  • 5 of 5

Great holiday superb large pool which was great for the children. All views were spectacular. Short drive to the local beaches. Road up to the villa is perfectly safe and a short distance from the local

town where there are a few bars and restaurants. Recommend for a peaceful family break.

Great Holiday Property

  • 5 of 5

We have now spent a number of our Summer holidays at this great Villa. If you are looking for a place to have a chill out holiday you can not get better than this. The Villa is a family home, with all you would expect, Washing Machine, Dish Washer, Fridge Freezer TV with DVD and Video. There is a selection of films to watch at the villa. The accommodation is clean and well kept. The private pool is just fantastic to sit by and dip in and out as you please. The location is out of the way of others and you will need to hire a car to get there, there are lots of good places to eat within a 20 minute drive. For those who are a little more into traveling to some of the sights in Southern Spain this is an ideal spot to travel from. We will continue to return to this holiday location as long as we are able. For those with young children you can supervise them at the private pool without the worry of them getting involved with others. The views across the mountains and toward the lake are just stunning, it is such a pleasure to wake up and sit outside for breakfast with such a wonderful view. Fully recommend this holiday location and this Villa.
