About Monica Lozano

We are a British / Spanish couple living in Madrid, who finally managed to build the house of our dreams.

Monica Lozano purchased this villa in 2013

Why Monica Lozano chose Malaga City

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.

What makes this villa unique

What makes this property unique is the calm of living right in front of the sea with 180 degree views. We have furnished the house as our home and the garden offers multiple spaces to enjoy the views and just relax and unwind. It is always painful to leave!

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We left the house more than 10 days ago but it is still in our minds... What a place!! Everything in this house is perfect. The view alone is worth the trip. The house is projected to give you all a beach house can offer combined with modern furniture and appliances. The pool is an invitation for a family reunion. I felt a little confused about their power system in the first day but in the second day I got used with and in the third day I was thinking to have the same system in my own house... Monica is perfect as a host. She is very helpful and fast. Very polite too. Thanks for sharing this amazing property with us!

Relax with incredible sea views and dolphins

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed at this perfect place and there was plenty of room to relax and enjoy! The house itself is impressive with spacious bedrooms, and lounge area for the evening. The main reason to go to this place is for the 180 degree perspective view of the Mediterranean. There are several outdoor areas to relax and enjoy; of course by the infinity pool, down in the herb/aroma garden, in an amazing outdoor lounge area with oversize sofas or on the terrace. Whilst we were there in June, both in the mornings and evenings, we also saw pods of dolphins breaching a few hundred meters in front of us which was spectacular.

In terms of the area, the restaurants and bars are very much locals and we found it better going further East. There are 2 restaurants that are recommended in the welcome pack that are great; one called 'Mulse', one of the first bars/resturants you come to as you walk down the steps and along the beach walkway which is more upmarket than the rest of the places, and Kiko's which we were told by locals is the best fish place in Malaga and is a little more laid back with sharing plates rather than specific dishes. There are also pizza and pasta places but these are the best places we visited.

The 'Mercadona' supermarket is a short walk down the hill (approx. 3/4 mile) and has everything you need. If you are walking, take lots of bags and go with a few people as the walk back up can be a good workout. Otherwise it's a quick journey with a car.

Other than to go to the supermarket or the odd meal out down at the beach, it is the only reason you would not want to be at Casa Barco. This is a spectacular place and we will be back again soon!

Paradise on earth

  • 5 of 5

We have been to many places in the world and Casa Barco is definitely one of the best places you can go to.

The house is extraordinarly well thought, with every room looking towards this incredible sight over the sea.

The region is also one of the most spectacular ones in Europe. The wonders of Greneda, Sevilla, Cordoba...are just breathtaking.

We could only have wished to stay longer in this paradise on earth, the balcony of Europe.

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!
