The house was spacious enough for two people and very clean with terrific views. The village is probably the cleanest that we have visited so far and the people are so very warm and friendly. We were on speaking terms with quite a few villagers by the time we left and felt quite involved with village life. The walking was extremely good in the area although tough and not for the faint-hearted! We would certainly recommend this house to anyone contemplating staying in the village. Communication from the owners is first class.

The house has evertything you could possiblly need and for me as a techie....even had apple chargers, bluetooth speaker, connection from TV for my MacBook Pro and fast interenet ! As well of course, as great little pool, terrace, good kitchen etc etc etc.... Quiet setting but only minutes from shops, bars and restaurants and 15to 20min drive from my favourite place....Marbella Old Town and Orange Square.

Had a very relaxing few weeks. A car is essential due to the location but that wasn't a problem for us as we love to explore and this was an ideal base from which to do so. The only thing I would suggest is to have more information to hand for guests such as checking out info - we had to ask what we were supposed to do with the keys on our final day as we hadn't been told - and places to visit. This wasn't a problem for us as we know the area really well, but would have been helpful for first time visitors. Would definitely recommend and would be happy to return at a future date.
