Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Robin. Just a brief note to thank you for all the information you provided and to say what a wonderful time we had at the villa. It really is a beautiful villa in a fantastic location. Our group comprised my wife and myself along with our 4 children (aged 14 - 21) and 2 of their friends. The villa had something to offer for all of us, given the layout of the rooms themselves with all of their en-suite facilities, the various terraces, the pool and the hot tub - and all of this in such close proximity to the beach with its numerous shops and restaurants!Once again, many thanks for your help and for allowing us to share that wonderful facility. Regards, John. Wales August 2010

Fantastisk villa med hänförande utsikt!!

  • 5 of 5

Vi hade en underbar vecka i detta vackra och rymliga hus. Vi saknade absolut ingenting, huset var väldigt välutrustat, i köket fanns alla redskap man behöver. Vi lagade mat till 10 pers nästan varje dag och avnjöt den på den härliga terassen med utsikt över vackra solnedgångar!

Det tog ca 12 min att gå till byn, två trappor och sen en grusväg ovanför byn och då hamnar man mitt på den fina stenstranden!

Området är lugnt och mycket vackert, med bra träning i alla uppförsbackar

Till hamnen tog det ca 20 min att gå och där finns också en fin liten strand

Husets ägare var mycket trevliga och tillmötesgående likaså Kim och Keighley som vi hade kontakt med när vi kom och åkte

Huset utgör verkligen grund för en mycket lyckad semester!!

Beautiful villa with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this property. Although slightly tired in some of the decor, it's very well appointed with stunning views of the horseshoe bay and great facilities. We were met by Keighley who could not have been more helpful and made our stay even more enjoyable. Our group of 8 with ages from 50's to 80's loved it. The walk down into the village is easy but quite a challenge on the way up. Taxi's are easy to get and reasonably priced. It's an easy walk to and from the marina which is absolutely gorgeous. It's also a peaceful location which is another bonus. Great restaurants in the village and all very friendly.

A well equipped property that lived up to our expectation. Superb views across the bay.

  • 5 of 5

A holiday enjoyed by all the members of the family; young & old. A very well maintained & equipped villa. We had no concerns about the safety around the pool as this could be locked off when there was no adult supervision. Keighley was very friendly, informative and obliging.

We ate out in Herradura on a number of occasions and found a good selection of places but having hit the end of the Spanish holidays it was very busy & we needed to book, especially being a party of 9 plus baby. A noticeable difference in the village after August 31st.

The uphill walk back from the village might be too much for some people, especially in the heat.

Wonderful villa, lovely location, definitely recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

We're 2 families who've holidayed together for 13 years and were a bit nervous as had only ever had package holidays before, So were concerned, what if the transfers didn't show?, what if the villa was horrible?, would we or the kids be bored?

Well, what can we say!!!! Firstly were impressed with the personal touch from owners Val and Chris, calling to introduce themselves, discuss the villa and being very contactable.

Absolutely loved the villa, photos didn't do it justice. Hot tub was bliss, sitting there with my book, letting the kids rule the pool. (I say kids but I mean 3 boys aged 14,14,16 and girl 17). There was so much space, the bedrooms were a great size. The kitchen had every utensil you could possibly use. We spent a lot of our time on the terrace overlooking the pool and the view of the bay, which was amazing. The barbecue was great, had a couple of those, had a curry delivered which was delicious. We walked down to the village and beach but got taxi back, which was easy as they understood English. The hill is a little steep in places and in 40 degree's heat, not for me 😀򐀠but worth it for the view. We made sure we took shopping each time to justify the taxi fare.

Kids enjoyed having the games facilities as it broke up the pool time, the garage had balls, floats and rings that they could use in the pool, which was great.

Keighley, the manager was brilliant, met us upon arrival, gave guided tour and easily contactable, we needed to speak to her a couple of times (nothing major). By the next morning she was on the case and all sorted. She was also a great source of local information, far better than any holiday rep I've encountered.

This is not a traditional tourist location, which adds to the experience in my book. The locals like when you try to use Spanish as there are many who only know a little English. The day starts later here, although we left the villa about 7.45pm each evening for a casual stroll to dinner, the locals don't seem to come out till 10pm, some restaurants provide tapas free of charge when you order drinks which were nice, the marina also has couple of restaurants and a little bay, very picturesque,worth a look,

My only tip:if there're any specific things you like to do ie: waterpark or boat trip, research before you go as tourist office wasn't a great help, then you can see if they are do-able, especially if like us you don't hire a car.

Overall we definitely recommend this villa and location 👍𣐽𣑍�

Great for a big family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We hired this in early July for a family holiday to celebrate my Mum's birthday. There were ten of us in the group and we really enjoyed the space and facilities - the boys especially liked having the pool & table tennis. The villa gets the sun all day but has plenty of shading. It has lovely views whatever the time of the day. There was something here for everyone in our party & I'd be happy to hire it again. The villa is on a leafy point overlooking La Herradura beach which is only a 15 minute walk away down a quiet track but a little more challenging on the way back uphill! Although there are local fairly frequent buses that serve the neighbourhood, and taxis are easily booked, I'd recommend travellers bring their own car or arrange car hire. There are lots of things to see & do on the Costa Tropical, e.g. cycling, paddle boarding, canoeing, wind surfing, scuba diving, etc. We particularly enjoyed our boat trip from the harbour on the other side of the point. The Nerja caves are only about a half hour away and are very impressive. They can be pre-booked & along with the pretty hilltop village of Frigiliana they make for a good day trip. We had planned to go to Granada (about an hour away north) but decided against as it was warm enough on the coast and the forecast was a good deal higher there (mid to high 30s). There are plenty small shops in La Herradura and a large Mercadona supermarket only 15 minutes away by car in Almunecar.

The nearest beach is in La Herradura village - about 10/15 minutes walk down and 20 mins back up to the villa. Only 5 mins max by car. The local marina is also only 15 mins walk or 5 mins by car.

Many other beaches are within easy reach - small secluded coves, naturist or large public beaches with all facilities. At Almunecar, about 5 kilometres east of La Herradura are many shops, beaches, plus a water park open in high summer. The beach at La Herradura has a young children's play area.


Nearest airport is Malaga, abouit 50 minutes by car or 90 minutes by bus.

Granada airport is about 75 mins by car.


There are two larger towns either side of La Herradura. Almunecar, 5 kilometres

to the East, and Nerja, about a 15 minute drive to the west. Both offer many shops and fine beaches. The city of Granada and the world famous Alhambra Palace is just over an hours drive north as are the stunning Sierra Nevada mountains with skiing available in the winter. Near Nerja are famous caves boasting the world's largest stalagmite/stalagtite column and caverns.

Further Details:

La Herradura is an old Spanish fishing village, remarkably unspoilt by modern trends and developments. It boasts a large horseshoe bay (La Herradura is Spanish for horseshoe) and a strong Moorish influence in the architecture of the 'old town' area of the village. Popular with Spanish and Northern European

Tourists alike, and retaining it's charm and culture, it must have a claim to be one of Spain's best kept secrets!
