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 house for an idyllic holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in the most gorgeous spot, hidden away from all the hassle of everyday life but remarkably only about an hour's drive from Gibraltar airport. The views are breathtaking and the property is designed to really make the most of them, whether lounging on the lovely terrace, wandering through the extensive gardens or taking a dip in the infinity pool. The house itself is very spacious with lots of different outdoor seating and dining areas, whilst maintaining utter peace and privacy in the bedroom suites - I haven't slept so well for a very long time! It's as easy to find a quiet spot to oneself as it is to hang out with others, making it ideal for a large group. I appreciated all the additional touches - a library of books, DVDs, great sound system, fantastic kitchen (as others have said, very generously equipped for keen cooks and TWO dishwashers so nobody gets lumbered with the washing up). In fact, generous is a word that keeps popping up as I write this - I've rented many holiday properties over the years and this one goes far beyond the norm. It's a stunning house for a wonderful holiday.

Completely recalibrated

  • 5 of 5

La Hoya is so captivating and relaxing that ridiculously some of us didn't even leave the property during our stay. The gardens are clearly a long term labour of love and its hard to do anything other than stare out at the amazing views from various terraces and the pool.

There are numerous areas set up for eating inside and out with a fantastic bbq. The generosity with which the kitchen is equipped makes it an ideal place for those who love to cook and cleaning up made merry by two dishwashers! A really comfortable, enormous airy house - perfect for friends or families.

True paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in wonderful La Hoya for a week in early May and had the most lovely relaxing time. May is the most exquisite time of year where the countryside feels properly alive and the wild flowers are in full bloom. Many an hour was spent by us all snoozing in hammocks in the Courtyard watching the nesting swallows dart in and out of their nests. The house was very well equipped and had everything you could want for a group. We made full use of the magnificent BBQ and particularly appreciated having the choice of which table to eat at each night. We will certainly be back!

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.
