Guestbook comments from the owner

The Villa exceeded our expectations with its spacious layout, wonderful pool and courtyard area, its privacy and the surrounding countryside. There are excellent un/commercialised beaches, hilltop villages and mountains all within easy reach. James & Family (June 2013)



We absolutely loved your villa and we were very sad to leave.

We did a few trips around the area but most of the time enjoyed the garden and pool. The kids, when not in the pool were behind the bar making juice cocktails, or playing the games. It was also great to get the kids to wind down to allow them to shower and then watch a movie before bed.

Fantastic Rural Retreat

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish everything about this Villa is 5 star, Angela (owner) makes regular contact prior to the trip with little things like directions from the airport, local amenities, shops and restaurants etc. The friendly Andy and Sara meet and greet you as you enter Albox and escort you to the Villa, they then show you everything you need to know about the Villa and answer any questions you may have about the villa and local area. The Villa itself is beautifully clean and very well appointed, the covered terrace next to the crystal clear pool just makes the villa special. There are chairs and table to dine and a comfortable suite to relax the day and evenings away in total privacy and tranquility. The outside bar with fridge, gas and charcoal BBQs provide all you need for a fantastic holiday. The best recommendation I can give is that we will definitely be back in 2017.

Great holiday in a lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We went to the villa for the last 2 weeks in September and had a wonderful time. It is very well equipped and comfortable but the highlight is the pool area. It is a great mix of sun and shade with a variety of seating and the perfect place for an evening BBQ which we had on a number of occassions. The villa and pool are also largely on the flat so great for people with any mobility issues.

The villa is also well situated to go out and visit the highlights of the area and close to the coast if you fnacy a sea swim of a meal on the beach. Also only 2 hours to Granada which is well other the trip.

The gardens are also lovely and the sunsets from the top of the neighbouring hill is worth the short climb.

I have no hesitation in reccomeding anyone to book this villa.

Idyllic !

  • 5 of 5

From stepping through the door it was evident that this was a home rather than a rental villa. We felt instantly relaxed and excited with the anticipation of the holiday to come.

The welcome pack was thoughtful and varied so much so we didn't venture out until the next day.

Andy and Sara were both welcoming and friendly and couldn't help us enough.

Communication with Angela was both swift and helpful she is a pleasure to deal with.

The biggest review we can give is that we have already booked for next year!!!

An amaing family holiday in this beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had our second holiday in this fantastic villa in August 2016. Having had a great time the previous summer we didn't hesitate to book again. The villa is so well equipt, there is nothing that isn't to hand. Our holiday is centred around the pool and with the outside bar area (with fridge) comfy seats, TV, dining table, BBQ's and grill, our every need throughout the days and evenings were taken care of. We and our 3 young children spent every day in and out of the pool, then played games of table tennis and then back in the pool! The gardens are beautiful and offer several areas to dine 'Al Fresco'. Shops and supermarket are a 5 minute drive away but back at the villa you feel like you're a million miles away. Every evening we walked up through the beautiful gardens to the high hill to watch the sunset. The area is safe quiet and peaceful and we all had the most relaxing and enjoyable time. The owners representatives Andy & Sarah are so warm welcoming and friendly and instatntly make you feel at home!

We really can't speak highly enough of our holidays at this villa and will return without hesitation! It's perfect!!

A very pleasant stay on a great villa.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa as it has the feel of a home rather than a holiday let. The pool is a good size and looked after by Andy (who also does the meet and greet). Andy and his wife are on hand should you need them. My only criticism would be the fact that there are security cameras everywhere. I understand the need for security but you never knew whether or not you were being monitored. That aside this is a great villa and I would definitely go again.

The property is amazing and very spacious

  • 4 of 5

What a fantastic holiday such a lovely property and very well maintained and very clean too.

Andy and Sara were great and very helpful

There was an issue with the pool as it was cloudy (Previous occupants had ignored the pool care rules) but Andy was very quick to sort it out and it was crystal clear in no time.

The kids loved the pool and the ample gardens (lizard hunting) and the sunset was epic every night.

I would definitely re-book

Facilities

From the Owner

This villa is within walking distance from the main market town of Albox and yet it is set in some of the most glorious countryside you could imagine and the villa is probably unique in the fact that it has its own private walks set in some 3.5 acres of private land . and is ideal for bird watching and night star gazing no street lights here

Notes:

  • Outside: The property is fully equipped with outside furniture and BBQ with an array of el fresco cooking facilities the north gardens are large flood light Mediterranean gardens with a large array of plants absolutely magnificent at night time, while the south gardens are more gentle and soothing with its water fall and stream where you can listen to the wildlife, at night is just fantastic. Wander between these gardens and take in the different aromas from the plants this is something quite amazing, pick some fresh oranges, lemons, or peaches, from our orchard, or stroll over to the Eucalyptus Trees during the day and take in some well needed shade or return to the property as it faces North meaning that the large covered porch is refreshingly cool during the hot summer months, time to read a book or take a nap (siesta) before plunging into the 8x4 private pool. Adults/parents of young children should be aware of the dangers of a unsupervised swimming pool. Notes on accommodation: For the comfort of all our guests, the villa operates a strict no smoking no pets policy. Although electricity, water and gas are included in the price, a charge may be made for what we consider is excessive use. Utility Room: Sink washing machine, cupboards, iron ironboard, solid marble work tops, boot stand, cloak room and a pantry. Other: This villa is truly exceptional, it has the space, privacy and facilities to allow you to have a fantastic holiday which ever way you choose. as a party or as a Family or as a couple. Yet within 2 min drive from Albox or a gentle stroll on foot into town.
