Great holiday house for family with kids!

5 of 5
We have two children so wanted somewhere child-friendly with a pool. Girasol was perfect (the pool was gated and heated!) with lovely, well maintained gardens and lots of indoor and outdoor space. The kitchen is big enough to cook proper meals for four people and there is a small utility with a washing machine which was also extremely handy. We had ordered firewood prior to our arrival so were able to sit around a real log fire in the evenings after a day of swimming and reading - bliss!

Winter break at Casa Jazmin

5 of 5
We have a lovely relaxing and restorative break at Casa Jazmin. Both Nick and Pauline's warm welcome and care ensured that we made the very best of our time there. The house was very comfortable and the views outstanding. A great place to stay.

Well equipt Villa with Amazing mountain views!

5 of 5
Following delays at the airport we arrived almost 6 hours later than scheduled but were grateful the accommodation exceeded our expectations. All creature comforts had been organised with heating turned on prior to our arrival and even milk and biscuits purchased to help us settle in the first day. Nina the owner was very helpful co-ordinating our journey on the phone to the villa (which can be tricky if arriving in the middle of the night with young kids) but together with Monsa's help (who met us at the premises) we managed to get there safely. So thank you both for your time. Our kids loved the time at the Villa, although it was too cold to use the pool they still enjoyed pulling fresh oranges from the trees and eating them straight away! We thoroughly recommend this villa and will be booking again when visiting Spain.
