“Lovely, modern apartment with plenty of room for everyone.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in el Atico for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The apartment was well equipped, spotless and very comfortable. The terraces were a real bonus as it was easy to avoid or enjoy the sun at all times. The views to the sea were lovely and eating out there was just perfect. The breezes meant that we didn't need the a/c even in August. The kitchen was v well equipped and the wifi great to have. About a 30 minute walk down to the village which we only managed once, taking the car down most times. Parking in August slightly tricky but off season probably no problem. Village retains a real Spanish feel and has thankfully not been taken over by the tourist trade. It is mainly a holiday destination for Spaniards which was great to see. Lots of water sports at the beach and some good restaurants too. Great food market for fresh fish, meat, fruit and veg. Definitely looking forward to our next visit to La Herradura.

It really was a pleasure to have Jane, Terry, friends and family stay at The Penthouse. So glad you relaxed and enjoyed yourselves, and also that you enjoyed your daily Spanish conversation/lessons with Joana. Thank you forkeeping and leaving the property spotless and we would certainly recommend you to any other property owners.

“A luxurious apartment with amazing views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

This apartment is even better than the photographs! There are lovely restaurants and bars locally but with the fantastic terraces we spent many evenings eating and enjoying the amazing views. The location is also perfect for exploring this area of Spain, with Granada only an 1hrs drive away. Also, don't overlook Malaga especially if you visit in August as the city hosts a livey flamenco festival. A great holiday made even better by this luxurious apartment.

“Great apartment with lovely views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We had a wonderful stay in the penthouse in July this year with our kids aged 7 and 9. The apartment itself was everything we wanted - spacious, clean, cool and modern. Lovely terrace with great views. A very nice shared swimmingpool. We loved our stay and we would absolutely like to come back!

“Home from home, but with a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The apartment has excellent views and has everything you could possibly need for a week or two in the sun. We travelled with a 9 moth old baby, and Nick provided a cot and high chair for us at no extra charge, he even put up an extra blind for us so the 'nursery' was nice and dark and we could get some well needed rest!. Would happily go back and stay again. The apartment was spotless and the service excellent.
