I think we were one of the first to stay in this property in October 2018, so everything was new.
Don’t go to this place if you want any sort of night life as the village closes at around 7pm and becomes very peaceful with just the sound of the sea!
A car is recommended
We visited Villa Margarita for 11 days in early September. It was about a 25-minute drive from the airport therefore use of a car is essential. Alejandra and Francisco met us in the village of Valles de Santa Innes when we arrived and they led us to the property. After a pleasant short drive along some very dusty roads we arrived at the villa.Anyone who is concerned about nosey neighbours need not worry as the villa is totally on its own with no overlooking properties nearby.
There is a smallholding at the rear of the villa where you will find some rescued animals which are cared for daily by Alejandra (Alejandro and Francisco’s mother.) This does not impact on the privacy of guests.There are a few cats & cute kittens who like to come and say hello which was lovely. We were treated to a large bowl of freshly laid eggs which were great. All of the family here are lovely people who can’t do enough to help. We had a couple of small issues which they sorted out almost straightaway. Alejandro and his partner Mapi, and family invited us to the beach house where they were staying and cooked us some fresh fish that Alejandro had just caught as well as some amazing ‘award winning’ breaded goats cheese. They made us feel very welcome and we had a great afternoon with them. He even gave us some more fresh parrot fish and more cheese to take back to the villa. We grilled it on the barbeque at the villa the following night :)Google Translate is definitely a handy tool here.The living room is large and has a TV with a spare HDMI socket if you want to bring a Firestick or Chromecast. The kitchen is fairly small but suited our needs. The bedrooms are of a decent enough size with everything you would need. The beds are good but we would have preferred different pillows as they were memory foam and quite hot. The quality of furniture is great throughout the house and the large sofa in the living room is very comfortable.The pool is clean and a nice temperature. Alejandra came every morning to clear any leave and check on the chlorine.
WiFi was reliable and quick.Alejandro gave us a fan for the bedroom which made it nice and cool.Nearest small shop is around 5 minutes’ drive away, with a supermarket around 10 minutes’ drive. I would highly recommend Villa Margarita to anyone who wants an ‘away from it all’ experience, where you don’t need to drive too far to get to places.We will definitely be returning to visit this amazing place & fantastic people in the future
