Our Family Holiday in Villa Sierra Magina
Our family group, comprising five adults, and two young children aged five and one stayed for a week at the Villa over the period 29th July - 5th August.
On arrival at the villa we were met by Martina (property manager) who provided the handover and talked us through the necessary details re the villa, all of which was very comprehensive and helpful.
The interior of the villa was excellent, extremely clean and all furnishings, appliances etc of high quality throughout. Bedrooms were spacious and the beds particularly
comfortable, and there is also plenty of wardrobe space.
For families with young children, bear in mind that there is no bath in the property, only showers .
The kitchen area was fine for all our needs with every appliance crockery / cuttlery you could want provided, and as previously mentioned extremely clean throughout.
Just one area of disappointment was with the TV and Wifi. TV channels are almost all German, and we could only find one channel, Sky News speaking English. It would have been really helpful to have a couple of English speaking cartoon channels for the children to help them unwind at the end of the day. Wifi, was very poor throughout the building, and you cannot rely on it, you will be heavily reliant upon your data allowance if you want to get on to the internet, etc.
The exterior of the villa provides good views from the front towards the sea, at the rear there is open land/ scrub, but this is generally well hidden by well thought through landscaping too the gardens etc.
The swimming pool was great, not really suited to swimming up and down as a little too small but perfect for family with kids. The surrounding sunbathing area was clean and nicely laid out and a great sun trap throughout the day..
Unfortunately it is not permitted to barbecue out side, due to local govt restrictions (fire hazard) in this area of Spain, that was a real shame, as for many people the family barbecue is a regular feature of a villa holiday. A portable electric hotplate was made available for outside use , but regrettably did not work.
Location wise, I would say you would almost certainly benefit from renting a car, we did not and with hindsight this was a mistake. Most of the nice beaches, and shops etc will need a taxi ride / bus to get too.
Hope this review helps you.
Well equipped villa, spacious and comfortable
Located close to shops bars and restaurants and 10 minutes from beach
Excellent property inside and out, extremely clean, full of all home comforts and very safe.
My family stayed at the property for a week in August 2018. We were greeted by Martina who runs the property lettings from the German owners. She is a fountain of knowledge of the area and the villa which helped as we settled in.
The villa has everything you would desire for a relaxing stay inside or out, throughout every room.. High quality kitchen products, roomy and powerful showers, comfortable beds, even more comfortable sun loungers plus all beach towels, superb air conditioning, wifi, clean and adequately sized pool, high level of security, the list goes on...
It is also based 2 mins walk from the supermarket, coffee shop, newsagent, hairdressers which is very handy should you need to use them. The beach(s) is also within walking distance but to drive is 5 mins which I would recommend (although leave early to get a parking spot).
You are also 1 min in the car from the main A7 road which takes you in either direction to other beaches, towns, places etc so quite handy. It's not essential but I would recommend having a car should you want to travel around being based from this villa..
There is construction work going on to the front of the property currently which will be finished in 2019 and will only add value and contentment to this villa and location.
We weren't disappointed so I am sure those who book in the future will feel the same.
Dear Ben & family, thanks for your visit, you were some nice guests and I hope you will come back next year. The construction will be finished by spring 2019 and our clients can enjoy this very tranquil spot with sea views.
PS ipod is on the way! Martina
A lovely spacious and well equipped villa with a great pool area and in a good location!
We had such a lovely stay at this fantastic villa. It has lots of space and is in a good location with a supermarket and some bars and restaurants only a short walk away. The house has a lovely home from home feeling and has everything you need, all to a very high standard. The downstairs ensuite bedroom leading directly on to the pool terrace was such a nice bonus. The elevated position of the house allows privacy and gives a nice feeling of space when outdoors. The garden and pool area are lovely and the pool is a good size. To have the off street parking and garage was good and reassuring for us with our rental car as we knew it was safely parked. The security of the house is also very good. There is some construction going on directly opposite the house but this looks fairly close to completion. We loved our stay here and wouldn’t hesitate to return to this villa if visiting this area again!
What can I say. from organisation to arrival and departure was perfect.
Lovely villa with great access to all locations.
Will be back 100%
