                                                                                                      Just returned from a week at this great villa, There were six adults and the villa allows plenty of room for everyone to have their own space if needed or to come together for long lazy meals.There is an abundant hot water supply, loads of towels and comfy beds. The pool area is well equiped and we only ventured into the gym area on one occasion (just too hot) The location is perfect if like us you want to get away from everything and have beautiful views. We ventured out to a couple of the local villages, and walked down into Archez about 3k but the whole point of this trip was just to relax and spend time with family. Communication throughout the whole process was excellent. We had initial problems getting up the very steep driveway (even in 1st gear) but eventually mastered the technique.Would certainly return if we needed a large villa in the future

It was very tastefully decorated, easily accessed and had every facility one could wish for in the apartment. It was also in close proximity to several very good restaurants, namely El Casino, El Bouquetilla. The swimming pool area was excellent and I enjoyed the jacuzzi. It is so easy to get to Nerja on the bus too. All in all a fantastic place to have a holiday even with it being on a busy road, you get used to the traffic and we would certainly return and recommend to others.
