Overview

Sweet oranges from Sevilla, white sand beaches of Malaga, and the flamenco sounds of Granada – this pretty family villa is well within striking distance of them all.

Set against a mountainous alpine backdrop, life in this holiday home is all about disconnecting from the outside world and getting back to nature. In the spring the fields run rampant with flowers.

The outside space of the villa invites al fresco living with beautiful privacy at every turn and Mediterranean flora in full bloom.

The generous gated 7-meter pool always seems inviting, with its D shaped steps and ladder.

The pool bar, barbeque area and loungers offer a great attractive space for sipping afternoon cocktails in the sun and grilling fish from the village.

The furnished porch is also a peaceful spot for lingering evening meals, especially as you can enjoy olive grove views. The outside space truly is a highlight of this property.

Moving inside and the home seems perfectly put together for a family. As the house is spread across one level it may also suit some guests with reduced mobility.

Bright and spacious décor offer functional living spaces, with three bedrooms.

The master bedroom is the superior of the three boasting ensuite facilities and king size bed.

The twin room is good for children, or if traveling with another couple – the beds can be pushed together.

Even though the property is perched in the Andalusian nature – the house still offers Wi-Fi for those who don’t want to fully tune out.

This house is a true find for those who want an easy, convenient and comfortable escape to the sun.

You can even park your car right beside the kitchen, making loading and unloading a breeze when you have been to market.

Le Joya village can be found just under 2 kilometers away. While it isn’t exactly a short stroll, it is scenic and shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes.

The traditional Spanish village offers a couple of restaurants and a small supermarket.

For those who prefer to stay local there are some great day trips close by. The Caminito Del Rey that crosses the El Chorro Gorge is a must for adventure seekers.

The 7 km stretch of path is pinned to the side of the gorge, offering heart stopping views of the turquoise waters 100ft below.

Visitors looking for a softer stroll can hike through the limestone rock formations at the Torcal Mountains.

Lesley | July | 2019

The whole experience from booking to been in the villa was amazing everything was perfect the views the villa very spacies and well equipped the pool was a good size and cleaned often very good for any family all I will say a car is needed for most shops"

Alan | June | 2019

Lovely villa with all the facilities you need for a perfect break. Amazing views and a secluded location."

Jonathan | June | 2019

We had a lovely stay here - the views were simply stunning with a gorgeous pool to relax by. The villa was clean, well apportioned and the host, Maria and her husband very helpful. The location is beautifully rural with the delightful town of Antequera just 30 minute drive from the villa. This is, of course, the Spanish countryside and while we accept there will be some barking dogs at night time there were some occasions when the noise seemed incessant. As someone has mentioned previously, the access to the property is via a very steep driveway so we would advise prospective visitors to consider hiring a car with a powerful engine or a 4 x 4. This is a lovely villa in a gorgeous location and had it not been for the noise of the dogs we would consider staying there again."

Rustical Update

Although the access track to this property is more or less steep, it is short, and the times we visited the property we didn't consider that a 4x4 was necessary. We recommend a car with reasonable power engine. As per the dogs, the property manager confirmed at the end of June 2019 that she has already sorted this out with the neighbours.

Jane | June | 2019

Waking up to the view every morning helps you to breathe again. I am home but think about different parts of our stay every day as a mini mindfulness session. Absolutely secluded. Breakfast just looking at the view in piece. Swimming when needing to cool or have exercise and fun. Clean Villa and a friendly, willing to please host/owner. Three weeks of rural honest Spain. (Ps Delicious local goats cheese). Came home feeling we had chosen completely the right place for us. If you are looking for an escape like we were.. don’t hesitate. I’m fussy too!"

David | May | 2019

We spent a very pleasant week at this very clean, comfortable and, apart from the rather dangerous toaster, well-equipped villa. The outside area is attractive - especially the pool area - and there are great views towards the coast. The lower part of the steep access drive is bumpy and quite difficult, even in first gear, and could do with repairing. The surrounding area is interesting to explore by car and there is a pleasant, welcoming bar/restaurant in the nearby village serving generous, good-value meals. You should, however, be sure to stock-up at a supermarket on the way, if arriving at a weekend, as there is no welcome pack."

Rustical Update

Although the manager confirmed that the access is a bit steep, it is easily manageable. As per the toaster, it works fine, but it is not the typical toaster which you put the bread inside; it is one of those where the bread is placed outside, on both exterior sides of the machine, so the hot areas are out in the open and need to be operated more carefully than a regular toaster.

This was a great villa for a couple who wanted to get away from it all! The villa itself was secluded and private but in a great location for easy access to a range of places in the Malaga province, as well as the provinces to the north. The villa was well equipped and very comfortable. The views from the front porch were amazing. We loved watching and listening to the goats on the hills being called in late afternoons and watching the small geckos catch their dinner on the porch ceiling in the evenings. The pool area was a lovely place to unwind and chill. We have stayed in villas in Andalusia for the past 6 years and the barbecue area was definitely the best we have encountered. The road up to the villa seemed quite steep to start with but we soon got used to it and we had no trouble in just a normal car. Maria was lovely and welcoming and we would definitely recommend it as a great place to stay!"

We stayed at this villa for 2 weeks in September/October 2018. We had not used ristical travel before and we were very impressed by them at all stages of booking/pre travel etc. Thank you a very friendly but professional approach. The villa was our home for 2 weeks and we were not disappointed in anyway. It is as described and incredibly well equipped and so clean. The owner and daughter again were lovely and created the amazing time we had. Location...it’s as described great views from outside sitting areas and olive trees as neighbours. Would definitely use the company again. We walked into the villa and it felt like we were the first people to do so which takes a lot of work so thank you and we hope everyone likes it as much as we did."

The villa was absolutely fantastic. Easily the best we have stayed in. The location was superb, relaxing with excellent views from the dining table. The wildlife was amazing to watch and we spent many an hour watching the bees busily at work. The pool area was fantastic. We loved every minute of it. The villa itself was really well equipped and catered for all our needs. Antequera, about 30 minutes in the car, was a great place to spend a few hours, buying essentials and grabbing a coffee. Maria, the owner, was lovely and very helpful. This is the second property we have stayed in, booked through Rustical Travel, both have been excellent and the customer service is outstanding. Would love to go back!"
