We have just returned from a week away with the family to Villa Amarilla and wish that we had booked for another week!
We arrived a little early to the village of Los Ventorros where we had something to eat and drink and called John to see if there was any chance as to if we could get in a little earlier to which he kindly said yes and got it ready for 2pm which was great. We arrived to the villa in our three rental cars which easily fitted onto the driveway in fact you could easily fit four cars on.
John greeted us there and showed us round where we were all wowed by the villa. John told us to just WhatsApp him if we needed anything which was helpful.
Our group was made up of 6 adults and 2 two year olds, and they were entertained all week by the toy motorcycles, playhouse and all the other toys that were there. There was also a play kitchen inside which they loved too- you won’t need to take any toys with you!
The villa layout is great. There are plenty of seating areas outside, a great swimming pool, a bbq area and a fantastic bar. The only problem is that the outdoor fridge wasn’t working and would have been a problem for us if we didn’t have our own portable fridge as you would have to go inside to get a cold drink to then return to the bar which would be annoying.
The bedrooms are all a decent size and having three bathrooms with showers made it easy for everyone to get ready.
The area is beautiful and the views around the villa will have you wowing the entire time.
The village of Los Ventorros is just a 10 minute easy stroll down hill and has a great bar called El Molino which serves fantastic tapas. The town of Comares is a 20 minute walk uphill where there is a shop that has pretty much everything, four bar/ restaurants, a pharmacy and the views up there are stunning. We went to bar camping in Comares twice and the food was great with large portions.
I would highly recommend renting a car so you can get around. We went to Malaga one day which was an hours drive and Nerja another day which was just under an hour.
The owner Samantha was very helpful and answered lots of questions promptly and in detail which was appreciated as we had a few worries / questions regarding the kids.
We would have no hesitation in returning to the villa and will recommend to others.
All in all we had one of the best family holidays to date!
We had a wonderful family holiday here this summer. Facilities fantastic and in idyllic location . We had everything we needed and enjoyed different areas to sit if needing peace and quiet. Fabulous pool, clean throughout. Would love to go back and highly recommend this villa for families with young children as very safe . Only negative comment, bit of a rush to get out by 10 am when stripping beds etc Overall a fantastic stay and wonderful holiday
Me and my family stayed at this beautiful villa, the greeter couldn't have been more helpful nothing was to much trouble,the villa itself is perfect for family and very child friendly my 2yr old granddaughter had plenty of room to run around and the pool area is all fenced off with a lockable gate so we knew she was safe! The village of comares is beautiful and nearby, i really recommend a stay here.
This was our first visit to Spain and what a treasure we found. The villa was quiet and peaceful but only a short distance from shops and bars at the lovely Comares. The facilities in the villa were everything we could have wanted and John the greeter was helpful and informative. We took two friends with us and had a wonderful time, will certainly be booking again
property was just perfect. I would definitely recommend this for a family with children as there are so many little touches which make this ideal. Table top mountain is within walking distance and they will cook anything what you ask for even if it isn't on the menu. The pool was just perfect and gets the sun most of the day. Will hopefully be going back and this time taking the grandchildren. Samantha was very prompt with all our enquiries and made the booking so easy. John the greeter is only a phone call away for any problems although we did not have any. All in all a beautiful property in an idyllic situation
The Spanish themed bar, the large pool, the views, wifi, pool table. ping pong, lots of space to chill out, within walking distance of two good bar / restaurants and a 5 minute drive up to the lovely unspoiled village of Comares along with ease of booking with Samantha the owner and John who looks after the villa he will be there to greet you and will come early mornings during the week to do the pool so unless you need him he will not disturb you. We have had fantastic holidays here since 2008 and look forward to returning again, as every year they have made improvements to the villa where some holiday accommodation just provide the basics.
