A very comfortable and characterful property with stunning views from all aspects.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful retreat from the stresses of everyday life, the property offers all you could ask for in relation to self- catering whether you wish to barbecue, bake, boil, fry, roast or microwave. With three terraces to choose from and a private pool, there is plenty of choice for relaxation.

The area is rich in beautiful countryside with gleaming white hilltop villages and walks to suit all levels from easy to challenging. Excellent territory for mountain biking. If art and culture interest you, you are in striking distance of La Alhambra and Granada as well as Malaga and the Museo Picasso.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and simple layout with perfect views from the balconies. Lovely pool area. Owners very welcoming and helpful, arrived well after dark to find wine and snacks waiting! Written directions were great- amazing road to get there! Definitely need a car. Some great places to eat not to far away. Great location to explore the Costa del Sol. Hoping to get back next year

We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a peaceful place to spend our holidays and we found it at Attico El Monte. The apartment is located on the second floor of a house where the owners live but they were very discreet and quiet. It is exactly as it shows in the pictures. The pool has a private entrance so we were the only ones that used it. The weather was amazing so we could enjoy it during our stay!

The road to arrive to the house was a bit steep and there are no stores or restaurants nearby but we brought our own food so it was not a problem. We would repeat again!

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay, and we loved meeting 'Spiderman'! The road is steep as we are in the mountains of Andalucia. There are local stores and restaurants within a 10/15 minute drive if you wanted to venture out, but it is a good idea to stock up before you come so you can relax and chill which is what you did. Hope to see you again another time, you would be very welcome!

Een heerlijke plek om een week door te brengen.

  • 4 of 5

Vanaf de twee terrasjes een mooi uitzicht op de omringende heuvels. Het was erg heet en in het huisje bleef de warmte lang hangen. De ventilator bleef dag en nacht draaien. Maar het zwembad waar we alleen gebruik van maakten was heerlijk. De weg er maar toe is wel erg steil en heeft veel bochten en is daardoor niet altijd even overzichtelijk. Met onze gehuurde fiat 500 was het veelal plankgas in de eerste versnelling. Van binnen is de woning leuk ingericht. Het bed lag prima. Buiten rond het zwembad kwam wat verwaarloosd over. Maar misschien had dat te maken met de tijd van het jaat en droogte.

kleine Auszeit...

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben die einfach-charmante Einzimmer Wohnung und Ausstattung im Obergeschoss des Hauses der sehr netten Vermieter als gemütlich empfunden und uns dort wohl gefühlt. Vor allem die Ruhe und Aussicht von der Terrasse aus waren jeden Moment erholsam und wunderschön. Die beiden Katzen waren dort liebe Dauergäste, aber sie verstanden durchaus auch, dass "drinnen sein" nicht erwünscht war... Für große Menschen ist das Bett leider ziemlich kurz. Super privater Pool, hübsche Möbel ringsum. Wunderschöne Ausischten auf guten Spazierwegen, unweit vom Kalachakra-Stupa.

The location of the property is in the Andalucía mountains with views of Lake Vinuela all around, it is also within 15/20 minutes of the local beaches of Torre del Mar, and the Port of Caleta too.... Great location for walkers in the winter months and superb for soaking up the sun relaxing at the attico or visiting the local seaside resorts. A real retreat. The location is a great base for exploring Spain if you want to, or for just chilling out and staying put in the summer months, or exploring the more local areas in the cooler months and if you enjoy walking there are many many routes around and about to explore. The local beaches of Torre del Mar, and the port of Caleta are within 20/25 minutes, unspoilt and uncommerical seaside towns. Also not too far away are the beaches of Torrox and Nerja, Nerja being a much bigger seaside resort with a great selection of restaurants and shops. Locally in Caleta there is a fabulous lady called Ena who does great trips on her boat and everyone who has been on the trip has highly recommended it. Malaga city is always a good day out, it offers beach and city interest, and The Picasso Museum is always a must, plus there are some other smaller museums such at The Car Museum which is very popular. Centrally located for day trips to Granada and the Alhambra, Cordoba and its Mesquita, Ronda, Gibraltar and Malaga City. For the water sports enthusiasts there are facilities in Nerja, also horse-riding near Periana and a water park in Velez-Malaga for the young ones. We can also organise guided walks in the area with an experienced local mountain guide.
