      “This place is just amazing!!! You need a car and a want for a place in the middle of nowhere and desire for absolute tranquility and you will be bowled over. The Villa is extremely well equipped and the maintenance team including "Antonio" could not do enough to make our stay perfect. I would recommend this place to anyone as long as you are not looking for something with easy walking access to shops and bars. A fantastic holiday !!! We will be back ...”

      Villa was very nice, location was great for us. The drive to the villa itself is off road for quarter of a mile, but its worth it when you arrive. Really enjoyed the holiday.

    • Mrs Mills, July 2012

      villa in very peaceful place, with beautiful views, but VERY STEEP tracks to access it & you do need a powerful car! Frigiliana lovely village & Nerja close for larger town.

    • Mr Izatt, October 2008

      Only comment or suggestion - We were advised to upgrade our car from the one provided with the booking by the rental company. This turned out to be good advice as access to the villa is very steep and rugged. We enjoyed the holiday very much and were sad to leave La Era. Even the villa owner visited use on a couple of occasions, one of his visits after a thunder storm to check that everything was OK.

      A holiday you can rely on. Good standards throughout ie. villas and organisation. A return customer loyalty bonus would be appreciated.

    • Mr Carrick, September 2007

      Overall, a lovely holiday - again, this is the third time we have used JVH, and will probably use again (other plans allowing). The Villa was quiet, peaceful, well located, and all run smoothly. Well done!

Kent Couple
Excellent surroundings. Peaceful and serene. Villa is great value for money. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet,relaxing holiday. The owner is on hand every day to check if there are any problems, we had none. Wi fi reception is very good. I would book again.

Rochdale Couple
The villa was all we hoped it would be. It is in a peaceful location very quiet and ideal if you are looking to get away from it all. Fabulous views surround the villa, lemon trees grow just by the villa perfect to add to your gin and tonic in the evening. I would highly recommend La Era as a great base. You can be in the beautiful town of Frigiliana a 10 minute drive away, where there are lots of restaurants to choose from and quaint cobbled streets to walk through. This town is said to be one of Spain's most beautiful and it's easy to see why.

Great place to chill and wind down.

Excellent villa within a superb setting but not a location for someone annoyed by the sound of dogs barking as this is pretty much constant.

Warwickshire Couple
Lovely quiet setting during day. However dogs barking close by all nights so had little sleep - which spoiled holiday. Track to villa very steep so need to advise car upgrade. Electricity kept cutting off - visited by owner twice who tried to explain what to do (did not speak English) we eventually worked it out but had to fiddle about with it several times daily.

Hereford Family (the eldest child is at school)
La Era is a great villa. The decor is very in keeping with a Spanish feel, the outside area is brilliant for eating outside whilst looking at the mountains, and the pool was a great addition to keep the kids happy and to cool off after a day at the beach. Some reviews discuss the road to the villa, it is steep but any villa off the main road in a rural situation in this area would have a similar approach.
