Fantastic villa in a beautiful location.

5 of 5
Just back from a 2 week escape (stay) at this Villa.  It will be hard to forget the view we had with Sierra Nevada on one side and the Apajurras on the other.  The clear skies at night (as not in the town centre) gave us an amazing view of so many stars! This villa had everything we needed and more for our stay.  The Owners were very friendly and offered advice on places to visit when asked, but really they just left us alone to enjoy our family holiday.  The kids loved the pool and garden which allowed them to be loud enough to have fun but not be too loud that would have disturbed anyone.  JoJo the cat was also very popular with her frequent visits. The villa is a short walk/drive from Orgiva town which has a number of shops and restaurants.  The market in town is okay for a lazy wander around on a Thursday, however, the Friday market in Almuñécar, approx. 30 mins drive away, has more on offer.  Also, in Almuñécar is good water park if you have kids to entertain.  The Villa is about 25 mins from the seaside. All the family loved this place so much, I’m sure we’ll be back again sometime.

A Special Place

5 of 5
Sometimes it is hard to say why a place is so special. It is the ancient mountains, the blue of the sea, the breeze, the birds, the trees. It is this house, the way it sits on the hill, it's design and it is Mara, her love of beauty, of peace, of the East. An amazing week in a stunning situation, a beautiful Silver Anniversary and two very content teenagers. Thank you, Mara, we will never forget!
