                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Mirroring the website description this property is very well kept with friendly and helpful caretakers and an owner who contacts you directly with final arrangements before you go. The villa is clean and spacious and the pool is the perfect size for a family with young children. Good facilities include a well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge with TV and wifi. Bathrooms are very clean and the whole property is well appointed. Situated on the road between Higuera and La Joya on the edge of La Torcal National Park, the views are spectacular and the location peaceful and relaxed. The nearby villlages and slightly larger town of Villanueva de la Concepcion offer a range of good quality bars and restaurants from family run, homely cooking to more formal dining. Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. For those who want to enjoy the national park and outdoor activities there is lots to do including walking and cycling. The villa is in a good position from which to visit Granada (for the Alhamabra), Ronda (go over the mountains via El Chorro for a spectacular view of the mountains and lakes), and even Cordoba is within 2 hours' easy drive. Antequerra is within 30 minutes drive and is very well worth a visit. If you want beaches then Malaga, Torremolinos etc are a little over 1 hour's drive away. I'd definitely recommend this property for families of all ages who want a relaxing sun blessed holiday with plenty of opportunities to explore this fascinating and beautiful part of Andalucia.

And we will be back once more later this year. We need the calm and the peace of this little paradise. The property is very clean and well-maintained. The animals are a joy to have arround us. I could recommend this property to friends but I want to keep this secret ;-) :-)
