Very good villa.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was exactly as expected so that was an accurate decription. The villa was clean on arrival and although we were early, all the cleaning was done. The aircon was certainly appreciated and all the appliances worked well. There were only 3 sunbeds, this didn't affect us with 2 small children, bigger parties may want to ask for me beds in advance. We never actually met anyone to do with the villa, we only had 1 problem, the pool filter blocked and by the time we came back from dinner it was fixed. An excellent villa and very well placed close to the coast but still away form all that touristy stuff and chance to be in real spain. The Hotel Vinuela is very good for food and very good for price. The none slip tiles around the pool were great when you have 2 small children running around.

fab to be back

  • 5 of 5

it's fab to be back for a third year we love coming back to villa Francis it's like home from home, clean and well maintained as always. The manager phoned me on arrival to let us know the internet was not working he had informed the company and it would be back on by Monday and it was the kids were back on line that morning. Villa Francis is a must once you've stayed you will want to return.

Absolutely a fabulous villa, there were 8 adults altogether and there was plenty of room for all of us if it was breakfast on the patio or dinner around the dinning table we could all sit together even around the pool there was seating for everyone. the villa was spotless and well maintained to a very high standard,the most relaxing holiday you could hope for looking forward to returning next year.

The pool area is stunning with plenty of sunbeds for all, even went swimming!! The view is something that takes my breath away, day and night. I would highly recommend this to all. Looking forward to next year already. Jan T, Gower

This area is set on the edge of the village of Puente Don Manuel/Peunte de Salia, amongst the hills and olive groves of Andalucia, with a backdrop of the Sierra Tejada Mountains. Views across to the other side of Lake Vinuela towards the mountain top village of Camares. There are beautiful walks around the lake which can offer non-motorised water sports and fishing. A short ride to the village of Alcaucin will give access to the fascinating local natural park. This area is a couple of minutes away from a main road network which can give fast and easy access to Granada, Malaga, Seville. The property is 15 minutes from the coast town of Torre Del Mar, 40 minutes from Nerja, 60 minutes from Malaga airport and 90 minutes from Granada airport.

There are many local markets, which can be visited most days of the week. A short drive will take you to the site of an old castle, and a little further to the hot springs where you can bath in the hot water coming out of the rocks.

Other Activities: Bird watching, water park
