What a lovely break

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Lisette. It's a bit off the beaten track, but well worth the effort. David has thought of everything and the house is fully equipped with everything you need...and more.

We sunbathed, read, slept, walked into Almachar for coffee and watched DVDs in the evening...day after day...it's what I wanted and what I got ;-)

Paradise in Rural Almachar

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Casa Lisette at twilight and the views were spectacular! A great start to a wonderful fortnight. All previous comments are correct in its description of this beautiful house.

Thank you David and Debra for sharing your property and giving us the wonderful experience of exploring Almachar and meeting Francisco and his friendly mule.

Also thank you to Lara and Oscar for being at the end of the phone when needing help with directions and information.

We will definitely be back with our family.

Absolutely Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful hilltop location! Arrived in the dark and it was still a Wow! moment. Superb villa, waking up to views over the surrounding villages and mountains. Close enough to see the Mediterranean and a short drive (17km) to dip your toes in it. A dream kitchen, spacious accommodation and three bedrooms. The Pool area with sun loungers and inflatables, BBQ and Pizza Oven, a choice of four terraces to relax on. Local villages of Cajiz and Iznate with shops, bars and friendly people too.

There's​ maps and lots of information on the local area in business card folders on the bookshelf most with recommendations by those that went there.

Loved it so much we will be going back....

Excellent accommodation, phenomenal views, very relaxing and well equipped house.

  • 5 of 5

David was very helpful communicating with us prior to the holiday, when we arrived Lara met us and advised us about events happening on the area. We had a fabulous week, the house is beautiful and the views are breath taking. The drive to access the house takes a bit of getting used to and I would not want to have found it in the dark but we did get used to the drive and it was certainly worth it.

Highly recommended.

Best property in which we have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

We had quite possibly the best holiday we have ever had at Casa Lisette. We booked last minute but the owner David was really accommodating, as were Stuart and Margaret the property managers (even when we locked ourselves out owing to a freak gust of wind slamming the door shut behind us!).

The house is quite simply stunning and the pictures barely do it justice. The living room is huge and beautifully furnished. It has wifi, huge flat screen tv, surround sound, huge choice of DVDs and a great cd collection. The kitchen is a cook's dream and is equipped with everything you could ever want (except a coffee machine, so we bought one and left it there for future guests as we loved the place so much). Bedrooms lovely (memory foam mattresses etc) and bathrooms really well appointed with good pressure showers etc.

And then there is the outside. 6 terraces, all beautifully landscaped and a pool and views to die for. Quite simply stunning.

Another reviewer mentioned that the route there gets a little precarious for the last couple of kms when you pull off the road onto a dirt track. That's true, but you just have to take it steady in the car and you'll be fine. The fact that it is off the beaten track means that you are guaranteed a peaceful and relaxing stay. Just stock up with good food and wine at one of the big supermarkets down at sea level every couple of days or so.

If you're a couple, family, or group of friends and want a relaxing holiday away from it all, I can't think of anywhere better.

Paradise Found in Andalusia

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 3 fantastic weeks at Casa Lisette and it is the most amazing rental property we have stayed in! The views are breathtaking, down to the coast on one side with beautiful sunrises each day and views of Almachar and Iznate from the other and spectacular sunsets. The house itself is beautiful and charming and is so well equipped and spacious, a real home away from home. Lovely comfy bed in the master bedroom, we slept like babies right from the first night and the shower was so powerful compared to some we have experienced, even the bath filled up in under five minutes! The Lounge was very spacious with plenty of seating, the kitchen was amazing and we loved the BBQ area and shaded eating place with views down to the village. The lovely pool was a godsend and kept beautifully clean by Stuart who was always on hand if we needed anything. A fellow Northener, his wit and warmth as a property manager helped make our stay enjoyable.

Only 30 minutes drive from the beautiful beach at Benajarafe, which we love, Casa Lisette really is perfectly placed for a tranquil get away from it all holiday but with easy access to the beach for a change of scenery.

Almachar is a beautiful white village only 2.8k away and can be walked easily (even in flip flops!) when the sun's not too hot, the road is windy and up and down a bit and the narrow streets up to the top of the village are steep but it is well worth the walk. We had tapas at 2 of the bars on the square and lunch twice at a lovely restaurant with a covered terrace opposite the church with wonderful views of all of Almachar. There's a supermarket and a few souvenir shops as well as a mini bank, butchers and fishmongers as well. Truly Lovely place to visit when you're here.

The approach to the house is not unlike a roller coaster and could be daunting if it was your first time, but as seasoned travellers to the area we knew what to expect and just took our time in our Corsa, admiring the stunning scenery on both sides. It was well worth the ride when we saw Casa Lisette for the first time.

David was very helpful and quick to respond to all our enquiries prior to our trip and we are grateful that he decided to share his lovely home with holidaymakers this year or we would have never found this beautiful paradise which we wish to return to again next year :-)

The best rental we have stayed in and the best location by far since we started coming to Andalusia six years ago.

The house is situated between Iznate and Almachar

Almáchar is a town and municipality in the province of Málaga, part of the autonomous community of Andalusia in southern Spain. It is the capital of the moscatel raisin area.

Almáchar is situated in the heart of the Axarquía at 200 metres above sea level, 35 kilometres from Malaga city and 14 from Vélez-Málaga. It is built on a small hill between the El Borge and Iznate, close to the Mt Morona and surrounded by vineyards, olive and cereal groves.

Both Iznate and Almachar have many bars of which all serve food, trundle down the narrow white washed streets and explore.

Other places of interest are the Plaza del Pueblo (town square) where, if you look in the direction of El Borge village, you get a beautiful, panoramic view; the Cueva del Toro (the Bull's Cave), found on the outskirts of the town; the Museo de la Pasa (Raisin Museum), which is considered of archaeological interest; and the town fountain where according to the local legend, the Moors buried their treasures before being expelled from the land. Have ride up to Comares which is one of highest village Andalusia.

Heading down to the coast, Torre del Mar is the nearest resort from the casa. Restaurants, bars line its beautiful promenade.
