We have just returned home from Spain (to a very cold UK!!) having spent a sunny week at this lovely villa. Superbly equipped and very comfortable. All aspects are top quality and we did not want to leave. As soon as we stepped in, we had that “home from home feeling” and there is no doubt that we will return in the future. A credit to Jon the owner who was also very nice to deal with.
Dear John, thank you so much for your generous review. We are so pleased that you had such a wonderful time at the villa and we very much look forward to your next visit. Jon
Come, put your bags down and relax!
This is a well equipped villa with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Communication with John the villa owner was good and Peter who looks after the villa in Spain meets you, takes you there and shows you where everything is. He is located close by and is on hand if you need any information. Reading all of the other reviews at first the road to the villa is a bit scary! But a few times up and down the hill to the town soon gets you used to it. We would definitely return to this beautifully kept property. We tried a few really good places to eat in Torrox town square and also a picture perfect town, Frigliana, which is nearby and well worth a visit. There is a great restaurant there with a roof terrace that overlooks the valley and town, it's a bit pricey but the food is fabulous, it's called 'La Casino'. Pete also gives good directions to the local supermarkets which are nearby.
The choice of outside spaces to sit, dine or sunbathe is fantastic and spacious and the online photographs do not do the villa justice! Go, enjoy, you will not be disappointed!
Lovely villa, stunning and peaceful location, perfectly equipped.
The villa is a fantastic place for a family stay, with a great pool and everything you need in the property. The scenery is stunning and the location provides quiet and peaceful evenings. Within easy reach of the beach, shops and restaurants, it is perfect for a week in the sun.
Wonderfully peaceful and amazing views. Just perfect.
This place certainly ticked all the boxes for us. Great location, private, peaceful and a well appointed villa.
The drive up was challenging but once we had driven it a couple of times it was fine - just had to clock where the passing places were but the road was generally very quiet. There is a real homely feel to the place with lovely furniture throughout the villa, and a much needed aircon system in both bedrooms which were really effective. The bathrooms were of good size with a great walk-in shower in the larger of the two.
A well equipped kitchen with a little larder of 'store cupboard' items meant that cooking was easy without having to fork out for salt, spices, herbs, etc - really useful.
There were plenty of places to sit out and the views from all areas were just stunning. Lovely borders and pots enhanced the place, but as a visitor please do regularly water the wonderful Hibiscus flowers in the pots on the balcony and they will bless you with the most amazing pink and red blooms throughout your stay :)
Thank you, Jon, for all the little extras and the detail to make our stay so pleasant. And a 'thank you' to Pete for meeting up with us and showing us how to get there (definitely required!)
We have plans to return very soon. 😊�
Heather, thank you for your great review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and liked the villa so much. We look forward to your return visit.
Fabulous villa with outstanding views.
A beautiful rural villa found in the mountains reached by a rather challenging drive. On arrival at Torrox we were met by Peter who was there to assist us in finding the villa and also explain the ins and outs we would need to be aware of during our two week stay. I must admit that Jon had already called me when I made the reservation to explain about the villa layout and also to ensure I was aware of the drive up to his property, wonderful service. On arrival we were greeted with own grown oranges and a bottle of red and white wine and an absolutely clean and fresh feel house. Although the water in the pool was a tad cool it was used daily to ensure my fitness regime continued since surgery. Everything that was required was available from 'glasses' to 'binoculars' to view the wonderful scenery and wildlife. We visited many places but owing to our enjoyment of some very local pueblo's and towns did not make it to Granada or Seville but, a return will solve that. There are restaurants in abundance and we found those in Frigiliana to be particularly good. Torrox Costa is a small town a short drive from the villa with a lovely beach front and many differing restaurants.
Margaret and I had a truly wonderful, peaceful and relaxing time in Jon's Spanish home. Thank you so much both to you and Peter for all the hard work put in to ensure your guests are looked after.
Fabulous Villa in Torrox
Stayed here for 10 nights and the Villa was exactly as it was portrayed on the Owners Direct website. It was very comfortable with high quality furniture, appliances and very good quality beds. Plenty of outside terraces with fantastic views. Very peaceful and quiet.
You will require a car to bring up the mountain to the villa, however, after a couple of trips it was less difficult.
Overall, we had a fantastic holiday both at the villa, and in Torrox town, where there a many good restaruants to choose from. John gave us excellent information before we travelled. We would definitely recommend John and Betty's fab villa.
Liam, thank you so much for your very positive comments about your stay at our villa. We are so pleased that you had such a wonderful holiday and thank you for your recommendation. Warmest regards, John and Betty.
