Peaceful escape

5 of 5
I spent a short 4 day break here in March. I was travelling alone and had been attracted to the property by all the photographs and reviews. I wanted peace,quiet, a little warmth and a place to feel safe and relaxed. I found all of the above. I only left the property to visit the supermarket, a 10 minute drive away. The views are beautiful, and I spend many hours just gazing at the world from afar while sipping some of the fine local wine. If I wasn't enjoying the views out the front I was nestled in the perfectly comfortable 'swinging chair' listening to the trickle of the water in the pool and being rocked gently into a comfortable sleep! Michael the owner was very charming, friendly, welcoming and great company to chat to when I had had enough of talking to myself. Layla, his canine companion is a delight, and also took great delight in my plastic bottles. I came home feeling greatly refreshed, having found a wonderful place and what I hope are two lovely new friends. Thank you both so much for looking after me and making me feel so welcome. I really look forward t when I can return.

A home from home in a stunning position

5 of 5
This is the 8th time we have stayed at La Atalaya del sol. It is not a typical holiday property, it was somebody's home and feels like it. The views are quite stunning and with several outside seating areas you are spoilt for choice. With the large conservatory area even it Winter it is possible to appreciate the view. Without doubt our favourite holiday spot and Carl and Janice are very helpful and friendly, the perfect hosts.
