“A relaxing and sunny week in a stylish casita in beautiful Cutar”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2013

We spent a wonderful week in Cutar and loved every minute. Our week began with the delicious welcome meal cooked by John and Judy with fresh produce grown on their land - every mouthful was divine. We then spent the next seven days eating, sitting on the balcony admiring the view, reading or sketching - and of course siesta-ing during the afternoons. If you're feeling more active than we were, there's lots of information and recommendations for what to do in the area. We took a trip to a recommended beach one day and to almachar on another day, eating in Bar Lopez - 8 euros each for a three-course meal! But most of all we were happy to be in Cutar, either enjoying the casita and terrace, wandering around the village and just beyond, or having a coffee at the village bar. The cottage was full of character and spotless, and having the terrace with such a lovely rural view was a real treat. Having enjoyed the welcoming meal so much we decided to order a departure meal too. Once again we were treated to a meal made with John and Judy's fresh produce, which included a salad featuring wild pears, a Moroccan pastilla, and babaganoush that just melted in the mouth. We plan to come back as soon as possible and will be recommending the cottage and location to friends and family. It was excellent value, hugely enjoyable and a very welcome dose of relaxation!

“We had a lovely stay in the cottage. It felt like we were in tru”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2012

We had a lovely stay and enjoyed travelling around. The service, price and information available in the cottage was excellent. It felt like a true Spainish expereince and it was nice to not be able to speak English with anyone! We did miss not being close to any water in the heat.

“Nice stay at a lovely cottage in the mountains”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2012

We visited John and Judys cottage in May 2012. It was a very pleasant stay. The cottage was really nice, we had breakfast on the balcony every morning. The bed was really good, we slept like babys. We rented the one-bedroom casita. The people in the little village and especially our hosts were very nice. I would stay there again. The only recommendation to other guests: you will need a (rental)car.

“A cosy, hospitable, stylish stay surrounded by birds in valley a”

Reviewed 25 May 2012

John and Judy were lovely and relaxed owners that were there when you needed them. No problems over broken glass. The home was stylish and well equipped. We should have asked for a sun shelter over the terrace when it got really hot in the afternoon. Our fault we didn't. The only thing that could turn out to be a little bit problematic was the tap in the kitchen. To close it properly you needed really strong hands. But we're sure that J&J; won't hesitate to mend that. The village was cute and hardly discovered by tourists. It disposed of a tiny little shop that has got everything you need, also fresh bread in the morning. Interesting in the neighbourhood: high village Comares, the cave of Nerja and the beaches (don't forget your watershoes; some are stone beaches). What we liked a lot were the stays on the beautiful terrace with birds in the little green valley below and above us in the sky. Apart from the two little mendable things mentioned above, we have absolutely no complaints! Good luck, John and Judy!

“A unique and memorable experience in the real heart of Spain”

Reviewed 11 Feb 2012

We were welcomed by our wonderful hosts to our gorgeous casa and spent the next week exploring the hills and villages around Cutar - and all we can say is what an absolutely amazing place it is, and how great it was to truly 'get away from it all'. Cutar is located on the side of a hill (you'll never have so much fun on the open road again!) and enjoying an evening meal (the fresh produce is outstanding)on the balcony affords wonderful views of the numerous olive and fig trees and the surrounding mountains - with the added comedy of the cockerel evensong (you'll have to go to find out exactly what we mean, but lets just say we think the cockerels are slightly confused!). This is the perfect place for a relaxing, romantic holiday 'off the beaten track' and we encourage anyone who wants to experience the 'real' Spain to book up as soon as possible - but do brush up on your basic Spanish before you go: you won't find an English pub, McDonalds or aTM here ...and that's why we loved it!

“A lovely hideaway”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2012

I must admit that I wasn't expecting much when I booked cheap flights to Malaga with my wife. I had visions of nightmare seaside resorts out of season, but nothing could have further from the truth. We really enjoyed our stay and we thought that the area surrounding our little apartment was breathtaking. The cottage was the focus of our weekend, and we loved returning to the house and locking the door and just enjoying our evenings. The view from the balcony is stunning and we had fun cooking dinner soaking in the tiny little hip bath and lighting the fire using firewood that we collected from the national park nearby. The apartment had everything we needed, although the wi-fi connection was a bit slower and more intermittent that I'm used to. No TV, but to be honest, that was no bad thing. John and Judy bent over backwards to make sure that we enjoyed our stay, and dealt quickly with any little 'teething' problems we encountered at the start of our stay. We had long chats with John, and both of them provided lots of information about the locality. We stayed for 3 nights in November - we were really lucky with the weather and to be honest we were sad to leave!

“Loved it”

Reviewed 22 Dec 2011

This is a beautiful place for those who want to experience the peace and tranquility of spanish countryside while staying in a traditional spanish cottage. The owners of this cottage( John and Judy) will make you feel at home and are always available to help. It was so nice to sit around the large open log fire at night and chill out. Malaga is just a half hour drive away if you want to go. We throughly enjoyed ourselves here and hope to go back again sometime in the future. It is a great place for a romantic getaway or for families with young children. There is no TV which I thought was nice as it meant we had to entertain ourselves which wasnt difficult in the fire lit atmosphere. The path down to the cottage is quite steep so older people or people with disabilities might struggle but for fitter people it isnt a problem.

“Friendly landlords, nice apartment, beautiful views”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2011

We (couple with 7-months old baby) had a wonderful time here. Very calm village, beautiful landscape, nice apartment and - first and foremost - very friendly and welcoming landlords. Thanks for a great time.

“A lovely stay in a beautiful village”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2011

We spent 10 days in Cutar in near perfect weather. The village is outstandingly beautiful. The people are friendly and happy to help, especially if you try to engage them with any morsels of Spanish you may have. (Understanding what they say in reply is less easy as they don't seem to use any 's's!). The accommodation is ideal for a couple and sitting on the balcony overlooking the mountains is just lovely. John and Judy are ideal hosts and happy to give you any information you may want. Their cooking is divine! We arrived late and really enjoyed the lovely meal we pre-ordered from them. There are several pretty surrounding villages to walk to (quite tiring in the sun though as there are always steep hills). You can also get to them by car! The seaside is about 40 mins away and we enjoyed the less touristy Maro and Torre del Mar. Do go here if you want a relaxing holiday away from the crowds. Don't go if you want more 'action' - the nearest shop is 15 mins by car (although some essentials are available at the bar)and the nearest petrol 30 mins. We had a really good time!

“An immersion in the genuine andalucian life”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2011

We have found the bungalow's owners, John and Judy, very welcoming. They have shared with us their love for this genuine lovely part of andalucia ; through their paper guide, website and conversations, we could see the inner side of the axarquia region, take part in the local life. John and Judy have enabled us to live " une découverte avec du sens, de ce petit coin de paradis, au coeur profond de l'Espagne" (easier to express it in French, for us ;)...) We have definitely loved living in this genuine style cottage, in the heart of the living village of Cutar !
