It is in a beautiful position with amazing views over the valley, slightly scary drive up to the villa, but you soon get used to it! Beautiful pool, we didn't use the little one but I'm sure it would be great if you had very small children. We loved Torre Del Mar, about a half hour drive. Lovely town with good restaurants and a nice beach. There is a fabulous cafe there called Don Pedros, lovely coffee and cakes and very reasonable prices. All in all a great holiday, very peaceful and in a beautiful place.

From first contact to departure Jill made everything so easy and straight forward. June and Steve were there to meet us and guide us to the property. They explained everything and gave us a guided tour of the house. Casa Louisa was a home from home and everything clearly marked and explained. The villa was so big it meant that we had so much space. There were 3 adults and 4 children, the children loved the swimming pool and table tennis... we had the best time and I would definitely recommend casa Louisa and we are looking forward to going back...
