An amazing week has past all to quickly.
This beautiful – atmospheric house has been the setting for our stay. Our children, and their families.
We have celebrated my 60 year birthday, arranged by Morten in a place in the mountains called Morayma.
A beautiful place that we will remember for long.
With love from family Hångard Nielsen/Kate
Wonderful stay here. The house i very pleasant and the jacuzzi is truely helping during those hot days. The dumb waiter wasn’t really expected but was eventually helpful to lift the food to the top ☺
The rooms are very nice and comfortable
Greetings from France ☺
The house is very pretty, I really liked the little swimming pool, I also liked the room (I had the one with the stone in it)
Thank you <3 Claire McDonald
Two weeks to unwind, discover the rhythm of Albuñol, visit Malaga, Granada and Ronda and a few other places.
Yes, it was very hot, but the house is a ”cool” place to return to and the terrassses was the place to be for breakfast and dinner!
Ian and Héléne McDonald
As many before us we were struck by the beauty of the house, when we first entered the cool marble hall. Outside the blazing sun and dusty street, inside was cool and beautiful.We enjoyed our days in Albuñol and the surrounding area.
Thanks for now.
Christian & Tine Hassager
Thank you so much for borrowing your lovely house.
It exudes a love of Spanish culture and is an experience in itself. We enjoyed beautiful excursions and strenuous hikes.
Very best wishes Charlotte og Per Billesbølle
Thank you for borrowing your exceptionally lovely house.
We have enjoyed our last summer days in this year – completely.
Greetings Olivia, Maja, Astrid and Troels
Dear Morten and Berit
We have spent some wonderful days at your house. What a life one could live in these surroundings – and what a luxury you have in the house. We especially enjoyed the view on the terrace and the cooling pool.
Our compliments to the decor and the house, which is really in the style of its surroundings – a very authentic Andalusian experience to stay here! Now we will drive on towards Malaga, which is our last stop before all is back to normal in Copenhagen, and HOW we could easily spend another week in Albuñol and in these fantastic rooms!
Good luck with the house here!
With love, Inez and Lauritz <3
Dear Morten and Berit
We would like to thank you so much for letting us borrow this wonderful house in this cozy city. We have used the house’s terraces and swimming pool for sunbathing and enjoyed good and warm weather. In addition, we have benefitted from the house’s location to explore the mountainous areas nearby, both on foot and by car, and we made excursions to Spanish gems such as the Sierra Nevada and the Alhambra in Granada. There was also a trip to British Gibraltar where we were greeted by the naughty monkeys. We have eaten good food, both in restaurants in Albuñol and in nearby towns and in the kitchen here in the house.
Hug from Norway!

Dear Morten and co.
This is the last night for us in your wonderful and tastefully decorated house.
It has been a week filled with wonderful experiences inside and outside the house. The week has offered both city tours to Almeria, the Alhambra, mountain walks, and good food, and not least we enjoyed the lovely terraces. It takes your breath away when you first step out onto the terraces – WHAT A VIEW !!
We had a full day of hiking where we started (and ended) in Busquistar. Passed through 3 small white villages (Fondales, Feriola and Pitres). In total 12.4 km and 700 altitude meters! We were proud (and tired) when we reached Busquistar again after 5 hours! But the trip was well worth the effort.
You eat well at Casa Pepe and we were lucky to get his paella despite ordering it the same day.
Thanks to Morten for all the tips – they have been used diligently.
Also, thank you to Carmen for cleaning for us, we did not unfortunately get a chance to say goodbye ☹
We could easily have spent a week more, but then, this is a reason to come back☺
Many sunshine greetings from the 5 from Odense and 1 from Berlin☺

Dear Wulff family
Thank you for an amazing week in your amazing house. We have enjoyed ver much the magnificent terraces and the lovely views from there.
We had encredibly beautiful trips to Travelez, to Polopos (real good tapas at
”La primera Sourisa Bar”) and to Adra, where we enjoyed a nice fish meal at” El Turron” in the harbour.
We hae fond memories, that we will revisit on the cold winter evenings, of all the evening meals that we took at the grand terrace, while the stars appeared one by one.!
Thank you very much

Dear Wulff family
We have had a most incredible week here in the House of the Blue Ray.
The atmosphere here is really unique!
The way you have furnished the house and all the fine details everywhere makes the stay in this house a most adventourous experience and a most beautiful oasis to be staying in.
In every way it has been a very positiv experience to be here in Albuñol and in Andalucia.

Esperamos que la vida nos depara otro encuentro en el futuro.
Muchas grazias por todo y hasta la proxima.

Dear Wulff family
We have enjoyed this very warm week in your, nothing less than amazingly beautiful and tasteful summer chambers here in Albuñol.
A visit to both Almeria and Granada is a must for everyone, but best of all for us were the times we spend, mornings and evenings, at your beautiful view terrace– what a solace for busy urban souls.
The daily vists by Carmen made our stay even better – I wish she could be cloned J

This was our second stay in the beautiful palace and our first stay with our 1.3 year old little boy. It was such a wonderful place to enjoy and experience with our family. Our son spent the week exploring each level and area and he especially loved dipping his toes into the plunge pool and splashing around in the warm afternoons (as did we!). The Moroccan interior and matching outdoor spaces are so inspiring to be amongst but also the perfect refuge to read or simply meditate on life. I really enjoyed afternoon siestas on the terraces in the deck chairs. But my favourite times were late nights sitting under the stars looking out across the valley at the almond groves and enjoying a glass of local Spanish cava along with a great chat.
We all look forward to our next visit to the beautiful Andalusian Palace.
Athena, Mathias and Remarius.
We enjoyed our holidays in your beautiful house, thanks for using your house.
Sun, good food, silence, just a place to get a good rest.
Our kids loved the pool and the privacy on the roof terraces. Even our two ”older” daugthers (16 & 18) had a good trip. Thanks for the WiFi.

Dear Morten and family
Thank you so much for an extraordinary week in this amazing house – we have enjoyed alle the beautifully decorated rooms and not least the terracesJ, the pool, and the grotto (for climbing, according to Jacob).
The weather was perfect (sunny and 20-30 degrees), and we enjoyed very much taking to the mountains las Alpujarras, eg. both Capileira (including a hike in the abandoned town) and Travelez (the ”ham” town) can be highly recommended.
Also thank you so much for all the advice and ideas for trips to be made, Morten.
Families Heesses + Juul Christensen (Denmark)
PS: We can really recommend the The beach ”El Ruso” not least as a beach for children
Dear Morten & family
Once upon a time there were two families who sought shelter from Denmark cold autumn rain and fallen leaves . They ended up in Andalusia in the House of the Blue Ray. Here they quickly felt at home among the Marroccan pillows, the Arab lamps and the many terracess. They liked the scent of jasmine. They liked it when Emilio dished up with raciones that could feed a whole army (and thus the two families ) & with “cafees con leche” along the long counter of the bar, to the sound of Spanish TV . Pepe’s paella made us almost addicted, as did the wine at the bakery. The two families went on trips to the mountain towns , they frequently walked la Ruta del Gato and gracefully dipped their toes into the azure waves of the sea where shoals of exotic fish lived. They headed towards Granada, but Alhambra did not impress them to the same degree as the very authentic Albuñol . Now, the two families are sitting on the roof terrace, enjoying the morning sun and views of the mountains . We thank you deeply for this experience and have a great desire to come back to this little oasis in Andalusian Albuñol .

Dear Berit and Morten
After one week in your amazing palace we can’t but conclude that this place is the perfect spot for a silver-wedding anniversary – now you know, when your time comes.
We have stayed 3 generations in the house the oldest, at 91 years, on her first trip south of Rotterdam. She – like us – really appreciated the Hamam and the terraces. Our main anniversary lunch was taken at the “Chiringito” and thanks to Morten for arranging the grand reception and the best table at the restaurant with a magnificent view over the sea. In the evening we had tasty cheese and red wine in a class by itself, enjoyed at the wonderful star terrace. We have been on excursions to Las Alpujarras and have enjoyed the laid back atmosphere at the small cafes. La Rabita has wonderful for beach trips, but we missed the “Russian beach” this time. We visited Almeria during the heat of the day, and we now know that we should have done as the Spaniards – relax during siesta and save the towns for the evening! We are now headed towards the stalactite caves of Nerja, on our way to take the “kids” the airport. Then we, the silver wedding couple, will go on for a few days stay at Alqueria de Morayma in Cadiar, and finally for a one day’s stay for the Alhambra. Thank you for this time – it tasted more PS: acc. Our friends The hotel Las Conchas in La Rabita was a very nice place. Many greetings
Naomi & Bjørn, Mira, Marius og Joachim – Astrid og Liv.
A very big thank you for 2 splendid weeks in your wonderful house, that you have renovated with such much care. We enjoyed dwelling in the house and especially enjoyed relaxing on the stunning terraces. The weather was great, after all, not too hot. We used the days to explore the area went to both Almeria and Granada several times . The two young men ( James and Albert ) took a hike to the ridge of the mountain and ended up with a pint of beer at Serafin´s. We went to Las Alpujarras twice and can recommend it, especially mountain hiking in Travelez excited everyone. Thanks for all the good recommendations including restaurants and cafees . We used all your recommendations extensively ( Puga , Navarro , Lupion , Fefi ). We were regulars at Chiringito where we ate all lunches when we were at the beach, and on Serafin , where the boys were especially fond of the Tapas . All in all a fantastic vacation here in Albuñol Yours sincerely

Dear Morten og Berit
What an amazing house!
Thank you so much for lending us this wonderful oasis. The weather has been perfect (20-25 grades) so we have occupied every corner of the beautiful terraces – depending on the need for sun or shade. We have not been much out and about , but we have explored the town , enjoyed its atmosfærde , its ambience , the very friendly and welcoming residents and not least its fun shops and cozy cafes . All in all a wonderful week . Best Regards

Many thanks for an exceptional week in your wonderful palace in the real Andalucia. We have enjoyed the house and the souroundings so much, and even been around to see Granada and Travelez. A really beautiful trip to th Alpujarras, where we also went hiking.
We had the beach ”El Ruso” completely to ourselves, and spend many days swimming.
Thank you for all the good advice send us before we left for Spain. We found it very useful, even if we did not do it all.
Carmen was so sweet and helpful. And what an advantage we have, that two of us speak Spanish.

Dear Morten and family
As Hispanofiles our expectations to the house and the stay here in Albunol were very high, but all our wishes were fulfilled.
We have enjoyed all details in this beautiful house, with its strong Andalucian ambience and its hint of the roots of the area.
On bare feet we stepped on the cooling floors of marble, we felt the soft rugs, and immersed ourselves in the hammam. We went to Cabo de Gato, to Almeria, Trevelez and Granada, and have now shown our Australian friends the ”true” Andalucia.
We ate a lot of tapas – and bought juicy fruit and fresh mejillones from the fine local Mercado.
Kathrine og Erik (Denmark)
We have now ended out week here in Albunol. We have had a fine and relaxing week and also done Granada. The house live one hundred percent up to our expectations!
We also had great food in the area.

So many thanks for a fabolous stay!
The house was like a dream taken form the tale of ”Arabian nights”.
We enjoyed very much the wonderful terrace with the kold pool, that we used after a day. Now we aere headed back home to rain and cold weather but with the large dose of vitamin C we probably will survive.

Dear Morten and Family
So many thanks for letting us use this house. We have really enjoyed it. There are several good ”leftovers” in the fridge for you, as we know you will be arriving tomorrow. Most of it very good stuff
We had one small accident as my young son broke the glas on the fan in his room – it happened on sunday so we did not have the time to exchange it.
FOR NOW ALL WE WANT TO ADD IS SEE YOU AGAIN SOON.
Best of wishes from all of us. (Denmark)
Despite bad weather we had a memorable holiday in this happy house.
We celebrated a 60th birthday by gathering 3 generations in this wonderful miniature Alhambra.
This is the best thing we have done for a long time, so many thanks for renting this beautiful spot to us.
Also many thanks to Carmen. It was wonderful with all this help, in particular when there are also little ones.
Ole Ishøj, Sine Wrang Thomsen, Anne Katrine, Joachim, Carla Olivia, Andreas, Lise (Sj. Odde, Denmark)
It has been a very special experience renting your house.
We have enjoyed the terraces and the view every day and Emma has been particularly happy about the pool, the rock and the food elevator!
We can certainly also recomment Fefi and her good coffea. Hun was also sweetly arranging a dinner with rabbit for us which Emma was very pleased about!
It can certainly also be recommended to go to Almeria and eat with Casa Puga. It was a fantastic dining experience and on the top 3 together with the rabbit, and the paella at Rincon de Guillermo in La Rábita.
We also found a wonderful tapas bar in Adra specialising in fish and shellfish. The Local rosé may Recommended. We have forgotten the name of the bar, bt it was a side street off the main street.
Don’t forget to shop with the beautiful and helpful girls selling fish at the Mercado. And if you have children the playground is a hit between 6.30 and 8 pm (according to Emma 5 years).
Last but not least, thanks to the beautiful Carmen – always smiling! (Emma is very happy for the teddy bear named “Prince Peter”).
Hope all visiting will have a great stay and REMEMBER: always bring swimsuits with you when you go out.

What an amazing Restauration – the house lived up to all expectations and more. We were all able to relax and unwind in such a calm and beautiful environment.
Carmen was lovely – bringing us her organic vegetables and making pleasant conversation.
The town soon became familiar – the bells, the shopping and just watching the people….
We hope to return.

It has been a fantistic and lovely holiday. To be privileged to see and stay in your amazing Palads, to see the way you have decorated the place, and simply to admire the harmony and beauty, has been lovely. Also, that you were willing to spend you holiday on taking us to special places around various parts of Spain, and not least a wonderful last evening with with good food, wine and a starry sky. Thank you for wanting to be together with us Oldies.
Big hugs to you all from

Wishing I could stay more than just 2 days – I love this house! It was great Det var mange Very cozy and nice.
Relaxing in the pool, sitting on the terrace, watching the stars, eating traditional breakfast food at Fefi’s and going to the beach “a la Rábita” – all wonderful experiences. Matthias is a great tour guide
Love the design of the house too – good work!
Love, Eleanor (USA)
It has been 14 lovely days in Andalucia. The mountains and the small villages of the Alpujarra have been well worth a visit. To go walking between the small villages North of Orgiva is beautiful, men hot. To watch the sun go down over the hilla is a breathtaking sight. Rábita is a nice beach, and the beaches in Almeria and Nerja were also lovely.
Unfortunately, Casa Puga was closed when we got to Almeria. We thank the Senora Fefi for all the lovely cafesitos, we will miss them.
