“Beautiful and secluded for peace and tranquility”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I have just returned from 2 weeks at this amazing villa. It is absolutely stunning and the views are heaven. We travelled with another family so there was eight of us in total. The villa is a lovely size and has a really good size pool for all eight of us to get in at the same time and plenty of room. It is equipted with everything you will need. Jenny and Phillip are very helpful if you need them. My one problem and the reason I didn't give five stars is the drive up the dirt track from the main road. It is very bendy with sharp bends and very narrow with sheer drops. Thankfully we had a big 9 seater van and my husband and the other driver got used it quite quickly but if you are faint hearted then it's not great. I struggled quite badly (the only one in the group) has I have a fear of heights but I didn't let it spoil my holiday and just stayed in the back on the inside. I think the pool could do with a cover has every morning it was full of insects and the two men had to clear it every day before anyone could get in which was a bit time consuming. Other than these two things I have said it really is the most beautiful villa in a beautiful area of Spain.

Many thanks for your review. We are very happy you all enjoyed your stay at this fabulous villa set in the total seclusion the Mountains of Malaga with its stunning views. By its very location the route to the villa is along the side of the mountain which as you noted the other members of your party adapted to very quickly.
The insects learning to swim in the pool is not usually a problem as the skimmer sorts them out. There has been virtually no rain since last summer so there is a desperate shortage of water with the pool level being a little low to enable the skimmer to work efficiently.
We look forward to seeing you again in this beautiful part of Spain.

“Absolute Peace and Tranquility”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at this Villa for a week in July. The villa is absolutely perfect if you want a large villa and a reasonable sized swimming pool, well equipped and plenty of room. We were blessed with fantastic weather the whole week as you would expect in Spain in the middle of July. The villa stands on its own with the nearest neighbour about a half mile away.Fantastic views of hills and valleys. The villa has its own olive, lemon and orange trees and the fruit you can pick direct from the tree. Ample size kitchen, outside dining and breakfast table to watch the sun rise if you are up that early. Barbeque and plenty of space around the pool. Now for the drawback, this drive to the villa from the main road is along dirt tracks for about 2.5 - 3 kms with sheer drops and blind curves not for the faint hearted. You need at least a 2.0 litre car or a four wheel drive not the Fiat Punto 998cc that we had.We would definitely return.

Very many thanks for your lovely review. We also love the valley with its seclusion and are thrilled you enjoyed it as well. We look forward to seeing the three generations of your family again. We agree the "country road" is better suited to a larger car but you get used to it very quickly.
