Guests about this villa

“We hebben de afgelopen twee weken een geweldige vakantie gehad in Grazalema en het vakantiehuis Cerro de las Palomas. Alles voldeed aan onze wensen en hebben genoten van het huis, privacy, rust, cultuur en dieren. Onze gedachte gaan uit om volgend jaar dit prachtige huis weer te boeken. Groetjes,”

Ton Cremers, September 2018

Beste Ton, Hartelijk dank voor je terugmelding; heerlijk dat het jullie zo goed bevallen is in Grazalema! Als je de data weet, dat jullie weer zouden willen gaan, dan ga ik het meteen weer voor jullie regelen. Graag tot dan! Hartelijke groet, Maaike, Vida Rustica


“Graag willen we laten weten dat wij een supervakantie gehad hebben in Grazalema! Cerro de las Palomas was een zeer aangename vakantiewoning, heel mooi gelegen, al het nodige aanwezig. Inderdaad wel een uitdagende weg om op de berg te geraken, maar eenmaal boven een uitzicht om stil van te worden. De eigenaars Sergio en Jero verdienen nog een speciale vermelding, echt hartverwarmende mensen! Dankjewel Vida Rustica! Groeten en tot een volgende keer,”

Elke en Hans, April 2017

Beste Elke en Hans, Heel hartelijk dank voor jullie enthousiaste feedback! Fijn dat jullie zo genoten hebben. Ik zal het Sergio en Jero ook overbrengen. Graag tot een volgende keer, hartelijke groet, Maaike van der Gevel, Vida Rústica


“We have just had a beautiful week in Grazalema staying in Sergio’s Vida Rustica villa. The villa’s location was spectacular. The drive way up to the house is not for the faint hearted. Sergio and Jero met us and made us feel extremely welcome. The villa was very comfortable and stylish. We had a lovely walk through the national park with Sergio. Thank you Sergio and Jero. We would love to visit again. Kathy & Dean. “

Kathryn Morgan, January 2016

Dear Kathy and Dean, Good to hear that you have enjoyed your stay in Cerro de las Palomas! I will forward your kind words to Jero and Sergio, they will be very proud! We would be very happy to welcome you again some other time. Best wishes, Maaike


 

“Wir verbrachten bei sehr warmen Temperaturen eine erholsame Woche in den Bergen von Grazalema. Die Vermieter waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, alleine schon bei der An-bzw. Bergauffahrt. Unser Auto hatte grosse Mühe, den Bergweg zu schaffen, wir hatten leider kein Dieselfahrzeug. Die Aussicht und idyllische Lage waren beeindruckend, das Haus sehr liebevoll und großzügig eingerichtet und wir konnten alles nutzen. Ein Ventilator in jedem Schlafzimmer wäre schön gewesen, auf Grund der hohen Temperaturen. Wir konnten verschiedene Tierarten beobachten und ausgiebig im Pool baden. Natur pur.
Vielen Dank für die Empfehlung und herzliche Grüsse aus Randberlin,”

Jacqueline Müller, July 2015

Liebe Frau Müller, Wie schön dass Sie eine erholsame Woche hatten! Wir werden den Eigentümer raten bei diesen extrem hohen Temperaturen ein Ventilator zur Verfügung zu stellen. Herzlichen Dank, Maaike, Vida Rústica


“Graag wil ik laten weten dat je advies om te kiezen voor Cerro de las Palomas een uitstekend advies was. Beter kon voor ons niet. De eigenaar, Sergio, is een uiterst sympathieke man die om de 4 dagen het zwembad even kwam doen. Hij spreekt goed Engels. Ook de aankomst liep zeer soepel. Binnen 5 min. was Sergio met zijn vrouw bij de benzinepomp.

Wij hebben genoten van de rust en het uitzicht. Een niet te lichte diesel auto is aan te bevelen. I.v.m. de steile en bochtige weg (toerit van ± 1200 m.) Wij hadden een Renault Megane diesel en dat ging goed. De twee hekken door, dat heeft wel iets. We voelden ons de koning van Swaziland:-)

Wij hadden natuurlijk ook wel het beste lot getrokken m.b.t. het weer. Elke dag zon en rond de 30 graden. Een heerlijk koel zwembad en soms wel 16 vale gieren erboven!

Sergio heeft dit fantastische huis zelf gebouwd. Overal dubbel glas en elk raam voorzien van een hor. Met de dikke muren blijft het binnen dus koel. Zij hebben het huis met liefde gebouwd en met smaak ingericht. Het is brandschoon! Buiten veel planten en dat alles maakte dat wij ons koning voelden.

Hartelijke groet,”

Jos Tollenaar, May 2015
