TRIPADVISOR & SAWDAY’S REVIEWS 2021 – JUNE 2022

Holidaying here since 2017

We have been coming here since 2017, only interrupted by COVID! It is peaceful and charming, and the pool is a great boon, Both cottages have advantages. Off season, Olivos has a fire, and magnificent views, or lovely if you are a non swimmer. Limones is also lovely and next to the pool. You could not wish for a better host than Maureen. We will be re-booking!

  Lovely pool

The perfect spot for our first trip abroad. Los Olivos was comfortable and well equipped for a self catering holiday, Maureen supplied us with a welcome pack which was a great start. Fantastic views of the surrounding hills and countryside and very quiet too. You can use the lovely pool adjoining Casa Limones. Once on the main road there are plenty of places to visit within a reasonable drive including Mijas Pueblo, Marbella and Mijas Costa. Maureen was a great hostess and there is plenty of local information available in the cottage.

  Perfect rural getaway

Los Olivos has the most amazing view across the valley and we’ve loved watching the sun change the mountains from dusty pink to a lush green from the terrace. It’s the perfect rural getaway, secluded and private but a short drive away to well-equipped shops. Maureen is the perfect host and has thought of everything to help you to relax into a comfortable stay in her gorgeous finca. The gardens and pool are immaculate and we’ve enjoyed the company of her gentle and friendly dog. We can’t wait to visit again soon!

  Soaring eagles above the hills

We stayed in Los Olivos. An idyllic setting with delightful scenes of soaring eagles high above the Andalusian hills and colourful spring flowers opening up in the sun amongst the olive trees. Ideal to have a swimming pool to dip into across the road and then retreat to our own space to contemplate and enjoy the magnificent sunsets.

  The changing light on the mountains

Absolutely wonderful to be able to travel properly again after the last two difficult covid years…. we stayed in Los Olivos and this little corner of Andalucia was absolutely perfect for us. Maureen has thought of just about everything. The houses, the pool and gardens are beautifully maintained and the reality truly matches the photos. The coast is rather busy but it’s lovely to explore the white hillside villages and then come home, have a dip in the pool, sit on the terrace with amazing views, sip something cool and and watch the light changing on the mountains. Simply idyllic!

  TRIPADVISOR Idyllic and so very relaxing

“We had a great stay here in Los Olivos. The cottage is just as wonderful as everyone else has said in previous reviews and Maureen has thought of everything anyone might need. The pool and gardens are lovely and of course the views are incredible. Highly recommended.”
