Sofas were overused, but covered with washed blankets for that reason. My lady wanted extra cleanliness, so we took some extra antibacterial wipes and did dusting upon arrival. There was fridge, tv, wifi and oven available at our disposal, so we almost felt like home. Annoying part was that there was no kettle and hairdryer, and cooking appliances were really old. Property was in very convenient location, bus stop to town just outside 20 meters away, bus ticket top up also just outside in tobacco shop ,mercadona supermarket was also very close, so we felt like at home. Lady met us upon arrival, handed keys and explained everything in spanish what to expect. Owner of house was available to contact anytime if any concerns. Overall this was a good and fun stay, price was very reasonable too. We will be coming back for sure as this was really nice holiday and no problems with this service. Got what we paid for definitely, thank you Maria!

The owner Cruz met us on arrival and had left a welcome bottle of wine in the fridge. We had a magical few days discovering this historical, beautiful and gastronomic delight of a city.
