We are determined to make your holidays unforgettable. La Huerta Villas provides quality of life, all amenities are available, decoration is tasteful and the atmosphere is Zen.

Howard and Angelina Slade Heerens purchased this villa in 2007

Why Howard and Angelina Slade Heerens chose Almáchar

We love the area because it is sub-tropical. Access is easy. The environment is inspiring for photographers, painters, guest will be able to relax and walking routes are inviting. Guests can choose form the calm privacy of the location or/and the typical white villages around, natural parks or the bustling cities and beaches mere 12km away, Malaga airport 45km., Malaga centre 40 min by car.

Temperatures are always better than else where: never too cold and not as hot as in other parts of Spain. Winter means occasionally strong winds, nights between 5 -7 degrees, fresh mornings and some rainy days. Usually during the cooler day a body warmer would already be too much.

We are surrounded by avocado, mango and lychees trees (always green). Vines and almond trees cover the slopes. We added some tropical palm trees to our property, lush lawns and beautiful flower borde

What makes this villa unique

Our property is unique because of the special attention to the guests and the eclectic art objects/decoration all around. it is beautifully and completely furnished, all details are available preventing guests to load their suitcases with towels, linen, bath products, hair dryers, too many cloths. Everything is of quality:no plastic chairs.

The orchard is rich with a variety of fruit and vegetables. It is a joy for clients who have free use of the orchard's offerings.

On request, guests can joint twice a week for home made meals in the "secret garden". Again on request, there are possibilities for Spa treatment.

Picked ups at the airport or be taken for excursions, all this is possible. Special wishes only have to be mentioned and we do what is in our power to for-fill them.

Access to all services, incl. super fast train En AVE from Malaga to Madrid only 2 and half hours. An excursion which is possible as one day visit (or more).

Relaxing stay for Christmas and New year 2016

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 nights in this beautiful place in Andalucia for Christmas and New Years 2016.

We loved every minute of it. The house was gorgeous decorated with tasteful furniture and settings.

Our fantastic landlords Angelina and Howard prepared everything for us before arrival, even a Christmas tree.

This was a holiday we never wanted to end.

We can highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to have peace, quiet and a fantastic view overlooking the hills.

Elisabeth and Mats from Stockholm

painting holiday with Angelina

  • 5 of 5

The property was attractive, clean and comfortable with a beautiful garden- which added to the enjoyment of an excellent painting break.

Angelina and Howard were the perfect hosts. The position of the property is lovely and well situated for sightseeing - providing that independent holiday guests have a car.
