Beautiful views of the sea and the mountains in an unspoilt area of Andalusia
Erected facing the sea and overhanging the pretty white village of Las Negras, the villa enjoys a spectacular view.
Built in the mountain, with numerous terraces in shaded nooks, the villa remains cool during the summer.
You will enjoy cooling off in the infinity-edge pool while contemplating the sea. You will be able to admire the landscape in the shade of the olive, orange and palm trees in a well-kept garden.
Fully equipped with all modern conveniences, the villa will allow you to have a relaxing stay nearby a village that remains lively all year round.
Las Negras is a charming fishing village that’s located in the Natural Maritime Park of Cabo de Geta, one of the last parts of the Mediterranean coast that remains untouched.
Located in the region that enjoys the most hours of sunshine in Europe, life is good here all year round.
The village faces a remarkable hill, the Cerro Negro, which has inspired many writers and artists due to its spectacular geology.
Behind this hill, only reachable by boat or on foot, lies the Cala San Pedro cove, famous for its beauty. The discovery of this site is the opportunity for a nice hike.
The pretty clear water coves and the cliffs at Las Negras attract diving and sea aficionados.
This is the ideal village where you can rest, relax and enjoy very pleasurable festive nights in the village’s many bars, restaurants and discotheque.
Very near to Africa and located in the Almeria province, Andalusia will reveal all its charms to you.
Its sub-desert Mediterranean climate has shaped the arid landscape where haciendas, cacti and palm trees are scattered here and there. The contrast is striking with the softness of the blue sea, the fine sandy beaches and the spectacularly eroded coves.
Classed as a biosphere reserve by the Unesco, the Cabo de Gata natural reserve presents a unique and fragile volcanic coastline for exceptional hikes from villages to small ports.
San José, La Isleta del Moro, Las Negras, Rodalquilar, Aguamarga are some of the many small fishing villages where many artists, poets and nature lovers have come to settle in.
A few kilometres away from the Casa del Olivo, you will discover El Cortijo de El Fraile that inspired Federico García Lorca’s Blood Wedding and less than two hours car drive away, you may equally visit several wonders of Andalusia in the Granada province: the Calahorra château, Guadix and its troglodyte houses, Las Alpujarras with its beautiful white villages, the heights of the Sierra Nevada and also the town of Granada with its Albaicin Arab quarters and the extraordinary palace and gardens of the Alhambra.

Angel Ranz purchased this Villa in 1993

What makes this Villa unique
Its pool in front of the sea and unobstructed views To benefit from the tranquillity and be very close to a village that is bustling all year long. It is one of the few areas of the Andalusian coast that is not affected by the property speculation.

Beautiful villa, stunning location and great hosts
Casa el Olivo is one of the best villas we have stayed in. Every bit as beautiful as the pictures, with very tasteful decor, there is so much space to enjoy both inside and out, on the various terraces and in the wonderfully tended gardens. The infinity swimming pool is simply gorgeous, enjoying views over the village of Las Negras and its pretty bay. The owner, Angel, lives in an adjacent property and is there to help if needed but in no way intrudes on your privacy. In Las Negras itself there is a good sized supermarket with a decent range of produce and there is no shortage of nice bars and restaurants with good food. Don't miss the fresh, locally caught fish! A great find was "Haiku", a little delicatessen just on the outskirts of the village which also does takeaway food either available straight away or to order. Their paella (just 2 hours notice for preparation needed) was exceptional. If you are fit it would be perfectly possible to walk into the village but be aware that the walk back up to the villa is steep and not for the fainthearted, especially in the heat. But that is the price for a stunning view, one of the best in the area! It is also worth saying that there are quite a lot of steps around the villa which might make it unsuitable for the infirm and young children would certainly need very close supervision indeed. Further afield, the Cabo de Gata national park is gorgeous and the adjacent village of Rodalquilar (just ten minutes drive) with its wide open and unspoilt beach is a real treat. All-in-all Angel and his wife are lovely hosts and I can think of few better villas for a "get away from it all" break in beautiful scenery. Highly recommended.
Very good, even better than expected, much larger than expected
Highly recommended. Great location: a short walk from beach/restaurants/bars of sleepy Las Negras and a short drive to a wide variety of great beaches and small fishing towns. Surrounding landscape is unspoiled, dramatic and beautiful with great hiking and walking. The house itself is excellent - more like 4 inter-linked 1-bed suites sharing a big kitchen and lounge than ‘just’ a 4 bed villa. Huge studio space great for kids. Great pool and terraces (although a little shady towards the end of the day). Stunning gardens and planting throughout. The house is stylish and comfortable without feeling sterile or unwelcoming. Angel the host was very friendly and helpful (he even took the kids to meet his lovely horse Bolero), always available if we needed anything. We’d stay again, with more friends next time to fill the space!
Beautiful house in a stunning setting
House exceeded expectations. View superb. Lovely quiet village and seven days of sunshine. Hard to beat. Angel was very kind and helpful. Hope to come again.
Outstanding property in a quaint setting with fantastic hosts
Even though the weather was off for a few days, the villa was a great place to use as home base for exploring the area. Would love to return in warmer weather so we could take advantage of the gorgeous infinity pool and many places to catch the sun. Angel and Dominique helped with whatever we needed to ensure we had a great stay. Thank You !
Beautiful spacious villa with breathtaking view
We had a wonderful stay at Casa el Olivo. Angel and his wife kindly welcomed us to the villa and gave us a very helpful tour of the property. Between us we managed a good conversation in a mixture of Spanish, French and English! :-D
The view over the small town of Las Negras and the sea is breathtaking.
The villa gets the sun all day, moving from one terrace to another. The villa is well equipped and decorated to a high, modern standard.
We visited with a young baby and found it very easy - while the terrace gets the sun all day, there are shady spots thanks to the levelled terraces. We also appreciated the short drive from the airport (30/40 mins).
The pool is beautiful, not too much chlorine and a lovely view. A true infinity pool!
Las Negras is a small town but has a stony beach and a handful of restaurants. There is a small supermarket which has everything you need for self catering.
If you're looking for a restful week in the sun, soaking up a beautiful view, this is the perfect place.
Muchas gracias. Su comentario me incita a que la casa sea cada vez mas agradable
A perfect villa in a perfect location, very well equipped and home from home. All rooms were a good size and very comfortable. Pool was fantastic as were the patios and garden with a hammock, nice game of boules too! Air conditioning a life saver. Highly recommended-Angel is very helpful and friendly. We will return.
