Overview

Combining traditional décor and style with full holiday amenities, here we have genuine Andalucia at its most satisfying.

The location is excellent: all on its own within Montes de Malaga Natural Park, where the hilltop setting grants 360⁰ views of Mediterranean forest and the mountains of El Torcal.

The villa is set in a huge private estate of hills and caves that children will love to explore.

Top on our list of ticked boxes: the villa is beautifully fitted out and comfortably furnished in traditional farmhouse style. Bedrooms are spacious, beds are king or queen-size and linen is quality cotton. All bedrooms have a bathroom, four of them en suite.

Kitchen facilities are very complete too.

We say "villa" in the singular, although if there are more than six people, you get an additional property alongside the main villa. You are guaranteed complete privacy whether you take one house or both, as they are never rented separately to different parties.

The main farmhouse (with 3 bedrooms) can be rented on its own (except in High Season when the property is offered as a whole), and then the other house remains closed and unoccupied.

Or the adjoining casita (with 2 bedrooms) can be added to the main farmhouse to sleep up to 10 people. This casita is not rented separately: it's simply a continuation of the villa accommodation.

When the two houses are combined, there is dining room for 9 adults to eat together either inside or out on the terrace. The main house has enough plates, glasses and cutlery for everyone (you might simply need to bring a chair from the other house).

The casita also has its own fully equipped kitchen for independent dining and if you don't feel like cooking one day, catering is available from a  good local cook.

For a completely leisurely holiday, groceries can be shopped for you prior to arrival, and during your stay a maid cleaning service can be arranged on request.

Next on our list of likes is the swimming pool. It's gated in case you come with young children and it has a broad sun terrace with lovely views of Axarquia countryside. There's a pool shower and sunbeds are provided. On a clear day, you can make out the snowy peaks of Sierra Nevada from here.

The converted property was once was a respectable 18th century Axarquia winery and you will find the large old earthenware wine vessels incorporated into the design. Thick stone walls keep the interiors fresh even at the height of the Andalucian summer. It must have been a wonderful place to work, pressing the well-sunned local grapes into the typically sweet Malaga wines and sherries in this blissfully peaceful natural setting.

Terraces on either end of the villa provide all-round enjoyment of the gentle hills of protected the Natural Parklands. The hillside reaches down to the Guadalmedina river.

Two rare local features stand out here to make this place very special.

One is the virgin Mediterranean forest, which contains all the major autochthonous varieties of tree and plant, notably the wild olive. There are no pathways, no cleared picnic spots, just wild woodlands, home to rabbit, mongoose, hedgehog and a wealth of birdlife.

Ornithologists may spot up to 40 species in the spring, and others in the autumn and winter.

The other feature is the series of caves, or to be correct, hollows and shelters carved by wind action over the millennia, to be found within the boundaries of your villa’s private estate. Daubed on the walls in red pigment are Bronze Age figures, both zoomorphic and schematic.

Although catalogued and partly conceded into the trust of the Andalucia authorities, the caves are to all extents and purposes private to the villa. The owner is not of a mind to fence off the boundless acres of the hillside that go with the property, so an occasional walker with enough curiosity might make their way to the caves, but generally speaking they are pretty much all yours.

Local Casabermeja (population 3,500), founded itself in the Bronze Age, is these days a small, quiet Andalusian town. Here you can eat out at restaurants that specialize in fish, grilled steak or traditional stews. Outside at the villa, there’s an unusual, wood-fired Moorish oven which guests may try out if they wish. It’s quite an art, so a little impractical, but they say that roasts come out exquisitely delicious. This oven is, of course, supplementary to normal kitchen facilities.

The track to the villa is not too long at 2 km, making it just 15 minutes from good restaurants in Casabermeja and an easy drive from Malaga beaches and airport.

A leisurely drive will take you to fascinating El Torcal for well-marked paths through the magical rock formations (an interesting spot for a picnic), and to beaches of the Costa del Sol for sea and sand.

Nicky | July | 2016

The villa is stylish & sympathetically decorated & furnished. The traditional feel & original features felt welcoming & comfortable. The fresh flowers were a lovely touch. We really enjoyed a meal cooked by the recommended local chef and could have used her every night of our stay! The annexe was surprisingly comfortable & the master bedroom here was lovely, I particularly liked the framed pictures and seats in front of the fire...The patios around the house itself are well laid out & it would be nice to see the side elevation area paved or landscaped as the short walk to the pool area was a little rough. The pool was clean with plenty of sun loungers & fantastic views. The village is close by and met all our needs. We took a train to Granada which was a treat. The only negatives I can point out were that the track upto the house is very steep, rural & rough it was a bit of a shock initially but we got used to it."

The property was fantastic, even better than the photos. The welcome from the owner was warm and thorough and the house had everything we could possibly need including games and toys for the kids. I found Rustical Travel very easy to deal with and thorough in the information they gave us. Would fully recommend this villa and the company."

AX25 is a real treasure. It’s quirky and has masses of character. The location is only 15mins or so from Casabermeja but it could be a million miles away. A winding track takes you up and up from the small urbanization below and as you turn the last bend you are rewarded with a tantalising glimpse of the villa and the most astounding views. Once you are in the villa, well then it just unfolds, room after room all individually and sympathetically restored complete with wild flowers in vases! A lovely warm welcome from the owner Carmen immediately made us feel at home. The house is massive and steeped in history. We were only a party of four and we more or less rattled around the place. There are several terraces each having spectacular views and we’d alternate between them for mealtimes, sunset drinks and stargazing. You can find sunshine or shade all day, whatever your preference. We went for walks, taking a random track and finding out where it would lead us. It’s very quiet; you won’t see or hear a car. Once you find the caves, they are quite magical, almost spiritual. Carmen and her family were wonderful hosts, giving us advice on where to eat and what to do. The house was spotless throughout. The pool was sparkly and inviting. We confess we didn’t venture out much to the surrounding area – we didn’t need to – other than for stocking up on shopping and having a nose around Nerja for a spot of tourist life and beach. It is just the perfect place for a very private, relaxing and ‘no shoes’ holiday. Although if you want to keep in touch with home or office, the wifi worked brilliantly. Spying a pair of eagles soaring above us, and watching the swallows swoop down on the pool in the late afternoons was wonderful to see. We heard the snuffling of what we thought could be wild boar and had a visit from a nosy fox. Otherwise you have the house completely to yourself. Practicalities: The booking process and information via Rustical Travel was great. We didn’t have cause to call them during our stay. We didn’t need a 4x4 to drive up the track – just a bit of confidence and a bit of oomph from the engine to get up the steeper parts. Bring suitable shoes to allow you to go off walking and exploring the surrounding area. Bite the bullet and do a massive shop at Eroski (about an hour away) and then just stock up locally thereafter. The Dia supermarket on the outskirts of Casabermeja was a little bereft, but a couple of doors down you’ll find another shop called ‘Colmenar’ which had a far better choice. It’s a perfect place for relaxing and whiling away the days and evenings with friends in a splendid house with spectacular scenery. If you want nightlife, or restaurants or bars within a reasonable walking distance, then this place isn’t for you. We didn’t, so it was spot on for us. July/August 2014. [Age 53-65]"

I just wanted to provide some feedback from our recent holiday (Property AX25) in Andalucía. The property itself was first class and we were very impressed with the location, property and facilities. In particular I would be grateful if you would pass our thanks to Carmen. The fridge has beer and wine upon arrival and a large bowl of fresh fruit, all of which she didn't need to provide and very welcome to arrive to. Thanks to you also for your help in arranging the property rental for us."

We all enjoyed the holiday very much. Carmen was there to meet us and lead us to the villa which was exactly as described and well appointed. She showed us everything as necessary and later was able to guide us on the 'phone when the water heating failed. The views were spectacular. We found the caves but we thought it would be an idea to leave a brief description of where they were, in the villa for future visitors to find them. We did that in the comments book. Overall very happy with the booking arrangements and information given prior to the visit."

Just to let you know we had a great stay. The house is wonderful and so is the area (our 'private mountain' ;-) ) - we loved it! Carmen was very helpful, please make sure she gets our compliments. It is important to have a host/caretaker like her because of course a house with so much character needs a lot of care! What happened was at first the stove and oven didn't work and the heating kept on shutting off, but thanks to her service it did not become big problems or holiday-spoilers. Special touches that made it feel 'luxurious': there were lots! of nice big and soft towels in every bathroom, flowers (wild rosemary) and little sweets everywhere. Lots of fruit and vegetables, wine and sherry as welcome gifts. Firewood. The floor was very comfortable warm (which is important for a stone floor in winter!) and once the heating worked, it worked good and made the whole house very nice warm and comfortable. The decoration of the whole house was done with personal style and care and attention for detail. Nice things like a chair that can be turned into a 4-step stairs! And there were not only a baby cot and chair, there were several chairs, also for our 4-year old (funny little wooden rocking chairs :-) ) and a baby box. We will recommend this villa and Rustical Travel to our friends and colleagues. Kind regards and maybe Hasta la Vista! ;-) "
