Amazing villa! Amazing holiday!

5 of 5
We had the most amazing time at this stunning villa! We were met with a warm welcome and a fantastic welcome pack (it was Sunday we arrived so majority of the shops were closed) the villa was beyond any pictures and was the perfect setting for our friends 40th birthday, the pool is huge really compared to other villas we have stayed in and the decor and lay out was lovely! We didn't hire a car but I would say this is probably wise to do so as you are a little drive from things, we got taxis and split between couples wasn't too bad, but does get costly if you are going out a lot although we tended to chill in the villa most days and then venture out more evenings. Paul was brilliant from start to finish with responding to me emails and really helpful with any queries we had. I would definiately recommend staying here and myself and all of my friends said we would most Definately return! It was the perfect setting for our friends birthday and we are so glad we decided on here to stay! Thankyou so much! Claire Gillooly

Lovely little villa in a great location

4 of 5
I spent a week here in July with my family, 4 adults and 1 child. Very easy to find from the airport and in a great location with a supermarket 5 minutes drive away and the cost at Torremalinos about 20 minutes or so away. The grounds are lovely with a fantastic pool area with great mountain views and a fruit orchard with more plum trees than you can count! The house itself was more than adequate although I did think the kitchen a bit on the small side, but it had everything that you could want. Beds where comfortable. I cant speak for the lounge area or the TV facilities because we didn't use it all week, choosing to spend all our time under the covered porch. All in all we really enjoyed our stay there. The only downside during our stay was that i think there was a wasps nest, maybe in the fruit orchard as there was a large number around all of the time and both my wife and grandson got stung. Also the little "yappy" dogs across the road, yapping all day and most of the night, although i do understand these are outside of the owners control. I do feel that if the porch was enclosed in a fine mesh, this would help reduce the wasps/flys, particularly at meal times. With the wasps gone and if someone would "neck" the dogs opposite, I would happily revisit this property again
