The facilities are excellent - my daughter was almost permanently in the pool, which is a good size and deep enough to dive into, much to her delight. We ate in almost every day, and the kitchen was very well equipped for all our needs. The local village is very Spanish - there was a lively festival going on for a few days - and has useful local shops. Everyone was very friendly and didn't mind our dire attempts at Spanish! Lidl is also a ten minute drive away if you need more provisions. We were based mostly at the villa, but went to Granada for the day and visited the Alhambra (book online at home first, for ease). It's just over an hour's drive away and stunning. Although, at 41 degrees on that day a little bit hot! A lovely property in a lovely area.

What lovely, friendly and helpful hosts. After a tour round the gorgeous property we were left to explore - finding a fridge containing food and a basket of fresh local fruit and veg left for us by Rosa. The accommodation is decorated beautifully in a Moroccan style with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The village of Moclin is typically Spanish with an amazing castle on the top of the hill as you enter. It is very quiet and peaceful with 3 bars where meals can be bought. Grenada is about 30minutes away and is well worth a visit. Rosa was the perfect host and the house is in the most amazing surroundings with beautiful views. We will definitely be returning to visit and I'll be recommending it to friends and family . Thank you Rosa and Antonio for a most fantastic holiday - you were so kind and helpful. Next time we will learn more Spanish so we can chat more!!
