                            Highly recommended - enjoyable stay

                            5 of 5
                            I booked this villa as a surprise for my husband's 40th & he was overwhelmed by it all. 9 adults stayed very comfortably & we still had beds to spare. This is a beautiful villa which is well maintained & the owners provided first class service!!! The villa:- The bedrooms were well equipped, comfortable, clean & towels provided. The downstairs room remains cool but the other bedrooms can get warm so I did feedback to the owner that having air conditioning would be very beneficial. There is a small living area combined with a large dining area with plenty of space for a large group to eat all together. The villa has 2 kitchens & is fully equipped with everything you need. We spent most of our time in the beautifully maintained garden & pool with plenty of space to sunbathe or be under shade by the trees. There is an outside bathroom area which is very convenient. Plenty of parking, table tennis, table football & other things to keep you entertained. We enjoyed a BBQ meal outside. The place is very well equipped so we didn't have to spend much buying the extras such as soap, washing up liquid, salt and pepper, etc. It is very clean and with a homely feel to it. In summary, all positive & I highly recommend it to groups of friends & families, only downside is that it could do with having air conditioning installed. The owners:- Outstanding customer service. Excellent communication with Ive before & during our stay. Marmen owns the villa & they both went out of their way to make sure we were happy & had everything we needed. They booked the boat hire for us, organised a meal delivered to the villa, booked our restaurant & were at hand (phone) with anything we needed. They are wonderful people which I will remain in contact with. The location:- I would recommend hiring a car as there are definitely some beautiful places to visit. We were only there for the weekend so we didn't want to travel too far. We went to Embalse de San Juan which is no more than a 10 min drive. This is an amazing lake with a beach where you can swim & hire boats. We did both & thoroughly enjoyed it. The area was clean & unspoilt. It was not overcrowded as there are plenty of areas along the lake where you can sunbathe & swim. I'd highly recommend hiring a boat (with or without driver) which is not too expensive. Ive emailed me lots of places to visit for adults and children so we are planning to go back there to explore further. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay - Thank you x
