Had a great couple of weeks, very relaxing. Away from it all but still close to Orgiva. Enjoyed a few meals out, our favourites were Baraka, La Almazara and Pizza 'N' Love, really nice and good value. Thank you Peter for all your recommendations. Had a great time exploring the mountain villages and Granada. Wish we could have stay longer.

The house was fantastic- very well equipped, spacious and with the most fantastic view from the roomy sun terrace. Air con was great and well used as we had a hot week! We all enjoyed our stay and made full use of the fantastic infinity pool with its amazing views. The sun terrace was the perfect place to relax in the evening with a large G&T (and Wifi for the kids), watching the swifts and the occasional Hoopoe. We did walk into town in the evening once but to be honest, we all preferred to chill on the sun terrace with the views and excellent BBQ/kitchen facilities. We would recommend a car- we used Malagacar.com, who were competitively priced. We pre-booked tickets for Alhambra and all really enjoyed our day out in Granada - the palace was amazing despite the searing heat! Our tip would be to use one of the 24 hour shopping centre carparks south of the city (just off the motorway) for a stress free experience and we then used the hop on/hop off Granada bus tour to see the city- there are so many lovely plazas, vistas, shops and restaurants there- would definitely recommend this excursion. The kids enjoyed a day out at the Alumnecar waterpark which is just down the road and not too busy. We planned to explore more (Nerja and Sierra Nevada villages) but will save this for next time! We arrived on a Sunday and no shops really open so we were grateful for some of the cupboard supplies to tide us over until we went to the local supermarket the following morning (new Lidl very good with underground parking). A memorable family holiday which we all enjoyed- we will be back!
