Country Villa with Private Pool. Stunning Views & only 20 mins to great Beaches

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Aug-2016
3 Bedroom, 2 bathroom Villa - 20 mins from beaches of Almunecar and Salobrena

Looking for peace and quiet? Then this country villa with private pool, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms is the one for you. Set high above the Valle Verde (Green Valley) with great mountain and down the Green Valley towards the sea.

The beaches of Almuñécar only 20 mins. Granada 60 mins. Set between the 3 quaint, white-washed, Moorish villages of Ítrabo, Jete and Otívar.

The villa is a wonderful retreat from today´s hectic world, set in a peaceful location surrounded by olive groves and fruit orchards. The panoramic views are extraordinary and the sunsets out of this world. The night skies are crystal clear. Ideal for the perfect get-away-from-it-all holiday. It´s wonderfully positioned just 20 mins from the palm fringed beaches and ‘hidden’ coves of Almuñécar, Salobreña and La Herradura. Enjoy a harbour side meal at the pretty Marina Del Este with its variety of quality waterside restaurants. The Costa Tropical remains one of Spain´s best kept secrets and although popular with Spanish families is delightfully unspoilt and never over-crowded. This is an excellent base for exploring the rugged coastline of the Costa Tropical and the mountainous hinterland.

This beautifully located country property is a wonderful retreat from today´s hectic world, set in a peaceful location surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and fruit orchards. The panoramic views are extraordinary and the sunsets out of this world.

The Moorish mountain village of Otívar with 4 excellent restaurants is a 10 min drive (7km) the views from the village over the green valley (Rio Verde) are stunning. Visit the waterfalls of Otívar, and swim in the cool, clear mountain water cascading from the snow melt of the high peaks of Sierra Nevada. For the more adventurous there are river walks, abseiling and canyoning. For a truly spectacular drive take the old road up through Otivar to Granada.The traditional village of Itrabo is 2kms (5mins), here you will find a couple of bars, shops and a bank.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Villa Vista Verde we had never stayed in such an quiet place before but shall definitely consider a similar break within the next year. Everything we needed was at the Villa.

What a stunning location, just literally panoramic views right from

the Med to our own mountain peak! Very peaceful and the kids loved

it, most of the time spent in the pool!

Views to die for. My husband and I have returned from this lovely villa today. First we would like to say that Iain and Jane, the property managers, keep the villa in great condition, it was extremely clean and well cared for. They allowed us our privacy, but knew they were on the other end of a phone if needed. There is everything you need and more for a very comfortable stay. Plenty of cutlery, crockery pots and pans etc. Most importantly for us a really comfortable bed and pillows (this has spoilt holidays for us in the past)! The ensuite wet room was a definite bonus, and a very powerful shower. We also made very good use of the pool to cool down. As stated in my review title, the views are stunning. we would certainly stay here again and would recommend it. We have stayed in his area previously and still feel there are lots of places to explore, or just enjoy the beautiful weather and surroundings.

Owners Direct review

We had a fantastic week in this beautiful villa, the pictures don't really do it justice. The open plan kitchen/living room with its high exposed ceiling makes it very light and airy. A welcome break from the heat of the day. It has all of the things you could need away from home there are DVDs and plenty of books in case you can tear your eyes away from your surroundings. The pool though small is perfect for cooling off. The villa couldn't be situated in a better place, the remarkable view of the mountains though static there are always new things you didn't notice last time you looked! We made a point of sitting watching the sun go down over the horizon every night, just listening to the peace and quiet. The perfect get away from it all holiday!

The Moorish mountain village of Otívar with 4 excellent restaurants is a 10 min drive (7km) the views from the village over the green valley (Rio Verde) are stunning. Visit the waterfalls of Otívar, and swim in the cool, clear mountain water cascading from the snow melt of the high peaks of Sierra Nevada. For the more adventurous there are river walks,abseiling and canyoning. For a truly spectacular drive take the old road up through Otivar to Granada.

Itrabo is 2kms (5mins), here you will find a bar, shops and a bank. The traditional mountain village of Otivar with several excellent restuarants is just 7kms (10 mins).

The Costa Tropical remains one of Spain´s best kept secrets, and although popular with Spanish families is delightfully unspoilt, and never over-crowded. This is an excellent base for exploring the rugged Costa Tropical and mountainous hinterland. Granada and the World Heritage Alhambra Palace are only 60 mins away.

Coast/Beach:

There are many long, palm fringed beaches and small bays in both Almunecar and Salobrena, a short 20 minutes away. Going out of Almunecar and La Herradura there are many 'hidden' bays and beaches, most with traditional beach restaurants offering an excellent menu. There is also a very pretty naturist beach.

The famous 5 million years old Nerja Caves are 40 minutes away, a must see is the centre column in the Sala del Cataclismo (Cataclysm Hall) which reaches a height of 32 metres.

Malaga Airport - 80 mins drive.

Car Essential. From the tarmac road the property is approached by 5 minutes easy drive on a track (part concrete).

Distances:

Itrabo, 1.5kms - 2 small, well stocked supermarkets, bank, pharmacy, baker etc.

The Alpujarras (of "Driving over Lemons" fame) 30 mins.

Further Details:

For the more culturally minded there is the poet Lorca’s house/museum near Granada, and the Picasso gallery/museum in Málaga. And for history lovers the area is steeped in Moorish influences.

Nearby there is boat hire, golf, tennis, parascending, sailing and windsurfing, mountain biking, archery, 4x4 trips, a Kite Surfing School and water skiing. Riding in both Almunecar and La Herradura, for younger guests the pony club in Nerja is extremely popular.

Nearby there is boat hire, golf, riding, tennis, parascending, water skiing, sailing, windsurfing, rock climbing, diving, mountain biking, archery, 4x4 trips, and a Kite Surfing School.
