Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Valle del Guadalhorce - Loma la Parra

Five bedrooms with air con. Five bathrooms. Countryside luxury in old Andalucia

Loma La Parra is situated at the heart of Andalucia's most beautiful areas of mountains and lakes and set in several thousand square meters of private land, between two protected areas of extraordinary natural beauty, El Chorro and El Torcal and just 30 minutes from the famous, spectacular walkway, "el caminito del rey" or Kings Walk. Local activities include, horse riding, mountain biking, climbing, walking, water sports on the lakes, arial sports, sightseeing and shopping and golfing in nearby Antequera. Within easy reach are Malaga, Granada (the Alhambra and snow skiing), Cordoba and Seville, the coast and Gibraltar. Alternatively, just relax, soak up the sun and enjoy your peaceful surroundings; the views, the village life, the house, pool, barbecue and gardens.

Golf: Antequera Golf is 20 kms or half an hour from the villa.

Alhaurin Golf is 30 kms or 40 minutes away.

Both are in the mountains with spectacular scenery.

Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved staying at Loma la Parra. The house is spacious and very well equipped. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom, a plus. The kitchen was everything we needed and we were able to do laundry, which is always a plus. But by far the best thing about the house is the patio/terrace and pool area. We sat each night on the terrace and had appetizers and drinks and talked about our day. We spent two pool days just relaxing and decompressing and they were the best!! We loved the town and Colin's recommendation to eat at Nescania turned out to be favorite for us. Colin was very responsive to our communications and so helpful with our planning. The highlight of our trip was the Caminito del Rey and Ardales Lakes, but we also enjoyed El Torcal, Los Arcos, Antequerra, and Ronda. The property is exactly as described and we could not have been happier. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Dear Denise, Jeannie and friends, We were very pleased to welcome your group of very lively ladies from California to Loma la Parra.. It was fun to be in contact with you and we are glad we were able to make a few suggestions although you had just about everything well and truly covered. You got to see many, many places and still found time to enjoy the house and the village, so yes, it sounds like a perfect holiday ! Thank you for spending your holiday at Loma la Parra. Our very best regards, Colin and Francesca.

Great house, excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

Loma la Parra is a lovely house, it's clean, well maintained, has great country views. The description given by the owners is an accurate and honest overview of the property and it is a great place for a family holiday.

Our family holiday - three genearations, age range from 9 years upwards - in July was superb, the weather was gloriously hot and Loma la Parra's excellent pool and barbeque were in constant use. Colin and Francesca were available (by phone) if needed but were otherwise non-intrusive. Having said that the information, advice and help they gave on the run-up to our holiday evidenced their intimate local knowledge and superb customer service... they are also very nice people !!!

A car is essential (well it was for us). Valle de Abdalajis is a mile or so away (downhill from the house) and has a couple of supermarkets, and local restaurants, but it's probably worth the half hour trip to Antequera for larger shops, including a hypermarket.

The property is well placed for lakes and walks including el Caminito del Rey - which is worth the effort.

I cant recommend this property highly enough. It really was a great place for a family holiday, the children loved it, the adults did too. Great house, great pool and excellent owners.

Vacaciones de relax entre amigos

  • 4 of 5

Somos cinco pareja de amigos, al principio una pareja no pudo venir pero se incorporo mas tarde.

Cuando llegamos nos estaba esperando en la casa Loma la Parra, Colin y Francesca (por cierto muy amables y agradables), la casa es una maravilla con unas vistas impresionantes del valle y el pueblo y equipada con todo lo necesario para pasar unas vacaciones, y por supuesto la piscina y su barbacoa que no le faltaba ningún detalle.

Conclusión todo perfecto para estar de relax escullando música, tomando copas, charlar, etc.

Volveremos a ir pero en distinta estación, muy aconsejable para visitar los alrededores de Valle de Abdalajis.

Saludos cordiales a Colin y Francesca

Wonderful home with great views and lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Loma La Parra with two other families and had a wonderful visit. The home was simply lovely and well sited to enjoy the beautiful views of Valle de Abdalajis, dramatic surrounding mountains, meandering country side filled with olive trees, and the passing goat herd on the nearby hill during several late afternoons. Our group of ten had plenty of space, but enjoyed gathering on the patio amongst the various sitting areas, ample dining area, and of course around the lovely pool with shaded area. The lounge chairs were very comfortable and the pool was very refreshing even in the heat of the summer. Seeing the milky way and shooting stars each night by the pool was a great way to end our days. We balanced day trips to Granada, Cordoba, and Ronda with time relaxing by the pool, and short trips into Antequera and El Torcal for a great hike amongst the unique rock formations. We enjoyed a special dinner at the Restaurante Plaza De Toros, dining with just a few other tables in the middle of the Bull Ring in Antequera - delicious meal featuring local specialities and wonderful service. Colin and Francesca were just delightful and so helpful while planning our visit, and also during our stay. They were always very responsive and pleasant. It is clear how special this property is to them and we are grateful to have called it home for a week. Their local family was lovely and one of our favorite meals was the gazpacho, paella and dessert they prepared for us. We enjoyed the air conditioning in the bedrooms but the house enjoys nice breezes as well. We recommend Loma La Parra and hope to return one day - Thank you Colin and Francesca!

Owner's Response: Suzanne, Dan, friends and family, We were in close contact for several months whilst you arranged your very comprehensive tour of Andalucia and northern Spain. It was always a pleasure to help where we could and we enjoyed your enthusiasm very much. You arrived from the USA and appear to have taken in the majority of Spain's historical, iconic cities and sights while still finding time to relax at Loma la Parra which provided a base for your excursions in the south. We understand your young son speaks some Spanish and we have no doubt this added to your understanding of this wonderful country. We want to thank all of you from your three families for choosing to stay at our house. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. Our very best regards, Colin and Francesca.
