Wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

I went for a long weekend in October and it was really relaxing & peaceful. The accommodation is beautiful & well kept, with great facilities, but the location is really what makes it. The views over the mountains are fantastic & keep changing as the light changes. The sunsets made me want to take up painting!! It was magical watching the sun set over the mountains while listening to the bells from a herd of goats in the field nearby. Canillas de Aceituno is a lovely Moorish village about 5 minutes away by car and there are restaurants and bars there. The coast is only about 40 minutes drive away. Loved the Sunday market in Nerja! I really hope to go back and explore the area some more. Or maybe just relax by the pool...

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit and I had yet another wonderful stay. The views and sunsets were amazing. The surrounding area provided many excellent places to visit including beaches and mountain villages. The local village had good bars and restaurants, in particular La Maroma. The casita is so quiet and peaceful, but Heather was always on hand when needed with advice. The description was accurate, the property clean and well maintained. Excellent customer service and would definitely recommend to others. Beryl D

A mountain idyll

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely relaxing weekend; I have never seen more stunning views place and the casa is very spacious and comfortable and the nearby village has lots of good eating places. The sunsets are unbelievable from the terrace and Heather in the adjoining property is very helpful - nothing is too much trouble. I would highly recommend a stay in this beautiful mountain retreat.

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.

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.
