On both counts the property fulfilled all of our needs and then proceeded to over-deliver based on comfort, the village of Guejar Sierra, cleanliness and views from the apartment. We will return!

After the hustle and bustle of the city it was great to relax in the beautifully maintained gardens and the pool. As has been mentioned by others, Janet and her family are welcoming, friendly and not intrusive in the least, but they are there if you need them which we found reassuring. The house has real character and is well equipped plus the mid-week watering is something to behold. Would recommend highly.
