Vidiya was such a gracious host, he shared beverages, and snacks with us over some lovely chats. The apartment is very cozy and has a wonderful bed and shower. It's a lovely property and I highly recommend staying here!

Vidiya was a great host, he came to pick us up from the entrance to the town at 10pm and took us to the markets the next day (sunday), pointing out some of the better vendors. We also offered to take us up into the mountains. The place itself was so relaxing and well setup with breakfast. We wish we had booked another few days to relax there.

Vidiya and Bernie were lovely hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our week in Albatera. They invited us into their home to watch movies and offered us fruit from their orchards. We couldn't ask for a warmer welcome! The apartment is clean and modern with a small kitchen and heat pump which is great in the colder months. One important thing to note is that the wifi does not reach the apartment. The signal is only available around the main house. There is a great terrace for sunbathing, Albatera is an easy drive away, and Pyter Pan bakery in town has amazing donuts! We would definitely stay here again if we return to Albatera.

Amazing week in the sun! Honestly couldn't have asked for a nicer host or a nicer setting. It's the perfect distance for day trips to Murcia, Guadalest, Alicante and probably a few further afield if you're not as lazy as us! The town of albatera itself doesn't have a huge amount going on but has everything you need and a few nice places to have a coffee and breakfast. Vidiya was an excellent tour guide and showed us the local Sunday market where we ate churros and bought Spanish roasted chicken...he took us on a beautiful early morning walk to see saltwater pools hidden in the hills, and the unique 'ventanos' rock formations with incredible views down to the sea ...and gave us recommendations on what to do nearby, and he cooked the most incredible Sri Lankan meal for us on our final night. The place itself is gorgeous, small but true to the pictures, comfy bed, good air-con (which you'll need in summer!!) reliable wifi, kitchen and amazing pool. We had a wonderful week here and both felt properly rested when we returned to London , would highly recommend and will be back! Thanks! :)

Firstly it was a real pleasure to meet Vidiya. A gentleman, good company and very helpful. The accommodation is a good, compact, nice bed and bathroom. Internet is fast and reliable. The pool is great and in the summer in this area of Spain you will need it. Very nice stay thank you.

This is a lovely apartment with everything you need. Vidiya was a great host, very helpful and he went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed, including advice on what to see and do in the area. One thing to be aware of is that this is not really a mountain retreat as such. It is inland and relatively close to the hills, but it is on flat land. It does have nice mountain views though, and also distant views to the sea.

We had 4 nights in Vidiya and Bernies "self contained mountain retreat" and it sure was a mountain retreat! The surroundings was absolutely amazing and the hospitality was beyond our wildest expectations. Vidiya and Bernie were both very helpful with informations about nearby sights/towns/beaches etc. Vidiya even spent some of his time to give a private guided tour in the mountains while Bernie had prepared the fridge with some basic groceries including the loveliest homemade apricot jam as we arrived on a Sunday. If you need relaxation and quietness and the chance to visit the beautiful mountains and some small local towns and beaches within driving distance, we will highly recommend a stay at Vidiya and Bernies place. We will love to come back one day.
