Great villa, really comfortable. Felt like home from home. Nick the owner was great and recommended some great places to eat. We loved Cubanga, the Posh chiringuita by the port. Live music on a Saturday and a big BBQ. Views at the villa were lovely, especially from the roof terrace - great place to star gaze too. Don't be put off by the approach from the main road. The golf club hotel appears quite derelict now, so it is a bit off putting as you drive past, but the house and surrounding setting are great and so long as you have a car, it's a perfect base, particularly if you fancy travelling round to the golden sands of Talitha ( bolonia is gorgeous! ). Local beach is nice and quiet, but shingle and on some days the waves are huge, so not suitable for little ones. Would recommend el Cristo beach, for sand, calm waters, friendly chiringuitas and very down to earth Spanish crowd ( if you are a Spanish speaker the language on the beach apparently was quite crude!), go in the afternoon so you can stay til the sun goes down. Loved Duquesa port during the day, very pretty, but not so much at night, a slightly coarse British atmosphere. We always drove car down for dinner as street lights don't work past the derelict hotel, so it's a bit scary at night. You have to cross the main road on a footbridge to get to the sea front. Pool, just a short stroll from the house, was fab...there was hardly anyone but us there, so we had it to ourselves whenever we used it! Small but very deep, so make sure little ones have swimming aids. Really had a great holiday here and would love to return sometime. House in particular is highly recommended.
This was a very nice weekend break. Big house, near the beach. I had a nice weather , but this is Spain and the weather is almost guaranty. The place is very clean detached to the golf course. Quiet location, Spanish little village with small English community, by the charming harbour. Highly recommend.
