About Peter and Hazel

Hi, We're Peter and Hazel. We've been married 46 years and have both recently retired from long active careers and found ourselves in a position able to purchase a second home in the sun for ourselves our children and grandchildren. To make life a little more comfortable in our retirement we are renting out the property when we are not there. Guests wishing to stay will find this a real home from home experience along with the wonderful Spanish climate and our mountain views are second to none.

Peter and Hazel purchased this villa in 2012

Why Peter and Hazel chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

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 an up to date and a comfortable, happy place to be. We hope you feel the same as past guests and come to stay too.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Reality is really as good as the photos!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa that certainly grows on you after opening all the shutters so the interior can be seen in its best light - very clean, well furnished and a kitchen that is so well equipped - apart from the usual things one would expect, the presence of kitchen scales and a deep fat fryer were a veritable and unexpected find! Best to read all the notes and advice before doing anything ..................... to say more would be a huge personal embarrassment and do no credit to the quality of the information in the villa! Bedrooms are a very good size all with wardrobes and with brilliant beds that bring new meaning to the word comfort. Outside the table and chairs offer both sun and shade during the day and are ideal in the evening for drinks and meals. The swimming pool catches the sun for most of the day. Views to the back are stunning particularly in the evening with the last of the sun highlighting the slopes and trees. You pass a few villas on the way to Los Olivos, but none are really in view from the villa. Only a brisk 10 minute walk to the village of Los Romanes - great bread shop, a couple of small supermarkets that sell the essentials (and some surprising extras too) .............................. and don't forget the "kiosk" at the far end of the village (or the first place you see when you come from the other direction!) which certainly seems like a friendly meeting place.

This is more than just another villa - it really is a home for the owners (Peter and Hazel) who spend six months of the year here. You will be hard pressed to find two more helpful and knowledgeable hosts - plenty of advice and help prior to our arrival which was really good. Peter's advice on how to play two holes at the Baviera Golf Club proved invaluable.

A wonderful 14 days in a lovely villa that did everything that it said on the tin!

Great villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay! The villa is located in a beautiful region with stunning mountains and lakes and not far from the coast. The villa was very well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. The pool was lovely and a welcome break from the sunshine to cool down a bit. The villa was air conditioned throughout to a really high quality and I fear it would have been quick sticky without it. Los Romanes is a lovely small village with a great view over Lake Vinuela. It has all the basics - a small supermarket suitable for daily provisions, a bar/kiosk and a really great restaurant. Our children are older so we didn't really bother with the beach but we had some relaxing days at the villa and trips out to the Alhambra Palace, a hilltop town called Comares, and a stunning boardwalk along the Caminito del Ray - all within an hour/hour and a half drive. We also managed a slightly longer drive o Gibraltar. All in all one of the best villas we have stayed in!

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 !
