lovely accommodation great location

  • 5 of 5

Firstly I must say we are already planning our return visit to this villa!! This accommodation is large and well appointed and very very quiet - a must for me. The bedrooms and bathrooms were well appointed. The sheets were lovely and soft. The beds were unmade only because we hadn't said if we wanted one or two rooms but it took moments to put sheets on and there was plenty of linen in the spacious wardrobes. The beds were firm but very comfortable. The stand alone shower is a bit tight but the water pressure was great. The views from the terraces of mountains all around were wonderful.

It was hard to find - make sure you have printed off directions in case you can't get a mobile signal.

The swimming pool was lovely and very private (not communal as part of the description says). Quite deep so not very child or non swimmer friendly. We arrived very late due to flight delay so it was nearly 9.30 pm before finally got there. The neighbour who is the key holder does not speak English and any Spanish we knew had deserted us but we worked it all out between us.

We had picked up a few provisions on the way including a bottle of wine which was quite warm so the fact that lots of glasses were stored in the door of the freezer was a welcome surprise.

The only downside - and a surprising one - was the lack of a welcome pack. No tea/coffee/milk / dishwasher tablets. Especially as milk is usually long life in Spain so could be bought and left there well in advance. So the first morning there - Sunday - my husband took 2 coffee mugs and walked the 100 yards or so to the nearest bar/cafe and returned with 2 coffees for our breakfast! No idea if they are used to selling coffee that way but they did so happily. Of couse we could have had coffee in the bar but with the fantastic views from our terrace breakfast on the terrace was a must.

Take your binoculars - birds including raptors - to be seen.

Fantastic house in a great position

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication with the owners, who have taken into consideration every detail. The pool is a good size and the gardens is very pleasant in the evenings with lovely views. The village is just a 2 minute walk away so very easy for tapas and drinks.

Definetly be back.
