About Keith Graham

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!

Keith Graham purchased this villa in 1999

Why Keith Graham chose Almuñécar

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.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy the total relaxation which recharges the batteries ...we could always stay for a few more days !!

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.

Absolutely Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

Beyond compare, this Spanish villa was a simply delightful respite for our recent vacation. Stepping into the foyer, you are immediately greeted with a framed picture-window view of the sea. The villa cascades five levels down the hillside with each, perfectly-proportioned, living space & guest suites featuring sea or garden views - and most spaces featuring some sort of connected terrace and/or private balcony. The interior is extremely spacious, but rooms are warm and cozy with rough-hewn beams, Terra Cotta tile floors, custom lighting, and a soothing color palette. The main living area features an inviting lounge w/wet bar, game table, adjacent media nook, a fireplace, and - most importantly - french doors to the expansive outdoor loggia. A dreamy spot to sit with a glass of wine and stare at the sea. The nicely outfitted kitchen is also on this level, with direct access to the same terrace/loggia. Master suite takes the uppermost floor, with it's own private sun deck, and sumptuous master bath featuring jetted-tub & walk-in shower with multiple body sprays. There are four additional bedroom suites - all with private baths spread throughout multiple levels. The lower level opens to an exterior bar/dining space, with a staircase to the pool deck. Sunbathing is spectacular on the pool deck, and the views are priceless. In the evenings we would light up the property - inside and out - and the villa simply glows. Such a welcoming and comfortable space. The elevator seemed silly at first, but after one day, we found it a welcome convenience getting from level to level with ease and convenience. Again, the kitchen is ample to delight a chef. There is laundry onsite. Towels and linens were plentiful. Beds were comfortable. The house was silent at night, with good separation/privacy for all guests. Check-in was simple enough with the owner providing a lockbox code to access the keys, and the local care-taker following up with a visit within the hour to make sure we had settled in and see if we had any questions. We picked this location simply based on this villa. It turned out to be ideal as many nearby sites are within a quick drive, and ample dining and shops, as well as beaches and water activities are just down the hill. We were fortunate to have selected the most spectacular accommodations, and even more blessed to have had incredible weather - which can be risky in late-March/early-April. Total sunshine and low-70's for us!

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.
