Owners have thought of everything, welcome pack of food and drinks and the honesty bar/ ice creams were much appreciated and so helpful. The fire pit with a constant supply of wood and cosy blankets were all great for stargazing in the evenings. Cannot fault the accommodation, it was fantastic. A great place if you want a quiet, relaxing stay in the sunshine.

Weather was still good around 30s, the view from the villa is fantastic, it is a panoramic view of the Andalusian hills, it is very quiet, has a great pool. The villa inside is quirky with old features. There is a useful freezer (a fridge isn't usually enough in the Spanish heat). Good coffee pot and basic cooking ingredients were there. Outside there s a great BBQ and pizza oven. You can walk to the top of the hill for a fantastic view of Iznajar lake. Juani is very helpful and accommodating. There are local supermarkets in Archidona and Rute (mercadona), these supply everything you need. All in all a very relaxing holiday overlooking the olive groves.
