Arriving in the dark after a long day, we were more than pleased to step inside this clean, comfortable villa. We were even more pleased to awaken to a bright sunny day and the spectacular views across Lake Vinuela.
This property has a fabulous position on the hillside, and commands the most amazing views right across the lake and beyond to the mountains. With the terrace, bbq and ample seating, we spent most of our evenings eating, laughing, playing cards and watching for shooting stars.
The pool was well maintained and regularly serviced during our stay. We had lots of loungers for relaxing and a second table and chairs in the shade, for those that needed a break from the sun.
One does need a car to stay here, especially if you would like to sightsee.But there are local shops and restaurants within walking distance, in the village, too. By car we visited Nerja, Torre de Mar, Frigliana, Marbella and some of the local mountian villages. Beach and walking in the natural park are both a short journey away.
Both the owner and agent looking after the property have been extremely friendly and helpful.
We ate out locally at the restaurant at the top of the hill and it was excellent. The service was very good and the food was superb. We also ate lunch on the beach a few times. Seafood- great, and we went to Brensons in Castillo Acinetos(?). Completely different food, more contemporary but very, very good. We also found Eroski, the supermarket in Velez Malaga, superb. Especially the fish and seafood counter.,
I would definitely recommend this property to a friend, although,selfishly, I might want to keep it a secret!!! Thank you for a great holiday.
