Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Vélez-Málaga - Casa del Algarrobo

Swimming pool, beach or lakeside relaxation, balcony/terrace, car advised

Set in outstanding countryside this exceptional and authentic property boasts spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and is located in an entirely unspoilt rural location. From the secluded private swimming pool you have superb views down the valley. The property is on two levels, both with independent access, making it ideal for two families who wish to holiday together retaining some privacy.

The closest village Canillas de Aceituno (10 mins) is still very much a Spanish village with a selection of interesting bars, restaurants, small shops and a weekly market. Visit nearby Velez- Malaga with its large out -of- town shopping center and water park or for a relaxing day then head for the long sandy beaches and the boulevard of Torre del Mar (20 min by car). A truly blissful location with outstanding natural beauty and tranquility but still within easy reach of all the best the Spanish coast has to offer.

The property is on two levels, both with independent access, making it ideal for two families who wish to holiday together retaining some privacy.

Lower level:Living room, Kitchen/dining area, 1 double en suite bedroom (incl. bathroom), with access to a lovely inner courtyard with stone oven. Attached to the lower level property is the central large terrace including gas-BBQ, large table and parasol. In the evenings it is great to gather around and enjoy the tranquility in the warm evening sun.

Upper level: Living room, Kitchen, 2 bedrooms 1 double 1 twin (suitable for children due to low headroom at one end). Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Open sided stairs with low ceiling to second floor: 1 double bedroom with en-suite shower room with toilet. Electric heating inc. satellite TV, DVD, M/wave, W/machine, two separate balconies.

Why Deborah Voorbij chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

We have owned the property for 7 years and try and get out as often as possible. We are biased of course but we think it is a little slice of heaven. Set in a tranquil valley with breathtaking views from the many terraces and balconies. Th private swimming pool has a magnificent view and the house all the comforts and modern conveniences you could hope for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your kind comments, below is the translation for anyone who's Dutch is a little rusty.

I'll go again to this house every year. I keep coming back it is never boring. We usually get no further than the pool because it is such a fine place you don't really want to leave that spot. The place is Ideal for lazy nature lovers , with a cocktail at the pool you can see the eagles fly by. This year we did however do a bit more. -We visited Sierra Nevada , where they were still skiing and saw the beautiful gorge of Monachil . Driving by car via the Sedella Nerja was definitely worth it. There is a fantastic autoroute north of Nerja along a rocky coastline with turquoise sea. We also went to Ronda which was two hours away but worth the trip up through cloud topped mountains,- Ronda was spectacular! The same applies to the nature Torcal and the flamingos in Fuente de Piedra; returning home at the end of each day to this wonderful place. Next year we will be here again.

Such a Magical place and beautiful Villa.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice now and absolutely love it. Los Capitos is a beautiful hamlet set in the Vally amongst the orange and Avocado groves and the Villa is situated in the perfect spot to enjoy it. The Villa it was very clean and had super views across the Vally. The kitchen was well equipped and that's always a plus for me as we always tend to opt for Self catering so we can enjoy the local food. If and when we come back we will always choose to stay here. Thank you Kacey for great communication and letting us stay in such a beautiful villa. (Also we managed to use the pool because we were lucky enough to have such fantastic weather for the end of October). Thanks again x

The house is set set in the beautiful province of Andalucia, within the Axarquía region. It is one of the most beautiful inland routes in Malaga province, where the road climbs up to the Axarquía region, passing the area´s hub of Vélez-Málaga before encountering the spectacular limestone mountains of the Sierras of Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park. Sheltering in these mountains and its foothills are the attractive villages of Canillas de Aceituno, Frigiliana, Cómpeta, Colmenar and Comares.

Year round the climate is mild to warm where you can enjoy a holiday any time of the year.

There are many other fascinating places to visit including the ancient city of Ronda, Picasso's birthplace Malaga and for luxury Marbella is not too far (1,5 hours by car).

The Canillas de Aceituno / Los Capitos area

Close to the outskirts of Pasada de Granadillos where Los Capitos is situated there are great walking tracks. Walking is a very nice activity round this area, with unique flora and fauna.

There are five signposted driving routes in the Axarquía region, named the Mudejar route (passing through villages noted for their architecture); the Raisin Route (referring to the drying out of the famous moscatel grape grown locally); the Oil and Mountains Route; the Sun and Avocado Route; and the Sun and Wine Route.

In the summer you have a variety of stunning beaches all within easy reach, the nearest being Torre del Mar (15-20 mins by car).
