Such a lovely villa! Perfect for family holidays with easy access to the village and Granada. Has absolutely everything you might need! The owner was very friendly and gave us lots of information about the villa, the surrounding areas and things to do. The local agent who met us on arrival and departure was also very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning again in the future!
Stunning property in fantastic location.
The property was simply stunning, the best holiday home we have ever stayed at, it had everything you needed and more. The swimming pool was gorgeous and really helped us chill out after a good days sightseeing.
It's location is superb for Granada and the Alhambra Palace, both easily accessible in under 30 minutes.
Manuel the owner was so informative, he really did tell us exactly what we needed to know, how to get into the city, where to park, which restaurant and bars to go to, so full of information for us and always accessible, whatever time we contacted him, he simply couldn't have been any better, and I will tell everyone I know what a wonderful place he has to rent.
Thank you so much Manuel and your niece Begona for making our holiday so perfect.
Otura is a small town with wonderful amenities and was a pleasure to explore and enjoy, everyone was so welcoming and friendly towards us.
The drive from Malaga Airport takes 90 minutes and goes through stunning scenery, whether you take the coastal route or the inland route both are equally gorgeous, we did both to and from the airport and so glad we did.
We will definitely try to get back to this wonderful property and recommend you also take time to visit.
Thanks again and please accept our Kindest regards

Beautiful villa near Granada
Spacious and very well equipped villa with great heated swimming pool, terrace & gardens. The owner Manuel was very friendly & accommodating. He met us on arrival, showed us round & had some food & drinks waiting for us. Manuel gave us good advice on places to visit, local transport & places to park.
The location was very good, close to the Santa Clara Golf Course where my husband enjoyed a couple of rounds of golf at a reasonable price - 55 Euros per round with buggy, breakfast and drink & tapas included. The villa is only 15 mins drive to Granada & Nevada Shopping Mall & 30-60 mins to drive up to some lovely mountain villages in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Alhambra Palace & gardens was the highlight of the holiday & was very easy to reach from the villa with good parking very near the entrance but go early.
There is a good supermarket in easy walking distance from the villa & a few restaurants in Otura. The only negative about the restaurants was that they didn’t start serving food till 8pm or later which was too late for us.
Overall a great place to stay & I would highly recommend this villa.
Brilliant place to stay
The villa exceeded our expectations. It is extremely modern, spacious and luxurious. It was beautifully maintained and everything was in the best of order.
Alejandro, the manager, was attentive and available without being intrusive.
The views from the pool area are superb and the barbecue and dining area are wonderful. Granada is a 15 minute drive away but there is a bus that goes into the city that stops a couple of hundred yards away. It takes 25 minutes and is great for those who do not want to drive.
The villa is on the edge of a small town and restaurants, bars and shopping are all within easy walking distance. The location is fantastic.
I'd recommend it to anyone. If you need more information, tweet me on @tonyevans92a
Thank you Tony, your comments are greatly appreciated, particularly because your and your family have returned year after year,
Heerlijke Villa in super mooie omgeving
Heerlijk genoten van de mooie Villa. Bij aankomst super goed ontvangen. Met verse broodjes, tomaat en ei en een koude cola konden we meteen genieten en bijkomen van de reis. De Villa is van alle gemakken voorzien, voelt als thuiskomen met een super fijn zwembad, super aardige eigenaren die goede adviezen en tips geven gedurende de vakantie. Supermarkt lekker dichtbij.
De villa ligt in een super mooie omgeving, een goed vetrekpunt. Dichtbij het super mooie en gezellige Granada. Dichtbij de Sierre Nevada en de avontuurlijke wandelingen bij Monachil. Kortom genieten. We hebben genoten en willen zeker terugkomen.
La casa en si misma está normal aunque muy mejorable en limpieza e iluminación.
En general resulta incómoda por las normas no escritas de la propiedad respecto a la iluminación, luces encendidas durante toda la noche y comunicación interna con los semisotanos a los cuales no tenemos acceso y una serie de detectores de movimiento que unos funcionan y otros no sabemos, al igual que las cámaras del jardín. A nuestra llegada la casa no estaba acondicionada, falta de limpieza en general y cocina en particular.
Nos sorprende y nos preocupa mucho mas los comentarios de nuestros recientes visitantes, porque es la primera vez en tantos años que tenemos un comentario negativo, sobre nuestra casa, muy apreciada por previos visitantes como consta sus testimonios en nuestro libro de visitantes . Nos preocupa especialmente nuestra cuidadosa limpieza dados los comentarios fueron, muy positivos cuando a la llegada de estos visitantes.
A su llegada nuestro agente se les informo que por razones de seguridad en un entorno nuevo, seria aconsejable que dejasen las lamparas de mesa en recibidor y salon ya que ambas tienen con su correspondiente lampars LED y temporizador (timer set 19.00- 12.00) aunque si lo deseaban las PODIAN apagar con su interrruptor manual.
igualmente se les informo que las camaras externas y detectores de movimientos internos no eran reales, Fakes, pasivos y solo disuasorios.
Al dia siguiente de su llegada, nos informaron que habia varios problemas.
Inmediatamente nuestro agente fue a la casa y fue informada que el horno no les parecia adecuado, se procedio a revisar toda las casa y en especial la cocina que se limpio otra vez a fondo, esto se cardo aprox 4 horas.
Los visitantes agradececieron la rapidez de actuacion y resultado final, pero aun no estaban muy contentos porque la casa estaba fria, se les aviso que no habian contrataron la calefaccion, claramente indicado en Homeaway website como un extra adicional.
Como gesto de buena voluntad y para evitar quejas, ofrecimos GRATIS :
a)- Nuevas bandejas del Horno. [€50.00]
b)- Un set nuevo de sartenes de maxima calidad (de Cobre) [€68.00]
c)-Generoso Welcome-pack, incluyendo Vinos y Cavas de calidad, embutidos, quesos, Pan, Leche, etc Frutas, etc, [€42.00]
d)- 2 semanas GRATIS de Calefaccion Central por radiadores, valorado en 108.0€ semana (total €216.00) .
f)-Cena complementaria (gratis) en una Marisqueria de Lujo, que gustosamente aceptaron y degustaron con cava sin restriccion el dia 7 de Marzo. [€108.63]
Nos sorprendio antes de irse el dia 1, no pagaron por 2 semanas de calecalefaccion....
En esta ocasion, en principio, aceptamos las demandas para evitar una queja oficial o malos comentarios en HomeAway website....
Siempre hemos sido mas que generosos, ejemplares y sobre todo respetuosos como demuestran los muchos otros testimonios PREVIOS , pero no podemos aceptar la devolucion del coste del rental a cambio de un testimonio positivo.
