About the Owner

My wife Sue and I fell in love with la Aguilera one stormy day just before Christmas 1999, we completed the purchase 8 days later and have enjoyed many family holidays in la Herradura. The house and area is a total contrast to our home in the UK in a lakeland village near to Keswick. We really enjoy the seclusion and the views along the coast and down to the marina there is always activity yet we are detatched in our private eyrie. The house remains cool even during the summer due to the sea breezes which start mid morning A perfect nights sleep is guaranteed by the sound of the waves on the beach below. The nearby town and villages are predominantly Spanish unlike the western costas yet there are new golf courses, and superb coast and mountain scenery, Malaga is under 1 hour - Perfect!

Guestbook comments from the owner

July 2009...wow what a holiday! We were totally overwhelmed by the house and its amenities, lots of space and fantastic views yet very private with a superb pool, in fact we all felt very priveliged to stay at what must be one of the best villas on the Spanish Costas. Sue, Alan Carr and family York UK

October 2011......all i can say is that La Aguilera is the most beautiful,comfortable ,stunning villa we have ever rented and yes we will be back .We had two fantastic weeks and were surrounded by so much beauty we were tempted not to leave the house . however there was so much to tempt us we did all the local towns and Granada to boot.Thanks you for letting us share your Spanish idyll.

What a lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with friends to celebrate a special birthday. What a beautiful villa and everything exactly as shown in the photos. Wonderful views. A wealth of lovely, tasteful features. The kitchen is very well fitted, with quality appliances and an abundance of good quality crockery/glassware etc. It would have been tempting to stay put in such lovely surroundings, but we explored the area and went to some really nice places. You really need to have a car here. Can highly recommend a stay here, and I hope we can come back one day.

From the Owner

Living and working in Keswick allegedly the wettest albeit most beautiful part of England we need ed a change for the winter months, La Herradura has everything, great coastal views, mountain scenery but the biggest bonus is the abundance of warm sunny days.

Activity and Interests


There are two beaches within 5 mins. Marina del Este is a 5 min drive from the villa and has many excellent bar, restaurant, art galleries and a dive centre. Adjacent to the Marina is a sheltered shingle beach with safe swimming and some of the best diving in Southern Spain. La Herradura is about 1k and has a 2k horse-shoe shaped bay, a fine beach with a choice of bar and chiringuitos.


Malaga airport 50 mins. Easy Jet Monarch, Ryan Air ... Car hire is recommended.


La Herradura village 20 mins walk / 5 mins drive. Almunecar - 10 mins drive. Nerja 20 mins. Granada 1 hour.

Further Details:

La Herradura has many bars and restaurants - all within walking distance. For night life there is a late bar La Cochera which has regular live music and is immensely popular. As well as the local market for fresh produce, there are two bakeries and a number of small supermarkets. Recreation offers many choices – water sports, para-gliding, scuba diving, hand gliding, yacht charter, hiking and horse riding. For a special day the Caves at Nerja or an excursion to Granada to the Alhambra - booking is essential.
