This country villa was built on two levels in 2001 to high standards & is lovingly furnished and well equipped. It is situated in 2 acres of open land, bordered by a small stream and offering fabulous views to the mountains. It is fully fenced and gated.
The drive features an ornate fountain and there is plenty of parking.
On the upper level there is a double en-suite bedroom & a double bedroom & twin bedroom sharing a bathroom plus a separate WC.
The spacious and open sitting room boasts a log fire, a must for the cooler winter months, a 32' TV with Acox Freeview Sky package and WiFi.
The large kitchen is fully fitted with a dishwasher and microwave.
On the lower level, the casita with it´s independent entrance, has recently benefited from a make-over (Feb 2015) and offers twin bedroom accommodation & wet room with flat roll-in shower. It has a separate toilet and a small kitchenette with washer / dryer / fridge / 4 ring hob / hairdryer / toaster / kettle. This is an additional cost of £350.00 to the main villa if requiring more than 6 people.
The main house and the casita can be booked together or they can be booked independently of each other however only one group of guests will stay at the property at any one time. The main house and casita are priced independently and this is reflected in the pricing section.
The property has hot and cold Air Conditioning.
In front of the house is a large swimming pool (10x5m) with roman steps set in the lovely gardens. There is a beautiful, hand-built BBQ with its own large seating area. Spacious terraces & patios including covered bbq, bar and dining area which allow plenty of space for everyone. Perfect for al fresco dining and watching the night skies.
A gardener visits once a week to maintain the gardens.
As the villa has its own private pool, gardens and barbecue area, it is ideally suited for a family with children or mixed age groups, or couples wanting to get away from it all in the seclusion of a private villa. It is also within walking distance of bar/restaurants, but a car is essential to access the main town. Ideally located for nearby local golf courses; Alhaurin Golf and Lauro Golf and centrally situated for touring and exploring all that Spain has to offer.
Supermarkets and shops are within a short drive as are many bars and restaurants. If you love to BBQ you´ll love the butchers situated on the nearby Poligono La Rosa.
Casa Clara offers absolute privacy, peace and tranquillity in a stunning setting with views to the surrounding countryside and distant mountains, whilst being literally a few minutes drive to the nearest town offering shopping and nightlife.
Casa Clara is a countryside holiday retreat, but you can still enjoy the fabulous beaches of the Costa del Sol within a 20 minute drive and Marbella voted the 7th best holiday destination in Spain by TripAdvisor clients in 2014.
Fantastic homely chill-out villa with stunning views and privacy, close to all the amenities of Alhaurin (you do need a car), with all the facilities of home! Highly recommended.
The villa itself is lovely. Perfect for that get away from it all holiday. However, on our return to the UK despite no problems, we had a very difficult time getting the security deposit paid back. The owner repeatedly ignored emails requesting payment. When payment was made it was for the wrong amount and although eventually after many days of waiting, and sending emails (that were not responded to). The money was repaid. No explanation or apology. We will not be returning to this Villa. Very poor communication/customer service
We have just returned from our 4th visit to Casa Clara this time with 4 generations of our family and once again had a great time. The fact that it was our 4th visit and suited all 4 generations is testament to the villa. The villa is well equipped inside and has great outside space both in the sun and the shade if needed and a larger than average villa pool. The communication from the the owner Claire is excellent and the local support if needed is very friendly and prompt. A car is required as the local shops and restaurants are not within easy walking distance.
Just been for 2 weeks, in a gorgeous location set a 5 min drive away from the town, through beautiful olive groves. Villa was perfect for 8 of us, loved the bar and Bbq area. Stunning views of the mountains exactly as described, and town had great restaurants and bars. Also less than half hour drive to Marbella. We honestly couldn't have asked for anything else, definitely hope to go back!
