“We love staying at Padre Aviles!”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was our 4th visit to Padre Aviles. Its a great base for an Andalusian holiday - we have visited both Granada and Seville on separate holidays as well as spending lots of time in Malaga (a beautiful city well worth a visit) and the local beaches and restaurants in Pedregalejo only a 15/20 minute drive down the hill from Padre Aviles, a very Spanish part of town, But what we really like doing is spending plenty of time relaxing around the pool at Padre Aviles! Our children were 2 & 4 when we first visited and are now 6 & 8 - with the swimming pool, ping pong, tennis courts, play area and the chance to make new friends there is plenty to keep them happy. The apartment is spacious and nicely presented and the pool is literally on the doorstep (behind a gated fence). A great size pool - perfect for children playing and also for adults swimming). A real escape, run by a lovely family - we'll definitely be back!

“Breathtaking views, tranquility, freindly, fun and safe”
Reviewed October 22, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

What a beautiful place - the views and tranquillity are breath-taking. Perched on the side of rolling olive tree hills - over looking a stunningly serene sea. Beautiful pool with a safe shallow area sealed off for young children. The apartments are spacious, beautifully restored, tastefully decorated and spotless. I went with family and young children in October 2012 and plan to return next year. October is a good time to go; there is enough heat for swimming and sun bathing but its fresh enough to explore the city and marina. David and Clare and family are fantastic hosts. The children all play together wandering off for hours whilst parents relax. We had tennis lessons there with a superb teacher. Breakfast, lunch and evening G&T on the balcony - taking in the views... very sad to leave but look forward to returning

“The perfect retreat for a young family”
Reviewed February 28, 2012 for a stay in October 2011

We stayed at Padre Aviles in October 2011, and benefitted from having the place to ourselves, along with some stunning weather - a great time of year to go if you like the sun but not the heat. Claire kindly upgraded us to the upper apartment over the pool, from which the view is truly spectacular. Padre Aviles had a number of attractions for us. The first was convenience, it is really close to Malaga airport - half an hour down the motorway - but also set right in the countryside with wonderful views down to the sea, AND you are ten minutes away from some really great restaurants on the coast. The seaside didn't feel particularly "kiss me quick", but then it was October - and all in all the most local town, with a wonderful covered market, had a more local than tourist atmosphere. There are also plenty of beautiful villages to visit further afield - Claire can advise.

The apartment itself was without fault. GREAT kitchen, lovely airy feel, two good size en-suite bedrooms - and cot & highchair provided.

Claire and David made us very welcome indeed. They provided a babysitting service for us one night, welcomed us with home made cakes and wine, provided us with DVDs from their selection, gave advice on restaurants - really everything you need.

The tennis courts are great - particularly for an early evening game and the pool is beautifully set - and still manageable in October.

What would have made the holiday better? I think two things - (1) if at all possible, wifi access - we didn't have much luck with that. (2) Probably rather seasonal but the wasp population was somewhat high and we had to be alert to prevent them entering the apartment.

But these are the most minor of gripes - all in all it was a 10/10 holiday experience.
