We thoughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely villa with beautiful mountain views in a peaceful location , there is a riding stables opposite the villa which we sat most afternoons just watching the beautiful horses ideal location for horse riding . Just a few minutes walk down the rambla are 2 very friendly bar / restaurants we felt very welcome . I was amazed how well equipped the kitchen was it had everything we needed I love to cook and I have to say it was like being in my own kitchen, there was a very well stocked pantry to use if need be it was like home from home. We did sit around the pool but it was to cold to go in it was November but the weather was lovely and warm if you got out of the wind, it wasn’t a problem as there are lots of sitting areas so we always found somewhere to sit. You sometimes could hear the local dogs barking but this is Spain and we loved meeting them and their owners as we missed our dogs whilst we was away. There was good communication from Mark the owner who left contact numbers if we needed anything. Overall we loved the villa and the location was perfect for us , the only thing we feel that could be improved was the shower there was very little water pressure, but we would definitely stay here again . Thankyou Mark for sharing your lovely villa .5*
The major plus point for us was the extreme peace and quiet we enjoyed and the chance to wake up undisturbed by anyone or anything. Silence is so rare in our lives and the chance to experience it for two weeks was magical. All you can see are the mountains, sky and surrounding fields full of almond trees. All you can hear is birdsong and bees humming.
The villa is well equipped and I felt comfortable doing more cooking there than I normally would on holiday. Small touches such as an international adaptor, hairdryers and shopping bags were very useful, as was lots of English DVDs and Xbox games. There was a lot of international television but sadly nothing in English, however Netflix came to the rescue and worked well considering the remote location. As we went in mid-October we didn't use the pool room facilities, the plancha or the pool. The pool was delightful to look at but far too cold in October - we're not that hardy! so we'll have to go back to try it out.
Although there is sleeping space for 8, I would say there is only room for 4 adults comfortably in the villa, unless you spend all your time outdoors. Again, not a problem in summer.
It is worth emphasising the remoteness of the villa because with the beauty of the peace and silence comes a 25 minute drive before you reach civilisation. We loved being remote, but the practicalities of being so far away from everyone meant that we spent a lot more time driving than we wanted to (and we love exploring by car so that is saying something). The twisty mountain roads were also the cause of several bouts of travel sickness amongst us adults, particularly in the dark, so consider if this would cause you a problem. Be prepared for the last 200m to the villa which is an extremely steep, uneven track of stones so when hiring a car, make it something a bit more robust.
However this is a jewel of an area with plenty to do and places to explore, including Grenada and Murcia. We would definitely return. Thanks particularly to the owners for their prompt contact, extremely helpful and friendly approach and fast return of our deposit.
