Before I even start commenting how amazing the villa/ holiday was I must start in saying how brilliant the pre-service was, nothing seemed too much trouble and Karen was always answering any questions we had, or providing advice which was great seeming we had a little one.
The villa, lake and surrounding area are beautiful 'proper Spain' - being surrounding by mountains, valleys, quaint villages and the bluest lake I've seen was 'well words can't describe.'
Karen's dad 'Ray' lives next door and is always on hand or popping up to see how you are, whilst bringing wine.
The villa is great - its perfect for a family holiday, our little one was 14 months and it was great for her.
If you're thinking about booking this villa, don't - bloody book it !!!!
I'm more than happy if you want to email me to find out any thing more on firstname.lastname@example.org but trust me you won't be disappointed in this place.
We had a wonderful stay at this villa and miss the views already! Everything you need is here with all the comforts of home. There is plenty of outside space and the pool provides welcome relief from the sun. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area with lovely mountain villages and Malaga and the coast not far away. You will definitely need a car to get about but the peace and quiet is well worth it. The hosts were friendly and contactable at all times. We would recommend this villa.
This is the 2nd time we have been to the villa because it has everything you could ever want. Beautifully and tastefully decorated with the most wonderful views of the lake every day. Clear instructions were given for directions and as the owner's father lives next door it was an added bonus if you required any advice about the local area. Cannot fault this place for it's beauty and tranquility. Thank you
Our 3rd stay at the villa and once again it met all our expectations and more. Everything you could want and the usual friendly welcome for Ray. We will never get tired of the view and cannot wait to return.
A clean, well kept villa with a lovely pool and great views. The villa is just as described, and has all we needed for a relaxing holiday. The pool is ideal for children, not too deep, and adults too. It's in a quiet location, so a hire car is necessary, but plenty to do and see within a short drive. We went to Nerja and Malaga, both about 45 minutes away and are well worth a trip. We also went to Seville, just over 2 hours away, and stopped overnight. Velez Malaga is also nearby and worth a visit for a wander and lunch.
Torre del Mar is a nearby lively seaside town, Padre Pio and Safari Lounge were the best restaurants here, at the beach end of the pedestrianised street.
Ray, the owners father, gave a really nice welcome, and made sure we had all we needed, and kept the pool topped up! Karen, the owner, was quick to answer our questions and organise the booking.
If you want a lovely villa for a family holiday, this is ideal.
A beautifully appointed villa with a stunning view. The pool was heated to a very comfortable temperature which was much appreciated as it was unseasonably cool while we were there. The owner's Dad, Ray, was very helpful and provided good local advice.
We have been in a number of holiday villas in Spain and the USA and we would definitely return to this one.
Our young family (me, wife, two kids (2 and 6m)) had a great stay here. Superb location inland giving you the away from it all feel.
Villa is excellent - spacious and well maintained with all the facilities you need for a break with the kids.
Karen and Ray were really helpful and ensured that we were well looked after during our time there.
