Very beautiful small cottage, tastefully decorated in the style of a traditional Andalucia finca.

  • 4 of 5

Booking and arrival very efficient. Boz could not have been more helpful. Th finca and grounds are beautiful, quiet but not isolated. Views and orientation excellent. Heating provision for the winter months very good and the wood burning stove is excellent.

This is the perfect house for a family with two children. The inside accommodation is tight though and two unrelated couples might find the space and lack of a second bathroom just a bit cosy! Probably not a problem in the warmer months when the outdoor space comes into its own.

All in all this is a lovey place and we would certainly return.

Perfect setting, walking distance into Frigiliana

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful homely villa with lots of outside space, 20 minute walk into Frigiliana along the main Torrox road - not too busy, or 30 minute walk if you walk initially away from Frigiliana and then turn left onto the public footpath trail. Frigiliana itself is a beautiful town with plenty of good places to eat and drink - we'd highly recommend the Garden Restaurant and Oshun, both on the higher levelled streets but worth the climb with sunny terraces and great food and service. Great area for walking too with many footpaths around the hills (and up them) with great views and particularly fun if you choose the some of the gorge footpaths (Rio Higueron and Rio Chillar) which sometimes involve wet feet and a little waterfall climbing. We have fallen in love with the area and are planning our 6th annual visit already. Would highly recommend this villa for proximity and ease of access into town, and the villa itself and outdoor space is just fabulous! Perfect for us.

Had a wonderful time at this villa with our two daughters. Such a wonderful relaxing setting - can highly recommend. The villa is very clean and very well maintained. Equipped with everything you could need and great pool. Loved all the different outdoor seating areas the villa has. Near to Frigiliana, but out of the hustle and bustle. Really enjoyed the surrounding area- lots to do and see if you want to - or just stay at the villa and soak up the views. Will definitely be back!

A mountain hide away, away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

Two weeks away from it all, peaceful, private and absolutely delightful. The villa has everything you need, the weather was glorious and the pool was where we spent most of the day. We did not venture far, we did not need to. The walk into Frigiliana is further than anticipated but we did it ....once. Luckily Boz happened to drive past just as we set off back up the hill and gave us a lift up! If you want to get away from it all I would highly reccomend this property.

Fantastic holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Villa.

Boz and Polly who manage the property could not have been more helpful. Thank you both.

We had the pleasure to meet with Carmen, one of the owners, who provided us with a lovely gift of wine produced by her family.

The Villa was very comfortable and was equiped to a standard beyond which anyone could expect.

The location of the Villa in the hills surrounding Frigiliana offers both tranquility and easy access to all the facilities you might want.

I really could not fault this Villa/holiday in any way. In deed we booked 3 more weeks in 2018 before we left!

Do yourselves a big favour and book this Villa, you will be so happy you did.
