Hello, my name is Rachel and I own Casa Mariposa. Although British, I amnow based in Singapore. Over the years, I've stayed in many different holiday homes in many different countries and for my property, I wanted to provide something that really worked - both for us and our visitors. We believed we've created a home from home and have had many compliments on it. If you choose to stay there, I hope you will very much enjoy your stay - I always enjoy visiting the villa myself.
Rachel purchased this villa in 2005
Why Rachel chose Alcalali
I bought Casa Mariposa early in 2005. Despite visiting other areas of Spain I always found myself drawn back to the valley and after a whole year of searching, I finally found what I was looking for. I love the location - quiet and private yet not isolated and, of course, the wonderful views across the valley. I can't imagine how many hours I've spent on the naya just watching the light change as the sun moves round! I love the late afternoon and evening when the low light creates the most magical glow on the many white painted farmhouses and the villages below us. Furnishing the house from a range of local shops, was a real pleasure. I wanted to provide comfort and simplicity but with a homely feel too. and believe that has been achieved.
What makes this villa unique
The valley has everything I wanted to make a great family holiday. There's plenty in the region to keep us all entertained. Then afterwards, nothing beats returning to the peace and tranquility of the the villa and dinner on the naya or maybe a local restaurant. Then, of course, there are the hours we've spent lazing in the pool on a hot summer afternoon. Having children of our own, we have installed gates around the pool terrace to give parents of young children peace of mind so youngsters can play away from the pool. I've equipped it with everything you should need and am often complimented on this. In Casa Mariposa, I really feel I've found somewhere special - it's always hard to leave and we have many returning guests who have fallen in love with it too.
