Mountain Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
Although semi-detached the villa is very private, very spacious, clean and comfortable.
Lovely pool with fantastic views. The villa faces south with the mountain to the rear (North). If you are lucky you may see eagles circling above. You will definitely see the Shepherd and his goats in the valley's below.
Being in the mountains a car is essential although the village of Canillas is only a 5 minute drive up hill. Canillas has 3 very good restaurants and several small bars.
The large supermarket Eroski at Velez Malaga is 20 - 25 minutes drive and has everything you want.
With the help of incredible weather it was everything we wanted and made it a fantastic holiday.
Heather who lives next door is on hand to help you out with anything. She was a real Gem for us and couldn't do enough for us.
We would definitely return here if we were to visit Andalusia again.

Beautiful Casita, Perfect for a Relaxing Holiday.

  • 5 out of 5
Booked the Casita for a mini break with my friend from 1st to the 6th June, and wished we could have stayed longer! Lovely villa, views from the pool to die for, so relaxing and peaceful. Added bonus for two ladies on their own, was having Heather next door. So helpful and welcoming. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property, and will definitely be booking to come back with our partners next year.

Be of tranquility

  • 5 out of 5
My first holiday since a heart attack 15 months ago had to be perfectly relaxing for me.
In 2010 I stayed in a villa very close to the village Cavillas de Aceituno and vowed I would return as I loved the location, village, it's atmosphere, it's working way, very traditional Spanish and the potato croquettes. However, this time I wanted 'the view' as well.

I booked the Casa for five days. I wanted to be close to the same amenities of the village yet enjoy my own solitude. Not wanting to understate but the location and views where perfect for me. It does mention 'car essential' and it is.
The Casa itself is well equipped, kitchen looks great although I didn't use it, bloke and BBQ, hand in hand.
Im fussy about swimming pools, I swam every day here, it's lovely, swimming whilst looking at the mountains of a day or stars of an evening
I ended up staying more at the Casa than I thought I would do.
Quick word on the stars and evening sky for those interested, Majestic.
If you can find the time, have a chat with Heather next door, she is another star.
Did I perfectly relax? Yes.
Did I miss the potato croquettes? Yes
Will I go back? YES

Lovely house in a tranquil setting

  • 5 out of 5
Just had a short break at the house and it was wonderful. this holiday was just perfect for me as travelling alone it was good to be close enough to a lovely village. although small it ad shops, bars and really good restaurants - everything I needed. The house was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, this together with the beautiful private pool and sunshine every day made it just perfect. thank you, I will be staying again next year.

Would not visit again

  • 2 out of 5
We spent 2 weeks at the casa, my parents joined us for 1 week. The villa was beautiful inside, very clean and well maintained. Our only issue was both bedroom windows and one lounge window overlooked next doors garden/drive so we had to keep our curtains shut. I specifically wanted to hire a private villa this year for just that, privacy..but felt it was not as private as I would have liked.

A car is essential as the villa is approx. 4km from the main highway up into the mountains. The views are stunning and sunset is beautiful.

Heather, the lady next door is very helpful and always came to our rescue when we had Wi-Fi issues.

We were the first people to visit the villa so I think improvements have been made since our visit and updates to the advertisement also.

The biggest issue for us was the dogs that lived next door. There were 5 dogs ranging from terrier to mastiff sizes. They woke us up daily between 6.45am and 7.00am with the barking. When they are loose in the garden next door, they can oversee the pool area from both sides of the villa. I am a huge dog lover and Heather did do her best with them but they live there and are entitled to be out in the gardens, I just didn't feel this was an ideal holiday villa for guests wanting peace and quiet and a lie in!!

Overall, we had made the best of our holiday but would not visit again.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your comments both positive and negative.

As our first guests your feedback was important to us and we have addressed all issues since your stay.

Car hire is essential as the casita is in the countryside but this is outlined on the website.

Our neighbour Heather had 5 dogs during your stay but the large dog Bruno was a rescue dog and has now found a new home.

As you pointed out and experienced first hand Heather is helpful and friendly and mindful of the fact our guests come to the casita to relax so the other dogs are walked away from the casita each day.
.
The secluded shade area you mentioned , outside the bedroom is not used during guest visits ensuring another pretty vista to enjoy.

We are sorry that you would choose not to stay again but the problems you experienced have all been rectified.

Kind regards

amazingly relaxing

  • 5 out of 5
if you are looking for peace and quiet whilst enjoying fantastic views this is the place. just spent week with friends Kieran and Debs and this place gave us everything. local village is typically Spanish with facilities to buy an array of food so we bbq'd most nights. Car is essential as house is situated a little out of town along winding lane too far to walk after a drink! Ate at La Maroma- fully recommend- food excellent and plenty of it. House has everything you need and wonderful setting. Heather who lives next door is very helpful. Will come again
soon.

Canillas De Aceituno is located in the Nature Reserve of 'Sierra Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama'.

It sits high on the slopes of La Maroma, the highest of the mountain range and hence offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

It offers countless possibilities for activities such as trekking hiking, canoeing,speleology etc.

As usual in Andalusia, the village has many fiestas(holidays) as well as a Carnival, which is held in February,Canillas de Aceituno has its unique fiestas.

One such is held on the last Sunday in April to honour the patron saint ' La Virgen de la Cabeza'. This day is also known as, Dia de La Morcilla, when free beer wine and morcilla(black pudding) is served.

In August there is the main 4 days fiesta. Finally around the 7th or 8th September we have 'Candelaria' (Bonfire night).

The Moorish white washed village is a maze of cobbled lanes lined with orange trees and dotted with bars, restaurants and local stores offering fine local produce. There is a bank with ATM,a pharmacy and municipal pool with bar/restaurant at the end of the village.

The village is over 1000 years old and evidence of its ancient past can be seen at the House of the Moorish Queen in the square by the Town Hall and also the Arab well located in a building just outside the village passed The Bodega restaurant.
