Fantastic view of Zahara and the mountains - we were blown away. Perfectly located for day trips in surrounding white villages and the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the pool, the scenery and Spain's culinary delights. We had a brilliant holiday. I highly recommend.

Optional darkness by closing the window shutters and putting the fans on helps immensely, the back yard a real sun trap and spa is welcome relief from the heat. 44o when we were there. Welcome gifts are a nice touch, thank you. Could benefit from a bigger tv as when the ceiling fan was on full we had to turn the volume up to max, if you don't want to eat out every night be prepared to go shopping regularly as the standard fridge holds only a little in the ice compartment, the house really needs a fridge/freezer. Also don't sleep with the windows open as the dozens of dogs kept in disgraceful conditions at the end of the road (not Brenda's dogs obviously) have a tendency to burst into communal barking sessions at any given opportunity. The way these dogs are kept really upset me so be prepared if you have any compassion. Anyway, the square offers a lovely place to chill out, highly recommended the restaurant in the middle. Go to Ronda for shopping and Zahara for amazing views. I would definitely go again if the townsfolk looked after their animals with a shred of decency and even if one person did enough to get them moved we could have had the windows open at night. Thank you Brenda for letting us stay in your lovely house.
