Quiet peaceful villa with level disabled access

5 of 5
The house offers great disabled access, which allowed us to relax knowing that our daughter could move around the house with ease in her Power wheelchair. Fantastic views from the terraces and pool. Although a fairly remote location, this did mean it was quiet and peaceful. The manager was easy to get hold of and was always on hand to help out. We were met on arrival and shown around the house and given information about the local area and things to see. I would recommend Hilltop Hideaway to anyone wanting a quiet holiday in the mountains/hills. If you need level disabled access that this house will definitely meet your needs.

Relaxation oasis

5 of 5
Amazing is the best word to describe this house. Having our wedding there it was magic, almost fairytale like. I can say it was one of the best holidays ever for all our family and our friends. Perfect place to just relax and forget about crowded and noisy cities, surrounded only by olive trees and wild birds. Plenty of beautiful little towns and cities to visit just 1h-1h1/2 away(car it's a must). A few little village restaurants in the area with amazing food and surprisingly cheap (recommend El Charcon). Many thanks to Bruno and Stefan, much appreciated all their efforts to make our stay such enjoyable. A+ for the overall experience.
