The house is contemporary, spotlessly clean, with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. The roof terrace is the perfect place for a spot of sunbathing, while the very private pool offers a welcome chance to cool off. We loved sitting on the dining terrace with a glass or two of wine watching the sun set over the mountains. Absolute heaven. Canillas de Aceituno has a great choice of bars and restaurants and a host of friendly people. Suzanne made the whole booking process very easy and the information she provided was invaluable. We'd highly recommend it.

It was super relaxing in a spiritual way. There are also Easter eggs hidden all over the house, like interesting sculptures and decor!!! Would love to come back very soon. Thanks to the Landlords they are so lovely!

My wife and I love this part of Spain, and this Villa is situated in probably the perfect spot. It is off the beaten track without being too remote (on a made up road), up in the hills overlooking the beautiful Lake Vinuela with the mountains opposite.. The goat herd will pass the front of the Villa later on in the evening, a sure sign you are away from it all. The villa has a good size double bedroom with ensuite shower room, and there is also a pleasant twin room and family bathroom. The kitchen is open plan to a large living dining room. All very well equipped and with essential a/c. There is a good size pool with sun terrace and plenty of sunbeds, and table and chairs to eat al fresco. The local area is full of pretty white washed typically Spanish villages, with ample bars and restaurants, and some real gems hidden away. 30 mins and you are on the superb beach at Torre del Mar and 15 mins away from supermarkets, although there are a couple of smaller shops locally. You will need a car to get around but a little exploring of this wonderful quiet part of Spain is well worthwhile. We like to always try different places otherwise we would most certainly return for more. Miss it loads.
