I am very pleased to report that the villa is excellent. It was equipped with a very wide range of facilities to make this a home for our holiday. It is 3 bedroom / 2 bathrooms but had a feel that is large and airy compared to other similar sized villas we have stayed in. The fit finish and cleanliness were all very good.
We varied eating out and eating in but had lunch pretty much every day and made our own food for this meal. The kitchen coped easily with anything we wanted to cook.
We were helped by a local supermarket which stocked pretty much all we needed.
The pool was used a lot and maintained by 3 or 4 visits by the 'pool guy' plus gardeners and cleaners twice during the 15 day stay.
Lajares is a lovely village about 1500m (centre) away so it's possible to walk but I would recommend a car. You are in the middle of the island so if you want to visit beaches you'll need to be mobile too. However the location does allow you to be maybe 15 minutes drive from any of the north coast beaches - we visited 5 and they were all good but El Cottillo has some extensive stretches which we revisited several times.
Turning to the owners I can only add my thanks for their attention to us during our stay. We never had a problem as such but they stayed in touch making sure all was well.
Really my only criticism is that the villa is without air conditioning. I will agree that on most of the nights here there was plenty of breeze and this did keep the bedrooms cooler but when either the temperatures peaked or the wind dropped we found it a bit uncomfortable at night. NOT a spoiler for the holiday or anything of that nature but we come from a much cooler climate so the transition is hard in a short time.
Overall though excellent villa, great hosts, fab locally for restaurants and an enjoyable holiday.
Finally if you plan any cycling during your stay I would also recommend that as the drivers and roads / scenery would make this a good base. We enjoyed a week with a couple of road bikes and the help of having lots of villages dotted about made getting drinks and food easy.
Gracias por tenernos como sus invitados.
