Excellent

5 of 5
We had the most wonderful holiday in Casa Malaga. It was spotlessly clean with everything you need to make it perfect. The hammocks were a lovely touch, and swinging on them in the evening with a cold beer and looking over the marvellous view was a highlight. Thank you for letting us share your home with us. We will certainly be returning again next year.

Fab villa.

5 of 5
Fabulous villa, lots of outdoor space and wonderful views. Hospitality from the owners was first class, nice welcome pack of brownies etc plus all basics there and very much a help yourself attitude. Location is out of the way but well worth it. We had a fabulous week.
