Fantastic house! Hard to say goodbye to.
We stayed at la Posada Romana with our family of 5 children and 7 adults at the beginning of May. We already had a good impression of the house through all the pictures on the Internet and the video on youtube, but when we arrived at the house we were not dissappointed. The pictures do it justice.
The track leading to the house was an adventure, especially the first couple of times, but we got used to it quickly. The house itself is fantastic. Everything looked really clean and the whole house smelled very fresh. The bedrooms were all very practical and big. The only thing lacking in our point of view was an extra bathroom on the top floor, but we solved that by putting the children in the rooms upstairs.
We especially enjoyed the practicallity of the house. The swimming pool and area downstairs, the open connection between the living room and the upper outside area was fantastic. We could enjoy the views from different angles. We were really lucky with the weather and we were really comfortable sitting outside on the terras every night until late.
The area around the house is beautiful. We once went for a stroll with the children and found a nice footpath. The village of Gaucin is beautiful with lots of lovely views. There were a couple of small supermarkets which had a good selection of almost everything.
We went on outings to the coast (Estepona, Marbella) and to Ronda. The route to Ronda is fantastic, with spectacular views. We visited Ronda before, but were again impressed with it's stunning views.
During our stay we had a lot of help from Diego, the gardner. He couldn't speak English, and we couldn't speak Spanish, but we managed through modern media.
The best way of describing how much we all loved la Posada Romana is by saying that absolutely no one wanted to leave. We all wished we could have stayed longer and were sad to go.
Thanks to Miren, Diego and Esther for providing such a lovely holiday home.
Im thrilled that you all loved the villa so much, it has indeed a very homely & relaxing energy, almost every family staying at the property has mentioned this.
Well I can only say that it has been wonderful to have had you and your family staying at the villa, you have looked after the property as your own home and I really apreciate this.
I look forward to see you visiting us again in the near future.
Wishing you all the best
Two weeks at Posada Romana
We enjoyed our stay and the property has a wonderful location with an amazing view. The garden and pool are lovely. Bedrooms and bathrooms of a high standard. Towels need to be replaced more often as were not soft and pool ones were tatty and we were surprised we did not get clean ones after week one. Although the kitchen is well appointed there were a number of issues. We were asked to conserve water but there was no sink plug. A number of the appliances either didn’t work, had bits missing or were broken. The hand mixer started as soon as plugged in and smelled terrible suggesting it was dangerous. There were lots of water glasses but only 6 wine and cava glasses. We bought more. The fridges were good. Lovely to have so much ice. Furnishings in living area nice. A pity Ikea bedspreads were put over indoor and outdoor sofas as these were constantly rumpled and coming off.
Dear Marianne, thank you for your comments, I will try to address the issues:
First of all I want you to know that every Saturday or every fortnight in between 10-18 people check-out at 10:00 am, and the same amount of guests check-in at 16:00 the same day, Therefore, my housekeeping team has only 5 hours to clean the house and make it look like a 5 star hotel again, they do wonders during this time, but it's impossible for them to check as well the hand mixers and other appliances, for that we trust our guest to let us know when they need to be replaced.
1. Towels, we try to be environmental friendly and dry our towels by hanging them to dry under the lovely Andalusian sun, which might cause them to be a bit rougher than dried in a tumble dryer.
2. Sink plug: Unfurtunatelly the previous family that stayed at the villa, threw the sink plug to the garbage by mistake, being a special sink plug I had to order another one from Germany, by the way, you forgot to mention that you got a new sink plug a few days after you told us it was missing as soon as we received it by post.
3. You were right, after reading your comment I checked the appliances and found the orange squeezer top part missing, there's a new one now, it's a real shame that you didn't tell me earlier, I always replace immediately any broken or malfunctioning items at the house if I'm told they are not working, next time please let me know, communication is essential in between us in order to provide you with the best holiday experience.
4. There's a bran new hand mixer now, I wish you would have let me know earlier.
5. Glasses get broken as you know, glass is very delicate, thank you for buying new glasses is very kind and very thoughtful of you, I really appreciate that gesture, having said that, I have lots of glasses in my storage to replace the broken ones, you should have asked Diego, he would have given you as many as you needed. I will anyhow remind the housekeeping team to be more aware of glasses missing since it is very important to have a full set at the villa.
6. I'm very sorry you didn't like the protection bed spreads we put over the sofas, you see, we cover the cushions with the bedspreads because lots of drinks get spilled over the cushions every week specially when there are lots of children, and it's easier to replace with clean bedspreads than to strip off, wash and put back the cushions of so many sofas every Saturday.
Beautiful views and house
We had an amazing stay in La Posada Romana, the views were out of this world and the house is beautiful.
Wir sind überwältigt von der Lage, Ausstattung und dem Ausblick.
Alles ist wunderbar. Der Ausblick am Abend einfach großartig. Die Betten super bequem. Alles vorhanden, was man für einen rund um gelungenen Urlaub braucht.
Die Anfahrt zum Haus wurde streckenweise ausgebessert, sodass man relativ gut zum Haus kommt. Nur noch ein kleines Abenteuer -zumindest für uns 9 Frauen. 😀Miren, Esther und Diego sind super nett und kümmern sich sofort. Esthers Kochkünste sind klasse. Danke für das Menue. 😋
Gaucin ist ein sehr schönes, blumenreiches Dorf in den Bergen, nicht weit vom Strand.
Vielen Dank. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.
Beautiful spot, a bit tough to access
The house and grounds are beautiful. The view is stupendous. The terrace is awesome. The house is clean and very comfortable. The house easily accommodated the 11 of us.
There are only two issues: 1) the access roads to the house are in very rough shape so you need a bit of nerve, good tires and,in several spots, constant acceleration to get to the town or the main road. (The owner is working on getting the road improved.) You can walk up to town, but that takes about 1 hour. So, it is not easy to get back and forth from the house; 2) the 3 bedrooms on the top floor (other than the master bedroom) do not have a bathroom, so users of those bedrooms either have to use the master bathroom or go elsewhere. (changing one f those 3 bedrooms to a bathroom would help.) And, on the pool level, the bedroom (there are 3 bedrooms on the pool level) closest to the room with the house mechanicals can be a bit noisy in case you are a light sleeper.
But overall, given the superb condition and beauty of the house and grounds, the overall comfort of the house, the views from the house and the wonderful assistance of the house owner (Miren) and Diego, the gardener/handyman, whenever we had any questions, we highly recommend the house.
Amazing stay in amazing estate
Beautiful environment and villa, great experience with communicating with Miren and Diego, just perfect!
Thank you Eva!!
