Everything we want on a holiday

We’re asking Steph to post this review because we don’t do Facebook but we definitely do La Calera!

We’ve lost count how many times we’ve visited but we do know we came for the first time almost 12 years ago and we became hooked. On each visit we discover another layer of beauty and culture in the Axarquia region – and beyond. We feel immersed in the experiences we’ve had of the regional cuisine, music, and dance.

Steph and Terry are amazing hosts – incredibly knowledgeable about the local area, its history, its tourist sites and hidden gems. As well as the informative file of info in the cottages they will always be able to recommend a new restaurant, book a ticket for an event, give you the location of an off-the-beaten track feria (village festival), warn you of an unexpected public holidays or simply tell you which supermarket is closed today!

La Calera has everything we want on a holiday – laid back, tranquil, beautiful surroundings and immaculately clean, well equipped cottages. Terry’s care of the pool and gardens is clearly a labour of love while Steph’s attention to detail in the properties comes from years of hospitality experience.
