About simon lumb

We moved to Spain in 2002 with our three young children with a view to giving them a Spanish education and a different experience of life.

We wanted a place which was accessible to the major airports yet retained a Spanish feel and discovered Almunecar.

simon lumb purchased this villa in 2002

Why simon lumb chose Costa Tropical & Lecrin Valley

We bought the house, primarily because of its superb position close the town and beaches, and particularly because of the stunning views. The house has been sympathetically expanded and modernised to provide a lovely base for a family holiday.

We have recently returned to the UK to be with our children. We have many fond memories of the house and Almunecar and trust that you will enjoy it too.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is private, secure yet not isolated. It forms part of the well regarded "Los Pinos" area which sits on a gentle hill overlooking the town of Almunecar and the Mediterranean sea. The property is fully modernised and has its own supply of fresh water through a private deposit and has a pump to ensure availability of water and pressure is maintained all year round.

The villa has ample private parking and is a convenient base from which to explore the Costa Tropical coastline and the whitewashed villages inland.

Beautiful, spacious, comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday here. The villa is perfect for eight people - loads of space. It is a really lovely, sociable living space, nice bedrooms and comfortable beds. Everything is attractive and good quality so feels like a treat to stay here. 4th time we have visited this area so that says it all! Love Malaga and Granada, the beaches, drives up into the hills and visits to the white, Moorish villages. Almunecar is a friendly, attractive Spanish town. It was great to be so near town this time for the young ones yet 'away from it all' feeling and gorgeous hill and sea views from the villa. No doubt we'll be back ! Thank you Simon and family

Lovely spacious villa

  • 4 of 5

A truly beautiful villa set in hillside location. Great views, large pool, lovely clean villa with all amenities needed for family. We loved the large open dining room and kitchen area and lazy days by the pool. A car is essential if you want to sight see but shops, restaurants and beach all pretty close by.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased you mention the space and cleanliness of the villa, and we agree that whilst Almunecar is within walking distance, guests do benefit from having a car so that they can explore inland and further afield.

Splendid villa in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Almunecar - this time we came back to spend four weeks to celebrate birthdays and improve our Spanish. The villa lived up to our expectations, it was very well equipped spacious and comfortable, with incredible views over to the mountains and down to the sea. The drive way is not for the faint hearted but nothing more than expected. The owners were easy to contact and very helpful during our stay. Almunecar is a very Spanish little town, lots of good restaurants, shops and excellent beaches. We look forward to returning in the future.

Fantastic family accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely villa with a large group of family including 4 adults, 2 babies, 2 children and 2 grandparents (!) and it was very suitable for us all. The villa was exceptionally clean and perfectly equipped for our stay and the owners were easy to contact if required and always helpful.

The steep driveway was a little daunting at first but we soon got used to it and it is all worth it once you see the unbelievable view you are rewarded with- we loved spending evenings dining on the terrace watching the sun go down.

Almunecar itself was perfect for a family trip - very easy drive from the airport and lots of things to do. The children loved the castle, the park, the little streets in the old town, the beach and the fantastic water park which are all within 5 mins drive!

Highly recommended.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just had 14 relaxing days at this villa. Spending many days out by the pool, until late in the evening, with wonderful views and cloudless skies.

Villa was well equipped, spotlessly clean and well furnished. There is more than enough room for bigger families, and the peaceful setting was perfect for our romantic getaway.

The owners were very helpful and communication was excellent.

The choice of supermarkets helped us for our BBQ shopping, several evenings were spent watching the sunset over the mountains from the terrace.

Gibraltar is a 2 hour drive away and Alhambra Palace in Granada is just an hours drive.

Highly recommend this property if you plan to visit this area.

A Wonderful Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely spacious villa. We enjoyed the spectacular sea views, dining out on the large terrace, and the good sized and well maintained pool provided lots of fun for all ages. Almunecar has a choice of great restaurants, bars, and beaches, and we had a lovely day out at the water park. and The villa is clean, nicely furnished, and has a very well equipped kitchen.The beds in all the bedrooms are so comfortable that the teenagers in our group found it difficult to get up before noon!

The villa owners could not have been more helpful and we had plenty of communication with them before our visit. The information they provided was clear and accurate and they were quick to respond to any questions. A fantastic place with kind and helpful owners, we recommend it highly and wholeheartedly.
