A great villa tucked away in the Andalucian hills. We were there in March / April so was a bit chilly in the evenings. Heaters were provided and plenty of wood for the open fire. Daytimes were warmer and we even braved a dip in the pool. Comares is only a short (if steep) walk away, with a couple of reasonable restaurants. There's a small supermarket in the town. You're not going to come here for the action, this is a place to really unwind, relax and chill out. There's wifi to get connected when you are not enjoying the peace, tranquillity and views over the hills. Malaga is an hour away; trips to Ronda and Granada are easy (although beware attempting to take the "scenic" routes following google maps, very scenic but we found ourselves on tracks that were little more than crumbling paths cut into the hillsides...)

The villa is well equipped (there are mugs, and too many egg cups!), it is clean and spacious. The road down to it is a steep track, but ignore the comment from the previous grumpy reviewer who complained it's like a Land Rover course, we were in a small hatchback and it was no trouble.

Fabulous Rural Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 3 month winter break at Villa La Cruz and would highly recommend it to to anyone looking relax, unwind and chill out.

Yes the villa is rural and the road to Los Ventorros and the track down to the Villa is challenging but it is more than worth it for the beautiful setting the spectacular views and the tranquility.

The villa is very private not overlooked and the only sounds you will hear are the sounds of the bells on the mountain goats in the valley below and "OTI" the resident donkey!

The villa is extremely well equipped for 8 people with high quality appliances with lots of crockery, glassware etc.

The pool is the gem of this villa lots of space with far reaching spectacular views of the mountains , olive groves and the surrounding area from every angle.

Restaurant El Molino is a five minute drive away where you will be warmly welcomed by Antonio Encarni and family and experience the local spanish cuisine, we highly recommend the Gambas Pils Pils.

The owners and management team are on hand 24/7 by e mail or by phone and any problems or issues that we had were dealt with efficiently within an hour so, we couldnt have asked for better service.

In conclusion if you want a relaxing , laid back and peaceful holiday this is the villa for you.

We are already looking forward to our return later this year.

Lovely, peaceful spot

  • 4 of 5

This is a very peaceful villa. The villa is comfortable and the pool is delightful. The owners are very good at responding to emails and special requests. For example, we felt we needed some more shade around the pool and within a few hours of asking an extra pool-side umbrella was delivered to the door. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation spot with a beautiful view, this is the place for you.

a let down

  • 1 of 5

having stayed in 50+ villas this was only the second we disliked. Poorly equipped, just one tea mug! not a single egg cup. no instructions on how to use anything. the iron leaked water (a real hazard) .the drive from the road would have put the Land Rover test ground to shame. it was not possible to eat outside as there were hundreds of wasps. then the lack of any shade untill 4.30 was a real no shower dribbled water, the other was not able to be fixed on the wall (this i repaired with a tube of glue) you only get local tv. so take lots of books. if none of the above worries you then book it, the air is fresh up there.

Owner's Response: Guests of all ages are welcomed personally on arrival by the owner Encarne & this couple of 71 and 73 years of age were no exception. During their stay of 9 nights these guests made no contact with Encarne, Ant or Carl ( available in person, by phone or online) to say they were unhappy about anything at the villa. Our customer service is high but we cannot put right any shortfalls if we only receive a complaint via a very disappointing review after the guests have left. Our comments: There were 3 mugs as well as 6 English tea cup & saucer sets, 8 coffee cups and over 30 assorted glasses. No eggcups. Apologies, there are now 6. Unbeknown to Encarne the iron was broken. Apologies. A new one now provided within one hour. There are 3 sunshades & bases! Both showers work perfectly. Land Rover drivers need not get excited; the owners both own VW Golfs and drive to the villa all year. A TV, music system, DVD and WiFi is provided. Yes, there is fresh air in the countryside! This review is at best unfair and unbalanced & at worse not factual. Villa is as described & reviewed by all other guests. May not be suitable for Victor Meldrew.

Stunning scenery, quiet and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us stayed for two weeks at this stunning little jewel in the mountains. We ranged from

age 14 to 50 and we all thought the place was amazing. The scenery around about the Villa is breathtaking and it's a perfect place to relax and unwind. We loved it so much that we are intending to go again next year. We were a 5 minute drive to the wee village of Comares where there's a little shop for the essentials and in Los Ventorros there are 2 little restaurants that are quite different with their food but equally as good as each other. Velez- Malaga is about a 30 minute drive away which is certainly not a weary drive as again the countryside is stunning and there is always something new to see no matter how often the road is travelled! You can find all your larger shopping outlets and lots of restaurant etc in Velez- Malaga and Torre del Mar (which merge into each other) as well as the beach. We love the rural setting but if you want something a bit more lively then this wouldn't be for you. The swimming pool was a real asset and I'm not sure what we'd have done without it as it was extremely hot at times so it was perfect for colling off and having a bit of fun! The only downside which isn't really a problem when you get used to them is the mountain roads...definitely not for the faint hearted!! An amazingly stunning place....well worth a visit

Owner's Response: A well written & informative review that should be helpful for potential visitors considering a holiday at Villa La Cruz. I am pleased that the 2 bar/restaurants in Los Ventorros, walking distance from the villa, were appreciated. Handy for tapas, lunches and serving dinner until late. Thanks for taking the time to write Norman and we hope you will visit again.

Very enjoyable return visit

  • 5 of 5

Two years ago we said we would be back, and so we did this June. Everything I said in my review back in 2014 remains true and can recommend Villa La Cruz without hesitation. Extensive stretches of the higher mountain roads appear to have been resurfaced within the last 2 years which makes for an even more pleasant drive on and off the hills for day trips. We were fortunate to be here for Noche de San Juan and joined in the fun on the beach at Torre del Mar. We also made return visits to Granada, Seville, Cordoba and Ronda which are easily reached using the free-flowing motorways - in 2 weeks we did not see a single traffic cone. This year we spent more time relaxing around the pool feeling very much at home. I am sure we will be back yet again.
