The property itself was very clean and according to the pictures (in real it actually looks better then on the pictures :-)). The stay was just as we expected - a very quite Location on top of the hill with great views and the Sightseeing sites just near by. The "road" to the house is something you have to get used to, but in the end it worked out very well. Daniel is a very nice and caring owner! providing you with the best tips where to eat and where to go (also where not to go). We enjoyed our stay up in the hills and recommended it to friends.

                                                                                                      Ein Urlaub, der keine Wünsche offen lässt

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Diese Ferienanlage besteht aus einem Doppelhaus, in dem nebeneinander zwei Appartements untergebracht sind, so dass jeder Mieter eine Haushälfte zur Verfügung hat. Die Ausgänge führen zu einer gemeinsamen schmalen Terrasse, auf der jeweils ein Tisch und Stühle stehen. Das Appartement ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, es ist einfach alles da, von der Waschmaschine mit integriertem Trockner bis hin zu allen erdenklichen Küchengeräten, Grill, Mikrowelle usw. Es ist alles sehr sauber und gepflegt und sehr gut erhalten. Zu unserer großen Überraschung wurden wir mit Blumen, Portwein und Käse empfangen. Das Grundstück bietet noch andere nette Überraschungen. Man kann sich z. B. einem großen Pavillon zurück ziehen, in dem eine Musikanlage steht und ein gemütliches Sofa. Von dort hat man einen wunderschönen Blick ins Tal hinab. Von der Terrasse und der Dachterrasse aus hat man einen formidablen Blick auf das Meer. Es gibt einen gepflasterten Grillplatz mit Grill und Backofen, der in einem extra Hof untergebracht ist und der sehr gemütlich ist, sowie einen gemütlichen Liegebereich am Pool. Von unserem Vermieter Daniel wurden wir mit ausgesuchtert Herzlichkeit und Zuvorkommenheit begrüßt und betreut. Nach unserer Ankunft wurden wir zu einer kurzen Sightseeing- Tour eingeladen, auf der Strände, Restaurants, Supermärkte usw. erklärt wurden und man bereits einen Überblick über die näheren Angebote erhalten konnte. Die Anlage selbst liegt etwas höher, daher hat man diesen traumhaften Ausblick. Die Zugangswege sind etwas abschüssig und steil, mit unseren Wagen - Kia Rio oder Punto gut zu meistern. Der Wagen sollte jedoch nicht tiefer gelegt sein, damit man nicht aufsetzt. Man muss die Zufahrtswege jedoch nicht hoch fahren, sondern durch eine besondere Wegeanordnung fährt man von einer höher gelegenen Straße zur Anlage hinunter und von dort auf die niedriger gelegene Straße hinunter. Alles in allem ein wunderbare Anlage, in der man gut entspannen kann und die genügend Raum bietet. Dear Daniel and family, we will thank you very very much for your very kind hospitality. We enjouyed staying at your place very much and will never forget this precious time. Kindly regards Ramona

                                                                                                      5 of 5

A very clean and well proportioned villa with masses of outdoor space (pictures don't do it justice )for ball games as well as a fabulous pool area. The villa is in an excellent well maintained condition, rooms are a good size and shower /baths are very spacious. The lounge area was lovely to kick back in the evening (as it went a bit cool outside ). A great base for visiting all the fabulous sights and very close to town, plenty of good well stocked supermarkets nearby as well as places to eat out. Isabel and Pedro were amazing hosts and you could not ask for two nicer more helpful people. Lots of local knowledge (great places to park in town etc ) All in all 100% satisfaction from staying at this villa. !!
