Overview

About the property

From 2 to 10 people, three floors, calm and space, comfort and luxury

The view is panoramic and the various terraces you can enjoy the peace and space to our house. As one of our guests wrote in the guest book: "We enjoyed your beautiful home! Each evening enjoy the different kinds of colors in the sky. And the peace. You can always find somewhere to sit around the house. " (Average customer rating a whopping 9. 2 (google on LaJirafa and Micazu).

Our house has three floors. On two floors is a bedroom and terraces. Downstairs there are two bedrooms, a bathroom and a terrace. Nice for when you go on holiday with several people but still want privacy.

The large windows in the living room will make you both inside and outside to enjoy the beautiful hills, the sea on one side and Vinuela Lake on the other side.

For winter evenings there are the fireplace, comfortable sofas and a large flat screen TV (with more than 200 movies). A dining table (extendable to 2. 30m) with more than enough space for 10 people. Super fast Wi-Fi ensures that you can always keep in touch with family and friends.

Of course you can enjoy the wonderful climate and beautiful nature around the house. But within half an hour's drive are many beautiful towns and cities to visit.

Pay attention:

- La Jirafa is on a hill and is surrounded by a low wall. Rambunctious kids can go on this run and fall. The pool is beautiful (see photos) but also applies that the risk of falling for (small) children is present!

- The access road winds after you from the main road, through some villages. The last 700 meters, his half hardened. Usually ride fine but after rainfall is equally cautious driving.

- La Jirafa secluded location but not lonely. Closest food shops in La Vinuela (about 15 minutes), large shopping mall half an hour (large supermarket, Lidle etc.).

All major sights of Andalusia and Granada (with the magnificent Alhambra), Seville, Malaga and even Tangier in Morocco to visit good! If you visit La Jirafa in the winter months, it is also within two hours on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada.

Great villa but extremely isolated with dangerous roads

  • 2 of 5

Fantastic villa with great views equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. However really only suitable for parties who wish to be completely isolated from any civilisation! We timed a 17 minute drive from the main road on narrow winding roads with steep drops on either side without safety barriers!! The 2 drivers in our party were both experienced. This led us to return back to the villa before sunset at 9:30pm to avoid driving these roads in the dark. Therefore we were unable to have any sort of nightlife during our holiday.

We had previously emailed the owners regarding the roads as they were mentioned in another review and they assured us that they were safe.

In addition there are steep drops around the poolside therefore unsuitable for children - there were 4 in our party.

Due to the above issues, we ended up finding alternative accommodation for the second week. When we contacted owners to advise the situation, they were unconcerned and instead wished us the best with our new accommodation.

Large, comfortable villa with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable 17 night stay in the Villa. The four double bedrooms are all large, some with extra beds, and so the property was very spacious for our family of five. Jan had been very helpful prior to our stay.

The villa is well furnished and equipped - we didn't eat in very often but I am sure, had we wished to, we would have found all the herbs, spices and general cupboard ingredients we would have needed. The Villa operates a help yourself "use some - leave some" policy which seemed to work well.

The access road to the Villa is a little daunting, but we soon got used to it and the views make the journey worth it! They are spectacular and truly 360 degree! The villa boasts several terraces which have been well designed to take advantage of the vistas. The small pool is lovely.

We would certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone who wants to "get away from it all"!

An Amazing Villa with unbelievable views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent almost 4 weeks at this Villa Dec/Jan. We were looking for a property we could call home for this extended period during the off-season from which we could do day trips to explore the region as well as just sit and relax to enjoy the location. Well, this property hit the mark in every regard. It is a well appointed, up-to-date, very nicely furnished, roomy villa which is in very good condition. It's situation on a knoll affords it an amazing 270 degree view encompassing mountains, hills, valleys, a lake and the Mediterranean Sea! Even after 4 weeks we could not get enough of just sitting on one of the 12 (yes twelve) sitting areas watching the sun rise, sun set, and the surrounding country side. Surrounded by olive and almond trees we got to watch the local farmer harvest and maintain their olive trees and on the way up to the villa you drive through Avocado and orange orchards with an endless supply of fresh produce. The drive up from the main road to get to the villa is somewhat narrow and step in places, but after the first few trips you get very use to it and the local drivers were very accommodating when you met them in a tight spot.

When not spending time enjoying the views, we did day trips to nearby popular sights in the Malaga, Granada, Costa Del Sol/Tropical region. Lots of beautiful white villages, tones of seaside coastline and beaches to explore, easy access to Grenada and Ronda (both amazing towns) and we even went to the local caves in Nerja which we would highly recommend, they are spectacular! The location is also fantastic for hiking around the local hills or the surrounding mountain ranges.

Jan, the owner was fantastic to work with while making the arrangements and was very responsive to all our questions and needs once we had arrived.

We would highly recommend this property which is suitable for couples wanting a romantic getaway right up to larger family groups with no risk of feeling cramped.

Rust, ruimte en zon

  • 5 of 5

LaJirafa is een heerlijk huis met panoramisch uitzicht. Ruimte is er omdat er drie verdiepingen zijn. Met 2 stellen en kinderen was dat heerlijk: iedereen heeft zo toch z'n eigen plek! Ook buiten zijn er meerdere terrassen zodat er privacy genoeg is! Ruimte is er ook doordat het huis op een heuvel staat wat prachtige uitzichten oplevert. De avondluchten zijn te mooi om op de foto te zetten: adembenemend.

Het huis is schoon en van alle gemakken voorzien: een goede wasmachine en droger zijn aanwezig. voor de liefhebber van lekker koken: goede messen, pannen en verder alles wat je nodig hebt om lekker te kunnen koken.

Heel mooi!

  • 4 of 5

Zeer compleet huis op een prachtige plek. Het is prima onderhouden en alles ziet er netjes uit. Er is plaats voor maximaal 10 personen en het huis beschikt over een eigen zwembad. Er is de hele dag door de mogelijkheid om in de zon en in de schaduw te zitten. Vanuit de locatie van het huis zijn verschillende uitstapjes te maken. Malaga, Nerja en Granada zijn aardig in de buurt. Sevilla, Ronda en Gibraltar zijn ook te doen al is dit wel 1,5 of 2 uur rijden.

Luxe, rust, ruimte en vrijheid

  • 5 of 5

De rit door het heuvelachtige landschap brengen ja van asfalt, steen, kiezel en zandweggetjes naar deze prachtige statig ogende villa. Het uitzicht is fenomenaal te noemen. Je kunt bij heldere dagen heel ver kijken en zelfs de zee zien.

De villa is zeer compleet en luxe te noemen. Alles is aanwezig. De vele verschillende terrassen en zitjes geven op elk moment van de dag de mogelijkheid om van de zon te genieten. De keuken en het aanwezige servies is compleet. Er is airco in het huis, maar ook mogelijkheden voor verwarming via de stenen verwarmingsplaten en er is zelfs een open haard.

De slaapkamers zijn ruim, allemaal voorzien van voldoende kastruimte en op zich uniek ten opzichte van elkaar. Er is ruim voldoende slaapplek voor 8 tot 10 mensen.

Kortom, een echte aanrader! Of je nu met z'n tweeën er heen gaat (zoals mijn vriendin en ik) of met een complete familie.
