Heather as others have commented was lovely, helpful and even offered to grab our essentials from the village of we wished. Yes she has dogs but they were just as nice as her, and with the exception of the odd excited bark, silent. The villa was clean, tidy and very cool at night. The village has everything we needed with some lovely restaurants. We are planning to come back with the rest of the family next year, plus a little one on the way, and can't wait!

The property listing was spot on and the place is very well equipped. Booking was very easy through home and away, Alain quickly responded to any enquiries/ requests we had and Frank the neighbour was readily on hand if we needed anything whilst there. Really nice quiet place and thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay, the village itself is lovely and the people are so friendly, we had some lovely breakfasts at el rancho grande. There are so many places to eat in the villages around we were spoiled for choice. Having experienced Spanish access tracks before, this one wasn't bad just needed a bit of concentration in some parts and we went out most days and nights. Would we use it again? Definitely.

The villa is very comfortable and clean with massive beds you sink into, every comfort is thought of and provided. Terraces for sunbathing, long lunches, late drinks, walks into the town for coffee at the Angel Bar are a must, and evening meals where your spanish is really tested - what could be better.
