A car is essential as it is a bit out of the way but you will not be disappointed. Thanks to Heather and Pete for a fantastic stay.

Set in a stunning location, only a little drive from the Local Village Rubio which itself is beautiful which some lovely small bars and great places to eat. A car is advisable if you want to get out and about as there are no taxis or busses locally, but don't let this put you off as if you want to stay at home simply stock up relax and enjoy the pool and surroundings. The apartment is part of a stunning mill conversion with superb facilities, a traditional style with a modern feel and kept in pristine condition. As for the hosts, they live on site and great you with great warmth and whilst they live on site they you would not know they are there, unless of course you need them, then there is plenty to offer... great conversation and knowledge of the local area and will do anything to help you along with your holiday, but they are only about if you need them.... Nothing was too much trouble! Simply a stunning well kept gem in a beautiful area surrounded by Olive groves with spectacular views...... We will be back! Thanks, Richard & Michelle.
