My husband and I moved to this beautiful region 16 years are still singing its praises! Our children were born here and have totally embraced the Spanish way of life and language. We endured many years of toil, mañana syndrome, heat, frustration, situations lost in heard it all in the novels! We now run our own exclusive property rental business here in this spectacular region. We have a selection of beautiful properties to suit most peoples' requirements, with private pools, gardens and fabulous views. It was worth it, sometimes we even squeeze a little time to enjoy the sunshine, relaxing way of life and fabulous regional vino! Our extensive knowledge of the area we also pass on to clients to ensure they have a wonderful time.
Why Angela chose Colmenar
What makes this Villa unique
Fabulous location and views.
Pool / Spa
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Great property, with amazing views and pool. Isolated and quiet. Picturesque, great place to relax
It took a few emails and phone calls before we left to get the directions, but after we arrived Angela was very helpful. Such a lovely property which suited us very well. It is isolated, so be prepared for a taxi run to and from the village if you want to eat out.
Angela provided info on where to eat, and trip advisor saw us right.
Fantastic views and a great spot to base yourself to explore the area which is lovely.
The road down to the villa is a bit scary but we got used to it by the end.
The house could do with a bit of upgrading- my bed collapsed in the middle of the night, the bathroom door didn't work, resulting in someone getting locked in, kitchen utensils could do with being renewed etc.
But the space, views, pool and weather resulted in a fabulous holiday
Quite relaxing holiday. Beautiful scenery especially at sunrise.
Thankyou Angela we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your villa. We loved collecting eggs from the chickens and grapes from the hanging vines. The pool was an essential relief from the blazing August heat.
I think a guest book that stays at the apartment would be a really good way of passing on advice such as the best beaches, sites and restaurants to visit. Would definitely recommend this property
My husband, our young son (9 mos) and I spent a month here and we had a lovely stay! Well appointed, private location with an amazing view, exactly as in the pictures!The property is easy to get to from the airport - though the last five kms of narrow, windy road were mildly terrifying for us at first we quickly got used to it. We stayed in February so the weather was a bit chilly and we were happy to have the wood stove in the living room which kept us quite cozy. Angela is friendly and helpful when we had questions and otherwise left us to do our own thing, exactly what we were looking for. Thanks for a great stay :)
Lovely quiet spot with a fantastically beautiful view of the mountains.
Angela and her husband couldn't have been more helpful or responsive. Angela came to see us and gave recommendations for local beauty spots and places to eat. The chickens were a real hit with our teenagers and the fresh eggs every morning were the highlight of the holiday.
The place was beautiful, rustic and quiet albeit with a precarious drive/road down to it!
Would definitely recommend Angela, the house, the chickens and the area, we had the very much needed rest and holiday required.
Very pretty & charming villa with inspirational views
We have had a wonderful time at Casa Bellavista!
The surrounding views are inspirational and ever changing with the light of the day! It is worth waking early to see the sunrise over La Maroma mountain - spectactular!
We loved the villa and found it chaming and very comfortable and spent most days splashing in the pool and enjoying barbecues or playing family games - there are plenty provided. Our daughter also loved feeding the chickens, checking on the geckos each day in the tree house and playing on the slide & trampoline. Although connected to the larger farmhouse we found our villa private and not disturbed at all by our neighbour guests - in fact we wondered if they were actually there!
Colmenar is a lovely village and the local shop stocked lovely fresh fruit & vegetables and all the things you would need.
We would recomend a visit to Ronda which, although a couple of hours drive away further inland, is well worth it as it is so very beautiful and so interesting. Take the horse & carriage ride first. The drive is beautiful too and through some stunning scenery and farmland.
We will definitely be back and have fallen in love with the area 🍊😎☀️🐐🍉🍷☀️🌴
We had a wonderful holiday. Absolutely stunning location overlooking the mountains. What a marvellous place to have a dip in a swimming pool. Angela was very friendly and helpful. We did find it a little remote for a night out. You need to budget for taxis if you want to have a drink. The Balcon de los Montes in Colmenar is recommended. Very friendly and good food. If you're willing to travel up to Comares on the mountain tops, the Table Mountain restaurant is gorgeous.
Only one minor niggle with our hol - the outdoor cushions needed a wash (on both the loungers and the picnic bench. ) And the stray dog sleeping on them didn't help.
Hi Richard and Tina
Thank you for your lovely review and glad you enjoyed your holiday in our villa and the stunning views it offers.
We have also had lots of good reports for El Balcon and Table Mountain which is great as it is nice to recommend a good place. Manuel, our local taxi driver is 8 euros which I think for 2-6 persons is very reasonable if you decide not to drive into the village.
We have managed to get the local rescue group to collect and rehome the little puppy. New cushions now bought ready for our new guests arrival this week. Onwards and upwards as they say!
Thank you also for leaving the villa in a spotless condition , it is much appreciated!
Wishing you both the best and thank you again for staying with us.
