We found the villa surprisingly easily with the instructions given. We were met by Carol who gave us a guided tour and explained everything thoroughly, we could contact her at anytime which we did when needed to find a pharmacy for my son,nothing was too much trouble.
There was a fabulous welcome pack including red & white wine, beer, butter,bread,milk,water, ham, bacon, cheese, and 40 euros for electric which was more than sufficient.
There were so many things from a well equipped Kitchen, all you needed for the beach i.e parasol,chairs,cool box down to needle and thread,and so many other things too many to mention that made it so perfect.
It was a very quiet residential area so it was wonderfully peaceful , a huge difference from the usual package holiday we are used to which was great. Shops were a 5 minute drive and you could find everything you needed. There were also a selection of small bars/restaurants near by.
We did go to a few of the smaller beaches which were lovely and easy to find, but we loved Puerto Mazarron, the beach although busy not a problem finding a spot. My son loved the huge inflatable water slides in the sea, 9 euros for the whole day, and with wristband you could come and go. Absolutely brilliant to get a little sunbathing time . A must for families with children.
We ate a few times in the Port it was a lovely area and lots going on. We particularly enjoyed a restaurant called Viggos.
We would like to return and visit aIl the beaches we missed. It was an added bonus having the equipment for the beach, the parasol was much needed for a little occasional shade from the 36 degree sunshine which was fantastic.
We did spend a lot of our time at the villa just because it was so perfect and you just really didn't need to go anywhere , we enjoyed the peace to be honest, we went for a rest and that is exactly what we got. Didn't even mind using the BBQ , it was lovely to eat either in the shaded area by the pool or on the porch overlooking the pool.
I did say before I went that I would not be using the washing machine, though I found it great for washing towels after the beach/pool it really wasn't a chore.
In the bathrooms were little goody bowls with extras in case you had forgotten anything, it's all these little touches that help make the place so special and well thought out.
All I can say is that we will definitely go back, and maybe do a little more exploring....or maybe just stay by pool.
Thank you so much.
