Las Golondrinas is situated halfway up a beautiful Andalusian valley and is the most truly perfect paradise to chill out and completely unwind from the stresses and strains of modern life. Our villa is like a real home, with attention to every detail. The living room and main bedroom have got aircon, though the house is very thermally stable and doesn't get unbearably hot even in the height of summer, and the two other bedrooms have got large ceiling fans. Great base to explore the region, or as a relaxing retreat. Large spacious totally private pool area set in exotic landscaped gardens. The villa has sunbeds at the pool, teak garden furniture and a large BBQ and entertainment area, perfect for parties. This is a great place for families, couples or groups of friends. The nearest beach is 20 mins drive. The pretty town of Nerja is about 40 mins away, large water park 15 mins drive, numerous charming, local white villages, walking and hiking routes for all levels through scenic terrain. Kitchen is big and bright, fully equipped, and have basics such as salt, sugar, spices etc.

Bruce Perry purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Bruce Perry chose Viñuela
It took us a long time to choose between the offered properties, because you get carried away by the overwhelming choice, but this villa stood out due to its tranquil location, with its stunning views down the valley over the lake, and up towards the awesome mountain ranges. It was obvious that the builders had taken great care to the details and design and had taken into account the natural light and the house is orientated the best way possible. It is a very spacious house, and the huge kitchen, overlooking the swimming pool and the mountains, is just fabulous. I guess you can say the house has got feng shui!
What makes this Villa unique
The house fells like a real home, there is attention to every detail inside, and to sit outside at night time and see the moon come up over the mountains to reflect its light in the lake must be experienced, it can't be told. We spend a lot of time gardening, which is our common passion, if you like gardening yourself you will enjoy Las Golondrinas immensely as the gardens are quite unique!

Fantastic property and great customer service from Bruce
Great venue and would definitely recommend
This villa exceeded expectations. The location is brilliant (if you like peace and quiet) and the views to the lake spectacular. The villa is extremely well equipped, furnished and decorated. It has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay. The outside space (gardens, pool area etc are very well designed and attractive. If you are looking for a high quality villa in a beautiful part of Spain then do not hesitate to book Las Gollondrinas. You won't regret it. The owner couldn't more helpful and friendly.
Fabulous villa' amazing views
My family and I had three wonderful weeks in this villa. It has everything you need for a perfect holiday, Bruce and his wife are very attentive and have good ideas of where to visit and explore this wonderful part of Spain. We will definitely be back....thanks for making our holiday really special.
Glad you enjoyed it, looking forward to having you back!
Great Place, wonderful owners!!
Just returned from a 10 days stay in Las Golondrinas, two words sum it up: absolutely fabulous ! The incredible views take your breath away as soon as you arrive, and the villa does not disappoint the moment you step through the door. Bruce met the two of us and started the grand tour around, pointing out things like the wifi, tv, heating, local restaurants, villages and beaches to visit. To say this villa has everything you could possibly want would be an understatement! With the winter sunshine and complete peace and quiet around the house we found it easy to do as Bruce pointed out … chill out and relax … we will be back !!!!
We (2 couples and mom) stayed in villa Las Golondrinas in November 2015. The weather was faboulas. 22 degrees during the days. The first day there were some little things that did not work but we called Bruce immediatly and he fixed it on the spot. Very friendly people Bruce and Gunilla. It is a villa with all the basic needs. Only a desillusion there was no dishwasher. We cooked a lot lot for our selfs and in a holiday doing disches is not so fun. Also the matrasses on the bed where not so comfortable and the matrasses for outside are not so clean. Outside you have a spectacular view over the lake but also on the side of the swimming pool a little bit below is a farmer with some noisi dogs an animals with a lot of smell and flys
Thank you for your review, we always appreciate feed back in order to provide the best holiday for our guests. We have already updated mattresses inside trying to find some that will suit everybody, but each person is different. Mattresses outside are replaced every season, and we encourage guests to place beach towels (which are provided) on top, as obviously they get suncreamed to death :) Sorry you had a problem with the farm, it has never caused an issue with smell or noise before, and the flies have been a nationwide problem here in Spain all summer (and appearently are here to stay until temperatures get under 15 degrees).
Lake Vinuela Idyll - Ideal!!
Beautiful and spacious villa with outstanding views and the photos really do not do it justice. The property is clean and well maintained, with masses of outside seating areas, most enjoying the beautiful views of the lake and surrounding countryside, not to mention the beautifully planted gardens around the villa. The 'chill out' area with the outside music system was especially appreciated by us two couples here to celebrate 50th birthdays!!
The villa is remote and a car is absolutely essentail, although driving the 'road' up to the villa can leave you feeling a little bit shaken and stirred!!
Directions to the meeting point were spot on and Bruce & Gunila were there to show us round and see us get settled in.
If I was being hypercritical, I would suggest that some new pillows for the interior beds and new cushions for the outside seating would be appreciated.
One word of advice, insect repellant is an absolute must of an evening if you are dining or relaxing outdoors; citronella candles alone did not prevent one of our party sustaining a few large and irritating bites!!
The nearest beach is around 20 mins away by car, choose between well-known Nerja or Torre del Mar, or go to less known, smaller beaches as in Almayate or Benajarafe. In Torre del Mar you can rent pedalos, and in Nerja/Maro you can learn how to manage a kayak.
45 minutes from Málaga Airport and 75 minutes from Granada airport. Use of car recommended. If you prefer not to drive, a nearby British neighbour offers taxi service for very reasonable prices.
Within 5 minutes drive you will find a couple of restaurants and the pretty town of Puente don Manuel is just 10 mins away. Here you will find shops and cafes. Los Romanes is also 5 mins away, where you can find a recommended Indian restaurant set up as a tent with amazing views.
Lake Viñuela offers a range of water sports, but no swimming or fishing is allowed. In Torre del Mar is a huge water park with loads of fun for small and big kids. There are endless walks in the natural park starting in Alcaucin, and also smaller walks around the house towards the lake. Depending on which season you choose, you can visit the village fairs in summer, and the abundant Christmas markets in winter.
