As part of our holiday in Spain we spent 3 weeks at this villa with friends getting to know the village and the district and sometimes just settling down with the excellent collection of books. I am sure we will return. The local management team are to be thanked for the prompt and friendly help they gave one of our friends with a puncture. No recommendation is complete without mention of the billionaire class views.
