Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 days in August this year. It was a once in a lifetime family holiday. The house and grounds are absolutely stunning, as was the weather. It was super hot whilst we were there - up to about 40•C.

Monica couldn't have been more helpful before and during our stay.

Our only negative comment is the 'smart home' system wasn't so smart and therefore it was not always easy to put the lights/ fans/ aircon on (tricky when it was so hot!) . It also felt quite 'big brother' as the owners can see when you are turning things on and off etc. There are also CCTV cameras so we had a running joke we were being watched the whole time. We are sure the owners have better things to do with their time.

All in all a great family holiday in and absolutely beautiful villa.

Owner's Response: I can assure you that I do have indeed better things to do than monitor 6 garden video cameras (there are none inside the house and the outside are for security, linked to the alarm system) or monitor what is on or off in the house. Some of the lighting in the house runs on schedules, which what may have given the wrong impression, it is all to be energy efficient.

Amazing house, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Casa Barco is an amazing house, we felt very comfortable as soon as we arrived.

The views take your breath away (even more stunning than the photos), wherever you stand around the villa either inside or out, you are totally blown away.

We loved that fact that there are many areas to chill out either shaded or sunny and lots of dining areas for different times of the day.

The house is furnished tastefully and to a really high standard, you cannot help but feel at home with the surroundings. You can tell that a lot of love and care has gone into making this villa a very special unique place.

The swimming pool is amazing and the temperature was perfect. We felt it was the best and most interesting pool we had ever experienced at a villa. We spent most of the holiday in and around it.

In fact we hardly left the villa all holiday, as we loved it so much.

Casa Barco had everything we needed and more, we really didn't want to leave!

We visited the two local beaches which were lovely, with plenty of restaurants to choose from. We also visited Frigiliana which was stunning and only 30 minutes drive away.

Thank you Monica and family for making our 10 days perfect!

Owner's Response: Thanks Colin, for being among my best clients ever and for booking again for next year. We will be very happy to have you and your family again, as we know you took care of the house as if it was your own. We hope your experience next year will be as good or better!

An extrordinary view in an extraordinary house

  • 5 of 5

What a view!!...more than 180 ° on the extraordinary Mediterranean Sea.

But also, what a house !!

A lot of places too chose for resting, inside and outside, for every instant of the day.

Materials are high quality and very nice : exactly as we like (we live in a very modern loft in Paris).

Very well chosen pieces of furniture everywhere in the house. (probably coming from Bali, as a lot of art pieces).

Can you imagine a table on a terrace sheltered from the sun almost all day long, next to the kitchen, and with a magnificent view on the pool, the garden and the sea, which can seat 20 persons and we were only 3 couples.

The rooms (5) are very comfortable and big, all with bathrooms, and the ones on first floor, with a terrace giving some more views on the sea.

A kitchen with all what is needed to cook and we used it a lot.

Finally, the garden and the swimming pool…

The pool is splendid, with its taupe paving which favors the temperature of the water.

We were there at the beginning of June, and the pool temperature was 28 ° at least, while the sea, was only 21 or 22 °. .

Malaga is very close: a lot of very nice pedestrian streets, as a lot of city in France should have it, and two splendid museums : Picasso museum and an annex of the Centre Pompidou.. And of course, don't forget to visit Grenada and the Alhambra, it's only 90' drive.

Thanks Monica for your welcome, and your help throughout our stay.

The house is all automatic (lights shelters and music) and is also manageable on Internet, and if you don’t know how to open or close all the shelters at once.. Monica can do it from outside…

Yes, we recommend this house, and will love to come again.

Beautiful villa

  • 4 of 5

We were ten adults celebrating birthdays and wedding anniversaries. The villa was lovely with scenic views and relaxing pool. Also had several different seating areas so you could easily keep out of wind or sun if wished. Nice gardens and good access to local amenities. Public transport to Malaga easy to use and very reasonable. Beach side restaurants with good menus.

Overwhelming - you just have to be there

  • 5 of 5

We were there, all three generations (13 altogether), to celebrate grandma’s 70th. Casa Barca was perfect with all facilities and views you can ever dream about – great house, lovely and spacious garden with a barbeque dining area, the great pool perfect for all ages and not to forget the sandy beaches just a few minutes’ walk away from the house.

We rented bikes in Ricon de la Victoria for local sightseeing and shopping and enjoyed the short bus ride to Malaga for added cultural events and sights.

Better than the pictures - a genuinely amazing vil

  • 5 of 5

A truly stunning villa. Amazing views, stunning pool area and beautiful furnishings. Only a short hop to great restaurants (tried all the recommendations and all were great). Would equally recommend staying in and enjoying one of the best views in Malaga. Rare that you rent a place that turns out to be better than the pictures.

From the Owner

We fell in love with the plot of land 13 years ago, and it took 10 years and an economic crisis to convince the owner to sell it to us and to build the house. There simply isn't any other property with these views in the coast, we regularly see dolphins jumping in front of the house! (video on request). We use the house ourselves but would love for others to be able to enjoy it as well. It is also very conveniently located for shops and supermarkets, as well as the beach. We can provide tips on activities, restaurants, etc in the area, and recommend guests visit the city of Malaga, which has gone through a major refurbishment and is now a vibrant city with plenty of cafes and restaurants. Day trips to historical sites such as Granada, Ronda and Sevilla are feasible and there are bike tracks and golf courses nearby.
