Spectacular view, fully private and cosy house.

  • 5 of 5

It's really nice place with a great view. You have privacy and plenty of cosy facilities such as jacuzzi, outdoor shower and a bed. At it's best this house is for spending lazy days at the house since the last few kilometers of the roads are quite challenging and logistics wise you would want to mininize the need for driving those. Overall a very good place to stay and recommended for those seeking tranquility, privacy and panoramic views.

A fantastic house, full of character, in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed by Francisco and Maria who gave us a guided tour of the property. Their attention to detail in the house and grounds made our stay very enjoyable. We had total peace and quiet admiring the view or enjoying a glass of wine by the fire in the evening. Watching the stars from the hot tub was also very memorable. The house had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. We had two great day trips to El Chorro and El Torcal which were easily reached within an hour. The drive to them took us along some beautiful countryside. We would love to return here one day and hope that it remains as unspoiled and perfect.

Minnie Luxury Resort

  • 5 of 5

Our one week stay at Finca Sabila was like staying at a fancy resort but with total privacy. There are many outside places to sit, lounge or eat, all with incredible views. And the Jacuzzi was the best. The kitchen was well equipped, the wifi worked ok and the bed was comfortable. There is a dirt road you have to drive on to get to FS but was never a problem. The area in general is spectacular with great cycling (though very hilly). This was one of the best houses we have stayed at. Also, Francisco the owner and Manolo the grounds keeper were very informative and fun to chat with. Scott

Wunderschön

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung gibt einen wunderschönen Blick auf die umliegende Land- und Kulturlandschaft frei. Für Menschen, die Ruhe lieben und suchen eine phantastische Möglichkeit, um abzuschalten, um Hektik und Stress los zu lassen und tiefe Entspannung zu erfahren.

Die Ferienwohnung, ihre Einrichtung und die Gestaltung rund um das Haus erlauben sofortiges Wohlfühlen.

It is a beautiful rustic house to enjoy a quiet retreat in the middle of nature, with the comforts of your home.

Impressive views from all terraces and gardens full of flowers that surround it, with an exterior jacuzzi of adjustable temperature, Balinese bed, hammocks, tables with their chairs and stone benches.

Being an isolated house and being on top of a mountain of 620 height, it is a quiet place, in a rural environment.

It is south facing and enjoys a microclimate that allows it to maintain mild temperatures, being able to enjoy the sunny mornings with the song of the birds that populate the surroundings.

Given its height and the absence of any kind of pollution, it is a perfect location for night-time observation of the sky at first sight or with binoculars during clear nights.

Strategic place to visit two unique natural sites such as El Torcal, the most visited place in the network of natural spaces of Andalusia, 10 km from the house, as El Caminito del Rey.

The latter quoted by Lonely Planet as one of the most interesting places to visit in the world. This last zone is one of the best places in Spain for climbing, with vertical walls of up to 200m.

Given its central position in Andalusia and a few kilometers from a motorway, you can visit cities such as Malaga, Granada Ronda, Cordoba and Seville in one to two hour trips.

It is situated on a hill overlooking the valleys and mountains in many kilometers around.

Ideal for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quietness of the countryside.

The monumental and historic city of Antequera, 19 km away, with its museum, churches and Dolmens, recently declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Antequera Golf.

7 km away is Lobopark, an original space, where you can observe directly and learn about the world of wolves.

Do not miss the charm of a stroll through the village streets of Abdalajis Valley, 2km from the house. Enjoy the tapas in its bars and do not forget to visit the museum, where you can see valuable archaeological objects.

It is also one of the best places in Malaga for hiking, due to the wide network of paths that extend through valleys and mountains between exceptional landscapes.

In Valle de Abdalajis you can find supermarkets that close on Sundays, public holidays and at noon, good tapas bars, restaurants, pharmacy, Catholic church, ATMs, taxis, petrol station and health center, with doctor on call and ambulance covering 24 hours a day all year round.
