Juan and Lily are perfect hosts, and have made my family feel so welcome every time we stay in their villa. They are so passionate about sharing their wonderful culture, which makes this villa an authentic Spanish experience. They are very kind, warm people that really make this one of the best places to holiday, as they can advise on the best places to visit, shop or sight-see depending on your interests. In addition to this, they are really great to be around as they always make me smile and laugh. For instance they know I love Spanish food, so have made a lot of effort to share recipes with me and have even taught me how to cook real Spanish recipes! <3
Although there is no oven, the villa is well fitted out with a hob, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, internet and air con. It is always immaculately clean and tidy, and the rustic decor really suits the house and location. Perfect! The quiet location and high setting mean you get jaw-dropping views of the Andalucian countryside on the patio and in the pool. I am sure there is no better way to unwind than sitting on the patio with an ice cold drink, looking out across the fields.
Santaella is a lovely town with beautiful, old buildings and friendly residents who usually smile and say "Hola!" as you pass. Juan is a fountain of knowledge of the history of Santaella and its surrounding area, and is more than happy to answer questions and give an overview of the history of the area if you like that kind of thing (I do!) so I feel really connected to the place. It's also a good base for exploring the nearby cities of Cordoba and Seville, if you have a car.
I have been to the villa multiple times, and recommend this place to my friends. I really look forward to each time I go, as it is my favourite destination. Thank you so much, Juan and Lily!
