Lovely villa with pool in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a fantastic spot, it's lovely at night time when all you can hear are the crickets. During the day we didn't hear much except birds singing, the occasional car and goat bells. The pool was great - especially in the hot weather! Villa was lovely and clean, plenty of spare towels and bedding and well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge. The surrounding countryside and views are breathtaking. We will definitely recommend it to friends and family and we certainly hope to visit again!

Lovely Villa

  • 4 of 5

We spent a lovely 2 weeks at the villa. The villa was spotless when we arrived with a very handy welcome pack supplied! There were also lots of extra food items available in the kitchen cupboards. The kitchen was very well equipped. We had a few days out but the majority of the holiday was spent lazing by the pool enjoying the scenery and the peace and quiet. The owner, Gail, was very helpful with providing any information in the lead up to our holiday. Would definitely recommend the villa to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing holiday.

Great holidays

  • 5 of 5

We, Helene, the kids and Patrice, did spend a great time here at Las Encinas.

The location is perfect if one needs to rest and to enjoy the climate, the pool, the very nice restaurant at Los Venturros just 2 kilometers away, the kindness of Andalusian people, the surrounding nature...

The villa is very nice with everything required to keep one or two family happy for the time spent there.

The kids were always relunctant to leave the place for visits of the surroundings and the beautiful Andalousia in general.

And, so important, Gail is certainly one of the most honest and kind person I had to deal with.

She is perfectly straight and arranging.

She will definitely take care about your stay there to be great.

If we have to return around the area, we will contact Gail for sure.

So this is the perfect location to rest and forget all worries.
