Modern Detached Villa w/Lg Private Pool-Great Sea/Mountain/Groves/Village Views

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Dec-2016
Villa near Alozaina, Malaga Province, Andalucia, Spain - Peaceful Location, lovely village. Ideal For Walking, On Edge Of Biosphere National Park

Well equipped modern villa overlooking orange, almond and olive groves, and much more, sitting in 3 acres of of it's own land, 5km from the village on a quiet track off the main road. Perfectly situated for day trips to the historic cities of Ronda, Seville, Granada and Cordoba and for a good variety of beaches at the coastal resorts of Marbella, Puerto Banus, Malaga and Fuengirola and more. Morroco and Gibraltar are also achievable in a day trip. This is a rural, non-commercial, typically Spanish location with easy access to a beautiful historic village, and not for those preferring a more tourist-based holiday. A key feature of this property are the absolutely stunning views, even by Spanish standards! (Best views in Andalucia, according to a Spanish, lawyer friend of ours). These views also give you beautiful sunrises. Spacious lounge which features high ceiling with rustic beams and leading onto a glass curtained covered terrace with 180 degree views. A number of golf courses and beaches within 45 mins drive, as well as shopping malls and the newly built modern port at Malaga with many restaurants and shops. Malaga is well worth a visit with it's beautiful buildings and Spanish non-touristy feel.

Alozaina is one of the most beautiful villages in the area, with a lovely old Church set at it's highest point. It has the benefit of many bars(!), most of which have a very varied tapas menu, as well as menu del dia of course. There are many quiet tracks and back roads to explore on foot or on wheels. You will never forget a holiday spent here, and for all the right reasons !

Guestbook comments from the owner

¨ We stayed at this lovely house in the midst of this summer´s heatwave and found it just delicious. Our initial contact with the owners was reassuringly straightforward and honest. We are a fussy pair and we had a few specific questions based upon our desire for privacy, which Betsy and David answered truthfully and without fuss for us.

The overall feel is of a very relaxed family home in a safe (we slept with windows and doors often left open) rural location, so pretty perfect for us. The house is spacious and clean. The lovely owners were on the very near but very discreet and not at all interfering. The house does indeed have fantastic views from lots of different vantage point, and the pool was deliciously refreshing, very welcome in the heat.

If you want an off the beaten track, non touristy, comfortable house with everything you could want, but with a very definite feel of it being a home rather than a holiday rental, in a divine part of Southern Spain, with views to die for, then this is house for you.

A lovely family holiday in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing holiday at this lovely Villa...our children had the best time...we spent most of our holiday lazing around the pool or in the pool..the views of the surrounding mountain/hills and picturesque village are out of this world..there is everything that you need with washing machine , dish washer , bbq, wifi , tv and a huge pool...the pictures don't do the house justice.

Betsy and David were so nice and we all had lovely meal at a nearby village one evening , and thoroughly enjoyed their company and their lovely Villa...i couldn't recommend it highly enough ..and we will be back next year for sure ..thank you again Betsy and David ...Patrick, Jeni and Ava and Aidan xx

Amazing pool, views and holiday

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa set a little way from the picturesque village on Alozaina. We had a fantastic weeks holiday with our two young children. David and Betsy could not have been more helpful before the trip, recommending the easiest route to the villa and with some all important directions when the sat nav just doesn't cut it (trust the directions they are right even if you think they're wrong!) The villa has two double bedrooms with king size beds which worked out great for us and our children (they did share a bed, but it was large enough for them both). Their room also came with a shutter ensuring they did not wake up too early for a holiday! There is loads of seating inside and outside which meant different views for each meal we ate! This really feels like a well-loved home with just about every utensil and item you might need, including a dishwasher, washing machine and a TV with English channels (helped the children with some down time). But most importantly for us the pool, it is amazing, large, cool and deep enough for all. David and Betsy also have noodles, floats, toys etc to ensure a great time was had by all in the pool. In fact, our eldest daughter (5) learnt to swim on her own on this holiday. I guess that's what happens when you're in a pool at least twice a day! We did take a number of day trips, with the beach and main tourist attractions only an hour away by car. This is the quietest and most relaxing holiday we have had with our children, they loved it and are already pestering us to return so they can go back in the pool again. Thank you David and Betsy for your insight into the area, kind nature, helpfulness, privacy and even getting up at 6am to see us off on the last day.

Book this villa for a perfect holiday, if not for the pool, then for the views!

Superb setting and supereb accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the rural setting of this 'finca' in the foothils of the Sierra de las Nieves overlooking the pretty village of Alozaina. We also appreciated the care that the owners had taken to ensure that we were able to have a really nice break, with the property having excellent amenities - even though it was a little cool for us to enjoy the pool for very long. Would we go again? Yes!!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed spending a little time with these guests. Would like to point out that one of the guests has very poor health, and they particularly requested that we would be on call and within easy reach in case of any health problem. Luckily there were none and they seemed to have lovely time.

Breathtaking views, spacious and lovely owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 with 2 children (age 8 and 9) and we had a fantastic 10 night stay here. The owners, Betsy and David, are such lovely people and nothing was too much trouble. The villa is very spacious and well equipped with everything you need and more! They even had binoculars for us to use which we made full use of having a good nosey at the town in the distance. The outside space is excellent, the pool larger than average and the views....well let's just say "breathtaking" isn't a strong enough word! It really is amazing especially watching the beautiful sunrises. We also saw lots of shooting stars at night! The villa is high up on a mountain so it's quite remote and nothing is in walking distance but that didn't bother us as we wanted peace and quiet and privacy and that's exactly what we got, you really do feel like you're on top of the world up there! It is not a touristy area (none of that british bars with white plastic chairs!), Alozaina is a quaint Spanish village which we found to be very quiet and delightful, we found everything we needed at the local supermarket (it was very cheap too!) and a few local restaurants that we tried but we ate at the villa a lot. We are already looking at going back next year so that says it all really! Thank you Betsy and David for letting us use your lovely home, you haven't seen the last of us :-) x

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect holiday villa. The location is unbelievable. The view from the terrace is breath-taking at all times of the day and night. The house is brilliantly designed so that it remains cool and fresh but also has room fans in the bedrooms. The pool is great and the terrace allows you to sit out at any time of the day and find sun or shade; it is enormous. The owners were there when we stayed and made us very welcome, but were very discreet. The villa is very well equipped and has plenty of everything you need. WiFi worked well. The whole place is just wonderful. You would have to go a long way to beat it. We would certainly recommend it to others and would go back ourselves.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malaga at 50 Kilometres Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

The owners would be happy to escort visitors on some of the many interesting walks in the area. Alternatively they could also provide day or half day trips out on off-road tracks. It should be pointed out that though that walking in the July and August months would be subject to very high temperatures, and is therefore not the ideal time for long walks.

Coast/Beach:

The beach at Marbella is 45 minutes drive and an hour to Fuengirola, with numerous beach side bars and restaurants. Also, between Marbella and Fuengirola there are many beaches, some themed. Malaga beach (55 mins) is also worth a visit with many children's play areas, overlooked by beachside bars. Malaga itself is a lovely old city unspoilt by tourism. There is lovely, child-friendly coast walk (about 6 km) between Marbella and Puerto Banus, which can be varied by taking one way on the 'cat'.

Travel:

The villa is 50 -55 minutes from Malaga airport. Car hire is essential.

Distances:

The nearest two villages of Alozaina and Yunquera are 5km away, both with restaurants, bars, supermarkets and banks. There is also a weekly market on Tuesday mornings in Alozaina. Alozaina also has a lovely 16th century church. Marbella, Ronda, Malaga, Fuengirola, The Wolf Park and Los Chorros lakes all within an hour. There are two water parks within an hour. The beautiful cities of Seville, Cordoba and Granada are all well worth one or two day visits, and easily achievable.

Further Details:

Horse riding, tennis, clay pigeon shooting, quad biking and safari trips all within half hour. Golf within 40mins. Extensive shopping facilities at Coin which is half an hour away. Modern shopping malls in Coin, Fuengirola and Marbella. Bars with food, restaurants, banks and mini-markets, butchers, fishmonger, and assorted other shops available in Alozaina and Yunquera.
