The house was lovely, clean and spacious. It had everything we needed. On the website, it said towels were included, but we decided to take our own, but there was no need to as there were more than enough towels. The house is in a development, but you definitely need a car to go anywhere. There is a super swimming pool nearby which we used on several occasions. It cost 2 euros 80 for adults and 2 euros for children. We ate at the Meson Viejo del Jamon which only cost us 9 euros 50 per head for a 3 course meal including wine. Make sure you leave plenty of time to visit Salamanca and don't miss the convent. The piscina natural is fabulous and not busy, a good drive, but well worth a visit. La Alberca is a beautiful Spanish village with a traditional Spanish atmosphere. We went to the tourist information where we were given a map with a trail that incorporates the main sites in the village. Raul is very good at answering any queries before you go. Overall, we had a lovely stay!

The apartment was very central, very clean and comfortable and the owner very responsive to any questions. We feel, however, we need to highlight an issue for the sake of future guests. The apartment is described as having air conditioning, but all it has is one free standing air cooler of the kind where you need to put a rubber tube through an open window. The minute the window is opened to do this, the hot air from outside comes in. The machine itself is extremely noisy and heavy. The bedroom in the apartment is to the back and reached via 5 or 6 steps. Outside of the bedroom window on floors above and below the apartment are a number of air conditioners (proper ones) outside other people's apartments, which create a high amount of heat that permeates into the bedroom, making it the hottest room in the apartment. When we spoke with the owner about the issue he said we should move the 'air conditioner' from the living/dining room into the bedroom but we pointed out it was a) too heavy to lift (even for two of us) and b) too noisy to be able to sleep, even if we could get it into the bedroom. We asked for a desk fan, which the owner provided, but it didn't help as all it was doing was circulating hot air. We spent six very hot and sleep-deprived nights as a result. The description of amenities for this apartment should not list 'air conditioning' as this is false. We hope you will contact the owner and ask him either to install a proper air conditioning system or describe what there actually is i.e. a portable, free standing air cooler (that is, frankly, useless) I would have rated it 5 stars, except for this issue.
