                                                        The villa was lovely and Pete and Hearher were fantastic hosts.

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        Heather and Pete recommended some lovely places to visit that were in easy reach of the villa. The villa was fantastic and we've never seen stars like it as the whole valley falls pitch black on an evening. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back!!

                                                        Great rural family holiday

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        A lovely old Spanish farmhouse in a quiet rural location surrounded by farmland. The farmhouse is spacious and well equipped for a family holidayou with a lovely patio area with a bow and a good size pool. A car is essential if staying here as it is at least 15 minster drive into the centre of Albox. The owner, Linda, was very welcoming but unobtrusive during our stay. We are had a lovely weeks stay and would recommend this accommodation to others who enjoy a peaceful relaxing location.

                                                        Fantastic villa and wonderful hosts

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        We spent a great 2 weeks in Velez-Rubio. It was an exceptional villa with great facilities. Our hosts, Sue and Nigel, made us very welcome and made settling in a breeze. The location is off the beaten track but we had the peace and quiet we were looking for. Plenty to see and do locally, or if you want to just chill out, this villa is perfect. Thanks for a great holiday! The Appleby family
