We had a wonderful week in Casa del Medico. As a party of 8 (4 adults, 4 children), we found the house extremely spacious and could spread ourselves out completely. The interior of the house is pleasantly decorated and reflects the fact that this is a much loved family home. The kitchen is very well equipped and there were numerous bath/shower rooms. Outside, the garden is just brilliant - having the large swimming pool fenced off meant that we could relax and know that the kids were safe when they were outside. It is a little shady in the pool area but that is probably good news in high summer when temperatures are even higher. The garden area goes all around the house and provides a huge space to play games. We also made good use of the table tennis table, the bikes and the fabulous terrace area.London 30/05/2016
The house is a 10 minute walk from the beach, which is an absolutely lovely one with long stretches of golden sand and very few people (I assume it becomes more crowded during the summer season). There are also great tennis courts a short walk/bike ride away, which we made good use of, plus a decent children's playground, shop and cafe.
Roche is a 15 minute drive to Conil, which is a lovely Spanish seaside town with relatively few tourists. There are plenty of excellent restaurants and bars plus a fantastic beach. There are also good restaurants closer to home, which Andrew, the property manager, can tell you all about.
Andrew provides an extremely pleasant and efficient management service for Casa del Medico and other houses in the Roche area. The only minor issues we had (replacement of a few lightbulbs and provision of extra tea towels) were sorted out very quickly and he was always on hand to provide recommendations and book tennis courts for us etc.
I throughly recommend Casa del Medico. As other reviewers have commented, it isn't absolutely modern and pristine like some other houses in Roche, but with young children around, that's perfect for us and we spent most of our time outside enjoying the garden.
