    "2 weeks of peace"

    We have just come back from a most relaxing 2week holiday from Casa Katrina, everything that we had been looking for in a holiday no hussle and bussle from a busy tourist town just the 4 of us and a villa and pool in the mountains. If you are looking not do do much on holiday except relax then this villa and surroundings are the perfect place to be. We will be recommending this villa to our friends and hopefully be able to come back and stay again. Steve who runs the villa was so helpful always at the end of an email if needed for anything and to give advice on places to go which when you are in a strange country is just what you need.

    "My ultimate chill-out"

    I have taken many villa holidays across Europe over the years. This was my third holiday at Casa Katrina having also visited the previous two years. This villa ticks the boxes for me for the following reasons: Under an hour away from Malaga airport Spacious and comfortable accommodation Rural location high up in the hills Very peaceful and off the beaten track - perfect to unwind and chill out Great pool Spectacular panoramic views This is also an excellent base to explore the region - although it is so pleasant we didn't venture far. I do think that this is a special property and location - so stock up on some good books, tasty food and sun lotion and you won't go far wrong. I hope to be back soon!

    About the Owner

    I live in Colchester near my family and where I work. We spend most of our holidays in Spain, where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the country and its culture.
    We love Almachar because of the wonderful weather and fantastic views and lifestyle. There are some beautiful beaches just 12 minutes drive away (Rincon de la Victoria and Benajarafe). There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Malaga airport approx 40 minutes drive away. The villa is in such a peaceful location and affords privacy and relaxation. When you have had enough sun and swimming, there is a modern air-conditioned shopping centre just 20 minutes away with a wide variety of shops and Almachar village with it's 12 or so bars and restaurants is just 7kms away

    Year property purchased: 2006

    Why this location?

    We purchased the villa as it suited our needs totally. There are wonderful views of the mountains everywhere and when you have had enough of sunbathing and swimming, there is an abundance of towns and villages (Nerja, Marbella, Mijas etc) to visit within a relatively short driving distance

    What are the unique benefits of the property?

    The 2 km track that leads to the property was upgraded to concrete by the council, 2 years ago. This has much improved access to both the villa and a local beach. The property is maintained by my brother-in-law Steve Harding, who lives only 4 Kms away. He is usually available via the phone and email and responds rapidly for issues / queries / advice regarding either the villa or surrounding area (market days / fiestas / shopping centres etc).
