the villa lived up to our expectations and more. Punta Lara is great if you want a chilled out holiday. The snack bar (Miguel's) by the shared pool (a 50 second walk) serves fab food at a very reasonable prices. " euro 20 cents gets you a bottle of San Miguel and a large wine - you can't argue with that. The pool is great and wasn't busy - Mario the attendant is a cracking guy. There is a restaurant (El Oasis) next door to the pool and a bar just up the steps. The Avalon restaurant/B&B is really nice if you want to try something a bit more upmarket.
A 5 minute walk gets you onto the beach where there are some fab chiringuitos (beach bars/restaurants) that are well worth a visit. A walk into Nerja will take about 25 mins along the beach.
Nerja is a lovely town and has so much to offer without being tacky in any way. Spanish people holiday here and there is a great mix of nationalities who holiday in the area.
The villa has all the amenities you would want and the photos don't do it justice. The roof balcony measures around 7 x 4 metres and offers fab views of the sea and mountains. It's a real sun trap and offers great privacy.
I should have made an effort yo leave a little bit more information to supplement the useful info folder left for holiday makers, especially about local markets, which would be useful for the next time we visit.
The pluses of the villa are plentiful, which meant that I relaxed into the holiday faster than any other I've been on. I have thought a lot about what the minuses are and could only think of 2 things - the internet connection (but bear in mind Spain isn't blessed with the quality of broadband we're used to in the UK) and maybe the sunbed and 2-seater chair on the roof terrace could do with a bit of tlc. That's it, and it was a struggle to think negatively about #44.
I know that I'll want to go back despite the world being such a big place and offering all sorts of different opportunities. Best foreign holiday for me to date and the villa had so much to contribute to it. Back to work tomorrow!!
