Cottage
A traditional village property which rambles delightfully up and down over four floors, it has been beautifully restored, refurbished and updated by its English owners. The result is wonderful, both inside and out! A real home (the owners spend about half the year here), they have completely re-styled it with exemplary good taste. Whilst they have remained true to its traditional country-cottage style (its splendid original features have been carefully restored and retained), it is now finished to the very highest standards. With top quality furnishings, including some beautiful pieces imported from Mexico, and fantastic attention to detail, it all adds up to a really compelling and comfortable home.

Wir haben fünf wundervolle und entspannte Tage in diesem traditionell- spanischen Haus verbracht. Das Haus bietet einem alles, was man braucht: gemütlich und mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtete Zimmer, einen wundervollen Ausblick auf die Natur, eine voll ausgestattete Küche und einen schönen großen Pool mit Garten. Es liegt unmittelbar in der Nähe von kleinen Einkaufsläden, so wie von den Restaurants im Dorf. Dazu gibt es tolle Spazierwege durch die Natur, die quasi direkt vor der Haustür beginnen. Absolut empfehlenswert.

Afgelopen week hebben we onze huwelijksreis doorgebracht in Casa Estrella, Het huis was een grote mooie verrassing, heel veel ruimte, zowel binnen als buiten. Binnen zijn er naast de woonkamers een grote keuken en zijn er meerdere slaapkamers en 2 badkamers. 1 slaapkamer heeft een heerlijke veranda waar je uit de zon zit en heerlijk kan ontspannen. Ondanks dat we in de warmste tijd van het jaar in het huis verbleven, was het binnen in het huis helemaal niet te warm. Door overal horren en/of andere insecten werende gordijnen zijn er ook weinig muggen en andere insecten aanwezig. Naast het mooie huis was de tuin een echte verrassing. Een prachtig zwembad helemaal voor onszelf! Ook heerlijk om 's nachts nog een duik te maken onder de sterrenhemel De tuin biedt naast een tuintafel en barbecue meerdere plekken om te zitten of te liggen op de ligstoelen. Wat erg leuk is, is dat de 2 huizen naast Casa Estrella ook verhuurd worden door de eigenaren en sinds kort via de tuin met een trapje met elkaar verbonden kunnen worden, zodat je ook met grote gezelschappen in het mooie Alajár kan verblijven. Alajár is een heel mooi authentiek dorpje waar leuke restaurantjes zitten. De eigenaren Tony en Debby zijn hele warme, vriendelijke mensen en zij zijn heel behulpzaam. Zeker voor wat betreft het eten hebben Tony en Debby ons hele goede tips gegeven over bij welke restaurants je lekker kan eten. We zijn heel blij dat we onze huwelijksreis in Casa Estrella hebben mogen doorbrengen!

Last month we spent the best part of a week in Casa Estrella. It was everything we expected; a perfect distance from home to feel like we had got away but not too far for a long weekend. It's almost impossible to do it justice back in London, but like the food and the wine I promise it tastes better whilst you are over there. Well worth a week and good value for money if you like relaxing, self catered, swimming, walking, hills, great food in Linares, small town.... almost anything in fact.

I've recently returned from a four night stay at Casa Estella and although the weather wasn't kind to us, it didn't matter in the slightest because Casa Estella provides the perfect relaxing setting whether you're indoors or out. The fabulous and immaculately restored rustic charm is matched by the convenience of having all the mod-cons that made our stay virtually chore-free. We played games from the games chest around the generous dining table enjoying the local wine! And watched films in the extremely comfortable and cosy snug with the wood burner glowing. The beds and linen were luxurious, which aided the perfect nights sleep and there's a convenience store a stones-throw from the front door so picking up morning bread and eggs couldn't have been easier. Outside the double glass doors off the spacious kitchen we enjoyed our breakfasts around the large garden table in a completely private and peaceful setting surrounded by lemon and orange trees - divine!

I first went to Alajar around 9 years ago and immediately loved it. Although my stay this time at Casa Estrella has made me love it even more. The town itself is quaint and friendly with a couple of great places to eat and drink. The scenery is breathtaking and we enjoyed many walks around the local area. The house itself couldn't be more perfect, with lots of bedrooms, great living spaces and a lovely pool, with lemon and orange trees scenting the warm breeze. I would highly recommend staying here and we will be back for sure!

We stayed at Casa Estrella for three weeks in August with our 8 and 11 year old. The holiday was perfect. The house owners could not have been more helpful from the moment we enquired about booking the house and afterwards when my son had left his MP3 player under the sofa! The house itself is set in the village so you immediately feel part of Alajar with horses clattering past the bedroom window and a fruit van coming practically to the front door a couple of times a week. The people of Alajar are friendly and welcoming there are plenty of little shops and places to eat just a few steps from the front door. The house is very well equipped and there is a lot of living space. The outside area is beautiful and private with different levels and places to sit. The swimming pool is the perfect place to cool off after a trip to Seville or walk in the mountains. Our children loved it there, they felt safe walking around the village to go and buy sweets from the local shops and we all enjoyed sitting out in the square eating tapas (great value) and drinking a tinto verrano. The highlight of the holiday had to be the donkey ride to a local hamlet led by our neighbour.

It is rare for reality to match up with optimistic copyrighter’s descriptions of products. Estate Agents are notorious; celebrity chefs and their overpriced menus are not far behind; play reviews on Bill Boards outside theatres are not to be trusted. But here there was something that did live up to what it said on the tin and perhaps a bit more. We had heard reports of this idyll in the heartland of real Spain from friends who had visited previously. We had prevaricated (what could we do with the dog?) but eventually gave in, parked the dog with a relative and set off to Seville to follow the recommendation. An hour and half after landing we were there. At first the house seemed rather diffident and shy, modest and understated as it presented itself to us from the street. Its windows were like eyes that were tightly shut against the blazing September sun. However once the door was opened and the gloom dispersed by opening the shutters and letting the insistent sunlight flood in, then all modesty was dispelled. It was like the skirt being ripped off Cheryl Baker in the 1981 Eurovision Song Contest. As we moved through the house, veils continued to fall and the house revealed itself to be tardis-like in the number and variety of rooms and outdoor spaces. What was revealed was a house that is obviously loved as a holiday let has no right to be - cool and elegant with some fantastically creative flourishes, but comfortable and welcoming all the same - bits of Spain juxtaposed with the best of British. How is it, we wondered, that some are gifted with the knack of wrapping a piece of cloth around a lump of wood, leaving it looking like elegant drapery fresh from the pages of a glossy magazine? While others like us would attempt the same with the result that it would look like a piece of wood wrapped in cloth! The village has every amenity only a short walk away. There are towns that are fun to explore, hippies to greet and locals to chat to. No seaside, but a good sized swimming pool and lovely walks in the woods and over the hills. No nightclubs but cosy bars, cafes and restaurants, and the comforting sound of the Black Pigs snuffling through to cork oak forests as they prepare themselves for the dinner table. Yes we tasted “Real Spain” in more ways than one, and would recommend others do the same.

About the neighbourhood
Alájar is a delightful village with white-washed houses and winding, cobbled streets. There are bars and restaurants here which have both cosiness and character. Houses huddle around the village square and its narrow streets radiate outwards from there. Many consider it to be the most beautiful of all the region's villages. Aracena is only a twenty minute drive along scenic roads. A pretty market town, it is relaxed and friendly like so many here, set on top of the Gruta de las Maravillas (Cave Of Wonders), one of Spain's most impressive caves, and dominated by its splendid Moorish castle on the hilltop above the town. And even closer are two of the best restaurants to be found anywhere in Southern Spain. We wholeheartedly recommend Restaurante Arrieros in the nearby village of Linares and...
