Having spent a large part of the new year searching for a villa, we stumbled across Villa Blanca. Initial impressions led me to wrongly believe it would be out of out price range - the pictures are stunning. Cue rapid deposit placing and email interrogation (all answered within 24 hours) prior to exited planning and preparation. Are there pool toys? (yes) does it have a hair dryer (two) Important questions.
Moving swiftly to our arrival after a sticky 4 hour transfer (our choice to go for budget air option which landed us in Madrid) we were met by Bianca and given a guided tour, complete with iced beverages and homemade coconut and cardoman cake...deelish. Firstly, the pictures DO NOT do this place justice. It is simply stunning...amazing......beautiful. The garden is complete with pool, loungers, hammock, views, sun, barbecue, bodego (wine cellar to us Brits), more terraces than i care to remember and table options to keep you entertained all week. Inside is equally as attractive although the only time actually spent indoors involved either sleeping or showering. Having 4 self confessed foodies amongst the group - the other two were 3 and 5 - we were delighted to discover a kitchen full of knick knacks from gagetry to left over spices...it had everything! Not to be left out of the equation, the children rarely left the pool, swapping briefly to the hammock for a quick chill before once again leaping into the tepid water. To give the negatives, we went during an abnormally warm week with temperatures rarely dro pping below 30 degrees and sleeping was uncomfortable with most of the party having to shower during the night in order to keep cool. (One room does have air conditioning) Also, take a good insect repellent. The window do have mosquito nets on but we were careless during the evening an a couple of determined creatures made their way in through the patio doors and dined on 6 unsuspecting guests during the night.
All in all, an excellent villa. Very quiet and secluded yet only a 10 minute drive to the beach. Would i return? Hell yes!
