Jose met us there and showed us everything we needed to know. We were allowed to pick onions, courgettes and limes fresh from the garden. We felt very safe and the villa with the air conditioning was lovely. We went to Ronda one day which was about an hour away. The views were spectacular and we came back through the mountains which was very scenic but not for the faint hearted. We also visited Mijas which was 15 mins away and beautiful, with lovely white houses and a lovely restaurant called the secret garden which was well worth a visit. We loved having the chickens wandering around the garden and our granddaughter particularly loved the cockerel. All in all a lovely villa in a lovely town with all that you need for a chilling holiday. Many thanks

You can never be entirely sure of any villa booking but this one really did exceed our expectations! It is in a quiet part of Andalucia with great views of the mountains and the pool was just perfect when we visited. The villa has a considerable amount of land surrounding it filled with olive & fruit trees which adds to the privacy. The villa had everything we needed and all the rooms were clean and well maintained. There were even good books to read and games to play. Our grandson toddled around very happily exploring all the gardens and visiting horses nearby. The nearest shop is a drive away so we stocked up as usual. There are very good restaurants in town and we particularly enjoyed El Fogon (steaks excellent), Casa Paco (recommend fish) and La Boma too. It's a nice drive to the coast - we went to Estepona - but really it is simply perfect unwinding at the villa and then a good evening meal out. For all of us, it was a little oasis. The owner was on hand throughout- before and during our stay - & helpful in very way . We have no hesitation in recommending this villa and in fact we hope to return. Just altogether lovely!
