Villa overview - owner's description

3 bed villa, private pool, garden. The property sleeps 7 (to 9 with double sofa bed). Located on a private Finca, in a stunning, rural mountainside location.

The villa is located within Rocabella Villas, at the top of a hillside with unspoilt views over the Guadalhorce valley. The villa has a privileged viewpoint and position on the Finca and is not overlooked by any properties.

There is a restaurant on site at the front of the Finca (5 mins walk from the property), should you desire to dine out in the evenings, rather than dine at the villa.

Just 1 hour from Malaga airport by car, 3km from the famous El Chorro and Camino del Rey and a few hours from historic cities worth a day trip such as Granada and Seville.

El Chorro is best known as a world class climbing destination, with thousands of routes and grades to suit all climbers. Within easy reach of Malaga airport, the area welcomes climbers from all over the word, throughout the year - especially during the Winter and Spring seasons when the mild, dry weather is perfect for climbing.

One of the most famous routes for visitors in the region is along 'Camino Del Rey' (Kings Pathway), an adventurous tour through the steep gorge of El Chorro. For climbers in El Chorro the Camino del Rey is a spectacular, once in a lifetime experience.

As well as rock climbing, the region offers an abundance of other year round activities such as hiking, mountain biking and paragliding, all set within the beautiful Andalusian countryside.

The city of Malaga is 1hr away from the Finca. Cordoba and Granada are just 1.5 - 2 hrs away by car and Sevilla 2.5 hours - all places worthy of at least a day's visit if not more.

There are several markets in the nearby town of Alora, as well as lots of choice for eating and drinking.

We provide all our guests with local tips and advice on how to get the best from the region, including special discounts on activity packages, as suits their needs. Whether you are looking for a restaurant recommendation or a great place to go climbing for the day, we want all our guests to get the very best from their stay and enjoy beautiful Andalucia!

Family from Mexico, Mexico Jul 2014

The Villa is well located, rather easy to find, and with stunning views. The Garden and the infinity swimming pool are also really private and secluded, so it is a great place to relax. There are also many activities nearby, including opportunities for "extreme sports" in the El Chorro area. We stayed there for a week with 2 couples and 2 young adults (total of 6 people).

However, when arriving at the property, we were rather disappointed, as the villa was "REALLY RUSTIC", with poor quality furniture and really cheap materials in the kitchen (the cutlery and crockery was of the type you get for free when you fuel your car in a BP-petrol station). There were also not enough towels to spend a week at the pool (there was 1 medium-sized and 1 really small one per person), and the need to bring 6 beach towels from Mexico city to Andalucía wasnt exactly part of what we had expected. The Villa was also much smaller than what we expected from the photos, there is enough space for 4 people, but with 6 it felt really crowded.

So in short, a great place, a nice area, stunning views, a nice pool, but the owner should really spend more money on materials and the outfitting of the villa, to avoid a feeling that it is done "on the cheap" to maximize profits for him rather than maximize the holiday experience for the people paying.

Very nice villa in a very nice location, views over the valley were stunning and the local area was very pretty (El Chorro and Ardales lakes being only a short drive away.) The villa is quite secluded so a car is necessary to reach the villa as well as getting around. The pool is a good size and the house has all of the facilities you would expect. The master bedroom and the front room also have air conditioning which was nice on the hot nights. There wasnt much communication from the villa owner, when we arrived on site we had no instructions on how to collect the key, although this was soon resolved with a quick phone call to the owner, who was friendly and helpful. We were then greeted and welcomed by the same person we spoke to on the phone a few hours later, letting us know about all the nearby amenities. This was the only time we saw the owner in our stay, some people may not like this lack of contact but many people may like the privacy we were given and that we were just allowed to get on with our holiday without being checked up on every 10 minutes. I would recommend the villa to any group of people looking to get away and to spend some time in the Andalucían countryside. The area is very secluded and about 45 minutes drive to the Costa Del Sol, however if you are more interested in seeing more of the real Spain this villa is for you.

Charming place, hidden in the gardens. A few rural villas with different occupancy, so you can find a compatible place to stay with your family or group of friends. Very good place to stay for the lazy holiday, or to take a nice walking trips around El Chorro Natural Park. There is also a nice restaurant nearby, with local dishes and a perfect view, so you don’t have to cook if you do not want to.
