perfect

5 of 5
we arrived at nearly midnight this was no problem at all. the villa was immaculate the whole place was very clean and ready for use. the views are amazing as your eating outside had everything we needed and was perfect. it has easy access to all local towns and a very easy drive to gibraltar also. the children loved the pool had lovely towels to use bbq area. it was spacious for 6 of us. only problem was we arrived easter sun no supermarkets open do if you go on national holiday be prepared. the back garden is huge and the children loved to play there is tree and a whole wide space around the back. the villa has everything cant think of anythi g that we didnt have there. we normally hard to please but honestly it was great. games in the villa table tennis. smart tv so you can watch english things. heating or air con. loved it would def recommended excellant price worth every penny. only thing i would say is you have to give two hundred fifty euros first day and get back on departure but we didnt get time to spend on them at airport do lost hundred in exchange rate to pounds. might be better if just made to pay for breakages on departure or cant credit card payments on hold or something not sure but felt i lost holiday money. otherwise it was amazing thank you xxx

A truly wonderful stay

5 of 5
A wonderful property and truly lovely hosts. We only spent a week but wish it was longer. The villa is well equipped and extremely large just for the two of us but it was only one of two available at such short notice but we were so glad that we picked it. Only walked into the town once as we went further afield most days but the town is quaint and we had a drink and Tapas in the square next to the church. Highly recommend going to Mijas if you like Flamenco as they have a free show on Wed & Sat at noon in the Plaza. Have had hols in The Costa Del Sol since 1987 and it has changed so much over the years but there are still some places worth a visit. Hope to come back to the villa soon and if you book and stay you will not be disappointed
