Overview

About the property

For peace and quiet with breathtaking views. A well equipped, private, villa.

Set in 9000 m² of its own olive groves, you are guaranteed a peaceful and relaxing time at Casa Laura. Offering disabled access, Casa Laura is a secluded air conditioned villa with its own private swimming pool solely for your use. The villa benefits from not having nearby neighbours so peace and quiet is guaranteed. The property is only a 15 minute drive from the attractions of Almunecar; with its shops, beaches, tapas bars, and restaurants. Casa Laura is situated in authentic rural Andalucia with all the amenities expected in a modern villa. A private concreted road leads to the property and parking is available right on the doorstep. To make your visit as as smooth as possible we provide a meet and greet service. Our villa manager will arrange to meet and escort you to the villa and introduce you to the facilities on offer. The villa is built on one level, with easy disabled access throughout the interior, including the bathrooms and the patio and pool areas. The interior comprises of 3 air conditioned bedrooms, 3 good bathrooms, including a wet room, and a utility room, all connected along a wide colonnaded corridor. There is an large kitchen area complete with a large central cooking island, a dining room and a comfortable lounge. To the exterior are landscaped gardens, five extensive patio areas around the property with multiple al-fresco dining options, the villa also has a courtyard, and a gas-fired BBQ and it's own private pool. We can provide a grocery shop in advance of your arrival at the villa and this can be arranged upon request.

Ambience: Casa Laura sleeps up to 7 people. It's a large, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom villa. Casa Laura is a wonderful family home equipped with free WiFi available throughout the property. All bedrooms are air-conditioned with newly installed equipment. The property enjoys professionally landscaped gardens, a herb garden for your use all set in its own private land. It's only a 50 min drive from Malaga Airport to Almunecar and the villa is situated only 15 minutes drive inland from Almunecar's beaches; the villa is situated within its own plantation of olive groves surrounded by avocado and mango trees. It's not overlooked at all, so it's exceptionally quiet and private with fantastic views of the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, and the hill farms of this special part of Andalucia. One particular attribute, is the complete lack of light pollution; this makes stargazing exceptionally rewarding. The Milky-Way and the many shooting stars that appear are clearly visible and are a sight to behold. We provide a telescope for your enjoyment. Maybe after a good meal, a few chilled cervezas, perhaps a glass of vino or two, then the warm and mellow background often makes for a special, romantic, evening. Bird life is abundant with a range of species including Buzzards and Eagles.

Remember we have free WiFi for those who require internet access.

Our facilities: We have traveled the world, from Australia to California, from Sri Lanka to Normandy. We value quality, we expect and believe that we offer and deliver an ambience that you would expect when committing to a vacation: a peace of mind that affords relaxation, cultural stimulation, and above all privacy; particularly after the many months of stress and fatigue that one endures prior to a well earned break. We have strived to deliver these qualities in creating our villa escape. We have carefully and empathetically selected the position of our property, with environmental consideration paramount in the design and construction of the building itself. We have taken care to offer to you the best facilities available, from professional espresso machines, to iPod docks, a super modern kitchen, a comfortable living space, and two bathrooms of the highest quality. We have recently invested in an elegant dining area which comfortably seats eight. In short, all the things that will make your visit comfortable, enjoyable relaxing and memorable.

We have a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, and two further bedrooms - one with a double bed and another bedroom with two single beds. We also have 2 roll-away beds, and a cot. Casa Laura has three bathrooms, a dining room, a lounge and a magnificent open plan state-of-the-art kitchen with a large central prep and cooking island.

Almunecar has many historical sights including Phoenician, Roman, and Moorish aqueducts and fish factories, and even has a castle overlooking the whole area. Almunecar is an interesting town for the visitor, it has good shopping facilities, a charming old town, and plenty of good supermarkets. Horse riding facilities are available nearby and if you wish to take a guided horseback tour into the foothills of the Sierras, these excursions can be easily arranged.

Casa Laura is ideally situated for exploring the attractions of the local area and it's genuinely a lovely place to return to after a day of activities. On the other hand many guests prefer to stay at the villa simply relaxing and enjoying the sun and the pool.

Casa Laura is registered in the Registro de Turismo de Andalucía. In Andalucia registration of all holiday rental accommodation is required by law. Registration means that the property meets the high standards set by the authorities covering safety features , the facilities being offered, and legality of the property.

Casa Laura is legally registered and fully meets all standards set out by the authorities, so ensuring complete peace of mind when choosing the villa for holiday accommodation.

Excellent House in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Laura is a truly beautiful house in a wonderfully authentic part of Spain. The location is absolutely breathtaking and you will frequently find yourself quietly taking in the fantastic views. The house is extremely private and is set within lovely gardens. The drive up to the house is initially a little tricky but soon becomes second nature. I should note that you most definitely need a car if staying in this house/ part of Spain.

The house has every amenity you could possibly require - in particular the kitchen terrace was a beautiful spot for both breakfast and evening meal. It should also be said that Morag, the housekeeper, is a fantastic host and was always at hand should you need any assistance.

It is very hard to find any fault with this property. As a family, we find it much more convenient to rent a house than stay in a hotel or apartment complex. Casa Laura is without doubt the best property we have stayed in thus far.

A Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a family holiday at this amazing villa.

The views from every single window are even better than described - it's secluded and totally private - a perfect get away from it all.

My husband is a very fussy cook and the kitchen was equipped with everything he needed. Not just the kitchen, but the whole villa was of a very high standard and everything provided was in an "as new" condition.

Neighbours we did meet, and the lady who looks after the villa, were friendly and helpful.

The very last bit of road is a bit windy, but managed it absolutely fine in our little hire car. And the views and privacy you are rewarded with are absolutely worth it!

The whole experience of booking this villa has been smooth, faultless and completely satisfactory and I would have no hesitation in recommending that you book this villa.

Car: necessary

There are numerous beaches that stretch all along the coast, some are well developed, others offer little apart from surf and sand. All beaches are accessible by car. Sand and shingle make up the majority of the beaches. The area is still very Spanish, and you are much more likely to be sharing the beach with a family from Granada. Taking it easy, nice and slow, is the order of the day. Some Good Fishing. Almunecar is a thriving Spanish town, still very Spanish and largely untouched by the tourist community. There's a good indoor market 6 days per week, which is the place to go for seafood.There's a large outdoor market each Friday until lunchtime. Restaurants and bars are warm and hospitable. There are plenty of water sports activities along the Costa Tropical where activities include kite surfing, paragliding, scuba, snorkelling, fishing and water skiing. Almunecar has many historical aspects including many Roman structures. The town has a good museum, a bird park, and a jazz festival.

Golf: There are 2 golf courses within 40-50 minutes drive of the villa. Los Moriscos course at Salobrena and La Baviera course is near to Nerja. Further amenities are available around Granada.

Ski: The Sierra Nevada skiing area is north of the house towards Granada. Its about a 40km drive to the resort, where the usual ski hire facilities, cable cars, bars and restaurants are situated. Snow boarding is especially popular with local sports enthusiasts.
