This property lived up to those expectations in every way. There was excellent communication with the owners and with the lady who was on hand to meet and greet us on arrival and show us around the house. She was also well informed about the town and local area. The house was very cosy and comfortable with a very well thought out sunroom/roof terrace. We have lived in a bungalow for 30 years so we're not used to the 39 steps from the ground floor kitchen dinner to the roof terrace however we got used to them after a couple of days and did not find them a problem although those with mobility issues might struggle. Overall it was a very pleasant stay and I would be happy to stay there again. The house is well positioned in this small town and the slightly larger town of Competa is just a 35 minute walk away. You could do the walk in about 25 minutes but we kept stopping to take in the view. Whilst on the subject of views, the one from the roof terrace is fabulous.

In November the conservatory is great for the cooler evenings. The mountain views are breath-taking! The village of Canillas Albaida is delightful with a lovely square to sit in and enjoy the sunshine. The nearby villages of Archez and Competa are fantastic, picturesque and provide a wealth of wonderful eating places. The owners are very friendly and helpful in recommending local activities and attractions. The property is very well kept. It is an easy house to live in and a great base for exploring this fantastic area!
