It was quiet and well equiped. It is a good location to make a trip to places like: Granada, Acala la Real, Ubeda and Baeza. We also made a trip to the Sierra Nevada for walking. Helen Watson is a friendly hostess who you can ask anything. .

The villa comfortably accommodated 7 of us, and we were regularly blown away by the beauty of the villa and the views overlooking the Andalucian hills. The photos on the listing only capture a fraction of this. The villa is well equipped with everything you could possibly need and is perfect for a fun and relaxing holiday. Particular highlights included the pool, 4 terraces, the sunken bath with hillside view, Remi's Paella night, (and the Neals Yard cosmetics in every room!), to name a few. The Alhambra in Granada is also easily reached by car. Jeff & Tish are very welcoming & helpful hosts and we will be recommending the villa to friends should we not have already booked it again.

The pool was fabulous with sun loungers, table and chairs, bar and bbq - all for our personal use and completely as advertised. We were very happy with the accommodation and the owners Katy and Bob.
