Spacious accommodation with 2 beds, 2 baths, (plus adjoining A/C studio if required at extra cost - only available with villa booking - ideal for grandparents or friends ) lounge/diner with Andalucian fireplace with wood burner, well equipped kitchen, English satellite TV and air-conditioning.

About Joy Floody
Hi I'm Joy & my husband's name is Tony. We have been living in Spain for several years now & love the way of life.
Joy Floody purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Joy Floody chose Torrox
We bought Casa Joya in 2004 & although the house was much more basic when we bought it with no drive, pool or terraces we fell in love with the location & spectacular views & knew that we could make it into a beautiful home so we have made many improvements. . Believe it or not it was already named (almost) after me as the man who sold it to us had a nickname of Antonio Joya! We have travelled a lot around Spain & can't find anywhere that gives us everything we want like the Torrox area can. We have beautiful views, peace & quiet but with the lively tourist resorts only a few minutes away. We can walk the lovely hillsides or the beaches & promenades. We love it & hope you will too!
What makes this Villa unique
Casa Joya is situated away from it all but with lively tourist resorts on your doorstep giving you the best of both worlds. It offers a place to relax & unwind in a home from home enjoying the spectacular views with only the sound of the birds to listen to. You won't want to leave! With the annex as well you can bring along grandparents, friends, too. We also rent out the villa next door (well, 100m away!) Casa Antonio Ref 6964133 if 2 families want to holiday together.

Our Wonderful Stay at Casa Joya.
The Villa was excellent with a lovely pool and sun terraces. Everything we needed was to hand and we made very good use of the barbecue. Joy the owner was so easy to deal with and everything was absolutely straight forward. Paul and Lizzi, the villa managers came to see us and couldn't have been more helpful with slight query we had about using one of the showers. Great to know they were on hand and at the end of a phone if we did have a problem.
Thanks to you all for a great holiday.
John & Marilyn.
Thank for your lovely review. We're pleased you had a wonderful stay and hope to see you again!
Excellent and very comfortable house, with all facilities provided.
The property was very pleasant, with a large array of cooking and eating facilities provided so that you can self cater as much as you want. There are several supermarkets within reasonable close proximities if you need to purchase your own food. There were several eating places, both indoors and outdoors whichever was more pleasant at the time.
The road up to the property from Torrox Pueblo is quite tricky, but with careful and steady driving it can be negotiated easily. My wife and I negotiated the trip almost daily and had no incidents.
The pool and air conditioning were both excellent features of the property, as the temperature while we were there was constantly above 30 deg. C. We also used the separate granny flat and found it very well appointed. We used it often so that we could have our own space away from the rest of the family for parts of the day.
The television reception was very good and as the television was a smart TV, we could watch our favourite shows on Netflix as often as we liked. There was also a good
selection of free to air shows and a UK cable system of stations, which gave good versatility in viewing pleasure.
The property was very quiet and tranquil and we were never bothered with wild animals or creatures of any sort. We regularly spent time around the pool or on the front balcony area so as to enjoy the tranquility of the beautiful early mornings or late nights with great pleasure.
We had 3 generations of family staying at the property and we all enjoyed the liveability of the property.
Thanks for a lovely, informative review! We're so pleased that you all had a lovely family holiday.
A Place Apart
Just back from 2 weeks in Casa Joya and would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking to chill out in the sun away from it all. From early mornings sitting by the pool looking out over the spectacular views of the village below and the mountains around you, to long evenings sitting round the table enjoying the stunning sunsets this place is a must!
Travelled with 3 adults and a child and found the villa, and the annex, had everything you would have wanted. Wifi was great, kitchen had it all and the outdoor bbq was given some serious usage! All the comforts of home have been taken care of by the owners and there was simply nothing I could suggest to make the experience better.
The drive up to the villa is a breeze and worth it for what you experience when get there. Will certainly be back - want to give a special shout out to Heather the property manager. She was great on the couple of occasions we needed to contact her - so prompt in responding and couldn't do enough to help.

We chose Casa Joya because of its proximity to the coast. Only 15 minutes in the car to Torrox Costa, or a few minutes more to Caleta or Torre del Mar.
Villa is well equipped and comfortable. The air conditioning is all good. The pool area is a lovely spot to spend an afternoon.
Booking the casa with Joy was straightforward, swift replies to emails as you would expect.
Thank you both for sharing your lovely home with us, and hope your not sickening of Portugal....
