Oh my! Photos cannot do justice to how singularly beautiful this place high up on the hill above the beautiful whitewashed village of Frigiliana. We had an amazing, peaceful time in Lola's place -- our only complaint is that we didn't plan to stay longer. We would love to return and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice getaway in a special spot. The views! The walks! The varied outdoor spaces for sitting and basking in the sun! Fantastic.
This is a very comfortable, relaxing house to use as a "home base" for exploring the area. I would definitely recommend it for a family (we were mom, dad and two kids ages 18 and 21), and we spent 3 happy nights. It was December, so no swimming pool use for us (pool was drained) but we sure enjoyed sitting on the patio and soaking up warm sunshine. (Being from Boston, this felt glorious to us!) Nights were chilly so we appreciated the space heaters in each bedroom and the fireplace in the living room. Masonry walls retain the cold, as do floors so we wished we had brought slippers. We wore our shoes inside, instead. Several of us walked into town one day, but appreciated the lift back from the one who drove -- this is quite the mountainside location! Once in town, we realized our house was DIRECTLY above the oldest, quaint part of Frigiliana -- too bad there's no direct path between this house and the town. One more caution: make sure someone in your group is brave about driving on steep-drop off roads. The drive to the house is not for the faint of heart!! Loved our time here, would happily return.
Really wonderful place with spectacular views from four different terraces. It's perched above the village of Frigiliana, at the beginning of a very nice trek to the summit of El Fuerte (about 2,5 hours r/t). Very nice mix of traditional house with modern interior design, a powerful fireplace (useful in February), secluded, with a sea of space. All three of us liked it a lot. Highly recommended.
Todo genial, perfecta comunicación con Lola desde primera hora, además nos acompañó hasta la casa desde el pueblo. La casa es una maravilla, en un enclave precioso rodeado de naturaleza, no le falta detalle, todo muy bien cuidado, lo recomiendo 100% para una escapada rural.
Lola was a great host. We could reach her easily by phone and she met us in Frigiliana to show us the road to the house. One time the electricity went down and Lola came over immediately to fix the problem. Staying at Casa Maria was wonderful; the views are even more beautiful than the pictures could capture. We had great weather, were outside the whole time, swam in the pool everyday, made a bonfire at the terrace. The walk to Frigiliana is beautiful, along fruit trees and sweet scenting flowers. The village itself is very picturesque and friendly and has good restaurants. The house was very comfortable and clean. We would definitely recommend this place and would love to come back one day.
