Well, OK we didn't have sun every single day but pretty near.
I guess booking six weeks in winter at a villa I'd never seen was a little brave but as things worked out it was a perfect choice.
We stayed February and a couple of weeks into Match and only had two wet days.
The villa has four double/twin bedrooms plus a sofa-bed so it could sleep ten. There are four bathrooms, all en-suite.
It's located a short drive from Alhaurin El Grande and the daily morning drive for fresh bread was a delight with the windows fully open and snow-capped mountains in the distance.
The villa is kept spotlessly clean. There are some hi-tech audio gizmos that we didn't mess with but the cinema room in the basement ticked all the boxes.
The grounds are enormous and feature a separate vegetable area and another for cacti
We were immediately impressed on arrival by the generous "starter kit" in the fridge and freezer
A super friendly gardner visits the grounds at least once a week and seems able to fix any small problem with the wave of hand.
But, the ultimate accolade............I've just booked for next yearMore
