Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

Traditional house with private pool, sea views and mountains

In the midst of nature, in the natural park of Sierra Tejeda, you will taste an unexpected tranquility in this villa decorated with taste and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable vacation. Divided into two parts, the house has a double bedroom, a bathroom with tub and separate shower, a lounge / dining room with TV and wood burning stove for winter evenings and a fully equipped kitchen. The second bedroom is separated from the main house and has an en suite bath. All rooms open onto terraces and shaded patios with views of the surrounding hills and the sea beyond. The garden is a delight, steps lead to an outdoor shower and pool, which is designed to sit comfortably, have a drink or read and watch the sunset. The property is just minutes from the village and close to the coast and its activities and services.

Casa Almendra is surrounded by a garden which has a large variety of trees and plants. The main screened in porch to enjoy the shade and equipped with a table and four chairs for dining outside. There is also a barbecue and utensils. On the front deck there are four chairs. Steps lead down from the garden and pool. On the pool deck there are four sunbeds tan. This deck is partially shaded by an ancient carob tree. The second bedroom opens onto a small courtyard and a large patio shaded by a huge oak tree Spanish 300 years old. Another path and steps lead by an outdoor shower surrounded by jasmine and cypress and also at the pool. The oval shaped pool has a current seat all around. The gardens themselves are surrounded by wild vegetation that is a haven for birds.

Located on the border of National Park of Almijara and Sierra Tejeda you have endless opportunities to venture to discover the fauna and flora. You will see all kinds of birds, smallest to hawks and eagles, chameleons even venture into the garden and you may see also a boar trotting down the road. The area is ideal for hiking and excursions, such as the four-hour climb to the summit of Maroma mountain that starts in the center of the village of Canillas de Aceituno. It is also possible to go horseback riding in the national park or biking on mountain roads. The wild and pure beauty of the surroundings offer wonderful possibilities for photographers and painters. If you like more relaxing holiday there are good restaurants in all the local villages nearby and good shopping to do in Velez-Malaga and Torre Del Mar, which also host an excellent market on Thursday. During the summer months there are festivals and local celebrations almost every weekend in different villages and towns all around. Canillas de Aceituno is one of the most picturesque and has two good restaurants and a lot of beautiful little bars, various small shops selling everything you need during your vacation, two banks, a well-stocked pharmacy and a post office. The people are friendly and welcoming although the village is not very 'touristy'. If you need a larger supermarket you will find several in Torre Del Mar, where it is worth taking time in some small establishments where you will find excellent fresh vegetables, meat and seafood.

The coast and nearest beach are those of the lovely Spanish resort of Torre Del Mar. The city offers excellent sandy beaches, restaurants of quality seafood and many specialty shops. There is also the golf Baviera. The coast is about 30 minutes from the property.

Velez Malaga, the largest city in the area, has an old neighborhood to visit.

Malaga with its great cathedral and the Picasso Museum is also a must visit.

The villa is located approximately 2 hours from the Sierra Nevada and its ski resort. Malaga airport is around 45 minutes.

We strongly recommend to have a car for your stay. There are many car rental agencies located at Malaga airport.

Peaceful remote location surrounded by nice villages and restaurants. Close to lots of areas to hike and photo opportunities. Villa has lots of character with a nice garden path to the pool. It also has a great view from the balcony.

Fantastic retreat

  • 5 of 5

A lovely countryside cottage in a beautiful garden with fantastic views. Everything needed was in the cottage, which was very clean, comfortable and ideal for a family holiday. Older children will like the fact that they can lock themselves away in the second bedroom (self contained) and not be disturbed! Close enough to the coast and Malaga for some variety, try Almayate for a quiet beach, and also within striking distance of Granada and the wonderful Alhambra. But relaxing on the patio and next to the pool was an equally excellent way to spend some time in the sun.

Un petit coin de paradis.....

  • 5 of 5

..... qui se mérite: On accède à la maison par une piste sinueuse et escarpée à flan de montagne, le ravin n'est jamais très loin, mais une fois arrivé, on ne regrette pas.

La vue est splendide, la maison est petite mais bien aménagée et confortable, les salles de bain spacieuses. Les 3 terrasses permettent de profiter de l'extérieur selon l'envie, ombre ou soleil, à toute heure de la journée.

Au printemps, les pois de senteur avait colonisé le jardin. Amandiers, grenadier, lantana, cactées ficoïdes solanum, lauriers, eucalyptus vous invitent au farniente.

Le village à 5mn de voiture est très plaisant. Les habitants sont très accueillants. Il y a un tas d'échoppes où se ravitailler, poisson , fruits et légumes, épiceries, quincaillerie, boulanger, en mode slowlife. sans oublier bars et restau.

La cuisine pourrait être un peu plus équipée en ustensiles mais c'est relatif chez nous, la bouffe c'est sacré!

De là, nous sommes allés à Grenade, Nerja, Malaga. Parfait aussi pour les adeptes de rando et les amoureux du calme.

Lovely cottage with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This endearing cottage has everything you need for a pleasant stay. The old cortijo is beautifully restored with eye for detail and authenticity. It is situated in a beautiful countryside and has a very pretty garden. The main patio faces south and is very inviting. The views are stunning. Peace and quiet in abundance and lots of opportunities for hiking. We enjoyed our stay very much.

The road up to the cottage is a really nice drive. Nearby Canillas de Aceituno is a pretty and relaxed village. The place is close enough to the coast for a day at the beach, or a visit to Malaga.

What a nice place.

  • 5 of 5

If you like to stay in the countryside in the hills, this is the place to be. The villa has a magnificent view from the terrace. My wife and me ( we are a Dutch couple )have been here for two weeks. Every evening the sunset was fantastic to see. Distance to the costa is not far and the villages in the surounding are very nice. The villa has everything you need to live, bathroom with bath and shower, kitchen with oven and refrigarator with great freezer. If you love privacy and peace you gonna like it here.

Magnifique endroit !!

  • 5 of 5

Quel lieu superbe ! Vue(s) superbe(s) sur les montagnes/collines. Jardin méditerranéen plein de saveur et terrasses qui invitent à la flemmardise. Pourtant les ballades à pieds dans le coin, l'apéro au village de Canillas, l'exploration des villages blancs ou la dégustation d'un poisson grillé sur la cote sont autant de plaisirs.

La maison est confortable (et fraiche même en plein mois d'aout) et comporte tous les conforts ... Bref de quoi passer de très bonnes vacances andalouses
