Large family very pleased with the villa.

5 of 5
We arrived at the villa with 3 kids, 2 grandparents and 2 adults. There was no problem getting into the villa as Ray was very helpful and gave us the keys as soon as we arrived. The views were gorgeous and the area was serene and peaceful. It was the perfect place for a get away holiday to relax. The pool size was amazing and was very refreshing. The villa itself was very clean and the pool and garden were clean too. The villa itself had everything we desired and more, it was filled with utilities and they were all very useful. We've been travelling with the kids 10 years and my boys gave it a 10/10. The towns ALBOX nearby had everything we needed and were beautiful. We wish we took 3 weeks for it. We recommend this to everyone and would definitely consider coming back.

Magnificent location, superb casa, wonderful hosts

5 of 5
Only 5 minutes drive from Oria along a breathtaking mountain road you will not be dissappointed when you arrive at Casa Erizo. Set against a magnificent mountain backdrop, just enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the place. Just chill by the pool or have a drive to many interesting nearby places such as Saliente monastery, mini Hollywood or local towns Albox or Velez Rubio. Oria has everything you need, shops, bars, bank.Heather and Pete are wonderful hosts and the casa is very dog friendly as our dog Eliza had a great time. Thanks for the bike rides Pete and thanks to both you and Heather for making us feel so welcome.
