We really enjoyed our stay - the property is very pretty and the pool is beautiful - it was such a peaceful place to spend a day around the pool or to return to after a day of sightseeing. The outdoor furniture was good - we were able to move it around easily to fit with how the sun moved around during the day - the terrace roof keeps you in the shade until mid/late afternoon so it was a good spot for having lunch under. It was really hot when we stayed (mid 30s during the day and down to about 25 degrees when sleeping - because there is no air con, it was pretty hard to sleep at night but I think it was hotter than normal for the end of August. In the evening though, it was great to sit with a glass of wine looking out at the view - the church on top of the hill is light up at night time, and the only sound you an hear is the clank of the goat bells and the occasional bark from a dog. The photos of the outside don't really do the place justice - the landscaping is much more established than the photos show - rather than bare earth on the far side of the pool (looking out from the finca), it is now nicely landscaped with flower bushes, trees and greenery - much nicer to look out on than we expected it to be. We've had a lovely break - thank you!

Miles from anywhere so the kids could be as loud as they wanted, with stunning views of olive groves for the adults. Big, clean pool for everyone to cool off in. The house is brand new, spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need. The hosts were so welcoming and left us an enormous basket of goodies. The driveway is lined with all sort of fruit trees which you can help yourselves to (figs, lemons, limes, olives, peaches, apricots, almonds). The extremely friendly resident goats were a huge hit with the children. We arrived in the middle of a heatwave and found the house a bit hot at night as there is no a/c or fans. We would definitely recommend this home and would happily return in the future.
