Pre-holiday communications had been good and included special arrangements to accommodate our late arrival. There were only four of us and, as the house accommodates eight, we had plenty of space. The house was in a good condition and homely decorations made it a very comfortable place to be. The close proximity of the private pool was fantastic so we could jump in at any time of the day (or night) - a good sized pool (c 10m x 5m) which was well maintained. The pool-side seating area with table, umbrella etc was great although we were disappointed not being able to have a barbeque due to local regulations to prevent wild-fires.
We were disappointed at not having wi-fi and we couldn't get the TVs to work but that didn't really spoil our enjoyment of the house. We especially liked the terraced area outside the smaller kitchen for evening meals although we also used other shaded areas for eating outside using the table and chairs provided. We made use of the juicer for fresh orange juice which was a bit of a treat. The local shop in El Burgo is literally five minutes down the road and stocks most things although as we arrived late on a Saturday we ventured into Marbella for a hypermarket shop up on the Sunday.
The local towns are a delight and visiting Ronda was a highlight of our week - we managed to find a restaurant for lunch which overlooked the gorge with a reasonable three-course lunch set menu.
Overall, a fantastic week with many happy memories.
A nice quiet off the beaten track holiday for the family. Huge amount of space, good size pool for kids and great facilities - washing machine, dishwasher a bonus.
A great place to stay if you're looking just to unwind and go easy, no fast pace here. Lovely views, friendly locals, convenient and not too pricey supermarket just 5mins away. Local club with larger pool nearby, karting about an hour away but a nice scenic drive to get there, Ronda about 45mins away.
Great instructions & tips from Tracey & Callum. A genuine location to have a nice relaxing family holiday.
