“Great house, helpful hosts - a pleasure”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a lovely stay at La Gavia mid-July 2015. Looking forward to returning in future.

Francesca was friendly and efficient when we made our booking, and sent through helpful information to plan our stay. We found the house easily and were shown around by Maria and David. We soon settled in and the kids were in the pool within minutes! The weather was hot, but the house remained cool during the day, boosted by the effective air conditioning. The evenings were long and balmy - perfect for several barbeques. Best of all, it was mosquito and insect-free. The house is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay including wifi, play areas and plenty of toys. There were hundreds of oranges, lemons, peppers, tomatoes and other fruits to pick, and David's shop is two minutes walk away for most other provisions. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. None of us knew any Spanish, but conversations were easy with the help of Google Translate and enthusiasm.

Alora is a good base for exploring the Malaga province with easy day trips to the coast, Ronda, the lakes, El Chorro and numerous white villages. There is plenty to do. The town has all the facilities you need, including great bars, restaurants and a well-stocked supermarket.

We had a great time and were sad to leave. Back soon!

I can't praise Francesca, Davide and their parents enough for making our stay perfect. We were made to feel very welcome despite the language barrier and were thoroughly looked after throughout our stay.

We really enjoyed having the villa as our base, as my friend and I were climbing during the day in El Chorro and my boyfriend went out cycling it was lovely to have a well equipped and comfortable base to return to. We made dinner each evening and sat at the table on the porch listening to the crickets and watching the geckos with the mountains in the distance. Bliss!

The villa is very neat, tidy and clean and boasts a swimming pool, as well as various areas to either catch the sun or relax in the shade throughout the day including a charming courtyard where we breakfasted. But the main event and the real touch of rustic perfection is the orange grove which we gleefully picked and squeezed oranges daily for our breakfast.

Alora can be seen from the property and is a short drive from the villa where a supermarket provides all your food needs and the various shops and cafes are a joy to explore. Upon arrival we were shown where everything was including an abundance of playthings for any children we may have, beach accessories and laundry facilities, even the wifi router. Although we didn't have any children with us the villa boasts lots of swings, a sandpit and toys for kids, as well as being very safe and secure with a high gate and locking door at the entrance to the property.

I tried to think of anything I would change or add to our experience in the property but honestly couldn't think of anything! We look forward to coming back next year if possible.
