Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had the best family holiday ever at Casa Estrella. The casa was lovely and was a great base to explore real Spain. Everyone was helpful, the country side was stunning and the village fabulously Spanish. Wonderful barbecue area and terrace to chill out. We will definitely be returning..........

Just perfect

  • 5 out of 5
As soon as we arrived and took in the georgeous "Gaudi" garden and lovely views we started to relax. Casa Estrella is also well placed to visit mountains, national reserves, the beach, Granada or Seville. On our first night we treated ourselves to a lovely meal at La Sociadade in the village, we could not have been more pleased as the unspoiltness of the restaurants Canillas de Acuituno.
We loved spending evenings at Estrella, sitting outside on the terrace taking in the fabulous sunsets, feeling very relaxed after swimming and floating about on the lovely pool, while the men of our party barbecued and we produced platters of locally produced fresh salads, fruit and vegetables and supping the divine Rioja!
The Casa was well equipped and very comfortable, I loved the contemporary Spanish design and lightness. I also appreciated that the kitchen was not tucked away and not only could you chat to anyone inside you also had a view to the pool, terrace and stunning mountains beyond. The teenagers in our party enjoyed Internet access and the pool table as well as hours swimming.
The house keeper, Rachel, was more than helpful as was the owner.
We loved the local goats and the tinkering of their bells on the mountainside as the bar opened and we gathered for our evening on the terrace.
We will definitely be back ...........

Outstanding villa in an amazing setting

  • 5 out of 5
The 9k drive up the ever winding mountain was well worth it! The villa is situated in an idillic location with stunning views. The exterior has a wonderful pool, driveway for 2 cars and is incredibly neat and tidy. The interior is very clean and modern with a Spanish feel, spacious and homely. The owner Michael was incredibly helpful when booking and his assistant in Spain equally as helpful. The sun rests on the property all day with the opportunity to watch it set behind a nearby mountain by the pool. The nearby village is easy to get to and is very handy for small items such as bread and snacks. The local restaurants are good particularly La Sociadad which has a wonderful small seating area to the rear situated in the cobbled streets serving traditional Spanish food.
We would highly recommend this property to anyone, couples, families etc would love it here. We can't wait to book for next year!

A perfect luxury home away from home

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay with two families in this luxury villa with stunning views, lovely pool, perfect terraces. The house has a good airy and comfortabel feel to it with a well equipped kitchen and nicely airconditioned bedrooms and living room. We had two teenagers with us who are sometimes hard to please but the enjoyed this holidayhouse even more than the week before along the coast, Having Wifi and a good size pool helped. The terrace with barbecue and stylish outside furniture are perfect.
The mountains and goats passing the house made us feel we were part of nature and the drive up to the house is very worthwile. This part of Andalucia is absolutely lovely especially in a house such as this Casa. We are thinking about renting it again, something we are not used to doing because we like to be suprised but because of the comfort and holidayfeel we are considering it.

We found the typical Andalucian white villages very worth visiting and
were suprised that it was al in very easy reach, the beach is about 25 to 30 minutes drive and because the way down or up the hills are part of a national parc we very much enjoyed the drive.

We played biljartpool, watched a Dvd and made use of the books available about Spain and Andalucië.

Beautiful getaway with stunning scenery

  • 5 out of 5
Magnificent!! what more can I say. Right from the work go the owner was very helpful and courteous, seeing that we had all the correct information. We received a useful welcome pack that had clear and concise directions. There was also an option for a food package which was ready and waiting for us at the villa. It only took us 50 minutes from the airport and after navigating the windy Spanish roads we approached "Casa Estella".

Wow!! Me and my partner were both stunned by the beautiful views of the mountains and lakes, with the villa situated in a wonderful location. We went inside and things only got better, we were greeted with a spacious and contemporary living area (which remained remarkably cool, even when it was 38C outside!!), the bedrooms were clean and tidy with some well designed features. We ate on the outside eating area most nights and had a great view of the setting sun as it drops behind the Spanish mountains.

We spent most of our time outside relaxing under the perfectly blue sky or swimming in the crystal clear pool. The local village was just a short walk away, with its quaint narrow streets and open village square. Which had orange trees ripe for the plucking!!

All in all it was the best holiday either of us have been on and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone

A Wonderful part of Spain

  • 5 out of 5
It was the first time we had been to this part of Spain and it definately will not be our last. The views are fantastic and the people in the local village of Canillas de Aceituno so helpful and the restaurants well recommended.
The villa was lovely, a beautiful pool and the ice machine welcomed as the weather was very hot! The villa centres around the pool area which we spent many a day lounging around and enjoyed our BBQ's and relaxing on the patio at night. The Welcome Pack was great and Rachel very helpful indeed buying us extra as we had a late arrival.
We had a wonderful holiday and wished we had longer to stay at this beautiful villa. We shall definately return.

Real Rural Spanish Retreat

  • 4 out of 5
We spent a brilliant ten night stay at the end of June 2011. The Cassa is in a great rural location, far enough away from the crowds, yet close enough to access vital amenities. We rented cars through malagacar.com, who were reasonably priced and problem free. The cars, not 4x4;s, coped fine along the road to the Cassa. We found the Cassa large enough to accommodate our group of 6 adults, 2 children under 7yrs and a baby. The pool was the highlight for the children, and again was big enough for us all. Canillias de Aceituno is a friendly rural village, an insight into real Spain. I shall miss the bright stars at night and the symphony of crickets that accompany. The horses and the goats, as neighbours. Fond memories of a real rural idyll.

Canillas is a very friendly and hospitable village with about 3 restaurants and more bars, several greengrocers and general stores and 2 butchers, a chemist and 3 banks. A fishmonger announces his arrival with opera music blaring through a tanoy! A 20 minute drive takes you to several large supermarkets/ shopping centre with a cinema and an Aqua park. Riding, fishing and sailing on Lake Venuela. Golf is nearby as is scuba diving.

Torre del Mar is 20 minutes away with beach restaurants good shopping and bars but there are also several small quiet beaches along the coast. Nerja and its famous caves are worth definitely worth a visit. (25 minutes). Malaga (Picasso birthplace) less than an hour for shops or culture. Also the beautiful Alhambra Palace in Granada (1.5 hours through lovely scenery) or Sevilla (a couple of hours). Hiking and mountain biking in the Sierra Tejada National park which is behind the villa. Eagles and goats can be viewed from the terrace.
