Excellent! 4.5/5 -
(8 traveller reviews)

Tucked in the mountains of Andalucia with private pool close to local be
average rating of 4.5 based on 8 reviews

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

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.

Un séjour parfait

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 1 semaine avec mon mari et mon bébé dans cette maison . Le séjour à été excellent nous avons profité de la piscine qui est totalement privée et dans vis à vis et la maison est en parfait état sans parler de la vue des montagnes de malaga. Juste magnifique

Les locataires Gill et Chris sont d'une gentillesse incroyable. Je recommande vivement cet endroit

très bonne accueil des propriétaires ,la prestation est satisfaisante dans un jolie cadre .

par contre je vais émettre quelque resserve

Electroménager a rafraîchir .

il y a aussi des clients français qui loue, des chaînes tv française serais un plus

et pour nous ce qui nous a le plus déranger se sont les aboiements des chiens environnent que se soit le matin très tôt ou le soir très tard.

Superbe séjour à Vinuela. Un lieu idéal pour de très belles vacances

  • 4 of 5

Le calme et la tranquillité du lieu situé à l'écart des zones touristiques très fréquentées, associé à la discrétion et la gentillesse de ses propriétaires en font un cadre idéal pour des vacances reposantes. Le gite dispose de tout le confort nécessaire. La piscine qui est bien entretenue et le jardin sont laissés à entière disposition des vacanciers c'est très appréciable. L'endroit est absolument charmant. Un véhicule est indispensable pour les déplacements. Certains équipements( lave linge, matériel de jardin) mériteraient un petit rafraîchissement pour rendre le tout parfait. Delphine

Car: necessary

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.
