Leonard was particularly helpful as he collected us from the airport, took us to Mercadona a large supermarket in Torre Del Marr so we could stock up on essentials for our stay and then took us to the villa. The pool was maintained during our stay and we enjoyed some drinks with Leonard and Anne's one late afternoon in the Spanish Bar.
We booked a couples 2 week Holiday for late January, early February as this is the cooler months. The weather was warm and pleasant in the daytime but cold when the sun went down. Would recommend a jumper and coat. Definatly not pool weather though - recommend later in the year if you fancy a dip in the pool.
We found the villa had lots of space and would be great for a family or group of friends.
The villa is Conveniently Located in Puente Don Manuel. Close to a great bar called Attila which is a short stroll away- they offer a friendly welcome, good food and entertainment. There's an Indian Taj Mahal close by and two small bars.
A Spanish Bar/restaurant is a further 5 minutes walk away which offers nice food, good selection of drinks and a friendly welcome. Lots of Ex pats here living amongst the Spanish which make it a really friendly place to stay and make friends.
Local shops are a 15/20 minute walk away and consists of two convenience store's, Arkwright's that sells everything, a butchers, Bakers - they provide frozen "Sin Free" = Gluten Free small baguettes, just ask for sin free.
Also More pubs for lovely tapas and a fish n chip shop, Indian called Indian Palace and Chinese.
Tried both Indians, both good however I preferred Indian Palace for its spiciness although they did rush our courses.
* Lots of nice walks to be had in this area, the old town of Vinuella, further up the road is the beautiful lake vinuella.
*The beach of Torre del Marr a 15/20 minute's drive away- beautiful coastline. Supermarkets to stock up on essentials.
* There is a Bus service which is really cheap to get to Torre Del Marr but only runs three times a day so check the timings and buy your return ticket (which is a timed ticket when you arrive at the bus station)
Recommend El Horno Italian Pizza/Past restaurant who offer "Sin Free" = Gluten Free 8" Pizza which is amazing.
Very nice stay thank you :)
