The tranquillity of a picturesque mountain village

Júzcar is one of the villages that make the River Genal valley one of the most beautiful places in Andalucía. Once in the municipality, a visit to some of the streams that flow into the River Genal is recommended. The Sierra del Oreganal, the background to the area, is the source of much of the water that gives the valley its name. One of the most beautiful spots is right beside the river and the old tin factory. It is a very quiet spot, surrounded by nature, in the municipal district of Júzcar but on private property. But it is still a symbol to the local people, as it represents their recent history. Although it is not in very good condition, you can still see the architectural structure it had when it still produced tin for the country. In Júzcar it is also said that it was the model that inspired the blast furnaces in the province of Vizcaya. It is next to the River Genal as water was needed to produce the alloys of tin.

The banks of the River Genal should be visited here in Juzcar and in other neighbouring villages. The streets in the village itself are also well worth strolling around, and there is a wonderful view of the valley from here.

  • Just back from 10 glorious days in Jubrique, what a lovely part of Andalucia it is, isolated, off the beaten track and so friendly. The village has great tapas bars and restaurants and the locals were really helpful and welcoming. The house is fantastic, very spacious and grand while also being simple and traditional. Despite being walking distance from great bars it's very private and enclosed with lovely views across the valley. The house and village was exactly as described by Colm who also provided good directions to get there. Key collection was straightforward from Ingrid who lives in the village, the house was cleaned by Maria, a neighbour, and a gardener came most mornings to water the plants and clean the pool. It was a perfect backdrop to a lovely family holiday, can't recommend it highly enough.

  • Our 2 night stay in La Retarta was great. Jubrique is a lovely little white village and the house offers a wonderful view over the valley and surrounding mountains. A fabulous place to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine while the kids jump around in the pool.
    Colm was a great host responding to my queries promptly. His house keeper, Ingrid, was amazing! She returned my friends kindle,driving out of her way to drop it at my friends house.
    I would certainly recommend a stay at this villa. My only request is that tea towels are provided in the kitchen

    Response from Colm:

    Many thanks for your kind comments, and for leaving the house clean and tidy, always appreciated. Apologies over the tea towels, an oversight, they should have been supplied with the bed linen and towels as nomal.
    Regards,
    Colm

  • Magnifica estancia, Casa Pilar cumple con las espectativas creadas con el anuncio, esta limpia, es acogedora, cálida, y la atención por parte de Colm es sobresaliente.
    Si uno busca tranquilidad, y cercanía a la serranía de Ronda es una opción ideal.

  • The house was ideal for our purposes - an extended family gathering. We loved the house, the garden and the village - people were friendly and the housekeeper made us feel very welcome. We loved the fact that one side of the house opened out onto a village street (with a vibrant local bar) while the other provided a much more rural aspect, looking down to the valley of the Genal and up towards the mountains all around. The swimming pool was a major asset.

  • AMAZING!!
    We had the pleasure of staying in Colm's beautiful villa in August. As a 'grown-up' family, space was a priority and we were not disappointed to find such a large and traditional interior and outdoor area. The winding mountain journey to Jubrique was breath taking and seemed never ending then tucked away in the middle of it all as a tiny white speck on the horizon our little village destination. Jubrique is one of three villages separated by rolling mountains and a 45min drive. The views were stunning and made us feel like we were a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. Mountain walks and natural lakes for swimming were all part of the package and easily accessed. Relaxing by the pool, sampling the delicious spanish produce, enjoying the views, and the alfresco dining all made it very difficult indeed to leave the comfort of Cortijo Retarta. Other than a trip to Ronda, (a must), and pottering up and down the maze of white buildings and narrow streets talking to the oh-so-friendly locals, there really wasn't much more we wanted from our 10 day trip...
    We would all go back in a heart beat.
    Thank you so much to Colm who was very helpful answering all our many questions before our trip and also to James and Ingrid - who were on tap to provide essential Spanish tips and knowledge of Jubrique and to Rory for supplying us with fresh produce from the garden and interesting stories and history of the area.
    We hope to see you again!!

About
I'm involved with Rural Accommodation is the Genal Valley, Serrinia de Ronda, Malaga, Spain since 2002, and I only came for a holiday! The Genal Valley is dotted with 17 Traditional White Villages (and one smurf blue), and has a unique unspoilt countryside. The micro-climate makes for mild winter and lower temperatures than other places in Spain in Summer. Ideal for walking, mountain biking, painting holidays, and energetically doing nothing at all. More info: Come on over, you won't be disappointed.
