Gorgeous villa with everything you need

Rob & Hilary strike the perfect balance between being on hand when you need them and leaving you to it.


This was a family get together of all ages

The house is perfect for us, lots of space, well equipped & lots of design character.

Spectacular villa and terrific hosts!

  Our stay at Casa Belmonte was, without a doubt, the best vacation of our lives. Admittedly, this is in large part because we stayed for the occasion of our wedding, and used the house to host a "Paella Pool Party" the night before we married at a nearby hotel. But it's also a tribute to the amazingly beautiful and well appointed villa and to the graciousness of the hosts. Rob and Hilary, who also served as the five star chefs for our party. We were surprised to find that the home itself actually exceeded the beauty of the photos on the website. We left the place reluctantly, and trying to imagine how we could find a way to relocate to this beautiful part of the world. We will never forget our stay at Casa Belmonte, and hope we will return, perhaps for an anniversary!

We thoroughly love this place. The house is beautifully decorated, comfortable and homely and has a real unique quality as old and  traditional mixes with new and funky. The view is breathtaking,  especially when lying back in the pool with a cocktail in hand! This  is the ideal place to kick back, relax and do absolutely nothing in,  which is exactly what we did during our stay. Perfect!

This was a family get together of all ages, three generations. The house is perfect for us, lots of space, well equipped & lots of design character. Plus a fabulous location. Thanks Rob & Hilary, especially for the great food you cooked for us last Saturday ( 30th birthday!). Everyone is keen to come back!

Well, what can we say? We’ve had such a fantastic holiday in every way it’s difficult to know where to start. Rob & Hilary have been the perfect hosts, providing such kind hospitality, a beautiful environment and five star foos ( recommended!). It’s been difficult to leave casa belmonte because we’ve all been chilling out so much either in the pool, playing table tennis or on the roof terrace – wow, at 4am fantastic! The kids loved feeding the hens and collecting eggs to eat. Many, many thanks – we’ll be back!

What a great holiday! Everything is perfect – the pool, bedrooms, kitchen, table tennis and pool table on the roof terrace. We couldn’t go to a better villa!

Fabulous holiday! Views just the best ever! When we weren’t lounging at the pool we spent time at the lake learning to windsurf – thoroughly recommended

This without doubt the most beautiful villa we have stayed in. Everything was explained to us on arrival and from then on we have lived in harmony. We are here for a friends wedding and it has definitely made the trip even more special. Beautiful, unique features at casa belmonte, breathtaking views, friendly chickens ( and delicious eggs) and the joy of swimming in the lit pool at night has resulted in an unforgettable holiday with lovely people. Thankyou Rob & Hilary

I really enjoyed all the swallows dipping in the pool and the chickens.

Thankyou for a wonderful week. The house is magical with space for everyone to do their own thing...

Beautiful house. We’ve really enjoyed the peace and quiet up in the mountains, the sound of goats bells jingling every day and the lovely outdoor spaces for relaxing and taking in the amazing views. This time of year has been especially scenic with the fields all around awash with wild flowers. Thankyou!
