About the Owner

Hi, We're Peter and Hazel. We've been married 46 years this year and have two children and two grandchildren. We recently retired and have enjoyed our villa very much for the last 4 years (2016 now). We love our mountain views and have visited some beautiful villages locally. The steaks in our local restaurant - El Charco, known locally as Miguel's are amongst the best you'll find in Spain and is a place we dine in regularly when there. Our guests agree with us and enjoyed them too.

Beautiful private villa, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa with friends and two young children. The villa really has everything you need, and was a home from home, with fully equipped kitchen etc (it even has a washing machine!) It easily slept six of us, the beds were really comfortable. The lovely wooden shutters were amazing at keeping out the morning sun - so we all got a lie in! We ate outside all the time (although there is a large dining room) as the weather was beautiful and the views are amazing. The stone built BBQ was excellent, and really well used. There's a large supermarket 10 mins away, but we loved the fresh bread from the little shop in the village, which was cheap and stocked most essentials. The swimming pool was perfect, and the two children were in it all the time. We took days out to the beach just down the hill at Torre del Mar and further along at Nerja. Even in the summer holidays, it wasn't overcrowded. The village of Los Romanes itself is very pretty - you can walk to a wooden kiosk which looks over the lake and sells drinks at very reasonable prices. The steak house is also very good in the village (children were welcome everywhere we went). In all, we loved our stay at the villa. We would recommend it to any family or group of friends. Its a great location, and obviously very well cared for by the owners. We will return here for sure.

Perfect getaway, with stunning views of the hills and not to far from the Village

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Peter and Hazel for the use of your lovely villa. The villa is equipped to a high standard with everything you could possibly need. The views from the terrace are lovely and we often watch the birds of prey in the late afternoon. The views of the Lake on the way to the villa are out standing!! The pool was a welcome break from the sun and the breeze was very pleasant so it never felt too hot. The local steak house in the village was fantastic and we had several visits to it. The Villa is not too far from the main road so site seeing was a must. Torre Del Mar was one of our favoirtie places. Everyone in the village was very friendly and the 2 shops had everything you could need.

Hope to be back soon !

From the Owner

We searched high and low for some time to find the property we wanted until we finally saw a picture of Casa Los Olivos. The views are wonderful, the pool is great and well placed, we have added some new plants and brought the garden, top and bottom, to life with the addition of bougainvillea, both red variety and now brilliant deep mauve-pink. Casa Los Olivos has a lovely rustic feel to it but is up to date and a comfortable, happy place to be. We hope you feel the same as past guests and come to stay too.

Further Details:

Firstly, you don't have to worry that you have to buy lots of bottled water. You can drink the water in our villa perfectly safely as it comes direct from the mains and is of excellent quality and has no unpleasant aftertaste.

In the village there are 2 small supermarkets one is Coviran and the other is our local Co-Op. There are 2 bars (1 serving light snacks and sandwiches). 3 restaurants -1 serving some of the best steaks in Spain 1 serving Indian cuisine and 1 in the local hotel serving nouvelle cuisine. If you take a 10 minute drive to Don Manuel, you will have a good choice of restaurants serving a wide range of Spanish and English dishes. You'll also find 2 supermarkets including Arkwrights which is very English stocking mainly English products and an Ironmongers, butchers, hairdressers and oriental bazaar. Nearby is the village of La Vinuela that also has restaurants and cafe bars and an ATM machine.

Travelling on the A356 you will soon see a left hand turn marked Canillas de Aceituno. In the centre of Canillas you will come across a good restaurant called La Maroma where they have a large oven that serves great roasted lamb Sunday dinners with all the trimmings. There is a good choice of alternative dishes and their scallop starter and other seafood is not to be missed. They are open most days/evenings.

From the Owner

We are only a short walk from the village of Los Romanes, so you don't need to take the car if you're feeling like some exercise. The walk is pretty with great views and olive trees flanking the road. It is not unusual to see the locals come by with their goats, or riding their horses past the villa.
