About the Owner

We live with our daughter in Nottingham and make regular visits to our apartment in Spain where we have made many friends. We love the Spanish way of life, culture and the food and obviously the climate which offers sun for most of the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Superb apartment,great views of mountains,lovely beaches,the village is known for its free tapas! Visit to the Alhambra is a must. Certainly stay here again, Mr Paul Gidley, Nottingham.

My girlfriend and her family had a fantastic time in Andalucia.The apartment is very good,well located. I would definitely recommend a couple of restaurants down on the front in Salobrena good service and food with excellent sea food. I also drove along the cost to La Heradura which is a pretty and tranquil beach side setting. I drove up into Pampaneira in the Western Sierra Nevada which is beautiful with white washed houses,a pretty square and decent local craft shops,the views driving up there are fantastic. An excellent week. Many thanks again for renting us the place. Kind regards, Simon.

A belated thank you for the "loan" of you apartment, which was fantastic.

Fantastic property in a great Spanish location

  • 5 of 5

My young family and I travelled to Velez in August 2016. All communication and advice prior to our holiday was seamless, we were given accurate directions and details of who would be meeting us at the Townhouse.

The location of the property is fantastic. The village of Velez is very accessible however gives a feel of being in rural Spain within an authentic Andalucian village. There are a number of bars in the village where we visited for drinks and breakfasts. We even used the playpark in the village to occupy our little ones for a short while. We visited the coast on a few occasions which was around a 15 minute drive.

The townhouse itself was immaculate, we were also surprised at just how spacious the rooms and living areas were. On the ground floor is a master with gorgeous en suite. The middle floor has kitchen and lounge in addition to 2 other spacious bedrooms and bathroom with shower.

This townhouse has 2 terraces, a hot tub and plenty of furniture/sunbeds. The views around the village and landscape beyond were incredible.

There is a communal pool which was very quiet during our stay. It was perfect to cool off and very clean. The owners of this complex obviously take great care of their homes and communal living areas.

It was an absolute pleasure to stay here and we have ranted to our family and friends over and over. We would love to return again, without question.

Thanks once again for the perfect summer break.

We love this area for its proximity to the coast with great beaches while still enjoying the authenticity of a typical Andalucian village. If you want activities you can be skiing in the Sierra Nevada within an hour & golf enthusiasts have a good choice of courses within 1/2 an hour from the apartment.
