Great views and well presented

4 of 5
Loved the area for good quality walking. Trains make access to Malaga and other resorts easy. Apartment lived up to the reviews and did not fail to deliver. The welcome hamper provided is the best we have ever had and took some pressure off that first night. Lovely hosts who meet and greet and. Show you around.

We stayed here for a work retreat and it was excellent. The owner is very nice and the house was spotless and very comfortable. The location is perfect for a peaceful stay.
