Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

As other guests have said, the views from the villa are simply breathtaking.

The villa is spacious and airy. it is nicely furnished and the kitchen is very well equipped.

The outside area allows the best of both worlds; the veranda provides shade throughout the day, whilst the pool and patio area have sun, sun, sun!

My parnter Mark and I booked this villa for my 50th birthday. On arrival there was a birthday card and a bottle of fizz to help me celebrate - a very kind and thoughtful gesture.

The neighbours (on each side) were absolutely wonderful. They were very kind, thoughtful and we really can't thank Gary enough for being so very helpful.

We have been to the area several times before and so went to our favourite restuarants; El Charco (Miguel's) where i had the best fillet steak ever!!, and we went to Chez Spice several times, great indian food.

The track leading up to the villa is steep and twisty, if we were to come again we would definitely get a 4x4.

The most amazing views I've ever seen!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Pacifico last autumn with some friends. We were blown away by the views! They are truly breathtaking! The house is situated in a quiet and rural location overlooking, in every direction, at either mountains, hills, meadows and of course the lake. The scenery is constantly changing throughout the day. At dusk, the mountain is to me the most dramatic because of the shadows made by the setting sun. Even at night with the villages lit up all around, the scenery is gorgeous. We found the house was clean, spacious and very well equipped. You will need a car to get around but we found there were many places to eat, drink and shop nearby. I recommend the Indian restaurant! We hope to return to Villa Pacifico during the summer and this time bring my parents who would absolutely love it!

Highly Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

One star given for the view, which is lovely.

We arrived on Saturday and only stayed in this Villa for one night. On arrival l was very surprised as the Villa looked tired and not as nearly prestige as pictured. Weeds were growing and the plants in all of the plant pots were dead. The ad describes the Villa as furnished to a high standard, l disagree the furniture is old and tired looking, the leather sofa felt sticky as if it had never been wiped down. The shower cubicle upstairs was dirty and the shower curtain down stairs had mould all around the bottom. As we had paid for the Villa in full we decided to sick it out. However on the first night (Saturday) the power tripped so we had no electric as it kept on tripping, this was fixed the next day although we could not put the exterior lights on as it was this that was tripping the electric, Sunday the down stairs toilet wouldn't flush so we had to inform them to get a plumber out to which we were informed the usual plumber was not available as he had just had a operation so we would have to wait until Monday. Our holiday turned into a nightmare. Damp was present to which the owner said that the Villa hadn't any damp but l assure you damp was present around the front door and the paint was coming off the wall in the hallway to which the cleaner had said they had a leak from the bath and hadn't had time to sort it out. We had our family coming out to us on Tuesday with my 7 year old and 6 month old granddaughter's with all of the problems we had we felt that we had no other option but to rent another Villa. When approached the owner denied all of the problems that we had and offered no refund. The start of our holiday had been totally ruined. lf you would like a relaxing fault free holiday with good customer service l would highly recommend that you look else where....

Owner's Response: We deeply regret your negative and upsetting review of our property and are somewhat dismayed and confused. Especially as a previous review was written by guests who stayed just prior to your arrival. In addition, there are several other reviews written by guests who have stayed at the villa, some more than once, and none of which have mentioned anything regarding the issues you raised. Despite your complaint we have made a thorough investigation and found nothing to justify the extent of your enormous aggression. We wondered, could this have anything to do with your request upon arrival for a full refund because you had decided to stay with friends instead? If we are mistaken and have been misinformed then we do apologise.

Absolutely amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Booked to stay in the villa for a week with friends, and on arrival all we could say was "wow". The location, as everyone else says, is just stunning and we never got tired of looking at the view the whole week. The photographs of the villa and the view are most definitely accurate and it was a pleasure to stay here. We literally lazed by the pool for most of the week, having siestas in the afternoons, and meals on the terrace in the evenings. We would then stay out looking at the clear sky and listening to the bells from the goats! We would definitely come back and would recommend the villa to any of our friends. We certainly didn't want to come home!

Wonderful property, GORGEOUS views!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this house was simply amazing. The pictures are accurate, and can’t really do justice to the gorgeous views of the lake and mountains. From the start, booking with the owners was simple with fast and convenient communication. Arrival was easily arranged, and when we opened the door we were very happy to discover that everything was just as advertised.

The house has plenty of room, with three bedrooms with double beds (one of which is upstairs) and one bedroom with twin beds. There are three full bathrooms as well, one of which is en suite to the upstairs bedroom. The kitchen is well equipped with all necessary appliances and plenty of utensils, dishes, glassware, cooking implements, etc. Although we were there in May and the temperatures outside were not at the summer peak, we still managed a few minutes each day in the pool and were very happy to have it.

As others have said, the villa offers peace and tranquility with the option of exploring nearby cities and beaches if you wish to do so. But you’ll find yourself tempted to simply spend the day in the sun by the pool, or on the terrace (which will always offer some shade no matter the time of day) with a book and a glass of wine. It really is one of the most incredible views we have ever seen!

A beautiful and relaxing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful villa in an amazing setting. Myself and my husband booked for a two week stay. We really wanted something quiet and away from it all and that's exactly what we got. The only real noise we heard was from the goat herder, his goats and his dogs, who were all really friendly!

There was only only one downside which was that there is literally nowhere within walking distance.

A fabulous place which I would highly recommend.
