5 Star - Highly Recommended
Just back from the most amazing holiday at this gorgeous villa. The standard of quality in the furnishings, décor and cleanliness was exceptional. Everything we needed was catered for and we all had a very comfortable stay. The villa is very private and situated near the top of a mountain, where the views are breath taking. The garden grounds where much bigger than we anticipated and there is lots of seating areas and viewpoints. Plenty of restaurants and shops can be found in Turre but a car is a must (12mins drive). We had some great days out at ideal family locations like the water park, go cart racing, crazy golf, wild western parks and the beach, all between 20-50 mins drive from the villa (if you decide to visit only one of the western parks Oasys would be our recommendation). All of these had a attractions had a lovely relaxed atmosphere and were far less populated by tourists than we expected. This seemed to be mainly a Spanish holiday destination (this means good value can be expected rather than paying over the top tourist prices). The Airport in Almeria was approx. 50 mins drive by motorway and easy to find. It is a small airport and only takes a few minutes to pass through security, passport control etc. The management company responsible for the villa are extremely helpful & friendly. They even organised a taxi to bring 7 of us to the local restaurant and home again!! They also sell tickets to some of the local theme parks. We highly recommend this villa to all considering it. If you want a true Spanish holiday experience blended with luxury you won’t be disappointed.
