About Judy Mottershead

My husband and myself divide our time between England and Spain, we love the relaxed way of life in Spain and their attitude towards families young or old. Since being here we have made many friends and have also adopted 2 dogs (Toby who is very shy with people he doesn't know and Poppy who is a mischievous youngster who loves people) we also have adopted 2 cats who decide if they want a stroke off you or not. You will see us round and about, cleaning the pool or watering the garden but giving you your privacy but if you want a chat that's ok, we're friendly northerners and like a good laugh. We have an fruit orchard and we may even be plying you with fruit dependant on the season we can only eat so much.

Judy Mottershead purchased this villa in 2005

Why Judy Mottershead chose Sayalonga

We originally purchased a property in Torrox but wanted to buy a property for rental in the region, after looking around for many months we were shown a piece of land and immediately fell in love with the views and peacefulness of the area and all the time being 15 minutes drive from the coast, we decided to purchase the land and had Casa Lazy Days built. Each day you can wake up look at the mountains and it can look completely different in the varying light. We see the local goatman with his herd roaming around the hills,the local Spanish come to the campo to tend their land and in spring the area is covered with almond blossom and wild flowers an ideal time for walkers. Our friendly neighbours are of different nationalities and stop to say hello or have a quick chat.

What makes this villa unique

Whilst being situated in the countryside you are only 5mins drive from Sayalonga a lovely whitewashed village where everyone is made welcome and 10/12 minutes drive from Algarrobo Costa and its beaches. Casa Lazy Days is home from home everything you could need is provided. We can also give you info on the area and restaurants and if required could be available to drive you to the coast if you all want to have a drink. If you arrive on a late flight and need extra shopping getting in that's no problem you can just email me a shopping list and pay when you get here. If leaving on a late flight you can leave your cases here and go out and enjoy your day and pick them up before you leave for the airport. If there are no guests arriving on your departure day you can leave at any time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A real restful holiday a perfect place to get away. We can't fault the villa it was extremely comfortable, had everything we needed and more, Thank you for your hospitality and kindness Denton Family,

The villa is bright,welcoming & spotlessly clean. View from terrace stunning, pool & garden delightful. Welcome pack was really thoughtful touch. Found Frank & Judy next door a real bonus they gave us loads of useful info about area and places to visit. Cannot recommend this villa highly enough for a relaxing break in a quality property with outstanding views and facilities. The two gentle friendly dogs Poppy & Toby made the holiday even more special.

Lovely clean airy well equipped villa.

  • 5 of 5

What can we say. The villa sits high up on the hillside where it is private and catches the sun. It is a two storey property and the owners live downstairs. The owners are friendly, but not intrusive and you can enjoy a chat or not as you please. The pool area is private and solely for the guests use. The property is modern and airy with three good sized bedrooms. The kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook and a washing machine and dryer. Wifi works well and all in all this is a property you won't be disappointed with. There are two ways to get to the villa from the main road (both via relatively long winding tracks), but hey, if you want peace and quiet, solitude a bit off the beaten track, then this is a minor price to pay and you have to remember you are in Spain and tracks are a normal part of life.

Poppy and Toby are the owners two dogs who will welcome you lovingly and befriend your children. They visited us regularly, but in part I think that was due to the slices of ham we gave them. A great holiday was had by all and we would certainly rebook Judy and Franks villa.

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you for such a brilliant review it was a pleasure meeting you all and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is good to hear everyone's comments to see if there are things that we could improve on, but the track to the property is not one of these and as you say tracks are part of Spain. It would be a pleasure to see you all again. Frank & Judy and of course the animals.

Beautiful villa with amazing views and lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa with stunning views. Lovely pool area great for the family. The whole package at Casa Lazy Days is great, Frank picked us up at the airport, welcome pack of essentials on your arrival which you can add to if required you would just pay the extra on arrival, the hire of Frank and Judys car for the week all contributed to a very stress free booking and holiday. Unfortunately we did meet Judy as she was in the UK on our visit but Frank was extremely helpful if you needed anything it was no problem. Sayalonga is a lovely traditional Spanish village with 3 restaurants of which we would throughly recommend Casa Mari great food and really good prices in a lovely setting. Overall you would not be disappointed with your stay in this villa, it is lovely.

Beautiful villa, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa with amazing views. Stayed here first week of school holidays in October. Lovely pool area, which my daughter enjoyed. The whole package was excellent from being picked up at the airport, welcome pack (plus you can add extras if you require which you can pay for when you arrive) and hiring Frank and Judys car, this all added to a very stress free booking and holiday. Unfortunately we didn't meet Judy as she was in the U.K. On our visit but Frank was extremely helpful, if you needed anything it was no problem. There is a great restaurant in the village of Sayalonga called Casa Mari great food and great prices. The village is lovely. Would definitely recommend this villa whether you are a couple or a family it has everything you would want.

Relaxing, picturesque family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a lovely relaxing holiday with our daughter, son in law & our two grandchildren. The villa is very private with amazing views, which we enjoyed whilst having meals outside on the bbq. It was also ideal having lovely restaurants, towns beaches and shops within a short drive. Frank and Judy are lovely people who are always happy to help if needed. We loved our holiday here and our only regret is not staying here for longer than the 9 nights. Mandy & family

Lazy Days

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely fortnight’s holiday at Casa Lazy Days during last two weeks of July. The villa had everything we needed the Wi-Fi was excellent and the large gas barbecue was invaluable. It was a thoughtful touch having a Welcome Pack for our arrival. It is nice and cool in the bedrooms at night which made sleeping very comfortable. The pool and surrounding area is well looked after and ideal for relaxing with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. The scenery is spectacular and the villa is very quiet and peaceful but within easy reach of the coast. It was ideal and hassle free getting picked up and dropped off at Malaga Airport, a great way to start the holiday and the use of the car is a superb idea, no queuing to pick up a hire car. Toby and Poppy became our great friends, it was a real pleasure having them around as we miss our own dog whilst we are away. Frank was always available to have a chat and give advice on places to visit and was happy to give us a lift in the evenings so we could enjoy a meal in the local village. Sayalonga has some lovely restaurants which are reasonably priced. We would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday with stunning views.

Owner's Response: Hello all, Thank you for the superb review, we're glad that you enjoyed your holiday with us and found everything that you hoped for when booking with us, we love the area and hope our visitors feel the same way. As always Toby and Poppy like to know who is visiting and like to take care of you also enjoying a pat and titbit along the way and yes they do have a sixth sense where food is concerned. We hope that you will visit us in the future and recommend us to any of your friends. Thank you for taking time to review your holiday with us. Best wishes, Frank, Judy, Toby, Poppy and the rest of the menagerie.

The village has all amenities, supermarkets, bars/restaurants, post office, chemist and bank. 15 minutes away is the larger village of Competa with more bars/restaurants etc. The nearby Sierra Alimijara national park and the Tejeda mountains are a paradise for nature lovers, walking, cycling and touring can be enjoyed in the unspoilt natural environment take advantage of the lower rental prices in the off peak season to enjoy these activities before the weather gets to hot. Also 15 minutes away is the water park at Torre del Mar open between July-Sept. For those who would like to visit Malaga leave your car at Torre del Mar and catch the local bus approx 7 euros return well worth the visit walk around the old port, enjoy the architecture and the old cathedral and people watch whilst sitting in one of the many tapas bars. You can take a scenic drive up to the world heritage site of the Alhambra at Granada, prices are reasonable, tickets must be booked ahead and can be done online. All in all the area around our villa is ideal for touring the real Spain, or of course you can just relax with your friends. We are situated in Inland Spain but the roads to Sayalonga are good tarmaced roads but winding and our villa is along a well used track please don't expect it to be like local roads in Britain.
