Ideal location for climbing - good service at a reasonable price
Left on 04/22/2012 for a stay in April 2012 | bigseceret
I have nothing but good things to say about this villa and the owners. Through bad planning on my behalf we arranged to arrive on a Sunday forgetting that, outside of the tourist areas, Spain is closed on a Sunday. I called Eryl on Saturday afternoon to confirm arrival times etc, she reminded me that the supermarkets would be closed and offered to get some shopping in for us that afternoon so we'd have food for dinner and breakfast. The property and it's grounds are bigger than anywhere we've stayed before and the younger (under 30) members of our group enjoyed the table tennis and badminton facilities whilst complaining it was too cold in april to use the lovely pool. On our return home my son discovered that he'd left his wallet, bank debit card and DS in the draw in one of the bedrooms, we contacted Eyrl and the items were back with us before the end of the week. Casa Elanor and the other properties in the village are ideal for climbing trips to El Chorro and the surrounding crags although you will definitely need a car. On one wet day we visited the local caves and I would recommend them to anyone provided you are reasonable fit and mobile. We stayed at another of Eryl's properties last year but needed a bigger place this year. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others and will be returning.
