I can't praise Francesca, Davide and their parents enough for making our stay perfect. We were made to feel very welcome despite the language barrier and were thoroughly looked after throughout our stay.
We really enjoyed having the villa as our base, as my friend and I were climbing during the day in El Chorro and my boyfriend went out cycling it was lovely to have a well equipped and comfortable base to return to. We made dinner each evening and sat at the table on the porch listening to the crickets and watching the geckos with the mountains in the distance. Bliss!
The villa is very neat, tidy and clean and boasts a swimming pool, as well as various areas to either catch the sun or relax in the shade throughout the day including a charming courtyard where we breakfasted. But the main event and the real touch of rustic perfection is the orange grove which we gleefully picked and squeezed oranges daily for our breakfast.
Alora can be seen from the property and is a short drive from the villa where a supermarket provides all your food needs and the various shops and cafes are a joy to explore. Upon arrival we were shown where everything was including an abundance of playthings for any children we may have, beach accessories and laundry facilities, even the wifi router. Although we didn't have any children with us the villa boasts lots of swings, a sandpit and toys for kids, as well as being very safe and secure with a high gate and locking door at the entrance to the property.
I tried to think of anything I would change or add to our experience in the property but honestly couldn't think of anything! We look forward to coming back next year if possible.
