Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Canillas de Aceituno - La Casita de Las Colinas

Lovely 2 bed semi detached traditional house and private pool.

Tucked away down a winding lane 25 minutes walk or a 5 minute drive from the pretty village of Canillas de Aceituno with wonderful views from the pool and patio over Lake Vinuela, La Casita offers spacious accommodation and marvellous seclusion.

The interiors are light and airy with beamed ceilings and traditional features such as a log burner as well as a modern kitchen.

There are 2 spacious bedrooms , one double and one family room with 2 4 foot beds. This room can sleep 4.

Outside there is a lovely covered terrace and BBQ area which incorporates an indoor/outdoor kitchen. Next to this is the fabulous pool and terrace and seating area where you can enjoy the views up to La Maroma and across the valley to Comares, the highest village in the area, and Lake Vinuela which changes colour with the seasons. The sunsets viewed from the outside terrace are magnificent.

The best of ALL worlds

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this beautiful casita , and once again it just took our breath away and then some.

It's hard to find the words to describe how awesome a stay this was, in fact watching the sunrise over the valley and looking out at the wonderful 360 view of loveliness was quite emotional and actually made me cry, just breathtaking.

The casita and its location ticked every possible box. We wanted peace and tranquility , tick! SPECTACULAR views, tick. Clean and tidy, tick! Access to quaint and traditional Spanish villages , minutes away, tick! A choice of beach resorts a short drive away , tick! Great choice of restaurants, tick!

Even with all these choices on offer it's really hard to drag yourself away from such a beautiful and relaxing villa , we wish we could have stayed there forever ....in our dreams .

The casita had everything you could possibly need with a great selection of books, cds, dvds and board games.

Extra large fridge and freezer so you could just stock up , sit back and chill. Can't wait to return one day. In the meantime we have our photos to remind us of a wonderful holiday. THANK YOU

Don't hesitate in booking, thoroughly recommend.

The location of the La Casita villa is superb with absolute stunning 360° views over the mountains and only a few kilometers to the lovely village Cannillas de Aceituna, where you will find a restaurants and small shops with everything you need.

The Casita is well equipped with all you need inside although we spent most of our time at the spacious outdoor area, enjoying the views, the changing lights, the starry nights and the cool breezes from the mountains. Loved everything about it and our teenage boys cherished the large pool on the hot July summer days. And Heather next door is gold – always very kind, responsive and helpful in any matter.

Definitely a place we would love to return to.

Totally Idyllic Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

After more than 20 years renting holiday properties in this region of Spain, this has to be the best. The location and surrounding country is timelessly glorious. The position of this beautiful casita, on a high promontory overlooking the valleys below and shielded by the imposing mountains behind, giving surround sunshine from early morning to very late evening and wonderful gentle breezes all day making even the very high summer temperatures so very comfortable day and night.

The casita is very well appointed with more than everything you need . The pool is large and very well maintained, encouraging 2 hours a day full on swimming and the lovely little Moorish town is only 5 minutes by car. If you want sea to go with the sun, the coast is 25 minutes away by Velez Malaga which is a thriving town with amazing shopping facilities and wonderful beaches that go on forever. Probably a bit far out if your want a raving night life, but if you appreciate the fascination of the ever changing light and shadows in the valleys in the evening, eating good local food and drinking fine local wines whilst listening to the goats making their way up to their farm across the valley for the night, then there is nowhere better.

The re-assuring and helpful presence of the lovely lady in the adjoining property made this the most relaxing holiday ever.

The perfect honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

I can't tell you how relieved we were to find the villa as private and beautiful as the photos made it appear. Heather as others have commented was lovely, helpful and even offered to grab our essentials from the village of we wished. Yes she has dogs but they were just as nice as her, and with the exception of the odd excited bark, silent. The villa was clean, tidy and very cool at night. The village has everything we needed with some lovely restaurants. We are planning to come back with the rest of the family next year, plus a little one on the way, and can't wait!

Wonderful week in a welcoming villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Property exceeded our expectations. Had everything we needed for our stay. Property was clean and well maintained. Owners were very helpful and Heather next door was welcoming, knowledgable and nothing was too much trouble.

The pool area was spacious and had everything we needed and the views of the mountains and villages were spectacular.

This nearby village provided everything we needed with friendly bars and restaurants. In fact all the places we visited, both villages and coastal areas had lovely restaurants and bars.

I would highly recommend this property to friends and family. A wonderful holiday.

Canillas De Aceituno is located in the Nature Reserve of 'Sierra Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama'.

It sits high on the slopes of La Maroma, the highest of the mountain range and hence offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

It offers countless possibilities for activities such as trekking hiking, canoeing,speleology etc.

As usual in Andalusia, the village has many fiestas(holidays) as well as a Carnival, which is held in February,Canillas de Aceituno has its unique fiestas.

One such is held on the last Sunday in April to honour the patron saint ' La Virgen de la Cabeza'. This day is also known as, Dia de La Morcilla, when free beer wine and morcilla(black pudding) is served.

In August there is the main 4 days fiesta. Finally around the 7th or 8th September we have 'Candelaria' (Bonfire night).

The Moorish white washed village is a maze of cobbled lanes lined with orange trees and dotted with bars, restaurants and local stores offering fine local produce. There is a bank with ATM,a pharmacy and municipal pool with bar/restaurant at the end of the village.

The village is over 1000 years old and evidence of its ancient past can be seen at the House of the Moorish Queen in the square by the Town Hall and also the Arab well located in a building just outside the village passed The Bodega restaurant.
