This was our second visit having stayed here in 2010 and we managed to reunite the entire family again plus three more grandchildren! The villa and surrounding area are as spectacular as ever and we have some more treasured memories to take home with us.
It was truly a pleasure to stay in a holiday villa so well stocked with home essentials and Anne and Bill's thoughtfulness was much appreciated.
Maria looked after us very well and was always available, if not in person then on the phone, to give us advice on where to eat, shop etc. Nothing was too much trouble for her.
We had a lovely time and hope to repeat the experience at some time in the future. Only sorry we didn't get to see Anne and Bill.

Our second visit to the villa, was as great as the first.
The villa is wonderful, even more seating areas have been added than last year. Maria was there to welcome us and be at our beacon call throughout the stay, with the few little niggles that arose during the stay.
The house is designed to make you instantly feel at home, with comfortable interiors and a very relaxing exterior. Paella ring and various bbqs were used every evening!
The 'lakeside' in the title I fear is now slightly misleading and the lake is shrinking and the lake is now a 20 minute cross country mountain bike ride away.
Another great holiday, thank you Bill, Anne and Maria
What can we say - we are 3 families who have been away for the past 6 years together, but this year the property has exceeded all expectations, the photo's do not do this property justice - you do not need to leave this place, it has everything. Mark & Maria have been so helpful and even insisted on making me Paella for my Birthday, nothing was too much trouble for them. Again thank you Bill & Anne your home is amazing, we do not normally return to a property - but we will be back next year!!!!

Wow - that was our first impression. A group of 14 of us arrived at Manquillo at we were greeted with prosecco and olives by the stunning pool area and we could't believe we were getting to stay there. As we looked around the outside, there are tables and relaxing areas everywhere, in shade or in sun. The interior of the house has an equal wow factor - something you don't always get with these villa. This is all without even mentioning the view and the setting!!
The house has everything you could want and need. Plenty of toiletries, linens, towels and the kitchen utensils and fit are enviable. We BBQ'ed most nights and used the paella ring to make a delicious paella, set off nicely by the lemons that grow on the trees on the property.
Couldn't recommend this villa more - we are already trying to book it again. We were so well looked after the whole time by Mark and Marie.
I don't often feel driven to write reviews of villas as the pictures usually do justice to their environment, however this is one occasion where they truly fail to convey how lovely the setting and villa are.
Maria and Mark were incredibly warm and helpful on our arrival and throughout the 9 days we spent here. The house is clearly a home designed with fun in mind from the mini-tennis court to pool, kayaks and grounds. The fact that the owners Bill and Anne live there most of the year makes for a very warm environment compared to the sterility of some rental villas. There are poolside bars, multiple eating areas, and a barbeque that would happily grace most American backyards. A library, outside bar area, flourishing lemon trees and well-stocked kitchen were just some of the highlights.
We had a fantastic time and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to escape from the stresses of life, but close enough to amenities that you never felt cut off. A car is a must, and one with a decent tyres is sensible due to the track that leads to the property! But that's no complaint, just an observation.
Thanks again to all of you - we would definitely come back.
It's difficult to summarise this luxury villa, simply because words can't explain how amazing it is. The photos and reviews are great, but until you actually visit, you can't appreciate the beauty and absolute perfection of this villa. To be honest, I don't want too many people to find out about it, as I may not be able to get a week in the future!!
This was our second visit, 2 weeks this time round, as we were 'gutted' to leave after a week last time (2012), two families with 5 children between us from 14 months to 8 yrs. When we managed to get them out of the pool, there was plenty of entertainment, from tennis, basketball, boules, craft barn, hot tub.......to playing hide and seek in the extensive gardens. Or just simply relax and ask one of the kids to pick you some fresh fruit from the gardens! Night time entertainment around the bar can be quiet and cosy looking at the stars or create your own kids disco, and don't worry about the neighbours as your completely private!!
The days are very hot, but we ventured out onto the lake with the traditional style canoe. Our property manager Mark even took it down to the lakeside for us! Mark and Maria were always easily contactable should a problem occur, but we used them mainly for advice on the surrounding towns and markets, very friendly and great hosts.
If your considering a villa in this area, then look no further, you will not be disappointed. Only 20 mins from the coast and Aqua parcs should you wish to venture out, but this is a lakeside villa in the rolling mountains which you simply won't want to leave!! Thank you Bill & Ann and once again thank you Mark and Maria x
