Lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a relaxing holiday at casa Sydney. Exceptionally clean with a lot of attention to detail, very comfortable. The only thing I would say is that, as a party of 5 adults, we would have liked more parasols around the pool area as there is only one and the temperature can soar in the summer but apart from that we would return, Jacqueline

a place to relax

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this house/location does not show you the marvelous environment. We had great afternoons and evenings poolside, and the sun-rise/-settings are stunning...even during the hottest days the breeze manage to make it pleasant outside. And you can on a clear day see the Atlas mountain in Africa (the house is located at 1500ft)!

Car is a must if you stay here, and we manage to find great prices on flights to Madrid (instead of Malaga) and got a beautiful drive through the Sierra Nevada mountains in return...this car-trip takes around 6 hours (with one break).

We found great beaches at Torre de Mar, but also enjoyed the "local" beach that you get to by driving under the highway. The house is located 5km from the highway, and it takes 10 minutes to get up/down to the house. We can recommend this house for anyone that are looking for a relaxing environment, and a comfortable stay around Malaga.

The villa is located about 6 kilometres inland from the main Malaga-Nerja motorway at 1500 ft above sea level, close to the white villages of Macharaviaya and Benaque. It's in a rural setting,the surrounding countryside is covered in almond trees, vines and mangoes. The villa is not overlooked and there are very few houses in the vicinity, ensuring total privacy. The villa is on a minor side road with virtually no traffic, making it very quiet and peaceful.

10 minutes drive down to 18 hole Añoreta golf course,18 hole par 72, designed by Jose Cañizares, and 15 minutes away from the beach. Eroski hypermarket is 20 minutes away and Carrefour hypermarket 15 minutes away.

Swimming pool not available low season,1-30 April.
