    "Spanish Surprise"

    My first visit to Spain and certainly not my last but my return will be to El Chopo Banda, without a doubt. The lovely building is located in such a beautiful area which we explored on foot and felt no need to go much further afield (though we did and loved it all). The property was clean and had every comfort and enough space to happily accommodate our party which included five adults and three children - all of whom enjoyed the pool (warm, even though the weather wasn't particularly hot), the garden and the barbeque area. Definitely recommended and a big thank you to the owners who are friendly and helpful over the telephone and to their managers who so well look after the property and needs of those of us on holiday. Having run holiday accommodation myself, I appreciate the thought and hard work that has gone into this lovely holiday home. Looking forward to our next visit!

    Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, families with young children and romantic getaway
