Spectacular holiday that ticks all the boxes !!

  • 5 of 5

This holiday ticked all our boxes.The villa is in a perfect location away from it all in 'real Spain' and only a few minutes away from the beautiful village with lovely resteraunts and bars. The welcome you get in the village is genuine and heartwarming. The beach and lovely town of Torres Del Mar is approx fifteen minutes away and the gorgeous Nerja a bit further .Back to the villa , the views from the villa are just spectacular you cannot help but feel relaxed as you wake up to the beatiful vista, just amazing. The villa is extremely well equipped and immaculately clean. The large pool and outdoor area take advantage of the wonderful 360 panoramic views with no obstructions. If you want a holiday that offers the choice of tranquil relaxing villa with a typical Spanish village on your doorstep with easy access to beaches then look no further . Can't wait to go again.

Andalusian idyll

  • 5 of 5

The Casita is a real gem hidden away down a country lane but only 5 minutes by car from the village of Canillas de Aceituno. The views by day from the terrace across the valley towards Lake Vinuela are quite spectacular. By night the twinkling lights of the hilltop villages just add to the atmosphere. The house itself was spotless and well-maintained, with everything we needed to make our stay most comfortable. The pool was a bonus which, I'm sure, would be most welcome come the heat of July and August. Heather, the lady next door, was always very helpful if we wanted any advice. We have already recommended the Casita to friends and we are, ourselves, planning to return in the near future.

The restaurants in the village are excellent value, with good, local, food, and most welcoming and friendly staff.

The Casita is the perfect base for visiting not only the beautiful Andalusian villages of the region but also, a little further afield, the beautiful palace of The Alhambra in Granada.

We stayed a week in the Casita, and wished it could have been longer! If you are looking for a completely relaxing holiday we could not recommend the Casita highly enough. For us it was simply perfect.

Mountain Getaway

  • 5 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 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 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 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.

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.
