This is a fabulous place to stay. There is so much to say about it. Firstly, Xavier is a wonderful, helpful host. He sent us precise directions from the airport and suggestions of places to visit and eat. The housekeeper met us to let us in, even though we arrived at 11pm from the airport. At any time we could contact Xavier if we needed help with anything. He left us drinks and some nibbles, which was very welcome when we had arrived so late. The apartment is stunning. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, spacious, beautiful views, large balconies..... just fantastic. All facilities were perfect. The highlights for me were the ensuite bathroom, fab shower and jacuzzi bath. (I love nice bathrooms!) The air conditioning was very welcome too. The pool area was beautiful and the pool is a great size, with sunbeds and lovely views towards the sea.
It was very windy for a few days, while we were there, especially up by the pool, but the balconies at the apartment faced the other way, so it was sheltered and a real sun trap. We ate out on the balcony most nights, watching the sunset over the hills.
We were there with our three teenagers, aged 15, 17 and 18. They all had a great time. I found some great things for us to do in the area, from Trip Advisor, including Canyoning at Benahavis and Segways at Sabillinas.
You do need a car to get around.
I would definitely recommend this place. We had a perfect holiday and I would love to go back sometime. Thank you Xavier.
