The owners built it with love and you can really feel that. It’s well equipped and maintained, neat and very cozy. We stayed here for a week with family and friends (8 people from 13 to 71 years old) and we all had a great time. You can dive into to the lovely, large pool, have family meals outside and enjoy the amazing views. The road to the house is indeed a bit scary, but after going up and down a few times, you’re getting used to it. We even enjoyed our last drives! Don’t forget to visit the waterfalls in Otivar. That’s a wonderful experience. You’ll find the directions in the folder in the house Dear Harriet and Paul, thank you for sharing your amazing home with us.

Well, what can we say!!!! Firstly were impressed with the personal touch from owners Val and Chris, calling to introduce themselves, discuss the villa and being very contactable. Absolutely loved the villa, photos didn't do it justice. Hot tub was bliss, sitting there with my book, letting the kids rule the pool. (I say kids but I mean 3 boys aged 14,14,16 and girl 17). There was so much space, the bedrooms were a great size. The kitchen had every utensil you could possibly use. We spent a lot of our time on the terrace overlooking the pool and the view of the bay, which was amazing. The barbecue was great, had a couple of those, had a curry delivered which was delicious. We walked down to the village and beach but got taxi back, which was easy as they understood English. The hill is a little steep in places and in 40 degree's heat, not for me 😀򐀠but worth it for the view. We made sure we took shopping each time to justify the taxi fare. Kids enjoyed having the games facilities as it broke up the pool time, the garage had balls, floats and rings that they could use in the pool, which was great. Keighley, the manager was brilliant, met us upon arrival, gave guided tour and easily contactable, we needed to speak to her a couple of times (nothing major). By the next morning she was on the case and all sorted. She was also a great source of local information, far better than any holiday rep I've encountered. This is not a traditional tourist location, which adds to the experience in my book. The locals like when you try to use Spanish as there are many who only know a little English. The day starts later here, although we left the villa about 7.45pm each evening for a casual stroll to dinner, the locals don't seem to come out till 10pm, some restaurants provide tapas free of charge when you order drinks which were nice, the marina also has couple of restaurants and a little bay, very picturesque,worth a look, My only tip:if there're any specific things you like to do ie: waterpark or boat trip, research before you go as tourist office wasn't a great help, then you can see if they are do-able, especially if like us you don't hire a car. Overall we definitely recommend this villa and location 👍𣐽𣑍�
