It would be perfect for 2 families, as it has 2 doubles and 2 twin rooms. The layout is well through out with the rooms being placed around the house so not to be on top of each other. The pool was wonderful and reached 30 degrees only dipping to 27 over night. The kitchen was well equipped with lots of basics already there for use. It would be lovely if sir conditioning could be extended to bedrooms but if you follow the instructions its bearable. You need to engage the fly swatter when eating outside - but that's not the houses fault! The breeze allowed the heat to be bearable - the weather was amazing and the views incredible. There is a small industrial unit nearby but just occasional noise form metal being moved - nothing intrusive or off putting. We weren't overlooked and the garden has complete privacy and car shelters that keep the sun off the cars. The pool guy is lovely and you can use google translate with him - a few lovely touches and surprises when we got there. Not many mosquito's which was a bonus. Seems in easy reach of a lot of places - however we chose to chill at the house and make use of the BBQ as much as possible! The brother in law went walking thorough the hills and nearby villages most mornings whilst he was there which he seemed to enjoy, meeting dog owners and rabbit shooters! We loved it - fantastic value and easy to find via the instructions given how remote it was! If you go - hope you enjoy it as much as we did! :-)

We really enjoyed sundowners on the sunroof watching the beautiful sunsets. Large swimming is a definite asset and it and surrounding area are kept very clean. The facilities at Desert Springs were excellent and there was easy access to some lovely beaches. Hopefully we will be able to stay again.

Brilliant weather with breathtaking views of the almanzora valley the roof terrace at night is amazing if like my children you like to see the moon and stars absolutely priceless! The kitchen has everything you need throughout your stay and having a washing machine to use when needed was an added bonus. The pictures of the pool do not do it justice as we was taken aback as to how big it really was,and believe me it was so lovely to be able to relax around your own private pool with your family no rushing out at 5 in the morning to reserve your sun lounger!! My mum used to live in Zurgena and now lives in Albox and this was a big part of our choice when renting as we didn't want to be to far away it's a great location to visit we walked to local bars and restaurants while we were here as well as venturing into town and enjoying tapas at Latinos! We drove to Albox on many accasions and stocked up at mercadonas supermarket. We visited many markets and beaches and my husband even managed some sea fishing in Garrucha. Friendly neighbors that make you feel welcome we met Pete and Jill who where also on hand with any assistance we needed throughout our stay we also met Graeme and Michelle and Margaret and Brian. Overall I would say we had an amazing holiday the children absolutely loved it and if you want to relax around the pool all day you can, my daughter was over the moon that it had that so important wifi as she brought her iPad with her.my son enjoyed the pool immensely I was just happy to relax and lap up the sun as we never get a decent summer in the uk! I will definitely be returning to casa marangie for our holiday next year such a great price for a fabulous villa set in outstanding sourounding I will be recommending this villa to family and friends!
