A fabulous place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. It has everything you could want to make your stay a very special one. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the owners were very helpful and attentive when needed, but equally leave you in peace to enjoy their fabulous house. The views are stunning, the house is very comfortable with air conditioning. The pool is set below the house and is well maintained. It has loungers, a table and chairs around it, as well as a parasol. We had a wonderful week and will look to return again soon!

Beautiful retreat, high up the hills looking down on the Mediterranean Sea and torrox, super view

  • 5 of 5

Lovely traditional house, upgraded with sympathy for original features.

All split level and very cosy.

A useful utility room in a separate building gives an extra freezer and washing machine with ironing facilities.

Beautifully laid out exteria with 2 driveways for car access.

Well planted raised beds featuring olive, Bougainvilla, bamboo and grapevine etc

The pool area is well planned and gets huge amounts of sunshine. The shower in this area is particularly useful and the views are stunning.

A large outside dining table is perfect for eating out and entertaining, whilst being covered under a bamboo veranda.

This property is a fair way into the national park and it takes a little effort to get there on largely single track roads but the elevation and quietness is a reward in itself. There are wild boar occasionally crossing the roads and eagles frequent the skies.

The owners are delightful and will remain completely descrete, unless you need anything.

Great base for visiting Frigiliana, Nerja etc.

Lidl is 20 mins away for supplies and is well stocked.

Great place to walk the mountains also.

Schönes, sehr ruhig gelegenes Ferienhaus mit toller Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Sehr gut ausgestattetes, geräumiges Ferienhaus mit großer, sehr sehr schöner zweigeschossiger Terrasse, gepflegtem Swimmingpool und wunderbarer Alleinlage. Etwas längere (ca. 7 Min.) Anfahrt über schmaler, teils steiler, geteerter Strasse. Schnelle, freundliche Kommunikation mit den Eigentümern. Komplikationslose Hausübergabe am An- und Abreisetag. Sehr zu empfehlen für Menschen, die etwas vom Touristenrummel in Andalusien Urlaub machen und nicht schnell oder hauptsächlich am Strand sein möchten. Nahe gelegenes Frigiliana schön zum Schlendern und Essen gehen.
