The hosts, Gordon and Carol are very friendly and helpful; everything that could be needed is there. The apartment contains a porch, entrance hall / Kitchen, fully equipped; two large double bedrooms each with their own en-suite shower room w.c. Mosquito netting on the windows mean that you can sleep at night with the windows open and not be bitten! There is a large lounge /dining area with large screen satellite TV and a cd/tape machine for those who want to escape TV, a good assortment of novels are available also. The property is in an excellent state of repair, with good quality fittings and well crafted woodwork. The garden has a nice above ground pool and is attractively lit at night. On the opposite side of the road are olive groves so that your dog can explore and experience new smells! There is also on-site off road gated parking. The apartment is out 5 minutes walk to the nearest bar/cafe and there are others in the village together with a local shop. Velez-Malaga is a short drive away and has international supermarkets there, Lidl, Carrefour etc. A little further on is the Eroski shopping precinct/mall with over 100 shop, and on the outskirts of Torre del Mar which has excellent beaches and restaurants, it also has a "Dog Beach" which is great because dogs are banned on almost all Spanish beaches, this is located beside "Camping 2". There is an excellent English speaking Vet in Torre del Mar for animals which need certified worming treatment before return to UK. They have an English website, and so cheap compared to UK ! Torre del Mar is approx 30 minutes scenic drive past the Vinuela Reservoir where you can practise water sports.

We have been visiting the lake at Vinuela for some years but this is our first stay at this Villa and I must say it is one of the best we have experienced. The location is stunning, the views of the lake and the mountains are amazing. The Villa itself is easy to find and access - always a plus in this area - and it is very welcoming as you drive through the gates and pull up at the front. The inside is well furnished and equipped, the kitchen is lovely and made it easy to cook some of the delicious food that we bought at local markets and supermarkets.The bedrooms are spacious and all on suite and in addition there is a lovely lounge and sunroom with fabulous views over the lake. It is the outside space that we loved the most however, a great pool and lots of areas to sit and relax both in the sun and the shade. A good BBQ too. The location is good, lake Vinuela and the surrounding peaceful mountains are beautiful yet you are less than 30 minutes away from lovely beaches at Nerja, Burriana Maro and Torre Del Mar. There are some really good restaurants and places to visit nearby. We always love a visit to Alcaucin and Commares if possible. I would thoroughly recommend this Villa and we would love to visit again. Thank you Nancy and Justin for such a good stay. Judith Al Jon and Carolyn (Cardiff)
