We found this place to be just what was advertised and exactly what we needed. Just close enough to the beach to be a great day out and far enough into the back country to ensure you get peace and often a wonderful breeze. The pool is a great relief in the heat of the day. Definitely going again.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped. We arrived late evening and were met with a welcome drink, in the fridge was fresh milk, butter, bread, jam, Quince jelly. There were tea bags, coffee, sugar. Everything we needed until we could go to the nearest town the next day. The complex is in peaceful, relaxing countryside, surrounded with almond... More

We cannot praise La Estrella enough! We stayed for 2.5 weeks with our two kids - 7 and 11 yrs, and had a fantastic time. Our apartment was immaculately clean and provided everything that we needed for our stay, including a supply of beautifully laundered towels. There was ample space, with 2 double bedrooms, a lounge / dining room, a... More

A welcome pack was available on our arrival. The apartment was split level (mezzanine). The description on the web site led me to believe there were views to be seen from the Apt. This was not the case as there was nothing at all visible from the lounge just 4 walls which made it quite dark. A view was available... More

Friendly, helpful and professional hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble. Basic, good quality groceries were provided which were most welcome after a long journey. Immaculately clean and cared-for apartments in tranquil countryside, great for bird-watchers and nature lovers yet only minutes from the Autovia del Mediterraneo and a short car ride from the nearest town. We would love... More

A great welcome and a great apartment(mini house!) in breathtaking scenery but still near everything. A welcome pack--bread butter etc was supplied too. They even have a little bar and sell ice cream. Swim pool-- kids games and adults if you like! Peaceful and quiet---Brill--def. go back!

Was made very welcome on arrival, self catering but there were eggs, milk, jams, breads crossaints etc as well as a selection of drinks, unexpected but most welcome.

Super for the couple of days , when you want to relax from noisy towns. It is not so far from highway to this quiet place. Nice swimming pool - ideal for children with parents.
