Thanks for this, that is very helpful. Looking forward to advising you again a next time, Best wishes, Maaike van der Gevel, Vida Rustica


“Wij hebben een fantastische vakantie gehad. Wat een geweldig huis; zo liefdevol en smaakvol ingericht, met een groot gevoel voor de streek en haar historie. Het uitzicht ontroerend mooi. Door de stilte echt tot rust gekomen. Iedere avond Jesus die met zijn schapen langskwam. Lise een uitstekende gastvrouw. De tuin een plaatje; vele gerechten gemaakt met de kruiden die er groeiden. Uren geborreld bij de ondergaande zon. Echt…….een prachtige herinnering rijker. Breng dit aub ook over aan de eigenaren. Lise weet het al. Dank ook voor jouw bemiddeling en meedenken. Hartelijks, “

Liesbeth Leijssen, juli 2018

Beste Liesbeth, heel hartelijk dank voor jullie fijne, liefdevolle feedback! Heerlijk dat jullie het er zo lekker gehad hebben. Daar zijn de eigenaren en wij heel erg blij mee. Ook erg leuk voor Lisa, dat jullie het allemaal zo gewaardeerd hebben. Geniet er eerst nog maar even lekker van na, en voor daarna: graag tot een volgende keer! Maaike van der Gevel, Vida Rustica


“Wij zijn net terug van een heerlijke vakantie in Andalusie. Cortijo Cuevas del Marques voldeed
volledig aan al onze verwachtingen. Een prachtig huis in een prachtige omgeving. We waren er met onze 3 kinderen (22,18 en 16) en we hebben allemaal genoten van de cortijo, het mooie weer, het zwembad, het uitzicht, de omgeving. Een week was eigenlijk te kort. We gaan zeker nog eens naar Andalusie. Wanneer het zover is zullen we zeker gebruik maken van jullie diensten Maaike!

De foto is gemaakt toen ik ‘s morgens vroeg ging hardlopen. Kun je je voorstellen: iedereen in huis nog in diepe rust, je hoorde alleen wat hanen kraaien, de wereld werd langzaam wakker, en de dag nog blanco voor ons, in de verte onze prachtige “haciënda”. Ik voelde me de koning te rijk! “

Hilda de Jong and Erik van der Waal, May 2016

Beste Hilda en Erik, Wat een mooi relaas en leuke foto! Het geeft zo goed de sfeer weer. Fijn dat jullie van het huis en de omgeving genoten hebben.
