We stayed at this perfect villa in the most beautiful and friendly place for 10 days, our only complaint was that we didnt book longer.
Santa Lucia, although a small town located high in the mountains, has everything you need for a restful and relaxing stay.
Staying in a private villa is perfect as there are three supermarkets within a five minute walk of the property which have everything you would need for the stay. There are a few restaurants and pubs / cafes within a short walk also (Strongly recommend El Mirador de Santa Lucia, beautiful restaurant with stunning views and first class food and service) There is also a bakery next to the property which has everything you could possibly think of for fresh breakfast / treats / breads and is a must try!
Everyone we encountered in the village was so nice and friendly and although not many spoke English they were happy to help and even happier when we tried a little Spanish - we didnt find this an issue at all.
Lastly, the villa. . .its hard to put in only a few words how amazing it was. Exceptionally spacious and clean with absolutely everything you need for your stay - all cleaning and day to day products for both inside and outside the property are provided (from dishwasher tablets to fabric conditioner to pool net etc). No expense has been spared in upgrading the property with all appliances of the highest spec and the layout being perfect - they seem to have thought of everything from the beautiful spacious en-suite bedroom with amazing views from its balcony to the cosy lounge, to the large, bright fully equipped kitchen not to mention the perfectly private garden and fantastic pool (which is a lot bigger than we thought it would be) with handy shower room beside it. We cannot recommend both the property and the village highly enough and will definitely be returning.
