Long weekend in Spanish paradise

  • 5 out of 5
What an inspirational place! We relaxed the moment we set foot in El Refugio. The setting was stunning and it was difficult to move away from the pool area. When food and drink beckoned we sat outside the incredibly well equipped kitchen for hours. The home had everything to could want or more - we would recommend it to anyone.

Exquisite villa and location

  • 5 out of 5
Flew out for 4 days of idyllic sunshine in a fabulous villa. Comfortable rooms, beautiful pool and 10 minutes drive to a beautiful beach with fabulous bars and restaurants. It was thoroughly relaxing, tastefully furnished and well equipped.
I hope to return with the family in 2012.

Sensational secluded Spanish stay

  • 5 out of 5
We recently stayed at La Herradura is this wonderful characteristic villa seductively balanced on the secluded hillside above the town of La Herradura. With views from every angle it was hard not to spend the days gazing into the horizon marvelling at the brilliant sparkling sea and wondering at the hillsides and the fabulous nightly sunsets.
The inside of the villa has an eclectic and sumptuos decoration with most interesting artifacts and original artwork gathered from all over the world, but with the terrific weather it is the outside that was always the most favoured with the terraces and pool area being very popular and the covered dining area and barbeque was absolutely perfect for every mealtime giving much needed shade at different times of the day.
This is a perfect villa if you want to get away from it all with family and friends but I would recommend a car for popping down to the lovely seaside town for the essentials and a bathe in the warm welcoming water of La Herradura Bay, whilst on the beach spoil yourself with a delectable dish from one of the beach restaurants.

Owner's Response: I agree a car is a good idea especially if you want to explore the area. Taxis are also available, that you can call and who will come to the house.

Perfect holiday

  • 5 out of 5
The moment we pulled up to the villa we were over the moon. The beautiful view, the design of the pool and outside dining and sun areas were so appealing. The outside was tastfully decorated with a wealth of beautiful flowers and shrubs, some we found you could eat in the form of herbs and lemons. The inside a home from home, with antique funiture, cosy seats and an open fire. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need this attension to detail followed throught to the deautiful bedrooms and bathrooms. All so beautifully decorated. The first meal was a bar-B-Q, sitting outside over looking the horse shoe bay watching the sunset..perfect.
This was our 20th wedding celebration and we had six friend joining us for a week, we had such good fun, in the pool and dining under the stars. The local sites and walks were wonderful, the caves a Nerja were spectacular as were the local breaches and towns. Food shopping was extensive from the local super market with a wealth of seafood and fresh produce to suit even the fussiest eater. Going back again for longer this time and would highly recommend the villa.
