We visited Gibraltar, Ardales and the lakes Cominito Del Rey we had a lovely lunch at El Mirador Restaurant. Nerja Cave,Benalmadena Butterfly Park and Castillo Monumento Colomares is great our little son loved it. Overall we had a fantastic week.It was so nice to back to the villa every evening after seeing all these beautiful places and relax with glass of Spanish wine. We would recommend to anyone!

Great location with lovely views from it's elevated position above the surrounding countryside. Very quiet area with large grounds but close enough to Coin for restaurants and supermarkets. Although it is walkable to Coin a car is essential. Probably the best equipped villa we have ever stayed in. Nothing has been missed out. Very clean and comfortable throughout. The outside area is great with several tables, plenty of seats and loungers and a huge BBQ. The pool is large and the fact it is heated is a real treat for a late October trip. Well located for trips into the mountains but the beach is still only 20-30mins away. We also did a day trip to Gibraltar. Trefor has been a fantastic host. Loads of useful information and any queries were answered very promptly. All in all a great villa in a stunning location with large grounds, a heated pool and a great host.
