Overview

About the property

4 bedroom villa with wifi and swimming pool, in natural parc.

The villa is situated on a hill in the middle of 2 hectarias of olives, almond and fig trees and has his own fresh spring water. It has a lot of splendid and surprising corners like the tropical swimming pool, caves and monumental oaks hidden in the property. It's a restful place with amazing view to the mountains and the village. There is even view on the sea.

The house is in typical Mediterranean style and has a lot of harmonic movement, natural atmosphere and space. It was finished by its owner who is an artist. There are 4 bedrooms and a splendid bathroom. One of the bedrooms is a lightfull mezanina. There is an outdoor bathroom near the swimmingpool.

Although the villa is situated in the middle of peaceful nature, it's very close (a drive of 5 min) to Alozaina, a small sympathetic village.

Every afternoon there is a refreshing breeze from the sea, which is very welcome in summertime

Because of the first year of renting the price is exceptional low for what it all includes: a huge property plenty of surprises and beautiful corners in and around this atmospherfull house.

About Gennaro Pepe

Hi there. I am Gennaro, born in Italy of a spanish mother. When I was in search of a house in Spain, villa Maravilla superated all my expectations. I found a spacefull house that I could finish my own way, in a beautiful peace of nature, not to far from a sympatic village and last but not least, with own spring water. As I am a glassmaster and during summertime I work outside, I decided to rent out the house. Although this was a difficult decision as the house is very precious to me and my familiy. But through the years we are realy satisfied that with our place we can offer beautiful holidays to nice families. So it was a good decision, after all.

Gennaro Pepe purchased this villa in 2012

Why Gennaro Pepe chose Guadalhorce (Costa del Sol)

This house is built to feel home. Me and my family just love to live there. We created a special atmosfere of harmony in- and outside the house. And this is what everyone who comes to visit us, notices immediately.

The nature around the house helps to reconnect: olive trees, orange trees, a beautiful oak tree behind the house, rozemarin, and wherever you look an amazing view on the mountains around, untill the sea of Malaga

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful villa 'Maravilla', which is very well beated. We were at half an hour- two hours driving distance from all the places we wanted to visit such as Ronda and the white villages, Granada, Mijas, Costa del Sol. Your countryside is gorgeous and the view from everywhere fabulous. A great place for a very honnest price!

Many thanks!

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the villa we get so surprised! For a place as this one uses to pay much more. But villa maravilla is a generous place in all senses: the view is just amazing, the nature around very peaceful, and the house of an exceptional beauty, rather simple but very tastefull and cosy! And the swimmingpool with its area around was the best place to relax. But than I forget the main terrace which was a perfect time to chill out and enjoy our mails in family.

From the first moment we feelt at home. The owners are very friendly and helpfull. And the area around is also very interesting: a piece of authentic Spain full of Andalusian temprament. But we get also surprised by the pure nature here.

Thanks a lot for so much generosity! Defenitivly we will go back!

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Don't come here if you are after night life and sophisticated restaurants. Do come here if you want to enjoy the most beautiful countryside and relaxation. The villa is comfortable and set on a mountainside - don't be alarmed by the steep approach road or the steeper driveway! You will need a car. Views across the valley and the village are spectacular. It would be difficult to manage toddlers here and similarly it would not suit someone with poor mobility. Enjoy the fresh figs from the fig tree and grapes from the vine. The gas barbecue provides all that you need for cooking, but there is also an oven and 4ring gas stove. The facilities were just fine though i couldn't get the music centre to play my iPod satisfactorily. We enjoyed a restaurant in the village square - huge portions of plain but delicious food. Mostly we spent our time at the villa. Wish we could go again next year! Gennaro was v helpful. Thanks! Sorry we never met. One of our chargers imploded and blew a fuse and help was there within a few minutes. Highly recommended.

Charming villa

  • 5 of 5

We had one of our greatest holidays at this charming villa. It is extremely private and charming, a wonderfull place for relaxing with the family. If you want a place that is off the beaten path yet has great comfort for the whole family you should go here. We had lots of relaxation and play by the pool area (which is excellent) and great trips to nearby towns, beaches and sights. Shopping facilities are close in the nearby village, but the villa is undisturbed and private.

A gem

  • 5 of 5

Casa Maravilla is a beautiful retreat for those who seek some peace. You can see the love and care with which the house has been made and decorated. The proprietor is very courteous and responds to any inquiries very quickly. We enjoyed the time there, we enjoyed the casa and it's surroundings, we enjoyed the village and it's people and we enjoyed the amazing nature all very much. A gem.

Owner's Response: We feel happy and proud to hear that people enjoy this place the same way we do, when we live here in wintertime. This house and the nature arround is a very special place to us, and we are really happy to share it with other people who know to enjoy this peacefull place. And this year we keep working arround the house, planting trees and flowers, chill out corners, to create a real paradise. un saludo, Gennaro

The house is located in the middle of the natural Park of the 'Sierra de la Nieves'. Right in the back of the house there are mountains of 1500m and further up mountains to 2000m with view to Africa. The Park is one of the most beautiful corners of Spain with a unique fauna y flora (prehistoric forests of 'pinsapo', hugh waterfalls eagles, foxes,...). The sympathetic village of Alozaina is on a walk of 15 min. where you can enjoy delicious tapas in the typical bars. In July and September there are the great traditional fiestas of the village!

At 45min. there is the historical centre of the city Malaga with the famous Picasso museum. On another 45min there are the beaches and shops of Marbella. Further around there are also the monumental cities like Granada, Sevilla and Cordoba.

The whole area is also very known for its Golf Parks and other extended natural parks with lakes and possibilities for great walks and exciting sport activities.
