The villa is located in a rural position a 10 minute drive outside the village of Canillas de Aceituno .. this is the Real Spain!!!!! You will be driving on dirt roads for 3 km as you would expect in the rolling hills of Andalucia. The area is ideal for those looking for a retreat of tranquility and peace. Imagine yourself sipping cocktails on the roof terrace of this ultra contemporary villa, watching the sunset over the mountains. The pool area is surrounded by tropical vegetation and has its own wet room and toilet. On the same plateau is the decked area which is an extension of the lounge, great for chilling!
There are three ensuite bedrooms two queens one which has a bath and wet room plus one junior king ensuite where you can listen to music and watch television on your smart TV.
The main lounge also has a flat screened TV and DVD player with wall mounted music system. Also available is fast internet connection. There are high powered ceiling mounted fans in all rooms.
The kitchen is modern and fully fitted with all state of the art kitchen appliances.
Great versatile living in the quiet countryside with the up and coming white washed village of Canillas de Aceituno a ten minute drive away with its bars and restaurants. The nearest beach resort is Torre del Mar just 20 minute drive with its abundance of shops hypermarkets and nightlife.
And for the energetic the nature reserve of the historic Alpujarra mountain range, renowned for its walks, is literally right on your doorstep.
The track to the house is good with cemented drive and security gates. However we strongly recommend a crossover for driving the steeper bumpy tracks.

I now Live permanently in this wonderful home in the winter months and live in smaller property in Competa during the summer. I am 30 min drive from the house in case of any assistance what so ever!
Sharon Simons purchased this villa in 2006
Who would not fall in love with this amazing property, its location, the views and the beautiful countryside are breathtakingly amazing!
The contemporary feel of the property with its all frontal floor to ceiling safety glass is just breathtaking….allowing full views of mountains and country side
This is the nicest villa we have ever stayed in. Due to it being the actual home of the owners it has everything you could ask for and more. Every detail has been thought of and the owners were really helpful and friendly.The location is something else and the views are stunning. We were so relaxed after our fortnight there. We will be back!!!
This is the 4th visit to the area and we always book a villa with a nice pool and secluded position .and good views.
Well this villa had all that and lots more to offer ...well equipped kitchen 2 flat screen TVs one of which is a smart TV so handy to watch anything you have on your tablet ...the WiFi has a good speed and cable TV in the main room let's you watch any programmes that are on back in the UK .
Sharon who owns the villa was fantastic to deal with and met up with us to take us to the villa ...just as well as its right up the mountain and tucked away ...but once you follow Sharon the first time ..it's a lot easier to get back to it again.
This is a villa to rent if you want some peace and quiet...the nearest village is Canilles and about a 20 min drive away ..worth a visit for a lunch or a coffee .
We stayed for almost 3 weeks in this fabulous villa. We were met by Sharon, the owner, upon arrival and she took us to the villa. Sharon kindly got a welcome pack for us as we arrived on a Sunday and most of the supermarkets on the way from the airport were closed. However, the village of Canillas de Aceituno has small stores open every day and a wonderful bakery too. The villa was very comfortable (if a little hot due to time of year) and was very nicely decorated in a quite contemporary way and with Sharons love for art also evident. The pool is great and was cleaned and treated twice a week by a local couple who were very friendly.
The views are fantastic from the villa and the best time of day in August was from 6.30pm to 8.30pm as the sun was setting - sitting on the small roof terrace with a glass of wine was fantastic. The restaurant La Maroma in the village is excellent with fantastic staff.
The track to the villa is a bit bumpy but perfectly Ok if you take it easy even in a 1.2 Corsa that our friends had. We hired a 4WD which of course was fine.
Will definitely visit again - hopefully in a couple of years - thanks Sharon
Property very clean and comfortable
Charming owner, pool man and cleaner, always available
Only one critical point: the villa access, but it's easy to get used to it
A beautiful villa in a truly spectacular setting.
The mountains are simply stunning and, although the tracks up to the villa are a little scary at first, it is well worth the drive in order to have the views and tranquility. After the first day I actually loved driving around the area which is just so different to anything in the UK.
The villa itself is really well equipped, 3 spacious en-suite rooms and incredible views from the front room and main bedroom, which are hard to appreciate from the website photos. All very clean. Great pool. Very generous welcome pack on arrival. Lots of lovely areas and shade to sit around outside. Owner is excellent and gave us lots of help and advice including meeting u down by the coast to show us the way. Thank you Sharon!
The village is very small and we didn't spend much time there. Enjoyed Torre del Mar and Nerja whilst there, but mainly hung around the pool, which was all we needed!
After an interesting drive up the hill we were invited through the brown door by Sharon to be met by a spectacular view enhanced by the infinity garden.
Even though there is no fence to mar the view, the pebbles acted as a barrier for the enquiring minds of our young grandchildren. The villa is equally appealing and tastefully coordinated from whichever direction you look. The huge picture windows and doors throughout give an amazing inside outside feeling. Everything you need is on hand for a quality home from home experience.
We stayed for two weeks with one regret - it should have been three!
We’ve rented Villas for many years now and get luckier on each occasion.
Private villa located in the mountains with breathtaking views. Walking and mountain climbing. Historic villages, Beach, Water park, shopping Mall, Restaurants, Bars, Horseriding, Go- Kart and Caves all within 30 mins drive. A crossover car is recommended.
