A very special place in the sun
Our family, two adults and two girls 11 and 15, stayed at the villa in the May half term. Although early, we all felt like we'd had our summer holiday as the weather was lovely and warm. The villa was perfect for the family, plenty of room for everyone inside and a choice of three different places to eat in the garden depending on whether we wanted to be in the sun or out of it. The villa is perfectly located to make the most of the coastline - although very near Torrevieja, we actually spent more time investigating some of the more southern coves and beaches which were almost deserted, but fantastic places for the children to try out snorkelling in crystal clear water, which was plenty warm enough even though still early in the season. To be honest though, the villa was so quiet and comfortable and the pool so welcoming, that we rarely ventured away from it. Some might say that it's a shame to go to a foreign country and not make the most of the local scenery and culture, but for us, it was just great having our own space, fantastic weather and all the comforts of home - why change a winning formula? The house is fantastically well equiped, I don't think there was a single gadget or utensil that we were short of and there were plenty of sun beds in the garden for all. The owners even supply a gas BBQ, which we made frequent use of. Overall, we would thoroughly recommend the villa for those who just want to enjoy the sun in the peace and quiet of their own back yard, or as a perfect place to return to and recharge your batteries for the more adventurous types. Finally, you have the reassurance of knowing that the english speaking local agent is only a phone call away if you have any problems and is happy to help out with any domestic emergencies as well as being on hand if there are any issues with the house. The house was spotless when we arrived, the agent was there to meet us and show us around and was also there at the agreed time on our departure day. Thoroughly recommended, we will be back!
