The photos cannot really prepare you for the shock when you walk through the gates. The view across the valley towards Canillas is stunning. The house is spacious, tastefully decorated and with fantastic comfortable beds. The white town itself has not been spoilt by tourism. A 10 stroll from El Encuentro and you are in a village with 3 restaurants ,lots of bars and a variety of all the shops you would ever need on a self catering holiday. The arrangements for the opening of the property by the caretakers were excellent. We have recommended this place within hours of returning home...............

Wonderful holiday home in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in this beautiful house - it’s in a great location. You have complete privacy, peace and quiet and fabulous views from both sides of the house (amazing sunrises and sunsets) yet you can walk into the local village in 10 minutes or drive up in less. The local white village is pretty, with friendly locals, some decent bars and restaurants and enough for local grocery shopping. The town of Velez Malaga (with an interesting old quarter) and El Ingenio shopping centre are both around 25 minutes’ drive away. It’s an easy drive from Malaga airport but once there you really do feel a world away.

The house was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen and more, plus lots of great outdoor and indoor spaces for eating, chilling out and a lovely pool area. We made good use of the binoculars and spotted golden eagles, vultures, other birds of prey and lots of butterflies. Swallows and swifts swooped down over the pool every evening and we never got tired of sitting out on the fabulous terrace looking at the stars. Owners Robin and Rita were friendly and prompt to deal with, as were the caretakers who met us at the house. We’d definitely recommend and hope to return soon.

A wonderful esape ....

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa in Canillas de Aceituno in mid June 2017. We were greeted warmly at the designated meeting point by the caretakers who were always on hand during our stay if needed, and from the moment we entered the grounds of the house from the gate at the front, nothing could have prepared us for the amazing views at the back out to the mountains, the valley and the whitewashed little village of Canillas de Aceituno - the photographs on the website give you a clue, but to see it in person is absolutely stunning!!

The villa is very spacious and so tastefully presented, with a fully equipped kitchen, amazing outside kitchen for those of us that enjoy the odd BBQ :-) comfortable bedrooms and extremely spacious bathroom facilities and space for everything (even if you over-pack like I always do .... never learn!).

We enjoyed swimming in the pool, relaxing on the luxurious sun-loungers and taking in some sunshine and shade in the expansive grounds ..... so lovely in fact that it was difficult to tear ourselves away from base. We never tired of waiting for the goat bells to sound, and trace the local goat herder through the binoculars up the mountains - a joy. The local village is indeed a mere 10 minute walk away, not a strenuous one and trust me, I am not a hill climber by any stretch of the imagination! Canillas boasts 3 restaurants with extensive menus and charming local service - wonderful.

If you can tear yourself away, it's a 25/30 minute drive to the coast of Torre Del Mar which does boast an expansive beach and is well worth a visit, and a further 25 minutes on will take you to Nerja. But frankly, I challenge you to leave this wonderful haven of peace and quiet and total relaxation. We have stumbled upon a little gem, our heartfelt thanks to Robin and Rita, and we will be back sooner than you think!

Ik had een super vakantie in deze woning die op een uurtje rijden van Malaga ligt.Een auto huren is wel een must.

Makkelijk te vinden en men voelt er zich direct thuis.

Het huis is heel net en alle gerief en meubilair is nieuw.

Men kan er genieten van heel ruime zuid gerichte terrassen en een heerlijk zwembad.

De vergezichten zijn inderdaad spectaculair en men raakt er niet op uitgekeken .

's Avonds gaat de tuin lekker geuren en de de tsjirpende krekels maken het zuiders gevoel compleet.

De buitenkeuken is een heel leuk pluspunt.De wifi werkt perfect.

Het dorpje nabij is wat basic maar men vindt er toch alle basisproducten.Een paar sobere maar lekkere restaurantjes kan men er ook vinden.

Het verblijf op het domein was zo leuk dan ik nauwelijks behoefte had aan uitstappen.

Houd men van privacy in een stille stijlvolle (Spaanse) omgeving dan is dit een een uitgelezen plaats.

Deze staat voor volgend jaar bovenaan mijn lijstje favorieten/

Na een weekje in deze villa te hebben verbleven(oktober 2014),kan ik niets anders dan lovende woorden schrijven.Vanaf het eerste moment heb je een echt thuisgevoel en kan je volop genieten van dit pareltje.Ben je op zoek naar privacy,stilte,comfort (luxe!) in een compleet uitgeruste villa:this is the place to be.

Alles kraaknet en super compleet uitgerust.

Schitterende vergezichten vanop de zuid- geörienteerde terrassen,afkoelen in schoon zwembad met buitendouche,buiten koken,...kortom alles wat je bij een relaxte zonnevakantie kan wensen.

Overdag geeft het gezoem van een bij en s avonds het getsjirp van de krekels een extra zuiders tintje.Schitterende sterrenhemel overigens.De tuin is prima onderhouden met verschillend goed riekende bloemen.

Internetradio en wifi werken perfect.

Het dorpje nabij verschaft je in een drietal winkeltjes de nodige basisproducten.Basic bars en resto's (eerlijke prijzen!) zijn er ook te vinden in dit rustige bergdorpje.(10 min te voet,licht bergop).

Goed contact met de eigenaars en prima ontvangen door de locale housekeepers.

Super vakantie

  • 5 of 5

We zijn hier drie weken geweest. Heerlijk huis wat met veel liefde is ingericht. Alles is aanwezig. Het huis ligt heel rustig en heeft een prachtig uitzicht. Terras met zwembad is erg sfeervol. Ook de buitenkeuken vonden we top. In de buurt de vele mooie steden die zeer de moeite waard zijn en goed te rijden zijn. Wij vonden het er echt super.

Riding, fishing and sailing on the lake Venuela.

Torre del Mar is 20 minutes away with beach, restaurants, shops and bars, but there are also several small quiet beaches along the coast.

Nerja and its famous caves are definitely worth a visit 25 minutes). Malaga (Picasso birthplace) less than an hour for shopping and culture. Even the magnificent Alhambra Palace in Granada (1. 5 hours through beautiful scenery) or Sevilla (a few hours). Hiking and mountain biking in the Sierra Tejada National Park, which is behind the villa. Goats can be viewed from the terrace.
