Although the property is very spacious, suiting 8 comfortably, it is still very cosy and homely.
The house was immaculate on arrival, and our babies cot bed and blanket was ready as promised. A very thoughtful touch after a long journey were some beers, wine and water laid out for guests. Not that you're far from civilisation! Just far enough away from the crowds to enjoy a very peaceful stay and relax.
With a choice of terraces for eating on we would alternate throughout the day, using the BBQ terrace for evening meals. Lovely to have the choice! The villa is equipped with all mod cons really making it easy and a home away from home.
We loved Istan, the white walled village at the top of the mountain. Had some great authentic meals there at reasonable prices! Also recommend Marbella old town for an afternoon wander or for an excellent dinner.
Eating in is a great option too. We used the Mercadona supermarket at the bottom of the mountain which was very reasonable.
We loved it so much we were talking of going again this summer but alas it is all booked up, which is how it should be. It's a gem of a place! Thank you Gordon and Carolyn!
