Bedrooms 2
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, Sleeps 6. 3 balconies good sized

There are absolutely wonderful and intimate views of the Mediterranean from this beautiful house. Set on two floors, the panorama is enjoyed from all principle rooms and the 3 balconies. Set in wonderful, subtropical gardens, La Aldea shares use of the pool, found on the complex close to the house. Refurbished to a high standard, with new kitchen, furniture etc. Whilst many parts of the Spanish coast are being overdeveloped, this area has no high rise developments, only low level villas and intimate community sites.

Although heated, the lounge houses a natural fireplace for the winter months. In addition to the 2 bedrooms, a sofabed allows 6 people to stay. Close to beaches, yacht marina, shops, restaurants and cafes, La Aldea is an upmarket complex. We looked long and hard all along the southern coast of Spain to find the right villa to buy. We chose La Herradura and this house and think you'll love it to.

Great for children: La Aldea is set on the Punta de Mona headland. either side of this small, quiet promontory, can be found the unspoilt towns of La Herradura and Almenucar. both have nice clean beaches, cafes, bars, restaurants etc. the area is used widely by Spanish holiday makers and is largely unspoilt by the hoards of package holiday makers who visit the areas further west. ideal for families, couples, etc, who want to see the vibrant, 'real 'Spain.

A property with views to die for! Well equipped with everything you could need on a holiday.Clean and tidy with comfortable beds! Perfectly described by the owners. Contacting the owners was very easy and Rachel would reply to emails promptly. The local agent Louis was also easily contactable and very helpful with local knowledge. A 15min stroll takes you down to either the marina or the village of La Herradura that hosts an abundance of restaurants. Great water sports are also in abundance on all the local beaches. We would recommend a car as essential to explore the area properly. Fantastic 10/10 5 stars!

Excellent apartment, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the apartment for 2 weeks in June. It is very well maintained and tastefully decorated, with comfortable furnishings, beds etc and a well equipped kitchen. Luis, the property manager was without fault. He was always available, yet never intrusive. He let us settle in the first day then called by to check everything was ok. The first week of our stay was hotter than average and as one of our party is pregnant, the airconditioning was very welcome. Luis was on hand to ensure it was working for us. The pool area was clean, with the gardener keeping the gardens looking great despite the hot weather. Good restaurants are to be found on the beach front (the less glamourous looking ones do tend to be the best and most established, or the ones set further back from the beachfront), but we loved going to the market and buying fresh fish to barbeque on the verranda whilst watching the sunset. The locals are very friendly so a bit of Spanish goes a long way. The apartment is perfectly located for visiting further afield if you wish (La Alhambra, Cordoba, Jaen etc) but if you simply want to enjoy a relaxing holiday by the pool, this apartment is perfect.

I wouldn't hesitate in staying here again.

Beautiful vue, tastefuly furnished apartement

  • 5 of 5

Since this was the 3th time we have been spent our vacation in this property, we felt like being home in Spain. The apartement has an extremly nice vue from the balcony, the bedrooms are tastefuly furnished, the beds are comfortable and large enought. It is well equipped, such as washing machine and dryer, and as We have spent here more than 5 weeks, theese things were important to us. The location is just perfect, 15-20 minutes walk from the beach but in a very quiet are called Punta de La Mona, far from the little town noises. If you like being in rest, listening to the birds, lying on a gorgeous terrace and watching the see the whole day, if you don't minde having a nice walk into the beach - specialy when you are comeing back can it be a bit hard on the serpentine - this is the best place for you!

The apartement has got two nice bedrooms, nice kitchen, two bathrooms, it is perfect for two couples or for a family. I am sure we will be comeing back soon.

A Restful Property with Spectacular Sea Views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with two friends and had a wonderful ten days. The weather was glorious and so we made the most of the balcony and enjoyed the splendid views. The pool looked inviting and was used by guests in other properties but, with still warm sea temperatures, we spent long days on the almost deserted beach downtown. In the evenings it was easy to get a table at the many local restaurants but they were still doing good business and we enjoyed several local musical nights.

For the relatively short time we spent in the property itself, the kitchen was adequately stocked, the beds were comfortable, the tv worked and everywhere was very clean. We also noticed that a brand new washing machine and dryer had been installed.

This is the fourth time we have stayed and we have noticed how all the attractive trees and shrubs at La Aldea have matured. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay. Stunning far reaching views and very tasteful decor. We felt very much at home here not far from the bars, restaurants and beach yet far enough away for some peace and quiet. The kids loved the shared pool too!

La Aldea is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Very cosy house but not very clean especially the bathroom. No cleaning products available. Very nice and quiet swimming pool even in high season. We were there for 3 weeks in august. Walking to the nearist beaches is fine but going back uphill is very hard so you do need to use your car daily. Lots of very nice beaches close to la Herradura like Maro etc. It would have been nice to find a note to tell us about the super markets, nice beaches,etc,..Luis was very helpful. Lots of typical villages to visite and the Alhambra is a must see!! We booked our tickets during our stay but maybe better- more choise- to do it before leaving. The Moorich town nearby is also very nice so you do need to plan a whole day to visite both.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you found that the bathroom was not clean - I have spoken to our Manager Luis and we now have a different cleaner - our cleaner cleans the house every week to maintain the high standards that we have kept over the 10 years that we have rented the house out.

Nearest Airport
50 Miles
MALAGA (costa del sol)

Situated on top of the suprisingly green and lushous Punta De Mona headland, between La Herradura and Marina Del Este. Both are walkable though its a long climb back up hill and to far with shopping/grocery bags etc. There are beaches either side. The house is very quiet and in a truly unspoilt area. There are enough restaurants and bars in La Herradura for a different restaurant every night on a 2 week holiday, and even more in Almunecar and at the upmarket Marina. 55 minutes from Malaga airport, 50 minutes from Granada airport and 1hr 30 or so from Almeria airport, though Almeria has slower connecting roads. PERFECTLY situated. You wont be dissapointed.
