We stayed in Amanda’s apartment for 16 nights and had a wonderful time. We travelled
with our two kids, 3 and 1 and the apartment suited us perfectly. All communication was
excellent and very helpful and Amanda had so much great information for us in realation
to the location and all the local amenities and attractions. Check in was brilliant and very
efficient. The apartment was immaculately clean. We loved the roof terrace and spend
every evening dining on the terrace. The pool area was perfect and even had a kids
pools which was ideal for us. Overall an excellent apartment and we had a great holiday
there. Thanks Amanda!

"Great duplex apartment with roof
Fantastic duplex apartment located in a traditional Spanish village. Ideally located for exploring the beaches (ten minutes away by car) and mountains (fifty minutes by car). The accommodation is very well equipped, and benefits from a communal pool. There are lovely views of the mountains from the tremendous roof terrace, which is ideal for breakfast and BBQs and general lounging in the sunshine. Look forward to visiting again in the near future."
