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.
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!
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.
Nice house, complete with terras swimmingpool and beautifull view
Highly recommended. Firstly, the location is stunning. Perched on the mountainside, the views down into the valley and up into the mountains are second to none, and whilst there is a house next door, it retains a feeling of seclusion. The pool has almost an 'infinity' feeling as the land drops steeply away. The outside area is spacious and great for relaxing in the sun (or shade). An earlier comment about noisy dogs next door did not reflect our experience. The next-door neighbour was very friendly and helpful -her dogs were fine (im no dog lover either) and they were no cause of disturbance. The local village (20 mins walk, <5 mins drive) is picturesque and has a few options for eating or drinking out, whilst the house itself is well equipped for cooking or bbq. The owner, Linda, was incredibly friendly and helpful with quick responses to any questions. We were very glad to have chosen this place and would happily return if we have an opportunity.
What a great place! We wanted to escape August Bank holiday and at the end of the week we didn't want to leave, ever! A great location with stunning views, beautiful sunsets and starry nights! The villa is close to the local village for restaurants, shops etc but is set in such tranquil surroundings. It has everything you could need and Heather next door can help with any problems - terrific, we will be there again, soon.
Eagles seen above the casa on day one . Star filled skies at night and good food at 3 restaurants in the local village of Canillas.
Facilities excellent and villa well equipped with everything you need. You couldn't ask for anything better.
Heather next door is amazing and will help out in any way. She is an absolute Gem. It's a home from home and would most definitely return again and again.This was our second visit in 12 month's almost to the day. A perfect location to laze away the day's by the pool, visit the beach and enjoy the ambience of the local 'White villages'.
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.
