About Angela

My husband and I moved to this beautiful region 16 years ago...and are still singing its praises! Our children were born here and have totally embraced the Spanish way of life and language. We endured many years of toil, mañana syndrome, heat, frustration, situations lost in translation.....you've heard it all in the novels! We now run our own exclusive property rental business here in this spectacular region. We have a selection of beautiful properties to suit most peoples' requirements, with private pools, gardens and fabulous views. It was worth it, sometimes we even squeeze a little time to enjoy the sunshine, relaxing way of life and fabulous regional cuisine....and vino! Our extensive knowledge of the area we also pass on to clients to ensure they have a wonderful time.

Beautiful place, amazing location. We have loved our time here. The bonus- nightingales singing at night (May), cuckoos by day, stunning display of stars, a moon you could read a newspaper by, and wonderful peace. Jill & Rosalind

According to Callum "this place rocks" and we all agree. We've had a great time.Simon & family, Appleton Roebuck , York.

Just what we needed- a peaceful spot with lots of beautiful scenery, sun and open space; a fabulous place to relax. Dee, Mark & family.

Perfect for a relaxed getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Los Establos. Quiet and relaxed area. The property was clean and tidy and was perfect for us. Car essential.

We spent most of our time around the pool with our feet up reading.

Batteries fully charged again.

The finca was lovely, very cosy clean and comfortable. The kitchen provided all the things we needed

  • 5 of 5

We really had the best time here, and the views across the valley and mountains was a treat and a feast for the eyes! The peace and quiet was exactly what we needed and having the small pool outside was perfect. (and having the coolbox was brilliant)

We loved the location but also not far from Columnar for needing essentials. There was plenty to see around the area as well as the beaches past Nerja but also the finca was a great place to relax and soak up the sun!

I would definitely want to return again- many thanks Angela.

Excellent, homely, well furnished and equipped, very good wifi connection

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 10 days end March - beginning April, when the weather in this part of Spain can be chilly. The log burner and store of firewood were used with gratitude, as was the ample supply of blankets! Nevertheless we were pleased to have one day warm enough to laze at the side of the pool. This apartment has everything needed for self catering and more besides. Well situated for local villages & tourist sites (Nerja, Competa, Antequera, Cordoba etc) but a car is needed. The track to this apartment can be negotiated with a regular vehicle.

A glorious view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this little house. In our 8 day holiday my husband spotted 80 bird species and most of them were at or near Los Establos. eg 10 bee eaters on the local telephone wire. My children enjoyed the pool. I was very pleased to find a bath. Everything we needed was there and a bit more besides. Thank you.

Lovely property in a quiet, secluded spot

  • 4 of 5

Lovely stay. A comfortable and well stocked villa with a lovely pool in peaceful surroundings which was accurately portrayed in the details. The villa was clean and tidy with Angela being flexible about us arriving and helpful afterward. Extras were provided for us with a travel cot and highchair which was much appreciated.

We would recommend this property for anyone who likes to be a little out of the way and wanting a quiet holiday in the mountains, and doesn't mind driving to get to the wealth of places to see around the area.

Thank you for a lovely stay.
