Terrifying roads, shady pool and german cable package

  • 1 of 5

Terrifying roads….. The roads up this Finca are steep. Even by the normal Spanish mountains standards, the last three sections of road were very dangerous and reduced me to tears. I have driven in the mountains many times before but this place is the most daunting I have ever encountered. It also spoilt our holiday as we couldn’t go out in the evening and trips out in the day time was quite unnerving. I did think I might be a coward until the cleaner nearly ran her car off the road on our last day and cursed the final road up to the place.

I did contact the owner to ask her to strengthen the warnings of the road on her advert before I left this review as I don’t want to be critical but wished someone had told me before I had booked.

It is a shame because the house is lovely and the letting agent in Spain was so helpful and kind. The views were good, though sadly shaded by the trees and bushes round the property when you were sitting on the terrace.

The other negatives were that the pool was in the shade of the trees which meant the water was cold and collected the leaves and insects.

For us, being English, the cable package is al in German which is fine if you speak German.

All in all, Sayalonga was a picture. The area is great and the beaches nearby wonderful. It is an easy drive from Malaga and the couple looking after the place are wonderful. Nevertheless, I would find somewhere else in the area and find out before you book just how difficult the last few roads to the house is – its these roads which are narrow and have steep drops on one side and sheer rock faces on the other

Beautiful private casita - Sayalonga

  • 5 of 5

So my partner and I wanted a lovely, private, romantic holiday in Spain - after days and days of intense searching I was lucky to find this 'little gem'.

Great communication with the owners regarding booking and easy booking process- only negative point was booking was payment through BACs transfer which my bank charged £10 for. However- pretty simple and safe.

We flew into Malaga airport - a really big modern airport with plenty of duty free and shops, I booked a hire car through inter-rent- I was quite nervous regarding this as I had read dreadful reviews. We did however have a great experience with them.

We booked a little Fiat 500 and in hindsight really should have booked a larger engine as the drive to the casita was pretty scary- NOT for the faint hearted. Steep concrete/ windy roads to the property was not enjoyable. Over time we became more and more confident with it but I would advise a more powerful car for this.

On arrival we were met by Gitte who was fab, really helpful and had tips for our holiday- she gave us her number and was happy for us to contact her if we had any problems.

The property was absolutely beautiful, modern, and perfect for a couple. Great open space at the front of the house where the sun shines over from morning until evening- The waist high pool was great for cooling down. The view of the mountains down into sayalonga is spectacular and most nights we spent watching the sun set- very romantic and quiet.

We spent most days out- Nerja was an easy 15 drive down the modern highway, amazing place for tourists with great restaurants, shopping, cafes, beaches etc - highly recommended.

Mijas is also within approx 50 mins- a little hill top traditional Spanish town with breathtaking panoramic views down the mountain and quaint Spanish charm definitely worth a day out.

During our holiday we found some 'off the beaten track' hidden beaches which had amazing snorkelling. Research these beaches before you go- if you like succluded quiet beaches for the locals rather than tourist filled commercialised ones then there are many out there.

We walked into Sayalonga twice for an evening meal- this is pretty hard going unless you are quite fit- very steep hills but worth it as you'll find fig and avocado trees on your walk down.

We had the most amazing holiday - if you are after out of the way, private and romantic definitely for you.

Thanks to Brigitte and Juergen - we had an amazing holiday, hoping to return

Perfect peace and quiet couples get-away

  • 5 of 5

Indoor accommodation is ideal modern and airy with a well equipped large open plan kitchen, dinning and living area and separate bedroom and shower room. The outdoor accommodation is very secluded with a bbq and a small adult waist deep plunge pool that's a perfect place to cool down in. We brought inflatable rings from Decathlon and it was great fun floating in the sun with a rum punch in hand.

The location up in the hills is ideal to get away from the busy Costa del Sol seaside area and we found we preferred being by our pool than by the sea. Easier to get a drink, get some shade or go to the loo! And no worries about leaving your belongings on beach while you swim. And it was hot so we needed refreshing dips often.

The drive up is exciting and really makes you feel your in a remote place but its still easy enough to go down to beach or town. Only 10 minutes walk down the hill to Sayalonga and really only 20 minutes to walk back up the at times quite steep roads.

Sayalonga village was full of very helpful people. They even opened the supermarket for us when we arrived during the afternoon siesta! And the Bar - Restaurante Palustre felt like a authentic locals pub but we were welcomed by the friendly owner and we visited it everyday and not the other venues targeting the tourists.

We only stayed six nights at this property in order to go on holiday at a convenient time to us and Juergen was very helpful enabling us to stay one night at his other villa Finca Solimar. As was the Uli their local contact who helps manage the properties and drove in-front of us to show the way Casita la Colina. The first night we stay at Finca Solimar property number 24607 to read my review of this one. It's just a good!

So get on a plane, load up the hire car stock up on food and drink and ICE and relax!

Stilles Refugium im paradisischen Andalusien

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr hübsch eingerichtet, von dort ist das Meer schnell zu erreichen und die Städte Granada, Malaga und Cordoba liegen höchstens zwei Stunden Fahrt entfernt. Antequera, den Caminito del Rey und Ronda erreicht man über malerische Bergstraßen. Sayalongo selbst ist ein malerisches Örtchen mit schönen Lokalen. Die Vermieterin schickte uns seitenweise Tipps für Ausflüge, gutes Essen und nicht so sehr besuchte, schöne Strände. Wenn man genug gesehen hat und nur ausruhen möchte, kann man das auf der Terrasse in der Sonne oder im Pool ganz einsam und ungestört tun. Ideal für ein Paar, das einmal für sich sein will!

Die Auffahrt zum Häuschen ist allerdings etwas abenteuerlich – die Straße wird immer schmaler und steiler, die Kehren immer enger – es empfiehlt sich, ein kleines Auto zu mieten. Dafür hat man dort oben seine Ruhe, frische und kühlere Luft und eine atemberaubende Aussicht. Uns hat der Urlaub sehr gefallen!

Entspannung pur bei Sonnenschein und Bergblick

  • 5 of 5

Wer dem Massentourismus entgehen will, ist hier genau richtig. Das Ferienhaus lädt wirklich zum verweilen und entspannen ein. Nur Abends verfliegt die Entspannung ein wenig mit den Mücken, doch einfach reichlich mit Autan eincremen und so sollen diese auch kein Problem mehr darstellen. Die Anfahrt zum Ferienhaus hoch ist etwas abenteuerlich, aber unser Mietwagen (Mitsubishi Colt) hat es auch mit Mühen geschafft, eine Unterbodenversicherung wäre bei der Mietwagengesellschaft ganz angebracht, da unsere Stoßstange öfter mal den Asphalt geküsst hat. Die abenteuerliche Fhrt wird aber auf jedenfall durch den Ausblick und die schöne Casita entlohnt. Durch die Vermieter fühlt man sich ebenfalls sehr gut betreut und sie sind äußerst freundlich. Vor dem Urlaub wird man schon mit reichlich Tipps aus erster Hand zu Stränden, Restaurants und Ausflügen versorgt. Von den Stränden hat uns der Playa Canuelo am besten gefallen, hier als kleiner Tipp der Verleih von 2 Liegen und einem Sonnenschirm kostet nur 8 Euro pro Tag und da es ein sehr steiniger Strand ist, wird das Verweilen dort mit diesen Liegen gleich angenehemer. Das Essen in dem restaurant am Strand ist ebenfalls sehr empfehlenswert und auch preisgünstig. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind von Fereinhaus auch gut erreichbar, ein Einkaufszentrum ist nur ein paar Autobahnabfahrten entfernt. Ausflugsmöglichkeiten wie Gibraltar, Cordoba, Sevilla, Malaga und Granada sind gut zu erreichen. Nach Gibraltar sollte man besser die bezahlpflichtige Autobahn nehmen, da man hier wirklich Zeit spart. Und als kleiner Tipp noch für Gibraltar, für diejenigen die auf den Affenberg wollen. Wir waren mit einem der Taxidienste oben, da die Warteschlange am Cablecar ewig lang war. Die Gebühren sind die gleichen, man spart sich Wartezeit und jede Menge Lauferei, da man hier direkt zu der Tropfsteinhöhle, zu den Affen und zu den Tunneln fahren. Desweitern erzählt der Taxifahrer noch ein bisschen was zu Gibraltar. Und ein Affe hat ein besonderes Verhältnis zu den Taxifahreren, dass er auch Fotos mit sich machen lässt. Es war wirklich ein wunderschöner Urlaub und die Casita kann ich nur weiterempfehlen.
