“Fabulous get away from it all villa with wonderful views”
Reviewed 17 October 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This is the first of two villas that I have stayed in belonging to Javier and Rosario (I stayed in Dachita in October 12). Both have their strong points: Dachita is easier to get to but La Reserva really allows you to get away from it all. The villa is situated on the opposite side of the river bed just outside the village of Frigiliana. The journey up to it is not for the faint hearted and I advise fully comp insurance and a reasonably powerful car (there is an easier route in from Nerja which Javier will show you) but boy is it worth it. You have the sun from mid morning right until it goes down over the next hill - so in Summer that means 9-10pm at night (great for those who don't come out from the shade until 4pm). As with all of Javier's villas it is spotlessly clean and incredibly well equipped: satelite TV, free wifi, DVD/CD player, library, dishwasher (v important), washing machine, hairdryer, iron etc. The welcome pack provided by Javier & Rosario is second to none: wine, beer, milk, bread, fruit, pate, cold meat, pastries, water, orange juice, chocolate mousse etc quite amazing. All towels are provided including pool towels. There are two bedrooms, one twin and one double & one bathroom with an enormous powerful shower. There is a barbecue and outside eating area and a small but clean pool. Our intention was to completely relax and we did. I think we only left the villa three times to go shopping - however there are plenty of beautiful walks nearby from the villa for those who are feeling more energetic. I can really recommend any of Javier's villas as he gave us a guided tour of a few others and my friend had stayed in the one in Frigiliana. Javier and Rosario are delightful and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. They stay away and leave you alone if that is what you want but are there in a trice if you have a problem or concern. That even extends to getting two helpless females out of a mess when their car got stuck on a road. Delightful holiday.

“A delightful cottage with great views”
Reviewed 11 September 2012 for a stay in July 2010

Over the past six years we have stayed at all five of Javier and Rosario's properties and we look forward to spending many more vacations with them. They rightfully pride themselves on providing a home away from home for their guests and have great attention to detail. The cottage is reached by a very steep road, but once there, you won't want to move. Everything is provided for a comfortable, pleasant stay in the sun, just bring the vino and the lamb chops to throw on the BBQ. Relax on the terrace and gaze at the incredible views over the river valley across to the old village of Frigiliana and bask around the pool or enjoy the house with all it's comforts.
