“Salamanquesa - Superb Spanish House with private Pool”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from our stay at Salamanquesa in Riogordo. We were sent an excellent information pack prior to travelling which contained a lot of detail we found helpful, including how to find the property. It is on a one way system and so this was appreciated. On arrival we were greeted with a super welcome pack of bread, cheese, meats, tea/coffee and wine - all of which was lovely the minute you step through the door.

The house is excellent and includes all home features we needed and felt very big inside with four bedrooms in total. The kitchen is very well equipped too with plenty of fridge/freezer space, washing machine and oven/hob etc. Outdoors the pool is a complete winner and was put to very good use in the soring temperatures we had, with sunbeds and plenty of seating and bbq too.

Riogordo town has all you need in terms of shops and restaurants. We ate and drank in only half of them but they were all very friendly and provided great service and lovely food. Try to go out later in the evening if you can to get the full Spanish experience. Not much is happening at 5.30pm English dinner time! Families walk out together with children and grandparents, all sharing a meal from 10pm onwards. It was great to see. My young son was struggling to keep his eyes open at the beginning but was happy when we managed to order him a burger and chips. During our stay was their summer fair. Every village in Andalucia were celebrating with the streets decorated brightly and an evening procession of floats carried through the streets with bands playing and fireworks going off. The music and celebrations continue throughout the night, but it was a great experience and a spectacular event to see with colourful outfits etc.

The area is amazing and sited within some stunning scenery. Driving around through the moutains is quite breathtaking but you will need your wits about you on some of the more minor roads. Our hire car had air con and we were grateful for that. It was a Citreon C5 and I'd say it was as wide as you would want to park outside the property. We had to fold in the mirrors and get as close to the wall as possible to allow the dustbin lorry to get by.

Our whole experience of booking this property, communication with the owners, payment etc has been very smooth. We have fully enjoyed our holiday in Spain and would highly recommend this to any family wishing to see some 'real' Spain.

“Beautiful spanish house”
Reviewed June 13, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Upon arrival we were really impressed by the size of the house, it was left very clean for us and a welcome pack including two bottles of wine was more than welcome.
The house has a lovely pool which is totally private and the views from the first floor balcony were lovely. We spent most nights up there enjoying the view of the valley whilst drinking the lovely local wines.
The house is the perfect base to explore the beautiful countryside of Spain. Some of the views on the mountain drives were on par with the alps it was simply breath taking.
We found some lovely places to eat in riogordo where we met some lovely people who recommended a number of specialities on the menu.
The local pork was amazing so was the wines which were extremely reasonable.
Overall a really relaxing week in the heart of rural Spain.
One thing I couldn't believe was how friendly people were, everyone said hello to us.
Totally unlike the Uk.
Thanks for a lovely week.

“Excellent house in a charming town”
Reviewed April 24, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a wonderful week in Riogordo. The house was excellent, comfortable and well equipped. There were 9 of us and it felt spacious. The outside space was great and the kids loved the pool. Beautiful views from the upper balcony. The wood burner in the living room was a nice touch as we had a couple of chilly evenings.
The owner was prompt to answer enquiries and sent us a very helpful booklet with suggestions of places to visit. They even left food and wine in the fridge for us arriving.
We really liked this town, friendly people, excellent tapas bars and a good base for exploring the surrounding area. We would love to go back sometime.
