It is spacious, well-appointed, spotless and very comfortable, and of course the terrace and the view are superb. We had lunch outside every day and sunbathed every afternoon. We were lucky with the weather as there was brilliant sunshine for almost all of our two January weeks. Having a keysafe is great, as there are no hassles with checking in or leaving. And the host is responsive to texts and emails. We had stayed near here the previous winter, so the steep hills and steps of La Herradura held no surprises. (At 80, I am a little slower walking uphill than I was last year, but I managed just fine and we walked down for coffee and shopping every morning.) The only downside, for us, was that we had just spent two weeks in a centrally heated apartment in Almunecar and coming here to just one small radiator for a large apartment was a bit of a shock, as the January evenings and early mornings are chilly. We had to buy hot water bottles from the farmacia as the bedroom was so cold. Other than that, though, everything was great.

The accommodation, in terms of configuration, comfort and equipment met and exceeded all our needs and expectations. The location is perfect, a relatively short walk to the town and the beach where we spent lazy days snorkelling around the rocks and just lying, soaking up the warm sunshine. Yes, it is an uphill return journey but even I, the grandfather of the party, didn't find it a challenge. And the icing on the cake was the incredible sunsets. Whether viewed from the property itself or while enjoying a drink in one of the many cafes and bars they never ceased to amaze and we had a competition to see who could capture the best photo on our smart phones and cameras. For a half term break, we simply couldn't have chosen better.
