Boz and Polly who manage the property could not have been more helpful. Thank you both. We had the pleasure to meet with Carmen, one of the owners, who provided us with a lovely gift of wine produced by her family. The Villa was very comfortable and was equiped to a standard beyond which anyone could expect. The location of the Villa in the hills surrounding Frigiliana offers both tranquility and easy access to all the facilities you might want. I really could not fault this Villa/holiday in any way. In deed we booked 3 more weeks in 2018 before we left! Do yourselves a big favour and book this Villa, you will be so happy you did.
