“Peace, views, pool and fun...what more do you need??”
Reviewed 9 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We stayed at Las Golondrinas in early August 2011. We were met by Bruce who led us to the villa from our agreed meeting point. It's a little tricky to get to and takes a bit of getting used to as the track is rocky and a bit narrow - so you definitely need to have a car to get there. When you do arrive at the villa though - you are met by a wonderful and unspoiled view out across Lake Vinuela. The colour of the lake changed during the day - a deep blue in the morning and evening, filled between by a beautiful turquoise green. In the background are the Sierra mountains.
The villa itself is well presented. The main access is to the side by the pool through the kitchen/dining area. From this area you can get through to the shared bathroom and two twin rooms. Go through the doors from the kitchen and you find the living room that takes you to the main double bedroom with en-suite and dressing area. In the centre of the villa is a courtyard with a door through to the garage where the laundry facilities are.

Among the facilities in the villa you have sky tv (limited), dvd player, video player, CD player and tape player (only us older ones will know what that is). There is even a selection of CDs and DVDs to plus some games and books.

The rooms are comfortable but perhaps need new mattresses (especially in the main bedroom). Otherwise, it's great and there are plenty of utensils, pans etc in the kitchen to use. And that all important large fridge to keep the beers cold.

Outside, you have various seating areas that offer shade/sun depending on the time of day but you can move to whatever suits you at the time. The pool is clean and the area around is spacious> At night time, the pool area is beautifully lit and offers perfect sky gazing and nice chillout time. There are outdoor speakers available to plug into if you have the right adapter (you will need 2 speaker jack connectors to go to a single jack in your mp3 player). In addition to this, you also have a bbq area and a dining area.

We had a thoroughly relaxing and fun time at the villa and found ourselves staying there practically the whole week (we ventured to Nerja - but that was just crammed with people).

A perfect place to relax, enjoy the sun and have peace and quiet. And on top of that, a very helpful and welcoming host - Bruce.

We were grateful for the constructive feedback! We are looking into upgrading the mattresses so future guests can enjoy all the villa has to offer after an even better nights sleep.

Many thanks for your review, we are always happy to receive feedback! We haven´t listed dish washer or tumble dryer on Las Golondrinas facility list, we have them stored in the garage but they are not connected to the electrics and not usable. We will remove them from the property altogether in order not to create confusion for future guests :) We didn´t know the juice presser was out of order, will get that fixed straight away.
