This property lived up to those expectations in every way. There was excellent communication with the owners and with the lady who was on hand to meet and greet us on arrival and show us around the house. She was also well informed about the town and local area. The house was very cosy and comfortable with a very well thought out sunroom/roof terrace. We have lived in a bungalow for 30 years so we're not used to the 39 steps from the ground floor kitchen dinner to the roof terrace however we got used to them after a couple of days and did not find them a problem although those with mobility issues might struggle. Overall it was a very pleasant stay and I would be happy to stay there again. The house is well positioned in this small town and the slightly larger town of Competa is just a 35 minute walk away. You could do the walk in about 25 minutes but we kept stopping to take in the view. Whilst on the subject of views, the one from the roof terrace is fabulous.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The new metro is around the corner and the buses are regular and inexpensive, that is if you wish to leave the area. The longer we stayed, the more we preferred just squiffing around the neighbor. It became more fulfilling than rushing into old town to sit with all the other English and Americans. The apartment is less than 10 minutes walk from the bus and train stations. Great news if you wish to take day trips out of town. The apartment is serviced by all the major supermarkets: Aldi, SuperSol, Lidl, Mercado and dozens upon dozens of small markets. There is a regular fish market within three minutes of the apartment. Oh, and a weekly farmer's market. The apartment is on the third floor of a nine story, quiet tower. It is well appointed, exceptionally clean and comfortable. It is in fact the largest apartment we have ever rented in Spain. But the real joy is to be found in the hosts: Katie and Jose. Usually hosts disappear like snow off a ditch after giving you the keys, but Katie and Jose are special, very, very special. I feel safe in saying we've never had such engaging and attentive hosts. Yet, we never felt intruded upon. It was Christmas and Katie had decorated the apartment for us. Lovely touch. And the day before Christmas, she and Jose arrived with a hamper they'd made up just for us. So Sweet. Advice and tips were dispensed within seconds of texting or calling. They anticipated our needs at every turn. It was great knowing they were at the other end of the phone and really cared that we enjoyed ourselves. We are already planning a return visit. Urban Spain at its best.

We have stayed in many houses with views in Europe over the years, but this is undoubtedly the best. The house is on a very small plot but the view makes it feel vast. Dont be fooled by the pool pictures, it is really just a puddle with a Jacuzzi (which runs for just 30 seconds before you have to get out and switch it back on!) - not for swimming. Pool lights didnt work. We were here for Christmas so it was too cold anyway, although we tried it! The sea in Scotland is warmer. House is very elegantly decorated and we only had one problem and that was with the heating which if you come at any other time will not be an issue. The owner had not bothered to get the place opened up before we arrived, despite our requests and it took 3 days to warm it up - at over 600m it gets cold as soon as the sun disappears around 4pm and stays cold until 11am. Wood for the fire was stored outside (even though we were told it was all under cover) in bags and the week before they had had torrential rains so we had to collect our own - something we did on our walks so no real hassle but certainly a lack of thought on his part. Local village is friendly and there is very easy access to Malaga (the market is a must), Granada etc . Do book the Alhambra before you go - we assumed that it would be less busy at Christmas but it was fully booked when we got there - their website is a mess. Granada itself is still well worth a visit. All in all we had a lovely time despite the lack of help and the view alone was the worth booking.
