Too expensive for the standard and comfort of the interior but beautiful exterior
We stayed here during the school Summer holidays in 2018. As a result we paid a premium price tag for a week. We really loved the outside area, beautiful views, fabulous pool and gorgeous fruit trees and land around the property. The inside was very clean. However, unfortunately we found the interior not up to our expectations in terms of comfort and quality of fixtures and fittings. The living room and beds are described as ‘comfortable’. The living room sofas felt very hard. It was difficult to get comfortable. The master bedroom and downstairs bedrooms mattresses were the furthest from comfortable I can articulate. We had a lot of bad nights sleep which is really disappointing. The main light in the kitchen didn’t work, the lamp had missing bulbs, there was no space or cupboard for food storage yet a sign on the wall informing us not to leave out food out due to ants, the shower head in the ensuite was very old and didn’t work properly and the TV did not work at all, the channels buffered and you couldn’t watch anything. Had I not paid as much as I did for the week, I might have been more forgiving of some of these shortcomings in comfort and maintenance but am now at home feeling as if I have wasted quite a lot of money. I have explained to the property managers on my return (and indeed let them know of some of the problems whilst I was there). They have apparently relayed my messages to the owner who has refused to give me any money back at all. I stay in many villas and hotels and this has been a very different and disappointing experience.

Beautiful peaceful authentic finca set in fabulous orchards and close to all amenities. We loved the location and outdoor space with its different seating and eating areas. . Pool was lovely.
Hens and guinea fowl calling reminded us of home.
It was a photographer's dream (family of photographers) with every nook and corner beautifully arranged with plants, pots and antiques. Delightful.
Lovely hot water for showers.
Aircon which heated the bedrooms on cold evenings. Yes we needed it!
Despite our list of the improvements which are needed (all very simple things) we would definitely come back to this lovely house which felt more like a home than a rental villa. Please thank the owners for us. The lady kindly gave us a basket of eggs .
There are no instructions on where to find things i.e. wifi code, washing machine instructions (very different to what we have in UK so not obvious how to use properly) rubbish disposal, local amenities, electric trip-switch ( we had a power failure during a storm which took a while to sort), nearest Doctor/hospital? Who to call in an emergency after office hours? This is all essential information for guests new to the country and
the property and not wishing to waste valuable holiday time sorting these issues.
Overordnet et super dejligt sted...men
Rigtig dejligt sted med skønne omgivelser og beliggenhed.
Dog var vi utilfredse med poolen. Vandet var beskidt allerede den dag vi kom, og det blev kun værre som dagene gik. De 3 sidste dage havde vi slet ikke lyst til at gå i vandet.
Der kom ingen og rensede poolen den uge vi boede der
Det var en rigtig kedelig oplevelse på et ellers rigtig dejligt ophold.
