Encontrareis paz, tranquilidad y unos parajes muy bonitos y ni que decir tiene que tanto Breda como Thierry son unas personas super hospitalarias y acogedoras, te hacen sentir como en tu propia casa.

Studio Paqui was just what I wanted: a comfortable, quiet, rural place where I could enjoy the views, smells and sounds of the countryside. Breda and Thierry are very friendly, attentive and discreet propietors who made me feel at home.

La habitación (apartamento) es grande y muy completo con una terraza privada muy agradable y con bonitas vistas. Los propietarios son muy amables y pueden dar consejos sobre lo que se puede hacer en los alrededores.

Nous n'avons séjourné qu'une nuit chez Breda et Thierry , mais nous avons tout suite eu envie d'y revenir. Le cadre est magnifique, et les hôtes chaleureux .

We had an amazing couple of days at Breda's place in Cortes. The finca is within walking distance to the station and some local bars and there are walking routes up to the larger village (about 45 mins walk uphill - much easier down!). The apartment itself was beautiful and clean - we slept very well here. kitchen has everything you need for a couple of days too. situated in a beautiful valley. we were kept company by Pepper and Luna their dogs, and Breda, her husband and daughter were all lovely. hope to be back!

Quel bel endroit que la maison de Breda et Thierry. La chambre est très agréable et l'environnement pousse à la farniente. Nos hôtes ont été vraiment très accueillants. Un petit coin de paradis. Idéalement situé pour une virée dans les villages blancs. Nous recommandons chaudement ! Merci encore pour cet agréable séjour.

Breda at Thierry sont super sympa et disponible quand vous le souhaitez. Nous avons aimé le calme du lieu, le cachet de l'appart, un coup de cœur ... En toute simplicité

Breda and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. The house is beautifully situated in the mountains in a small village. The apartment is cozy and intimate. A lovely bed anyway. We could also use the pool. All in all a pleasant stay

The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped, the swimming pool is fantastic, the surrounding area is really pretty with some great walks, and the hosts Breda and Thierry could not be more welcoming and helpful. There are a couple of very nice restaurants in the nearby village which is in walking distance and several more restaurants and bars in the town of Cortes which is a short drive away. And for a change of scene the train from the nearby station runs to Ronda for a really interesting day trip. Would highly recommend. In fact I am already planning my next visit.

Lovely, comfortable, well equipped apartment, in beautiful countryside setting, 5 minutes walk from village with a couple of bar-restaurants and train station. Bigger town just up the hill. Run by lovely couple, who could not be more helpful. friendly and welcoming.

A magical escape from the fast and the furious. I’m not sure when it dawned on us that this was the most perfect family holiday we’d ever had, but certainly by the time we bid our reluctant farewells, we were already trying to figure out when we could come back. The quality and attention to detail offered by Thierry and Breda is apparent in their generous, unfussy hospitality that has made so many of their guests feel relaxed and welcome here. As for activities, well Dad went cycling and fishing, Mum went horse riding, teenage daughter became an almost permanent feature in the hammock with her book, when she wasn’t cooling off in the pool. The little one had plenty of space for games, exploring and playing with the dogs. There was charming beach not far away in Manilva, and Ronda, with its rich history and stunning views and architecture, can be easily reached by car or train. Like I said: the perfect family holiday.

"We have had a lovely time. We stayed for two weeks, together with our near two-year-old daughter. We stayed there at the end of May, so the weather was perfect for us; sunny and warm, but not too hot. The finca is located in a beautiful valley and Grazalema natural park itself is wonderful. Most of all we much enjoyed the hospitality of Breda and Thierry. They are very friendly, kind people, who make you feel welcome and at home and like to give you advice about things to do and see in the area, including local activities, festivals etc. We can absolutely recommend both this area and Finca La Rana Verde. For us it was a very relaxing experience, even with a little toddler!

A stay at Finca La Rana Verde was idyllic from the comfiest beds ever to the beautiful mountains that surrounded the area. Breda and Thierry were excellent hosts and we ate there every night as the food was so tasty, there was no need to eat anywhere else. Finca La Rana Verde is well located although we highly recommend hiring a car as the trains are pretty infrequent. There are some excellent walks in the area and Ronda and Cortes are lovely places to visit. Thank you to Breda, Thierry and Alannah for a lovely, relaxing stay.

Myself, my partner and our five-year-old boy spent a lovely week in the apartment at Estacion de Cortes de la Frontera. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially hanging around in the grounds or by the pool, plus wandering to the local bars. The hosts really made us feel welcome and helped us to discover the highlights of the area, including the Pileta caves and Ronda. We will definitely return!

Thank you so much for your hospitality! We enjoyed a wonderful stay. Really a special experience! Thanks! And last but not least, thanks for the wonderful delicious vegetarian meals that you prepared for us!
Maarten and Mike (Holland)


What an amazing stay we had here! The beautiful scenery, your hospitality and kindness and delicious food made it unforgettable. As a birder, daily sightings of Griffon vultures, short-toed eagle, bee-eaters... gave me a smile. Even a Bonelli's eagle showed up! Thank you! And the best of luck in the future!
Dimitri and Julie (Belgium)

Your gorgeous pool was such a treat, you really did provide everyhing we could have hoped for and more. Thank you for all your great tips on places to go and things to see and for welcoming us so warmly to your home.

I'd like to thank you and Thierry for your kindness during our stay. We appreciated the your helpfulness with our travel and also introducing us to the local culture. Definitely a memorable part of our holiday, feria included!

Listening to Ella Fitzgerald, we enjoy the darkness silently filling the valley. We had a great time here - walking, diving into the pool, admiring Sevilla, Ronda and the wonderful villages of Andalucia. You have a very fine and quiet place so near to the river and in addition to all the other things, you appear to have a superb collection of music!
Berend and Joke, The Netherlands


We loved the secluded location and charming and hospitable multilingual hosts. Wonderful for kids and adults alike, with a lovely pool area, and the whole holiday was a restful escape. We look forward to coming again next year!

We've had a superb week! We enjoyed the views, the bbq and, of course, the pool! The villages, the cave, the winding roads with spectacular landscapes: it was an experience to come back to. Thanks very much for your hospitality.


We have had a wonderful stay. We came for some time out, some splashing in the pool and quiet evenings chatting as the sun went down, we have had everything we came for and more. Thank you so much for everything. This will always be a treasure of a holiday.


Thanks for the wonderful time. You've made it a really beautiful place to relax.


We had such a perfect, easy-going time and are about to go home and recommend it to all and sundry. It's such a perfect spot and we'd love to come again. Thanks for a great holiday.
