My partner and I stayed at the villa as a very last minute get away. We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle for a few days.. This villa did not dissapoint. So peaceful in the valley with a beautiful view. The pool was cleaned twice during our week long stya and was perfect for us. I would. Imagine a good size for a small family also, or just some couples wanting a get away. The interior of the hosue was quite dark, but needed in the heat and provided a sanctuary of cool. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything that we needed. We love to cook and ut was our plan to eat at the villa all week. We had everything we needed to do So. The bed was comfy and bathrooms well equipt with lots of hot water.. Table fans that we found in a cupboard, were a godsend for our last two nights, when the outside temperatures soared. We used the outside barbecue a couple. Fo times, which was easy and there are two lovely outdoor eating areas. We enjoyed picking the odd lemon from the tree and the mulberries on the mulberry Bush were beautiful. As for location, a car is definitely needed and the drive down to the villa from the road is not for the faint hearted. It is very steep and narrow and reversing skills to get bcak along the flat part of the road are a must. That said, we hired a small automatic car, which was a godsend and we managed no problem. If you don't rant to driv to the villa, it sposisble to park on the road side and walk a short walk down to it aong a path. Possibly not great in the dark. There are two local shops which open mornings and evenings. We were fortunea to go into SAN Mateo on the weekend, where there is a fabulous agricultural market in the mornings. The locals were having a community dance on the Sunday too, which was lovely and San Mateo itself is a quaint town to visit. For us, the villa and location was perfect. The owners were very easy to contact and attentive when checking in (our flight was delayed by four hours) but that didn't bother them. We were given a welcome basket of bread, cheese, milk, pasta and cava to name a few. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
