About Jan Deman

We are a Belgian family who bought Villa El Carmen from British owners who have been living there permanently for over 4 years. Since then, we have spent all our holidays at El Carmen and we haven't had but very good comments from the people hiring the villa. We appreciate direct contact with you, so we will surely reply to all your mails, and demands for information. We are willing to consider any special request you might have.

Jan Deman purchased this villa in 2012

Why Jan Deman chose Canillas de Aceituno

Villa El Carmen is

- extremely well located, in the mountains and still close to the sea.

- in perfect condition

- fully equipped, since the former owners have been living there permanently and left everything.

- offering perfect privacy, and still the British neighbours are just a footstep away

What makes this villa unique

The quietness and the breath taking views make El Carmen a unique place. The 600m² terraces with private pool and complete outside kitchen and the 6000m² garden with olive - and almond trees will ensure that you enjoy the Andalucian climate and all it has to offer.

But also inside, the villa offers everything you might need for a remarkable holiday,

Guestbook comments from the owner

"El Carmen is like a battery to us, where we reload each year in February and March" - Albert & Sue Crabtree from Oxford.

"No place to experience Andalucia and the Spanish life better then at El Carmen" - Philippe & Marleen Bouquerand from Lyon.

Great villa, amazing location, place to return to.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location, surrounded by mountains, relaxed seclusion. Lovely hilltop town of Canillas de Aceituno only 2km away with wonderful restaurants. El Carmen is a great villa. Well equipped, great layout, fabulous pool, lots of places to sit outside. This has to be one of our favourite places we have stayed. The owner added the personal touch of calling us a week before we arrived to answer any questions. He also has a good local team to look after the villa and you if you need it!!!!
