                                                                  irene d.Rotterdam nederland

The house offers you all the comfort you need and much more. It's a nice stroll to the village Benamargossa. The sea is only a 15 minute drive, here you find lots of restaurants with the best seafood. We will certainly go back to Encantada!

                                                                  Lovely house on a hill with an amazing view

With great daytrips to e.g. Pedrogalejo, Malaga City, Nerja and many small authentic white villages. With your own petanque course, a great competition is guaranteed. Great views are all inclusive as from the terrace you can see the valley that consist of mango plantations (please try the 'mango of the house' as we were offered by Ramon and Esther (great hosts!). The swimming pool gives you the opportunity for a fresh relaxation (also with a view). We've had a great time and would definetely recommend the house for a short or a long stay! Henk and Alexa

                                                                  Oase van rust en ruimte!

                                                                  Perfecte tijd gehad in Encantada. Het huis ligt heel mooi op een berg met een fantastisch uitzicht, de weg er naartoe is stijl, maar goed te doen. Warm welkom van Ramon en Esther, lekker flesje wijn en de keuken is volledig ingericht met kruiden en olie en azijn. Op de badkamer staat heerlijke douchegel, bodycreme en ook aan wasmiddel is gedacht. In iedere kamer staan verse bloemen en het is overal schoon. Er zijn verschillende terrassen, zodat je rust, zon of juist schaduw op kunt zoeken. Het zwembad is heerlijk! Ramon en Esther kennen de omgeving goed en geven graag allerlei tips. De locatie is centraal, vanuit hier kun je allerlei uitstapjes maken. Ik ga hier zeker terugkomen!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Perfect vakantieadres

                                                                  Het was de tweede keer dat we dit paradijsje bezochten en we hebben opnieuw genoten van de absoluut fantastische plek. Als je hier niet tot rust komt, kom je het nergens. Vanaf een luie stoel eindeloos de vallei in turen, de geitenhoeder met zijn kudde voorbij horen komen, de boer op het ezeltje ... Ook bij minder goed weer is er altijd wel een plekje bij het huis waar je uit de wind en in de zon zit. De verschillende terrassen maken dat je eigenlijk amper weg hoeft voor afwisseling. Hoewel je dan wel een adembenemende autorit naar de Sierras de Tejada mist, of een bezoek aan of Malaga of het Alhambra in Granada en een dagje aan een van de strandjes aan de kust. De woning was schoon, er waren goede bedden (wat wij echt een grote plus vonden) en Esther en Ramon waren zeer hulpvaardig bij elke vraag om informatie. De indeling van huis en tuin maakt Encantado heel geschikt voor meerdere personen (bijvoorbeeld twee stellen); Kortom: dit vakantieadres zouden wij zeer aanbevelen.
