Perfection is the word that comes to mind when describing our vacation experience at La Huerta El Noque. We gathered at this idyllic villa coming for an unforgettable week of laughter, splendid food and drink and pure relaxation. We arrived at the villa greeted by Renata's warm smile and we knew it would be a week to remember. The villa is beautifully nestled in a tranquil valley and its expansive grounds offer areas to gather for dining or conversation and plentiful areas to find solitude. The aromatic lavender lined walk opens to a magnificent pool area with alfresco seating, kitchen and a unique enclosed bathroom/shower. Inside, the villa exudes charm is impeccably furnished with a gracious living/dining area with working fireplace and a grand, fully stocked kitchen. The bedrooms with their crisp white linens, ultra comfortable beds, gorgeous en-suite baths and splendid views assure comfort at every level. Dinner cooked by Deborah and massages by Raja are a must!
The home and property is way over the top in terms of attention to detail and imaginative, no costs spared, decorative execution. And the property manager, Renata, is so super helpful with every request, large or small.
The pool area is spectacular; all the bedrooms are well appointed, generous in size with great views.
I wished the local dogs would ease up on overnight barking, but thankfully they were remote.
And Deborah, our villa cook, is so easy to work with and produces great dinners.
Beautiful place. Don't get fooled by the pictures - the pool area is much larger than it looks. Can only recommend it - you will not get disappointed.
La Huerta El Noque is a beautiful, personalized property that provided exactly what we wanted for our family. All our needs were met, the region was spectacular with lots of great things to do.
What a wonderful place - stunning location, friendly staff, gorgeous and clean house...doesn't get any better. Our mixed generation family trip was perfectly suited for El Noque. We were sad to leave!
The house was beautiful and very well appointed and stocked. The staff was also great, Renata the house manager was very attentive and helpful and Deborah, the cook was terrific also. The one big draw back was the flies. The property is surrounded by farm land and animals which attracted the flies I assume because they were not a problem when we went anywhere else. They were terrible and everywhere, in the house and on the grounds. We actually left a day early because we could not take the flies any longer, they were that bad. The bedrooms in the apartment were also a draw back - not very comfortable, no mosquito netting and that was definitely a problem. I would not recommend 13 people ever in the property and 12 is probably too many also - the bedrooms in the main house were all great but they only sleep 9 people.
