About Christina

After many years of coming to the area on holiday we knew that we wanted to retire here. My husband is a builder and after building homes in the UK he decided what he really wanted to do was build in Spain, what better place to build than the place we knew so well.. After at least 5 years of looking for a suitable building plot we eventually found one in Cotobro, were we built two houses, Villa Estrella being one of them..

Members of our family also love the area , Due to visits to us two other family members have now bought holiday homes close by.

Why Christina chose Costa Tropical & Lecrin Valley

The main advantages of this villa are its very private , very well equipped and of course the the stunning sea and mountain views..We love Almunecar, its a very friendly town and we consider the town to have just the right mixt of residents from different countries while still managing to remain typically Spanish..

What makes this villa unique

The Costa Tropical is a very beautiful area of Spain, unlike all the other built-up Costas, where the mountains come down and meet the sea. Wonderful unspoilt beaches and coves and stunning scenery. Villa in most idyllic spot overlooking the fabulous Cotobro Bay and Punta de la Mona peninsular. Wonderful climate, restaurants and places to visit.” All in all lots of activities if you want to be active or a beautiful pool and garden to relax by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely stunning villa, well presented, fully equipped and in the perfect location , the kids loved the villa and the town and so did we, will be coming back.

My wife and I have just had a fantastic holiday staying at Villa Estrella.

It was perfect for us. There are numerous sun terraces, beautiful secluded gardens and swimming pool. The only downside for me was having to leave.

The villa is comfortable and extremely well equipped. We wanted for nothing. I would not hesitate in recommending it and will happily return in the future.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

As seasoned travellers including many visits to Spain we needed to find a villa with views that was well located for a months stay. Villa Estrella exceeded our expectations and offered comfortable accommodation with outstanding views in a quiet location. The pool and pool area was a delight and we spent many hours relaxing there. The local town Almunecar was close enough to walk to (although the villa is at the top of a steep hill) and offered everything we required for a month 'living' in Spain.

The owners were delightful and whilst they were close by were totally discreet and offered plenty of advice on local amenities.

As travelers we have a golden rule not to return somewhere as there are so many places to see, however Villa Estrella and Cotobro/Almunecar were all so good that we intend to break our rule and use this villa again.

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Villa is lovely. Clean, bright and everything works!! The owners are helpful but un-obtrusive. The star of the show is the view. Sorry to re hash a well worn word but they simply are - spectacular. A peaceful spot but within a short drive of almunecar and la herradura

Fabulous views from a wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This property ticks all the boxes for a relaxing holiday and is exactly as depicted in the photographs - if not better! The pool and gardens are fabulous and we found it very difficult to stray too far from the villa. The villa is wonderfully clean and well equipped - with absolutely everything you could possibly need. The owners are friendly and helpful and always available if you need them. We have always said we would never go back to the same place but we may now have to make an exception. We have already recommended the villa to a friend at work and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in a lovely part of Spain.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

A really fabulous villa, each room has its own balcony that has spectacular views of the sea. The pool area is extremely private, we couldn't believe that we were actually staying at a place so spacious and beautiful. We haven't stopped telling our friends about this villa since we have returned.

Thank you to Peter and Christina for thinking of everything for a perfect holiday.
