About Kevin & Valerie Lunn

We live in North Yorkshire, England and have been renting Casa Ladera to holiday makers since 2003 and El Paso Dos since 2006.

We fell in love with Nerja after a spending a holiday there and pursued our dream of owning our own property in the sun. Since our recent retirement we like to spend as much time as possible in the area.

We get lots of positive feedback from our guests and it gives us great pleasure to be able to share our holiday home in this beautiful part of Spain

Kevin & Valerie Lunn purchased this villa in 2003

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Hard to know where to start, as I look to the pool no one can believe our week is over and we are nearly ready to go. Tranquil, blissful, everything we could need in the villa which had so many little touches to make our visit such a perfect holiday. Fab food at La Ciruela and Sebastian at Las Chinas is the most hospitable restauranteur. I have met bees, dragonflies, goats, donkeys, Mr Toad, swifts drinking from the pool, horses, turkeys and all the lovely birds. Loved it. Even our worldwise 20 year olds said they’d never seen anything like it. Just amazing."

Relaxing holiday in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a very relaxed 2 weeks in Casa Ladera.

The villa was easy to find, following detailed instructions which included photos. The facilities were excellent and exactly as described; the villa contained all we needed, and more, and was spotlessly clean. There was an initial problem with the WiFi, which the owners dealt with very quickly.

The track to the property may not for a nervous driver! We had a Fiat Panda and managed surface, bends and inclines, both on the track to the property and in the mountainous area.

The immediate area is very beautiful and peaceful, sometimes broken by the daily visit of the goats as they passed by! We enjoyed visits to the coast, to Nerja and Frigliana. We spent most time, however, relaxing by the pool and on the terraces, making good use of the BBQ.

What more could you ask for! Totally Perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This year was the sixth time we have spent enjoying the fabulous facilities at Casa Ladera. As usual it was spotless with every thing you need to make your holiday enjoyable.

Kevin and Val are very caring and always on hand to make sure that your stay runs smoothly. The photos and description of the villa are perfect,. As soon as you walk through the door you feel relaxed and peaceful.

We love to hear and see the goats, donkey and a new addition this year a beautiful vivid green tree frog that visited us in the evenings along with several lizards.

We don't go out much as we love the villa so much, when we do it's only to the supermarket and out into Nerge for diner where there are some lovely restaurants our favourite one being Antica Roma.

The views are spectacular and you will never tire of looking across the valley.

We would absolutely recommend this villa, and we are already counting the weeks until we can return.

Thank You Kevin and Val for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Beautiful villa in a gorgeous secluded setting

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Casa Ladera 4 or 5 times now and it never fails to impress, we just love it. Communications with the owners Val and Kevin before, during and after our stay were excellent with lots of information and maps and a real determination to make our stay perfect. The villa is beautiful, spotlessly clean, well furnished and equipped with quality furniture, crockery, kitchenware and linens. Each bedroom has fitted wardrobes with drawers and quality beds and mattresses. Both bathrooms have lovely hot showers. The outdoor dining furniture and great BBQ allowed us to spend all day and evening outside, making the most of the hot days and warm nights. Air conditioning was a welcome addition ensuring a comfortable nights sleep. The kitchen was superb, well equipped with plenty of pots, pans utensils, a good sized fridge/freezer and dishwasher. We also made use of the washing machine. The garden is well kept and makes lounging by the pool a pleasure. The villa offers uninterrupted views of the mountains and is quiet, private and secluded so excellent for chillout.

As its so lovely we did not venture out too much this time and enjoyed being around the villa - the highlight of our day was when the goat bells could be heard in the afternoons and we could watch the herds graze and pass by. When we went out our favourites was enjoying a few drinks in the bars of Frigiliana, excellent Pizza at Pizzeria da Giuseppe in Frigiliana (who also do take away), Paella at Burriana Beach restaurants and cocktails at Cochran's Bar Terrace in Nerja - which has amazing sea views.

Can't wait for next time - highly recommended.

A perfect place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Ladera offers peace, tranquility and miles of unspoilt views. The villa is welcoming,beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. The minute we walked into Casa Ladera we felt 'at home'. The owners have carefully thought about and provided everything to make their guest's stay an enjoyable one. Val and Kevin were prompt in answering any queries and provided clear instructions, information about the area and directions to get to the villa. We enjoyed a couple of lunches out at the local restaurants which are about ten to fifteen minutes walk...downhill on the way back!! Shopped in main supermarkets about six miles away towards Nerja. Excellent choice of fresh produce, meat and fish. If like us, you enjoy a rural setting with amazing views of the mountains, this is the place for you!

A truly magnificent villa in stunning surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful 3 week visit at this little paradise in the beautiful countryside which we grew to love and adore as a home from home.Having stayed at several villas around Spain in the past this is by far and away the best in every way.

The villa itself has everything you could possibly wish for is spotless exceptionally well maintained has a lovely clean warm pool that always catches the sun from dawn to dusk and is encircled by tranquil gardens overlooking breathtaking countryside.It is so peaceful you hardly hear anything other than the goats coming down the mountain side in early evening the crickets happily chirping away all day and becoming more vocal until turning the volume down at sundown and the little red dragon fly that turned up to dance around the edge of the pool every morning!The villa is the last of three villas on a small winding track which mean't that we seldom heard another car apart from the weekly visit by Carmen the cleaner and Jose the pool maintenance man arriving on his moped from time to time.

The owners Kevin and Valerie are genuinely lovely kind people who went way out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed throughout our stay and were always on hand 24/7 contactable back home in the UK by phone or email should we need any information or assistance.

We spent the majority of our trip around the villa (it's so nice that it almost felt a shame to drag ourselves away which is unusual for us as we normally like to get out and about) breakfast by the pool lunchtime/dinner bbq's on the outside terrace overlooking the adjacent mountains glasses of chilled Freixinet at one of the garden tables it really never fails to impress.

When we did tear ourselves away we headed of to some of the superb little coves and beaches along the coast where it was quieter even for July/August than the more mainstream beaches in Nerja itself Canuelo beach being our favourite with good snorkelling opportunities to be had.We enjoyed Kayaking off Maro beach discovering little isolated coves and caves with crystal clear warm water horse riding around the fruit vineyards of Nerja and just driving off into the stunning interior of Andalucia off of the beaten track to experience the culture.(A little Spanish as always goes a long way to endearing yourself to the locals who are always helpful friendly and courteous.)

We really hope to return again in the near future and thank you both again for a stay we shall never forget.
