“What a wonderful villa in a wonderful village”
Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was our second time at Los Buhos, this time with two other families. We had teenagers in tow and this fabulous place worked perfectly to accommodate and entertain all age ranges. As last time we loved the pool and the large and verdant garden - with hammock, boules and table tennis as well as some beautiful sculpture - a recent addition I think. The rooms are very elegant with wonderful artwork and lots of welcoming touches. The kitchen is large and well equipped - and we all ate together at a large table on the verandah, overlooking Gibraltar and the sunset. There are breezes to cool the villa - although it looks as though it would be wonderful even in winter as it has a woodburner and cosy furnishings in the beautiful drawing room that we never used! The village is a delight and there is lots to do within a couple of hours of Gaucin.

“Perfect place to chill !”
Reviewed January 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

This villa was the perfect place to chill out with family. Lots of different areas to relax indoors and outside , tasteful, well equipped, amazing views from the terraces, beautiful garden and pool, and a short walk to some lovely restaurants. We particularly liked the large covered verandah for eating and relaxing and the outdoor table tennis table was very well used! We would definitely return !

“Interesting, fun, relaxing in gorgeous surroundings.”
Reviewed January 7, 2015 for a stay in April 2014

We attended the art history course for one week in April 2014.It consisted of excellent lectures at Villa Los Buhos, interesting excursions, and fun activities in and around Gaucin. Villa Los Lobos is a very beautiful place where one can just sit and enjoy the stunning views from the terrace, relax in the big garden or by the pool, and enjoy all the beautiful pieces of art. We also loved the delicious local food and wine which was served. The lovely hosts made it a special place indeed! Gaucin is a charming small village which we enjoyed exploring. It is home to several local and international artists who opened their studios to us, and also came to teach painting and photography. All in all, a delightful experience!

“Exquisite, characterful villa, perfect for large meals and parties but also for intimate moments and secluded peace”
Reviewed January 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2014

I was welcomed with such hearty warmth by the owners at this beautiful villa. It was not just the ebullience and generosity of their character that made mine such a happy arrival, but the house itself was cool in the heat, light and open yet full of intimate spaces, each decorated with carefully found and thoughtfully placed objects, paintings, and books, so many of which are local to the region - itself so rich in art and culture.

I joined a party of 9, and the villa catered for us amply. There are several areas around the house and gardens to catch the sun or shade as a large group, all of which offer memorable views. Yet while it is an ideal villas for feasts and big parties, the brilliantly designed gardens provide many secluded spots for privacy and calm.

We rarely wanted to leave the villa which, when you are in it, feels blissfully miles from anywhere, but open the door and we were in the heart of the charming and lively village. Restaurants, artists' studios, flamenco, the bustling main square, a castle and more give a vivid taste of Spanish life and a close community.

Los Buhos is heaven

“The perfect place to both relax and to learn and make new friends”
Reviewed December 21, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were two friends, both widows who travel a lot and are both still working in academia and internationally so we are pretty "picky" and not sure about joining a "group". Who would they be? How would we fit in? But neither knew enough about the art and history of Andulasia, (more about Italy France, Greece and beyond), and we also wanted sun, rest, good food. VILLA LOS BUHOS was divine in every possible way. First the Villa itself is stunning, gorgeous, and every room with ensuite showers, beautifully and thoughtfully arranged with an Andalusian local touch. The food , breakfasts, lunches, dinners was the bests ever.. Ian and Jacqueline as hosts and as lecturers on art and history and culture of the region superb. Our outings divine. The pool, the garden idyllic. And the other guests wonderful, we made lasting friendships, were rested, refreshed and intellectually as well as gastronomically stimulated and satisfied. I recommend this Villa its hosts, and its courses its food, its welcome and warmth unreservedly - and having travelled widely all over the world this review should be taken seriously !
