Fantastic Xmas 2017 stay

5 of 5
We have stayed at this splendid villa before but never at Christmas and New year. It was great and we were pleasantly surprised and how many sunny days we had. Nighttime can be cool but there is a wonderful Spanish style open fire which is really cosy - and heats the whole villa if needed. The sheer size of the villa and the grounds is impressive. Its always possible to find a quiet moment somewhere either in the villa or garden. The rooms are large and spacious and even with a full house it never feels cramped. The main road finishes in the village of Alcaucin so no car noise and the villa is beautifully quiet - especially at night. Its easy driving here with very little traffic. Being next to the national park the air quality is exceptional which is very appealing as we love a healthy lifestyle. There is a great circular walk that brings you back to the villa in about 45 mins - the views and air are great. The walk will certainly get your heart pumping. The villa has a great internet connection and a huge flat screen TV. At night standing on the balcony or patio with the lights off the night time vista of stars on a clear night is awesome. If you are looking for night life, loud music and the bright lights the villa may not be your best choice. This is very much the real Andalusian Spain and within very easy reach of Malaga airport. A hire car is a must.
