An impressive, peaceful, secluded property
My wife and I were looking for a secluded, comfortable property in a peaceful location. This Finca gave us what we were looking for. The accommodation is large with generously sized rooms, well furnished, lots of comfortable seating throughout and plenty of outside areas to explore and enjoy. It is as described.
The owners met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the property. Manuel’s daughter, Marta, spoke good English and was contactable by phone for any queries.
Because of the time of year and the elevation of the property, we often woke to find the property shrouded in damp, cold cloud. A short drive down the mountain would quickly see us in warm sunshine. When the cloud lifted, the views from the house were stunning. I imagine that the cooler temperatures at the house would be very welcoming in the hotter summer weather.
The living accommodation is impressive with quality furnishings. The kitchen is rustic but well-equipped. While there was no welcome pack of basics like bread and milk, the village mini-market was well stocked and fairly easy to find but not within walking distance.
We did not use the pool and found it necessary to light the large log fire to warm the living room in the evenings. We slept in the main bedroom and were able to control the temperature of the under-floor heating to suit our needs. The room was large, well-furnished and the bed was very comfortable. There was ample, clean bedding, linen and towels. The other bedrooms had heaters but did not have under-floor heating.
We could only find Spanish channels on the TV. There was a DVD player but it would be necessary to take or purchase DVD’s as none were provided.
There were no instructions for any of the appliances and while most were self-evident, we were unable to figure out the settings for the dryer (which I believe was a condensing dryer). Some written instructions for this would be helpful.
I would advise families with children to be aware that the three cats that live outside can sometimes get over anxious if they think you may be carrying food and can spring at your hands. After my wife being scrammed by one of the cats we found it safer to shoo them away with a towel. For us, the location of the villa was ideal as it provided easy choice of access for the North, South or center of the of the island.
I would certainly consider using this property again and would recommend it to family and friends.
