An extensive welcome pack on arrival was very welcome. This is a beautiful, very clean, warm holiday home with a fantastic roof terrace. Many long hikes possible from the door.

The accommodation is beautiful & well kept, with great facilities, but the location is really what makes it. The views over the mountains are fantastic & keep changing as the light changes. The sunsets made me want to take up painting!! It was magical watching the sun set over the mountains while listening to the bells from a herd of goats in the field nearby. Canillas de Aceituno is a lovely Moorish village about 5 minutes away by car and there are restaurants and bars there. The coast is only about 40 minutes drive away. Loved the Sunday market in Nerja! I really hope to go back and explore the area some more. Or maybe just relax by the pool...

It does not feel like a holiday rental, it feels like a well loved beautiful home. It was spotless! I have never felt so at home instantly in a Villa in all the 10 years we have been renting Villas. It is so spacious and every facility is provided including heated pool with a great slide, lovely Jacuzzi, Table Tennis, Swing-Ball, etc etc. There is a very informative folder which is full of lots of great information about all the local areas/restaurants/attractions. It was very helpful. Ray was great, always at the end of the phone if needed but never intrusive. I cannot fault this Villa at all and I would highly recommend it! If you are thinking of booking, don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed!
