The villa was very comfortable and had a well stocked larder. The owner Tina lives nearby and was on hand to answer any queries, if needed! This is a beautiful area of Spain and allows you to explore the mountains of the Sierra Nevada and the coast of the costa tropical. You do really need a car to stay in this villa as the town of Orgiva and local amenities are a short drive away. We would definitely stay there again. Sally

                                                                                                      House was nice and spacious and provided everything we needed for a lovely two week stay in a part of Spain that is (thankfully) far removed from the resorts further down the coast. Very well equiped and only criticism would be the bed was bit uncomfortable but other than that everything was good and as advertised. A car really is essential but it's an easy drive from Malaga and allows access to many lovely beaches in the area. It is a steep climb back from the local beach and with nothing around the house (other than the lovely pool) eating out in the evening means either driving or a cab. We, however, were happy with a bottle of wine on the large terrace. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
