Magical house, fabulous location
We are still reeling after our stay at La Hoya and trying to find an excuse to get a group together so we can go again! It is the most wonderful house. You sense the magic as soon as you walk through the huge, fabulous front door and the feeling just gets better and better. We took a group of 12 family members and friends to La Hoya for a special birthday party - a colourful mix from Germany and Britain, from 4 to 75 years old, and they all loved it for different reasons. We arrived and left on different days, and although there were times when there were only 4-6 of us there, the house always felt warm and welcoming. In fact, we had previously researched a number of luxury houses in Gaucin, but this was the only one that really felt like a 'home'. The other reviews describe it all so perfectly, it's difficult to add anything new. Maybe the wonderful mix of fabrics and richly coloured rugs, the lovely tiered garden design with delicious herbs, figs, apples, quinces and lemons; the perfectly placed seats, benches and hammocks to catch the sun or shade; the wonderfully equipped kitchen (our hobby cooks were thrilled); the great book collection including tons of guide books and hiking trails; the wall paintings in the children's wing and the pool toys, the funny geckos hiding behind the light fittings on the terrace, the fact that the rooms all have their own 'front doors' opening onto the central courtyard so everyone can come and go without disturbing the others and the views of the sunset across the mountains towards Africa. And of course no review would be complete without mentioning Virginia, Paco and the amazing house manager Ines, who couldn't do enough to help us both before and during our stay. Thanks a million for the opportunity to share such a special house!
