We love its peace and tranquility surrounded by the olive and fruit trees. The view from the balcony takes full advantage of the elevated position of the house, looking over to top of Frigiliana and Nerja, over the Mediterranean and on a clear day you can make out the mountains of Morocco; just incredible. We were the in February so the lovely woodburner was very much appreciated in the evenings. The area is so varied with many things to see from beach resorts, to stunning mountain landscapes to fascinating historical sites. We love it so much that we are already booked for 2018!

A beautiful location and a base with all the amenities of home. The owner provides a welcome package including food and a bottle of wine, really appreciated. Hope to return in the future, and would highly recommend if you want a relaxing or busy holiday. Only downside for my wife and I, both late 60s was the steep gradients but we managed. Plenty of restaurants and bars and even better ice cream parlours to enjoy. Loved it.

We were so pleased with the facilities the villa provided, making it a real 'home from home'. It is really spacious and clean, with top quality furnishings and fittings. We enjoyed sitting out on the terraces with a drink and looking out at the breath-taking views down between the mountains, at Torrox Costa and the sea. The unmade road was a challenge to find and negotiate for 1.5kms, through 3 small fords and single hairpin drive up to the villa. Luckily, we arrived in daylight and quickly got used to it, so just enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area. The booking process was easy and communication great, so would highly recommend this villa.
