The most perfect, most beautiful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is set right up on the hill, giving lovely views to look at while you're relaxing. There are plenty of different places to sit in the sun or in the shade, or even lay down on the outdoor bed! During our stay the weather was rather hot (about 38*C), so we were pleased that the pool was big enough to hold all of our group to cool down in. William was very helpful and friendly on arrival and offered us towels to rent and gave us information on what where was best to visit. The nearest town and supermarkets were a very short distance away (5mins) and the nearest beach (which is very tourist friendly) was only 20minutes away.

There were a lot of rooms at the house that were all nice and well equipped. The beds were comfortable and we were thankful for the air conditioning. There are plenty of eating areas and a barbecue which we used a lot.

To pass the time we played darts, ping pong, croquet, basketball, swam or sunbathed. All available here.

The garden apartment was very private and quiet and seemed to be the coolest of all the rooms.

There was also an path with orange and lemon trees that were lovely and a cat that would occasionally sit under the trees.

Overall our whole group really enjoyed ourselves and didn't want to leave. It was so quiet and relaxing. It's so perfect that the pictures don't do it justice. I highly recommend this home for a week (or two) in Spain.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful property for a week and despite some unusually wet weather had a fabulous stay. The owners were very welcoming and very prompt at attending villa if we had a problem. We stayed as a party of six adults, the villa is surprisingly spacious with every facility you could need. The villa is right on the edge of town in an elevated position with the most amazing views. The gardens and pool/barbecue/outside bar/patio area were well maintained and the garden gets the sun all day.

We had a wonderful time exploring the local towns and enjoying the local tapas bars.

We would definitely recommend this villa, ideal for family's or larger group of friends.

Wonderful place to spend a week or more.....

  • 5 of 5

The villa was clean and fully equipped with everything we needed and was really quite luxurious as I think this is the owners actual house for part of the year. Part of the basement area was made into a playroom for children and was full of a variety of different toys. The kids loved it...

The owners were very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble for them.

What I will always remember is sitting in the garden first thing in the morning with my coffee looking out over the valley, the views were stunning, you feel on top of the world.

A great place to base yourself to explore Andalucia. You will need a car if you stay here.

A great place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at William's villa at the start of November and had a wonderful time. There were 8 of us and we fitted easily into the house. It is a great place to use as a base to explore the province of Malaga and well worth booking to do the Kings walk (Camino del Rey) which we loved. The house was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. William was very helpful in recommending places to visit. We would love to come back again and would highly recommend the villa.

Urlaub so wie man ihn sich vorstellt....

  • 5 of 5

Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld war wirklich gut, obwohl nur in englisch konnten wir uns gut miteinander verständigen. Wir wurden herzlich empfangen und das Haus entsprach unseren Erwartungen und stimmte auch mit den Fotos überein... Sehr netter Vermieter , der sich um alles kümmert und wir fühlen uns gut aufgehoben.

Besonders möchten wir erwähnen, das das Haus wirklich sehr persönlich eingerichtet ist und man sich wie zu Hause fühlt.
