Aga from Warsaw, Poland, October 2013:
The genuine experience of Andalucía

"I spent a great time in Cortijo Flamingos. I chose October to avoid the height of the tourist season, still to enjoy the early autumn in the South, which is much warmer and sunnier than in the north of Europe. And I really couldn't complain :) In my opinion the greatest advantage of the place is its authenticity. Located in the idyllic village, somewhere in Andalucía is just the perfect solution for everyone willing to take a break from a busy city life. It has nothing to do with a typical tourist destination, so lack of huge hotels and aggressive restaurants that force you to be a guest. Instead of it: a natural landscape, an ability to participate in everyday Andalusia life. The property owners are friendly & helpful. Always ready to advice on where to go, what to see and what was especially appreciated by me - ready to share their culinary knowledge and skills. Thanks to them I had opportunity to taste the Andalucía cuisine at its best. The variety of fishes and sea food bought at the local market were perfectly prepared during barbecue evenings. By car you can easily reach some of the finest attraction of the region. It takes one day trip to visit Cadiz, Jerez de la Frontera, Gibraltar, Ronda, Malaga or Sevilla. Lovely place, lovely people, I highly recommend if you search for a real taste of Andalucía."

Wonderful and relaxing week

"We visited the area of Chiclana just out of season and had a lovely week away. The villa was a little further from the beach than we had originally anticipated however this didn't really effect our holiday and the hospitality given from Kasia and Peter more than made up for it all. The accommodation is one of two outhouses to a small main villa, with a beautiful garden and pool area, which looked stunning both in the day and night. We were fortunate enough to be the only guests during the majority of our stay, and we were definitely looked after by Kasia and Peter. We were met in town upon our arrival, greeted with a lovely breakfast each morning, shown through town at the start of the week, and were even treated to an evening BBQ hosted by Kasia and Peter, where we had a wonderful experience preparing, cooking and eating various fresh fish, which we had purchase earlier that day with Peter from the fish and meat market.

Perfect spot for young families
"We stayed at Cortijo Flamingos for 9 nights and really enjoyed it. We have a 1-year old daughter and in our 'casita' we found all the necessary things. She just loved going in the jacuzzi with her dad. In the evenings, when our little girl was asleep, we would make dinner in the outdoor kitchen and have a nice meal by the pool. We barbecued with Peter and Kasia (the owners) twice, which was a fantastic experience. I don't think I have ever eaten so much fish in one evening. Cortijo Flamingos is a perfect place to go with young kids. They will enjoy themselves and be comfortable. And as parents you will have enough opportunities to relax yourselves and really feel like you are on vacation. Peter, Kasia and Michal, thank you for a great time."

Juan from Sevilla, Spain, September 2013:
Unas VACACIONES en mayusculas.

"Unas vacaciones maravillosas, un sitio perfecto para descansar y disfrutar de las vistas y el relax. Los dueños Peter y Kasia son unas personas encantadoras y que siempre están pendientes de que estés cómodo y no te falte de nada. La barbacoa, piscina y jacuzzi es una pasada, y la barbacoa que tuvimos con Peter y Kasia fue una velada muy agradable. Si volvemos por la zona no dudaremos en repetir."

Louise, Jerry and Ollie from London, UK, September 2013:
"We booked cortijo flamingos as it seemed like extremely value for money and as our first family holiday with a 5.5 month old, it seemed a great choice. Intimate casitas in a well organised and secure villa. From the very beginning, I was extremely impressed with Kasia and Peter. They were excellent at keeping in touch and helped us with their local knowledge and helpful tips before we even stepped foot on the plane. I would highly recommend cortijo flamingos to those with children and couples. It is beautiful, welcoming and a great base to visit nearby areas such as Cadiz and Jerez. Kasia and Peter are extremely friendly and personable an make you feel at 'home' immediately. If you are travelling with children, this place is great!! As they have a child themselves they are ready to help with needs for the little one. In short, great place to stay. If we are in that part of the world would definitely go back Xx"

Day trippers base paradise

"Fantastic place to stay with incredible friendly host, wether you want to to stay in or use it as a base for daily trips to any of the nearby towns and chill-out in the afternoon. Kasia and Peter made our stay comfortable, so pleasant and we use all their knowledge and local contacts to make the best use of the location and the amenities, we will definitively come back, a 10 out 10."

Mikolaj from London, UK, August 2013
Brilliant stay

"We've stayed in Cortijo Flamingos for nine days in August. It was a great holiday and we would recommend it to everyone. It's rural location so you definitely need a car but we always rent a car anyway so it was not a problem. We were spoiled for choice of beaches. Every day different beach. The owners are very attentive and they made us feel very welcome. They have a vast knowledge about the area so we were happy that someone could direct us to great places to see and to eat. The Cortijo Flamingos itself is very clean, well presented and contains everything you need. We were with our eight years old daughter and she loved it as well. The rooms are spacious, very clean and nicely done. Everything looks brand new. The outside area is very nicely done as well. We loved hot tub and swimming pool as well as outside barbecue area. There is basically everything for everyone's needs. We are hoping to go back there next year."

Steve R from Limerick, Ireland, August 2013
A little bit of Paradise
"Cortijo Flamingos was all we hoped for and more. From a complimentary hamper of local Snacks and Wine on our arrival, to the beautiful private pool area, and of course the wonderful hosts Kasia and Peter. Kasia and Peter were eager to help out with any queries/questions we had, as well as supplying advice and information about the area and it's amenities. They even went as far as bringing us to a local Fish Market to purchase some fresh fish which we then brought back to the Casita and were shown by Peter how to clean and prepare. That night, they joined us in a barbecue of the food we had bought and prepared that day! There is an outdoor bbq/cooking area located just off the pool, which is perfect for lunch or a lazy dinner. The Casita itself was fantastic. Spacious and clean, with Air Con, Flatscreen tv, a large Bathroom area, and very comfortable furnishings. There was a hairdyer, which my wife was delighted with, and an Iron can be supplied on request. Also, for those who want to head out for the day, there was a Beach pack for rent at a very cheap ?5 (2 Chairs, Cooler Box, and a Bag with beach towels) and also Bikes were available too. We would recommend Corjito Flamingos to anyone in a heartbeat."

Peter te lo hace facil

"Coqueto apartamento bien equipado en las afueras de Chiclana, especial para parejas y mejor aun sin niños ya que no son muy amplios. Todo lo que necesites lo tienes, terraza, barbacoa, piscina, jardin, parking privado, wifi amabilidad, Algo alejado del centro y con carretera muy bacheada 1 km antes de llegar. Sus propietarios te lo haran aun mas facil. Recomendado."

Maria y Silvio from Bilbao, Spain, August 2013:
Un estancia maravillosa.. repetiremos
"La estancia en el cortijo flamingos ha sido maravillosa, intentaremos repeti el año que viene, nos alojamos en la casa verde, la casa estaba fenomenal, la cama muy comoda, todo muy limpio, nuevo y muy cuidado, era increible despertarse con el sol luciendo y desayunar al lado de la piscina, pero lo mejor sin duda Kasia ,Peter y Miguelito..(je,je)..Encantadores, simpaticos, siempre pendientes de todo .Muchisimas gracias por hacer nuestra estancia inolvidable."

Great place to relax in Chiclana coastal area

"This place is a nice setting to relax in a bed & breakfast setting. Swimming pool, jacuzzi are available. BBQ and outside kitchen enables you to cook your own dishes (fresh fish from the market). Owners are very helpful and always willing to give you advice on the best places to visit around. All of this creates a friendly and family atmosphere in which you can feel on holiday instantly. Note that the road to the place is stony for about 2 km and you need to drive carefully and slowly to get there. There is no view on the sea as you are in a rather remote area, outside of the village of Chiclana in a residential area, but this brings you quietness if you want to just relax, read a book alongside the pool or have a glas of wine in the jacuzzi. From that place you can organize excursions to several interesting cities (Jerez de la Frontera, Cadiz, Arco de la Frontera, Tarifa, Puertos Blancos, ...) so that you stay for a week there and visit all the region around. In conclusion, you get good value for your money in a laid-back atmosphere. We enjoyed having BBQ dinner with the owners and the other couple that was staying there at the same time.

Viagem ao paraiso :)
"Casa com espaço espectacular, excelentes condiçoes os anfitrioes sao pessoas extraordinarias muito amaveis e atenciosos. Recomendo vivamente para quem procura uma semana de paz e relaxamento."
"We arrived at Chiclana after an 8 hour trip from Portugal and were received at the house by the most wonderfull hosts we could ever imagine. The house it's just amazing and beautifull but the best part is getting to know the people behind all this project. My wife and i absolutely loved our week at Cortijo Flamingos. We can't wait to return again."

A little paradise

"Very beautiful place with great conditions: the house is very clean, classy decorated, with everything that is needed to comfort stay. The owners are friendly and hospitable, and it was pleasure to experience their kind care. They were also always ready to help in planning and organizing interesting trips to all those legendary places the Cortijo is just in between. Cortijo Flamingos is a perfect place for active as well as passive way of spending time; there is also a cool jacuzzi, swimming-pool and barbecue and a lot of space for a nice and romantic time during the day and night. What's also important- the owners are excellent cooks so it's really worth tasting their cuisine! We had magnificent holidays here and we've already been missing this piece of a paradise!"

Incredible stay in a small and personal B&B

"We've met this wonderful couple who run this B&B. Because our flight was delayed, they were so friendly to pick us up in the middle of the night. For us holiday started! With a great welcoming package and overwhelming hospitality we felt very welcome. All the days we had good conversations during the evening and sometimes in the night when our son was asleep. Not only our room was clean. Also the garden and pool were inviting. We stayed in the Casa Roja which was a little bit bigger then the Casa Verde. It's ideal when you travel with a child since they offer babybed and babychair. We liked their hospitality so much, we returned the same holiday. When they continue like they welcomed us, I think they will be booked full in a matter of time.

Marilu y Carlos from Spain, June 2013:
Buen sitio para descanso, tranquilidad y relax.

Todo estaba perfecto,limpieza,orden,amabilidad,habitacion con todos sus complementos y las instalaciones al aire libre como piscina, yakusi y terraza reunian todas mis expectativas para descansar.

Anna and Jam from UK, June 2013:
Brilliant service, fully recommended...

We were greeted with smiles and a very warm welcome when we arrived. Both Peter and Kasia were very helpful and informative. The apartment we stayed in (Casa Roja) was modern with a rustic charm, clean and had all the necessities at hand. The pool was devine and the sunset views from the roof terrace were enough to take away any stress from work and home. The location is rural and very tranquil, yet easy communication to most popular towns and tourist destinations, such as La Barrosa beach, Cadiz, Jerez etc. The breakfast was a delight, freshly cooked and mouthwateringly presented. I would definitely recommend the clarrified butter scrambled eggs! In short, a lovely stay in beautiful, natural surroundings, we will definitely be going back...

Linda and Bob from UK, June 2013:
"During our short break our hosts welcomed us by explaining everything about the lovely accommodation and also the beautiful area where it was located. The well equipped accommodation was luxurious with the benefit of not just a spectacular swimming pool, but also a hot tub for special relaxing evenings where we were able to see the incredible sunsets. One of the best places that we have ever stayed in and would most certainly recommend it. A hidden gem."

Joanna from London, UK, May 2013:
Lovely, quite place

"Lovely, quiet place in the rural area run by very nice, friendly young couple. Excellent value for money. The little cottage (my one was the "Green") contained everything I needed like kettle, cups, plates, cutlery, little fridge, microwave, tv (not that actually watched anything - too busy lounging by the pool). Very comfortable bed (important due to my back injury years ago while skiing) and enough storage room for clothes and belongings. Patio with the pool is pretty with beautiful effects in the evening when pool is lighten up with different colours. There is a built up barbeque and dining area next to it. What took me by surprise was the "Welcome Pack" which I received upon arrival - basket containing a bottle of Spanish bubbly, some Spanish specialties and bottle of water (the owners do not recommend tap water for drinking). Having a car is definitely recommended to allow you to visit nearby famous cities like beautiful Cadiz, Jerez or even Seville (only about 1.5 h drive) I had a lovely time in Cortijo Flamingos and was well looked after by the owners. This was my first visit but I am definitely planning to come back."
