Villa Margarita is in the sub-hills above Antigua and below the hills approaching Betancuria. Apart from a few houses around the valley above Valle de Santa Ines it is completely away from fit all - on what we would call lanes in UK, which lead to a cul de sac. No through traffic, road or pedestrian, tarmac to within a hundred metres and no problems with access. And yet it is still only 3 or 4 minutes drive from bars and a basic shop in the village and then very close to the road network giving quick access to explore the whole island. Antigua supermarket is about 10 minutes.
As a hostess Alejandra is extremely attentive and helpful. Responds immediately by email to every enquiry prior to booking, is always available on the phone and there each day to feed the animals just above (hens, ducks, cats, couple of goats and sheep, donkey) some of which do wander about, but don't bother you near the house if you don't want them too. The animal area is accessed without going near or within sight of the house, so no disturbance.
The furniture inside and outside is all new and excellent quality (including beds). As is the sitting area next to the pool - there are 2 other sitting areas with good quality furniture beside the house.
Power is by solar and wind - supplemented in the case of hot water in winter by a boiler - there was loads of very hot water. Cooker is by gas bottle and in case of a winter evening chill Alejandra has installed a pellet stove to warm the lounge if required - 2 weeks before our visit due to the cooler weather in the Canaries this winter. This is very quick and easy and can be put if required.
We explored the whole island easily and if you really want to stay in the country away from those mass resorts and don't mind a few animals out the back - this is the place for you on Fuerteventura!
