Surprisingly better than the photos and description
Villa Los Chaparros is absolutely stunning! Montse and Neil were there to greet us and show us around which was lovely. The house is not just a holiday home so it is beautifully maintained and and every detail has been thought about. From the lavender in the drawers to toys for our youngest child - Montse has everything covered!
The position of the villa is fantastic with amazing views, a fabulous pool area with hot tub, sauna, pool house etc.. Our kids had a great time exploring the grounds, swimming and playing padel.
The inside of the house is super comfortable and has air conditioning, proper kitchen and plenty of space.
We had an amazing stay and I would honestly recommend this place to everyone.

We knew the home of two previous stays and immediately felt at home. Hassle-free reception. Beautiful environment.
Very nice house. With many sheltered places. Also many possibilities to enjoy the sun. Quiet area. Our children enjoyed themselves with the padel track and jaccuzzi. Unfortunately the pool was too cold, but given it was February, acceptable. The house is centrally located for excursions. Just to drive somewhere was already beautiful. Driving through the mountains gives peace. We visited El Torcal, among others. Impressive! So many impressions. In short, a house with peace and yet with much to do.
That was - despite the bad weather - an excellent week in Andalusia. After an hour's drive from Malaga we found (family with two boys aged 16 and 17) at the end of an olive-lined road around nine o'clock Los Chaparros. After opening the gate, the lanterns lit up and via a magical driveway there was the beautiful villa. Our hostess (Montserrat Oriol) was already ready in a beautiful Spanish dress. Because we would arrive late, she had offered us to get some groceries. It turned out that not only baguette, milk, cheese, wine and beer had been taken, but Montse had also cooked soup, baked a cake for us and prepared all kinds of products from her garden in the fridge. There were deliciously prepared olives, figs, jams, grapes, grapefruit juice and hummus. We were amazed and immediately felt more than welcome. The villa itself is beautiful, well maintained and spotlessly clean. The garden is truly breathtaking with many small corners, seats, vistas and fully integrated into the landscape. We have been allowed to visit several villas over the years, but Los Chaparros stands head and shoulders above it. Particular attention has been paid to all details, both inside and outside, the class radiates from it. The paddle tennis court turned out to be a real attraction for our sons. Neil, the partner of Montse, offered us to introduce ourselves to the game. That was really nice. Our hostess and host stayed for a few days in a residence adjacent to the villa. We did not experience this as disturbing because both were very discrete. Moreover, both were very helpful and very pleasant company on the contact moments.We really enjoyed our stay, visited the Moorish town of Antequera, walked in El Torcal (both reachable within 30 minutes) and on the path of the king (Caminito de Rey ) walked. Malaga and Granada are also easy to travel, but we have decided the remainder
After driving the small roads to the villa, it was a fantastic fine arrival in a very well kept and beautifull driveway. Furthermore we had a very warm velcome by the owner. During our stay, the owner made sure everything was alright by us via mail.
The villa is marvellous and it has a luxurious feeling to it. The surroundings are simply breathtaking with a magnificent view over the beautiful landscape.
We've had a very lovely holiday at the Villa Los Chaparros, and would like to revisit the place in the future. We certainly can recommend this place to anyone, wanting to experience Andalusia at its best, in luxurious sourroundings.
WOW!! Fantastic warm, wonderful and friendly hosts. The house was absolutely fantastic, we could not ask for anything more. Amazing! The scenery...breathtaking! Will we come back? YES YES YES
Very warmly received by the owner of the house! We were offered a nice glass of cava on arrival and the owner had prepared a flan for us! Super friendly lady and gentleman !!! The house and all amenities are super and everything is immaculate! It gave us a really nice holiday. We will definitely return!
Very nice house and nicely decorated. Beautiful garden and beautifully situated in nature
We had booked to spend our golden wedding anniversary with our family in a special location. We were not disappointed. The Villa and location were magic. A very special place. It was well prepared and we were given a special tour of the property by the house keeper. We congratulate the owners on such a wonderful Villa.
We arrived late, we landed at 19.50. Dinner was therefore a problem because we had a 14 month baby with us. However, the owner had finished a delicious soup! And 2 bottles of Cava. (Everything on 😀) She has not won the best host award. The house is fantastic, nothing is missing. Lovely pool, sauna and jacuzzi. And not to forget the paddle track. The surrounding area is very beautiful, though remote so that a rental car is absolutely necessary.
Breathtaking environment, beautiful villa with all amenities, very equipped kitchen, excellent, warm welcome. We enjoyed families with young children especially from the very large, fully fenced garden, the lovely swimming pool, the hammock, the tennis court ... The hostess was very friendly, discreet and went out of their way to make us have a wonderful holiday.
The impression on arrival was very good. We just found it not too close to the King's Walk (which was really the reason we were there). It is necessary to travel almost for an hour by mountain roads until the arrival. Another thing we did not like is that the owner stayed one night staying in the same house. It is true that it had its own entrance, but through La Cocina it had access to our area. You have at your disposal a room that is not usable by guests and in case of going 7 or 8 people two of them have to sleep on a sofa bed in the pool house
Reception super. View is stunning all around. Accommodation stylish, lots of charm. With great care and taste. Interesting location.
The Villa was absolutely fantastic! Beautiful views and very luxury in every details. The owner Mrs Oriol was the best host. We are very pleased with our stay at “Los Chaparros” and we would gladly recommended this Villa to everyone. We hope to come back many times.
A fantastic house with stunning views. Furnished all the comforts of voorzien.Smaakvol. Almost a shame to maken.Het trip was a wonderful week.
Stayed with 4 adults and 2 children July 2016perfecte reception had the Spanish, English-speaking owner if help is desired it is also becoming accessible perfectly kept house fully equipped views over pool disturbing factor was the barking dogs in the area from the sun ondergingdus sleep with windows closed but air-conditioning during the day you do not hear them had great holiday!
We had a very good holiday in Los Chaparros. This villa is beautiful. It is the native home of the hostess, luxuriously appointed, well maintained, super pool. The view is beautiful. The villa is situated - everything is there for a good relaxing holiday. The hostess is very attentive and welcoming. They had us do some shopping because we arrived late. Everything about our vacation was in order. Recommended!

Lovely home, every detail has been taken care. A gift to be allowed to stay here.
We had a wonderful stay thanks to all "first in a house decorated with taste where painting and" art await you. The house is dressed with care and quality. The pool, jacuzzi, tennis court and sauna are of "high quality. The service and the action taken by the owners and their knowledge make us feel almost at home. In addition, a meeting followed make we really feel pampered. Would recommend without hesitation. Thank you for the best vacations our family has passed through you.
It is best to understand this villa as someone's home that has been lovingly built and furnished over a number of years to a very high standard. So you are not staying at a purposely manufactured holiday villa but someone’s proud HOME that the owner will let you enjoy when they are away.
We are a family of four, with two teenage boys and found this HOME to cater for all our requirements from the outdoor Pool, Jacuzzi, Sauna and flood lit Tennis/Paddle courts. The garden is fully landscaped and is a delight to wander around and is thoughtfully lit at night. At the right time of year the owner will invite you to share in some of the planted vegetables/fruit should they be ready to pick along with a fully stocked herb garden. (As is the generous nature of this owner throughout our stay).
The interior is also fully equipped with electronic blackout shutters and fully controllable A/C in all rooms. This provides a comfortable stay even with a stone cracking 40degC outside. (It is noted there is a wood pile and indoor fire for those more inclement seasons).
There is also a full 5MB Wifi, iTunes streaming TV and many worthwhile books/publications throughout the home.
The area is in a quite mountain rural location that affords beautiful unspoilt vistas and provides a very private environment (safe too with a sizeable electronic gated perimeter). During our stay no one sustained any insect bites, so helped towards making it a very relaxed holiday.
Worth noting there is a small shop some 10 mins walk that stocked 90% of all that we required, plus 15min drive to La Joya there is another small shop plus bakery and restaurants. The local selection of cakes are simple divine (why do our supermarkets not import these bundle of heaven is beyond me!) Antequera (20 min by car) you will find many well stocked shops, bars and restaurants. The drive contains some twisting hill roads so suggest a level of competency at driving would be preferred.
Beyond this then well planned day trips to Seville, Granada and Malaga can be made. A trip to the nearby mountain range of the Torcal should be made, that will be suitable for all abilities.
Spending large amounts of money on the unknown can be a daunting choice, but I do not regret making this choice and I hope to be able return one day.
Bottom line is this HOME will provide you with a very comfortable and relaxed holiday, the rest is up to you -)
We were there from 4:01 to 11:01 in this magnificent villa. A very nice property, somewhat hidden in the hills near Antequera, somewhat secluded from shopping and major cities, but those who seek peace and relaxation is the right place. With tennis court, sauna, Jacuzzi, pool, fireplace and barbecue area, the villa can not be desired - we'll be back!
Great reception and lokatie.We had to get searching because we did not have the right coordinates that we had received, but a phone call to the owner does wonders.
Our stay at the beautiful house we enjoyed very much. The outdoor area with its large landscaped pool and the paddle tennis court we could use extensively in our summer vacation. From the different terraces always found a shady or sunny spot, just as you wished it. The owner of the house has personally welcomed us warmly and given lots of good advice for near and far. The house is off the beaten track but so central that can reach all sights of Andalusia. On request, a nice home help comes to support.
Lovely lovely care home with a lovely garden in a haven of peace. Owner very sweet and caring. definitely recommended for a relaxing holiday.
Very warm welcome by the owner, it had put some errands done since we arrived after closing of shops, and a soup for us. House was spotless everywhere, everywhere! Delicious with private bathrooms (multijet) showers. Beautiful pool with a cabana while with toilet, shower and kitchenette, super convenient. The house was broken anyway handy with lighting, electrical outlets and switches, etc. on the spot where you expect it. The paddle-/tennisbaan we frequently use when it was dry outside. All in all a wonderful stay. Even if it was very wet outside, we could at least enjoy a nice living room and large kitchen where we could cook delicious! Highly recommended!
For a quiet vacation away from the tourist bustle
