About Stewart Crosbie

I am a Freelance Production Manager working mainly in London's West End. My wife and I fell in love with this property when we rented it for a holiday in 2003 and on finding that it was for sale - bought it!

We spend as much time as we can at the villa but my work load means that we have long periods when we are "stuck in London."

Stewart Crosbie purchased this villa in 2004

Why Stewart Crosbie chose Torrox

The property is in a secluded area and very quiet and peaceful. Access to shopping and entertainment is easy although a car is required- or motor bike! It is possible to walk to Torrox, going is easy but coming back is uphill.

What makes this villa unique

The property is quiet but at the same time in not remote and there is a fairly constant stream of people, both local and visiting, passing by on foot or by car

A fabulous villa with fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

The road to the villa isn't the best but once you arrive it was worth the drive.

The villa is equipped with everything you can possibly need.

The pool is in the sun all day only down side to the pool is automatic pumps turn on each morning and evening for 2 hours and they are quite noisy.

Adults had to sleep in the single beds and they are not very comfortable but the double bed was ok.

The BBQ needs some TLC we didn't use it but it could be great again if it was cleaned up.

Views from the villa are great. There are games and books, TV and music system for entertainment .

We had a 5 year old with us and he spent most of his time in the pool.

We would use this villa again, Derek the pool guy is very pleasant and helpful.

Superb accommodation in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous 2 week stay @ Finca Rustica.

Over the past 15 years we have stayed in various properties in this area.

This is the bet yet.

The villa, location, pool & views are superb.

Total peace & quiet ensures a relaxing break.

The Pueblo is only 10 minutes drive. Well worth a visit.

Similar distance to the lovely quiet Penoncillo beach.

The temperature during our stay was very hot & the pool was a must.

The villa has everything you need & is very traditional.

Thanks to Derek . On hand for anything you may need.

Would certainly recommend this property if you want to experience the real Spain.

Thank you & regards,

Jane & Al

A hidden oasis

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a place, totally private and peaceful, comfortable bed and a great nights sleep. The English channels on the tv were great at night just to catch up on the news, that's the only time they were turned on, the rest of the time we were outside enjoying the stunning views down to the sea, it is a regular little suntrap. We went into Torrox Costa and got some charcoal and crevettes for the barbeque, brilliant. Torrox is a lovely town and we found a great bar on the beach in Torre Del Mar, the Finca is a great place to explore the area from, we went to the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada in one day, fantastic! We really did not want to go home, we had seven days in early April and it was only cloudy one day and was very hot the rest, can't wait for our next visit, thankyou Derek and Stewart for all your help, and thankyou Derek for sharing your beautiful home with us, will be back soon!

Tranquil and secluded

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property! Very secluded with fantastic views of the sea and surrounding countryside and a lovely pool. The villa has all the amenities you need so there is no need to stray far and you can have a totally chilled out holiday.

The road up to the villa is a little hairy the first time but you soon get used to it and it is so worth it. The property seems to get the sun all day until it disappears behind the hilltops and is surrounded by lovely plants and fruiting trees.

Torrox Pueblo is only a 10 minute drive and Torrox Costa not much further. An ideal base for either doing nothing or visiting places.

Highly recommended. We will return!

Wonderful finca, wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We've really enjoyed our 2 weeks at Finca Rustica. The villa is well equipped for our family of mum, dad, and 2 teenage daughters - including sharp knives and plenty of good cooking utensils. The pool has been such a godsend and we've all used it at least once a day to cool off. And the area has so much to offer - I never knew that the Costa del Sol could be so good. Beautiful beaches, diving, snorkelling, sea kayaking, interesting local markets, wonderful cities nearby such as Malaga and Granada, plus some gorgeous local villages including Torrox itself. And the people are so friendly. We're going home wonderfully relaxed and sad to be leaving such a home from home.

A very good homely retreat with wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

We had a marvellous time enjoying our months stay at a very good home from home holiday retreat with stunning views. The little balcony overlooking the hills and sea gave a much needed breeze on the hot days. The villa is clean and tidy and equipped with more or less anything that you would use at home, the beds are comfy, the much needed air con a welcome on those hot nights and the pool and patios great. I would have liked Roman steps into the pool as it is more difficult to go in and out as you become less mobile but this has not deterred us from already booking are next months holiday in 2016. If you need any help with anything whist there you are safe in the knowledge that Derek, Elaine or Eric are only a phone call away. The area is rural and rugged with the charming village and picturesque coast only minutes away, lovely beach front restaurants and sun-beds for during the day and for a more dressed up night time meal El Figon restaurant in the village hits the spot (Booking required) If you want to dip back into your pre-holiday life you can find most shops and amenities, even a Lidl, (Nearby but not too near) Our flights are already booked looking forward to 2016.
