The cottage is very well equipped for summer or winter (I've stayed in August and December). This time we didn't have a car, so planned our trips - walking down into Frigiliana takes about 20 minutes; walking back up takes twice as long so we simply budgeted for taxis for that! During the festival the taxi fare almost doubles to 15 euros, but drops again to 8 the following day. One evening our taxi was so well air-conditioned that we welcomed the blast of heat when we opened the car door on arrival. Ants and mosquitoes were both more evident this summer than previously, and after my initial fascination with the different kinds of ants (the big ones come out at night...), I soon got tired of them, especially after finding them in my bread - it pays to keep all food in the fridge.The provision of anti-mosquito night wall plugs was a welcome find, as was the ant killer under the sink. But not even the bugs could dent my delight with the place. The terrace is perfect for private sunbathing, or watching the fireworks on the final night of the festival, and the little gazebo at the bottom of the steps is a rewarding spot for reflection and writing. I love this place, and warmly recommend it. It's comfortable, quirky and has everything you need. Just bring a sense of adventure (for dealing with the bugs).

A beautiful villa with pool in a stunning location...Set in the hills with whitewashed villages close by...picture postcard perfect! Car hire is a must and the roads are very twisty but in perfect condition-no potholes here!! Despite a late arrival our hosts were happy to meet up and guide us to the villa...a pre ordered provision pack had been left and they very kindly popped in a bottle of fizz and some beers too...A quick catch up the next morning with a trip into Competa to show us the road and tell us what shops were available...extremely helpful... A blissful week of sunshine,good food and company ensued...what a shame it had to end.
