It is furnished to a high standard, with a well equipped kitchen for all your needs. The five bedrooms are of a very good size, as were the en suites. Plenty of areas around the villa to sunbath or just to sit and relax. The pool, slide, jacuzzi, table tennis and swing ball gave lots of entertainment for everyone. The Stunning panoramic views are to die for, waking up to them every morning to these is like a dream come true. On a overcast day, you can just jump in the car, drive 30 minutes or more and be in sunshine again, with more beautiful views and tranquillity. We had a few keen road cyclists in our group, they found the climbs and descends brilliant, easy to plan routes, and the hiring of the bikes straight forward. So if your a cyclist, it's the place and area to come. There are many lovely typically Spanish restaurants with good food to choose from around the area. Dennis was so helpful and friendly, defiantly an asset to the villa, and Karen's communication was excellent. We would recommend a stay in this villa, and are sure you will agree with our review 100% Ball family, Somerset, April 2017

Although it was very early in the year, we had on 12 from 14 days likely temperatures over 20° and less rain. Really not necessary to use the pool of course but we tried it sometimes, and after 2 sun days it was much warmer than the Sea. The view from the terraces is very beautiful, most from the upper one. You can see on the white small town, the mountains and when weather is clear look to the Mediterranean Sea.
