“Total Bliss!”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Spent the last two weeks of August at this tranquil location in an idea, compact house. We spent ttwo full weeks enjoying each other's company and recharging ourselves from what had been a very hectic year, since our last holiday together. Having found the village from the detailed directions, we were met by Pako (the owner) and his sister in law who took us to our home for the next two weeks. On arrival there was a box of beautiful fresh fruits and water in the fridge, all gratefully received. We were shown around the property and were able to ask various questions before we were left to settle in. We do very little on our holidays and have hired many holiday house for over 25 years. Our aim is always to find somewhere remote and away from it all and we certainly found the ideal house this year. The views were amazing and to watch the sun rising and the sun setting every evening was fantastic. The house, comprising of two bedrooms was comfortable and perfect for our needs. When we booked last year we were assured by Pako that he would be installing air conditioning prior to our arrival and we were delighted to see that this had been installed. In addition is was very obvious that considerable amount of money had been spent on the outside of the property providing much needed outside shade, for which we were truly grateful for. We were able to drink ithe tap water and enjoy proper full pressure power showers which considering the remoteness of the property was amazing . Pako contacted us to see if we had slept well after our first night and again throughout out stay to see if everything was ok. The pool was brilliant and so clean. It made a change that Pako was not afraid to use the filters on his pool - it stayed beautifully clean through our stay despite being excessively used. The wi-if /internet connection was a bonus, particularly as it worked so well. It was with regret that the 14 days came to an end far to quickly but for the very first of time in our travels we booked our return visit to this glorious location prior to our departure. Thank you Pako for your hospitality. Looking forward to our return visit next year.

“A fantastic vacation rental.”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We spent 2 weeks climbing and exploring the surrounding countryside. The house was absolutely amazing. Views of mountains in all directions. Clean, quiet, private and with all amenities. Would highly recommend this rental to anyone staying in the region. We will be back.

“Fantastic House in a lovely location – wish we’d stayed longer!”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014
1
person found this review helpful

This is a lovely comfortable open plan living and kitchen area, 2-bed house with spectacular views of the surrounding valleys due to its hill top location.

It had everything you need for a weekend away. And even comes with those things you sometimes forget to take on trips like towels, blankets, even kitchen condiments, oil, vinegar, washing up liquid, kitchen towels and toilet rolls.

Outside had a private pool, big metal BBQ, two terrace dining tables plus sun loungers, an even a mini-football pitch and badminton area.

Also the owner, Paco, and his wife were very welcoming even meeting us in nearby Valle de Abdalajis at 10pm on a Friday night to drive us personally to the house 7kms away. Then they took the time to explain everything to us. Nothing was too much trouble.

One word of advice. Don’t come at night! The last 100 metres of road are on a cliff edge which can be a bit scary after sundown!

But all in all well worth a visit. You won’t be disappointed.
