Mooi ligging! Prachtige zichten. Alles was aanwezig. Grote tuin! Ideaal voor honden! Goede uitvalsbasis voor wandelingen!
Lovely villa, located a few kilometers north of Frigiliana in the countryside. Very suited for an escape from the hectic life back home. The weather being great in southern Spain, we loved being outside. There is ample space on the property, a swimming pool, a BBQ, a porch, ... The villa/garden is maintained very well and we enjoyed it very much.
Nestled in the hills above Frigiliana this a great villa.
Great help from Biz who guides you the last kilometre to the villa and settles you in.
Villa is very well equipped and spacious with a nice pool and well maintained grounds.
The owner Pepe is also very helpful and takes a great pride in the villa.
It's close to the town of Frigiliana which has many nice restaurants and a pretty old town.
We have just returned from a fabulous relaxing holiday at Villa Marta. You couldn't ask for anything more from a holiday rental, from the first enquiry contact to leaving for home, Boz and Polly have been exceptionally helpful from the start. The villa was spotless and very spacious, the setting is stunning as is the outside space with its fruit trees and beautiful flowers.
Lazy days by the pool and evenings spent on the spacious veranda. Frigiliana has lovely restaurants but if you didn't want to eat out the kitchen was well equipped for home cooking.
Pepe the owner is understandably very proud of his Villa and gardens, and loved showing the different flowers and plants to my husband who is also a garden lover.
We are already talking about our next visit.
Thank you Polly and Boz for all you did, it was so nice.

Having stayed here two years ago, we felt as we had returned home, the villa as always was spotlessly clean as are the surrounding gardens and bbq area; there was a welcome pack and a nice note from Pepe welcoming us again.
Pepe came round to tend to the gardens and ensure that everything was ok.
Once ahain thank you Boz and Polly for all your help and assisitance during the booking process
