Client Reviews for Hacienda La Parrilla Alta

We had a wonderful time at Hacienda La Parilla Alta, with friends and family. They were there with us to help celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. A few months earlier, Aileen from your UK office had suggested that your local rep, Niki, might be able to help us organise a suitable celebration. She did just that, and far exceeded our expectations. Thanks to her, we have such happy memories of a moving ceremony in the hacienda's own chapel, with an English speaking Catholic priest. Niki - thanks so much for all that you did for us. The anniversary day was made even more special, thanks to the fantastic buffet prepared by Maria, the hacienda's house keeper. Paella, torta, tapas - for 20 people - all beautifully cooked and presented in the grounds. Maria is a gem - for the fortnight we were there, we were presented with a series of wonderful Andalucian dishes, always prepared and served with a smile. She is so resourceful, too, helping us wth shopping, laundry, with the local doctor on one occasion, and with fixing a tyre on another. By the time we left there, we had developed an enormous respect for Maria - the hacienda and it's setting are truly stunning, but even if they were not, Maria alone would be enough reason to return in the future. I shouldn't let the Hacienda's charms pass like that, though. The house, the gardens and the surrounding vineyards and olive groves are far beyond anything you could show or describe in your brochure. We just couldn't believe our eyes when we first arrived there. La Parilla Alta is a place of great peace and beauty. I won't hesitate to recommend La Parilla Alta to friends and family. Either the hacienda or the people would be reason enough to stay there again - the combination of the two together is unbeatable, in my experience. Thank you so much.

Another lovely holiday in this most beautiful place. Maria Jose, always wonderful, has excelled herself, adding babysitting to her portfolio, and cooking great food for us and the babies. Thank you everyone.

What an amazing time we have had staying in this beautiful house - swimming, chatting, eating delicious food - especially the paella. The highlight was going to the absolutely brilliant flamenco show in Jerez. It was memorable and totally authentic and non-touristy.

Thank you so much for a totally heavenly week - it couldn't have been a better antidote to Costa del Sol life. The house is gorgeous and a highlight was watching the sunset from the tower. Hope to return!

Dreamy days in this scorching location. Blessed by a cool bedroom, Maria's wonderful cooking and the beautiful swimming pool.

What a fantastic week! Beautiful setting, house and a great area. Maria Jose made the whole trip immediately relaxed and comfortable. Good cycling country if you get the chance!

This has been such a fabulous place to have a family get together. We have loved it all, the house, the gardens, pool, delicious meals from Maria (wish we could take her home). Highlights have been sherry tour in Jerez, the Saturday tour to the Yeguada to see the beautiful horses and their foals, lovely Medina and Arcos. We loved Zahara de los Atunes and the beach next to the hotel, sunbeds, brollies, beautiful sand and sea. Finally we had an amazing authentic evening with music and dancing at a flamenco show, it was complete magic. Ask Niki where to go as you need to book. Thank you Maria, the owners, the estate staff and Vintage for a wonderful holiday.

We have had a wonderful week enjoying the heat in the beautiful peace and quiet. The pool was a perfect place to spend the day, interspersed by delicious meals thanks to the lovely Maria. Cadiz and Jerez made for excellent day trips and the tour of the estate was so interesting thanks to Juan Miguel (especially the piglets). Baby Imogen especially enjoyed every minute. Thank you all for a really great week.
