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.

Wow wow wow! We stayed here with my teenage children for 9 nights this August. The villa was superb and the kids spent most of their time in the pool playing volleyball. The villa was clean and well equipped, with extra touches like books, DVDs and board games for when you need some respite from the heat. There is ample parking, with gates to secure the plot, plenty of terrace space and pool loungers. The pool was clean and a good temperature to cool off in. The air conditioning in the villa worked very well, which was a blessing given it was between 34c and 37c every day we were there. Whilst the villa is in a small cluster of houses, it isnt overlooked at all and feels very private with the bonus of neighbours near by if there is a problem. The views of the mountains were stunning and it is peaceful and quiet. The only people we saw were the occasional dog walker once the sun went down. I was worried it wouldnt be as good as the photos but it really was even better. I have stayed in 5* hotels around the world and several holiday villas, châteaus and farmhouses and I cant praise this villa enough! If you are looking for a high quality villa, with peace and quiet, then look no further. We noted a couple of things which we felt would be useful at the villa, It would be great if pool towels were available, we didnt realise they werent until we read the information pack on arrival and also it would be safer to have plastic beer and wine glasses for around the terrace/pool area. That said, these are just little observations, and you really cant fault this place, it is everything described on here and more. We are already trying to work out when we can go back there which is a first as we usually like to try somewhere different each year! Any chance of a volleyball net for the pool next year please?

After becoming tired of the same hotels and the noisy/unruly families that occupy such places, we finally decided to book a villa. We had never booked a villa prior to this but this villa seemed in a great location, had all the facilities we needed and was within our budget. The villa was as advertised and was clean, fresh and had all mod cons. You definitely need a car to access the villa but you are made aware of this prior to booking. We had a fantastic 10 days and was very relaxing and peaceful. The area is also good for people who like running/cycling as there is a dry river bed at the back of the villa and more hills than you could wish for.

Thats two years in a row now, First was fantastic second even better! Reason being,more familiar with the area.Peace perfect peace and still close enough to the coastal resorts and some fantastic beaches.After more than ten years of great villa holidays on the costas and Balearics.I cant recommend this villa highly enough. The experience was also made easier by the helpful Rebecca welcoming us and seeing us safely on our way and Chris the pool cleaner, lovely people.

ian and daughter georgina from Essex, this was one of the best villas I have stayed in in the past 10 years, it was modern and clean with the most awesome backdro p of mountains. if you are looking for relaxing and unwinding in a holiday then this is the place. ok you do need a car and have to travel if you want to go anywhere but the roads were very good and well sign posted (unlike England). the pool and outside areas were excellent and gave you perfect sun bathing or shade from the sun, whatever you required it was there. want to go again. thankyou

The villa was as lovely as we expected. If you like a quiet, get away from it all, holiday, then this is the place for you. The setting is very picturesque, with a spectacular view, from the pool, of an orange grove and mountains in the background. The only things to disturb the peace are the birds during the day, and the crickets at night.

We have had another fabulous holiday at this beautiful villa! The level of cleanliness of both the villa and large pool is exceptional - it is stocked with everything you need, nicely furnished, great quality kitchen ware, first aid, holiday essentials left by previous visitors, Sky TV, DVDs, books, pool toys, superb barbecue etc....we were able to relax very quickly into our one week stay. The villa is positioned in a gorgeous location, tranquil and a taste of luxury. We were blessed with great weather and spectacular sunsets. The housekeeper Rebecca was friendly, attentive and was prompt on our arrival and departure. You definitely need a keen driver in your party as we flew into Alicante. Trips out to Mojacar and Almeria were a treat. Shopping best at Albox...lots of choice and well stocked supermarkets. Hope we have opportunity to visit again...missing the pool already!! Thank you x

This was our third consecutive holiday at this villa however this year we were very disappointed. On our arrival we found the dishwasher wasnt working. We reported this to the housekeeper the following day but received no response, so the next day we text again. The housekeeper came to the villa to measure up for a new dishwasher but was told a new dishwasher would be ordered but probably wouldnt be here before our holiday finished in 12 days time. The other problem we encountered and more of an issue was wasps. We were plagued with wasps from day one, again we reported this to the housekeeper who told us the property next door had a problem with several wasps nests in their roof. We spoke with the neighbours who told they had sorted the wasps nest on their property and the issue was on our property and that the owner of our villa knew that there was a problem as he had only left the day before we arrived. We again spoke with the housekeeper as we had seen wasps going into the roof spaces on our villa. The housekeeper came to the property and told us that there wasnt any pest control companies in the area, and it wasnt their job do deal with such things, but she had spoken with the owner who had told her to give us a can of wasp killer! My partner went onto the lower roof area and sprayed where we had seen the wasps entering, about 50-100 wasps came out and died. We then had to go out and spend another 60 euros on wasp killer and spray the rest of the roof where we could reach. This didnt solve the problem and we were still plagued by the wasps. I got stung once whilst in the pool and my dad twice whilst lying on a sun lounger.. My son and daughter hardly ventured outside for fear of being stung. We couldnt relax and constantly had fly swats in our hands. I fully understand that wasps can occur anywhere, but I was more annoyed that the owner and housekeeper didnt seem to care about the issue and expected us to deal it.. I have in the past recommended this villa to friends, however after the lack of customer service this year I would not recommend it.
Owner reply:

It's unfortunate you didn't enjoy your stay and despite having my contact details you never once contacted me while you were at the villa to raise any concerns. if there were issues then there is little we can do after the event to put things right. We stayed at the villa with our family 2 days prior to your arrival and everything was fine.we have gone out of our way over the years to meet your specific requests which included providing a microwave even though the villa has advertise as not having one and also providing additional seating so it unfortunate that you feel you did not get good service.we have had over 50 guests stay at the property with a number of repeat booking and never had a complaint.Thanks

The villa was better than expected, Mike was extremely helpful, and was at hand if & when we needed him, the area was lovely and quiet, only down side were the flies!, which couldnt be helped, would definitely go there again, couldnt find a fault, well worth it and was probably our best holiday x

The villa was as discribed, very well equipped and nice location. The only problem we had was with the electrics when we first arrived but the owner and cleaner sorted everything out as fast as possible, even offered to put us up in a B&B overnight until it was put right.

Lovely villa and a great peaceful location. The pool was fantastic and our two children never came out of it! We had great days out to the Water Park in Vera, Garrucha, Cela and Mogacar which could all be reached in about 40 minutes. The Tapas Bar Paladares near the community swimming pool in Arboleas was great and we would definitely recommend. One of the best holidays we have had!

A beautiful, quiet location far enough from the main tourist areas without being too far away from beaches, restaurants and interesting days out. Chris dealt with any issues promptly and was available for general advice and recommendations. The villa itself is nicely decorated and filled with high quality furniture and fittings with everything you could need. I would definitely go again and recommend to a friend.

We have had the most wonderful holiday at this spectacular villa. The location is so private and you quickly surrender to the peace and beauty of your surroundings. The property is immaculate and has a fabulous large, clean pool which we enjoyed every blissful day. Unfortunately our teenage son was taken ill whilst we were on our holiday ...fortunately Chris was there he became a very supportive friend to the whole family and we would have been lost without him. We have all come home feeling re-charged and envious of the next family who take temporary residence at Rambleside....you lucky people!

Enjoyed a wonderful two weeks,the villa lived up to all our expectations.A superb and special location.Peaceful, but with the car close enough to the towns and the coast with all the amenities you would expect.Rebecca was there when we arrived gave us all the info required .Didnt see her till the Saturday mornings, when she and Chris called to clean the pool and check everything was okay.The only complaint was having to leave.Would love to return some day.

This is the second time we have booked the villa and where so glad that we did . We wanted a peacefull week in the sunshine, and had taken family member who is quite poorly to relax and recharge. They where not dissapointed.

Fantastic villa with high standard of furniture and fittings. Secure patio/garden appreciated. Pool freezing but once weather warmed up to above 25 degrees we were hot enough to use it comfortably. Too cold for youngest son (17months) to use but to be expected in May. Nice drive up into the moutains to get to villa and whilst the villa is surrounded by lots of other villas, this does not compromise the privacy. Arboleas provides all the essentials and we loved Bar Campillo for tapas at the bottom of the hill. Wonderful holiday.

We had only stayed in Almeria once before and then on the coast. This villa is situated some 30 minutes from the coast in a small village. It enjoys an incredible view of sloping hills where the only disturbance is the occasional tinkle of goat bells as the herder moves them off the hills. The villa is nicely appointed and we had absolutely no problems and enjoyed a relaxing 8 days there.

Excellent well appointed property with fantastic views over the mountains. The property is well equipped with everything you could need. The open plan living space is fantastic reating a real family atmosphere in the house. My 3 year old daughted loved splashing about in the pool, and the english sky TV came in very handy! We had a wonderful holiday

We had high expectations of this property from the photos we saw - its far exceeded them. We just wanted a chill out holiday for 2 weeks and we got it. Boys loved the pool and all the grounds and we loved the fact that they were safe - pool is gated and not too deep. Chris and Gail were stars - willing to pass on all their wisdom - Chris actually met us at the local supermarket on the first day and escorted us to the villa. David was great with help before we flew. I really cannot recommend this villa high enough.

We totally loved this villa, the location was exceptional....I found myself just staring at the views from the patio. Very high quality fixtures and fittings, tastefully decorated. The pool was incredible.....it was absolute heaven.... I would also highly recommend moveable feasts - Chris can cook one wicked paella, and its all done in the comfort of the villa. There is also an excellent indian restaurant nearby which is well worth a few visits. For those into bird watching, take your binoculars...(my husband spotted some Bonellis Eagles). All in all, an unforgettable break !!
The villa was absolutely fantastic – thank you so much! Chris and Gail were fantastic and such lovely people, it was great to have a point of contact and they made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. You are very lucky to have such a wonderful villa at your disposal – we have told everyone about it and been directing them all to your website.
