We had a wonderful time here. Mana the host was extremely helpful and very friendly. The house was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The area was spectacular with great trails to run and cycle on. If you like nature this is a brilliant spot, with countless birds singing, very relaxing.

Cozy and fun place in the andalucian countryside, great to get away from it all. Mana is a lovely and attentive host. The site is convenient for day trips to Antequera, Malaga, Granada and Cordoba. We loved our stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, rustic stay in the countryside.

Mana's place is just great! So relaxing, beautiful and peacefu.. Mana is a very helpful and friendly host. We felt home very quickly. Our daughters enjoyed it so much, the pool, the toys, the horses, the space... It is a really nice place for vacation, but be aware, it's rustic, not a luxury stay! I highly recommend it.

Mana is a very warm person and responsive. The cottage has been rebuilded with two bedrooms, bathrooms and a nice view open space living room. She recommnds us to eat at the cafe restaurant - Chapata Casa Manolo which about 10 mintues driving from the cottage. The food there is super delicious with inexpensive price. If you like nature and peacful, the cottage from Mana is your best choice.

We stayed at the wooden house in Archidona for nearly all of the month of October. Mana and Roberto were extremely kind and welcoming always there for help. Mana was quite good at english and communicated very consistently with us. The listing was just a little misleading, as the pool is very small and at mana and Roberto's house not at the wooden house and the house has one bedroom not two, the way it seemed when we booked. We also did have a little trouble finding the house upon arrival at night, as it is not in the town of Archidona but rather between Salinas and Archidona on a little off road. The property is very quaint and a very nice stay for those looking to relax and chill outside, as there are many sitting areas in the garden, with a small pond and hammocks. The house that guests stay in is private away from the main house. the space is extremely decorated with Morrocan inspired trinkets which didn't leave a ton of space for food and our personal belongings. We are a couple from California and were solely visiting Spain to rock climb nearly everyday, so certain aspects of the listing were not as important to us as others. For instance, deco was not a big concern but sleep was. Unfortunately we did run into a few issues during our long stay that should be noted. The bed was a huge problem. Horrible. Not sure my back will ever be the same. We had to buy our own pillows because sleeping with a uni-pillow was impossible. It's the countryside, and its Spain, so dogs barking constantly every night for hours is just normal culture. We had some problems with the plumbing in the bathroom. A lack of drainage in the shower and sink from day one as well as a sewage smell overtime you flush the toilet that enveloped the entire house. The wifi worked great when we arrived which was awesome for our work needs but we quickly learned that downloading anything drained the speed to a snail pace that left it useless for nearly two weeks. Even with these issues I would still recommend staying here because of how caring the hosts are but I highly suggest it only for shorter stays. Mana is a fantastically sweet woman and host but the house needs a few upgrades. If you are looking for something different from city living where you can escape the the web and don't mind simple things then this is a gem. Just bring your ear plugs, incense, and a really good pillow.

Response from Mana:
Dear Lindsey, Thanks a lot for your (URL HIDDEN) regards the bed and pillows I would have liked you to tell me about that during your stay so as to solve it at that moment.You also said something about the pool and the number of bedrooms.I think that in my advert it is clear that there is only one bedroom and that the pool is near the main house.Anyway we are now making changes so as to have two bedrooms,another toilet and improve the plumbing. Regarding noises(dogs) we are in the countryside and this is part of it.Internet access is the fastest that one can have in this area.We will also put a sign to help our guests to find the place easily and quickly,especially at night. Our main goal is to offer all the facilities and comfort for people like you,who like being in contact with nature.We really appreciate your suggestions and we go on working to improve and offer our guests the best. Kind regards,
October 2015

We had a fantastic stay. The house is ok and we enjoyed the peace and silence. The location is perfect. All big cities can within 1.5 hours driving away. We visited Ronda and the flamingos.

My name is Mana and I like meeting people from different places. I respect multicuturalism and I enjoy reading, watching movies, doing yoga, travelling and hanging out with friends. I also love cooking ( I’m really good at it!), music and nature.
I live in the countryside, grow my own vegetables and I like walking around the yard, picking fruit during the harvest and make delicious jams with them.
Life is for me a treasure and I try to make the most of it by enjoying simple things. such as feeling the sunshine on my face and spending time with my friends. They are always warmly welcomed here.
As regards my professional life, during many years I worked as a pediatrician dentist , a job that I really loved. Today, as I´m not working I devote my time to painting and knitting lovely blankets, among other hobbies. I believe that creativity broadens the soul.
I really like being a hostess and I ‘d love you stay in my cottage where you will enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, while living in a place sorrounding by mountains and white Andalusian towns. Come and experience unforgettable delightful moments with us.
My sons are also AIRBNB hosts in Granada and Mallorca, so this is an amazing and rewarding familiar experience. I ‘ve spent lot of time with lovely people, that enjoy travelling and visiting new places. All this encouraged me to become an AIRBNB hostess and share my place too.
I´m an approachable woman and I will be glad to help you, give you all the required information and make your stay in Las Cabañas EL REFUGIO an experience you won’t forget and , I’m sure, you will want to repeat and also recommend to your friends
