Fabulous villa for a family stay
The villa was fabulous and exceeded expectations. Our family of 5 had a great time. The pool was excellent and got loads of use. The location was beautiful with the villa well positioned overlooking Lake Vinuela.
We would strongly recommend the villa. Maurice the owner was always very helpful answering any questions promptly. A great holiday was had by us all. Many thanks.
The property is beautiful and all the good points are as listed.
Owner was easy to deal with and left keys as instructed.
Just a few things to note for potential renters:
WiFi is very erratic
No a/c in communal rooms (but good a/c in all bedrooms) - this means that any socialising later in the day needs to be done in pretty hot rooms (as nearby properties mean that sitting out later on is not an option) - worth considering if visiting in summer with a group who are expecting to be up together after dark.
It is not walking distance to anywhere - car is a must (even the bin store is 2.5km away!)
Upstairs bedroom has no shutters/curtains on the “en suite” (just a continuation of the main bedroom with no door) so it gets very bright after sunrise. Wasn’t great for a good nights sleep. Won’t impact early risers though!
All in all a great villa though.
I would like to thank our guest for their feedback as this helps us to improve on what we offer future guests. Regarding the wifi I am very sorry you found it to be erratic there should have been a sign next to the router saying if you have problems then please unplug it and re plug it in, this will always sort out the problem. I will make sure the sign is visible for future guests.
I am extremely sorry that you felt the need to move indoors in the evenings. In the 10 years of renting the Cortijo we have never had guests felt they needed to do so. The property is situated in 5000 square meters of garden as are the other properties in the area, therefore sitting out in the evenings and enjoying a BBQ and a nice meal with wine has never been a problem. We do ask all guests to please be considerate to other properties owners around to keep the noise to a respectable level.
I would totally agree that anyone thinking of staying at the Cortijo would need a car. Regarding the en suite we can certainly look into fitting a blind on the windows I am very sorry if it impacted on your sleep.
A wonderful getaway
A fabulous property in a fabulous location. Less than an hour from the airport, close to great beaches , stunning mountains and traditional white-washed villages. Perfect for exploring or just chilling.
Wonderful Cortijo in a fantastic setting
This is a wonderful place for a group or family to stay. The owner was helpful and the informations provided made the entire process straightforward. The house itself is fantastic, and in a great setting. You are close to some picturesque villages and towns as well as some nice beach resorts. Excellent place for hill/ trail runners to explore, especially the Sierra Blanca. Beware the gravel roads over some of the hill/ mountain passes (might influence excess cover for hire of a car!). There are usually ‘long ways around’ that are actually just as quick with better quality roads.
The pool area is great with plenty of space to relax and swim. Private setting.
Highly recommended for a stay!
Gorgeous house in an amazing location
Me and my family stayed for a week in April and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The place is in a great location for visiting Malaga and Granada but we spent most of our time by the pool making the most of the facilities and view.
Lake Vinuela is one of Andalucia’s best kept secrets but is unspoilt by tourism. The Lake is a reservoir and is also used for sailing, wind-surfing and fishing. There are no motorised boats allowed thus ensuring tranquillity. There are two excellent 18 hole golf courses nearby, Bavaria Golf (15mins away) and Club Anorets (25 mins away). You may also enjoy skiing in the Sierra Nevada in the winter season which is only 1.45 hrs drive away.
The nearest beach resort is the typically Spanish resort of Torre de Mar just over 15 mins away. A wide promenade runs alongside its sandy beaches to the marina at Caleta. There are many small beaches along the coast line towards the busier resort of Nerja to enjoy. Nerja, with its famous caves, is 25 minutes away. Make a day of it and stop and have a paella or fresh fish lunch in the typical “chiringitos” or beach huts.
