The villa was very spacious and was very well stocked with everything we needed. We were impressed with the welcome pack as we'd had a very early start in the U.K. The pool was superb and the shaded areas were well used. The villa proved hard to locate as we'd had a delay in our flight, so maybe a map and a sign on the main road would have helped. The air conditioning was essential as even Spain was experiencing a heat wave! The annexe bedroom would benefit from the same air con as the others. In conclusion, we had a fabulous holiday. The views were stunning and we loved lazing around the pool all day and the sitting out and watching the bats in the warm evenings. Thank you.
