Summer at its best.

  • 5 of 5

If the intention of your holiday is to relax, have sumptuous views, have all the facilities at hand, and to enjoy the best of your chosen location, then this should be for you. Yes, getting there is challenging, but the trade off is what you find at the end.

The villas position overlooks the valley interspersed with other farms and residences. There are no passing vehicles, no plane noise, just peace and the chance to enjoy the pool, the quiet spots, take in the exotic and well thought out garden, (avoid the cactus though, they bite back!!). We spent nearly every night eating on the veranda, watching the incredible sunsets, in pure silence...

The villa caters for all your needs, for the youngsters, excellent internet, great pool, loads of additional entertainment to suit.

Easy to book, excellent communication, and thanks to Paul & Lizzie for what they do best.

Try sitting by the pool looking out at the hills, and the flickering lights, just as the sun is setting, glass in hand, lost in your own thoughts.......priceless.

Stunning location, beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this villa and have stayed 4 years in a row! If you appreciate beautiful countryside in a slightly remote area then this villa is for you. The views both to the mountains one way and the sea the other way are breathtaking and if you take one of the villa's recommended walks the views just get better. We love this location although the drive up from the main road can appear a little hairy at first!

The villa is the best equipped property we have ever stayed at and the agents and owners keep it very clean and well maintained. The neighbours are very friendly and we have shared a few beers with them one evening too !

The pool area is really nice with plenty of loungers and umbrellas. There is also a roof top bathing area which is private and secluded.

The closest beaches are Burriana and Torrox which are both about 15-20 minutes drive.

I can't recommend this villa and area highly enough !

Great place to chill out

  • 5 of 5

Just like to say we had a great time, the 2 weeks passed so quickly. Lovely pool area, with plenty of sunbeds & a couple of big parasols.

The kitchen has all you could need (large saucepan would be a good addition) with plenty of cutlery & plates/bowls.

The lounge/dining area are very nice & on the 1 day that Morocco sent some hot wind over, it was great to be able to stay cool.

Lots of things to see & do in the area & a visit to benajarafe for the best fish restaurants I have been in, set right on the beach front.

Only word of wanring would be the same as some of the other reviews & that is that if you are a nervous driver, the 1st time up the track can be daunting, but after that it seems fine.

Will be returning that's for sure

Thanks to Paul for sorting out the tv so the ladies could watch the tennis

All the best

Tracy, Sandra, Les,Pete

Fabulous Villa!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect villa in a perfect location. Yes you need a car as you couldn't walk to and from this villa but it is absolutely worth it to have a villa and pool that have everything you want. You also have the added bonus of the flexibility of booking the studio apartment if adult children are able to join you.

We've holidayed as a family in the Torrox/Frigiliana area for the last 6-7 years and absolutely love the area and we loved Casa Joya so much that we've already booked for next summer and I don't think you'll get a better endorsement than that.

Peace and Quiet in Beautiful Surroudings

  • 5 of 5

Casa Joya is a lovely place to truly relax and recharge your batteries. Only 5 minutes from the quaint village of Torrox Pueblo and you are in a haven of tranquility. I stayed here with my elderly mum who although not wheelchair bound has severe walking disabilities. Casa Joya provided all and more of the best facilities I have come across in Spain. 10 minutes from the coast and 20 minutes from the lively resort of Nerja, if you want a lovely relaxing holiday with breathtaking views of both the sea and the mountains, then why look anywhere else.

Very Impressive Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful Villa in a superb location spectacular views in all directions towards the mountains and the sea. Everything was provided in the Villa that you could possibly want. Spotlessly clean and very homely. The pool was very large and again was kept spotlessly clean, fantastic for keeping cool when spending the day lazing by the pool or just jumping into at the end of a long day sightseeing. The journey to the villa the first time was a bit scary as it is quite hilly but after a couple trips it soon became quite normal and so worth it once there for the complete peace and tranquility. The Villa is only 5 minutes drive or so outside of Torrox Pueblo which is the most picturesque whitewashed village set into the mountains with wonderful shops, bars and restaurants which if you are feeling energetic you could walk to. I would definitely recommend this Villa to anyone. Thank you to Joy & Tony for the hire of the Villa and also thank you to Lizzie and Paul the agents who kept the villa up to the excellent standard and were also most helpful.

From the Owner

We bought Casa Joya in 2004 & although the house was much more basic when we bought it with no drive, pool or terraces we fell in love with the location & spectacular views & knew that we could make it into a beautiful home so we have made many improvements. . Believe it or not it was already named (almost) after me as the man who sold it to us had a nickname of Antonio Joya! We have travelled a lot around Spain & can't find anywhere that gives us everything we want like the Torrox area can. We have beautiful views, peace & quiet but with the lively tourist resorts only a few minutes away. We can walk the lovely hillsides or the beaches & promenades. We love it & hope you will too!
