The villa itself has great amenities for large families. The outdoor covered area is a really relaxing area to dine and chill in, and the pool had continual all day use. It's sunny, private and surrounded by lovely tress and plants. The villa was very comfortable & clean, the pool was eventually after we requested the pump be switched on. A coat of paint would make the surrounding wall in the garden look a lot more attractive, but this didn't spoil our lovely break. A very relaxing retreat for all. Dolo was very accommodating and made herself available to answer all our needs when required. The village is a short walk away, with a lovely little market selling everything you need and lovely fresh produce. The restaurants were all very Spanish which we loved. We tried 3 of the 5 in the village. The children were welcomed in each of them.

Roof terrace proved to be either too hot or too cool in October and could probably benefit from more shade, but I'm sure it would be very pleasant on a summer's evening. Property very clean and well maintained with lots of kitchen equipment. We didn't find bikes, which were listed, but this wasn't a problem as San Jose is quite hilly. Everything else was as described and the owners were in contact beforehand ensuring our arrival was problem free. Location good - minutes walk from the centre of town. San Jose is a pleasant little town although pretty quiet at this time of the year - but it did get busier towards the week end. I would recommend the Italian restaurant on the main street. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed swimming at the wild beaches around the area. The surrounding scenery is quite stark and desert like, but I suppose that is a result of always being hot and sunny.

My partner and I, and our children, love our holidays here. The house is beautifully styled (loved the ceramics) and the addition of the roof terrace, with a fab outdoor cooking area, was a joy! We enjoyed family meal times up there as well as evenings watching the sun go down. Stunning views of the mountains, the sea and the lovely village rooftops. Even in mid October the weather was really good - we were on the beach most days and enjoyed lazy lunches in two of the restaurants - the black rice and clams at Bar Agua Amarga 3 are two dishes which really stood out! Thanks for another great stay - fingers crossed we'll be returning next year!
