Andrew was very efficient & offered good instructions & all worked well. The property is newly converted with all the facilities you would expect in a UK property. Its in excellent condition. The Casa is on the end of an old farmstead complex on the edge of a cliff ( the photos don't really show that properly) so don't go if you have issues with heights & I would NOT recommend it for infants for this reason, otherwise its a little bit of Spanish perfection!
The track down to the property is 'entertaining' for the last 100 metres but you cant have isolation & expect to have perfect tarmacked tracks to boot,that's part of the charm of Casa Turquoisa.
I watched Vultures & other raptors soaring overhead most days & with the Castril & Cazorla y Segura national parks so close this is a paradise for nature lovers. Go there.
We had a very relaxing break at Villa Caramel. Perfect for complete relaxation with no neighbouring houses and a view over the olive and almond groves. The only person we regularly saw was the goat herder!
The villa itself is really well equiped with everything we needed for our 10 days. We cooked there every night, including on the wood BBQ outside.
Neighbouring Castril had supermarkets with the basics, but we went to Basa for fresh fish etc, although this was 45 mins drive.
We were also able to enjoy the amazing tomatoes, peppers, figs grown in the garden.
Jose was available if we needed him, but we liked the fact that we weren't disturbed with cleaning visits every few days.
We did a couple of walks from the villa, one up to the top of the hill behind the villa, which revealed panomaric views of the reservoir and surrounding mountains. We also walked down to the reservoir one evening when it was a bit cooler.
