Set in an orange grove and totally secluded but within easy reach of the town with it's numerous bars, restaurants and amenities, it was the perfect place for us to unwind with our two golden retrievers. Juan met us and gave us a full run-down on his beautiful property and was easily contactable for any questions or advice.
The house is well furnished and the kitchen well-equipped (we have never rented a property with so many plates, cutlery and utensils). The outside barbecue was excellent and our only disappointment was that we could not use the pool, it being February. We had wonderful weather and a solar heating system for the pool would have been advantageous as we had sunshine most days. However, there was lots of outside space with numerous places to eat outside dependent on the wind direction!!
The nights are fresh at this time of year but the wood-burner with a plentiful supply of old olive wood to burn made the house beautifully cosy. As we mentioned to Juan, a heated towel rail in the bathroom would be an added bonus for the time of year we stayed. We also had fresh oranges, lemons and clementines to pick. Just to walk outside and pick oranges for breakfast juice was a novelty.
The coast is a twenty minute drive and we spent many afternoons sunbathing on the beach after a good lunch. We can thoroughly recommend Cabopino beach and the dogs loved playing in the water.
All in all, a great place and perfectly located for near and further visits. Cadiz is two hours away which is the furthest we ventured but nearer still are Gibraltar, Ronda, Jerez, Grenada, all great places to visit.
Thank you, Juan, and we hope to return at a warmer time of the year to take full advantage of everything this beautiful region of Spain has to offer. If you solar heat the pool and install the towel rail we would come back in February to fully enjoy your lovely villa.
Had a fantastic holiday at Villa Rural. Very clean, well equipped lovely villa with a wonderful pool and outdoor area. Bedrooms were very comfortable and the wifi excellent. The kids loved the place!
