A Taste of Spanish Luxury - Casa de la Colina

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for something idyllic, luxurious and secluded with all the space needed to chill out - or indeed party - Casa de la Colina has it all. The weather is of course almost guaranteed. What better way to enjoy it then than to soak up the sun on the private patio and then slip in to the generous size pool. And if you're likely to get bored of relaxing.... the shaded table tennis area provides a welcome respite and good excuse for healthy family competition!

The well constructed charcoal barbecue provides the perfect solution to al fresco dining and we enjoyed succulent steaks from the town's butcher just 1 km away. SKY tv and all the audio entertainment one could require is also all to hand and the villa's efficient air conditioning guaranteed a cool night's sleep. Check out the local bars and restaurants too. The Taj indian was very good and the owner most courteous. We partied in the Scirocco bar till the early hours and enjoyed walks around the Lake. Couple all that with the Manager's (Raimondo) attention to detail and passion for excellence we couldn't recomend this place highly enough ! Confused with all the options you're searching through on the web? - stop right here - you've found your dream holiday - Enjoy !

A wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed a perfect week at Casa de Colina. What a fabulous place! The villa was well equipped with everything we needed. The outside space is great and we were lucky with the weather so spent most of the day (and night) outdoors. Beautiful pool, beautiful views, I can highly recommend it.

Amazing views and beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is lovely. We watched the sunset each night over the mountains and it was beautiful - the photos don't do it justice. There is a large mountain to the rear of the villa which is spectacular. It is in a great location (a tiny drive to the local shops and about 20 mins from the beaches and a water park), with the most amazing views. The pool was great and the air conditioning really lovely after a hot day in the sun! The villa had everything we could have wanted - including a great ping pong table - everything you could need in the kitchen and even a friendly gecko or two outside in the evening. It was clean and well maintained. The photos on the website are accurate but the villa was even more beautiful than it looks. Ray was helpful and we really did not want to leave. We got a sense of living in the 'real' spain whilst being near enough to ameneties too. Honestly, the views were wonderful - we spent 2 weeks just watching the beautiful scenery! We would totally recommend this villa.

Fantastic villa, so well equipped that even on the one rainy day, we had plenty to do. Felt so comfortable and clean, so much nicer than some generic villas we have been too before. Will definately be back!!

On the doorstep are quiet tracks to explore through olive groves. For walkers, joggers, bicyclists and nature lovers, it is a short drive to Tejeda National Park with tracks winding through the pine woods.
