Most mornings we were greeted with sparkling sunshine over the sea view. The house itself is very comfortable and the surroundings are plush and relaxing. The house is clean and very comfortable. I enjoy cooking and especially enjoyed the plentiful fresh vegetables from the local weekend market. It's a good location for exploring the rest of the island although you do need a car that copes with steep inclines. Marta is extremely helpful and gracious. She sent excellent directions and did some basic shopping for us since we were arriving late. Overall we had a wonderful stay and I highly recommend this property.

Weather wasn't brilliant for half of the week which is where the hot tub came in to it's own. Car is essential although there are 2 restaurants about 7 minutes walk away, albeit up hill, but easy going home. Good food at both and excellent wines at Casa Del Vino, which has a wine tasting room and option to buy the wines, and at reasonable prices, again views from both are stunning. A couple of miles away is Taccorante where you can go and get all your supplies and it even has a Lidl, again so cheap. We travelled to Puerto Del La Cruz which is only 20 mins away in the car and it is lovely, great atmosphere, plenty of shops and an old part to have a look around, thoroughly recommend a visit. Will visit again for definite. Thanks to Ana, the owner, nothing was too much trouble, we didn't have enough wine glasses so mentioned it to Ana and by that night we had a new set of 6. Perfect!
