About the property

Spacious three bedroom detached villa which sleeps 6 + cot.

The villa is situated on the edge of the quaint village of Archez and is accessed via a concrete driveway through its own private gated entrance. The property has stunning views of Mount Maroma and the National Park, which is less than 10 minuets drive, and across the villages of Archez and Canillas de Albaida, both of which are less than five minutes walk away and have small supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, a good selection of traditional bars and restaurants as well as some wonderful Spanish history and charm such as the 13th century bell tower in Archez.

There are three air conditioned double bedrooms two of which are en-suite. A travel cot is also available on request at no extra charge.. The spacious air conditioned open plan lounge has a light and airy traditional Spanish feel with a contemporary flat screen television and log burner for cosy winter evenings. WiFi is also included. Off the lounge is the first double bedroom with kingsize bed. Also off the lounge is a day room which has a pull out sofa bed. Through the day room is the twin bedroom with en-suite. This bedroom also benefits from its own independant access. Steps from the lounge lead up through a door to the mezzanine master double bedroom which has a dressing area and en-suite wet room. This bedroom also benefits from its own access through French doors to a secluded sun terrace which overlooks the pool and gardens and has far reaching views across Maroma, Archez and Canillas de Albaida. Downstairs, the fully fitted kitchen with double doors leads to the terrace and pool offering an excellent outdoor living space complete with dining area and BBQ. There is also a glazed terrace for year round enjoyment. Malaga airport is approximately 1 hours drive, Granada 1.5 hours and Seville, 2.5 hours. The beautiful beaches are approximately 20 minutes away and two 18 hole golf courses are within easy drive.

About Margaret & Ray Pearce

Living in England.

Margaret & Ray Pearce purchased this villa in 2015

Why Margaret & Ray Pearce chose Árchez

The villa is situated on the edge of a typically Spanish village which has all the amenities needed for a relaxing and peaceful holiday. The local taxi service means that it is not even necessary to hire a car, as here it is a pleasure to stroll to either village to take advantage of the delicious food and wine on offer.

What makes this villa unique

Buena Vista lives up to its name with beautiful views which can be appreciated from the various terraces . The close proximity of The National Park ensures you can take advantage of a variety of walks and appreciate the landscape. Competa is a short drive away with even more choice of shops, restaurants and bars and for those looking for 'retail therapy' the shopping centre of El Engenio is about 20 minutes drive as are the beautiful beaches of the region.

Stunning location, so peaceful

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house, very airy and spacious. Pool was gorgeous with stunning views from the pool area. A lovely breeze kept temperatures comfortable. Visited Competa most days for grocery shopping, coffee and a wander round. Highly recommended.

Beautiful villa with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

Had a very peaceful break in this lovely home. Archez is small and hilly, but had everything we needed. I would say you really need a car to enjoy this area fully.

Stunning location - peaceful & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from 11 incredibly relaxing nights at Casa Buena Vista. Situated in the mountains, the views from this villa are spectacular from the pool, terrace & upstairs bedroom & terrace. A very peaceful area so I recommend a car as it's hilly of course! The supermarkets in both Archez & Canailla de Abedas are ample - the latter selling lovely bread & pastries. Bigger supermarkets available in Competa which is only a 10 minute drive away & very worthwhile visiting - go to the plaza & people watch having a meal or drink! The property is very well kept & had everything we needed. The pool is just fabulous for hot days - and it was very hot during our visit. You won't be disappointed by this place - I'm missing the views so much & we only got back yesterday. The owners are very helpful indeed.

Great villa - spacious with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Buena vista lives up to its name with amazing views accross the mountains. Such a peaceful location yet within easy walking distance of the lovely village of Archez, where you can buy fresh bread and groceries 7 days a week, as well as wondering around the pretty Spanish streets. The villa has the best of both worlds; a relaxed day by the Pool overlooking such a gorgeous landscape feels remote and peaceful, but when the kids got bored there was always an open air market, bazaar, or gelataria nearby to occupy them for an hour. Canillas and competa are less than 5 mins drive away and offer some great friendly restaurants and cafes and atmospheric tavernas. The villa had everything we needed (and we needed a lot being 2 adults, 3 kids and 2 tots) and the owners were really accommodating with any requirements and questions we had. The kitchen was modern and light with doors to the outdoor area for al fresco dining with ease and the sun room was a godsend on hotter days when the children needed a bit of shade while they ate. The shutters and air con made for cool nights and easy sleep and the overall feel of Buena vista was well thought out, very comfortable and above all, incredibly relaxing. A wonderful holiday - we will be sure to return!
