Stayed the last two weeks of August with the family, ages 1 to 71. The villa is well equipped and very home from home. The bedrooms are all spacious and very comfortable. Most have their own balcony with either pool views or views over the town/ countryside. The rooms are also ensuite, which is lovely when you are a big group. There is plenty of space both indoors and outdoors. The pool area was a great hit with the kids. We spent most of the holiday lazing around the pool. The villa was very clean and well maintained. Gary the host, emailed me, regularly to make sure we had everything we needed. When we arrived the 'baton' was handed over to Jimmy and Stacey, who were on hand for us to ask any questions about the villa or village. They were very knowledgeable of the area and the surrounding area. We loved the outdoor spaces that the villa provided and had many lovely family dinners, including BBQ's. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to cook dinner.
The village is around a 5 mins walk away. It's not touristy and most if not all of the locals don't speak English but they do understand you. They love it if you try and speak a little Spanish. There are many restaurants in the village. All are very reasonably priced and the portion sizes are huge! I would recommend D'Vinos, La Casa, Isabella Pizzas, Contracorriente and Flying Fish and Chips. If you are going out try and check if the restaurants are open as it is hit and miss. A visit to the museum is a must ( Museo de Belenes) - check opening times as it is random times. We also visited the lakes (Ardales) where you can hire, pedalos, paddle boards- a really beautiful area. The next town Antequera is very pretty with lots of nice places to eat and drink. This villa has it all, whether you want to lounge around a pool and amble to dinner or have a base to explore this lovely area of Spain. Thank you for our stay would highly recommend staying here.
