Comfortably modernized farmhouse with astounding views over Sierra Castril natural park. Sublime walks from your door; canoes, canyons, swimming, cycling. 10 minutes to charming market town. Log fires and central heating and well-equipped kitchen. Take a look at You Tube: 'Castril Cortijo El Villar' for film of the house and area.


A thick-walled old farm cottage providing 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, store room and shower room all on ground floor. 124m2 in all. Set in a one acre garden with outdoor dining space, olive, nut and fruit trees and rocky promontory with spectacular views.

Tilgang for gjester

This is a ground floor apartment. The upper apartment (see "A Perch in Sierra Castril") shares the garden - but there is plenty of space. If you would prefer complete privacy, book the whole house for 5+ people; see the separate listing for "Castril Cortijo El Villar".

Interaksjon med Gjester

We're not there but will be available to help by phone or email. Carmen, our Spanish-speaking housekeeper, will make things ready for you and guide you to the house. Detailed notes in English, Spanish, French and Dutch are provided. If you speak Spanish, the kind neighbour will answer any questions.

Andre ting å merke seg

There is plenty of outdoor space including level terraces, but this is a hilly area. there is a sheer drop from rocky edge at the far side of the garden, so children and pets need careful supervision.

There is a narrow tarmac road right to your front terrace and space to park two cars.

We ask that, if you smoke, you do so outside. The garden has steep rocky edges, so young children need to be supervised.
We have a biological waste system so ask guests to be careful what goes down the loo.
Water shortages sometimes happen. We have a 1000 litre reserve tank which should see you through, but ask you to use water carefully.
We leave basic supplies in the house (our own olive oil, a few spices, detergents, loo rolls, toothpaste and razors...) and you are welcome to use them. It would be kind of you to replace anything that runs out for the next guest's sake.

Du må også bekrefte
Kjæledyr bor på eiendommen - The neighbour has a couple of cats
Noen områder blir delt med andre - You may find that other guests are using the upper flat while you stay. They will share the garden. There are two barbecues, outdoor tables etc.
Fasilitetsbegrensninger - Weak mobile phone signal. No TV antenna. TV streaming over wifi is possible. Water supply reductions occur so we have a 1000 l backup tank.

La casa estaba muy bien ciudada y nos hemos sentido como en casa, lo único que está un poco escondida pero la chica nos acompañó para poder llegar bien.

La casa de Sue es fantástica, nosotros estuvimos en la parte de abajo. Tiene todos los detalles que necesitas para sentirte como en casa. Está super limpia, las sábanas olian de maravilla. El entorno es muy bonito. Ideal para amantes del senderismo, o para descansar comodamente en la casa y disfrutar del silencio. Muy recomendable.

It's better than I could have imagined. What a lovely romantic apartment in a stunning area. Loved it so much. I regret not having booked more nights than three.

Thanks Sue and Roger for our wonderful stay in Castril. You've been wonderful hosts and thanks too for all your help with suggestions, prompt responses to queries, tips on travel, etc. Your house was lovely and is in an amazing unforgettable place which really ticked all the boxes for us - we swam nearly every day (it was hot), but there are also so many interesting things around to do (we only managed some of them). It was like diving into a different world of sights and tastes and sounds. Gazing up at birds of prey whilst swimming in crystal clear cool water in stunning surroundings was unforgettable. And it's a manageable distance to the Alhambra which was a super experience. I think we all would love to go back there again one day.

Thank you very much for your kind comments. It was an absolute pleasure to communicate about your holiday plans. We like nothing better than to share our delight in this lovely part of Spain. And you have captured the bliss of swimming in the natural parque perfectly! Thanks for being such delightful guests.

Nous avons passé un séjour formidable dans la maison de Sue. Le logement est super : propre, spacieux, très bien équipé, confortable (très bonne literie entre autres). La terrasse ombragée est très agréable. Le calme règne. Les paysages des alentours immédiats sont grandioses (les montagnes, le lac). Nous avons beaucoup apprécié de pouvoir faire des promenades en empruntant des sentiers qui partent directement de la maison. Et la situation est idéale pour découvrir le parc de la Sierra de Castril (on est au coeur du parc en 20 minutes). Nombreuses randonnées et baignades facilement accessibles. Et Sue a pris soin de faire un guide extrêmement complet et précis de la région et de toutes les activités possibles : très utile et pratique! Sue a également été particulièrement à l'écoute et réactive à toutes nos questions. C'était parfait, nous reviendrons avec plaisir : 4 jours c'était trop court, il y a tant à découvrir dans la région! Clémence, Stéphane et Léonie

Sue y Roger tienen una casa estupenda de dos plantas (nosotros solo usamos la baja), amplia, cómoda, maravillosamente aclimatada y preparada y con buena conexión de internet. Está ubicada justo en el límite donde empieza el Parque Natural de Sierra de Castril por lo que es un lugar ideal desde el que salir a hacer rutas de senderismo. La primera vez puede costar un poco llegar, pero con las indicaciones previas y la ayuda de Carmen que te recoge en un punto más accesible y te conduce hasta allí, no hay ningún problema. Tuvimos el placer de conocer a los anfitriones el último día y fueron muy agradables con nosotros, nos acompañaron en una ruta desde la casa rodeando el embalse, nos mostraron algunas cuevas convertidas en casas y hoy abandonadas y nos contaron un poco más de la zona. La experiencia no pudo ser más positiva y la zona, preciosa.

I divide my time between York, where I have another holiday flat (New Walk Coach House) and lovely Castril. We love walking in the mountains and swimming in the lakes. On our travels, we've come to appreciate the comfort and freedom of holiday homes. That's influenced the way we …
