This villa is a fabulous place to stay as a family. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be booking again.
The area is very quiet - we wanted a chilled out, staying around the villa as a family kind of holiday which the property was perfect for, while there is a bar in walking distance, it's not somewhere with lots of nightlife. There are enough restaurants nearby however that you could eat out every night and not get bored (the Happy Garden in Albox serves the best Chinese food any of us had eaten in years).
We had a minor issue which I can help any future visitors avoid before they book! The property is alarmed, do not mistake the alarm controls for something to do with the air conditioning or an alarm clock and press the buttons to try and stop it flashing or it may well result in the alarm going off in the middle of the night and you having to disturb Carol to help you turn it off! We couldn't unlock the door leading out to the balcony but there are floor to ceiling windows which can be unlocked and opened so it didn't cause us any problems. Someone in a previous review mentioned the slippery tiles around the pool - this is something that happens around most pools but we put down a beach towel near the stairs for people to dry off a bit before going off dripping everywhere if that's something anyone finds useful.
The villa was very clean and the housekeeper, Carol, is lovely and very helpful. We're all suffering greatly from holiday blues after having such a lovely time and looking forward to our next visit.
One piece of information I'd have liked before I went (nothing to do with the villa so hasn't affected my review in any way) is that if you're using a sat nav be aware that some of the roads in Spain aren't up to the condition you might expect of roads in the UK - while travelling to or from a few places we were directed by google repeatedly down "roads" that either got to the point where they were completely impassable or were so small, steep and winding we found ourselves praying that nobody was coming the other way - if you can google the general area of any sights you'd like to visit and which main road gets you near it then use road signs to find it, you'd be better off.
Thank you once again, that's our third time now,just a perfect summer holiday.no complaints.Peace and relaxation of the villa,lazy days and the bustle of the resorts 30mins drive away.handy supermarkets,the wonderful hospitality of cati at catis bar. good value restaurants 15 mins drive.First visit to Lubrin, beautiful pueblo nice bar and good food.The family have enjoyed every fortnights holiday in 2013-14 & now 2016.Would like to think will return again.
When we phoned from Madrid airport there was no record of us staying at the villa. Very worrying! However, we arrived and village is quiet and very pretty. The villa is a good space, private and opposite hills and on the other side a reserve with lovely walks through trees. The problem is that the villa had not been cleaned properly for a long time so we had to spend a couple of hours cleaning the place up, hosing and brushing down the outside, the bbq was in a real mess so we left it. The kitchen needed a real good clean - oven grotty, all the plates etc. needed a good clean, cupboards and drawers dirty. After we'd cleaned it all up it felt more like a place we could stay for 10 days. We had a good stay, the couple looking after the place were friendly (although i'm not sure who was responsible for cleaning the place), area was lovely, beaches near Vera beautiful and we had a good stay. I think the owner needs to invest a little in new kitchen equipment, fresh sets of towels, better information (for example, we didnt know you sholdnt drink the tap water and only found out after visiting the shops, no info on local pharmacy or medical centre) some gardening and I think the place could quickly get back to 4 or 5*. Overall id say book the villa but my 3* score is currently a fair score.
Overall an excellent villa although not much else to do apart from relaxing. Really quiet and peaceful, a lovely little retreat.
Had a wonderfull two week holiday, staying at Rambleside. The Villa is as described with lots of room and a large pool, which with the tempratures so high, we all needed to be in and out constantly.The little hamlet is very quite, and the only noise you will hear is the sound of your own fun. You do need transport even for the shops, but all places we found easy to get to. Mini Hollywood ( OASIS ) is well worth a visit, please note though if you go in the week, there are not many options for eating there, although you can get, burgers etc. Will definatly return to Rambleside and recommend. Rebecca and Chris are very helpfull, and the pool is cleaned once a week.
I will have one moan if I may !!! The tiles around the pool are VERY slippy when wet, my 4 grandsons slipped on many occasions, and two of us adults took a tumble too, just be very cautious when walking around the pool wet.
