This villa is amazing. Both location as well as amenities impress. We have now spent the third year in Andalucia our summer vacation and always selected detached houses for a family holiday. Even our sons (18y, 15y) have not regretted their decision to take a holiday together with their parents again. Here you can enjoy absolute peace, breakfast extensively on the covered terrace and look out over the pool across the lake Vinuela (the shimmers depending on the time of day in different colors). A professional gas grill (easy to use) makes lust for grilling, a nice detail is the extra freezer combination on the terrace, which offers quick access to refreshments. But the huge double door freezer in the kitchen (like in American movies known) offers generous space. A car is required in every case, and we have very used. Destinations such as Malaga, Nerja, Competa can be reached within an hour, but we made ??ourselves on the way to Granada, Ronda and Gibraltar, no problem - there is holiday time and it was always worth the trip. Thanks again to the friendly hosts Chris and Claire for this great holiday destination, its nice style and her constant willingness to make their guests as comfortable as possible. We can really recommend this villa! Thanks again to Chris & Claire Ulmar, Sylva & the boys

5 stars are not enough

  • 5 of 5

We have just com back from a wonderful week at Villa Estrella. What can you say that does not endorse all the lovely comments made by guests about this Villa. It is excellent in all ways with lovely quality furnishings and a gorgeous pool. We loved the fabulous vista view all around the Villa and we made full use of the pool (in a very hot week), table tennis and cycling on the proms. Chris and Claire are very welcoming hosts and have everything just right. Hope all other guests have as good a time as we did. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

Superb Villa Overlooking Lake Vinuela

  • 5 of 5

This really is a well-equipped villa, with every conceivable item of kitchen appliance, crockery, pots, pans and utensils. The villa is situated in a commanding position over Lake Vinuela, with ample seating and dining areas around a good sized pool. There is a full sized gas bbq and table tennis table, which was the scene of some competitive tournaments! We were really surprised to be able to watch the Olympics, due to the impressive satellite TV system. The villa offers AC in the main bedroom and fans in the two downstairs bedrooms. In addition to good quality bathroom towels, beach towels were also supplied. There is an excellent restaurant 5 mins by car that serves the most superb fillet steaks! The village also has two small convenience stores, and there is a shopping mall with a large supermarket just a 20 minute drive away. Accessible to Marbella, Malaga and the closer towns of Torre Del Mar, Torrox & Nerja.

Chris and Claire could not have been more helpful on arrival and any queries, even advising on an English-speaking pharmacy, for our daughter.

A wonderful stay in an excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the villa for one week and had a fantastic relaxing time. Chris and Claire are very welcoming and are always on hand if you have any queries. The villa is very well presented and definitely has the wow factor when you enter it. As other reviews have said it is home from home and the facilities are great. The pool and views are tremendous and there are plenty of places to sit and relax. You can easily spend all day round the pool taking in the views of the lake and surrounding hills. We have already booked up for a return visit next year as we liked it so much. Thank you for such a wonderful week. Lesley, Colin and family

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The views from the garden overlooking the lake with only the distant clanging of goat bells as the shepherd herds his flock up the mountain each evening is as near as I think you will get to paradise!!

The pictures on the website do not do this place justice, and Chris and Claire have thought of everything and were extremely helpful in providing local knowledge of events and places to visit.

Having had similar holidays in 5 of the last 8 years, I am certain you will struggle to find anything on a par.

Ideal for a relaxing away from it all holiday.

The caves and the town of Nerja are a must, along with a road trip to Granada through the Sierra Nevada, the old town of Malaga and all the quaint local villages with a wonderful selection of restaurants, all very friendly.

The pool and also a trip to Aqualand, Toremollinos were a big hit with our three girls (16,14, 10).

Owner's Response: " Thank you for a wonderful review " 😀 We are so happy that you all enjoyed the villa and the position, which many guests express the view is amazing. Many guests have said the PHOTOS DON'T DO IT JUSTICE, we can agree with that but then again on arrival it gives the WOW factor. So pleased you all enjoyed your day trips out to many attractions not far to travel by car, and explore the culture and area. Thank you all and hope to see you in the near future. Kind regards, Chris & Claire 👫

Location

From the Owner

The position is outstanding (the pictures don't capture all what is on view once you arrive on the drive. Its amazing as we have been told by all who arrives. The villa is immaculate as we set high standards and want our guests to be happy on first impression. We have set the villa up for guests to have all what they need to enjoy there stay, we like to feel you can relax from day one at the villa with family and friends. There are many places to see and tasty restaurants to explore in the area or you might just want to stay and eat at the villa and use all the facilities we have to offer. We have had full experience on running of holiday rental and want our guests to return in the future. The Axarquia, the area in which the villa lies is east of Malaga with it´s sub tropical temperatures, is known for the best climate in europe the area stretches east of Malaga to the east of Nerja ,the area has been forgotten for many years and is unspoilt and natural ,the mountain scenary is unforgettable with it´s blossoms from January, your still able to see Eagles soaring in the skies, and shepards with there sheep . and from the white villages in the mountains to the beaches on the coast , the Axarquia can offer the holiday maker a fantastic view of the Spanish culture with it´s many fiestas ,and local food and drinks ,our local village of Los Romanos , has it´s own olive oil press, where you can buy direct your olive oil. Viewing the lake from car on way to villa you will be captured by the jewel of the area. Once at the villa and entering inside the location will make you feel relax and enjoy a wonderful holiday. Chris and Claire have many years with clients renting in the area and express that your stay is enjoyable, comfortable for a happy holiday.

Outstanding natural beauty with panoramic views of the mountains and Lake (the jewell of the region).The villa sits overlooking Lake Vinuela and is one of Andalucía's best kept secret but is unspoilt by tourism. The lake is a reservoir and is used for non motorized sports ensuring tranquillity. La Vinuela ( nearest supermarket and bank -ATM) village 5 min by car puente don manuel, 10 min drive (hosts a small selection of bars,restaurants,butchers and 2 English shops),5 min Los Romanes (excellent restaurant with views)15 min Alcaucin (small bank -atm)Alcaucin is the best area for walkers,joggers and nature lovers it provides access to the Tejeda National park below the great mountain of La Maroma, with tracks winding through pine woods, mountains valleys with outstanding scenery. There are other graded walks in the area,15-20min. Velez Malaga a typical Spanish busy town where lots of fruit growers tend there harvest to export, and has history to explore. the joining town of Torre Del Mar (nearest beach,water park and large shopping mall) has a wide promenade which runs alongside and will take you to the fishing port and marina of caleta, this is approx 3 kil walk. There are many small beaches along the way to the famous town of Nerja 20 mins from Torre Del Mar, this is a very pretty town with narrow streets to explore and stroll or sit at the Balcon De Europe and watch the world go by. The beach at Buriana to enjoy the sun, with the Nerja caves a MUST to see and many beaches featuring beach side restaurants/bars and water sports including scuba diving.

Malaga with many interests and 90 min to Granada and the Alhambra Palace and skiing/sledging in the winter months. There are 2 excellent 18 hole courses nearby Baveria Torre Del Mar 20 min or Anoreta Rincon De La Victoria 30 min. Horse riding is available 20 min. also you can soak away in the springs at Alhamba De Granada 45 min.

Also in the summer season all the local villages/towns have there own fiesta/celebrations for all to enjoy. They run nearly every weekend from Friday to sunday and entertain with music, dance, foam party, and drink and be happy.

There are also the Romeria's where the people of the area come riding there horses and dress in the Spanish way, with many following by foot with carts they dress to carry the free food and drink, a splendid way of joining the village celebrations.

Many more celebrations go on through out the year in local areas as they celebrate the olive oil, vegtables and fruit a custom for many years. This is where the Spanish families all come together. In August is a very big feria in Malaga where thousands come to join the celebrations, and at Christmas time a beautiful display of lights and nativity.

There are many other celebrations through out the year.
