“Home away from home”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at Casa Sampo. Sue and Miguel were extremely kind and helpful and even welcomed us with one of Sue's delicious homemade cakes. The apartment was very clean, spacious and comfortable. And the setting of the house can't be beat - beautiful views of the valley and a pool to cool down from the hot Andalusian sun. But more than anything, Casa Sampo really feels like a home and Sue and Miguel have thought of everything to make their guests' stay as fun and relaxing as possible. From the organized information about nearby sights and activities, to games and DVDs, to the friendly pets - there is something for everyone. It was definitely one of the highlights of our Andalucia trip!

So glad you all enjoyed your stay here, it was such a pleasure to see 3 generations of one family having fun and relaxing together. Hope the final part of your journey to Granada was as enjoyable and you all arrived home in your respective countries with some lovely memories. Kind regards Sue and Miguel

“Excellent holiday, totally relaxing, with amazing views.”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Myself and partner shared the Casa Sampo with my sister-in-law and her family, including 2 young children. We enjoyed every moment that we stayed here, the apartment was great, had everything you needed to make it feel a home from home. The surrounding area's were typically rural Spanish, near to El Churro, amazing walks, and the views were amazing from the apartment. It was situated a lovely quiet area, so relaxing. The outdoor was also brilliant, all what you'd need: swimming pools, chairs, tables, bbq area, covered eating area. The owners, Miguel and Sue were lovely, hardly saw them but always nice to know that they were there is we needed anything, and not to mention their amazing dogs and a cat which we all fell in love with. Would highly recommend this apartment and definately want to go back again. Thank you for such a lovely stay.

Liked best: The location, being so quiet and peaceful....bliss.
Liked least: The 'only' thing was, that it is nice to open doors straight onto to the outside but as this is a basement apartment then this isn't an option anyway. No faults at all.

“Fantastic place and lovely friendly owners.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were so lucky to find this at the last minute and booked it based on the other reviews. It definitely lived up to expectation... the apartment was great, really clean, comfy and had everything you could possible need, from towels, bedding and kitchen stuff to games, info on the area and dvd's. The views were great both from lounging by the great pool and walking along the ridge road near the house. The area was lovely: the amazing lakes near El Chorro, Alora with its castle and pretty white houses and even the cost were all in easy reach (with a car). And finally the owners were brilliant, always offering advice and happy smiles when we saw them and even took us out for amazing ice cream and tapas in Pizarra. So a wonderful holiday was had - thank you very much.

“Great place to stay - especially for climbers (we'll come back)”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Great apartment with lots of space and many homely features. Sue and Miguel left us a home baked cake and oranges. They were very friendly and helpful. Close to Alora, which is the perfect base for all the climbing crags around El Chorro.

“Perfect base for climbers wishing to explore the local area”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Four of us spent 10 days at Casa Sampo as our base for climbing in the El Chorroa area. The accommodation was superb and our hosts were very friendly and helpful, and the home cooked food every evening was perfect after spending all day at a crag! The best climbing areas are only a short drive away, and there is a good supermarket and bars etc even closer in Alora.

I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation for anyone (climbers especially) who wants to stay in comfort and enjoy the fantastic local area.

We should have taken Miguel's advice, the pool really is very cold in January!
