Lovely Villa, beautiful setting
This Villa is set in the most beautiful surroundings, however it is quite some journey to reach it. A full 40 minutes of twisting, hairpin bends and then an all mighty steep driveway before we arrived with a car full of very green passengers. Not for the feint hearted. So much so that once you are up, you really don’t want to go back down until you really have to. If you get car sick, it is one to avoid. If you do have a stomach of steel however, then it is well worth it for the amazing views and absolute peace and quiet.
The villa itself if very clean and spacious and the kitchen is well stocked. Beds are very comfy although the bedding and towels are past their best and really need to be updated. The villa has a strange mix of old and new decor and my personal feeling is that less is more. However all very clean and presentable. No extras like games or cards or DVDs that can sometimes be useful so bring your own if this is your thing. Also no hand wash, toilet roll, bin liners, cleaning materials so stock up at the supermarket before you make the journey up.
Once up, there is a very small supermarket 5 mins drive away in Comares, and a bar/restaurant at the end of the street with very friendly owners.
Jose and pool man very friendly and helpful.
Overall, a great place if you just want to hide away by the pool, but not so good if you want to be out and about every day. You’ll come to dread that journey up that goes on and on and on......
Villa cool, bright & very spacious. Lovely peaceful location. Well equiped kitchen. Bathroom (bath with shower over) & shower room, both spacious with plenty of towels provided, and hot water at all times. Outside there are lots of sunloungers(with cushoins) and a lovely pool. Had a lovely relaxing week. Thanks for having us.
A glowing review we can be proud of. Los Pinos is a great place to relax with superb views and plenty of outside space. Thanks Peter for your kind words.
Good as expected in reference to previous reviews
Good location. Cool building even in 35 degrees didn't use A.C. A water leak was fixed quick with one phone call. A welcome book would have been handy . 3 bathrooms great. A good family holiday. Would recommend this villa to my friends
Los Pinos is spacious and ideal for a large family or for 2 families sharing. Jose ( who speaks English) & Rafael are only a phone call away for help, information or 24/7 in an emergency. Thanks for your kind comments Paul - I hope you will return...
Fantastic setting. Brilliant holiday
We booked it on the overall impression and the strength of the reviews. We were not disappointed and can honestly say none of us wanted to go home. Lots of fantastic memories made. We have just booked again for next year.
Dominant positioned lovely Villa
Loved the dominant position of the villa and the peaceful location, having rented villas in this region before, nicely decorated /Tiled bathrooms / En-suite nice size lounge good facilities in the kitchen, possibly a bit more ovenware would be a bonus and things like butter dish, cruet set would be good, but we had a relaxing enjoyable holiday and thought the rental was very good value for money, enjoyed the pool some respite from the 90 degree tempretures we had all in all a very good rental and really good value for money would highly recommend . We rented as a couple but all good size bedrooms for a large family .
The location and position of Los Pinos is special and unique......Looking out accross the hillside and with nobody next door! Not isolated though, a 5 min drive or 30 minute walk and you can enjoy 2 excellent bar/restaurants in Los Ventorros village. Thanks for a glowing review.
Lovely peaceful villa with fantastic views
I stayed at Los Pinos early May 2015 with friends.
The villa itself is in a lovely location, with fantastic views and provides complete privacy. It is very well laid out, so that if there is a group, you are able to be together or find your own space both in and outside of the villa. Plenty of seating, tables and sunlougers in all areas. The kitchen is very well equipped with an abundance of plates, cutlery and every conceivable utensil that you may wish to use. Absolutely everything has been thought of and provided at this villa.
We paid extra to have the pool heated and I fully recommend this to people visiting out of season.
The local Table Mountain bar/restaurant is very welcoming with staff happy to provide local information. There is a comprehensive menu with high standard of quality and presentation at very reasonable prices.
Comares is a beautiful small town, with a small, but well stocked supermarket. To reach this you have to park beneath the town and then walk up the narrow streets so therefore probably not the best for a large shop. There is a lovely small town, Riogordo, about 25 mins drive away with on street parking, providing a couple of small supermarkets, butchers, grocers, etc. Benarmagosa is probably the best for a good sized supermarket and being able to park outside, again about 25 mins away. About 10 mins further is Velez de Malaga, a much larger town with several supermarkets including a Lidl.
I fully recommend this villa and found the owner to be very quick at responding to all enquiries. Thank you and will certainly be looking to stay again.
A very thoughtful, imformative and well written review. Many guests are pleased that there is an option to heat the swimming pool outside of the main season for a small extra cost. Thank you Dianne and we hope you will visit Los Pinos again...
Villa Los Pinos is situated in the Axarquia region of Andalucia - inland from the Costa Del Sol in Southern Spain. This part of Europe enjoys a mild climate all year with typically 320 days of sunshine. Comares, the nearest 'Pueblo Blanco' Village and 700 metres above sea level, is a 5 minute drive and a convenient village base for shopping and rural eateries, pharmacy, banks etc . The sandy beaches of Torre Del Mar and the Mediterranean coastline is 25 km - 30 minutes by car, with Malaga City and Airport within a 1 hour drive. Granada and the Alhamba Palace is a 90 minute drive - a must see day trip! And Nerja has famous caves, great beaches and good shopping too; 40 km.
Villa Los Pinos will appeal to those requiring a private location with no next door neighbors. The views accross the olive trees are superb and there is an excellent local bar/restaurant and village shop in Los Ventorros hamlet - a 2 minute drive or 30 minute walk.
