We arrived in the dark at nearly midnight, not knowing what to expect when we arrived having only the pictures to set our expectations. There was a welcome basket with everything we needed to sort us our after a long afternoon travelling and just enough lights to have a peek around the property. It wasn't however, until the morning we realised just how incredible this villa and its location was. The views are absolutely spectacular, the villa itself has endless pockets where you can sit an relax, enjoy some food and take it all in - whether that's on the decking, by the pool, amongst the trees or on the patio. The villa itself has a lovely homely feel and was easy to settle into, there's ample storage space, plenty of room to move and a safe.
Beyond the villa, Periana is a lovely sleepy village where you can meander the streets, the village in the opposite direction had a great butchers/bakers so stocking up was easy. Further East Frigiliana is a beautiful hillside village that's well worth an afternoon and a couple of wines. Granada was perfect for an evening meal and a starlit trip up to the Alhambra and its grounds. Seville offered stunning architecture and a memorable daytrip to one of the hottest (in more ways than one) cities in Europe. The walk from Periana along the old rail route was filled with stunning views up to the mountains and down to the lake and beyond. Finally kayaking on the lake was well worth the experience as it gives a totally different perspective of the area (plus a good workout).
All in all it was a wonderful adventure in a beautiful pocket of Andalucia, the villa offered a perfect base for us to adventure out and about while still maintaining a space where we could escape it all and just enjoy our own company. The views are stunning, the setting is perfect and we wouldn't change a thing about our stay - especially getting engaged, that was pretty awesome.
If you're thinking about booking, stop, just book it, you won't regret it.
