Beautiful Villa With Stunning Views Of Lake Viñuela And The Mountains Beyond

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Nov-2016
Villa in Los Romanes, Lake Vinuela, Costa del Sol, Spain - 3 Bedroom Villa with Private Swimming Pool

Quiet and private location with breathtaking panoramic views of the Sierra Tejeda National Park and Lake Viñuela. Well located for visiting attractions, ranging from Ronda in the West to Granada (including the wonderful Alhambra Palace) in the East. Alternatively, there are some fantastic 'typically Spanish bars and restaurants. A short 20 min drive takes you to the coast, a major shopping centre and the bustling Spanish seaside resort of Torre del Mar and its famous fish tapas bars!. Further afield, Granada, Seville, Cordoba, Antequera and Gibraltar are all within travelling distance either by car or train. Malaga itself, the birthplace of Picasso, is only 40 minutes away and well worth a visit (don't just drive past it on the way to the airport!). In the winter, you can go skiing at the well-equipped resort of Solynieve in the Sierra Nevada, which is just under 2 hours drive away.

A lovely tranquil base from which to explore Andalucia.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very restful stay at Los Romanes, even though we fitted in day trips to Granada, Cordoba, Ronda and Malaga. We also had a very mystical visit to Comares in the lifting fog - all highly recommended. We found the pool and the terrace was a great place to unwind, eat and play games. A few quibbles that moved our star rating from 5 to 4. We never mastered the television so we did without that. We could not get the CD player to work either so we used the DVD player which diminishes the sound quality. Also worth considering investing in some better quality mattresses and air con in bedrooms to aid with better sleep. We loved the Venta El Charco on our visit - it is well advised to book. Nerja was our coastal town of choice - nice cafes in Plaza de Espana for coffee, churros etc.

a beautiful villa, not overlooked with an amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

The directions to the villa were great, it was easy to find save for the last turnoff as it was off the beaten track and you wouldn't even have known it was a road at first but we did find it within minutes. The villa itself was gorgeous, the view really was to die for and we never tired of it. The kids (aged 9 and 7) loved the pool. We did have a problem with the filters not coming on first of all but David was quick to come round and sort it. The kitchen was well equipped. The photos don't do the interior justice to be honest, its very spacious.

The outdoor terrace was lovely, I spent a lot of my time there reading and considering the view... very peaceful.

You do have to drive to get to shops or restaurants but it does say that in the write up and we knew this before we arrived.

There is a Lidl within 20 mins drive and you can stock up with everything very cheaply from there for bbqs etc (v nice rose rioja)

The only negative for us was that the air conditioning is only in the lounge. The fans aren't really enough in the bedrooms in late July and August in our opinion, it was very hot. Saying that it certainly didn't retract from the holiday and I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa if you want to get away from it all and have total relaxation.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 1 week, myself, partner and 2 year old son. We couldn't have asked for a better first holiday. The gate to the pool was a god send, as was the shaded terrace. The villa itself was spotless and had all the necessary facilities, the DVD player was a god send for our little one meaning when the sun was too strong he could sit and enjoy a dvd while we could soak it up on the sun loungers. We used the bbq most days and nights which is another nice touch to this beautiful villa. A car is necessary as there isn't much around (walking distance) but apart from that I would definitely recommend for families!

Many thanks for our wonderful stay. We don't want to leave!!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home but with a view and climate to die for. Such a relaxing break with the Velez shopping centre only 15 mins away. Great walks above the villa as well as around the lake with breathtaking views. We would thoroughly recommend this to our friends and family.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Good instructions on how to find the property. The villa was well equipped and very clean. There were stunning views to the lake & mountains, and

the surrounding area has walks in the mountains, around the lake or on the beach. We enjoyed our stay in the winter & would love to return.

Breathtaking surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Superb location, stunning scenery and a modern well equipped villa. My husband and I and our two teenage sons enjoyed a relaxing, chilled out fortnight at this villa. There are plenty of small villages and places to explore nearby - car essential and a small amount of Spanish desirable! We enjoyed exploring and having lunch out during the day and cooking/dining alfresco at the villa in the evenings. Having stayed at many villas in this area over the years this was by far the best equipped. The customer service provided by the owner and his agents was superb. We would definitely return to this location and this villa.
