Guestbook comments from the manager

“Cortijo La Hoya was undoubtedly the loveliest house we have ever stayed in. The Courtyard with its orange trees and the scent of thyme and rosemary was very special…

Our children loved their accommodation with the mural of African desert and the privacy it offered them…... We are left in awe at the energy and vision it required to create such a lovely home.”

Beautiful property with relaxed feel

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here in early September and had a wonderful time. Stunning views from the terraces and the pool, a real tranquillity to the whole place and plenty to do both inside and out. Surrounding area has restaurants, supermarkets and other amenities. Totally faultless and would be lying if I said I didn't want to visit again!

Idyllic week

  • 5 of 5

This is my favourite place in the world. The villa is situated in perfect solitude in the Andulsian hills near Jimena and not far from Ronda. The house is huge, cool and airy, and so spacious that you can take your pick of perfect spots for long meals and early evening drinks; the courtyard, the terrace, the garden, the patio. The views are simply stunning, with 30 kilometres of rolling hills stretching out all the way down to the Mediterranean, and with a sight of Africa on the clearest days. Whether you're in the pool or having an evening drink on the terrace, it's the most beautiful accompaniment to each day. We also ventured out from the villa for day trips to Cadiz and Jerez, and into Jimena to visit the castle. There are also good wild swimming spots not too far away, but actually our favourite was to lie by the pool reading and enjoying the exquisite surroundings of the garden. Cannot wait to return and highly recommend all guests invest in some chilled fino sherry for evening aperitifs.

Perfect Southern Spain Villa

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to La Hoya almost every year for ten years. I love the house, the views the atmosphere so much. The garden is really extensive now and has matured beautifully so not only do you have the cool courtyard to lounge in as well as the pool area with unbelievable views but also a beautiful garden that stretches into the surrounding countryside. It's a magical place, perfect for deep chill with family or getting your groove on with pals.

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

It was lovely to be back in La Hoya for another visit to this amazing house. As ever it is looking beautiful and the garden was in full bloom. We visited Jerez and Cadiz which was a great day trip and we loved trying the different types of sherry in a tabanco. We also went to the Cueva del Gato which was very cold but a great trip. The highlights of the trip though were the dinners at the cortina watching the sunset and the stars coming out across the hills. A magical place.

Magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine en famille (grands et petits) à La Hoya et avons adoré le lieu, les paysages, l'espace, toute la propriété et la décoration de la maison ! Nous avons eu de plus un merveilleux temps andalou, ciel azur, soleil et chaleur. La piscine a eu beaucoup de succès ! Tout est fait pour le calme, le farniente ; en fait, il fallait un peu se faire violence pour visiter les alentours … Nous tenons également à remercier Inès pour son accueil et Paco pour l'entretien journalier.

Bref, un séjour idyllique dont nous garderons un très bon souvenir !

Ideal for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We rented La Hoya for a family gathering (ages 9mths to 80) and it couldn't have been more perfect. Booking a villa online you always worry its going to be a let down when you get there but this villa exceeded our expectations. The pictures don't really do it justice, the house was beautiful and the views stunning! It's a great set up as the rooms are all self contained off the courtyard so everyone has their own space. Paco's paella was delicious and would recommend Erica who comes to do manicures etc. I'd definitely recommend to friends. Thank Ines, Paco and Christopher!
