Such a wonderful relaxing setting - can highly recommend. The villa is very clean and very well maintained. Equipped with everything you could need and great pool. Loved all the different outdoor seating areas the villa has. Near to Frigiliana, but out of the hustle and bustle. Really enjoyed the surrounding area- lots to do and see if you want to - or just stay at the villa and soak up the views. Will definitely be back!
