“Truly Spectacular”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I have just returned returned from Casa Sonana having spent a memorable 50th birthday there with my family. The villa is beautiful and it's position is just perfect. It's everything you'd expect a luxury Spanish villa to be and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. I can't recommend it highly enough and I am already booking for next year.

We have also celebrated some special occasions at the Villa, as have many other guests, as it lends itself so very well for that.

“Perfect Family Holiday”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Casa Sonana is a stunning villa in a lovely position. We were a family group which included 3 children under the age of five, parents and grandparents - the villa was perfectly suited for all of us. The decor and facilities were of a very high standard and every detail had been carefully considered, baby food, high chairs, a selection of cots and even toddler sized furniture! A generous welcome pack greeted us on arrival so the adults weren't left out either! The children loved the small pool, which was great because it was shaded as well.

The position of the villa is very good for exploring the surrounding area - and there is plenty to explore.

Last but not least - nothing was too much trouble for either Jill or her management team in Arriate, everyone was very friendly and helpful. We can highly recommend Casa Sonana.

“Total tranquility in Andalucia”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Villa Casa Sonana is airy, spacious and beautiful as are the grounds. It's so tranquil that I've come away from my holiday thoroughly relaxed (a first with a 3 year old!).

The owners have thought of everything. From hair dryers and robes in the bedroom to spare phone adapters in the draws! It's so great to go to a villa and not have to scrabble around for enough crockery and cutlery to eat 2 courses, let alone 3.

My son adored the pool and learnt to swim which was the highlight for us. The built in paddling pool ended up being a swimming pool for his octonaut toys. Ideal for you get children as it has a permanent sun shade above it.

If you want luxury, tranquility and a thoroughly relaxing holiday then Villa Casa Sonana is for you.

We cannot wait to return next summer.

“60 Reasons to be happy”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We travelled as a party of 4 couples to celebrate a notable birthday. We wanted a special place with all the creature comforts and hopefully a touch of luxury. It definitely lived up and even surpassed our expectations in many respects. We would certainly recommend it.

From our first enquiry to our arrival we were impressed by the service and attention to detail given by the host’s. They literally seemed to have thought of everything, from pre-arrival admin to arranging for someone to meet us in the village to help us find the villa (essential) and the overview of the villa, they couldn’t have done more.

The villa is beautiful, luxurious and spacious and by far the best equipped we have stayed in. I struggle to think of anything that it didn’t have. The garden is lovely, much more mature than the photos on the website would suggest with fabulous rural views. Due to it still being early in the season, I only admired the pool although some of our party were brave enough to risk a cold dip.

The shops in the traditional village of Arriate are about a 20 mins walk away or 5 minutes by car. I would recommend going into the village in the morning, the atmosphere is completely different to the afternoon when many of the shops are closed. We found a car essential for food shops with the nearest large supermarkets in Rhonda 15 mins away. It would be possible to buy everything in the village, once you have worked out what’s behind the facades, it actually has quite a large range of shops, they just aren’t obvious.

We ate at El Muelle de Arriate and as the other reviewers were equally impressed by the amazing host Frank. His recommendations were spot on and we truly had a meal to remember at an exceptionally reasonable price, I would recommend his restaurant to anyone.

We visited Ronda and the Alhambra at Granada (book in advance for the latter), both spectacular in their own ways. A satnav was very useful for finding our way into and out of Granada, worth considering taking or hiring one.

“Gorgeous Villa with impressive views near to the lovel village of Arriate”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 for a stay in September 2013
1
person found this review helpful

The hosts for this villa give a very warm welcome and make sure all your initial needs are met. We had requested a small food shop and our evening meal to be prepared making that first night after a long journey very relaxing and easy. It took around 1 1/2 to 2 hours to get to Malaga but it was a fairly easy main road drive all the way until the village when your host meets you to guide you through the village and to your villa.

The villa is very spacious and the garden was perfect for our little 2 year old to run around saftely. There was a stack of toys and cuttlery etc for little ones and we were even able to get a bed guard put up for our son saving on packing a travel bed.

The villa overlooks farmland and is in a really peaceful setting. Although you can walk to the nearest village of Arriate in about 10 minutes a car is probably still essential for food shops and getting around elsewhere. We went to an amazing restaurant next to Arriate train station I forget the name but the owner Frank is an amazing host and the meal was superb. He even took our little boy into the kitchen to fetch his evening bottle of milk.

I'd recommend this villa to any form of group, friends, young family would all enjoy their stay here.

Hola Angela, Many thanks for your review - we really appreciate your feedback and delighted that everyone enjoyed Casa Sońana. The restaurant next to the station in Arriate is called El Muelle - i'll tell Frank that you enjoyed it. It is a great addition to our little Pueblo Blanco. Glad that all the kids-stuff was welcomed at the Villa, I remember how much stuff you had to pack for little ones, so good to know that this helped. Thanks again for booking Villa Casa Sońana and hope we can welcome you all back again in the future. Until then, Saludos :) Jill.
