We are 4 ladies just returned from this property having just spent 9 days there and already cannot wait to return. It,s true the photos cannot do it justice. Peaceful, tranquil, clean, lots of space in and around the villa and those spectacular views... lovely restaurants serving lovely food. Recommend Chaca restaurant for it's steaks just 5 mins by car. Easy access to towns, villages, beaches and shops because of the great roads and motorways. Villa has everything you need, very well equipped. Just one little tip Bruce..could you get a better tin opener cos we struggled with the old fashioned one haha. We found everyone so friendly out there where ever we went. Bruce & Gunilla the owners are two very lovely people who are on hand very quickly should you need them, and not forgetting the lovely Dave for chauffering us for a couple of nights out. Thanking you so much Bruce for making this one of the best holidays we have had. Please let us know how mum & kitties are doing we miss them very much. Debbie, Tracey, Tam & Elaine.

"Absolutely fantastic villa with stunning views - Perfect!"
We stayed at Las Golondrinas in mid Sept 2011 for 10 days. We were in need of a totally relaxing chilled out holiday to rest and unwind and that is exactly what we got. As soon as you arrive at the villa, the stunning views just take your breath away and then to have the luxury of this amazing villa just makes this a perfect place to go to escape and chill out. Like other guests before us, we also found it difficult to leave the villa as it does indeed have everything you need to enjoy peace and tranquillity. The kitchen and dining area is fabulous and so big that it is a sheer joy to rustle up your favourite meals whist enjoying a glass of wine or a beer and looking out at the amazing surroundings.
In regards to previous posts about the pool, we found the pool to be clean and tidy and so therefore can confirm to future guests that the problem with the pool has definitely been resolved and we were in the pool every day.
Bruce who is your host is on hand for anything you might need or any questions and we would very much like to thank him for all his help and advice and for allowing us a small slice of paradise in his beautiful villa. Definitely returned home totally relaxed and chilled out and hope to return again one day soon.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and for confirming that the house is as good as in the pictures and the description. We are so glad you both enjoyed your time here, that's what it is all about! Looking forward to seeing you again soon :)

"Beautiful villa with stunning views"
We have just returned from an 8 night stay in this beautiful villa. It really is a home from home, with great living space both inside and outside. The kitchen diner is fantastic. In fact, we found it very difficult to leave the villa as it had everything you need for a relaxing break. Usually takes a couple of days to wind down, but with a glass of wine sat on the patio overlooking the lake and mountains, relaxation was instant! Difficult to describe the views. You have to be there to truly appreciate them. Stunning!
The villa is in a very private location off the beaten track. Would stongly recommend a car (4 x 4). There are some lovely villages nearby with a good restaurants. The coast is a 10 minute drive away as is the main supermarkets in Velez Malaga. the villa is ideally situated as a base for exploring both inland and coastal areas of the costa del sol.
The only blott on our stay was the pool. It was not full and poorly maintained. Admittedly, it was very hot whilst we were there, but it was clear the pool had been neglected for some time. As a couple, we used it, but had we had young children with us, we would not have let them use it. This, I am sure, is easily rectifiable, but it does need attention.
Overall, we had a fabulous time and will definitely return for a longer stay.
I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay, and I appreciate your review very much.
Unfortunately I was away for two weeks and during this time the pump for the main water supply broke down. It was replaced within hours, but inadvertently the pump for the swimmingpool was switched off and it wasn't dealt with until I got back. Normally the pool is crystal clear.
It is indeed recommended to have a car during your stay as the villa is secluded, but 99 % of the guests just rent a normal, small rental car and can get around without problems, I wouldn't say a 4 x 4 is necessary (my car is a Renault Espace).

"Peace, views, pool and fun...what more do you need??"
We stayed at Las Golondrinas in early August 2011. We were met by Bruce who led us to the villa from our agreed meeting point. It's a little tricky to get to and takes a bit of getting used to as… More
We were grateful for the constructive feedback! We are looking into upgrading the mattresses so future guests can enjoy all the villa has to offer after an even better nights sleep.

"Very peaceful...superb views....beautiful !!!"
Absolutely fantastic villa with beautiful views across Lake Vinuela.
So many places of interest to visit too.
A car is needed to get out and about. However due to circumstances beyond my control, i traveled alone with my 3 children. Bruce the owner was very helpful and arranged transfers and suggested ways of getting out and about xx
I fell in love with this villa and hope to return in the near future x
I would recommend if you want somewhere peaceful and relaxing to chill but can visit places of interest within a short car journey.
The villa is even nicer than the pictures you see on the internet , with every home comfort that you can imagine x
