Beautiful, relaxing home from home

5 of 5
We had such a wonderful stay here! One of the most relaxing and peaceful places I have stayed- up in the hills and with incredible views over the countryside and to the sea. The terrace is such a beautiful hangout spot and perfect for meals, sunbathing and sundowners to make you feel a million miles away from London! Every detail in the house has been thought about - from the comfortable beds to the well stocked kitchen. The village is perfectly Spanish with a great selection of tapas bars, cafes, restaurants and beautiful streets to explore. The beach down at Torre del Mar is also within easy reach from the villa and the Tanit beach bar is a great place to spend the day, eating lunch and spending a lazy afternoon on their sun loungers. I couldn't recommend Casa Beni more! I just wish I had been there for longer!

We highly recommend Villa Amores, the owners have thought of everything and the views are amazing!

5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Amores! The villa was set along a track completely hidden from the road. The first thing that struck us all were the views, oh my goodness they were amazing! It was so quite, birds and the tinkling of the goats bells are the only things you really hear! We have stayed in many villas, however, this is by far the best, everything you could possibly need and more is provided! The bottle of Champagne was a lovely welcome and surprise. The village of Canillas de Aceituno was within walking distance and we enjoyed eating in the restaurants, great food and reasonable prices. We shall be back!
