We have been visiting 'Los Banos' for the past twenty years and never managed to find a such a beautiful villa that was truly 5 mins walk to the Spa Pools and restaurants.......it would simply be a crime if we didn't share our discovery of "Casa Hermosa" which is aptly named "The Beautiful House"......
The early signs of winter on the North Norfolk Coast were soon subdued when a quick internet search for two 'Fifty Something's' came across Casa Hermosa.........."It's too good to be true" came the yells from kitchen...."We've been going there twenty years and there is no villa that close"....within twenty minutes we were booked in and looking forward to it immensely.
We arrived late on a Tuesday evening and had arranged (with our hosts Paul and Tina) to be picked up at the airport and were quickly taken to the Villa. Paul and Tina had even arranged for the basics....."Cheese and a nice Red" to ease the late night unpacking!
Casa Hermosa is very well equipped with everything you need, beautifully kept and clean. It is a perfect location for a 'get away from it all' holiday , very private and totally relaxing.
We spent 10 days there catching the 'Autumn Sun' at the fantastic Leana Spa pools....they are so beautiful and can only be described as 'The Fountain of Youth" pool that was made famous in our favourite film.."Cocoon".
As we deliberately didn't want a car Paul even drove us into town the next day for 'Big Shop' to stock up with the bare essentials for a totally switch off break.
The next 10 days were simply bliss.....sun, hot pools, great food and wine, numerous sports biographies read, TV Gold watching 70's and 80's sitcoms that didn't need vulgarity or swearing to make you laugh...bliss.
We ate in most nights but La Teatre restaurant at the spa is fantastic and is the old cinema/music hall that used to serve the three Victorian hotels in the area. There are numerous other restaurants in walking distance to name a few.... El Pariso, La Puerto Grande, Fuente as well as a great Indian in Las Kalendas which which used the villa bikes to grab a takeaway from. There is also a great local pub called 'Bobs Bar' that is very popular and busy with the locals and ex-pats who enjoy the music, quiz nights, charity auctions and bingo that is regularly on offer.
We highly recommend Casa Hermosa and cannot thank the hosts Paul and Tina for making our last bit of sun for 2017 be so special.
We will return time and time again I am sure.
Thanks for making everything so easy and perfect.

Beautiful little villa, if your looking for a quiet holiday this is the villa for you. Up the road is the spa which is lovely for an evening out, food is good and the atmosphere relaxing. The villa has everything you need for a week away, you won’t be disappointed
The villa is located within walking distance of the very popular spa baths with its various treatments, beautiful gardens and lovely cafe. The villa itself is set on a very private plot with lovely gardens, greenery and features. Our son spent hours playing in the pool. Lovely setting in the evenings to enjoy a glass of wine as the lighting around the garden set a beautiful ambience. We really enjoyed our stay.
Just returned from 2 week stay in the beautiful Villa - Casa Hermosa. The villa was perfect for our family and especially loved the walled garden and pool. Very colourful and pretty gardens with fairy lights at night. Pool perfect size to cool off. Terraced area ideal for a bit of shade and for family meals. Villa well equipped, clean and very welcoming. Tina and Paul were lovely hosts making sure we had everything we needed and welcomed us with wine and platter of food after our journey. Will definitely return to the beautiful Casa Hermosa. Area has plenty to do and discovered nearby Indian restaurant which was delicious.
We stayed at the villa for 3 nights as part of an trip from Barcelona to GIbraltar. We were looking for somewhere quiet to stay for a few days and this place certainly fitted the bill. Paul and TIna the owners were very friendly. The local town is very quiet but shops and restaurants are a short drive away in Fortuna. The villa has got everything you need for a comfortable stay.
Villa Casa Hermosa was clean and bright and was beautifully presented. It was also well equipped, and just felt so welcoming. With it being early in the year the evenings were cooler, but the Villa was warm.
The garden was quite large, private, well laid out enclosed by a lovely white wall which highlighted all the colourful plants. The pool was clean and well cared for. It was just such a restful place to spend our time and we really had to drag ourselves out to go and for a walk. We realised that there was so much that we could actually walk to, leaving the car at home. Such as the Spa in the Village of Fortuna de Los Banos, which is well worth a visit. Also there is a Spanish restaurant and an English restaurant close enough for us to walk to, both are excellent. But we were always glad to get back to the Villa. We are definitely booking another holiday at this beautiful Casa Hermos.
