                                                              Another wonderful stay at Brisas del Cielo!

                                                              This is our second stay at the villa - and it was as delightful as the first in 2009. The villa is well equipped, very comfortable and the views are just stunning. Both the owners and the local staff were super - organized, responsive and concerned for our comfort. We couldn't have asked for more.

                                                              A perfect hideout.

                                                              Our daughter has just moved to Istan,hence our visit, and we could not have found a more perfect hideout for ourselves. The house is beautifully simple and clean and looked after by a local contact who left us a bowl of produce from her plot. Judith and Graeme had given us all the information we needed to find the house and to feel at home as soon as we stepped through the door.We spent many hours on the traditional roof-top terrace enjoying the panoramic views of the mountains and the white- painted village in the changing light of sunrises, sunsets and sharp Spanish sun and listening to the sounds of the local environment. Everything we needed for a simple existence was either in the house or could be found in the local shops. The baker had fresh multi-grain loaves ready at 8 in the mornings and most of our meals were eaten on the roof terrace. The village has a cared for, loved feeling and all the villagers we met were welcoming and tried to converse with us, inspite of our limited ( very) Spanish. We loved the narrow, winding streets peppered with beautifully tiled fountains of fresh water flowing from the mountain spring. When we first arrived it was the middle of the San Miquel Feria and the village was awash with red and yellow and green and white flags. It looked exciting and we were welcomed to join the street bands in the early morning, the music and dancing on the main plaza that carried on through the nights. It was lovely to see all ages out having fun and children on the dodgems till two in the morning! Istan has developed a range of natural and appropriate public facilities which are available for everyone to use. We enjoyed walks up to a viewpoint overlooking the reservoir, down to the Verde River and trails through an area of natural vegetation and farmland to the Springs.We will be back ( we haven't tried the swimming pool yet with the spectacular mountain backdrop!) and will recommend this house to friends. In fact we already have!
