Modern comforts in an old, beamed mountain cottage. Spectacular views in every direction from the one-acre garden. Great walking, wild swimming and wildlife in the Sierra Castril natural park, with the charming market town of Castril 4 km away. A short film on You Tube, Castril Cortijo El Villar, gives you a good idea of the house and its setting. The film shows the whole house; this is the first-floor apartment.

House Rules

We ask that, if you smoke, you do so outside. The garden has steep rocky edges, so young children need to be supervised.
We have a biological waste system so ask guests to be careful what goes down the loo.
Water shortages sometimes happen. We have a 1000 litre reserve tank which should see you through, but ask you to use water carefully.
We leave basic supplies in the house (our own olive oil, a few spices, detergents, loo rolls, toothpaste and razors...) and you are welcome to use them. It would be kind of you to replace anything that runs out for the next guest's sake.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - One flight to first floor. The garden rises steeply in places and there are unguarded edges. Small children and pets need to be supervised.
Pet(s) live on property - Our neighbour has a couple of cats.
Some spaces are shared - You may find you share the large garden with guests using the downstairs apartment. There are 2 barbecues, outdoor tables etc.
Amenity limitations - Weak Mobile phone signal. No TV antenna, only wifi for streaming TV. Occasional reductions in water supply so we have 1000 l storage tank as backup.

I was looking for a very peaceful and silent accommodation outside any urban location and found it – which is not very common - in Sue’s rural apartment, on the top of a fully refurnished old two-store house (some parts of the pieces are not appropriate for tall people, above all the bathroom). It had brand-new functional furniture of good quality and all amenities usually required for a comfortable stay. From York, Sue and I communicated in a very efficient and smooth way, with the charming collaboration of her housekeeper on the spot, Carmen, who provided me with all information requested. 100% recommended for a relaxing stay in a real rural area.

Response from Sue:
Thanks, Vicente, and I'm glad it was peaceful and comfortable enough for you. Sorry that the bathroom ceiling height was a bit of low - we'll advise the ground floor apartment for taller visitors! I'll pass on your kind comments to Carmen.

I divide my time between York, where I have another holiday flat (New Walk Coach House) and lovely Castril. We love walking in the mountains and swimming in the lakes. On our travels, we've come to appreciate the comfort and freedom of holiday homes. That's influenced the way we host this place. It can be used as a 4bedroom house or two smaller apartments, so we have listed three options.
