottage was very cosy and perfectly equipped. Steph and Terry are amazing hosts and they give a lot of information about the area. Looking forward to come back soon.

Agaves, Aloes, Olives, Bouganvillea (white, pink and coral), Jacaranda, Hibiscus, Bamboo, assorted succulents, Yukka, Birds of Paradise and Geranium strive for ascendancy around the deep-blue crescent shaped pool. But the Carob, with its drooping seedpods stands head and shoulders above the rest. Frangipane, Zebrina,Tradescantia and Jasmine dot the eyes and cross the t's.

The Carob appears welded to large chunks of rockslide - furtively covering a filled in cave that has secrets to tell of the Spanish Civil War.

The immense sky above is impartial as Kestrels, Eagles, Bee-Eaters, Golden Orioles soar and flit hither and thither. Swallows and Swifts swoop gloriously and skim the pool for wasps, bees and blue or red translucent dragonflies.

Apart from the usual sunbeds and parasols scattered around the pool there are two secluded sitting spots; one under the huge Carob, tinkling with wind chimes, and ours, the enchanting pergola nestled amongst Bamboo and assorted Bouganvillea.

Behind the pool, as the ground ascends past the numerous Olives the view is enriched by Pena de Hierro (the rock of iron) which many, many years ago jettisoned large boulders onto the world below.

I could mention the steep twisting drive up to the three rentals, the breathingtaking views and the elevated gardens. The delightful Casa Algarrobo, and the Casitas, Gorrion and Buho Real, but I won't, I have said enough. Suffice to say La Calera is heaven on earth. Paradise.

Many thanks Terry and Steph for making it so.

What a lovely place with a very welcoming couple. They are there when you have a question or just for a talk. Never to much to explain where to go, what to do etc. And they supply you with a lot of information . A nice welcome package is there when you arrive. The casita it self has an atmosphere that make you feel home, a good kitchen, a fine shower and a pleasant bedroom. But the terrace it the place to be. In the morning for sunrise and in the evening for the moon and stars. But also for just listening to nature. The surroundings are beautiful: there a less houses in this area, no noise, with a lot of nature around and daily live. And for me: the bench at the beginning of the 3 km long track to the house! I gives you lovely views, also on the walk to reach it. A wonderful place to spend time and to come back every day from a day out. There are many walks in quick reach by car, nice authentic villages, beach in 30 minutes and so much more. There are more rooms/houses to rent. But the all three have a very private space outside.
