"Absolutely fabulous"

This property is absolutely fabulous. Tucked away on a mountain side overlooking the villages and the sea beyond, it was tranquil and a real 'get away from it all' holiday. Whilst there are neighbours you were not really aware of them and it was so peaceful. We spent most of our time on the large patio area under the umbrella and in the pool as it was very hot but wouldnt have wanted it any different! The pool was great fun and just right to dip in and out of morning, noon and night! The villa is nicely furnished as you would expect, fully equipped, plenty of towels and extra linen, and we always ate alfresco using the dining area which leads onto the patio. Fantastic to watch the evening lights twinkling below with a nice glass of chilled wine!

Whilst the property does not have aircon, we found that the fans were adequate and allowed us to sleep at night. There is a good shopping centre not far away (about 10 km), and local shops just down the mountain in the village of Sayalonga (1km). The local beaches are also not far away, but you do need a car.

Charlie and Rita, who look after the villa, were lovely and made sure the villa was as it should be and nothing was too much trouble, Thank you. We will definitely come back!

"Amazing location and breath taking views"

The local area is fantastic - breath taking mountains, amazing sea views and the nearby towns of Sayalonga and Competa are beautiful Spanish / Moorish style towns with good restaurants and a few shops. Amentities such as larger supermarkets, the coast etc are literally at the foot of the mountain, just a short drive down a very steep winding road. The beaches were extensive, stretching for miles and empty. An excellent restaurant perched on the mountain top is walkable from the villa and the views over the mountains to the coast, with the gentle sound of bells from the goat and the herder on the hillside, drifting on the breeze was magical. I was surprised generally how reasonable meals out were in the area (circa E12) and local drinks were extremely cheap. (Circa E1.5 max for a beer or glass of wine) The local wine, also very cheap, was lovely, no rough plonk ! Lively and clubbing - not at all ! But lots of interesting places to visit, good food and wine all readily available.

The villa itself has lovely outside space, the pool area and terrace looking out over the coast both having truly beautiful views. The binoculars in the villa were an excellent idea.

The only downside is that the villa interior was a little tired - but immaculately clean. The waterproof sheets on the beds weren't nice in the heat and I would assert cotton protectors would be more appropriate. I suspect the house had experienced a leak on th rear wall and as such the twin room and several kitchen cupboards were so damp / stagnant smelling they were unusable.

That said, the weather was lovely and the outside area spacious and lovely - so there was little cause to be inside !

The bathroom was newly refurbished and immaculate and the villa as a whole was very well equipped. The owner was helpful and the fridge full of essentials on arrival was most welcome. Sort out whatever was making that damp smell and this would be a perfect spot. If that were fixed, I'd go again.

The problems mentioned in this review were due to a burst pipe and have now been rectified. The damaged units have been replaced and a new oven, gas hob and all worktops have been replaced.
