What can we say – The most beautiful setting for your lovely home – we heard nothing but bird song! Had a lovely walk with picnic to find Chris Stewarts house and gosh was it worth it! Drove to Marina Del Este for lunch and walked in beautiful sunshine. I'm sure we will return to this wonderful place.

Your place is magical and our time here too short! We hope we will return with our other daughter for a longer spell next time. The weather has been perfect. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

As you already know, we have had a fantastic time here for a week. It's only a shame it didn't last longer but we will come back for more. And with the three of us next time. We will keep in touch and let you know how it goes with Gabrielle (our baby due in May)! Cheers and see you again sometime next year.

Just wanted to thank you again for your hospitality and say that we really enjoyed being in your lovely finca, you have done yourselves proud, so much so, that when we arrived at our 4 star hotel in Roquetas de Mar, we were saying that there was no comparison with your place. Unlike your place the rooms were plain and bare with little imagination and the furnishings simple. You really do offer quality and I am sure with time you will be packed!

Following our visit this year, we have decided to come again early in the coming year. We can then look forward to enjoying your fine villa, gardens your lovely pool and truly amazing scenery once again. Thank you for the help you gave in so many ways.

Pedro and I want to thank you ever so much for having received us so generously. Your place is more or less like paradise on earth, so many flowers, so many roses and fruit trees, so many birds singing the best they can and such an amazing sky, full of big stars. It was ideal and we enjoyed every bit of our stay in your privileged Villa Castano. It overcame any expectation.

Spectacular mountain views, blue skies and sunshine, top quality accommodation and a pool by which to relax. What more could one need to enjoy a perfect holiday? Well there were exhilarating walks in the mountains with more views and wild flowers of every colour, the pretty white-washed villages where we enjoyed typical Alpujarran food. A return trip to see more of the beautiful city of Granada and also to sample a day's skiing in the Sierra Nevada is a must. There simply was not enough time to do it all.

We have had a really relaxing short break at your beautiful place. You were really great hosts and your warmth and care added an extra dimension to our holiday. The apartment was immaculate and the setting absolutely stunning. We are coming back again this year for a week as we all liked it so much.

Lovely! Lovely! Lovely! We have had such a great time. BIG thank you to you both for being so kind, thoughtful and a fabulous ‘background' support and full of local knowledge. I must return to sample more alternative therapies, the music scene and meet more of Zoe and Nigel's fascinating friends and hopefully the gorgeous Manolo de; Molinillo! With fondest best wishes.

Our holiday at Cortijo el Castano was beautiful and memorable in every sense;- it's setting, surrounded by the mountains, the bougainvillea and olive trees, and the casa itself in its stunning Morrocan style, with features to admire from every angle. The smells of not only the flowers in bloom, but of the fresh and clean air and the crisp white sheets on our comfortable bed. The most amazing sounds of splashing in the pool and the delightful calls of creatures day and night gently echoing around, reminding us they are part of this natural world. The touch of only high quality facilities which enabled us to enjoy many a relaxing day in and out of the warmth of the sun. Zoe and Nigel were welcoming, around when you needed them for local knowledge, and not around when absolute solitude was the preferred option. Would we return one day? Absolutely, and in a flash.... hence making a return trip to this lovely piece of paradise later in the year.

This is the perfect retreat for anyone wishing to leave behind the stresses and strains of city life in favour of a return to something simpler and more nourishing. It's a beautiful oasis of calm – from the riotous tumbling pots of plumbago and pelargonium to the welcome shade of the simple courtyards. The pleasure of being able to pluck fruit from the trees and herbs from the garden made every meal time a creative adventure, and the smells and tastes were, for me, as vivid as the dramatic scenery. Zoe and Nigel have spared no effort or expense in creating this lovely home and it bears the unmistakable hallmark of a labour of love, which they generously share with their guests. It's a place I will return to, in my mind, my heart and in my hire car!

Just to say what a great holiday we had staying in your apartment. What appealed to me was how you managed to strike a superb balance between providing elegant and quality surroundings/facilities and at the same time creating a homely and friendly atmosphere. I would also like to mention the attention to detail – absolutely everything we could possible y need was provided. It goes without saying that the surroundings are beautiful and the pool my absolute favourite thing! Many thanks and I look forward to my next visit.
