Owner was very friendly and helpful. We had a very enjoyable five day stay in the villa which had excellent facilities.

Located at the end of a small village, nearest shops are in Orgiva about 1 mile away. The owners, Stefan and Naomi, live in the adjoining cottage. They are very friendly and helpful, but respect your privacy. The accommodation was clean, but quite small with a rustic style decor. All the basics were provided. The pool, though small, is a great boon. It is kept very clean. The garden surrounding the pool is gorgeous, it has welcome shade at different times of the day. The views are wonderful. There is built-in BBQ and dining table under a large olive tree. If requested a delicious 4-course evening meal can be provided by Naomi at a very modest price. A car is essential. There is on-road parking. We weren't interested in the local beaches, just as well as they only scored one out of 10. We enjoyed horse riding, walking, and a day high in the Sierra Nevada. We had a most enjoyable time.
