An amazing beautiful villa, stunning views and close to some fabulous walking.

5 of 5
We were a party of 12 adults, there was enough room in the villa to accommodate us all comfortably. There was the lovely swimming pool, a local town with buses to Granada every hour and a gorge nearby for those who liked walking. All in all a fabulous holiday was had by all.

What a find!! Peter met us and took us to the property. We were wowed from the moment we arrived!! Position is great, quiet location but easy access to the village. We ate in La Almazara and Pizza restaurant in the central square twice, both very good and very cheap compared to uk. Facilities at 'The hole in the wall' are the best we have had in over 7 years in various places through central Europe!! Plenty of shaded areas throughout the day/eve. Patio is divine listening to a great selection of music slurping a drink or two. The pool was lovely, infact there was nothing more we could have asked for at this gem. We travelled in all directions during our week, and the beauty of the area with mountains all around us was better than ever we could have imagined. We are already planning a return visit so we can go up to Granada. Advance planning is needed to get tickets booked for the Alhambra Palace to avoid not being able to get in. A big thankyou to Peter and Carolyn for letting us use there lovely property, lemons were lovely by the way. Judy and Bob
