Just returned from a fantastic 3 week stay in the property in Benajarafe. We were met by Katrina as planned and taken to the property up a bit of a bumpy road but when we got there the views to the Med coast were amazing. The photographs on the Holiday Lettings website do not do any justice to the property which is actually 2 villas with a very inviting swimming pool. Although we arrived as a couple we were joined by our daughter and grandchildren for a week during the school holidays and they too had a fantastic time. The adjacent arrangement of the 2 villas and the additional first floor element means that extended families can be together but have their own space if required. There is a possibility that the pool may need to be shared with other residents if all elements are not booked. The pool could be a little deep for some but it is securely fenced off from the villas and the kids never wanted to get out of it. The poolside has plenty of seating/eating areas and the roof terrace allows you to see forever. Katrina kindly provided us with some fresh fruit and vegetables from their fields and gave the boys a guided tour in addition to dog sitting Jess whilst we went to Gibraltar. There are ample facilities in the village including a superb bakery (open very late) and a butcher. Although this is a small fishing village there are plenty of bars and restaurants in the Spanish style without the fish and chips of the larger resorts. The local beach is of the dark volcanic sand variety but is flat and kept very clean. Malaga city is a short drive away and has everything for everyone from shopping to the beaches and sightseeing although driving in the city can be quite an experience. Lots of other activities within short driving distances and local buses serve all areas.

Katrina made us feel very welcome , the villa was very spacious , and unbeatable views. A good sized swimming pool which was maintained well , very good . And only a 5 minute walk from the beach - beautiful beach very peaceful, and a selection of traditional restaurants on the beach front and a family ran bakery ! All in a 10 minutes walk , benajarafe is a brilliant place .
