Wigan and Cooper Families

A superbly designed villa set in dramatic countryside but with a friendly and comfortable feel. Ideal for our 3 generation from 10 months to over 70's. Friendly and very able local support. A fantastic holiday. Thank you so much.

A & E

A spectacular villa - we told Miguel he is a genius and the location - like living in a watercolour. We loved the indoor art gallery - beautiful paintings. A fantastic holiday and to round it all off, an unexpected safari!

A & C

A little bit of paradise! Don't want to leave EVER! Fabulous home - want it!

O & J L

Wonderful week spent at the house. Would have loved to stay longer Great space for all the family who loved the pool, table tennis, pool table, and croquet, fantastic views, sunrise and sunsets and a very dusty car!


I have just stayed at your lovely house in Spain and wanted to say what a special place it was... how relaxing, child friendly and wonderful to stay in a place which was not only beautiful, but obviously so well thought out and welcoming with a real family atmosphere. Pilar had made it all spotless and having slightly dreaded holidaying with an 18 month old in that heat, I thoroughly enjoyed my week... I only wish it could have been longer. Having never been to Spain before I completely fell in love with the scenery and hope to return sometime soon. Thank you.


"Thank you for helping me rediscover my mojo in the place where you've found yours!"

Kirrilee and the Reid family

A home brimming with joyful exuberance. Intimate but shared and colourfully stylish. Everybody associated with El Tornero reflects its special life-affirming quality. Simply loved being here.
