The interior was really nice and luxurious especially the kitchen and bathrooms. It was lovely and clean, well equipped and modern. The exterior really was the highlight. The glorious pool, the large, hardly overlooked, plot and the amazingly practical enclosed, fly-free terrace made meal times and evenings a joy. A gas barbecue was a really useful added bonus. Location is truly isolated but the town of Huercal-Overa with all its amenities and supermarkets is only a ten minute drive away. We found Consum in the middle of town good and Lidl on the way in ok as a top up. Mercadona on the high street seemed a bit dated and similar in price to Consum. We heartily recommend this villa. Gerardo, the property manager, lives in the villa opposite and was extremely helpful, dealing with any queries we had very promptly. .

The owner Simon arranged our transport to and from the airport for us, on arrival he was there to greet us with wine and chocolates, he's a really bubbly friendly man, very helpful and knowledgeable of the area, the apartment is stylishly decorated with a real homely feel, every little detail seemed to be thought about, from robes and slippers to hair dryer, straighteners etc etc everything u could possibly need, oh and the views are outstanding from all three balconys, we are already looking to book with Simon again in the next few months time, we can't wait to go back,
