review 29 Jul 2013

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The view from Cantueso Cottages!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Definitely hire a car as no-where is really walking distance Periana is not far, but to walk back to the cottage is all uphill and when it's hot... not a good idea! No locals speak English, but were very friendly, so brush up on some basic Spanish before.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We bought food etc. from the local village and the staff were locals, so yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Nice and relaxing.

review 31 Jul 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Exploring Spain with my two children and seeing them learn to swim in the pool with the most amazing views. Finding Cantueso up in the mountains! It is a stunning location, great accommodation and the restaurant was such good value for money plus being dairy and gluten intolerant, they catered for me.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared to drive up some steep and winding roads for the last 15 mins of the journey. You need a hire car for this holiday even though it is only an hour from Malaga.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - focus on energy, being part of the local community.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Wonderful family holiday - or a holiday for adults.....privacy and company and not too far from life if you want a bigger town or the coast. We are planning on going again next summer.
