We stayed here for a week this summer in a mini heatwave and everything about it was lovely. The villa has everything you need, the surrounding are and towns are all beautiful and the on hand help was fantastic. The pool was a god send in the heat and we made the most of it. The villa is extremely clean and comfortable and we would recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful villa - Perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 4 friends in this truly lovely Villa for 2-weeks this summer and had a fantastic experience. Louise and Steve – the villa managers met us and showed us around it had everything we required and more... The pool was fantastic and much bigger than we envisaged. The villa looked even more impressive than the photos showed and it was very well maintained and clean throughout. The location was quite beautiful and quiet and the view was spectacular of the village churches lit up on an evening. We made great use of the local shops and enjoyed some wonderful tapas especially sat opposite the impressive Spanish church in the town. Louise the villa manager was on hand to help with any issues – which wasn’t required – but was a comfort to know someone was there if we needed any help or advice. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa. We cannot wait to return next year – thank you for the perfect holiday!! Sept 2015.
