Had a very relaxing holiday in this beautiful villa. The villa is well appointed and the main bedroom has a large walk- in shower and the main bathroom has a shower and a bath (showers not mentioned in property info). The weather was very hot during our stay but the house remained cool. The outside areas were great; there is a large terrace overlooking the garden with views to surrounding hills and this was perfect for eating outside (there is also a large table in the kitchen if the weather is too cold to sit outside), the lower outside area has relaxing hammocks and a bbq area as well as swings/slide for younger children and a pool with safety fencing around it. The outside areas are shared with the owners Sara and David and their children - they were outside with us occasionally but the majority of the time we had the place to ourselves. Sara and David were very welcoming and gave us fresh vegetables and eggs from their garden which was fantastic! They also have a beautiful, very friendly cat who was happy to come and visit us inside the villa. They do have 2 dogs who seemed very friendly but were kept mostly in their fenced compound beside the pool. They did bark at other dogs and if we were throwing balls in the pool but that was fine. We had 2 teenage girls with us who loved the pool and the TV (they also have a playstation in the villa with lots of games). The town of Artajona is very pretty and has a butchers, fish mongers/green grocers and several small supermarket type shops to buy bread and everyday provisions. It also has an amazing fort on the top with spectacular views. The large supermarket is about 10 miles drive away. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it for families with and without children.
We were fortunate to spend five fantastic days here in La Casa Nava, in Olite. Not sure where to start to be honest, there is just so much going on here. Patxi is a wonderful host and had the house and gardens immaculate for our arrival. We were a party of nine (family including kids) and were delighted on arrival that everything was just as the pictures on line depicted. Clean and tidy would be an understatement.
The house was well equipped inside and out and we spent the days lazing around the pool and dining outside in all of the numerous areas...we especially liked barbequeing and eating around the long stone table 'al fresco'!
Patxi made sure the pool was clean and tidy and if the kids weren't jumping in and out they were happily indoors watching TV, playing games (pool and darts) or having a game of MUS!
Far too much going on without me turning this review into a BLOG...but please, if you are in this part of Spain/Navarra get in touch with Patxi and enjoy this simply wonderful location...10 out of 10 in all areas, I really cannot recommend this location enough!
We will return again very very soon!
