Overview

This sunshine yellow villa set against the glorious rusted backdrop of the Torcal Mountain range is a good choice for those seeking private pool holidays in the splendor of Andalusia.

Even though this property doesn’t hold the weight of history in its walls, or boast lavish luxury in every detail – it does not lack on good attention to detail either.

It is clean and comfortable with a hearty unpretentious vibe.

The partially landscaped gardens, 8 metre long pool, and spacious terrace feel truly removed from prying eyes, helped by the fact that this Spanish home is surrounded by an olive grove finca belonging to the property.

High fences, electronic gates, and uninterrupted views heighten the sense of seclusion.

Families with children will be glad to note that the pool is gated and those traveling in a group won’t find the outdoor area shy of space.

The grounds invite endless afternoons of splashing in the pool and barbequing beneath the shaded al fresco dining space.

Inside the villa you will find a neat little home spread across one floor, making it a solid choice for those with mobility difficulties.

Bedrooms boast viscoelastic mattresses and rolling blinds to encourage deliciously deep sleeps in the calm and quiet of the mountains.

The hydro massage bathtub is also wonderful for sinking into after a day walking around the regions impressive rock formations.

A kilometer or so away you will find the gentle village of La Joya, for those who enjoy robust daily walks you can go by foot.

Otherwise, the village bar and restaurants are an easy 5-minute drive.

The historic gem of Antequera is only 20 minutes away with its ancient moor castles, golden stone walls, and luminous cathedrals.

Those with a spirit of adventure can walk the infamous Caminito del Rey hailed as one of the scariest paths in the world.

Afterwards relax on Malaga’s soft beaches only an hour away.

Amanda | October | 2018

Lovely villa, spotlessly clean, remote with fantastic views. Car a must, and some lovely towns nearby to visit. Multiple towels provided, thank you. Beds comfortable. Kitchen had some herbs, oil, tea, coffee, sugar, cleaning products and refuge bags to get us started. Also a lovely welcome pack- bread, milk, fruit, yogurts, cakes and water, very appreciated as we arrived late. Only one negative - ceramic hob and was a bit tired, knobs not working properly. I would definitely recommend."

Nicola | July | 2018

What an amazing holiday. The Villa and pool were every bit as lovely as it looks in the photos. The setting is beautiful if you like a quiet get away. Antequera is well worth visiting on several occasions as it has so much to offer. If you are wanting to walk to the local village, I would not recommend, as although it is not far, the road is not safe to walk on ( this didn't matter to us). A very efficient and well communicated service from Carlos and his team at Rustical travel. Although Maria (housekeeper) did not speak English, we managed with my poor spanish and google translate! Many thanks"

Rustical Update

Although La Joya village is not far from the property, we don't consider it to be walking distance.

Paul | June | 2018

We spent twelve wonderful nights in this property, beautiful villa, fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. The road to the villa is an experience!! We ate in both local restaurants, both very good and reasonably priced. Antequerra is the nearest big town, well worth spending a few days exploring. Thanks to Maria and Juan for looking after us."

Catherine | August | 2017

We spent a fabulous week at the villa in August. The only criticism we had was about the toaster!!! Having two teenagers who wanted toast most mornings it Became somewhat of a trial to use the toaster provided! The villa is perfect, outside area exceptional. The rooms were very comfortable and both bathrooms perfect. Pool fabulous, used everyday! Would certainly return and also recommend to others. Remember to have basic Spanish phrases on arrival as the property manager has no English whatsoever. Luckily our daughter is studying Spanish at school and was able to translate. All in all a fabulous, relaxing time had by all. Thank you."

Rustical Update

The property manager informed us that she will examine the toaster to check if if works correctly.

Piet | July | 2017

We had a very nice stay at the home. Great pool and garden with a nice view! Its very quiet and private. The house is well equipped and clean. It is really a good place to stay. There is a lot to visit in the area. At night it was a bit difficult to sleep because of the heat! Maybe airco in the room?"

This is the second time we have used Rustical Travel and their customer service is first class. We were running a little late for our arrival time so phoned the number given for the owner but found she didn’t speak English and our Spanish is very limited. We called Rustical Travel who kindly acted as intermediary to pass the message on. The villa is in a beautiful quiet rural setting. If you’re looking for a secluded away from it all setting this is just perfect. The landscaped garden is lovely. 
We spent most of the time relaxing in glorious sunshine by the pool, which is a good size for a swim. No one to overlook us. The villa itself has everything needed for a comfortable stay including washing machine and dishwasher. 
 The welcome pack is very generous with milk, cheese, eggs, butter, jam, bread, cold meat, yogurt and fruit. The beds are also very comfortable and there is a good supply of towels and bedding which other villas tend to skimp on.
 The decor inside is a little tired looking, more old fashioned than rustic but acceptable. 
One thing I felt lacking was a welcome guest booklet giving some information on the villa and local area. 
 Rustical Travel do provide information on the surrounding area and directions but it’s nice to read a more personal welcome from an owner’s guidebook detailing recommended restaurants, shops, doctors, dentists and some general info on the villa such as where and when bins are emptied, WiFi password etc. 
 Out and about I’d recommend a visit to Villanueva de la Concepción not far from La Joya and the historic town of Antequera."

Derek | June | 2017

A truly secluded and private location. The villa is well equipped and offers excellent uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. An ideal romantic getaway for a couple or for a party of 4. Remember this is in rural Spain so you will need some language skills (even for the owner/key holder) to get the most out of your experience."

Andrea | April | 2017

The property was very clean and in a beautiful position. The only drawback was that when we arrived it was really cold and we were told we could make a fire which we did but the house then smelt terribly from the fire. The only other disadvantage was that the dishwasher did not seem to work in the sense that the filter seemed to be broken and the dishes came out dirtier than they went in. Other than that it was fine and would recommend this secluded position."

Rustical Update

The dishwasher filter was blocked, and it was fixed shortly after your departure.
