“One of the best you could hope for...”
Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in July 2018

Everything leading up to our stay including arrival info was made so much easier by Suzanne the owner, including the recommendation for car hire which turned out to be seamless. The property is beautifully furnished and decorated with stunning vistas from the terraces. The attention to detail is exceptional, even the little things like plenty of loo roll, dishwasher tablets etc are thought of - so you don't have to. The pool is an ideal size in its own private haven for sunbathing and cooling off. The village is in a time warp, many local kids don't ride bikes but horses! Lots of little bars with friendly locals and a few ex-pats, and good authentic restaurants. If you are lucky as we were then catch a local wedding or other event that pulls out the whole village. Great beaches nearby too. All in all the whole experience was a pleasure from the moment we booked, highly recommended.

“5*luxury set in beautiful village”
Reviewed June 4, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

A truly special house that was easily the best we have ever stayed in. Two luxurious bedrooms each on its own floor with first class bathrooms. An open lounge and kitchen, opening out to a fine terrace that gives a stunning panoramic view of the sleepy andelucian village of Canillas. The lounge is beautifully furnished, the kitchen modern, everything thought of. From here a spiral staircase to a sundrenched roof terrace. From the ground floor a superb pool.

From the back of the property are walks that take you up into the wilds of the great national park. From the front door a short walk down to bars and restaurants, everyone so friendly,treating you like fellow villagers.

I have been scratching the surface with my praise of this golden idyll, it simply must be experienced
