Both were spotlessly clean and the furnishings lovely and the welcome pack was a nice touch. The villa catered for everything we could have wished for although our attempt with the pizza oven wasn't a great success !! We had a couple of wedding anniversaries during our stay and Judith did an amazing cake for me as a surprise for the couples so would recommend her if a special occasion occurs when you are there. Brett was always there to help with any issues and always responded quickly so want to thank him for that. I thoroughly recommend this villa and we will certainly be returning again. Well done Brett and Carolyn for keeping the place so beautiful.

The location of Albir is great for a relaxing holiday with enough bars and restaurants to keep you going and if that's not enough Benidorm is a 25 minutes bus journey away where you will find an abundance of shops, bars and restaurants. The beach at Albir is large to medium size pebbles this was not suitable for our little girl so we took advantage of the €1.50 bus rides to the golden sands of Benidorm beach. The apartment was excellent with everything you could possibly need and if you did not have it the owner was very helpful. The complex was great with indoor and outdoor pools that we had to ourselves for the majority of the stay. Security locks on all entry doors was reassuring to have too. This place is a real gem and I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Jean François for all your help before and during our holiday. Russell, Elaine and Grace
