Casita in Rural location near to Colmenar, Inland Costa del Sol, Spain - Beautiful, Tranquil Location, 4km from Colmenar
Peace and tranquility are the order of the day, the noise of birds and the bells of the goats is about all you will hear during your stay. The Casita is totally independent from the main house, our rural retreat that we retired to 6 years ago. We are a quiet couple with no children or dogs to disturb your peace, and will totally respect your privacy during your stay. The property is ideal for couples who enjoy the quiet life, close to national parks perfect for walking, hiking and bird watching. As well as escaping from the stresses and strains of life. Colmenar - a typical Spanish village is 10 mins drive away, it is well equipped with several, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, chemist and a 24 hours medical centre. Whilst retaining all the charm and beauty in its small winding streets. Car hire is essential in this area. Although we are only 45 mins easy drive from Malaga city and airport, with only the last 1.5kms of your journey to the Casita on a track.

Look no further for a relaxing casita
My wife and I spent a wonderful week as guests of Barbara and David. They are the perfect hosts and provided a property that is extremely well appointed and beautifully presented. Whilst the Casita is in a very quiet location, it is only minutes away from a road network providing fast access to all the main cities and in the area. The local town can be reached in five minutes and provides all necessary amenities such as bars, restaurants and supermarkets. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and were extremely very well looked after by our hosts.
We would both like to thank Barbara and David for what was a truly magical 8 days of bliss, our accommodation was perfect attention to detail was beyond anything we had experienced before they had thought of everything. The surroundings are heavenly if you want peace, quiet, uninterrupted views then this is the place for couples to truly unwind, once again thank you to you both and we look forward to planning our next visit. Best wishes Jackie and Richard
This was our 3rd visit to David and Barbara's home and we have just booked for August 2015.
Visiting here is like being at a 5 star hotel with the freedom of a self catering villa with the most amazing neighbours.
David and Barbara made us feel like family and not just clients. The house is fantastic with every intricate detail and comfort catered for. Ideal location for rural and city exploring with plenty of advice and local knowledge available if you desire.
One of THE best places I've ever stayed.
First, on arrival the welcome and welcome package was amasing. Secondly, the hosts are very helpfull with everything ( they even took us to the beach for a day out ). Never been in such a clean place, you can eat from the ground. After a week we went to an other accommodation we had booked but returned straight away back for an other week. Five stars is five stars!
We are a young couple who enjoy peace and quiet and we certainly found it in this wonderful Casita. The location was secluded down a private track which was easy to drive and find with help from the owners on our arrival. Beautiful views and pure peace and quiet.
Everything from Casita, pool, roof terrace was spotless,comfortable and well maintained exactly as described in the listings, if not better.
We were made very welcome by the owners, who had a great knowledge of the area and always on hand if needed. The layout of the property provides plenty of privacy if that is what you like.
The local area is very rural and Spanish with lots of local bars with wonderful tapas at very reasonable prices. Very easy access to good roads to see major attractions, Malaga, Granada, Ronda, and the coast. So you have the best of both worlds. We will be back. Thank you Jill and Ian
Our casita in Paradise
We had a lovely stay in our little casita outside of Colmenar. The property is situated on a dirt track, but our hosts gave very detailed directions and met us for the last leg. It was impeccably clean, and our host provided a very substantial welcome package of food and beverages. We cooked more than we anticipated, and the kitchen was well-equipped. Our hosts were also fountains of helpful information re: routes, parking and sights in the surrounding area. It is well-situated between Malaga, Cordoba, and Granada. We found ourselves coming back earlier each day we were there, just so we could enjoy the lovely surroundings, the pool, and watching the stars come out on our private terrace. The only downsides were the lack of a/c (which wasn't a problem for us, since we were there in early September) and the time it took to get to a major highway. But even that was part of its charm--so very quiet and relaxing! If you're looking for lively nightlife, then this isn't for you, but if you're looking for gracious hosts, a home away from home, with lots of options for sightseeing and hiking within an hour's radius, then this will be perfect!
Activity and Interests
Colmenar has easy access to beach resorts of Malaga, Torremolinos 45 mins drive away. Then further along the coast to Fuengirola and Marbella 1 hour to 1.5 hours away. Gibraltar can be reached in a couple of hours.
Malaga is our nearest airport, 45 mins drive away, most of which is on the Motorway. Car hire is essential which we are happy to help with if needed.
4kms to Colmenar. 9kms to Riogordo a very pretty village. Both villages have a weekly market, lots of places to eat in typical Spanish surroundings. Colmenar has a very good bus service to Malaga city, several times a day which is the easiest way to see the city. Antequera is 45 mins drive inland and well worth a trip for its lovely architecture. Other places of interest within easy reach for the day are Cordoba, Granada and Ronda.
Colmenar has it own outside swimming pool open in July and August. Velez Malaga has a water park open from May to September. Velez Malaga town is the nearest major town, well worth a visit to the old town and the modern shopping mall. Here you will find larger supermarkets, shops, money exchange and travel agents for trips further a field.
