About the property

Self-catering rental now with hot tub on Granada´s Costa Tropical, sleeps 10

This recently build villa is called Bosque Mar. The villa's name reflects the lovely views it offers over a verdant wooded valley to the sea and Moorish castle of Salobrena. The decor is rustic, Spanish style, yet this self catering holiday accommodation offers all of the comforts of a modern luxury villa including wifi. It has 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and a private heated pool which can be enclosed with special fencing to keep young children from entering the pool area without adult supervision. Also, its automatic cover is easy to use and is more efficient to keep the water warm if the pool is heated. There is central hot and cold air conditioning and a large covered porch with an outdoor kitchen and gas barbecue. Your comfort is guaranteed! The villa can sleep up to 10 people so it is perfect for 2 families that want to vacation together.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Marla,

We all had a lovely time. Your villa is lovely not just to the eye, but also a lot of thought has gone into the design & attention to detail, making it not only practical but comfortable & luxurious too.

It was nice to meet you too & thanks for making us feel so welcome.

Hope to see you again.


Dear Marla,

Thank you for a GREAT holiday in your wonderful villa. It looks smaller on the photos on the internet, so we were quite overwhelmed by its space. This was certainly nice with 9 of us!

We really enjoyed your warm welcome with lovely Spanish goodies such as Manchego cheese, wine, and this feeling has stayed with us during our entire stay. We loved the heated swimming pool and the lounge chairs.

A very nice holiday it was!

The house is amazing!!! We loved staying there has everything you need. We had our two year old with us and the house was perfect. Location is great you can easily get to the shops within 5 min in the car. The beachfront is lovely and has great places to eat. The management company are so helpful and just down the road if you need any help. We can't wait to book with them again and go back!

Superb Villa in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We've recently returned from a family holiday at this wonderful villa. As soon as we arrived we were completely blown away by it. Every attention to details has been thought of. Spotlessly clean, very modern and superbly furnished and decorated. Cumbre Rentals who look after this villa and many more were so professional and so helpful from my first enquiry right through until after we returned. You do have your heart in your mouth a little as you wind up the very steep hill to reach the villa but you soon get used to it and the climb is very worthwhile to enjoy the beautiful views out to the ocean. I would have no hesitation to recommend this villa and certainly look forward to returning again.

Winter break that seemed like summer.

  • 5 of 5

Everything as we would want for a quiet break, but with access to things to see and do. We were very happy with the service and the villa and our choice of the area - castles and forts, restaurants and shopping, views and sun - even in winter! The villa was clean, well-equipped and serviced - pool was good even in winter (with heating) and the hot tub was tops. Plenty of space, amenities and extras. We would recommend this to anyone who doesn't want hotel crowds and who is prepared to make their own itinerary and find their own path - and there's lots to see and do in Salobrena and Costa Tropical - Granada is a 'must see', the caves at Nerja, the castle/fort at Almuneca and much more. Plenty of choices for restaurants in Salobrena, without having to travel afar. All-in-all, well worth the visit and we'll be back again - and, we'll stay in one of the Cumbre Villas - they suit us to the point.

Villa Bosque Mar

  • 5 of 5

Our 4:th visit in Salobreña and CumbreVillas and surtainly not the last one! This time with 2 adults, 3 children (8,14 & 16 years old) and grandfather (80 years young!) Villa Bosque Mar was perfect for us: grandfather had a bedroom & bath of his own. The heated pool was in freequent use! A nice welcome-package waited us when we arrived, wow! Our family has three "musts" when we visit Salobreña: 1.roasted chicken (from the take-away in town of Salobreña) 2. dinner at Piedra ala Carne (you grill your own meat on hot stones) 3. eating at Abiznaga (very good service). This time we also visited Alhambra with a private guide, wich we recommend. The SantaSemana-procession at Eastern is worth being a part of! We warmly recommend CumbreVillas and Salobreña for a nice and relaxing vacation!

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

May 2011 visit.

The comfort and luxury of this villa could be the reason we have returned 5 times. The pool is larger than most. The spaciousness of the villa second to none. At least 5 restaurants which we feel we must visit when we are there are within 20 minutes drive. The Cumbre Villas team are very professional and more than all the necessities are left in the villa. We shall return!

Car: necessary

The villa is located in an established residential community that occupies a hillside that overlooks the town of Salobrena, the sea and the mountains. The views from here are just spectacular. The community is very peaceful and ideally situated as the beach, restaurants and shops are only 5 minutes away in car. Within walking distance from the villa is a community recreational area that has a large pool, a children´s pool, a tennis court, table tennis, a football pitch and a basket ball. Our guests have unlimited free use of the facilities.

Salobrena is a great base to explore the various nearby quaint coastal towns , the historic city of Granada with the Alhambra Palace, which is a must see, and the mountain villages of the Alpujarras. The Sierran Nevada mountains are less than 75 minutes away. It is possible to ski from December through April. In the summer and autumn it is a great place to go for walks and to explore.

Other Activities: You can ski in the Sierra Nevada mountains from December through April. The slopes are only 75 minutes away.
