Space 1,829 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

4 Bed, 3 Bath, 4 Roof Terraces, Private Pool with wonderful 360 views

Welcome to our holiday home La Peruela.

So called as it is right on the boarder of the Periana and Vinuela provinces. Positioned on a rocky promontory it is the last house on a no through track and has fabulous 360 degree views of fields, olive groves, valleys, lakes and the Sierra Nevaha mountains beyond. This really is a very special place and ideal for those who want to get away from the standard without stepping right off the edge. Surrounded by rocks and trees it’s a mecca for birds and there’s nothing like sitting on the roof terrace in the evening watching hundreds of birds swooping around you.

With over 300 degrees of uninterrupted views you get the feeling of being in the sticks while still having the security of several English speaking neighbours behind you.

Please note: We also rent it out as a 2 and 3 bed villa for slightly discounted rate from September to May. We do this by locking off one or two bedrooms and making savings on cleaning and laundry. (Please see our other listings if this is of interest)

La Peruela is perfect for the following:

2 x Families of 4 to share a villa

1 x Large Family with help

People who want to chill out , enjoy nature and relax

Walkers,mountainbikers, bird watchers and photographers

Yoga Retreats

It is not perfect for:

Party People

People who want everything on the doorstep

People who don't have their own transport / hire car


4 Double Bedrooms.

Each floor has it’s own Master with Ensuite and kingsize bed and a second twin bedroom, ideal for children or another couple if you put the beds together

3 Bathrooms

2 Ensuite and one family bathroom with bath.

Large first floor Dining Room with a solid wood table for 8 and a terrace of to the front and back

Modern Kitchen, also on the first floor with Halogen Hob, Fan assisted oven and grill, washing machine, microwave and combi oven, double sink and marble work tops.

Very large ground floor living room with horse shoe seating for at least 10 people around a large smart television and wood burning stove. The other end of the room can be left open or you can unfold a full size table tennis table or 6ft pool / snooker table for hours of entertainment.

Private Pool Area with a 7.5m by 4.5m above ground pool which is great for a cooling dip and even a bit of a swim. Being 1.3 metres deep it’s also more child friendly that normal sunken pools as it’s very hard for a young child to climb in, especially if you remove the ladder. The end of the pool looks over the fields towards the mountains and it’s a wonderful place to relax.

4 x terraces

Large roof terrace with 360 degree views, perfect for a sun downer and a wonderful place to do yoga or just soak up the sun.

Extremely Large (16m +) Rear Roof Terrace which makes a great safe play area for children to play close to the house and an alternative place to put a dining table should you not fancy the front dining terrace.

Dining Room Terrace

Straight off the dining room and next to the kitchen

Master Bedroom Terrace

Overlooking the pool it gets the morning sun and is a wonderful place to enjoy your morning coffee.

2 x Porches

One off the Living Room with a Hammock and the other poolside off the Downstairs Master Bed.

Parking for 5 + Cars

About Tobyn

We're a family of 4 and work in the Glamping Industry. I sell wonderful Bell Tents through Bell Tent UK and also run a large Bell Tent rental company called Hotel Bell Tent which means we get to go to loads music festivals and do loads of classy camping. We live in SW London and have just taken over my parents holiday home in the countryside of Southern Spain. As we're flat out with work throughout the summer and can only go to the house on half terms and Easter and Christmas holidays we have decided to let other people enjoy our house when we're not there.

Tobyn purchased this villa in 2004

Why Tobyn chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

Location, Location, Location.

La Peruela is in a wonderful spot and being the last house down a no through track you feel like your on the edge of civilisation without stepping off.

You have wonderful uninterrupted views that include everything from olive groves to rolling fields, Lake Vinuela and the mountains beyond.

The house itself is very spacious with 4 proper double bedrooms, a very substantial first floor dining room with modern kitchen off it and an even larger living room with large TV and U shaped seating and the option of snooker / pool or table tennis.

What makes this villa unique

The house was built around a decade ago and was originally designed as two flats before it was knocked through into a two story house. The upshot of this is lots of space, two bedrooms on each floor (making it perfect for two families to share) and four terraces meaning you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to sitting out.

The house has sat empty for the last seven years and has now been totally redecorated and updated so it’s clean and fresh with loads of quality imported furniture so it really feels like a home from home.

Great location with beautiful views.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday. The house was comfortable for the 9 of us. Fortunately we were able to fix the pool, which had a leak, so we were able to have a great time in the water too! The property is great for the price we paid. The description on the website was really accurate and we were not disappointed at all. The house was clean and we had great contact with the owner who really quickly answered a couple of questions we had. I would recommend this property. We ate out at a restaurant in Los Romanos called El Charco and the food was good with a local touch and view was spectacular.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing holiday we have just had. The description and directions were very accurate. The villa is lovely, spacious and extremely comfortable, it has everything you need and can accommodate up to 10 people. Everything in the villa is clean and well looked after. There is WIFI, TV and films available. Downstairs has a pool table and table tennis table. The views are breath taking, especially from the roof. There are plenty of outside areas to sit and dine, we used the roof most evenings. The area is great for walking and plenty of wildlife to see (we saw a booted eagle)

There are lots of local villages and towns within a short drive to visit and explore. We especially liked La Vinuela, Riogordo and Alcaucin.

The nearest beach Torre Del Mar is only about 30 minutes away which has a large assortment of shops, restaurants etc.

Other places we visited were Alhambra in Granada (you have to pre book) its absolutely stunning. Ronda is well worth seeing, it has the most spectacular views. Also Nerja and Friglianna are vibrant places to visit.

Tobyn was extremely helpful from the first enquiry. The detailed literature was very informative.

We would definitely recommend this villa and hopefully be able to return in the future

Amazing Views!

  • 4 of 5

Excellent family villa with all you need to get away from it all. Its down the end of a little track nestled amongst the hills where there are loads of olive groves. The view is stunning across the lake with the Sierra Nevada in the distance.

A short drive to the supermarkets on the edge of Malaga, which is a very nice town with lots of art galleries and cafes, (Pablo Picasso was born here!), and along the coast there's loads of excellent beaches, (Nerja being our favourite). Nearby there are the amazing caves of Nerja, the largest limestone cave system in Europe which is an absolute must-see!

The villa was well prepared and tidy and loads of patios and balconies.. Will definitely come back!

Amazing Place!

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful time, the villa is amazing, with wonderful views and well placed for visiting all the beautiful mountain-top villages in the region. It's only a short rod trip down to the coast where the beaches at Nerja were great fun for the family with amazing Paella in the beach bars was fabulous. We had a great day out one rainy day in the Caves of Nerja which were cathedral -like and beautiful.

The house was clean and tidy and amazing views from all rooms. Definitely will come back!

Beautifully serene oasiin breathtaking environment

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I decided tho make the booking it felt right. Tobyn was incredibly helpful and even on arrival i was met by a super helpful representative to make sure everything was ok.

The villa was stunning, inside and out it exceeded my expectations and hopes by a mile.

The interior was spacious, cool and beautifully decorated. The perfect mix of traditional design with all modern comforts. Outside the house was just amazing. From cool evening drinks on the rooftops to hot days baking next to the pool, i couldn't find fault.

It is near a beautiful beach and seaside town, or quiet lakes for walks, and in the next village a bakery turns out delicious home cooked loaves.

I would recommend it to everyone. Wether you are a single escapest, a couple or a lively family this place has it all.

A healthy 5 stars
