Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Almogia - Casa Los Algarrobos

3 bedrooms (1 turret room), 2 bathrooms, sleeps 5-6, private pool, terrace, BBQ

Casa Los Algarrobos has a number of places to sit and enjoy the tranquility and seclusion. An intimate dining area, two large terraces and shady spots to enjoy a good book. Spend some time on one of the many sun loungers on the large private terrace surrounding the pool, or walk among olive, almond and carob trees in the 5 acres of grounds. The house faces south, so you will get the sun all day long. The front, covered terrace is like an additional room for relaxing and dining - a great place to enjoy the uninterrupted views to the hills beyond and to spend time with friends over a long lazy meal or a bottle of wine. Accessed from outside, up a spiral staircase, there is the turret room which is the 3rd bedroom. Kids and teenagers love this. The pool is 8mx4m and ranges from 1-2 metres in depth. Outside in the garden is a separate stone BBQ, well equipped with a large serving/preparation area. Fast internet broadband and Wifi are available if you need to keep in touch with home

Located in a tranquil spot at the end of a rural track, 8 minutes from the main road, Casa Los Algarrobos is a private haven of quiet where you can relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. It is such a peaceful setting, the stillness only broken by birdsong or the chiming of goat bells miles away on the opposite hillside, as they are led home in the evening. Cool off in the private pool or top up your tan on one of terraces. Take some shade under one of the umbrellas or chill out on the comfy chairs on the covered terrace if the Andalucían sun is too hot. Spend long summer nights eating alfresco and, when the sun finally goes down, lie back on one of the sun-loungers and marvel at the Milky Way turning above and try to spot meteors. Light pollution is almost non-existent here and it's great for star-gazing.

The property is a lovely bright modern south-facing house, with a covered terrace (where you may be tempted to spend most of your time). There is an awning on the terrace so you can adjust the amount of sun you get. The main part of the house has 2 bedrooms; a master bedroom with double bed and an ensuite with shower, and a twin-bedded room. There is plenty of cupboard space. The third bedroom is up in the turret and is accessed via a spiral staircase on the outside of the house. This is not therefore recommended for small children or anyone who might struggle with a spiral staircase. Anyone sleeping in the turret room would need to re-enter the main part of the house to use the bathroom. This usually appeals to teenagers or older children who do not need supervision. There is a TV and DVD player in the turret room.

Most of the rooms in the house are fitted with external shutters which are extremely good at shutting out the light. If you want to have a lie-in and not get woken by the beams of sunlight, you can close the shutters completely and it

will be almost pitch black. All the bedroom windows are fitted with screens to prevent mosquitoes and other insects flying in.

Satellite TV is available with hundreds of free-to-air channels in English, French, Dutch, German, etc. Most of the channels that available on Freesat are here. The DVD player in the lounge accepts USB connections from iPods, for example. So you can play music through the TV.

The villa is equipped to a very high standard with the following amenities/facilities.

Cooking is by gas hob and electric oven. All electricity and gas for heating and cooking is included. There is a microwave, toaster, cafetiere and kettle available.

Most rooms have ceiling fans. For those holidaying during the winter months, heating is by electric radiators, free-standing radiators and a wood burning stove (logs can be purchased from us). Electric blankets are also available to ensure you are comfortably warm overnight.

Plenty of parking space is available. There is a large carport which will accommodate a large vehicle like a motor home and keep it cool. There is also space for another two cars.

All bed linen and towels (including pool towels) are provided and are changed weekly. The villa is cleaned to a high standard for your arrival.

A hair-dryer and an iron/ironing board are available for use by guests.

We provide a welcome pack of milk, bread, butter, water, tea bags, coffee, butter, jam, eggs, fruit juice and a bottle of wine for holidays of one week or more.

A travel cot and high chair are available at a small extra cost for baby or small child. Please specify this when you book.

A babysitting service is available on request at extra cost - enquire at time of booking.

Almogía, Antequera, Málaga, Andalucía

Andalucía is one of the most beautiful areas of Europe, and was immortalized by Ernest Hemingway. The region is quintessentially Spanish; think flamenco, guitars, sherry, olives, cured hams, week-long fiestas, bullfights, whitewashed houses clinging to the hillside, ruined castles and you'll get the picture. This is a land rich with the legacies of the Moors and the Romans, among many other invaders, all of whom have left their mark on the culture and landscape of this specular region. Famous Andalucians include Pablo Picasso, Antonio Banderas and Miguel Jiménez, all of whom were born in Málaga.

Almogía loves to celebrate all things that rural life has to offer and there are regular fiestas and feria throughout the year. They celebrate the coming of summer, the goat (wonderful cheese and puddings made from goats milk etc.), the almond harvest, Easter and of course the week long summer Feria to name just a few. Almogía is about 10 minutes drive from the house. To the north of Almogía, a 20 minute drive brings you to the larger village of Villanueva de la Concepción, where you will find many more restaurants and bars.

The house is ideally situated as a base for outdoor activities, sight-seeing, shopping, night-life and the beaches of the Costa del Sol. To the north and west you'll find such attractions as; the El Torcal mountain - where you can hike

among the haunting rock formations, Laguna Fuente de Piedra - wetlands incorporating a 13km² salt water lake and home to the largest concentration of breeding pairs of flamingos in Europe, the Lobo Park - 100,000m² of woodland where you can get into close contact with native Iberian wolves, European wolves, Timber wolves from Canada and Tundra wolves from Alaska.

The historic town of Antequera is a 40 minute drive away, along an impressive route skirting El Torcal with fantastic views. Antequera has a bullring, pretty streets and pavement cafes, where you can eat well and cheaply. There is a relatively new shopping centre (La Veronica) just outside town for the shopaholics.

Ardales and the Embalses (lakes) are a short drive away (45 minutes), where you can swim in the turquoise waters, surrounded by pinewoods, on small private beaches away from the crowds. If you're feeling more energetic there are canoes, kayaks and paddle-boats ('waterbikes') for hire. You can fish here too.

The whitewashed village of Valle de Abdalajís is the Andalucían 'flying capital' and you can organise many activities such as paragliding, hang-gliding, mountain-biking, rock-climbing and horse-riding. About 30 minutes away.

To the south are Malaga, Marbella and Puerto Banus. Here there are many fine beaches and, being a large city, Málaga offers enticing shopping opportunities, cultural attractions and buzzing night-life, beautiful parks and great architecture, as well as a football team currently riding high in La Liga, the Spanish premier league.

There is a large Aqualand water park in Torremolinos (35 minutes) and an active Sea-Life Marine Park just down the coast in Benalmádena (40 minutes).

Further afield, it is possible to take day trips to Ronda, Granada, Sevilla and Córdoba.

Ronda is worth making the effort to visit. The old town retains its historic charm, and the area is famous for its dramatic escarpments and and views of the Serranía de Ronda mountains. Most impressive is the 18th century Puente Nuevo (new bridge), which straddles the deep gorge carved out by the river Guadalevín 100m below. Also recommended is the Palacio Mondragón, with the remains of its exquisite miniature water gardens dating from its time as a Moorish palace. Ronda is about 90 minutes away.

Essential viewing in Granada (only 90 minutes away on a good road) is the Alhambra Palace - built for muslim rulers in the 14th century, this unique palace/fortress is the finest example of Moorish architecture in Europe, if not the world. Don't miss the Generalife gardens and the views of the Sierra Nevadas!

Other destinations you should consider for excursions are the major cities of Sevilla and Córdoba (2.5 and 1.5 hours away respectively). Sevilla is the capital of Andalucía, the home of Carmen and rightly famous for the length and exuberance of its festivals. Built on the banks of the Guadalquivir river, it is home to the most famous bullring in the world and of course the 'tapeo' - the home of tapas. Must-see attractions are the Plaza España the Alcázar (castle) and if you have time, the cathedral and Giralda tower. Unmissable sights in Córdoba include the Mezquita, a quite beautiful former mosque built by the Moors, and the Palacio Municipal.

The Sierra Nevada mountains are just 2hrs away. In winter months the skiing resorts are open from November to April, while in summer, kayaking and white-water rafting are available. Golfers are well catered for, with the spectacular 18 hole Antequera Golf and a par 72 course designed by Seve Ballesteros in Alhaurín el Grande, both about 40 mins away.

The area is also home to many species of birds, with Golden eagles and Egyptian and Griffon vultures in the mountains and other predators can be spotted in lowland forests including red kites, buzzards and kestrels. The golden oriole can be seen in orchards during the summer, and we have seen owls and woodpeckers and many other smaller species locally.

The quality of the light, the colours, flora and fauna, architecture and scenery combine to make Andalucía pretty much an ideal place for the artist and photographer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at Casa los Algarrobos and a very good rest, we were able to read some good books and eat yummy food.



We couldn't find any Champagne flutes or a garlic crusher. Other than that the kitchen was very well stocked. [NOW PROVIDED]



Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful holiday home with us. Your house is beautiful & the location perfect and we are really enjoying the weather. The bed is so comfortable. We had a much needed rest from the daily rat race.



With very best wishes

Magical, beautiful, perfect holiday villa

  • 5 out of 5
You will not be disappointed with this luxury villa.
It has everything that you could possibly need/want and more. The location is secluded and peaceful, yet only a short drive to local amenities. My family and I (consisting of adults, children and older teenagers) were blown away by the panoramic views from the garden/pool area.
I would highly recommend this villa to all age groups. It was immaculately clean, very well maintained and offered luxurious accommodation.
The owners are lovely people and very helpful, as are their maintenance team.
There are lots of things to see and do in the local area however our favourite days were spent soaking up the sun around the swimming pool by day and stargazing by night!
A true holiday - blissful perfection - treasured memories.

A beautiful house in a stunning location

  • 5 out of 5
Have just returned from a 12 night stay in this beautiful and well equipped villa. The location is stunning with views to the nearby hills and beyond and there is no noise apart from the goats' bells on a couple of days and the distant dog barking.
The villa is very well equipped and is furnished to a very high standard. The local representative (Kelly) was very helpful and gave us lots of tips on where to eat.
The property owners were very professional with their booking system and the info book that they provide in the house is exceptional.
There is nothing that we could fault about this villa and, hopefully, we will return in the very near future.

Peaceful Retreat.

  • 5 out of 5
Body and soul repaired after short stay at Casa Los Algarrobos. Sunny and comfortable weather, with the occasional smell of wild thyme in the air. Enjoyed local rambles from the house. Clean and wellappointed house with well equiped kitchen(better than mine).
Hope to go back.

Very comfortable and peaceful

  • 5 out of 5
Property is very secluded at the end of ~2km unmade road. Instructions provided for finding it proved accurate and easy to follow. Property was clean and well-equipped. Beds comfortable, plenty of kitchen gear available, TV and wi-fi worked fine. We had intended to go out and tour more, but were seduced by the beauty and silence and ended up spending much more time at the villa. The loudest thing we heard all day were the bells of the goats being herded through the valley. Ate out a couple of times, the little bar/restaurant (Toni's) in the next village was excellent and very good value. We would be happy to come back again and will recommend to friends.

Very peaceful & relaxing stay in stunning location

Very peaceful & relaxing stay in stunning location
  • 5 out of 5
The villa was beautiful and the location was even more tranquil than we could have asked for. The interior of the villa had a warm homely feel to it and everything was arranged wonderfully for us. The facilities are very clean and well maintained by weekly visits from housekeepers.

We were provided with a delightful welcome pack and a well put together visitors guide with heaps of useful information about the surrounding area and things to do should one wish to leave the serenity of the area.

It was lovely to be able to take walks in the surrounding countryside and to enjoy the scenic views.

I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.

Peaceful villa with a 'Dynasty' feel

Peaceful villa with a 'Dynasty' feel
  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Los Algorrobos with a party of three adults and had a wonderful relaxing time. The surroundings are extremely peaceful with only the sounds of the birds and the bees all day.
Malaga is only a forty minutes drive away and we made several daytrips to explore this beautiful city -and of course to do some great shopping! The area is very nice for walking and especially during the evening we had some great views with stunning sunsets.
The villa is well equiped and the owner has provided a map with all the details, including many sightseeing possibilties in the neighborhood.
We would definitely book this villa again!

Peaceful, secluded rural villa retreat, a haven nestled among 5 acres of private olive and almond groves near Almogía in the hills north of Málaga. Ideal as a base for outdoor activities such as walking, mountain-biking, rock-climbing, paragliding, fishing and canoeing. Tour nearby El Chorro gorge and Ardales lakes, and swim in clear turquoise waters. Go hiking among eerie rock formations on El Torcal mountain. Take day trips to historic Ronda, the Alhambra palace at Granada, Plaza España in Sevilla and the Mezquita in Córdoba. In winter months the skiing resorts of Sierra Nevada are just 2hrs away. Enjoy shopping and night-life in Málaga and Marbella. Beautiful Costa del Sol beaches are only 40mins drive. Golfers are well catered for, with the spectacular 18 hole Antequera Golf and a par 72 course designed by Seve Ballesteros in Alhaurín el Grande, both about 40 mins away.

Too much activity? Then just chill out by the private pool, relax and enjoy the tranquility, the views and the birdsong, where you can remain undisturbed until you choose to venture back out into the world. The privacy also makes this house the ideal naturist retreat. At night the house is ideally suited to star gazing, situated as it is in an area unpolluted by electric lights.
