About Kevin & Valerie Lunn

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

We fell in love with the Nerja area 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.

We stayed for 17 nights in October 2018 and have been trying to think what, in addition to all the other great qualities mentioned in these reviews, makes Casa Ladera so special. We think that there are 2 things; firstly the absolute and almost total peace and tranquility surrounding the property which you cannot help noticing and commenting on on a daily basis.

Secondly the way in which everything you see is utterly pleasing to the eye no matter where you look; the house is set in a bowl of mountains near enough to be mighty impressive but not close enough to hem you in and as you look closer the beautiful Mediterranean garden which Val and Kevin have created and the way in which the pool and the house itself just fit in naturally with the surrounding landscape. It is all utterly beautiful.

The house is a bungalow with 2 double bedrooms and 2 full en-suite bathrooms on one side and an open plan kitchen, dining area and sitting area on the other all more than comfortable and with all you could need for a long or a short break. But it is the garden, pool and extensive decking which make the difference and where you can find sun, shade or dapple at any time of day and be more than comfortable. We can understand why some people hardly leave the place though we went somewhere every day, often in the morning to give us time back at the villa. It might seem a bit sad to say so but the provision of UK television is a real bonus and must be even more so as the nights grow shorter. A once weekly housekeeping visit was also much appreciated. One more thing, if you live in an area of light pollution, as most of us do, take the opportunity to go outside when it is pitch black and clear and look up, simply magical. We were also very impressed with the speed and efficiency with which the owners dealt with our two problems, wifi and drains, especially as they were somewhere between UK and Greece at the time. Finally w e have to mention the track down from the road to the property; if you are an inexperienced, not very competent or nervous driver you will find it daunting to say the very least.

We had 2 days in each of Antequera and Córdoba before our villa stay and a night stop in Granada from the villa, a short journey and the hotel Dauro is great and they will park your hire car for you.

We could go on and on about this fabulous place but suffice it to say that fabulous is only one of the many superlatives which apply to Casa Ladera

Absolutely beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous house in a really lovely peaceful location with beautiful views. It has absolutely everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. It's beautifully peaceful and the pool and outside area are just the icing on the cake. We felt a bit guilty as we didn't ever really stray too far from the house - the kids were permanently in the pool and we had everything we needed there.

Kevin and Valerie were always there to answer any questions that we had and had set everything up perfectly.

The track down to the house is fairly steep and narrow with a couple of pretty severe corners. This definitely wouldn't put us off but it's worth thinking about the sort of car you might hire and I wouldn't recommend your first trip down being in the dark!

Paradise. Absolutely amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week. Val and Kevin were great with communication and did everything possible to make our stay a relaxing and enjoyable one. Track to villa not for the faint hearted and I had my eyes shut most of the time as usual but it's so worth it. Villa is beautiful, clean, well equipped and, as my son said "could be somewhere really tropical". Can't praise it enough. Frigiliana, about a ten minute drive away, was beautiful, with lots of restaurants and shops. Unfortunately the restaurant which was a walk away, was never open during our stay. This villa is definitely on my radar for next year. Thank you Val and Kevin.

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.

Car: necessary


The beaches of Nerja are within a 25 minute drive and provide variety for all holidaymakers young and old. Burriana is the most famous and provides a variety of water sports including a scuba diving centre. Driving east from Nerja it is possible to discover more secluded coves nestling among the scenic cliffs.


Car hire is essential to make the most of your holiday although it is possible to take a taxi from Frigiliana or Nerja if the driver fancies a night off. Malaga airport is an hours drive away from the villa. Detailed directions will be sent out prior to your holiday as well as suggestions for buying groceries.


The nearest village of Frigiliana is a 10 minute drive away although it is possible to walk there along the countryside tracks in 1 1/2 hours. There are two restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walk away from the villa, both serve good food and have wonderful views down the valley to the sea.

Further Details:

This area provides something for everyone whether it be sightseeing and culture, sunbathing, shopping or relaxing by the pool. You choose how active to be! There is plenty of information available in the villa about the surrounding area as well as many local walk leaflets.
