About the property

Idyllic wooden house with stunning sea views, 5 km to the beach

Our FincaMariposa, with Casa Mariposa and Casa Salamandra is very idyllic and rural location and ideal for nature lovers.

There is a spacious veranda with seating and stunning sea views at the front. In addition, a familial, romantic garden with swimming pool, typical barbecue and lounge facilities. A nature reserve borders the south-facing plot and invites to hiking and mountain biking, or just relaxing.

A car is essential, since the Finca 10 km outside the nearest town and 500 m above lies. From the main road gutausgebauten a about 4 km long winding, paved road to the Finca high.

Surroundings: There are numerous sports and excursions. The culturally interssante Granda and modern Malaga are easily accessible in every hour by car. Various locations along the coast offer restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and a variety of sports facilities (such as the results from our windsurfing and sailing school 'Wind Surf la Herradura'). There are several beautiful beaches in the immediate area.

Right outside our front door, visitors can enjoy beautiful scenery: exotic Obstplantgen, fascinating sunrises - and sunsets with views of neighboring villages. During the winter months you can enjoy the sight of the snow-capped Sierre Nevada.

The stretch of coast between La Herradura and Nerja is beautiful and can show some attractions, such. B. the Grotto 'La Paloma' which can only be reached by sea from, by kayak.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay and warmly recommend others to visit! The small road up to Finca was a bit of a draw back, but the Finca itself was great. A couple of wall and/or reading lamps, with a good, brighter light in the living room would have been good during evening hours. The owners are very friendly and accommodating.

Ein Traum

  • 5 of 5

Mein Partner und ich (beide 34 Jahre alt) haben uns bewusst für ein Häuschen entschieden, das nicht mitten im Touristen-Zentrum liegt. Da wir in einer Großstadt leben, wollten wir unseren 8-tägigen Aufenthalt dazu nutzen, so richtig zur Ruhe zu kommen. Es war perfekt! Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld war hervorragend. Da wir mitten in der Nacht ankamen, waren Kathrin und Rob so nett, schon das nötigsten für den nächsten Tag für uns einzukaufen. Somit konnten wir mit Kaffee und frischem Obst in den Tag starten. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht. Häufiger als die Küche haben wir allerdings den tollen Grill benutzt! Das Haus und die Außenanlage mit Pool und Sitzmöglichkeiten waren super sauber und top gepflegt. Zum Strand fährt man etwa 10 Minuten mit dem Auto, in die City bzw. den nächsten Supermarkt braucht man ca. 15 - 20 Minuten. Vom Flughafen waren es etwa 60 Minuten. Auch hier hatten wir im Vorfeld eine spitzenmäßige Wegbeschreibung von Kathrin und Rob bekommen.

Kathrin und Rob waren großartige Gastgeber! Sie gaben uns Tipps und halfen uns bei der Orga unserer Ausflüge! Das war wirklich toll!

Fazit: Perfekt!

Danke :)
