I went with a group of girl friends and spent the weekend sunbathing, enjoying drinks on the terrace and admiring the views. We didn't explore the area too much as we were happy to stay in the villa but there are many natural walks and the village is close by :) I would really recommend staying here.

The house is contemporary, spotlessly clean, with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. The roof terrace is the perfect place for a spot of sunbathing, while the very private pool offers a welcome chance to cool off. We loved sitting on the dining terrace with a glass or two of wine watching the sun set over the mountains. Absolute heaven. Canillas de Aceituno has a great choice of bars and restaurants and a host of friendly people. Suzanne made the whole booking process very easy and the information she provided was invaluable. We'd highly recommend it.

The villa is accessed via a 3-4km dirt track but is a short drive from the local town of Canillas de Aceituno and within striking distance of larger shops towards the coast as well as the beaches around Nerja and Maro. The house itself is huge and has lots of living/dining/relaxing areas so is perfect for larger families and groups. Martin met as at the property and was contactable throughout our stay, and we couldn't have been happier with the welcome or the property - if you're looking for a relaxing base in the hills from which to explore Andalusia it is absolutely perfect.
