We arrived from a long journey and were pleasantly surprised by the stunning location of the hilltop village and the accomodation was the icing on the cake, situated as it was, just off the plaza square. We were met and showed around by Puri, who was lovely, and who couldn't speak English which made for lots of gesticulations as we didn't speak Spanish, not enough to warrant a conversation anyway.
The whole flat is decorated in a moroccan style with some nice homely touches and basically splits off into two sides with the spacious and well-equipped kitchen in the middle. The photos on the website don't really do the flat justice as it's much better in reality. Both bedrooms were comfortable and well furnished, the double bed being a good size, which pleased my partner as he is 6ft 3, as the spanish beds are usually a nightmare for him. The showers were clean and excellent.
There are two roof terraces, which again look much better in reality, with a spectactular sweeping view across the valley and out to the sea. Attention has been given to make sure that the guests have evrything they should want, barbecue, lovely flowers , candles,cushions, and comfortable seating. We spent as much time outside as we possibly could as it was such a lovely space, especially if you could tuck yourself out of the wind. It is a windy part of the country so the good news is that your washing dries within minutes but you have to be mindful about opening the windows inside the flat as the gusts will slam them shut and could cause some damage if not careful.We had several days of calm though so it wasn't a big issue.
The flat looks out over the street below which leads onto the pretty square with loads of small bars and cafes, consequently we didn't have far to go for breakfast or late night drinks. However, noise in the late evening could be an issue for some people in the hotter summer months if the windows were open. There are fans for both rooms though. The back room with two single beds is therefore much quieter.
The other minor quibble is that the stairs leading up to the flat are like climbing the north face of the Eiger so may not be suitable for very young children or people with physical disabilities where stairs would be a problem. The only problem we had was climbing them after a few too many Sangrias!
We loved the flat and would deffinetly recommend staying there. We'll be back !
The owner doesn't live there but personally phoned me to make sure that I had received all the details beforehand and was there if we needed him. Lovely man.
p.s. I would rate the flat as five stars but for some reason my tablet wouldn't let me sorry
