Alcaucin is a small and picturesque hilltop village with a decent selection of bars and restaurants. Perfect for a wander in the evening for a bite to eat etc. The villa is set slightly down the hill from the village, meaning a bit of a steepish 10/15 min walk up to the village, but with the resultant benefit of a downhill return home in the evening. There is a small car park at the end of the village for those not wanting to walk. The villa itself and its setting are superb, a great vista from the patio of the surrounding hills and the valley. Olive who takes care of the villa was very friendly and welcoming, and is a mine of information regarding the village and local area. The accommodation is spacious and well finished. We were a party of 11 (6 adults & 5 children), and at no time felt like we were on top of each other.. The pool is large, and was a welcome relief when the temperature started soaring in the early afternoon. All bedrooms had A/C which was a blessing on a couple of very warm nights. There are plenty of poolside sun beds and tables and chairs dotted about the patio area. The shaded wooden veranda beside the pool was a lovely spot to laze and soak in the views. The outdoor BBQ worked well and is conveniently located close to the kitchen. All in all a marvellous location and a great holiday retreat. Many thanks to Catherine and Graeme for a friendly, very efficient rental booking. Would highly recommend.

The resort still has a very pleasing atmosphere both during the day and also at nightime, with plenty of restaurants of varying cuisine all within easy walking distance. The apartment was excellent, having everything you need for a great holiday, including a lovely pool area. The furnishings are of high quality with a really comfy bed, and there is a choice of air conditioning or ceiling fans. It also boasts a balcony with sea views across the bay, ideal for dining or just relaxing. We can't recommend this highly enough.
