My wife and I and our kids 9,6,3 were made to feel very welcome by Pepe. Very quiet and private (kids could splash around without worrying anyone). We had daytrips to Gibraltar,Marbella,Torremolinos and found that the villa was really handy for Malaga airport (25 minute easy drive). On our 3rd evening at the villa, we were so impressed that we booked the villa for 2018. Pepe welcomed us and showed us around and was very approachable throughout our stay. Plenty of supermarkets within 15 mins drive. A car is definitely required in our opinion. Great experience throughout, from booking to arrival and departure.
