Fantastic location for a relaxing break!

  • 5 of 5

I booked a two week stay for myself, partner and our 2 year old daughter in July. The location is perfect for anyone wanting a relaxing break and the opportunity to experience a real Spanish holiday. We found everything easy to access, there are some really beautiful beaches just a 10 minute drive away from the property. The on complex swimming pool was perfect for us and our daughter, it is totally family friendly. Very central to a number of local towns, lots of local markets, restaurants and a waterpark located next to the supermarket which was fantastic when we wanted to take our daughter! The property itself we found very comfortable and well equipped, the property was very clean, well presented and maintained throughout. Overall we had a fantastic stay and would definitely return here for another holiday.

Lovely,comfortable villa in a beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to a warm welcome from Sandy the housekeeper ,she made sure we had essentials on arrival ,showed us around the villa.Set in a gated complex with a shared pool ,never too busy even in August! Nice sun terrace on first floor and a terrace on the lower floor with a lovely garden.A car is essential to keep teenagers happy as the beach is in walking distance but about 15 mins away on foot.Plenty of shops and decent supermarkets within driving distance 5 mins in a car.Great beach bar called bbme went down well for the kids lovely staff free sun loungers and wi fi with lovely food. Highly recommend this location as not over run by tourists! Don't be shocked by the nudist beach pretty discreet !Main towns nearby great little markets especially in vera old town. All in all a nice place will definately go again (minus teenagers !)

Very happy with our stay

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with our stay. We were a family of 6 so the 3 bedroomed property was perfect for our requirements (you would require a car). Carl (and Sandy in Spain) couldn't have been more accommodating and we found Carl's recommendations really helpful- thank you :)

muy contentos

  • 5 of 5

Fuimos 3 personas, la casa esta muy bien además de limpia y zona muy tranquila, si buscas relax lo encontraras. Es necesario coche para todo ya que no hay nada cerca, pero tienes mercadona a 3mins en coche y la zona nudista a 5mins, las piscinas son geniales. Como pega lo que tardan en hacerte la devolución de la fianza "mas de 2 semanas" te dejan solo 1 toalla por persona y que la casa esta al lado de una carretera y otro bloque de chalets que aunque no tiene ruido te ven todo. Pero seguro que volveremos
