From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and at home. The detached cottage is atmospheric and very clean and comfortable, with nice furnishings and a very large and comfy bed. There is a sleeping area, lounge area with TV, sofa, table and chairs, a fully equipped kitchen and modern bathroom with a large and powerful shower. There is access to a washing machine and plenty of drying area.
Outside there is a large table and various chairs, sunbeds, a hammock and swinging chair. There is a wonderful roof-top patio with views of the sunset over the sea and mountains on the other side.
The host, Michele, who lives in a separate house on the property, is very welcoming and is a mine of information on places to see, where to eat out, nearest supermarkets, shops etc. When we were confused about where to get the best free tapas, she took us to one of her favourites and explained the menu for us. It was a lovely evening. Michele also advised us on the best beaches, particularly for snorkelling, and had beach umbrellas to borrow.
There are two friendly dogs and a cat at the property, who aren't allowed into the cottage, so no worries about allergies. They're well behaved and not pushy, so if you're not sure about dogs they're no problem.
Michele grows all sorts of fruit trees and veggies on the land. We were there in October and there was a constant supply of fresh, sweet, exotic fruits!
We had such a peaceful and relaxing stay and would highly recommend it for those who want something more than an apartment in a large block. It gave us a taste of what it is like to live in Spain, away from the tourists. We will definitely go there again.
Getting there: You need a car, and we easily found it by putting the coordinates Michele had sent us in advance into Google Maps.
We totally loved our stay here the apartment was clean and tidy with everything you need. The owners are great and met us on our arrival and offered all the help and advice you could ever need, they even left us their contact numbers in case we needed there help with booking tours etc.
We were welcomed with a large basket of fruit and a fridge full of water. Calahonda is a lovely seaside village and if we are in the area again we will definitely stay her.
thanks so much for sharing your apartment and village with us!
