Casa Rosa is a modern single storey cottage having been totally rebuilt on the site of an old farm in 2003. It has a beautiful position set among olive and almond groves with sweeping views over arable farmland to the mountains of Ronda and Malaga to the west. It is approximately one hour's drive north from Malaga airport and is ideally situated as a base for exploring Southern Andalucia. Granada is approximately one and a half hour's drive and Ronda much the same. It is close to the Torcal National Nature Park which is home to golden eagles and they can often be seen flying over the cottage. Casa Rosa is the perfect holiday cottage for walkers, painters, bird watchers, golfers (the nearest golf course is at Antequera 30 minutes away) or for those who just want to get away from it all. It is fully equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, barbecue, Sky TV and a DVD player. There is a swimming pool which can be heated for an extra charge. This is a non smoking property.

About Harriet Jones
We are a retired couple living in the south of England, and we bought Casa Rosa as a ruin and rebuilt it as a fully modernised cottage. The peace and quiet and fabulous views were what appealed to us. We have made a lovely garden and it is our second home. We spend about two to three months a year there. Above is a picture of the cottage in April with our lovely roses in full bloom.
Harriet Jones purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Harriet Jones chose Villanueva de la Concepción
When we were thinking of buying a property we looked all round Andalucia from the Ronda area to further east but nothing appealed as much as the area near Villanueva and the Torcal National Park, because of the lack of tourism and unspoilt countyside. We look out over an agricultural valley and can see the mountains of Malaga and Ronda in the distance. The sunsets are spectacular. We feel it is a magical place!
What makes this Cottage unique
The peace and quiet, the slowness of the pace of life, the fabulous views, the fact that we can stand on our terrace at night and not see any other lights in the valley.

Cash Rosa is amazing. Private, tranquil, comfortable...a real home from home.
Well equipped...everything is to hand.
We loved it so much..I am about to book next year!
Thank you Harriet and Tony for sharing your piece of heaven!
Dear Suzanne and Tim - thankyou so much for your fantastic review - so glad you loved Casa Rosa and are coming back next year. We are always delighted when people love it as much as we do and want to return!
Peace in the country
Very quite and peaceful buy Spanish standards.
Amazing views a very beautiful part of Spain we hadn’t experienced before. Very comfortable ,clean , and well equipped cottage. The owners Harriet. has already acknowledged it would be good to have a couple of chairs outside to watch the fantastic sunsets and star laden skies, whilst enjoying a glass of wine.
A beautiful oasis of calm and serenity
We had a fantastic repeat stay at Casa Rosa and plan to visit again next year.
Thankyou so much for your review Sarah and we are so pleased that you are planning to stay
At Casa Rosa again.
Peaceful and had wonderful views
The villa was well equipped and had fabulous views. The weather was very hot and the pool was perfect for cooling down in.
I would highly recommend staying her but do get a suitable car for the track down to the villa. We had a fiat 500 that just about made it up and down :)
A fabulous villa and location and we would definitely stay again.
Thankyou so much Jasmin for your review. We are delighted that you had a lovely holiday at Casa Rosa and hope you will come again.
Great house on a great location when you love tranquillity
Very well equiped house nurtured with love on a beautiful location. It is hard to find things that could be better but I do have two suggestions. More towels (now only 1 hand and 1 pool towel for a week). And larger beds. I am used to 2,20 length beds. This is in most houses and hotels not the case but I would very much appreciate it. I do have to say that Kelly (from a company that we could call for help) was very helpful and brought extra towels.
Positives are all over the place. It is clean, well equiped kitchen, washing maching, bathroom for each room, great pool with lights and long enough to swim a bit, great view, very private.
Will return again I think!
And thanks Harriet for providing all the info and pleasant booking experience.
Thankyou Sem for your kind words. We have hopefully dealt with the towel situation which shouldn't have happened and not quite sure why it did but glad that Kelly rectified that.
Can't make any promises about getting new beds as we haven't had any other guests complain about this - but we will certainly bear it in mind when we have to replace them. Glad that you might come again!
Casa Rosa is the perfect place for a quiet, restful holiday. Some days, we might hear 1 car, other days nothing apart from the bells of the odd Goat heard being walked across the hills.
The property is beautifully maintained with wonderful gardens watered by an automatic watering system.
The pool was glorious, perfect for a cooling dip when the weather is hot!
We saw golden eagles flying over the property and vultures in the nearby national park.
If you want to see some of the historic cities nearby, Seville is 2 & half hours drive away, Cordoba and Granada 1 & half hours drive away.
Only advice I would give is don't hire a car with a small engine. The hills in the area are very steep with hairpin bends, we ended up having to go up some in 1st gear!
A perfect restful place for a holiday, we will definitely be returning
Thankyou so much for your review Simon. We are delighted that you had such a good holiday at Casa Rosa and look forward to you returning another time!
Other Activities: Bird watching . Close to the El Torcal National Park where golden eagles and griffin vultures are often seen among many other birds . Wonderful walking straight from the cottage. Fabulous views.
