We've enjoyed a terrific holiday in Steve and Sheila's lovely home between Pinoso and Jumilla

  • 5 of 5

Having never visited mainland Spain for a family holiday before, we were taken aback by the spectacular landscape surrounding the wonderful Casa Estrella. The views from the spacious property were enjoyed throughout, particularly whilst making the most of the great swimming pool, lovingly maintained by Steve each norning. The house itself had everything we needed and more and there were really nice personal touches we appreciated. We were a family of four but the Casa could easily house much bigger groups with loads of room to spare. The highlights of the holiday were watching the clearest night skies you can imagine, shooting stars aplenty and enjoying the many festivities in the town of Jumilla as our trip coincided with their Summer fiesta. It was really good. We drove to the coast (approx 1 hour 15 minutes) a couple of times to enjoy lovely beaches with plenty of room and also enjoyed trips to Murcia which is a very nice city. We strongly recommend this terrific property and area as ones that will provide you with a great holiday experience and in Steve and Sheila you will benefit from really helpful and considerate owners. We had a really good time. Thanks!

The best holiday I have ever had!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Estella for 11 nights and honestly had the best holiday ever.

This was the first time my family have stayed in a villa.

Steve met us at the airport and took us back to the house where Sheila was waiting to welcome us. The moment we arrived we realised that the size and beauty of the house and grounds simply cannot be captured in pictures.

We stayed with three different groups of friends and their families over the course of our 11 nights and each said how stunning the house was.

Nothing was too much trouble for Sheila and Steve and they were available at all times. In fact we welcomed their company as they are both so lovely! Casa Estrella has everything you need and more.

The house is so relaxing and the views are beautiful. Sheila and Steve had some large speakers for us to use which we plugged our music into and the noise could not be heard by the kids sleeping upstairs.

Both Jumilla and Pinoso are a short drive away. We ate in both towns. Food was really tasty and bill so cheap! We attended a fiesta that Sheila suggested and loved seeing the real Spain.

We arrrived back last nite and planning next year at Casa Estella. Thank you Sheila and Steve.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Large group of us visiting this beautiful house including teenagers, what a great time lots to do and see, wonderful grounds to lounge and read in the luxurious outdoor area. Large clean swimming pool and outdoor bbq and dining area. Sheila and Steve made us very welcome, introduced us your some very special restaurants which were so good very reasonable with the best selections of local wines. Weather was very good and we enjoyed our much needed break. The inside of the house is so comfortable with every home comfort and convince. Highly recommend Casa ESTRELLA and will definitely be back.

Sheila and Steve have great knowledge and suggestions on visits to local areas of Pinoso and Jumilla. Grand daughter loved her two pairs of very trendy shoes she purchased for a fraction of the price back home. Many thanks She ila and Steve.

Perfect relaxing haven

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned feom a truly memorable and relaxing week at this lovely villa.The area surrounding the property is truly stunning with contrasting mountains and flat farm land groaning with fruit.If you are looking for great and very inexpensive Spanish food and lovely local wines then you are just a short drive away to two fair size towns with all the shops and eating facilities you would require.There is also a local market there once per week.

The villa itself delivered on every front and is exactly as described.It is beautifully furnished with just the right balance of quirky, traditional and modern.Sheila and Steve have provided everything you could possibly need and then some.

The outside space is just as stunning as inside ,perhaps even more so.The centre space is occupied by a beautiful pool which has easy and safe access and a shallow end for less confident swimmers.There are plenty of sun beds and chairs round the pool and a lovely shaded area if you prefer.

Sheila and Steve could not be more kind or helpful,the perfect hosts.Our holiday was meticulously planned with their help and advice and nothing was too much bother.All in all we had an amazing holiday in this home away from home and would thoroughly recommend it.

Drink wine and look at the stars

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 7 women who have holidayed together and stayed in many villas over the years. This was wonderful. The inside has retained so many of the original features, it is so spacious and affords guests many different areas to relax and remain cool, no matter the outside temperature. The pool area is excellent, plenty of sunbeds to relax and enjoy the wonderful views and eat outside both during the day and in the evening. The property was spotless and Sheila and Steve took care to ensure all needs were met and even helped book amazing places to eat and enjoy local food and wonderful wine. Prices in this area are unbelievable, bars and restaurants were local Spanish dine from a modest 9 Euros including the best of wine. There is also fine dining on offer, again at amazingly low prices. This is an area that offers an insight into the real Spanish life. Local people enjoying eating out with family and enjoying all that the area has to offer. The property sits between the two towns of Pinoso and Jumilla and even if you don't want to travel further than this there is plenty to do and see. Try the local wine from Jumilla and look up at the sky from Casa Estrella, this is as good as it gets,

Sensational villa, sensational sunny weather

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed at the villa. As before, the weather was sensational - only equalled by the sensational facilities the villa offers. Excellent for a relaxing break, it offers too many facilities for me to mention here. Great for a family reunion or groups of friends. And large enough not to be tripping over each other! Peaceful and secluded, it is however within reach (short drive) of local villages and restaurants.. using taxis or sometimes Shiela and Steve actually drove us there!

Now i need to gather the family together to plan another reason to visit this lovely villa !

We live on the border between Alicante & Murcia. Casa Estrella is equidistant between two towns Jumilla which is Murcia and is known nationally and internationally for its wine and food. Pinoso which is in Alicante has always been one of Spain's wealthier towns because of locally sourced marble from Marble Mountain. The welcome in both towns and in the local village & town bars and restaurants is always friendly and authentic.

We have free wifi and great internet access
