“Gorgeous place”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What a great place. The house is really nicely appointed and tastefully decorated. It has all the equipment you need. Beds are comfortable, it's all really lovely. The garden is a divine oasis with lots of different areas, nooks and crannies. The pool is small but big enough, it doesn't have a shallow end which is worth noting if you have children. That said, there are plenty of lilos, woggles etc so that it's not a problem. We have a 4 year old and it was fine. Owners are super responsive and helpful. Couldn't fault it at all.

“Time to be together in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed August 31, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The house was everything we'd hoped for and more. The pool and garden gave us space to enjoy our time together as a family and we had perfect weather. The location was superb for days out and the proximity to the town meant we could wander in to eat in the restaurants in the evening or enjoy breakfast at the local cafe. Vivianne and Chris were great hosts and made the whole procedure so easy, especially with their amazing caretaker Sergio. We had everything we needed for a memorable holiday. Many thanks.

“Just lovely”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is the most beautiful house and garden. I would recommend it wholeheartedly. The photos don't show the extent of the garden - it's a delight of different areas and places to play and relax. It's probably worth mentioning for anyone with children that the pool is deep throughout - no shallow end. However, it comes with lots of woggles and lilos, so this wasn't a problem for us or our 3 year old.
I felt that our fortnight couldn't have been better, and the accommodation particularly represented great value for money!

“A Private Foothill Oasis.”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Dulled by late night arrival, our senses were awoken as we walked, seemingly, into a glorious scent bottle, & the morning vista of green oasis filled with birdsong confirmed this is a very special place. The resident Spotted Flycatcher's antics are a bird lover's delight. We swam, chilled & then explored from the coast to Alpujarras for a week from this comfortable , well appointed villa in a rural setting and style all of it's own. A perfect break - thanks for sharing with us Vivian and Chris !
