Best 8 days on holiday ever

5 of 5
We love Monte Fava... Absolutely everything you could possibly have need of has been considered and thoughtfully provided for... The hospitality pack is extensive... Meaning you could if you wished skip food shopping on your first day. Blissfully sunny areas and much needed shady areas at any point in the day.... So you'll be comfortable whatever your mood. Karl and Daphne were so helpful and generous and we feel we have made new friends.....and were at the end of a mobile (provided free of charge) whenever we had need of advice or suggestions. The villa has a visitor's book and all echo how we found the villa. And let's not forget that Moncarapacho has some lovely restaurants... We are quite difficult to please on the restaurant front. The quality of the wine is exceptional. We get ripped off at home! Thank you

Absolutely stunning 😀

Spent a fabulous 9 nights in this beautiful apartment. Everything is exactly as pictured, and even better, and the booking process with Marta was really easy and she was very helpful throughout. The apartment was exceptionally well stocked with everything from glasses, cups, plates etc. to bin liners and cleaning products. The view from the roof terrace and in the jacuzzi was amazing. Everything was perfect, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this apartment to anyone 👍🏼
