About the property

Spacious 5 bedroom/bathroom Luxury Villa with Large Pool and Gardens

Welcome to Casa El Obispo. This luxurious, fully air conditioned/ heated villa is well equipped with everything that you will need for an unforgettable vacation. The villa is set in a tranquil location very close to the National Park in Alcaucin and offers extensive gardens (over an acre) with plenty of space to relax and unwind. It has a superb large heated pool (11m x 5m) which incorporates large entry steps on which children can play and paddle. The adjoining terrace offers high quality sun-loungers, seating and three tropical sunshades. The villa comprises of 5 large bedrooms (sleeps 12) with adjoining en-suites. The large fully fitted kitchen provides you every modern convenience including an American fridge-freezer and wine-cooler. The breakfast area has seating for 8 and includes a large flat screened TV with satellite channels offering a full package including sports and movies. WIFI is also provided at the villa - just bring your laptop or tablet.

There is a spacious lounge offering extensive seating for 10+ - additional large wide screen TV with freeview and a DVD player. This room provides floor to ceiling windows offering direct access to the outside terrace and affords views across the gardens and pool area. There is also another dining area which provides a more formal setting for dinner. An IPOD docking station is also situated in the lounge.

The extensive covered terrace (14m x 4m) provides guests with an idyllic location to dine 'Al Fresco' and offers superb views of the surrounding hillside and valleys. There is an oversized typically Spanish dining table with seating for 8. To complete the picture there is a large built BBQ adjacent to the terrace.

For the more sporty guests, we have included a top of the range table tennis for use during their vacation.

Please note that there is also a separate downstairs WC and separate utility room.

The villa is suitable for all year round rentals and is particularly good for walkers and hikers in the cooler months as the National Park is approximately 5 minutes drive from the villa.

Throughout the winter months enjoy the heated luxury jacuzzi/hot tub fitted with massage jets and led lighting, combined with the heated pool, great entertainment for the whole family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a little note to say 'Thank You' for letting us hire your beautiful villa. We have had a lovely ten days, even with five month old twins! We have thoroughly enjoyed all the immaculate facilities here and can see all the time and effort that you have put into this property to make a 'home from home'. We have all enjoyed wonderful days in the pool/slide, and all the help and advice you have personally provided. We hope to make a return visit one day - once again, many thanks.

A beautiful villa in a wonderful mountain location

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant week with the family in this secluded villa which is a close enough drive to bars and restaurants in Alcaucin and Vinuela. Kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Many thanks to Dennis for his welcome and all of his help during our stay. Would definitely recommend and book again!!!

The Villa was stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week here and would highly recommend it. The villa was gorgeous and very clean. The pool was great too, the slide was a big hit with my 6 year old daughter - she spent most of the week in the pool! The views from the villa are very good and if you drive to the local village you can continue onto the National Park where there are fantastic walks - we had a great time there. There is a big supermarket only 20 mins away which is a bonus. All in we had a great week and will definitely return!

Just back from a wonderful return visit

  • 5 of 5

El Obispo is a wonderful villa, with the most incredible views, relaxing atmosphere and luxurious yet comfortable interiors.

Spacious inside and out, with everything you could possibly need whilst you are away thoughtfully provided.

The villa welcomes you, as does Dennis - who will pop by with a smile and a chat to make sure everything's okay.... which of course it always is.. more than okay in fact. A piece of heaven in the Andalusian mountains.

Very good villa and great service!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Sunday when all the shops are closed, but they had already stacked our fridge with what we needed for the day. Surprising and such a great treat as we have rented several times in the same area and never had this experience. The house works great and has a very nice outside area. Child friendly backyard. Another good thing is that the pool is heated - good for Spring and Autumn. The jacuzzi is another plus. There are 4 great bedrooms. Our group used 3 of them and were all very happy.

We were very happy with our stay and the service of Dennis and Karen.

What a perfect place to celebrate a 60th birthday

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful villa to stay in with our family group of 10. It is furnished to a high standard, with a well equipped kitchen for all your needs. The five bedrooms are of a very good size, as were the en suites. Plenty of areas around the villa to sunbath or just to sit and relax. The pool, slide, jacuzzi, table tennis and swing ball gave lots of entertainment for everyone.

The Stunning panoramic views are to die for, waking up to them every morning to these is like a dream come true.

On a overcast day, you can just jump in the car, drive 30 minutes or more and be in sunshine again, with more beautiful views and tranquillity.

We had a few keen road cyclists in our group, they found the climbs and descends brilliant, easy to plan routes, and the hiring of the bikes straight forward. So if your a cyclist, it's the place and area to come.

There are many lovely typically Spanish restaurants with good food to choose from around the area.

Dennis was so helpful and friendly, defiantly an asset to the villa, and Karen's communication was excellent.

We would recommend a stay in this villa, and are sure you will agree with our review 100%

Fantastic family retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to recharge your batteries away from the crowds of city life then this is for you, a beautiful villa in the wonderful mountains of Malaga. We were 2 families with 5 children and there was plenty of space. The kids loved the pool and the slide, and the adults loved the hot tub. The place is completely secluded and families can completely relax. The owners are fantastic and very accommodating. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone, thank you for your hospitality.
