This property was a disappointment compared with the other four Airbnb properties we stayed at in Spain. There were valid reasons given by Sophie for the house not being as well presented as it could have been but even so, the whole place seemed run down and unloved. The rooms and location were nice though and it was fun staying in a quiet, regular Spanish village rather than a tourist town.
My niece and I stayed at Casita Francesca for one glorious week. Although I have visited the Lecrin Valley many times, this was my first stay in Chite. It is a lovely village that is convenient to the motorway and to shops, restaurants, etc.
The Casita was perfect! We spent time in the ground floor great room which was filled with the morning light and was steps away from the outdoor covered terrace and pool. Although we spent our fair share of time in the local restaurants (Thai Elephant in Restabal, Bar Garvi in Talara, etc.), we did take advantage of the new Mercadona in Niguelas and cooked dinner in the casita a few times.
On the first floor, there was a large bedroom with an enormous bed, a small but adequate bathroom and a sitting room that doubled as bedroom number two (there is a comfortable sleeper sofa). From the sitting room, a door leads to the terrace and then stairs lead up to the rooftop sun terrace. The views over the valley are spectacular. It is truly one of my favorite places on earth!
Our hostess looked after our every need without being intrusive in anyway. She delivered fresh bread to our door each morning and even joined me for an amazing horseback ride through the hills in a neighboring village. We also visited the only lavender farm in Andalusia - Casa Lavanda located in nearby Restabal. There are so many interesting sites to see in the Lecrin Valley. I will have to save a few for my next visit. I cannot wait to return!!
