About Mrs Suzanne Davy

2006 was actually when I bought the plot of land where Casa Convento now sits and it was completed in 2008. I have always worked in design of some sort, either in interiors, or as a stylist, writer and now, photographer, so it was a dream to design and build my own house, which we also spend time in whenever we can secure a week or two! My husband, a helicopter pilot, and I live in the beautiful, historic city of Bath.

Mrs Suzanne Davy purchased this house in 2006

Why Mrs Suzanne Davy chose Canillas de Aceituno

The Axarquia area is full of fabulous places to visit and has a great diversity of interest for all. We love the village of Canillas and its people, who are very friendly and greet everyone in passing. From here, it is easy to visit lots of lovely 'pueblos blancos', many of which you can spot from our panoramic dining terrace or sunbathing roof terrace. Behind is the unspoilt wilderness of the National Park, with access for walks right behind the house. We are only 25 minutes panoramic drive from the seaside and many beached to explore. Marbella etc are within reaching distance for a ritzy day out.

What makes this house unique

I am always so pleased to have the wonderful response from my guests at Casa Convento who tell me it is utterly blissful, comfortable and way beyond the normal standard for a rental property. Words such as 'Stunning', 'Heavenly', 'Superb', 'Paradise' are used in my Guest book and reviews.

Beautifully quiet villa.

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely 10 night stay at Casa Convento, our teenage girls loved it too and made good use of the pool. Having the roof terrace to sunbathe on was great too. The kitchen was well equipped for all our needs. The village is small and lovely with friendly locals.

Casa Convento is a good base for visiting lots of places and the supermarket is only 30 minutes away.

All of Suzanne's instructions were great and much appreciated.

I would recommend a visit to Lake Bermejales and would certainly recommend this villa to all my friends and family.

A Beautiful Place for your holidays

  • 5 out of 5
Dieses Haus bietet alles was man für einen entspannenden Urlaub braucht. Die Lage des Hauses im Ort ist excellent. Der Ort selber ist ein wirklich schönes Plätzchen in Andalusien.
Die Beschreibung des Hauses entspricht dem was man antrifft. Das Haus befand sich in einem guten Zustand und alles funktionierte Einwandfrei.Die Vermieterin war stets sehr freundlich und es klappte alles hervorragend. Die Frau vor Ort ist sehr nett und immer gut erreichbar.Ich würde dieses Haus jedem Empfehlen dem es nichts ausmacht ein paar Kilometer Serpentinen zu fahren, die in einer wunderschönen Landschaft liegen.
Im Ort kann man gut Essen gehen und in näherer Umgebung sind diverse Möglichkeiten.Einkaufen kann man sehr gut diverse Shopping Center und verschiedene Städte, sowie alle bekannten Discounter sind gut zu erreichen mit dem Auto. Ein Auto ist übrigens ein muss.
Ich kann das Haus und Canillas de Aceituno nur empfehlen.

Casa Convento stay

  • 5 out of 5
What a fantastic place to stay. Casa Convento is an absolutely beautiful house with every potential need thought through from beach towels and adaptor plugs to a docking station for iPods. The pool was lovely and the views of the mountains from the terraces were stunning. I would definitely return.

Casa Convento

  • 5 out of 5
This year marked our third visit to Casa Convento which obviously speaks volumes. It was, as ever, blissful. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished with a well equipped kitchen. The views from the various balconies are stunning. The village has all the basics you need if you want a restful holiday to recharge your batteries. Suzanne the owner is extremely helpful and easy to deal with. The property is only about an hour from Malaga airport which makes it very convenient even for short breaks. I would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful villa in a gem of a village

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Casa Convento over Easter and had a very enjoyable and relaxing time. The villa is situated in a gem of a village tucked away in the hills near Velez-Malaga. The villa has all of the modern creature comforts and is well designed and decorated. A highlight is the outdoor dining table on the balcony - eating fresh seafood and drinking wine whilst the sun sets over the picturesque landscape is a truly relaxing and memorable experience.

Thanks for a wonderful stay.

20 mins from the buzz of Costa del Sol and Torre del Mar brings you to the peace and spectacular scenery of traditional Spain where pueblos blancos cling to the hillsides and the sights and scenery enchant year-round. The Axarquia region has a reputation for the best climate in Europe and, steeped in history, it has much to offer for exploration and sense-of-place, from the plethora of white-washed villages to the Nerja Caves' magical formations. Malaga has a beautiful historical centre - and excellent shopping - while Antequera and Granada are within exploring range. The beautiful drive from the coast brings you to Sierra Tejeda National Park and Canillas, where potted flowers decorate the side-streets, mules and goats studiously ignore humanity and the village ladies practice their flamenco in the evening cool. Walk, paint, photograph, picnic, listen to cicadas, taste local wine, sample village specialities – or simply enjoy the tranquillity and comfort of Casa Convento.

Other Activities: walking, painting, photography, wildlife, bird-watching, exploring, picnicking
