This was our second visit to the villa, with my parents and father-in-law. The villa was superb for everyone with most of the facilities on one level, a plus when the older people are unsteady on stairs.
Wonderful views over the Costa del Sol, quiet and peaceful for a relaxing holiday
The facilities in the villa are near perfect and Elma is very helpful with any information on the area. The equipment in the villa is everything that is required on holiday and the library is wonderful - I found a book I had been wanting to read for ages.
The shower in the second bathroom is over the bath which was a problem for the oldies, but we all used the shower in the master bathroom, separately of course!
The satellite system is tuned to a Dutch server with very few English language programmes, but who goes on holiday to watch Tv. However, it would have been nice to keep up with the English news etc. The second time we went we took English DVDs to watch.
The villa is close to the local supermarket, even though there is an uphill walk. Most days my wife and myself walked to the pueblo to buy the English paper and have a beer in the local taverna.
We spent most of the time around the villa but have travelled to Malaga, Benamadena Costa, Gib, Sevilla and Cordoba during our stays. The convenience to the motorway makes these trips very easy.
This has been a wonderful find and we are planning on going again during 2010
Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. For future renters, just to avoid any misunderstandings, the following English language programmes can be received on our satellite TV system: BBC HD, BBC World, Sky News, Euronews, CNBC Europe, CNN International, Bloomberg, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, Comedy Central, Hallmark Channel, all MTV Channels, Animal Planet, etc.
If you would like to watch your favorite movies it might indeed be a good idea to take your own DVD's.
