The views were lovely and the villa offered fabulous accommodation and facilities. A lovely part of Spain with lots to do but also offering chilled and relaxing space if you want to do nothing but unwind and contemplate………perfect! Booking it again for next year!

Supermarkets and bars restaurants etc within a few minutes walk and the beach is 10 mins away in the car. Craig and Nicola were very helpful and provided plenty of information on the apartment and local area.
