Perfect summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Delivered all our expectations both in terms of booking and stay. Lovely house with a fantasy view and lot of space. Our children loved the swimming pool despite the fact that it had to be cleaned through the stay, which was done to the fullest satisfaction. David and Richard (The pool man) very friendly and helpful. Will keep our summer vacation the same place next year.

Return Visit

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed in this villa three years ago. This year there were 11 of us. For large groups you simply cannot beat this villa for location, views and space. We had another great relaxing holiday and we will be back again.

Lake Vinuela Lodge - October 2010

  • 4 of 5

The villa is fully equipped and in excellent condition throughout, and there are large patio areas around a good sized (if cold at this time!) pool.

The views are spectacular as are some of the drives in the area.

It is only about 25 minutes from the coast road, but its still best to plan shopping and days out in advance.

Mike and Sue are the agents there and only live a couple of villas away and were helpful when required.

The only minor issue we had was that the site is claimed as wheelchair friendly (and basically it is) but we couldn't get the particular wheelchair in our party through the doors of the downstairs loo or into the downstairs en-suite.

In summary, I would recommend Lake Vinuela Lodge for a peaceful, comfortable holiday.

Return to Lake Vinuela Lodge

  • 5 of 5

It was good to return to the lodge this year as we knew what to expect having had a great week there last year.

The villa is very well equipped and ideal for a large family group with plenty of bathrooms etc. The views are breathtaking and continually change throughout the day. It is a wonderful place to just chill and relax as once you get there you won't want to leave. However, you do need to get orgainsed and buy your food supplies on the way from the airport as there are no shops nearby.

This year we did get out a little bit more, we went up into the national park behind the villa and saw some wildlife and flowers on the way. Some of us even went as far a Granada one day and on another day we all went to Nerja and soaked up the atmosphere.

It was good to be greeted on arrival by Mike, (who looks after the villa with his wife). They live nearby and so are on hand if needed..

We would have no hesitation in recommending the lodge for a relaxing, away from it all type holiday.
