Property description

Villa Estrella Fugaz is a country property and a wonderful retreat from today´s hectic world set in a peaceful location surrounded by olive groves and fruit orchards. The panoramic views are extraordinary and the sunsets out of this world. And as the name, Shooting Stars, suggests, the night skies are crystal clear. Ideal for the perfect get-away-from-it-all holiday. It´s wonderfully positioned just 20 mins from the palm fringed beaches and ‘hidden’ coves of Almuñécar, Salobreña and La Herradura. Enjoy a harbour side meal at the pretty Marina Del Este with its variety of quality waterside restaurants. The Costa Tropical remains one of Spain´s best kept secrets. This is an excellent base for exploring the rugged coastline of the Costa Tropical and the mountainous hinterland.

The famous 5 million years old Nerja Caves are 40 minutes away, a must see is the centre column in the Sala del Cataclismo (Cataclysm Hall) which reaches a height of 32 metres.

Guest comments

A huge thank you to all our guests, we've enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you again in the future.

What a stunning location, just literally panoramic views right from
the Med to our own mountain peak! Very peaceful and the kids loved
it, most of the time spent in the pool! DC, London

We really enjoyed the location and the tranquillity. We got a feeling
that we were in the heart of Andalucia, surrounded by olive and avocado
trees - just amazing. SR, Leeds
