Gorgeous olive trees and beautiful meadows, filled with wild flowers, surround the villa.

Decorated with pretty flowers, such as jasmine, as well as grapevines it is magnificent utterly picturesque. There is also a lovely enclosed courtyard, which soaks up all of the sun. On top of this is a breakfast and dining terrace, with an impressive Moroccan mosaic table, accessed through French doors from the living room.

Alex says...
"Just back from a wonderful week at Villa Amapola - two adults and three kids aged 10, 10 and 8. We all loved it. The villa is everything you could want. Shane and Bea are great hosts. We had a good mix of chilling by the pool and adventuring nearby. Don't hesitate to book."

Leisha says...
"We had a lovely week at Amapola - the house is spacious, clean and cosy...and cool in the hot Spanish sun and the pool where we spent the majority of our time had a beautiful view, comfortable loungers and shade during the midday heat. What more could you ask for?!
We thoroughly enjoyed lazy days by the pool and evenings on the terrace and would highly recommend."
