Beautiful villa beautiful area so peaceful and relaxing

5 of 5
The villa itself is beautiful and has all the home comforts you need for a comfortable stay. The outside space is fantastic the pool is lovely and my children loved spending many happy hours playing in it. The views from the villa are breathtaking and every direction had a different but equally stunning view. It was peaceful with only the goat bells tinkering in the distance. The area itself is lovely and the village close to the villa was pretty, the locals were friendly and had all the amenities that you would need. We enjoyed walking round and children loved playing in the play area and we enjoyed a fantastic meal at one of the restaurants. We hired a car which was great to see the surrounding area, we visited Granada and the caves at Nerja which were both brilliant days out. There were also several beaches to try in easy reach by car. David was a lovely and friendly host nothing was too much trouble for him and he made us feel very welcome. We had a fabulous week at this beautiful villa and look forward to coming back in the future.
