Fantastic pool, lots of areas to relax in sun or shade. Extremely helpful owner, great communications and very nice and helpful property manager. Welcome pack was much appreciated. Highly recommended property. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 week holiday. Thanks very much.

The property is located in a tiny village (a car is essential) surrounded by olive groves and is full of character. There's plenty of space and the courtyard works really well for eating out, enjoying the weather & BBQs. It's been nicely renovated with the modern comforts whilst retaining it's original character. Everything very clean, well equipped and in line with the description & the owner was very helpful providing lots of guidance before hand (including directions, places to visit, responding to a couple of questions we had etc). There's also a stock of leaflets, maps etc in the property along with lots of suggestions of places to visit. Only word of warning would be the stairs which are quite steep - our 4 year old was fine but this might be a concern with very young children. We visited all of the obvious locations including Ronda, Seville, Granada & Cordoba. These are all between 1 & 1.5 hours easy driving mostly on the motorway. We also really enjoyed Antequera, El Torcal & El Chorro which are much nearer and spectacular. It's a very central location, with the coast in easy reach as well.
