|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
A tastefully renovated Andalusian farmhouse, surrounded by it's own gardens and with the most wonderful views - La Luna provides the seclusion and peace required for the best of holidays. All the comforts of home are on-hand in the spacious rooms and now available is a delightful ensuite double bedroom in the pool side cabaña, however, if you feel like getting out, there are plenty of good local restaurants, markets and shops a few minutes away. The Mediterranean is one of the views and a short drive away for the pleasures of the beach, water-sports, diving etc. All the attractions of Marbella, Sevilla, Grenada, Cordoba are there for extended day-trips - with Malaga and Nerja even closer - but - why not relax by the pool or on one of our shaded terraces and enjoy your place in the sun.
La Luna: is secluded from any neighbours - and is on a private track overlooking the slopes of a verdant valley, covered in olive and almond groves and grape vines. The only disturbances may be the occasional farmer on his mule or goat herder with his animals. For those who love the sound of birds singing, relaxing with a good book - or an all-over suntan - you will find these and more at La Luna.
Local attractions: - - La Luna is in a collection of widely scattered rural houses at the top of a low mountain ridge. A few miles away is Lake Vinuela with swimming, golfing and now with a number of good quality restaurants. Some 12 miles on is the typically Spanish town of Velez Malaga, with banks, cinemas and a major shopping centre. A few miles further and you are in the beach resort of Torre del Mar with all the usual water-parks, well maintained beachfront with bars, restaurants, discos, water sports....
Axarquia: - the south-east portion of Malaga province - is made up of mountains and the Mediterrean coastline. The mountains are largely protected national parks - somewhat wild and barren, with a band of varied agricultural lands on the slopes down to the sea. It's an old area - prehistoric man was here, the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Moors all were visitors and it has it's own deep beauty. La Luna is in the centre of all this - with ready access to Malaga, Nerja and with Granada, Cordoba, Marbella and even Sevilla close enough for a day trip.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this rural villa. We spent most of our time in and around the pool with the water a constant 28°C. The weather was perfect and the villa had everything you could possibly need. The local caretaker, Joerg, was friendly and helpful. Contact with the owners was good - thank you.
What more can one say that hasn't already been said about this fantastic property in an idyllic position and having rented villas for the past 16 years this was up there with the best of them.
The accommodation was spacious and the outside areas providing both shady and sunny places to sit and relax with views to die for whilst the pool provided a cool relief from the heat of the day.
Facilities were second to none and the kitchen had everything – and I mean everything – that you could ask for with the rest of the property being extremely comfortable and homely with large rooms and the bed being the biggest ever!
It would have been very easy just to have stayed put and shut ourselves off from the rest of the world for two weeks but for those who like to go sightseeing then there are plenty of places within easy reach.
This property is well recommended and our thanks David and Jose for allowing us to share their corner of paradise – we had a great time.
PS Watch out for the 'goat' man!!
What a lovely relaxing week we spent here. A real get away from it all peaceful holiday. The villa is cosy and comfortable with a lovely well equipped kitchen. The pool area and garden were lovely and we spent most of our day moving from pool to shaded terrace to kitchen and back to the pool again. The views are beautiful across the valley and its very easy to just do nothing!
We did venture out for a couple of day trips to Comares (the hilltop village) and Cutar - both of which can be seen across the valley, and also a day trip to Cordoba and a visit to the Mezquita - which was stunning.
All in all, a fantastic time - we came back refreshed and chilled and ready to face an English winter!
Thanks very much.
La Luna is a beautiful villa, full of rustic charm, with colourful gardens and stunning views. It is spacious, well equipped and well maintained both inside and out. It has the most welcoming and peaceful feeling about it. The gardens were bursting with colour during our stay and we particularly loved the honeysuckle that covered the pergola.
There are so many areas around the villa to relax and enjoy the glorious weather, scenery and tranquil atmosphere that you really are spoiled for choice (watching the sun set from the roof terrace should not be missed!). In the evenings, the lighting around the villa and pool makes it even more enchanting, from the fairy lights around the pergola and barbeque area to the coloured lighting at the front of the villa. It is the most perfect place to relax and unwind and we would highly recommend it - we knew it was going to be beautiful, but the photographs do not do it justice. Thank you David and Jose, we had the most wonderful time at La Luna and really do hope to re-visit soon
I can't begin to express how happy we were with LaLuna. Our time spent relaxing by the pool and easy day Tapa's made in the fine kitchen were fantastic. We were very sorry to leave but, only hope to return again some time soon.
David and Jose
Your Villa is exquisite!
There are so many magical things about our stay at La Luna, it is difficult to express them. The main thing is the total peace we felt after arriving. The views are of course, spectacular but it is the whole atmosphere that contributes to our relaxation. We watched the swallows do their aeral accrobatics around the pool in the evening with a glass ( or two) of Rioja, turned on the pool and garden lights and thoroughly enjoyed the quiet. La Luna itself is wonderfully restored, and was a total ruin before. The master bedroom with its US king bed and wonderful sheets (such a luxury) gave us some wonderful night's sleep. We loved our stay and even got 'used' to the track.
We are coming back!
La Luna is in the mountains some 15 mins from Velez Malaga, 20 minutes from the Mediterrean at Torre del Mar and some 60 minutes from Malaga airport, 90 minutes from Grenada airport. We are 2 kilometres off the main road (A-356) at Lake Vinuela up a mountain road.
