We stayed at this amazing villa as a group of 5 friends for a short break.

The accommodation itself is stunning and looks like something from a very expensive brochure with its modern white exterior and clean, bright homely interior. The double height living accommodation is breathtaking and the views are just what you want to enjoy from one of four patio areas with a glass of chilled vino verde and a dish of olives.

Large groups will not be disappointed with the choice of bedrooms, bathrooms and living space and there are multiple seating areas both indoors and outdoors to cater to all tastes.
Decor is tasteful with lovely unique touches such as the handmade cushions and artwork.

Children and grown-ups can make use of the extensive library of reading material and games as well as the games console in the amazing round tower room. Locally there are a couple of good bar restaurants and the walking or cycling routes nearby as well as the pool and multiple sports equipment on site means nobody will be short of things to keep them entertained.

We will definitely be back. Thank you Jane for a lovely stay.

“Stunning property, fantastic view, tranquil and ideally placed!”

We have stayed here multiple times before with my family (wife and 3 kids - 4, 6 & 10)). We have been coming since our youngest was -4 years old!! The property is amazing with stunning views down the valley and tranquil. The kids love the pool, lots of space to play both in and out of the sun. Fantastic sun terrace and we love eating in the courtyard at the front. Location is perfect as only 20-30 mins to various beaches, aqua parks and golf courses. The owners are very friendly and accommodating with local assistance only down the road. Great traditional food at the local restaurant and really good value. We will always come back to this amazing property.

“Superb contemporary farm house wrapped in peace & tranquility!!”

Although it was last year (July 2013) that we stayed at this lovely property, we felt that we should still put finger to keyboard and write a few words to summarise how we felt about our holiday.

Flicking through the properties on the internet, we had initially discounted the property as there is a small annexed property attached; we are quite an anti-social couple when on holiday and value our privacy but this didn't prove an issue at all... we are SO SO glad we didn't pass it by because of this. As the property is rurally located up on a hillside, it was actually quite reassuring to know someone was close by to help us if we needed it.

Highlights (in reality, far too many to mention!!!!!)
- Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the hills... what better way to start the day!
- The games room was a hit with the whole family.
- A game of football on the Playstation 2 in the chic 'curved' room became an evening ritual for me and my son!
- The open-plan living was great as was the vast feeling of space in the lounge where the vaulted ceiling and mezzanine hang high above you (the photos on the website don't do it justice!!).
- The pool... got used daily (the views from the pool are also spectacular)... don't let the fact that its an over-ground pool deter you!
- Star gazing from the balcony off the main bedroom... amazing night sky.

Gripes? A couple I suppose (more annoyances than major problems)... the aircon unit in the main bedroom wasn't working when we arrived and took quite a while to fix (laid back local tradesman rather than the owners fault!). Loss of water pressure in the downstairs shower room at times.. apart from those niggles, everything was spot-on.

All in all, an amazing property that made our 2013 holiday the best family holiday we've ever had!
