The south - west facing villa enjoys probably the best views over the lake and mountains. The modern living accommodation is on one level with a fully equipped kitchen, lounge/dining room and two twin bedrooms, bathroom and one double bedroom with en suite bathroom, terrace and balcony. Patio doors from the lounge lead to a large terrace with BBQ and steps leading down to the good size pool with sun loungers on the lower terrace. The pools are surrounded by attractive gardens and terraces. This small and unspoilt area of Andalucia –to the north east of Malaga - is still a well kept secret. Untouched by mass tourism, and surrounded by National Parks it is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty between the Sea and Sierras. Only 15 minutes to the Mediterranean coast, and 35 minutes to Malaga international airport. Due to good motorway connections, Granada and Antequera can be reached in 1 hour, Cordoba and Seville in 2 hours.
Two luxurious detached 3-bedroom villas built alongside one-another less than a kilometer from the whitewashed village of Los Romanes. Fully equipped kitchens with all modern amenities (including highchair playpen and travel cot available for family groups) and comfortable lounges make these villas perfect accommodation all year round.
Each villa has its own private pool, extensive terrace with BBQs facilities and breathtaking panoramic views of Lake Vinuela and Mount Tejada beyond.
Los Romanes has several very good restaurants, small local supermarkets, local bakery and butchers, village bars and olive mill. There are more excellent restaurants on the lake shore. The villas are superbly located near to an excellent connecting road network giving very easy access to all main centres including Marbella (60 - 70 min)and Granada (90 mins). Being only a 15 min drive from the coast, these stunning holiday villas have the best of both worlds. Large reductions for long term rentals.

C'est un endroit magnifique, la vue est impressionante, et c'est un plaisir de se réveiller chaque matin, face au Lac de Vinuela. Je recommande cet endroit qui est vraiment très agréable, et cette maison, qui est très bien équipée. J'ai passé une agréable semaine. Dommage, la piscine était un peu froide (fin avril) mais en pleine saison, la piscine doit surement être très agréable.
Merci pour votre accueil.
Enjoyed our stay at Casa Pantano. Beautiful views and all our needs were catered for. Thank you
I have mixed feelings about these two villas, luckily we chose the Pantano which looked in much better condition than the run down Vida alongside. Whilst quite nice and reasonably well equipped, some TLC is desperately needed to maintain them.
The description is a bit misleading in so far as distances and access to restaurants and the lake etc which are quoted 'as the crow flies' the narrow winding roads are the only way to get there and certainly not within reasonable walking distances.....I could nearly throw a stone into the lake from the villa yet it is a 40 minute walk to get there. That said however the views over the lake are to die for and I'm glad in a way the descriptions weren't accurate because we likely wouldn't have booked this villa if they had been. We did have a lovely relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings but we normally choose villas where we have a choice and I don't have to drive to every restaurant so that we can walk and enjoy a drink.
Having no working english satellite tv channels the entire time is another story but that was eventually sorted on our last day and should be ok for future guests.
We had a glorious week in the gorgeous Villa Casa Pantano. Everything we needed was here for a week of sun, swimming and relaxing in perfect peace.
When we arrived very late at night, we were a little disappointed to find that there was no basic supplies provided - bottled water, milk and bread would have been welcome. The BBQ gas also ran out and the promise of replacement gas came to nothing.
We stayed at Casa Pantano in may 2015 - the views from the villa have to be seen to be appreciated - they are truly spectacular!
The Villa is very comfortable with all the mod cons - we have absolutely no complaints.
During the stay we had to ring the owner for a minor problem with the keys (all our fault). We spoke directly with the owner who could not have been more helpful despite the fact we rang around 9pm at night.
If you are looking for a relaxing break in a comfortable Villa with AMAZING views, this is the place for you.
Stayed here for the last 2 weeks in September and had a great time. Villa is just as described and easy enough to find, about 50 mins for me from AGP. Any little faults were quickly dealt with by Ian and it was a very relaxing time and great weather away from the coast and crowds. Plenty restaurants to choose from and a great butcher about 5 mins away. Visited my favourite restaurant in the area Cantueso in Perrianna again. I did not venture that far as I just wanted to relax but Cordoba and Alhambra are in easy reach. Hypermarket Eroski at velez is 20 minute drive. Be back again thanks Ian and Teri
This is a really pretty area with green rolling hills and the dramatic mountains of the Sierra Tejada rearing up across the lake to twice the height of Mount Snowdon, occasionally you will see buzzards soaring across the lake from their homes in the rocky heights, smaller birds of prey are quite common too. You need only cross the lake to the 'Natural Park' where the walking is said to be un-equalled anywhere in Spain. In the Spring the fields are carpeted with the prettiest wildflowers you've ever seen. Throughout the year, but especially in August, there are lots of festivals and carnivals to which the locals will welcome you with typical Andalucian warmth. The local beaches stretch along the whole of the coast, there is a great water park with huge slides in nearby Torre Del Mar, and the town of Nerja offers spectacular caves to visit, not to mention the 'Balcony of Europe' and the trendy Burianna Beach.
