Lovely little villa in a great location

4 of 5
I spent a week here in July with my family, 4 adults and 1 child. Very easy to find from the airport and in a great location with a supermarket 5 minutes drive away and the cost at Torremalinos about 20 minutes or so away. The grounds are lovely with a fantastic pool area with great mountain views and a fruit orchard with more plum trees than you can count! The house itself was more than adequate although I did think the kitchen a bit on the small side, but it had everything that you could want. Beds where comfortable. I cant speak for the lounge area or the TV facilities because we didn't use it all week, choosing to spend all our time under the covered porch. All in all we really enjoyed our stay there. The only downside during our stay was that i think there was a wasps nest, maybe in the fruit orchard as there was a large number around all of the time and both my wife and grandson got stung. Also the little "yappy" dogs across the road, yapping all day and most of the night, although i do understand these are outside of the owners control. I do feel that if the porch was enclosed in a fine mesh, this would help reduce the wasps/flys, particularly at meal times. With the wasps gone and if someone would "neck" the dogs opposite, I would happily revisit this property again

Great stay in Cuevas Del Becerro

5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying in the Villa, lots of space, with everything we needed. The raised terrace was great to have breakfast on, especially in the full sun in the morning. We used the BBQ, bought the steaks from the local butcher, they were great. Great place to chill out, the village was great. It's true, no-one speaks English, but that's part of the charm of the village. I enjoyed trying out my Spanish, limited as it is, especially in Bar Pescaero, where we ate tapas on many occasion. I had many a conversation with the owner, and one of their customers whose sister lived in Edinburgh, and who insisted on practicing his English to me, whilst I practiced my Spanish on him! Their patatas bravas is the best I have every tasted. Loved the way the village closed the Main Street for the restaurants at the weekends, though when you arrive at 11pm at night it does make it interesting as to how you get to the villa! Places to visit:- We went to Seville for the day, don't take your car all the way into the city, we drove to the metro station at Olivar de Quintos, left the car there and took metro in. Ronda - just stunning and only 20 minutes away. That is a must. We also went to San Pedro beach at Marbella. Stunning scenery on drive. Finally a thank you to Linda for her communications, friendly and always helpful, and Chris for running through all the stuff in the villa and how it all worked. Great holiday!
