The accommodation is beautiful & well kept, with great facilities, but the location is really what makes it. The views over the mountains are fantastic & keep changing as the light changes. The sunsets made me want to take up painting!! It was magical watching the sun set over the mountains while listening to the bells from a herd of goats in the field nearby. Canillas de Aceituno is a lovely Moorish village about 5 minutes away by car and there are restaurants and bars there. The coast is only about 40 minutes drive away. Loved the Sunday market in Nerja! I really hope to go back and explore the area some more. Or maybe just relax by the pool...

It was everything my family and I had hoped for and more. The rustic house itself is very spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with all the facilities you would need for your stay. The garden was an absolute joy, whether we were playing in the pool, relaxing taking in the views on the balcony or having lunch in the outdoor eating area it was an idyllic setting. I could sit taking in the mountain views all day long. I cannot recommend Villa Amores enough, all the family had a wonderful time and would love to go back again. It was also a pleasure dealing with the owners George and Daniel, who made the stay as easy and painless as possible.

The generous size of the living areas and stairs makes the villa feel enormous – you wouldn’t know anyone else was in the house when you’re tucked away in your room. All the different outdoor spaces were excellent for peace and quiet. Directions to the villa from Malaga airport were accurate & easy to follow. The best restaurant we found was Los Cabales in Villanueva del Trabuco. In Antequera, we had an excellent meal at Arte de Cozina. The local village is a fair step, and you might not want to walk back after a meal. Take a torch if you plan to. The pool was bracing but a lovely extra and much used by all of us. The kitchen is well equipped, with basics provided. Brilliant location for visiting Granada, Cordoba, Seville, the Torcal at Antequera, the Caminito del Rey, Ronda, Sierra Nevada and Malaga.
