Villa overview - owner's description

Detached ground floor villa, and comfortable with well-kept interior. What a splendid place for a holiday. The villa is situated in the hills which provide it with a magnificent and panoramic view of the Mediterranean and cities Torre del Mar (15 km) and Vélez-Málaga (11 km). You will have access to a nice outdoor kitchen with barbecue. Make sure to keep paying attention, since the magnificent views will easily distract you. This is best enjoyed while floating in the private pool or from your sunbed on the lovely poolside sun terrace. Enthusiasts can play table tennis here.

This villa near Arenas (3 km), where you can find a bakery and small supermarket. Vélez-Málaga has a beautiful beach. Or would you rather take a dip in nearby Algarrobo-Costa (9 km)?

Please note: With a sports car or a reduced car we don't recommend to using the access road.

For walks from the house either backtrack on the road in direction Algarrobo. Take a left up the pass leading down to Arenas. At the highest point (look for the sign with the exclamation mark!) turn right up towards the castle\/ruin of Bentomiz. You can continue further towards the sea and return by catching the road up to the house (from Algarrobo). The walk takes less than two hours. In Arenas (also a nice walk down) make sure to have lunch at Juani's right before the City Hall. It's the one with a wild boar head on the wall (inside). It's cheap, no-nonsense food and you'll mingle with locals and farmers from nearby. For newspapers, maps and second hand books in several languages, visit the store on Plaza de la Paz (Calle Infantes 32) in Torre del Mar. For those who want to shop ecologically, there is a shop on the same square. In Torre del Mar we have a soft spot for Marisqueria El Yate - splendid sea food at a good price. Of the many chiringuitos on the beach, we especially recommend Victoria and Varela. Pizza and pasta at La Mamma II (Avenida Andalucía 63) is nice thing to do on a hot summer evening. They have an outside terrace. You mostly eat better in Torre del Mar, but don’t miss Nerja, which is really beautiful (and much more touristic). Ice cream on Balcon de Europa is a must. El Pulguilla (Calle del Almirante Ferrándiz, 26) is a really nice bar\/restaurant. They serve great tapas inside at the bar or meals on a huge outdoor terrace with a back door entrance from the very large outdoor parking space just east of the Balcony. Marina (on the square with the same name) is also recommended. Swimming: Torre del Mar is very local and atmospheric. Nerja has more cliffs and a more spectacular setting. And you can even swim on the beaches to both sides of the Balcony – right in the center of town. But nothing beats the beaches in the Nature Park starting after Maro (which has a decent beach as well). Playa Cantarrijan is a favorite - you walk or take the bus down from the main road. There are two restaurants on the beach – and some nudists in the water. Canuelo beach is wider and also has a good restaurant. Again: It’s a nature reserve, so park by the road and take the bus down. Enjoy!

The drive to the cottage is the first time very difficult. However, we were well received by the person who had the key with him, had a good explanation and was open to all questions and help. The environment is extremely phenomenal. The view you have in El Kedel is beautiful! The cottage itself is very nice and everything you need on holiday is present. Beautiful pool with beautifully landscaped garden and plenty of seating and lying options. We definitely recommend this and will definitely come back! The only downside is the way up which takes longer than you think, but this was absolutely no reason to visit the rest of the area. Tip Do not hesitate to book a 4x4 as a car because this is definitely recommended. We will definitely come back to El Kedel and will make a lot of advertising!

Beautifully located house in the mountains with lovely pool and stunning views over the valley and to the zee.Two cons - the road to it is a narrow, 6 km long road with bumps and holes and lots of bends and a piece of unpaved. Only for the more experienced driver and with robust auto.Dit limited something the possibilities, because you do not just get away for a message.We have a lot of relaxed that week and at the cottage cooked so for us it fell.- heart summer at night it remains quite warm and there are only fans in the bedrooms.Air conditioning would be more comfortable.All in all a very nice week spent there.

Gerhard-Le Gars Aug 2018

Beautiful villa with an exceptional viewThe house is beautifully situated and from there you have a phenomenal view of the sea and the mountains. The furniture (especially in the kitchen) are not the latest, but that did not bother us, as we were mainly on the terrace. The pool has a very nice size. Because the 30 minutes walk to the villa very narrow, Steep and bumpy, is definitely a 4x4 to rent. Our 2 week holiday could have been wonderful, if the pool would have been cleaned properly. On arrival the steward told us that he would come over once or twice a week to clean the pool. Already on the first day we noticed that both filters of the pool were full of leaves and the pool with every jump into the water polluted again. When the manager on the 4th day had not yet appeared for pool cleaning and greenish dirt had settled on the pool floor, we contacted him accordingly. Unfortunately, despite the promise, nobody came and the pool was always greener. Since we had no device, we could not even do the pool cleaning. We have the manager several times. Unfortunately, our requests to clean the pool, remained unsuccessful until the last day. In addition, the kitchen worktop was sticky on arrival and we found a moldy filter in the coffee maker. It's the first time we've had such a poor service with Belvilla!

Wonderful place for lovers of peace, space and privacy! Obv tips we had a 4wd car and that was not a luxury. The rough route gets used quickly, but requires good driving skills. The route via Algarobo is the easiest to drive (yep we have tried them all). With the manager we had very nice contact. A very helpful, nice man! The house and the terraces are fully equipped. Kitchen- bathroom and bed textiles are more than sufficient, and also a small base stock of consumables is present.From the master bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathroom you have a beautiful view of the valley and the sea. The house had just been refreshed with a new layer of paint, and looked well maintained. Highly recommended for those who want to relax, and occasionally want to go during the day!

Weyers May 2018

We stayed 3 weeks in El Kedel and have not complained for a minute. For those looking for peace and privacy this is a must. Beautiful view. Lovely pool. Fully equipped house.


Magnificent villa, very well equipped, well located, splendid view. Very good reception from the attendant. Spacious rooms, very well equipped kitchen with all equipment. No complaints except the lack of signage, just ask for information about the location of the villa. We quickly get used to the road

Huijsdens Sep 2017

Spicy task to find the house for the first time. The road to it is at certain points very dangerous and sometimes even almost impassable with a normal car. Fortunately we had a SUV (really recommended) so we got through it fairly. Upon arrival, everything seemed fine. Reception was good by Vicki, very nice smooth British woman who led us through the house. But after looking better, the house turned out to be poorly maintained and cleaned. Kitchen sticky and dirty boxes dirty. No hood in the kitchen, which makes the whole house for food long after cooking. bathrooms very fussy too. And shower soon after 2 minutes the water became cold again. Outside the furniture is very dated. stains in the seats dirty old pillows on the sunbeds. Also, there are no umbrellas and there is no possibility to shade in the day. You can not expect anything from the outdoor kitchen to have a gas stove of 2 pits that are apart from misery. Very dirty too. All the crates contain stuffed crates, but the crates were filled with dirty rusty water where the cooking utensils lay. There was also a wasp nest in the porch but we were told that it would be empty. However, the entire week had a huge amount of wasps, which forced us to go to the beach during the day instead of staying at the lovely pool. The pool is definitely a plus of the house. Well maintained and clean. There is little to no lighting outside the house so very dark in the evening. However, the view was also phenomenal. Certainly in the evening. Beautiful sunset behind the mountain peaks. All in all, if the house is thoroughly cleaned and cleaned. And after measurements of this time are brought to experience real luxury.

Trompert May 2017

Accommodation was excellent with lots of privacy. Accommodation is located some distance from the mountain. Spacious and maintained house and the items available were all good. Nice pool and you can enjoy the view over the mountains and sea. The road to it is a narrow road, sometimes bumpy and the last bit steep, but easy driving. Shops 30 minutes away in a big shopping mall. In the evening, going to a restaurant is a bit difficult through the narrow road in the dark. A good starting point for the beautiful nature and culture in the many cities.

Albach Sep 2016

The road to the house was a bad road. Experienced drivers make it. Older people will have more difficulty in reaching the house. However, in quiet ride you'll get there. In the dark it gives a lot more effort to get up.

Onkenhout Aug 2016

Nice, but late August is the most arid and dusty. Walking to the village Arenas because of the many hills and heat not recommended. Especially near the house you could occasionally spot a rat. The manager had the poison been happy with zich.Comfortabel house (where the air conditioning and hot water it would work properly), good food, beds and a very nice pool. There is no air-conditioning in the bedrooms, there is a fan. Supermarkets and restaurants are within 2 km (Arenas) but the road to it is so bad, that to actually do it only with a 4x4 properly. The beach is a half hour drive on a challenging route also.

Defraeye Jul 2016

nice weather, food and beautiful uitzicht.Avontuurlijke drive to the cottage!

Koestering May 2016

In May 2016, we have family stayed a week in this property. Truly a place for tranquility. A large and deep pool and stunning views of the Mediterranean. Somewhat less suitable for small children due to the deep pool and the lack of a fence of the plot which is quite steep slope.

Whole week of sunshine, warmth, peace, quiet, privacy, wonderful pool, almost on top of the mountains. Beautiful view! The last piece to the house is impassable; very steep slopes on unpaved bumpy winding roads. The distance of 7 km to the sea making an awful lot longer than you might expect. Service from the host was fine! A little more shade around the house would be welcome.

R.L.J. De Way Aug 2013

Very comfortable house with beautiful views, privacy and a lovely private pool! The unpaved mountain road to it is a small adventure but also that part of Andalusia went. The coast is let you experience the traditional Spanish life and hospitality but especially near the Moorish mountain villages in the immediate vicinity. Worth repeating!

M. Kalmijn Jul 2013

Hilltop house with stunning views over the sea and the hills. The house is built stylish and modern. Large living room, nice kitchen, air conditioning, beautiful terrace, nice pool, and an outdoor kitchen. The house is located far outside the village on a hill with similar properties, mainly British expatriates. The ride from village to house is tricky and very bumpy. The beauty of Nerja is 45 minutes away and the Axarquia Valley is around the corner.
