The views are stunning and we often caught a glimpse of Morocco in the foreground of beautiful sunsets. The house is beautiful and built by themselves which made it extra special. We got well acquainted with the neighbours dog who was so friendly and will miss her too! The property is remote, but we manage just fine even without a car, and got very fit walking to Competa or down to the beach! We can't recommend this enough, having walked away with lovely sun tans in the midst of February. Will miss picking orange and lemons to make our home made lemonade and sangria! So sad to leave the cabin, but we'll be back soon!

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.
