When I was younger I remember going to Spain a lot with my family and my aunt's family, as it wasn't too expensive and it was nice to get away from the usually cold British air every once in a while. We would sometimes go into hotels, but usually we would stay in Villa's.
There was this one time when I was about eight years old, we decided to go on holiday again. This Villa was a small cottage, with a big swimming pool in the back garden. I remember there was a small kitchen, bathroom and a lounge. Four bedrooms, one for me and my cousin who are roughly the same age, one for my two older brothers, one for my parents, and a room for my aunty and uncle. There was one single bed in the rooms, a wardrobe, and a big window. So now that's out the way I can get into the story.
The first time I saw the house I really didn't like it. It was creepy looking and it gave off a horrible feeling, almost like something was telling me to go away. The rooms in the house were dark and everything just seemed weird. So anyway as soon as we got there we decided to have a swim. The back garden seemed eerie, and I just didn't like the look of the pool but everybody seemed to be getting in so I just decided to myself. I was soon splashing around and I almost forgot the whole creepiness of the house until I looked up at the window were my room was and saw a tall dark shadow just standing there looking down at me. I thought maybe it was my parents or something, but looking around I realized everyone was outside. I was just about to get out the pool when I felt a massive tug at my feet, I tried to swim to the side but I just couldn't. I looked around but nobody seemed to notice my struggle. I struggled for what seemed like ages until I was pulled right down into the water. My family must have noticed because I felt strong arms pulling me out of the water and onto land. I was crying and seriously thought I was going to die. When I looked down at my legs, there were red handprint marks were "something" had pulled me under. After that incident I wasn't allowed to go in the pool again, but after that I seriously didn't care.
The next thing which happened took place at night. I was sleeping in bed with my cousin, when we woke up suddenly to a massive thud coming from the roof. The next thing I hear is everyone talking and getting out of bed to investigate. Me and my cousin got out of bed and followed everyone else. My dad quickly got a knife out of the cutlery draw and slowly went outside. We looked onto the roof nobody there. We looked out onto the street which was deserted. We went back inside and investigate. Me being tired decided to make my way back to bed. Just as I walked into the room I noticed the same figure that I saw in the pool. It stood there looking at me then gave me a horrifying look. I can't really explain it but it really scared me. I couldn't seem to move or scream for help. I gave all my strength and eventually screamed as loud as I could. Everyone came rushing in, still looking for the "burglar", but instead saw me standing there just looking at the wall where I saw the ghost. Everyone just looked at me like I was crazy.
Just as we were about to leave (thank god) we decided to go on the internet. We were looking at villas and came across ours. We decided to read some of the comments that previous holiday makers had written. It said something along the lines of, "I have been in this property and have reported seeing a weird figure in one of the bedrooms that just stares there looking at you, whether your in the room or not". And one comment about feeling creeped out in the pool, and even hearing piercing screams from the garden late at night. I think I experienced some of these things in that house. My parents just laughed and shrugged it off though. So could this Spanish Villa really have been haunted and if so what were they and why were they there?
