The villa is set in a tranquil location very close to the National Park in Alcaucin and offers extensive gardens (over an acre) with plenty of space to relax and unwind. It has a superb large heated pool (11m x 5m) which incorporates large entry steps on which children can play and paddle. The adjoining terrace offers high quality sun-loungers, seating and three tropical sunshades. The villa comprises of 5 large bedrooms (sleeps 12) with adjoining en-suites. The large fully fitted kitchen provides you every modern convenience including an American fridge-freezer. The breakfast area has seating for 8 and includes a large flat screened TV with satellite channels. WIFI is also provided at the villa - just bring your laptop or tablet.

This room provides floor to ceiling windows offering direct access to the outside terrace and affords views across the gardens and pool area. There is also another dining area which provides a more formal setting for dinner.

The extensive covered terrace (14m x 4m) provides guests with an idyllic location to dine 'Al Fresco' and offers superb views of the surrounding hillside and valleys. There is an oversized typically Spanish dining table with seating for 8. To complete the picture there is a large built BBQ adjacent to the terrace.

For the more sporty guests, we have included a table tennis for use during their vacation.

Please note that there is also a separate downstairs WC and separate utility room.

The villa is suitable for all year round rentals and is particularly good for walkers and hikers in the cooler months as the National Park is approximately 5 minutes drive from the villa.

                                                                  Second visit as good as the first

                                                                  Dr Stephen Hill

                                                                  Spent a week at the villa in October 2017, 3 years after our first visit. All was as we had found it the first time - a bright, spacious and immaculately cleaned villa with a very generous welcome pack and a really helpful host (thank you Dennis). The weather wasn't as good for us on our second visit but the addition of the hot tub more than compensated for this and it was a great place to while away cooler evenings. Delighted to recommend this villa and the wider area and already planning a return visit!

                                                                  Nice villa

                                                                  Alexander L.

                                                                  Nice villa, shame about problems with pool (unable to use first day due to chemicals. 3rd day experience leak and unable to use slide as water levels dropped too low) and hot tub experienced problems with filtration (scum on water) and not all jets working.

                                                                  Otherwise would go again


                                                                  Jo S.

                                                                  I cannot recommend the villa enough, we were a group of 10 (6 adults, 4 children) and the villa was perfect for all of our needs. The children absolutely loved the pool and slide and the villa itself was so spacious and well laid out so that it didn't feel like everyone was on top on one another- the air con was a god send too!!

                                                                  Dennis who looked after the property was fantastic- nothing was ever too much for him and he was always on the end of the phone should we have a question.

                                                                  Location was great as the villa itself is pretty isolated but near enough to the local beaches (approx 20 min drive) or in less then 5 mins you will be in the picturesque village of Alacucin which I would highly recommend a visit to to get a taste of real Spanish life. There are local supermarkets and restaurants nearby if you don't fancy cooking but the villa is so well equipped if you do and the BBQ was a fantastic size too.

                                                                  Booking was very simply and easy with Karen and again all of the information provided beforehand was great to help plan our trip further.

                                                                  We cannot wait to go back!!

                                                                  Villa is amazing and has everything you need as a home from home.

                                                                  Paula C.

                                                                  Host Denis was so helpful. The villa is exceptional and is as described. The views are amazing. We all had a great time. Lots of space for 3 generations of our family. Thanks again for a great stay.

                                                                  fantastic well equipped villa!

                                                                  Alice F.

                                                                  The villa is well equipped and an ideal size both inside and out for a large group.

                                                                  The outdoor space was enjoyed by all from the pool to the BBQ area whilst offering plenty of outdoor seating and lounging.

                                                                  We would like to thank Denis for his help throughout our stay. He was on hand to offer information on the local area and always available if we had any issues at the villa.

                                                                  We would highly recommend this villa after experiencing a fab week here!

                                                                  Thank you to Karen for making booking this villa so easy, the information provided prior to our holiday was of great help!

The villa is approached via concrete drive directly from the road. - therefore no 'off-road' driving required to reach the villa.
