Casa De Cuesta Roman, Iznate

Villa with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and swimming pool in IZNATE, Spain

From £418 per week

Delightful rural villa. Totally secluded in stunning surroundings with panoramic views, yet close to all amenities.

Overview

Casa de Cuesta Roman is in an idyllic spot in the countryside, with panoramic views in all directions. The house has three spacious double bedrooms and with two WCS and shower rooms 6 can be accommodated very comfortably.The absolute joy of this house is the outdoor lifestyle it provides with a terraced garden, patios, and the pool. There is a built in barbeque outside with a full supply of utensils and acrylic crockery, a second fridge/freezer, and a sink. So you can prepare and clear away meals entirely outside without numerous trips into the house. There are many different areas outside where you can catch a moment in the sun with a book and a glass of wine ; the courtyard at the front, the delightful areas alongside the pool, or the “hammockry" - the perfect spot for a snooze in the shade!. Inside the house provides well appointed comfortable accommodation with a living room and a well equipped kitchen with a gas hob oven and microwave. Walkers will also love this spot. Unlimited 3mbps internet is available, as is internet TV

The Location & Scenery
Everywhere has the most amazing views across the Andalusian countryside towards the mountains of the Alpujarras (Driving Over Lemons territory) and the nearby white village of Iznate. You can relax and hear birdsong interrupted only by the goats and/or church bells. The finca is located about a 15 minute drive, through olive and avocado groves from the main E15 motorway. However once back to that motorway, Malaga airport is about 20 minutes drive, and the beach is just two minutes, . Nerja, a beautiful coastal town with the famous Balcon de Europe, is about 25 minutes drive .There are are huge supermarket complexes about 10 minutes in either direction. There are also many nearby villages with local markets, tapas bars etc., and some excellent restaurants are also within a short drive. There is a book in the house making various recommendations (the owners are real foodies!) The finca also provides an ideal location for exploring the Andulasian cities of Granada (with the Alhambra Palace – c.1.5 hrs drive), Cordoba (with the Mesquita – c.2 hrs drive), Seville (c.3 hrs), Ronda (c.2hrs), and Malaga (c.35 mins).

A diamond in the rough..

This is a villa of two halves and dependant on the time of the day or night you arrive depends which you get first.

We arrived at midnight and were met by Lara and Oscar on a quiet road where neither of us had mobile phone signal....we were then lead a short distance to the town of Iznate and from that point onwards we followed a beaten dust track which lead to what appeared to be nowhere - Picture an American teen movie when the teenagers are lead into the wilderness never to be seen again - ok a little over dramatic..


We arrived at the villa in the dead of night and the old adage that things often look worse at night would appear to have been true.... but as they also say, things look better in the morning and boy, oh boy are they right.

The views are stunning along the valley as is the peace and solitude.

The diamond to this property is the Pool and outside space - this is amazing and there really is no need to step inside the villa again during the day and then returning only to sleep.

The location of this villa is quite frankly a bugger to find when you arrive in the dead of the night and we had some difficulty in finding it the first time we left and returned but on the plus side we did meet a Spanish Santa look a like and through the international language of raised voices and hand gestures we realised that we were lost and had to turn around...

This is rural Spain so local ants can be a pain but clearing up after yourself, immediately, is a must, as is a Sat Nav; as at least you can return to the the village of Iznate and then follow the directions you are given.


Our family unit loved our stay for a week and my partners daughter swimming improved ten fold and we put this down to the good outside area and atmosphere or her desire for naked swimming, either way she had fun..

Had a very pleasant fortnight at the property. Everything was as described and i have never stayed at such a well equipped villa.

The pool side catering facilities are excellent. The route to the villa is a little daunting the first time, but it does become easier, we zipped up and down without a problem. You can walk to the village in 25-30 mins. Lovely views all around the villa and very quiet although plenty of agricultural activity going on during the day. The hammocks a big hit and the flowers and pink tree (sorry not a gardener) stunning, you can pick out the villa from miles away.

The village is beautiful if not just a little too quiet. A couple of bars, but very well maintained. We didn't bother with the two shops as we tended to go to the medium sized supermarket at Chilchers and stock up every 2 or 3 days. Very handy for trips to Malaga and Nerja. Beach only 15 mins away (Benajarafe - has all the amenities without the heaving masses). Dead easy for Malaga airport.

All in all, one of the best villas we have experienced in Spain.

We thoroughly enjoyed are holiday at Casa de Cuesta Roman. The villa was perfect in every aspect.

The outside areas had so many fantastic views. I loved the outdoor kitchen and the extra bathroom outdoors was great for the kids, no soggy wet walks back into the villa every time they needed the loo. Various shaded areas were a must as it was so warm, but there was somewhere for everyone to chill out in the afternoon for a doze or a bit of reading. Also meant kids were not constantly in the sun, which is a worry at the best of times. The bbq was fab, and there was a supply of charcoal etc which we topped up before we left. The pool was a perfect size, not too big, our youngest daughter's swimming was greatly improved by the end of the week. We loved listening to the birds and church bells ringing in the distance, so relaxing. We also got to watch baby birds hatch (obviously from a distance). The kids loved exploring outside the villa with there dad, and picked a few limes. There was also almond trees and peppercorn trees on the property.

On the day we arrived the owners had kindly left some food supplies and essentials to start us of before we did a big shop, so kids got to use the pool straight away. And there was no mad rush to get to shops. In fact we didn't need to go shopping until the next day, as we had dinner in the village which was lovely.

The bedrooms were all comfortable, and spacious. Fans in each of the rooms which we did use on the last two nights as it was becoming hotter as the week went on.

The indoor kitchen was excellent, so well equipped, I don't know were to begin. But it was definitely home from home, plenty of spices etc! Lovely touch was the recipe book with so many of the owners own personal recipes as well as cut outs from various magazines and recipe books.

Wifi was fab! I know we shouldn't be checking are emails etc on hols but its one of those things we all seem to rely on nowadays. It also meant the kids could use there WhatsApp to keep in contact with there friends and granny and granda. There was also a good selection of books, games, dvds and cards to keep us all entertained.

The drive from Iznate to the villa was at times a little scary, but we got use to it after a few days. My husband is a confident driver and we drive in rural parts of Ireland every summer so are use to dirt track roads. We went out almost every day. However I would love to come back and not sightsee. Just stay in the villa and chill out.

We loved our holiday, and came home very relaxed!

Thank you Tim and Bryony

Awesome villa in the beautiful place!!!!

From Farsoe, Denmark Jul 2013

A lovely villa in beautiful surroundings!
Owner being most helpful by e-mail before arrival and house manager an absolute sweetheart doing his most to feel us welcome and guiding us.
The kitchens have all the cooking equipment you need and more, e.g. an electric fruit extractor and a fryer.
Pool area is really nice with four sunbeds and plenty of chairs. Also the hammocks were very popular for those who didnt want to lie in the sun. With a temperature of 41 degrees in the shade and not a cloud in the sky the areas with shade came in very useful!
Beautiful decorations all over the property and easy to tell the owners have taken a big effort building many spots to sit and enjoy the views.
The road to the house is quite a challenge as it is very steep. We had a group C car from Helle Hollis, a Skoda Citigo, which just barely made it with four people in. I was very happy I had the full cover insurance as the chassis sometimes touched the median strip of the gravel road. Next time I will book a stronger car – because I do hope to have the opportunity for another stay :)

From Taunton, United Kingdom Oct 2008

This is a really lovely villa, exceptionally well equipped and finished with great vision and imagination. The setting is perfect if you want to relax in beautiful, quiet unspoilt Spanish countryside. Our children (aged 6 and 3) especially loved the pool, the hammocks and the outside shower! Its much better even than the photos.

Casa de Questa Roman is Exellent place for relaxing and privacy. Not so far from beaches and all services. House was very good equipped and this patios "summer kitchen" was extremely handy. We will recommend this place warmly.

What can I/We say???!!! What a fabulous place! We were awe struck by the beauty of its surroundings and delighted with the facilities, the accommodation, the pool, the hammockry, the gorgeous little breakfasting patio and the dragon flies became increasingly confident and were welcome company! The journey into the finca just added to the adventure. We have had the most fantastic time and were amazed by how remote and peaceful your wonderful little finca is, yet so close to the beaches. We tried the local sardines and preferred the uncommercialised beaches nearby. Our only comment, (which has been made before) is that the photos on the website simply do not do it justice, it is far more stunning than can be captured by a lens. Many thanks Jeanette August 2010

A big thank you from both of us, for finding and then letting other people share in your heavenly hide away. We really had a most wonderful week of total tranquility and comfort. The house left us wanting for nothing and the surroundings left us craving for more. In reading the house diary it was clear that you both had to work very hard to achieve your goal ! water supply , pool leaks , Pepes promises of manana, but you got there in the end and the whole experience that we enjoyed is a credit to you both. We will certainly be looking to return to Casa de cuesta roman in the future for more total chill-out ! Once again Many Thanks Chris & Jen September 2009

"In truth we could write a sizeable tome about your house, but, I will spare you the effort of wading through such an indulgence. As one does ,Annie read you visitor books and we were touched by all your efforts and energy that you both gave in such abundance to your casa project. Your manager, Stuart, is a star and I think with his dry humour, he would agree. We needed to stop, without having to be polite to any one or, to discuss the weather with other holiday makers and we achieved our aim. We are both so thankful to you and indeed feel privileged to have had the opportunity to stay in your stunning house. We loved every chair, every view, every and different part of your extended sitting-room outside. Thank you. Regards, Michael & Annie Cumbria"
