About Caroline Hepper

We come from the South of England but have worked in the Middle East for many years and wanted to buy somewhere that we could escape to with a pool and some sun thrown in.

Caroline Hepper purchased this villa in 2001

Why Caroline Hepper chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

We chose this area because we wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle of the coast. We were using it as an escape from our busy lives, but wanted to feel part of the real Spain. Colmenar although changed over the years, still has the authentic Spanish feel about it, which we love. We hope you enjoy your stay and get to see a little of the real Spain.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa although having neighbors nearby and the village of Colemar only 3 minutes by car (or 10 minutes if you feel like a walk, although be warned the walk back is a little steep!), there is no-one overlooking us and we love the privacy and being able to close the gates and be left to our own devices and my husband being able to have music blaring without the neighbors complaining.....you can enjoy skinny dipping too if you like!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Casa Colina... who'd have thought that Paradise would be found at the end of a one kilometre bumpy goat track. Fab villa in a great location with awesome views snd stunning walks. If you want to get away from it all - this is the place for you!

Good quality, private, well equipped, amazing views

  • 4 of 5

Didn't use villa facilities to full due to poor weather, it is April, sadly didn't go in the beautiful pool or sit on the lovely comfy outside furniture watching the sun go down as it was raining/hailing/thundering! But inside the villa had lovely comfy sofas, loads of entertainment and a well equipped kitchen and AC which was also heating thankfully! The area has loads to do within 1 hour drive beach, mountains, golf, history, walking. Drive from village interesting but made easier being shown by Ralph and Gary who also provided maps of area. Colmenar well serviced with food shops and eateries,

Perfect villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

From the point we contacted Caroline to book the villa through to the end of our holiday, there is nothing we could fault. Gary and Ralph met us and made us very welcome. The villa is exactly as depicted in the photos and is clean, comfortable and well equipped. In fact it is better in lots of ways - the master bedroom is fantastic and opening the curtains to the view of the mountains is something we won't forget. Externally the space is fabulous with plenty of places to enjoy sun and shade. But it's the views that make this villa special - from every angle they are truly beautiful and we have never stayed in a villa that is so quiet and private but walkable to a village. That said the walk isn't for the faint hearted (renember your torch for the way home!) but it only takes 15 minutes to get to the village and it's worth it - we had some lovely meals and it is such a friendly place. The other point is the great location if you want to sightsee - Granada, Malaga, Córdoba and Seville are all good day trips. Overall we had a fantastic time and would thoroughly recommend Casa Colina.

We met Gary and Ralph in the village and they guided us to Casa Colina. The last part of the drive was along a bumpy track but what awaited us was a beautiful villa with outstanding views and you soon get used to the driving back and forward to the road-so don't get put off. The villa has everything from inflatables for the pool to dishwasher and washing machine. The air-conditioning was a god send and it was great to have a good night sleep in comfortable beds. It's difficult to put into words the the views that await you when you arrive but it was one that you would just love to have back home. Casa Colina is about 25 mins walk to the centre of the village but I used to cheat and I would park alongside the church and walk down to the centre. However the younger ones were more than happy to walk all the way. The caretakers - Ralph and Gary - were just amazing and will help you from advice to great places to eat locally to escorting us to the local medical centre to translate the problem that we had. The villa is close enough to visit Cordoba and Granada approx 1.30hrs drive but worth it. Also don't forget some time out in Malaga and the caretakers will tell you great places for a sherry!! Love it. This was a family holiday with age group of 25 to 56yrs and consensus from us all was that this was the best holiday ever so thank you Caroline for allowing us to have chilled out experience. I'm now hoping to revisit - fingers crossed.

The Coast/Beaches are approximately 40 minutes away by car.


Car Hire is essential. Malaga Airport = 40 mins. Granada Airport = 90 mins. Colmenar = 3 min (10 mins to walk). Comares = 15 mins.


Colmenar is approximately 3 minutes away by car but can be walked to in roughly 10 minutes. However, the walk back is a bit of a steep climb through the streets of the village.

Further Details:

Colmenar provides Banks, local shops, a small Supermarket, Bars and Restaurants, 24hr Medical Center and a Weekly Market. We will provide a Welcome Pack with basic essentials and an Information Pack to make your stay more pleasurable. Casa Colina will have WIFI available from 2014.
