Nunca he visto una casa rural con tanta esencia, fenomenal..perfectamente equipada, guardando todo el encanto de su época pero acomodado para hoy día. Fuimos un grupo de 12 amigos, alquilando la casa de 10 personas y la de 2, comunicadas por el patio. Unos exteriores inmejorables, hasta con un grifo de cerveza que nos prepararon para nosotros. Y por la noche super a gusto charlando alrededor de la acogedora chimenea. Repetiremos en verano y con los niños, que también es genial para ir con ellos, hasta con pequeño parque infantil. Cien por cien recomendable, muy limpio, equipado y el trato con las propietarias perfecto. Además, a un paso de Granada.
