Beautiful luxury villa with stunning views

5 of 5
This was a family holiday for myself, my husband, my 2 children (aged 4 and 2) and my mum. The villa was a stunning place to stay and the pool and the playground were both a huge hit with the children (and us!) - the kids had hours of fun in both. You definitely need a car, but the local towns are only a 5 minute drive away - we found Al Haurin El Grande a bit of a maze so welcomed the suggestions of restaurants all of which were superb - we were actually quite surprised by the high quality of the local restaurants - although I would definitely go with the recommendations in the book. We also had a few days near the coast which was about 1/2 hour away which was perfect for us. The villa itself provided everything - there was a lovely welcome pack when we got there, top of the range tv and music systems - in fact my 4 year old said her favourite day was the day that we didn't leave the villa and had a bbq for dinner! Louisa was exceptionally helpful and was there to great us when we arrived and reassuring to know that she was at the end of a phone if we needed her for anything when we were there and the Taylor family were very helpful in the run up to our trip. All in all was a very happy holiday and we would hope to return at some point in the future.

A little bit of heaven in lovely surroundings.

5 of 5
We spent a week at this lovely villa with our son, partner and grandson (16months) and we returned home relaxed & refreshed. You can never be entirely sure of any villa booking but this one really did exceed our expectations! It is in a quiet part of Andalucia with great views of the mountains and the pool was just perfect when we visited. The villa has a considerable amount of land surrounding it filled with olive & fruit trees which adds to the privacy. The villa had everything we needed and all the rooms were clean and well maintained. There were even good books to read and games to play. Our grandson toddled around very happily exploring all the gardens and visiting horses nearby. The nearest shop is a drive away so we stocked up as usual. There are very good restaurants in town and we particularly enjoyed El Fogon (steaks excellent), Casa Paco (recommend fish) and La Boma too. It's a nice drive to the coast - we went to Estepona - but really it is simply perfect unwinding at the villa and then a good evening meal out. For all of us, it was a little oasis. The owner was on hand throughout- before and during our stay - & helpful in very way . We have no hesitation in recommending this villa and in fact we hope to return. Just altogether lovely!
