Both Nick and Pauline's warm welcome and care ensured that we made the very best of our time there. The house was very comfortable and the views outstanding. A great place to stay.

All creature comforts had been organised with heating turned on prior to our arrival and even milk and biscuits purchased to help us settle in the first day. Nina the owner was very helpful co-ordinating our journey on the phone to the villa (which can be tricky if arriving in the middle of the night with young kids) but together with Monsa's help (who met us at the premises) we managed to get there safely. So thank you both for your time. Our kids loved the time at the Villa, although it was too cold to use the pool they still enjoyed pulling fresh oranges from the trees and eating them straight away! We thoroughly recommend this villa and will be booking again when visiting Spain.

We were there in late Autumn, and had cosy open fires most nights, with the thanks to Gym we had a good supply of firewood and the surrounding hills provided a good supply of pine cones to help get the fire started.
