Gorgeous villa in beautiful Andalucía

  • 5 out of 5
Magnificent place. Incredibly beautiful sunrise could be observed while drinking your morning coffee or after having your morning swim done. Would recommend to have your vacation during a full moon if you'd like to make some
memorable photos of this brilliant getaway place :)

It is hard to imagine a better place to spend your vacation if you are into the charm of Southern Spain.
An incredibly beautiful, authentically designed and well furnished house, in combination with breathtaking views from the terrace, a perfectly decorated and stylish garden and of course a nice swimming pool and plenty of entertaining stuff for the kids.

On more practical notes - spacious and well-equipped kitchen for preparing meals, cocktails and tapas. Living room big enough for everyone as well as very comfortable dining area inside. And a gorgeous patio outside, shaded with ivy and scented jasmin.
The pool and its surrounding area was enough for our party of 4 adults and 2 children aged 8.
The bedrooms are great with plenty of space for clothes, the beds are comfortable and the upper terrace is great for some relaxation.

Overall a very pleasant stay, and a perfect communication with our wonderful hosts Heather and Colin. Thank you!

So, muchas gracias Villa Amores and hopefully see you soon again :-)

Stunning location

  • 5 out of 5
The first thing that strikes you when arriving at the villa is its location. With views up the valley to the village of Canillas and down towards the distant sea it could have been built with the phrase 'peace and quiet' in mind. Throughout the day the only sound to be heard is the tinkling of the bells of goats on the opposite side of the valley. If you were looking for a relaxing break then this villa is ideal.
Inside, the villa is beautifully furnished, with beds so comfortable my wife wanted to take the mattress home. Everywhere was spotless, both inside and out, clearly well-maintained, with the pool-man coming during our stay to service the pool. The furnishings gave the villa a really Spanish feel and added to the sense of relaxation. We immediately felt 'at home'.
The kitchen was well-equipped for those like us who enjoy cooking at home, but the village itself (only 2 minutes by car) has highly-recommended restaurants serving excellent Spanish fare.
The villa has an excellent brochure of the main attractions in this part of Andalusia with, especially the villages of Frigiliana and Comares worthy of mention, and a trip to the Caves of Nerja not to be missed.
A word of advice, though, if you are a culture-vulture and plan to visit La Alhambra in Granada. If you did not purchase your tickets before leaving home don't drive all the way there 'on the off-chance' of buying them on the day. Tickets are always sold out. We made just that mistake during our stay, though the city of Granada provided a good substitute visit.
Overall, I cannot recommend Villa Los Amores highly enough. It is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the coast to be relaxing, but close enough to
them to be within easy reach. This is 'real' Spain.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ann and Alan for your kind words, it's very important to us that our guests have a wonderful stay.

After years of working in the travel industry and staying in the finest of hotels we wanted to create a holiday home which matched the high standards of comfort, style and service that we expect.
We have payed particularly attention to the comfort of the beds and have taken great care in choosing good quality mattresses, pillows and high thread count bed linen.

Thank you again for taking the time to write the review and choosing Villa Amores as your holiday rental, we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

A Beautiful Idyllic Serene Haven in the Mountains

  • 5 out of 5
This is the second time we have stayed at Villa Amores, the villa is beautifully kept with everything you need to make it your perfect holiday home away from home.

Great communications from Colin & Heather regarding the local & surrounding areas, where to visit, restaurants to check out, what festivals are occurring during the season so that you don't miss out.

Very much appreciated the welcome goodies, especially the bottle of wine !

The pool is so beautifully clean and a perfect size to cool off and have a good swim.

There are two restaurants in the village both are good and both owners and their staff made us feel very welcome, we loved the complementary bottle of cava which we received from La Makaroma we thought it was a one off but twice we received a bottle after our supper so don't be surprised to receive complimentary drinks after your meal !

We love it here and even though we'd really like to keep it a secret we highly recommend the charm of the villa and it's wonderful location twinned with the helpfulness of Colin & Heather and there attention to detail.

If your looking for a holiday that gives you a peaceful escape with glorious mountainous views but is still close enough to the beach (approx 25 mins) with a little village close by to dine out and stock up on the basic's and if you like superb hiking tracks, and wildlife, and the challenge of cycling up and down mountains like my partner this is defiantly the place for you.

PS if you have time you must must must visit the Alhambra Palace in Grenada it is absolutely beautiful top tip getting to Grenada is fine but a Sat Nav will really help you navigate your way through the city centre up to the Palace and back out !

Can't wait until next year roll on August 2014 !

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for 3 weeks and loved every single thing of the villa, the village and the surroundings.
The villa is very well equipped and provides all the comfort you need for an unforgettable holiday.
We would love to return some day.

A great week at Villa Amores

  • 5 out of 5
A delightful place to stay - characterful whilst being refreshingly 'kitsch-free'. Tastefully furnished and comfortable - a real home from home. Nice touches - high quality cotton bed linen and towels, and a welcome pack of basic food and milk to get you started

Well-equipped, and well-maintained with a good supply of all those day-to-day things you usually have to buy on Day One and leave behind.

The pool is great, and you never tire of the views over the hills stretching away to the sea 12 miles away. Children loved exploring the mature garden.

Tranquil and remote enough to be away from the bustle but near enough inhabitation for supplies (big supermarket 20mins drive) and a local restaurant in the village well-worth a visit.

If you are a walker, a well-marked and easy path up to the summit of the Maroma from the back of the village offers a 7-8 hour round trip to over 6500m - well worth the effort for the fabulous views and wilderness.

Beaches don't offer much - gray and rubbly - and we steered clear of Malaga but the hills West of Malaga and Ronda are well worth a visit, as is Granada and the Alhambra.

All in all a relaxing and highly enjoyable stay. Thank you!

Canillas de Aceituno
Car: necessary

Canillas de Aceituno is located in the Nature Reserve of 'Sierra Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama'. It sits high on the slope of Mount 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 Andalucia the village has many fiestas (holidays). As well as Carnaval, which is held in February, Canillas de Aceituno has its own 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 the'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 7th or 8th September we have 'Candelaria' (bonfire night). The Moorish whitewashed village is a maze of cobbled lanes, lined with orange trees and dotted with bars, restaurants and local stores, offering fine local produce.
