Casa La Era a house in a rural location yet only 10 minutes walk from village sq

Bedrooms 2
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

La Era a truly enchanting place with fabulous views of the countryside..!

Charming house/villa, set in open countryside with fantastic views of El Torcal Mountain and surrounding farmland, 45 minutes North of Malaga. The villa is set up for that "Al Fresco" style of living with private pool, BBQ and sun terraces. However surprisingly the house/villa is only ten minutes walk from the traditional Spanish village of Villanueva de la Concepcion with all amenities. The "watchword" at La Era is total tranquillity and relaxation you are only likely to be disturbed by the twittering of birds and the tinkling of bells on the goat herds as they wander by.

Complementary WIFI available and a private swimming pool.

Please note: No Dog is in residence at Casa La Era.

(No hay perros en CASA LA ERA, no se aceptan animales domesticos).

Some past guests comments:

" Belle et confortable propriété ayant vue à 360 degrés sur les montagnes dont celles du Torkal."

“It is 5 minutes walk from Villanueva where one can find all sorts of shops and restaurants.  

“.the town has everything you need right on your bars with tapas where fab”

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nous avons passé deux séjours de 3 semaines au mois d'août dans la villa Casa La Era, à 3 puis à 4 personnes (2 adultes 2 adolescents 16 ans). À chaque fois nous avons été enchantés. La villa est très propre et bien entretenue et il y a tout le nécessaire pour se sentir comme chez soi (l'accès wifi est un véritable plus)...Casa la Era est située au calme mais a proximité de toutes les commodités : commerces, restaurants et bars à tapas. Proche des axes routiers principaux , Villanueva de la Concepcion est idéalement située pour se rendre à Antequerra, Malaga, Grenade, Séville, Cordoue.. Et quel plaisir après les visites de pouvoir se rafraîchir dans la très belle piscine! Pour ne rien gâcher, les propriétaires sont des personnes adorables toujours prêtes à rendre service!

We spent two stays of 3 weeks in August in Villa Casa La Era, 3 and 4 (2 adults 2 teenagers 16 years). Each time we were delighted. The villa is very clean and well maintained and has everything needed to feel at home (wifi access is a real plus) ... Casa la Era is located in a quiet but close to all amenities: shops , restaurants and tapas bars. Close to major roads, Villanueva de la Concepcion is ideally located to get to Antequerra, Malaga, Granada, Seville, Cordoba .. And what a pleasure after visits can cool off in the beautiful pool!

Lovely villa and friendly welcome and care

  • 4 of 5

La Era is a well equipped, clean villa and a very comfortable place to stay. Facilities are good and the air-conditioning in the double bedroom was very welcome. The villa and pool are very well maintained and the nearby presence of Senor and Senora Ramirez was reassuring - and very, very welcome when the only real problem we encountered came along - the hot water boiler completely failed and they found and installed a new replacement in less that 24hrs and even offered us their own home for showering facilities in the meantime! The views are stunning and the centre of the peaceful and welcoming small town of Villanueva de la Concepcion is just10 minutes walk away and has a good supermarket as well as butchers, bread, pharmacy, hardware etc shops, and restaurants. We found a bit of an annoyance with the neighbours dogs which barked sometimes for an hour or more at a time and sometimes in the night and, during our visit, there were roadworks going on outslde the house on the rural but well-used road but neither of these things were, of course, were in the control of the owners. The English translation service the owners use enabled our emails or texts to be responded to very quickly and efficiently. The owners are building a further small house on the site which will make it a good location for, for example, those wanting to share a pool with others - but they weren't building during letting of the current villa so all was quiet! We had a good holiday in a beautiful part of Spain.

Everything is to a good standard in the house. However, I wanted and requested a rental in the country, for fresh air, which is what I thought I was getting. When I arrived I found the house chock full of air fresheners, so the whole place was a smog of vile claggy smells. Even after I had bagged up all the air fresheners, the bedrooms still were overpowering, and the sofa too. I had to be careful not to lean on it, as it would release a cloud of air freshener every time. As I couldn´t sleep in the bedrooms I was forced to sleep on the floor of the main room. As I particularly requested fresh air, I was somewhat disapointed. If that was the only issue, I´d probably give the house a begrudging 4 stars. However, next to the house, and not, to my knowledge, in the pictures, is a kind of brick construction. It is quite large and pretty ugly. Behind it is a dog kennel of sorts. On the other side of the house is the henhouse. I am sure the description will be updated soon to include all these facts.

When I arrived, I found out the house came with a dog. I was offered to have the dog relocated. I was however happy to walk the family dog as it was good exercise for me. (I didn´t bill the landlord).However, the whole issue of Spanish animal welfare is a difficult one for us northern Europeans, and to have it in my face for a month was pretty unpleasant. The relentless howling and hoarse barking of dogs in Andalucia is troubling enough in itself, but I had to look after a dog that seemed to have no other purpose in life other than as a mammalian alarm system. The poor creature was housed outside in all weathers, in an open-ended kennel. When the wind was whiping off the mountain on freezing cold January nights, I felt abject pity for the poor creature. I wanted to buy it a nice bone from the butchers, but apparently the dog was a strict vegetarian, so that got kiboshed. I was aware of the dog at all times actually. If I left it housed in its quarters at night, it howled and barked a lot, so it was better to let it roam the whole enclosure of the house. As a result it would camp outside the back door of the house. The dog would wake me early in the morning with its whimpering. It would often leap up at me in a desperate quest for affection. It was a big powerful dog. I don´t know quite what else to say. There are two scaggy probably flea ridden cats that seem confined to the house enclosure, and this sad dog. I think if you don´t like animals, don´t have them.

Owner's Response: We are very disappointed and surprised to receive this negative review particularly as these issues were not raised during your stay with us. We can't rewind what has happened or change the strength of your feeling on these issues, however we would like to add the following comments – the property is of good quality and the air fresheners were there because we take the presentation of the property seriously. We are sorry that this was not to your liking and that you felt it impacted your ability to enjoy your stay, had the issue been raised at the time we would have endeavoured to assist. In respect of the dog, you opted to have the opportunity to keep the dog and never indicated otherwise during your stay. Again we are sorry that this was not to your liking and will consider whether it is appropriate to offer guests this option in the future. We will take your comments on board and hope that you will return to enjoy the beautiful Andalusia in the future.

Petit bijou et Havre de paix

  • 5 of 5

Notre première fois dans cette magnifique région d'Andalousie. WOW. Casa La ERA est vraiment un trésor pour l'hébergement. Tout était parfait...propreté impeccable, confort a quelques minutes du village. La vue est à couper le souffle, la piscine nous rafraîchit en fin de journée, et les dîners al Fresco le soir devant ce paysage splendide. Difficile de trouver mieux qualité/prix. La villa est bien équipée pour 4 personnes. Le wifi est rapide. Seul petit bémol le jappement des chiens du voisinage qu'on entend. Pas insupportable mais peut déranger votre tranquillité. Aussi la conduite en voiture sur chemin rural en épingle dans les montagnes peut s'avérer stressant pour certains conducteurs.

M. & Mme Ramirez sont très accueillant et d'une gentillesse extraordinaire. Merci de nous avoir fait profiter de votre petit bijou de casa. À recommander sans hésitation.

Un havre de paix

  • 5 of 5

La maison est très jolie et elle bénéficie d'une vue imprenable.. Très propre, très confortable avec une piscine super agréable.

Elle se situe à 5 mn à pied de Villanueva où l'on peut trouver toute sorte de commerces et de restaurants.

Et surtout, des propriétaires Ana et José, d'une gentillesse extrême, toujours prêts à vous aider et à rendre

votre séjour le plus agréable possible. La maison est bordée par un grand jardin ou l'on peut se servir sur les

arbres fruitiers (avec l'accord des propriétaires). C'est plus qu'une maison, c'est un havre de paix...

Bravo ... A refaire au plus vite !

Owner's Response: Translation The house is lovely and it has a breathtaking view .. Very clean, very comfortable with a super nice pool. It is 5 minutes walk from Villanueva where one can find all sorts of shops and restaurants. And above all, Ana and José owners, extremely kind, always willing to help and make your stay as pleasant as possible. The house is surrounded by a large garden where you can use the fruit trees (with the agreement of the owners). This is more than a house is a heaven of peace ...!! Bravo ... A remake soon as possible! Aurore & Philippe Merci d'avoir pris le temps de partager votre expérience avec nos futurs clients. C'était un plaisir de vous rencontrer. Dans l'attente de votre prochaine visite. Many thanks for taking the time to share your experience with our future guests. It was a pleasure to meet you. Looking forward to your next visit..

Nous avons passé 10 jours très agréables, repos, soleil mais pas trop chaud. La maison est très confortable, très bien située, très bien équipée. Le Wifi fonctionne très bien, nos 2 ados étaient heureux !

Anita et son mari sont aux petits soins, je vous conseille la paella maison qui est excellente !!!

Le coin est super, El Torca et Antequera sont à visiter absolument !

La piscine est très belle et bien entretenue.

On cueille les figues et autres délices dans le jardin...

Bref, je conseille cette location sans reserves ; vous y serez bien:)

Un grand merci à la famille Ramirez pour leur accueil et leur disponibilité !

Muchas Gracias !

Car: recommended

LA ERA, a charming cottage is located in a rural setting, however it is only 10 minutes walk to the main village square of Villanueva de la Concepcion.

It has free WIFI and a private swimming pool. The property will also consider long lets.

If you are looking for a romantic or a tranquil getaway then LA ERA should be your destination ...!
