Gorgeous property

5 of 5
What a lovely time we had. Exploring the mountain villages, walking. Watching the wildlife with the bats and a resident eagle an ever present visitor. Thank you Oliver for making us welcome with supplies on our arrival which made us very much at home. The property is well laid out and very good for lazy relaxing in the pool. We picked oranges and lemons on the trees and had squeezed oranges and lemons every day which was a real treat. Granada is only 50 kms away and an easy day trip. A very much enjoyed holiday and a good introduction to the Sierra Nevada

PARADISE- DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE

5 of 5
There are some many good things to say about this villa that it is hard to know where to start. We received a warm welcome from Jose & Angelina(owners parents). It was as though we were coming home & not just staying at a holiday villa. They showed us the house with such love for the property that we feel in love with it ourselves. The kitchen was the best equipped we have ever stayed at. It was a lovely touch to have bread , milk , a large supply of oranges(we had fresh orange juice every morning) & lemons (for the obligatory Gin & Tonic), a supply of there own olive oil & most importantly a supply of the most delicious organic wine with the most tranquil of gardens to enjoy it in. We were quite content to relax in the garden of evening. We had to force ourselves to venture further.The pool is just perfect to cool down in on a hot day. Thank you for a memorable stay. Thank you Angelina for your parting gift (their own oregano), I will try to do it justice in my next spag bol.! Des, Lily & Matthew Kavanagh
