Stephanie and Terry were great about facilitating our stay — their directions and map were key in getting us there! The place is quiet, secluded, and has an amazing view. We felt a million miles from home, which is what we were looking for! We really enjoyed relaxing by the lovely pool and exploring the small villages in the area.

12 perfect days in this genuine Andalucian country landscape - mixing lazy hours in the mornings with active afternoons
"en la naturaleza". Wonderful hosts sharing our interests of birds and flowers and always ready to advise or help.
This is a special "feel good" place, the best. Thank you

This was our most enjoyable stay in southern Spain so far! The country house "La Calera" is situated in the beautiful hinterland of Malaga, very comfortable by car, romantic calm and well connected to the world at the same time. The "Cortijo", where formerly a large family with their animals lived, was elaborately and with love and handicraft skill restored. It offers full comfort to relax - you sleep well, sit well in the house and out on the terrace. The pool offers refreshment and lots of romantic corners to relax and read. In the house you have the complete accessories for cooking, baking and barbeque. We were a whole family and only cooked ourselves - perfect! The host couple from England, Stephanie and Terry, made us the holiday very pleasant. They are warm, explain a lot of the history and the present of the surroundings, you feel integrated. Great respect for their performance in the restoration, as well as for the professionalism and heart as they do the vacation rental, and their attentive accompaniment of the guests in everyday life. The surrounding area of La Calera is characterized by gentle green fertile hills. Olives and almond trees, citrus, avocados and mangos grow everywhere. On every piece of land something is cultivated. Walks are so much more interesting. Thank you for a wonderful holiday, and see you again.

Terry and Stephanie were the most perfect, welcoming hospitable and friendly hosts. La Calera is stunning. The views, the accommodation, the pool, the gardens, all beautiful and set against the dramatic backdrop of La Peña de Hierro complete with resident eagles for you to spot from the pool. A stunning farmhouse and cottages they have renovated over the years and the love shows. All absolutely stunning, every inch paradise. The house was exceptionally well equipped and very clean with everything you can think you might need and more. We absolutely loved that the location whilst secluded is only 10 minutes away from shops and restaurants. Highly recommended. Would go back in a heartbeat.
