                                                              What a great place to stay, a wonderful apartment kept pristine by wonderful hosts Nigel & Sue! 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.

                                                              Brilliant experience from booking to check out. Ed was extremely helpful with providing all the information we needed prior to our stay and also information when we left. Very quick to respond on email which is a big weight off your mind when booking a villa abroad. Security deposit was also returned very promptly. The villa itself was lovely and well appointed, even has an ice machine!!! Not seen one of them before! Everything you need is supplied. There are a couple of places to eat outside which was nice and plenty of seating and sunbeds. The villa is very rural so you are in the middle of nowhere - which we personally love - there isn't anything in walking distance. The town of Albox is about 20 minutes away. There is a big supermarket there which was great. There was a restaurant with good reviews on tripadvisor called La Cena .. unfortunately we didn't book so didn't get to sample their wears! So if you want to go there ... book first! Oria is nearer but we didn't actually go there as there isn't much there I don't think. We had amazing weather and there was a lovely breeze all the time which was great. Beds were all comfortable and showers great. Always had hot water and there are ceiling fans too. There is also a nice flat screen TV should you want to watch anything - it has a USB port too in case you want to watch any films - found that handy. All in all a lovely break away which was very needed. Thanks Ed and also thanks to Ray who looks after the property and told us a great place to go and get free spring water .. great little find that. Kate & Co

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

                                                              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!!
