Lovely pool, great neighbours - our children made friends with the Spanish children nearby. The local farmer was brilliant - let my children loose with his sheep and donkey.

Stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The pool and terrace is very private and has full sun all day, it is an idyllic place to while away some hours. It's only a 4 minute drive to Alora where there are an range of restaurants and plenty to look at. The town is a maze of narrow roads and hidden courtyards which can be a bit tricky to navigate through, but it all adds to the charm of this unspoilt area. Once you've been exploring and sightseeing you get to come back to the lovely villa and pool. While we were staying (in May/June) the villa stayed cool despite the heat outside and we didn't need the air conditioning. If you want to eat-in, the kitchen has every conceivable utensil and pan you could possibly need and numerous places inside and out to sit and eat. The only noise is from the occasional aeroplane and a flock of goats being herded up and down a nearby road morning and evening. The owners, Helen and Steve, were very friendly and helpful and provided everything we needed. Overall Casa Mimosa exceeded our expectations in every way and we look forward to going back soon.
