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!

An extensive welcome pack on arrival was very welcome. This is a beautiful, very clean, warm holiday home with a fantastic roof terrace. Many long hikes possible from the door.

                                                                                                  Spent 2 wonderful weeks here in August this year and we have just booked to return next summer! Casa La Higuera has everything you could need for a truly relaxing holiday. Situated just a couple of minutes walk down from the Competa to Canillas de Albaida road the villa really can boast fabulous panoramic views stretching from the village of Canillas with the mountains behind all the way round and down to the coast in the south. It is so peaceful ...... in the morning you can watch the sun gradually creep up and across the valley and in the evening the setting sun is a perfect backdrop for a chilled glass of wine or two! The house itself is spotlessly clean and very well equipped but it is the outdoor space which is particularly special for living, dining and relaxing. The comfy sunloungers are ideal both for sun worshippers and those seeking a bit of shade and the pool is perfect for cooling off. A gentle stroll takes you to Canillas where the local shops will meet many of your needs. The two bar/restaurants at the top of the village, El Rincon de Mateo and Las Esperillas, are very easily reached and well worth a visit. Competa is larger and has more variety for both shopping and eating out. 5 minutes by car or about 25 minutes leisurely stroll it is certainly worth visiting and exploring. The main square, Plaza Almijara, is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Everything about the stay at Casa La Higuera was a lovely, positive experience and so it is a very big thank you to Alison and her team in Spain. Really looking forward to returning in 2017! Moira.
