Not easy to describe how wonderful...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mariposa villa with friends and we liked it a lot! The fantastic views from the terrace, the jacuzzi, the pool, the well equipped kitchen, the quiet location, the possibility to do some walking...

One of our friends was not feeling well and had some fever. So she was obliged to rest and it is so true what she said, "this was the best place to rest and recover!"

We promised each other to come back there and we all hope this would be possible.

The contact with the owners was very good and we always got an answer within a very short time.

After our stay there we moved to the region of Marbella, but in fact every one of us wanted to stay at Mariposa.

Great, well equipped villa, stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great, truly spacious villa equipped and furnished to a very high standard. There was every kitchen tool imaginable and the HD UK TV allowed us to follow the UEFA Euro 2016 finals! Bedrooms very comfortable and an outdoor eating area with breath taking views of the valley. The pool was fantastic to cool off after a day sightseeing and there was plenty of room in the driveway to turn our car around (unlike some Andalusian villas we've stayed in). There's a steep road up to the villa but don't let this put you off as many villas in this area are like this. Steve was very helpful and responded very quickly to any issues. I have to say the WiFi internet was the best we've every had in Spain; fast speed and the connection is very stable and didn't drop once during our stay - essential for our teenagers! I would highly recommend this villa for families who want a peaceful, comfortable stay in a rural surrounding with exquisite views of the countryside.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described in the details and when we arrived it was spotlessly clean. The couple who look after the property were there to meet us and visited several times during our stay to change the beds, water the plants and clean the pool. From the moment we placed our booking Steve's communication was excellent. The villa is set amongst stunning scenery with the local town just 1km away. Alora and Antequera are about half an hour's drive away and both have supermarkets with more choice than the local ones. El Chorro is a 40 minute drive but well worth it as a stop-off en route to the lakes at Ardales. You can take a picnic and spend a day at the lakes which has shaded areas and beaches. This is a quieter alternative to the coast. If you are more adventurous then you can take a tandem flight with a local company who are paragliding specialists. We found that the villa had everything we wanted for a relaxing holiday, within easy reach of places to visit and amenities, but very quiet and peaceful. We would highly recommend this property.

Away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Finca La Mariposa. We arrived late at night, and Steve was more than happy to pour us a drink and welcome us. When we opened our fridge, there was a great welcome pack so we didn't have to rush to the shop in the morning. The accomodation was ample for our needs and very well equipped. We were able to use the bar with our own tipples or help ourselves to Steve's MEGA selection with an honesty bar - perfect. Towels, both for the pool and the bathroom, were provided. Lilos, inflatables, balls etc were all at hand to use at our leisure. Jacuzzi made it for us in the evenings - for this reason, i feel a February holiday coming on! One tip - make sure you hire a car with a bit of umphh (unless you like wheel spinning up the track and into the gate like we had to with our silly little Hyundai!! lol)

Owner's Response: This review has caused some confusion, Karen and Steve would like to point out that in 2013 there was an apartment within the Villa, which is why Steve was there to welcome this couple. The apartment has now been removed and the property is now a detached 3 bed Villa as per our advertisement. The poolside bar referred to is still there, however drinks are to be provided by guests themselves. The track has now been mainly concreted making access much easier.

Location

From the Owner

Stand on one of the patios here at Finca La Mariposa and it will become obvious why we purchased this plot of land. The views are, lets just say pretty impressive. Back in 2004 during our extensive travels of Inland Andalucia, we just happened to drive through this little Spanish village quite a few times on our property search. We happened upon this half an acre plot with planning permission to build a home, quite a rarity. We designed The house and its apartment ourselves and 1 year(ish) later we moved in. We absolutely love this area with its quaint little white villages and its impressive richness of places to visit, El Torcal and El Chorro both only a stones throw away. Abdalajis is the Parapente capital of Spain, sit here and watch them throw themselves off the Mountain.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

We are located about 45kms from a selection of beaches either side of Malaga. As an alternative try the nearby lakes of Ardales, located in pine forests where you can swim in the natural water deposits, collected from the nearby mountain ranges.

Travel:

Malaga airport is about 45 mins drive away. Granada airport 60 mins away, but very quiet. car hire is required, we recommend carjet.com.

Distances:

1km from centre of Valle De Abdalajis. Antequera is a ½hr drive away through beautiful countryside. Seville 1½ hr drive. Granada 1 hr drive, Malaga ¾hr drive. Other places of interest: El Chorro, El Torcal and the Ardales Lakes the Lakes of Vinuela and Fuerta De Piedra are all within a short drive.

Further Details:

A selection of bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets, post office, banks and a chemist are all located within the village. Finca La Mariposa is set just 1km from the village centre, where you can walk up above the house and enjoy the views and total tranquility on offer. This area is awash with colour and is a photographer/painters paradise. 'Twitchers' will relish in the abundance of birdlife, from Bee-Eaters to Griffon Vultures with the occasional passing Parakeet.

Facilities

From the Owner

Finca La Mariposa is conveniently located, within an hour of the Airport at Malaga, away from all the hustle and bustle of the packed coast, yet within easy reach of places to visit like Seville, Granada, Antequera, Cordoba, and of course a trip to the coast. Our apartment is well equipped, with its A/con, full size English beds and luxury bedding, fully equipped kitchen for those keen to cook, and of course your own private patio and BBQ area, nip outside and catch a quick dip in the pool or a relax in the large jacuzzi. Walk along the tracks connected to the property or laze on one of the terraces with a tipple from the poolside bar the choices are endless, either way, we hope you will appreciate our tranquil location, and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do every time we return.
