3 bedroom villa in Andalucía, Spain
February 2020

My very first impressions were not good the road leading to the villa left me extremely worried, it was a very narrow winding in the mountains and it got a lot worse the closer i got to the villa you had a shear drop at one side not a road you would want to travel in the dark, unfortunately i had no choice if i wanted to go out in the evening , there was no indication about this on the details. The agent that meet us was very pleasant and helpful. When I arrived at the villa itself and saw inside I could not fault it, it was as described in the details, i would go further it was better than i expected, the villa was very clean throughout, it is set on two floors with a lounge area on both levels with TVs the upper floor having the Kitchen, one twin bedroom and a double bedroom, large Family Bathroom, lounge and dinning room with access to the sun terrace, the gardener had just tided up by the gardens and cleaned the splash pool. The views from the Terrace were great especially in the evening watching the sun set. I did enjoy my time at the villa. I wish I could have said this without my other comments, that would be unfair on others , in my mind this property is not suitable for the disabled because of the steepness of the drive and the amount of steps or for family's with small children the ground to the right of the building has a extremely deep raven next to it and very little to stop someone falling down it, there is also a tree house which would entice a child to try to get to it with possible disastrous results

4 bedroom Costa del Sol villa to rent
July 2019

Lovely villa! Great views fabulous pool, everything we needed, Tony was very accommodating and helpful, wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this villa we were three couples and two children and was plenty of room for us all. The only thing that must be pointed out is even though the village of Benalmádena Pueblo is very close by there is a very steep hill to climb to get there, but a totally stunning village when you get there.

5 bedroom holiday villa in Andalucía, Spain, with private pool
July 2019

We had an excellent time in the Villa la Sirena, 12 family members of all ages celebrating a 50th Birthday. Facilities were excellent, slight problem with the electric tripping when catering for a large number but nothing we could not overcome. The pictures on the website do not do the property justice, we would thoroughly recommend.

3 bedroom villa rental in Andalucía, Spain, with private pool
June 2019

This is a nice villa with all you need for a relaxing holiday away from tourist areas, but still within easy driving distance of all. Rental and communication was simple with good directions to villa from airport, but advise the access road is steep and rough so be prepared upon arrival with a decent rental car. The villa is comfortable and airy with aircon to all rooms, a great pool and patio area with excellent views down to the sea. Catering is made easy with a good selection of cooking facilities including a small but serviceable barbecue to enjoy outdoor cooking in the cooler evenings. We went with a 6 month old baby and cot/high chair were supplied upon request. The pool was great with ample sun loungers and cushions to accommodate all and the property has several opening doors that provide a cooling breeze throughout the day. We enjoyed our 12 night stay at Casa Las Yucas and visited many of the sights of the coast and region, Torrox Costa is a particularly nice beach with a good promenade and plenty of restaurants to enjoy good food, it never appeared to be that busy. Well stocked supermarkets are within easy reach by car at Velez-Malaga and Arenas and the coastal resorts nearby. A good quality, private, quiet property, with excellent views that is situated away from busy tourist areas.

Villas in Andalucia

A mix of magnificent coastline, stunning hinterland and rich cultural history is what makes Andalucia one of the best holiday destinations in Europe. Andalucia, also pronounced Andalusia, is an autonomous community in the south of Spain boasting gorgeous landscapes, endless stretches of postcard beaches and more tourist attractions than you’d ever think you'd need for a holiday. From the traditional food and customs, to the friendly locals, festivals and varied landscape, this beautiful region has much to offer. Andalucia lies on the southern coast of Spain, with ten airports in the region; the two main being Malaga and Seville, with direct flights from the UK taking no longer than 3.5 hours.

As Spain's southernmost region, Andalucia’s beautiful year-round climate makes it stand out from the rest of the Iberian peninsula, boasting over 700km of soft sand beaches, warm waters and some of the most glorious costas in the country. With a history spanning over 50,000 years, discover a wealth of ancient remains, cultural gems and architectural wonders such as The Alcázar of Seville and The Alhambra, in the province of Granada, which is one of the most visited monuments in Spain. It's a region of tradition, where you can relax during siesta or go wild during fiesta, dance the night away in a vibrant Marbella nightclub or enjoy an authentic flamenco dinner show in Malaga. Immerse yourself in the traditional Andalucian way of life in Cordoba, Cadiz or Jerez de la Frontera, or revel in the metropolitan atmosphere of modern Málaga city, where you can enjoy everything from seafood paella to exploring the works of one of Spain’s most famous artists at The Picasso Museum.

Taxis are ideal for getting around the cities, while Andalucia is well connected with plenty of bus routes and train services. Think alfresco dining, festivals and historical sites. Festivals occur year-round, and the most popular are located in the provinces of Granada and Cordoba. With an enviable number of World Heritage Sites and historic monuments, Jaén, Granada and Seville provinces are the perfect destinations for those seeking some culture. It resonates with culture, colour and history, with countless historic monuments, museums and festivals. Comprised of eight provinces, the coast is the most popular for its Blue Flag beaches, golden, white and dark sands and calm waters of popular resorts like the Costa del Sol and Costa Tropical. While the Atlantic kisses the shores of Huelva and Cadiz provinces to the west, the provinces of Malaga, Granada and Almeria have the Mediterranean sea to enjoy.

The diverse landscape ranges from the snowy, rugged mountains of the north and south, to the sun-drenched, family-friendly coast, where the beaches of the Costa del Sol and Costa Tropical provide the perfect backdrop for a relaxing summer holiday. Discover a land of contrasts where you can snow hike on Sierra Nevada in the morning and sunbathe on the La Rijana beach in the afternoon. The Sierra Nevada is a hikers' and skiers' dream, while the rolling hills, cliffs and rivers open the door to countless outdoor activities and adventures, such as surfing, paragliding, climbing and kayaking. The pleasant climate provides the perfect opportunity for golf, with over 100 world-class courses to choose from. Enjoy the breath-taking scenery and warm atmosphere of southern Iberia and take home memories to last you and your loved ones a lifetime.

Whether you're looking to explore the sites, catch some rays or just sit and watch the world go by, Andalucia is an ideal Spanish escape destination. The region will have you exploring new places and at the same time making you feel right at home.
