Jonathan, August

Overall:
This villa was absolutely amazing. From the first view of the property as you arrive to every detail along the way. The gardens are stunning. The house is beautifully furnished with antiques and regional influences. This place is truly magical.
Enjoyed Most:
The gorgeous outdoor spaces provided a dreamy setting and perfect atmosphere for our party of 20.
Enjoyed Least:
We thought everything was luxurious about this property, except the kitchen pans.
Surrounding Area:
The quaint mountain villages, amazing coastal towns along the breathtaking Mediterranean Sea, Granada, Alhambra. The list goes on and on.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Otivar was not walking distance, but it was only a few minutes by car and had shops for supplies and VERY nice people.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring plenty of water, as the water at the villa is not potable. We had plenty of great food in Otivar and Almunecar. I enjoyed most the evenings that the villa staff cooked dinner for us. These are cooks, not chefs, which is clearly stated in the info packet. That being said, the food was very good and the atmosphere magical.
Directions:
We used the GPS coordinates and our GPS took us straight there - no problems.
Check In Out:
I speak some Spanish, but am not sure I understood everything during check in. The staff were extremely helpful and communication was fun if not flawless.

Colby, June

The gardens and views.
Enjoyed Least:
No A/C or screens.
Surrounding Area:
Views.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Otivar, not in walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring a fan and mosquito net. Our favorite restaurants were Bar Restaurant Madera and Buena Vista in Otivar and Bar Kiki in Granada.
Directions:
We did use a GPS and found it, although we did pass the drive the first time in the dark.

Patricia, June

Overall:
Absolutely excellent. It could not have been a more appropriate setting for a family get-together of 17 people of various ages.
Enjoyed Most:
The whole property was superb. While retaining the quaint, antique nature of the houe, the modern bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms were combined with tasteful decor and beautiful rooms. The grounds dating back 400 years are absolutely stunning.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing. It was all superb.
Surrounding Area:
We hardly went off the property as it was so great to just enjoy the viilla and its grounds. A day trip to Granada was an excellent excursion.
Tips or Restaurants:
You cannot but enjoy this wonderful villa.
Directions:
Easy to find. You don't need a GPS.
Check In Out:
No problems at all. Peppa, who runs the villa, does the cooking, organizes the shopping, etc., is wonderful. Luckily I speak Spanish - it might have been tricky without this.

Bryan, August

Overall:
The villa is beautiful and very private. It was perfect for a family reunion with day trips out from the villa.
Enjoyed Most:
After the first two nights, we cooked for ourselves and the outdoor seating was fabulous for meals. The staff brought fresh bread every day.
Enjoyed Least:
There was some confusion over the food preparation. We had ordered flats of water and other items which were never provided. We ordered meals prepared at the villa for Saturday and Sunday night. The staff was told that we had 5 vegetarians out of 20 people but the meal on Sunday had a lot of fish, but few vegetables. The clothes washer takes a long time to wash clothes.
Tips or Restaurants:
It is important to tell clients in advance to bring groceries and water to the villa on Saturday since the stores are closed on Sunday and the property is about 20 minutes up from Alemuncar where you there is a nice grocery store.
