It was our first trip to that (Axarquia) part of Spain, and we wanted to get an idea of what the area was like. It was beautiful, and we particularly liked the lake. Casa Juan was an ideal base for touring round the area, with a good access road, and plenty of amenities nearby, (of which the restaurant Venta El Charco and the local fresh bread bakery were standouts within easy walking distance). As part of our trip was about finding somewhere to buy, it was interesting to be able to compare the villa to many of the properties for sale. In particular we decided that a good lake view was a must, and this villa is superbly located in that respect, and for an outdoor lifestyle in general. The people we met (the neighbours - both ex pat and Spanish locals), were very friendly and could not have been more helpful. Similarly the owners were very lovely people and were very responsive to any questions we had over the period, as well as giving us useful tips about what to see and do, or point us towards people who could be helpful to us. The villa itself was furnished to a nice standard, and for us proved to be an excellent base from which to get to know the area. There was TV and internet which was a welcome distraction for the kids / teens in our party, but the adults were mostly enjoying meals and drinks from the terrace, and the weather was good enough to be almost permanently outside. Overall we had a great time, and a big Thank You to John and Tracy for making our trip so hassle free.

The villa is equipped with everything that you could wish for and the gardens are a delight - lots of seating to enjoy the spectacular views all around the villa and some lovely relaxing spots around the pool. We really enjoyed dining al fresco but equally pleased to be able to eat indoors when the evenings turned a little chilly! The location is very tranquil and peaceful but it's not too far from Velez Malaga and the coast if you fancy a change of scenery. Would recommend a hire car! We spent some great evenings up in the village of Los Romanes, enjoying music at the local bar and delicious steaks at El Charco. Chris and Claire are able to recommend lots of things to do and services - they really have thought of everything! Thank you both - can't wait to come back
