Overview

Nestled between the mountains of the eastern Costa del Sol and the tropical rolling hills of the Axarquia, this pretty villa welcomes holidaymakers with warmth.

With the peak of La Maroma glowering in the background you can breathe easily in this alpine paradise surrounded by lemon and almond groves, with even the odd mango tree thrown in as a testament to the soft climate. The setting is spectacular, and outside living is certainly encouraged with lawned gardens and a generous sized and gated private pool area.

There is an air of secluded luxury about this spot, the gardens seem to welcome those with children – boasting plenty of space to run wild.

The three outdoor living spaces are designed to guide you through the day; morning coffee on the furnished porch, afternoons lounging beside the pool, and evening aperitifs and barbeques beneath the shade.

A tree hut on the property (in good estate in our last visit in October 2016) also offers sublime birds eye views across the wilderness.

Inside the décor verges on rustic luxury with plenty of exposed wood, tasteful furnishings, and touches of warm terracotta and cool marble.

An open plan living room moves seamlessly into the dining room and stretches out onto the porch.

The indoor veranda, log fire, and French doors add a gentle grandeur.

All the bedrooms boast ensuite facilities and all have good cozy mattresses and direct access to the glory of the great outdoors.

On the doorstep, you will find winding nature trails and for the more adventurous you may find the challenging peak of La Maroma tempting. Although in the height of summer we can think of nothing better than relaxing in the shade of your private villa or ducking into the nearby traditional Spanish village with its handful of good restaurants.

Just thirty minutes away you will find the cool waters and soft sands of the Costa del Sol, including the dramatic Maro Cliff beaches with its wild goats. From here you can also jet off to the historic city of Granada or indulge in the magic of Malaga.

YOUR REVIEWS

Marja | April | 2018

We stayed with our family from 30 April to 7 May in this villa This was really ENJOYING !! A very nice House in style Andalusia. A beautiful location between the hills, fantastic views. Exciting route through the mountains to the house. And yet also close to the beach. Beautiful hiking trails nearby. The villa has a large garden with several seats, delicious. The cozy outdoor kitchen and pizza oven was for our family to enjoy with all evening food. The pool with sunbeds and nice seating near the pool was also top. Everything in the house was complete. washing machine with detergent, dishwasher with cubes, BBq with coal and wood. Fridge filled with water, beer and wine on arrival. We really enjoyed it."

Susan | March | 2018

This is a really beautiful property in a stunning location and would be ideal for the hot summer months. We went in March, however and the wind funnelled through the mountains and it was very cold. The house was very draughty and we certainly made use of the open log fire. The dishwasher fused the electrics and was declared out of action and we were without power for most of a day. The lovely Sebastian the caretaker came and sorted it out for us. What a lovely guy. Would certainly recommend this property for warmer months but not off season."

Rustical Update

We were informed that the heavy rains and stomrs in the previous days caused the electricity to go off, but it was solved promptly. The dishwasher was also fixed later.

Caroline | August | 2017

This was a fantastic property. It was a lovely layout and location and very well supplied. The house has a lovely and unusual layout with access to the outside from both levels. The pool and outdoor barbecue area were fantastic and we enjoyed exploring the local town, Nerja, Malaga and Antequera all within easy distance. The service was excellent. We had a minor plumbing problem that I reported on Sunday evening and it was fixed the next morning. Both the owner and the admin at Rustical Travel were very friendly and helpful. We travelled as 3 couples and a baby. Because every room has its own bathroom it worked really well. Even the request for feedback was the most polite I've ever seen! Very highly recommended."
