It started well with being picked up at the airport , after a long flight from cold and wet Glasgow, by our smiling hosts who then transported us in their comfortable car to our delightful holiday home. Our accommodation was even better than described on the website. Everything we would require for our self catering stay from comfortable beds, shower rooms, towels, sofa, kitchen equipment etc.were all to a very high standard. The village store and organic bakery were only a few minutes walk away along with the usual local Spanish bars. Nearby, a few minutes drive away, were 2 restaurants with fantastic mountain and lake views. We knew the area so revisited all our favourite places but due to the heat didn't do any distance walking. I caught up on my reading outside our apartment on our shady patio only disturbed by a lemon dropping from the tree above me. We love the area, it's so beautiful and it was so easy to get to the coast or up and through the mountain pass. We were sorry to leave and have to fly home to chilly, wet Glasgow.

It was a stunning location, although we felt in the middle of the countryside it was only a short drive and all the facilities we required were on hand. During the online booking process Kath was always very helpful and replied to all my email queries swiftly and her recommendations were excellent. The villa itself was fantastic will everything we required and more. We ate many of our meals in the evening on the balcony and watched the sun go down. Having two children aged 11 and 14, the pool was put to good use every day. Also enjoyed the facility of the outside bar as my 11 year old perfected her skills of making mocktails!! Having a hire car allowed us to spend many mornings exploring the delightful whitewashed villages that surround the villa before returning to unwind and relax. Would highly recommend this villa and will definitely return. Thank you Kath
