About the property

Sleeps12, heated pool,hot tub, games room,boules,softball tennis,

The 6 bedroom farmhouse, although built just over 15 years ago with all modern features , has been designed in the traditional Andalucian way. It sits on 10 acres of private land nestled in the lovely valley that is Lake Vinuela with stunning big sky views of mountains, olive groves and with the lake on its doorstep. A typical Spanish village with bars and restaurants is only 10mins away.

The property’s main attractions apart from the beautiful well equipped large farmhouse the landscaped gardens with numerous eating and relaxing places, the stunning 360 degree views, and the tranquil setting are the facilities at the property for non stop entertainment for all the family whatever their age. The farmhouse has its own lagoon styled pool (heated if required) which is set on the south side in a generous terrace containing a poolside bar, hot tub and a large sun lounge area . This sits beside a sanded boules court overlooked by your very own outdoor Chiringuito (covered eating place) with BBQ & Paellera. On a lower level is a trampoline. On the west side is a softball tennis court . On the north side is an equipped fitness area.

Situated in the basement of the property is a large games room with a full size pool table, table tennis & darts. It also boasts its own bar & freeviewTV. There is also large screen Wii. games.

Situated next to the tennis court is the art and craft barn. A place to get creative, whatever the age and maybe a break from the all day sun.

There is also a Canadian style canoe available with life jackets.

We also have 3 sets of golf clubs & 3 mountain bikes.

There are also many tranquil areas within the house and grounds to get away from it all with a good book and a glass of wine such as the Old Threshing Square.

A perfect holiday in an amazing location ❤

  • 5 of 5

A few words won't do justice to the best holiday we have ever had! The location is stunning, the villa has everything you could want but feels like home and Bill and Anne are quite simply wonderful. If you have a chance to visit please do, you won't be disappointed but just don't go when we want to as we're definitely returning! 😊Thank you Anne and Bill x x

We have just had the most amazing 2 week holiday in this little piece of paradise.

Wow – was our first impression as we were greeted by Bill and Anne at their amazing villa. We were 2 families who have holidayed together for many years and this was by far the best villa we have ever stayed in. The pool was lovely, with very comfortable sun loungers and we enjoyed all the different eating and seating areas at different times of day. We also sat round the pool admiring the wonderful gardens. The youngsters in our group (age range 18 – 23) made good use of the games room and tennis court.

The facilities and home comforts were much appreciated and the villa was cleaned to an excellent standard. The kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials to cater for a large party. Outside the two cooking areas were used for many barbeques and paellas.

Bill and Anne could not have been more help to us, with our many questions about the local area and where to go. It truly was a special time in this spacious and delightful villa and maybe one day we will be lucky enough to return.

Welcome return to this beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit having stayed here in 2010 and we managed to reunite the entire family again plus three more grandchildren! The villa and surrounding area are as spectacular as ever and we have some more treasured memories to take home with us.

It was truly a pleasure to stay in a holiday villa so well stocked with home essentials and Anne and Bill's thoughtfulness was much appreciated.

Maria looked after us very well and was always available, if not in person then on the phone, to give us advice on where to eat, shop etc. Nothing was too much trouble for her.

We had a lovely time and hope to repeat the experience at some time in the future. Only sorry we didn't get to see Anne and Bill.

Again wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to the villa, was as great as the first.

The villa is wonderful, even more seating areas have been added than last year. Maria was there to welcome us and be at our beacon call throughout the stay, with the few little niggles that arose during the stay.

The house is designed to make you instantly feel at home, with comfortable interiors and a very relaxing exterior. Paella ring and various bbqs were used every evening!

The 'lakeside' in the title I fear is now slightly misleading and the lake is shrinking and the lake is now a 20 minute cross country mountain bike ride away.

Another great holiday, thank you Bill, Anne and Maria

Owner's Response: So glad you all had a lovely time & that Maria looked after you. After a couple of years of no winter rain I'm afraid the lake has receded, we can only hope that Mother nature corrects this with some nice well needed rain this year. Hope you all manage to come back again & the Lake is back where it should be.

What can we say - we are 3 families who have been away for the past 6 years together, but this year the property has exceeded all expectations, the photo's do not do this property justice - you do not need to leave this place, it has everything. Mark & Maria have been so helpful and even insisted on making me Paella for my Birthday, nothing was too much trouble for them. Again thank you Bill & Anne your home is amazing, we do not normally return to a property - but we will be back next year!!!!

The property nestles in a valley that is Lake Vinuela. Surrounded by olive groves & a lake with the backdrop of the Tejeda mountain range, of which Mount Maroma (2100m high) stands proud. The house is reached from the main road by a slow winding 3 kilometre track through fields and olive groves with fabulous views all the way. Once reaching the property you enter by electronic gates then park, by the house, in a 4 car covered car port (out of the sun) and you are in over 10 acres of property land of which 2 acres are fenced off garden area around the farmhouse.

Our typical Spanish local village of Periana is a short drive away (10 mins.) on a country lane through orange groves. The village has shops, market, banks with ATMs, bars & restaurants & has many fiestas in the summer.

There is also a very impressive restaurant/bar just across the valley (approx 1km away). There are also 2 lovely bar/restaurants that sit directly on the edge of the lake.

Just 20 mins away at nearby Velez Malaga there is a shopping mall which includes a large supermarket that can cater for all of the needs of holiday makers whatever the group size.

The property sits near the lakeside so walking/biking couldn't be easier as you can just set off from your own front door into the countryside. We have many details of circular walks that are kept at the property .

There are many wild flowers & birds to spot including birds of prey, reference books provided.

The valley is surrounded by wonderful typically Spanish villages, with excellent bars & restaurants.

In Torre del Mar (25mins) there is a large sandy beach & a water park. Once reaching Torre del Mar there are numerous beaches to explore both east and west.

There are many notable places to visit, by car.

Malaga city (the old picturesque part houses the Picasso museum) which is 45mins away.

Granada with the fabulous Alhambra Moorish Palace is 1hr 30mins.

Cordoba a lovely small walled city with it's unique multiple arched Mosque with a Cathedral set inside is just 2hrs. Seville ,the capital of Andalusia, is just 2hr. 30mins away. All possible to visit in a day..... More locally you will find some Roman baths just outside Periana & in Nerja the historic caves are worth a visit.
