Situated in the centre of a small pretty traditional Spanish village with welcoming restaurants and bars. A number of local shops, and local market once a week, that provided for all our needs. Very good road links to Malaga and surrounding areas. Located very close to the famous walks and lakes in the area. Car recommended. Meet and greeted by helpful lady.

Brilliant communication and instructions from Mike from the outset. Clear instructions on how to find the house. Everything in the house to make our stay extremely comfortable and we all loved the accommodation. We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the area.
