About Rafa

We know southern Spain exceptionally well, and we are happy to help you plan your visit, giving you ideas and insider tips - for eating out, hiking, adventure activities, best places for photography, where to go horse riding, where to hire bicycles - we can help with all the details.

We really care about our guests staying in our villa. We strive to be highly responsive to enquiries and guest queries during the stay. We are trustworthy and caring hosts.

Why Rafa chose Guaro

This part of Andalucia is truly special. Sierra de las Nieves is one of Spain's newest National Parks, rich in rare flora and fauna - all this is just minutes from the house.

Also, the area is close to Marbella and the coast, so during a holiday here one can enjoy the best of all worlds - nature, tranquality, the coast as well as access to the cultural richness of Ronda, Seville and Granada, which are all easily reached by car.

What makes this villa unique

This Andalusian country cortijo-style home offers spectacular views across rolling countryside to dramatic mountains beyond. Enjoy beautiful sunrises and breath-taking, romantic sunsets.

Watch eagles and kestrels; and swifts and swallows - and if you're lucky you might catch sight of the wild boar that roam the countryside.

Springtime the countryside is carpeted in wild flowers. Summer brings golden browns, and in autumn and winter the land is verdant and green.

There are lots of walks to be enjoyed and locally there are many companies offering 4x4 safaris, adventure activities, horse-riding and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were made to feel very welcome and were pleased to find the villa exactly as it looked in the images. Also excited to find a working kitchen that was a pleasure to use. The additional info provided by the boys was an excellent guide to the local highlights and led to some great adventures from this well located villa.

A gorgeous getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was the epitome of "peace and quiet ". The house was spotlessly clean, thoughtfully stocked and comfortable. While the driveway was initially daunting, it was both accessible and completely secluded. The weather cooperated and we were able to swim and sunbathe in complete privacy. The house was cool and the air-conditioning worked well in the bedroom at night. Rafa was a gracious and accommodating host, and he and Andrew were responsive and a pleasure to deal with. We were able to take easy day trips to Malaga, Granada, Ronda and Marbella. Nearby Coin had more than adequate shopping and restaurants, though we cooked most of our meals in the well appointed kitchen. If you are looking for a getaway with breathtaking views that allows for sightseeing days, this is the most relaxing place there is!!

The most wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had spent the first week of our two week trip in Andalusia exploring the region's beautiful cities before retreating up into the mountains for some much needed relaxation. When we first arrived at Andy and Rafa's countryside villa we were certainly not disappointed! The house itself is beautiful and is fully equipped with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The outdoor space surrounding the house was just fabulous with ample areas to sit and relax over a nice bottle of wine and a bbq (there are 2 bbq's to choose from!). The private pool was perfect in size and was very welcome during the heat of the day! When we initially booked our stay, we were aware that there would be beautiful countryside surrounding the property but nothing prepared us for the views that greeted us when we actually arrived. We were totally lost for words at the sheer beauty of the landscape which stretched for miles in every direction. It was the most romantic please to sit and watch the sun set over the mountains! Our host Rafa was amazing, ensuring that our stay was absolutely perfect! Everything about the place was truly magical and we cannot wait to go back!

The house was beautifully clean and fully equipped with everything we needed for a fantastic stay. It was super to be met by Rafa and shown the house and he did more than is usually expected from an owner to ensure that we had a super stay. The house was perfect for two adults and two university aged children and we all said that we would love to stay again. The views from the terraces are unbeatable and luckily for us the weather contributed to a perfect stay.

Picturesque, peaceful and simply perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous week we spent at this stunning countryside villa. It's picturesque, peaceful and simply perfect location was exactly what we needed for a truly relaxing week.

The Villa is beautifully interior designed and kitted out with everything you could possibly need e.g. aircon, wifi, dishwasher and very importantly nespresso machine!

We loved being met personally by Rafa at the property on arrival, he is such a welcoming host and helped with everything we could need - every detail had been accounted for. He also recommended some lovely places to visit during our stay.

We had a couple of day trips down to Marbella and into Ronda, both highly recommended although we mostly just enjoyed relaxing in the private pool overlooking the undisturbed views in perfect weather!

Thank you again so much Andrew and Rafa we cannot wait to come again this year! :)

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Cortijo de las Nieves is an absolutely stunning villa with beautiful views in every direction. We stayed in late July and although the weather was extremely hot there were plenty of shaded areas to sit and admire the view and a lovely courtyard to relax with a glass of wine and a book! The villa has aircon but we rarely needed it. The wifi was fast and reliable and very much appreciated by our daughters.

Raffa was always on hand to offer help and advice and there is plenty of helpful information at the villa regarding days out (if you can drag yourself away) and places to eat. We visited Ronda which was well worth the 1 hour drive and the villa is conveniently located for visiting Marbella.

A car is esential but there are places to eat within a short drive away.

I would highly recommend this villa
