“A little slice of paradise”

The Approach
Finding the place wasn't hard, especially with a GPS, the road up to the villa is safe but a real dirt track covered in large stones so take it easy with your rental vehicle. We hired an obscene business class vehicle which was the wrong type of car to take along this road but it handled it well. Our hosts Kath and Andy provided excellent directions even though we managed to follow them wrong (my fault).

The Hosts
Kath and Andy are great, very friendly and looked after us well. We'd have liked to spend some more time with them but they were always quite busy except when we need them :)

The Service
Fantastic, they really look after you, there are some rules which need to be followed so worth reading the welcome pack BEFORE you jump into the pool. Nothing untoward, no glass by the pool, don't use the provided towels while swimming, they were the ones we got wrong. The only thing we were surprised at was the 4Euro charge per towel for pool towels, I was fine as brought my own, my companions moaned a bit. In the end however it's important to understand that this is self catering with added benefits and Kath and Andy have a business to run and they do it wonderfully!

The House
We rented the two bedroom next to the pool, it was amazing, gorgeous as well, with a veranda for breakfast and evening tea, a shorter walk to the pool (about 30 seconds) and no stairs (ideal for disabled guests). I was incredibly disappointed with the WiFi (intermittent 1 bar on laptops, phones etc) until on day three I unplugged and replugged in the router and voila, 5 bars and could even get a signal by the pool. We had a small ant infestation one morning when they discovered a spot of jam on the counter. A 2 minute extermination later and we were not bothered again by the little rascals. Keep those surfaces spotless and the floor swept / mopped. No loo roll to be flushed down the toilet but this is rural Spain so that goes with the territory. Double bed was very comfy, the singles were a bit creaky and tiny but did the job. Extremely quiet nights and very peaceful days :)

The Pool
Yes this gets it's very own section because, what a pool! Deep enough to dive in one one end (over 6ft deep) and chlorine free. It required a wasp clean up every half an hour but it was bliss. The area around the pool is a regular sun trap, not that you need that in Spain. Packed with sun chairs and night lighting, this was the highlight of my visit :D

Conclusion
Amazing trip, great accommodation, excellent hosts, we'd recommend it to anyone! Just remember this is country living with a 30 minute drive to civilization (Zagra excluded although it's a delightful small village with a few shops).
