The Villa was absolutely spotless; everything that you would ever need in the kitchen, the lounge area was cosy and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and I loved the furniture. The summer kitchen looked amazing, it had everything that you would need for outside living, but as we stayed in November we were unable to use this fantastic facility. But we did have breakfast outside with the lovely views of the surrounding hills. We did have a quick dip in the pool, which in summer months would be very welcomed. Teresa and Jose were fantastic host, nothing was too much trouble, they would answer any query that we had, giving us helpful advice on everything. We would defiantly recommend going to El Torcal and Cameninto Del Rey (which you must book online in advance) two spectacular trips, which were very reasonably priced. We took a trip to Malaga on the local bus, which was on time and made a change to let the driver speed you through to Malaga bus station. We had a good day visiting many attractions, we will definitely be returning for a longer visit. The only downside to our holiday was that it was too short!!!, we would have loved to stay much longer. One thing for sure, is that we will be returning. Thank you so much to Teresa and Jose, they have an amazing Villa, we would 100% recommend a holiday there.

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.
