This Villa is in a stunning location with far reaching views down across the lake and up to the mountains. To access it you need to drive past Los Romales and then turn right down a mile long mostly dirt track so recommend a car like a crossover(Nissan Juke) although we got away with a Merc A Class. You can’t really walk anywhere but the villa is lovely. It’s clean and nicely laid out and internally better than the pictures suggest. Very comfortable stay and the welcome pack is very welcome too. There is a little non powered water sports biz on the lake which is fun too, we went twice. All in all we loved it!
Hi Mark, So pleased you all enjoyed your stay in Chispas, and also that you have taken the time to let us and others know. Good that you thought that it was better than the photographs. Please don't hesitate to contact us again should you want to come and stay in any of our villas around Lake Vinuela. Ian and Janet.
A beautiful well appointed villa tastefully furnished situated on the shore of Lake Vinuela amidst spectacular mountain scenery. The mature garden and private pool are of a high standard adding to the enjoyment of a peaceful, private holiday destination within stunning Spanish countryside.
Thank you for your kind comments, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay, perhaps we may see you for a return visit another year around our beautiful area either in Villa Chispas or in one of our other villas. Janet and Ian
We were met by the manager who is very pleasant just a short drive from the villa, the location is rural 1 mile from the main road, the road leading to the villa was rough. The villa is very well equipped spotlessly clean, great view of the lake, good size pool with easy access roman steps. Car defiantly needed. We did have some problems with hot water we had to keep disconnecting the gas bottle to get hot water, the manager did add an extra bottle, that seemed to solve the problem, we had two lots of guests lining was changed after first week and a cot provided. I did leave a blouse in the wardrobe and text the owner if they could forward it and I would pay the cost but as to date haven't heard anything, disappointed surly not too much to ask!
Pleased you like the villa, but sorry you did not like the area. Your blouse is all parcelled up ready to post to you, but as our postal service is not very good, we have a friend coming back to the UK next week so he will be posting it to you.
