Our holiday began with a fabulous welcome from the owner Rafael, who also proved to be a great help when we had to contact him during the week. The Villa is fabulous, a real gem set in lovely grounds with a wide variety of fruit trees, has views to die for over the hills. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, restful break, this is the place. Lots of space to lose yourself in the garden and a fabulous swimming pool, in which you can really swim, not just a plunge pool.
The villa is well equipped, very comfortable and spotlessly clean, we couldn't fault its decor and comfort levels.
The two villages close by, Competa and Canillas de Albaida were very traditionally Spanish but had a good range of shops. Canillas is an easy walk and Competa has a wonderful gelatto shop.
I hope that others who choose to stay at Casa Rafa have as good a holiday as we had. Thanks Rafael.
