Description (written by the owner)

This lovely 3 bedroom/2 bathroom villa with own pool, is in the hills above the quaint old village of Partaloa. The location is very peaceful, with horse riding nearby.

FREE WI-FI NOW AVAILABLE

The villa has 3 double bedrooms, 2 with double beds and one with 2 single beds. A car is essential.

We also have a travel cot, changing mat, highchair, and baby bath.

The lounge is large and has a raised dining area with table and six chairs. An attractive open fireplace, and doors to terrace.

Wi-fi is now included.

The TV is satellite, so has all the English programmes.

There is a DVD player, with many films. Bring your Sky card if you have one, to get even more programmes.

The kitchen has a fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle oven, hob etc.

There is a family bathroom and a shower in the en-suite in the master bedroom.

All bedding and towels including pool towels are provided.

Also a hairdryer, iron and ironing board.

Outside is the 8m x 4m pool with pool shower,

sunbeds, and a table and six chairs. The gardens surround the property which is walled and fenced with lovely views of the mountains.

If you get bored with sitting round the pool, there is the Riding Centre (Rancho Luz del Sol )just up the hill which caters for all abilities and beginners are welcome. You can take a trek into the mountains, stopping at a restaurant on route, or have a barbeque on your return. Quad bike tours and mountain bikes are also available.

1 or 2 days riding in a week = £40 per person per day

3 or 4 days rdiing in the week= £35 per person per day

5 or 6 days riding in the week = £30 per person per day.

This riding deal basically gives you a 3 hour escorted trek into the countryside in the morning. Then if you want to ride more you can take a horse into the school, out on your own or join another hack in the evening.

Partaloa is a real step back in time and it is just a 10 minute walk. It has 5 bars, all different and a small supermarket plus a baker and pharmacy (ask the neighbours how to find these as they are not obvious!)

It is 10 minutes drive to the big towns of Olula Del Rio and Albox, which both have the big Spanish supermarket "Mercadona".

Also in Albox, there are many restaurants,(including Chinese and Indian) bars, hairdressers (English and Spanish. Ten-pin bowling, snooker club etc.

In fact all the facilities that you would expect in a big town.

PLACES TO VISIT

COAST

The coastal resorts of MOJACAR: (about 45 minutes drive) A very long beach with bars & restaurants all along the sea front and a lovely promenade to amble along. There is a super ice-cream parlour with so many delicious flavours and desserts to choose from!

Then there is the ancient Mojacar Pueblo situated in the side of a mountain, whitewashed old buildings lining the streets, and a wonderful view at the top.

Other coastal places with excellent beaches, are VERA, which also includes a nudist beach and a water park, GARRUCHA, which is a working fishing port so has many very good fish restaurants. SAN JUAN, AGILAS,& VILLARICAS .All worth a visit.

GOLF

Desert Springs, Valle De Este, Mojacar and Cortijo Grande

are all very good courses and about 40 minutes drive.

SKIING

Granada with the Sierra Nevada mountains is about 2hrs, drive and offers excellent skiing. Not in Summer of course!

GENERAL

Granada itself is a lovely city to visit, especially if you incorporate the famous Alhambra Palace ( you will have to book online in advance for the Palace). There are sightseeing buses that run frequently.

Nearer than Granada are the lovely lakes of Baza (about45 mins. drive)

The Monastery at Saliente (30 mins.)

A great day out and a lovely drive accross the mountains towards Almeria, is the Mini Hollywood theme park where many of the old "spaghetti westerns" were filmed. There are daily shows, and also a zoo. (about an hours drive, maybe less)

If you don't feel like going anywhere, you can just unwind by the pool and relax with a good book and a glass of wine!

Notes

My 96 year old mother has stayed here and managed very well.

You would be able to get a wheelchair in and out of the building itself, but might have a problem pushing it ( with a person on board) up the slope from the front door to the gate. My Mum was able to walk to the gate with help.

There is a wardrobe in the main bedroom and fitted wardrobes in the other two bedrooms.

There are ceiling fans in all the bedrooms and two in the lounge, plus air-conditioning in the lounge and master bedroom.

We have owned this villa since it was built 7 years ago.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Beautiful villa

We stayed here for a week and thoroughly relaxed! The villa is gorgeous and very well looked after in a quiet area. The pool is very private and a welcome break from the hot Spanish sun. Although there isn't many bars or restaurants to walk to it is only a short drive to albox where we discovered some very good places to eat. All in all we had an excellent holiday - a big thank you to Ron and Jenny!
Owner comment

Beautiful Villa

We have spent a a very relaxing 2 weeks at Ron and Jenny's villa at the end of August. The villa and pool are beautiful and very clean and well equipped. Jenny was very quick to respond to my initial inquiry and the booking process was smooth. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting to spend time in this area.

Family with teenage kids

Fantastic chill out holiday if you're looking for peace and quiet. Villa superb with loads of extras thrown in. Barbara & Tim opposite on hand if any problems. Our visit to Nijar was great. Local horse riding in the mountains finished off our holiday nicely. Already missing it! Thanks Ron & Jenny

Brilliant week in the Sun!

Returned from our stay in this Villa a couple of weeks ago and want to go back already! It was spotless and a lot bigger than we expected! After seeing the pictures on the website it looked great but really didn't do it justice on space as it is a lot bigger than it looks! 6 of us stayed here for the week and thoroughly enjoyed our week; we went horse riding through the mountains and had the sunset BBQ which was a great evening and they are such friendly people so would strongly recommend to do this whilst you are there as it is just down the road from the villa so within walking distance. The pool bar in Partaloa which is also within walking distance was really nice and again very nice people which made us feel very welcome and the food was great and so cheap, try the fish and chip night on a Friday and tapas on a Sunday which are both fab! Vera is also worth a visit to the beach and the water park! All in all a fab week and could not have asked for a better place to come back to as the villa was great and also the neighbours; Barbara and Tim, who greeted us and gave us info and directions on places to visit, they were very helpful and were always at hand if we needed them! Thank you again Jenny and Ron and would love to return in the future!
