The season runs through until early April and ski schools in Sierra Nevada speak English and are very friendly. The owners can recommend suitable establishments.
Outdoor activities: The local countryside affords the traveler great opportunities to discover Spain's wildlife, bird life and fauna. The landscape is ideal for walking, cycling, fishing and horse riding.

The owners will happily advise.
We are a Family of four based near London. We love Spain.....and return as much as we can. Ian was brought up on The Balearic Islands and so has a connection with all things Hispanic speaking the language fluently. Our boys are 12 and 16 and have grown up experiencing holidays in Spain and enjoying the villa as their playground with its pool, pool table, and space to run around safely and securely.
Alyson Bayley purchased this villa in 1998
After traveling extensively both for pleasure and for business we have come up with our dream holiday location with home from home comforts. When traveling with friends, family and extended family we feel its important that everyone is catered for and has the space to relax and enjoy without feeling cramped, and always having to compromise on space, rooms, beds and facilities.
'Home from home' unlike so many rental properties Los Pelaez is equipped to high standard with everything you would find at home. The kitchen boosts a dishwasher , microwave and Siemens double oven. The picturesque location with mountain views are breathtaking and at night you can experience a wonderful clear nights sky to star gaze. A rural property, but yet easily accessible to all that Andalusia has to offer historical cities, food, wines, beaches etc.
A wonderful holiday in a wonderful villa-paradise! Arrival date 27/6/2015.
We were a party of 10 who enjoyed the most amazing 11 nights in this beautiful villa. The villa was a short drive from Malaga and we arrived to the most spectacular views.
The property was spotless and well equipped for a party as large as ours, and there was ample room for us all.
The pool was fantastic and the children and adults enjoyed this immensely in the warm Malaga sun.
Rob, the manager, answered our queries very promptly and he and his wife were welcoming and friendly.
We would thoroughly recommend this beautiful property and I'm sure we will be back again in the future.
We were a party of 7 adults. The generous size of the living areas and stairs makes the villa feel enormous – you wouldn’t know anyone else was in the house when you’re tucked away in your room. All the different outdoor spaces were excellent for peace and quiet. Directions to the villa from Malaga airport were accurate & easy to follow.
The best restaurant we found was Los Cabales in Villanueva del Trabuco. In Antequera, we had an excellent meal at Arte de Cozina. The local village is a fair step, and you might not want to walk back after a meal. Take a torch if you plan to.
The pool was bracing but a lovely extra and much used by all of us. The kitchen is well equipped, with basics provided.
Brilliant location for visiting Granada, Cordoba, Seville, the Torcal at Antequera, the Caminito del Rey, Ronda, Sierra Nevada and Malaga.
This villa is large and beautiful. 5 bedrooms, pool, table tennis, pool table, wifi, garage. Really good.
There is a downstairs bedroom in case needed and air con throughout.
The local town is OK but worth driving 20 minutes further afield. Some really great sites and sights.
Only downside is a couple of windy days with wind tearing up the valley but nothing that detracted from the place at all.
Would definitely recommend.
We had a magical week at Cortijo Los Pelaez with our Family. We were greeted by the housekeeper and her husband who effectively provided us all with a conducted tour. The house is very well equipped and the furnishings are wonderful. We were quickly able to relax around the beautiful swimming pool and take in the most spectacular views . Over the coming days we became very proficient at using the table tennis and pool table facilities. As a tennis fan we were able to watch the tennis grand slam at Roland Garros. Do make use of the excellent outside BBQ facilities.
We had four grandchildren with us aged from 7 years old down to 3 months. It was heaven for them and there was absolutely no need to go in search of beaches and sandcastles as everything was here at the Villa. The nearby Village is pretty and well worth a visit. A small supermarket sells everything that is required but larger supermarkets within 30 mins drive provide a wider range for the "big shop". This Villa "touched the spot" with all 12 of us and with wall to wall sunshine we had an absolutely wonderful week. Thank you Alyson and Ian.
We stayed for a week and had a great time. We were 4 adults and two children. The house was very nice and we specialy enjoyed the pool and the pool table. Big spaces both indoors and outdoors. We stayed the first week of May. Our only bump in the road was that the weather was a bit up and down. You need a car to stay here. I would go back but maybe a week or two later or so. So you could relax more at the pool. Everything from booking to stay was very easy.
The villa more than lived up to the description on the website and the facilities were excellent. We all enjoyed the outside eating area and the pool and the kids used the pool table and table tennis extensively.
The villa spotless and when the wifi went down it was reset very quickly (and was fast compared to wifi we have experienced elsewhere)
We would certainly recommend it to others and if we come back to Malaga would have no hesitation in booking it again.
We were somewhat leery about staying in this town because we thought it would be too far from everything. We were pleasantly surprised. This beautiful, clean house is situated on a hill with gorgeous views of the mountains. The kitchen is very large and well stocked. The pool was perfect and very clean. We did not want for anything. The location is perfect. Not too far from the beaches (1/2 an hour by car), about an hour from Granada and Ronda and 1/2 hour from Malaga. There is a billiard table and a ping pong table and an outdoor seating area where we ate all our meals, and we cooked almost every night. There is place to barbeque as well. The house was very comfortable for our 10 person retreat. We tried making mojitos one night but the local grocery store had no mint. Much to our surprise our kids found fresh mint in the garden while looking for a lost ball. Mojito night was salvaged! For a larger grocery shopping store you must drive about 15 minutes, but the store is huge. Air conditioners worked great as well as the washer and dryer. The local town was quaint. We enjoyed doing our local shopping there. Not a bad wine in the store. We went to one bar for tapas and enjoyed ourselves. The home is very very quiet and off the beaten path so there is absolutely no noise whatsoever at night. Overall, we had a very relaxing time. We would go back and highly recommend this home.
