Location of the house is beautiful and the pool is amazing. However, the road to it is a huge disappointment. This certainly requires years of driving skills and driving in the dark is not recommended considering the many landings that you have to drive past and the bad road. The house itself is ok but not special. By the way, the airco was on the main bedroom on arrival. This was only fixed after our departure.
We had a fantastic vacation. The house has a fabulous view, good and clean pool, private terrace and some really nice caretakers. To get to the house, there are some steep hills, where our ordinary rental car needed to have A/C off in order to climb up! However, we had the most relaxing vacation ever and would definitely like to come back - but in a 4x4 )
We were warmly welcomed by the manager and escorted to the location. Long dirt path where you barely out of first gear, but to do good for us. To the coast it is short 30 minute drive. Beautiful house (except the kitchen cabinets inside) was clean and tidy. Beautifully modern. Really fully equipped, including good wifi and satellite TV. We found the bathrooms in terms of appearance and comfort are far post on the rest of the house. Moreover unfortunately in the morning still no hot water from the shower. We found the best bales that no bed is available. That was the single beds can not be realized by the shape of the mattress and the twin blankets. We also find it neat that are included in the price not the EUR 100 for cleaning or the cost of utilities, but that which is mentioned in the fine print. Fine you ask, but if there is not doable comparing prices. All in all a lovely home.
Beautiful location with sea views and the house has many luxury !!
Very nice house with a fantastic view of the terras.De road to the house is doable.
We spent a week in October when the weather in the house. The pictures describe the house very well. Nothing was missing mosquito nets, garden furniture, barbecue, kitchen equipment and even consumables are plentiful. Who needs a TV on holiday ... this is very small. The approach is demanding. At arrival we were taken, then we had our Nawi, which is also needed most. In addition, you need necessarily an SUV. The road is not really fixed and very bumpy, especially after a rain shower. The ride on this slope takes 20 minutes, because you can only drive very carefully. I recommend 4-wheel drive. But the house compensated, the view is really great.

Second year in a row we have enjoyed a fantastic holiday in a beautiful house on this mountain. It is quiet, thick inorde and equipped with every comfort. We come back to the beautiful Andalusia ........
Villa Oliva is great. The house is large, modern and well equipped. Everything you could need for a home on holiday. Each bedroom has it's own shower and air conditioning. The pool is lovely 10m long and salt water. A really good feature in the summer, and our kids really made good use of it.
The views over the valleys to the coast are stunning. We really enjoyed staying here.
The obvious downside is the access road. Leaving the MA4111 road, you drive 4.0km on unpaved roads to get to the villa. Some of this is steep and many places have loose rocks. There are steep drops to one side of the road and no crash barriers. You do get used to it - and take it as fast or slow as you can manage. We managed OK in a normal hatchback car, but we wish we had rented a 4x4 SUV.
A trip to the shops and back is 45 minutes round trip. But equally, it means plenty of peace and quiet.
Lots of the villas in this part of Spain have similar roads so this is not unusual.
Then there is the dog. The house has a dog that is semi-adopted and will come up to the villa for food and water. If you like dogs that's great it was always around when we were there.
Would we stay here again - yes, of course - but we would rent an appropriate 4x4 car.
What a paradise! 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and everything clean. Also liked that a lot (bath) towels are so that you do not have to bring your own. The kitchen is well equipped fantastic, we took not miss! With small children I would not go here because the plot is there not good enough for pool is fenced and without fence and deep. The road to the final 20 minutes unpaved and spicy, especially if you do not have a 4x4. This can not quickly go to a store if you forgot something so right turn good for you there driving. Administrators very nice and attentive! Really had a lovely time! Will be back. Another tip if you are sorting out. Lubricate you with deet because there are little critters that big bumps can leave behind!
Our holiday was dominated by the poor access. We then but decided to stay for a few days somewhere else. The road is very bad drivable with a normal family car. The underside of the car hit several times by road, the sides are scratched by the withered roadside vegetation, an oncoming do not want to encounter, the car is covered in dust, the steep pieces are really dangerous, you drive as described a sloppy 4 km in first gear and it takes about fifteen minutes before you come across asphalt. We have not gedufd to ride in the dark, so this road a night out food was not to be ... Want to "In the morning just to get fresh bread, you bet that you are at least 45 minutes away ... You feel trapped in a castle, too bad. The managers are very friendly, accurate and punctual. Final cleaning costs 100 EUR. Previous tenant has presumably paid, I expect you you in the dust on the bedside table can not write your name ...
We enjoyed a week doing nothing in Villa Oliva! A beautiful swimming pool with stunning views, and a house that really all amenities. The decor is nice and comfortable. The fact that each bedroom has its own small bathroom is obviously very nice. The kitchen is great in appearance and equipment. For a very special holiday! The house was to hold, thanks to the fine screens so the windows were open late July also cool - and if necessary, thanks to the air conditioning. We met at the house very clean, and the (Dutch) managers were very friendly and behulpzaam.Een pleasant surprise was that you could rent. Wifi at a reasonable cost It was called out twice, due to a power failure in Arenas - but that's overmacht.Het road to the house is indeed very difficult, as also indicate other tenants. We nevertheless agree experienced worse, but I would recommend to choose if you often want to make a trip. Another house If instead you are up to a quiet period in a beautiful location, then Villa Oliva highly recommended!
Fine a week away been with our family. The kids really enjoyed the pool! We had lovely weather and explore the area.
A very enjoyable holiday in this well maintained cottage polite! Come here completely relax!
The house is well equipped and very tastefully decorated. Nothing is lacking. We have really enjoyed the salt-water pool and terrace overlooking the hills and the sea in the distance. But you have a minute about 15 minutes. Coming from a dusty gravel road take into account that we would not put off once again to go into this house. The supervisors on site are very nice and helpful. We give this House an assessment of 4.5 / 5 stars.
Very quiet location, you can relax super, super views to the sea, Driving over rough and smooth, but you get used to it.
We stayed a few days in the house, but have enjoyed it sooo much! The pool and the views were phenomenal, the house itself and impeccably clean! The ride to and from the house went in true rally style. In the beginning, with a frightened heart, but after a second third time we were experienced pilots. Although a handy 4x4 would have been managed with our Seat Altea also fine. We come back already, but for a longer period!
We have a super holiday behind us! The house was fine, as described on the website. The contact with the administrators was quite good, with tips and tricks :-) Also for our son of 11 months, everything was available. The quiet location and beautiful views are definitely a must!
Very nice villa with a large space, 3 bedrooms, each with bath, lots of storage space. Fully equipped kitchen. Air conditioning works in the winter state (like us) as a heater well, even Fußbodenheizung.Villaausstattung everything da.Pool too cold in winter, a small solar power system would help ... In the info for the access road should be noted that better should be used SUV.
We are late September to early October in Villa Oliva stayed. We were already near Malaga on holiday so we knew the area summit. The villa lived up to our expectations perfectly. Exactly as described. Modern, great views and a nice pool. We have focused our Casaoliva excellent entertained! The road to the villa was to be a lot less fun. It is a combination of sand, gravel and rocky substrate. The way to the villa which is enjoyable but we started a league! This was really the only way to travel to the villa which is enjoyable. We had already read that a 4 x 4 no luxury would be and this also we must agree. It is to do in a normal car, but a 4 x4 certainly makes it a lot easier.
Very nice house in a quiet location with a beautiful view. Access by a difficult road, 4 km c "is feasible with a classic car in 20 minutes, but the 4x4 is recommended. Saltwater pool very nice. Deco interior very tasteful, modern and clean.
You should definitely have a robust vehicle with increased Bodenclearance, otherwise take the car damage to the gravel road with many potholes, also is the arrival in brightness sense, the route guidance is not sufficient.
Lovely house! For your feeling in the middle of nowhere. That is a different person how you experience. Beautiful view.
Lovely house and great environment, only the way there (as everyone suggests) is less. To be a little comfortable to come is a jeep really necessary. Especially when it starts raining again ...
We have been here from Aug 30 -13 September 2008. 4 adults and 1 baby Beautiful holiday palace, fully equipped. Beautiful kitchen, swimming pool, etc. View fabulous! Very unfortunate that there are not only being essentially how bad the road to it is! We were lucky enough to have a very experienced driver. Unfortunately after one night storm was hardly the way to ride. Here we have some self inflicted through gravel and create, but the boulders were behind the fence of the house and we almost did not come off. Tip for future guests, take a car with four wheel drive, and listen to the weather forecast.
Scitterend a house with a great uitzicht.Echter the last 4 km are waardeloos.Leon and Tonny thanks for the excellent verzorging.M.vr.gr, Martine, Jeroen Heijmans and Lieke
11-11-2007Heb with my wife and two daughters had two great weeks in this beautiful villa.Een formidable view at Torre del Mar and the sea, quiet area in the mountains with a lovely private villa zwembad.De is neat and well cared for and fully voorzien.let called up at any car, a Jeep is not a luxury for the villa bereiken.Fam.

Be mentioned in the introduction aoll that one its assessment in two parts teilt.Der first part - The HOUSE The house is in its decor and the offered comfort a very good choice. We were traveling with our 15 year old son there and the fact that he had his own bathroom, was top. The pool also surpasses most offers in terms of the actual Pollgröße. They truly make the ability to swim (2 meters water depth) but also enough space to only once planschen.Der beach here has a meaning for us lost what hat.Die nothing to do with the second part still described below in shown internet pictures and descriptions are fully in überein.Wir would the house when it would be in a different place, once again for a holiday stay in the eye fassen.Nun we come to the second part of the holiday experience very "spoiled" us has . AWAY from and to HAUSDie description of the path to this house is more of an understatement but certainly in Ordnung.Der way, about 5 km dirt road / paths with many switchbacks and driving parts where you do not know what a around the next bend expected not only requires driving skills, but also an all-terrain vehicle, which we for happines
very pleasant stay in a luxurious villa with a view of the sea and the stad.Alles has a fine residence have always regretted that the mountain must pass a ompraktische road somewhere to go.
