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. Maria and family Germany.
