This was an excellent holiday with a very friendly and helpful service. The self catering properties are wonderfully decorated and the facilities are great. Set in the El Torcal region the location is dramatic with ample walking and cycling routes, the owners are more than happy to give you some advice on routes and good places to visit. With its hillside location the terrace and swimming pool has a view that will take your breath away looking over the hills - spectacular sunsets! The village is 2km away, Antequera is 14km away a beautiful town just over the other side of the mountain, offering everything you could want or need. Although hot throughout the summer there is a lovely breeze that keeps the air fresh. Would definitely return - in fact I am going back in August...
