Couple from London, United Kingdom Jun 2014

Id highly recommend the house for walkers. We had a lovely break & thoroughly enjoyed drinking a glass of wine overlooking the Poqueria valley- its stunning.

Would like to say that I was positively satisfied when I arrived at this property.
Perfect size for a couple and is exactly what it looks like on the website. The view was fantastic and an added bonus having a fire place for the month of December (when we went). The location, again perfect. Just a stroll into the small town of Bubion... and if you like a short hike up & downhill, the other two villages above and below it are within a couple of miles walking distance.

The place was clean, tidy and we were made to feel very welcome!
The perfect place to stay to feel like you are one of the locals.
Had a great time, thank you9

From Halifax, United Kingdom Oct 2007

The property is well situated, with great views over the valley. It was clean and well equipped, and was perfect for the two of us.

From London, United Kingdom Mar 2007

The apartment is lovely, very well designed having a stylish, comfy and romantic feel. The beautiful vista is spoiled a little by litter and rubbish in the field outside the apartment.

Helen unfortunately stayed after a few days of windy weather where litter had blown into the field. The field is usually spotless as the farmers goats often graze there.

The location was great. Great views. The town Bubion and the surrounding countryside was a treat.

Unfortunately, the apartment was a little shabby. It started at the front door which was dirty. The first thing we did was sweep the mouse (?) dro ppings away from the front door. All the windows were dirty.

Every door in the place grabbed on the floor or door jam. After 5 days that wears a bit thin. The place could do with a handyperson for a few days.

There was a smell I couldnt trace. I tried to keep the bathroom door shut thinking it was coming from the toilet, but it couldnt be closed from the outside.

The first time I had a shower I threw my dirty clothes on the floor. When I picked them up to take them outside they were covered with dust and hair.

The old TV could only pick up one scratchy channel.
