Overview

About the property

3 bedroom villa, faces south, has fantastic views over a valley towards the sea

Casa Amapola, meaning Poppy House, faces south, over a valley towards the sea. It is a modern spacious 3 bedroom villa, all on one level, located between the villages of Cajiz and Iznate. It is set in the countryside, just 7kms inland. There are olive and almond trees around the house and fruit trees at the bottom of the land. There are good sized outside terraces to the front (which is covered) and the side which is the best spot to enjoy the sunset whilst sipping a glass of vino. The living area is modern with comfortable sofas, free to view TV, Wifi Internet, a CD/ & DVD players, a wood burning stove, large dining table and 6 chairs and open plan fully-fitted kitchen. There are two good sized double bedrooms; (one ensuite) and a bunkbed room. The family bathroom has a full size bath and shower over. We also have a cot, 2 x high chairs, baby bath and a carry/car seat.

Hiring a car is recommended for you to fully appreciate the area but if you just want a 'get-away-from-it-all' holiday then airport transfers can be arranged with a supermarket visit. We can arrange that when you have paid for your booking as I am unable to contact you directly until then. Please write to me before so I can check that this can be done for you on the dates you want.

A very beautiful and peaceful home from home

  • 5 of 5

Having previously rented holiday properties in France, Italy and Spain, we have a good idea of what to expect from a holiday rental and what we like. From the initial booking stage until the day we left the property, Casa Amapola surpassed expectations. The owners, Rob & Juliet, were nothing but helpful, friendly and accommodating. Our flight arrived late at night but, thanks to clear, easy to follow directions, we found our way to the property with no problems and upon arrival we were absolutely delighted with what we found.

The property is located in the most beautiful setting, the views are fabulous. The villa itself is spacious, clean, extremely well equipped, and it immediately felt like a home from home. A very generous welcome pack was provided which saw us through until we could make a trip to the supermarket. It’s hard to pinpoint all the positives as there are so many but, to list a few, the bedrooms were bright and comfortable, the living space was perfect and the provision of DVDs, CDs, books and games was just fantastic, the kitchen was equipped with everything (and I mean everything) you could need, and the terrace was bliss for sitting sipping wine of an evening and watching the sun go down.

The best bit for us though, was definitely the pool. Holidaying with a toddler isn’t always easy but, our son was more than happy to splash about there all day. It was a definite boon having it all to ourselves and, thank you again to Rob and Juliet (who live downstairs), who told us to not worry about noise so we never had to fret about disturbing anyone.

The area itself is well worth exploring. We had a day at the beach at Benajarafe and a great morning of retail therapy at the markets at Torre del Mar, amongst other things, but mostly we were just happy to spend time by the pool at the villa.

We were so sad to leave. We’ve been back for a few weeks now and we are still pining for Casa Amapola and the sunshine. Rob & Juliet, we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to have the best family holiday we’ve ever had. We will most definitely return to your wonderful property.

A great property with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The property in a quite position with stunning views. It was very clean and very well equipped. The pool was cleaned every day and there were plenty of sun loungers. Service provided by the owners was exceptional. They provided a welcome pack (unlike some owners) with essentials as we requested, provided clear and accurate directions on how to find the property, met us on arrival and explained the use of all equipment and details of all local facilities. I would have no hesitation in going back to this splendid property and indeed recommending it to friends. Its location is very quiet with amazing views across the Spanish countryside. In short great value for money.

Dream relaxation Holiday

  • 5 of 5

A very tasteful comfortable villa, exactly as described, well maintained. The villa is really secluded but not far from the main roads. The pool area was excellent and clean. The owners, very warm and friendly, welcomed us to the villa and honestly, we didn't see them again, but we knew that they are there if we needed them.

We would recommend the property to friends and relatives any time, and we are looking forward to return and enjoy the beautiful scenery, the pool and above all the tranquility.

5*, beautiful! welcoming, peaceful and PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

JUST PERFECT!

WOW! I last visited Casa Amapola in Iznate, 8 years ago and it is still as beautiful as ever! The owners, Rob and Ju have made some fantastic changes to the villa and now it is 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, and so much space! It is the best place/base to go sightseeing and also spend quality family time. I recommend it to all my friends and family. Thank you for a ‘just perfect’ holiday. I have already book again for next year.

QUIET, AWAY FROM IT ALL RETREAT

  • 4 of 5

LOVELY LITTLE SPANISH VILLA LOCATED A SHORT DISTANCE TO THE TRADITIONAL SPANISH TOWN OF IZNATE. LOADS OF SPACE INSIDE IF THAT'S WHAT YOU FANCY BUT WITH A SPACIOUS PATIO AND SEPARATE POOL AREA THERE IS REALLY NO NEED TO EVER BE INSIDE. THIS IS A WELL EQUIPPED VILLA PROVIDING FOR YOUR EVERY NEED. THE OWNERS HAVE PUT GREAT EFFORT INTO PROVIDING FOR A FAMILY'S EVERY NEED WITH KITCHEN EQUIPMENT, KIDS EQUIPMENT, GAMES AND STUFF FOR THE BEACH. THERE IS ALSO A PARTICULARLY IMPRESSIVE WOOD BURNER FOR THOSE CHILLY NIGHTS. THE POOL AREA IS SPACIOUS AND WITH AMAZING VIEWS OVER THE MOUNTAIN VALLEY. THE POOL WAS VERY CLEAN AND WELCOMING AND THERE WERE PLENTY OF COMFORTABLE SUN LOUNGERS. A CAR IS ESSENTIAL BUT CLOSE BY ARE THE AMENITIES OF IZNATE INCLUDING A COUPLE OF BARS AND FOOD STORES. A SHORT DRIVE AWAY IS THE RESORT OF TORRE DE MAR WHERE YOU WILL FIND SHOPS, RESTAURANTS AND A BEAUTIFULLY CLEAN BEACH. A GREAT PLACE TO STAY AS A COUPLE OR FAMILY BUT WITH THE TWO PATIO AREAS IT MAKES IT PERFECT FOR MIXED GROUPS OR FAMILIES. WE WILL DEFINITELY RETURN TO THIS PEACEFUL VILLA.

Iznate is a traditional white Spanish village set in the Adalucian countryside. The village is characteristic of the area with narrow and raised streets adorned with flowerpots of geraniums and jasmine. There is a bank, post office, bread shop, 2 small supermarkets, grocers. There are also 5 bars, most serving food.

There are plenty of places to visit, Lake Vinuela, Nerja/Burriana beach is about 30 mins drive, but we have our very own favourite beaches at Benajarafe, Niza and Linda where you can always find a quiet, secluded spot to sunbathe or fish. Malaga is half hour away and is well worth a visit. There are 2 golf courses that are a 15 minute drive away. You may be tempted to go golfing, scuba diving, horse riding, sailing, walking, wine tasting and even skiing between the months of December and May with the ski slopes about 1 and half hour away. The list is endless but you can also just sit back and relax and enjoy a peaceful, secluded holiday with your own pool.

Other Activities: There are details of walks and maps at the villa. Skiiing available 1.5 hours away

Golf: There are two golf courses that are about 15 minutes drive away from Casa Amapola at Baviera Golf and Anoreta Golf Course

www.bavieragolf.com 15 minutes away from Casa Amapola

Additional pricing information

Additional Guest Fee £9.16 per person per night
Damage Deposit £91.58

Basically, the price of the villa is dependent on 4 people so if you want to use the 3rd bedroom for an extra person it would cost an extra 70 euros and if there were 6 people in total, then an extra 140 euros per week. We have priced the villa at a competitive rate so it can be booked cost effectively by 2 to 4 people but also be costed for upto 6 guests.

A deposit of 25% of the total rental cost is required with your booking, with the balance no later than 6 weeks prior to your arrival date. In the event of a late booking, i.e. within 6 weeks of your arrival date, the whole amount due is payable on confirmation of your booking.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
  • 100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
