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 softball 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.

We are 2 hours & 30 min drive from Seville.

Amazing holiday in wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to be greeted by Bill and Anne with very welcome cold beers Everything was provided to make us feel welcome We were a large family group and found the different sitting/dining areas gave enough space for all of us.

The setting of the farmhouse is quite breathtaking so whilst younger ones set off to the coast we were happy to stay put!

We all agreed it was the most fantastic summer holiday and the hosts are fantastic too.

Stunning views , stars at night and first class service from Bill & Anne.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the house (after Bill met us at the local restaraunt) via the winding road at around 11pm so we were unaware of just how amazing the views and scenery were until the next morning. The house is beautiful and has everything a party of 12 could wish for. Both the children and adults loved the swimming pool and the outside bar was in constant use. When night time arrives the stars in the sky are something else and left us all mesmerised whilst on the pool bar terrace with a drink or six ! If your looking for a great family holiday with the feeling that you are away from it all then this will tick all the boxes. With the nearest beach roughy 30 minutes away and Nerja only 45 minutes drive It doesn't take long before your enjoying paella or prawn pil pil with the sun , sand and sea. Bill and Anne were excelllent from start to finish and were extremely helpful recomending restaraunts and directing us to various destinations. Thank you Bill and Anne for making our stay so memorable , enjoyable and stress free . Matt

Bill and Anne's home was everything and more that we could hope for on a vacation. Bill and Anne are super people- warm and welcoming as we met them both on the first day. They were in the neighborhood during our stay and it was a great help and reassurance to us to have them nearby. Now about the house. it is situated on a hillside in the most amazing valley with hills and rolling fields and spectacular views all around. The night sky is amazing. There are several spots where you can wake up and enjoy coffee and breakfast enjoying all the vistas on a variety of patios. After breakfast we were ready for a swim. The pool is just down a few steps from the house. While we were swimming our boys were playing bocce on the sand court right next to the pool. They also made good use of the soft tennis court. At night it was fun to congregate around the outdoor bar and alternate going into the pool and then the hot tub. The location of the house is great for visiting cities like Seville, Granada and Cordoba as we did. It was also close to the airport and train station in Malaga. All super convenient. There is a wonderful large super market on the way. The house is full of exactly what we needed from the kitchen to the amount of patio furniture, great bathrooms - lots of them, towels, washer dryer, clothes line, outdoor grills, activities and games. There is nothing that Bill and Anne haven't thought of at the house. One note is that we did not get to the lake as it is a bit further away due to low water levels at the moment.

All in all it was an amazing vacation made complete by a perfect house in a perfect location owned by wonderful people! We cant wait to go back:) Thank you Bill and Anne

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.

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.
