This was our second stay at Casa Escondida, and it was just as beautiful as we'd remembered !
The addition of wifi and the new wet room were a bonus.
Its the perfect spot to unwind and enjoy time with the family, only 10-15 min drive to the beach and shops, what more could you ask for?
Thanks to Julian for sharing this little piece of heaven

Family from Solihull, United Kingdom Jul 2016

A wonderful place, off the beaten track with breath taking views. Very well equipped with everything you need. Great outdoor space with plenty of shade and brilliant pool. Julian, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful and we enjoyed the generous welcome pack waiting for us in the fridge on arrival. We went for 2 weeks and loved every minute visiting nearby towns and had a day in Malaga which is to be recommended. We shared the time with our 21 year old daughter and her friend and they also loved it. Highly recommended for those wanting peace and tranquility. We will definitely be making a return trip.

Family from Carshalton, United Kingdom Aug 2015

Amazing holiday, the villa is fabulous and we've had the time of our lives. The owner is very helpful and very friendly as well as the people who manage the property. We felt very welcome. The fridge was full to save us the trip to the shops the first day. We enjoyed our stay so much we didn't want to leave. The house is simply beautiful, the views are amazing and the kids enjoyed the swimming pool. Loved it.

We have just returned from a brilliant holiday at Casa Escondida . Of course wed read all the great reviews, but even then we were still amazed at just how lovely it was ! The views down the valley to the sea are fantastic and they never failed to take our breath away. It was so quiet and peaceful, just the sounds of the crickets and the odd cock crowing made for a uniquely relaxing holiday.
Stuart the key holder met us promptly and guided us up the track, which was definitely nowhere near as daunting as mentioned in some reviews.
We managed it in the dark after a nice meal out in Iznate.
Everything you might need is available, and the villa is nicely furnished inside and out. I loved the hammock!
We stayed with our 2 daughters aged 11 and 5 and they both loved there time here too, the pool was just the right size for the four of us. They were thrilled to find some games and also have some english kids channels too !
We spent most of our time enjoying the villa, but we also enjoyed a couple of days at Torre Del Mar and also Nerja beaches. We took the children to the waterpark down the cost in Mijas Costa, as it offered more for our youngest it only took 45mins and it was a great day out.
If your thinking about booking this villa for your next holiday, dont hesitate - Youll love it !

Thank your for opening our eyes to a Spanish holiday with a difference. We have had many holidays in Spain, but always in busy resorts on the coast. Last year we thought we would try a more tranquil holiday, and your casa lived up to all our expectations. Just a nice distance from the coast, should we want to go to the beach, although must say we were more than happy to chill by the pool, and just pleasing ourselves. We enjoyed our stay so much, we are hoping to bring our friends next year. Kind Regards John and Barbara Nunn

Dear Julian I would just like to let you know how wonderful our holiday was at your Caseta. The remote setting of the property is absolutely wonderful and the stunning view overlooking the valley and out to the sea in the distance is just what we were hoping for. My wife was really taken with the shaded covered terraces and the wonderful flowers and shrubs that you have surrounded the property with. The tinkling of the goats bells as they go out to forage for the day was really the icing on the cake as this was about the only thing apart from the Catalan farmer tending his vegetables and grapes, that we were aware of. This is what a REAL Spanish holiday was about. Once again many thanks for the use of your Caseta. We shall let a few of our close friends know about this wonderful jewel. Kind Regards Graham and Sally Webber

The Villa is our family holiday home, we have spent the last 10 years improving it to the standard we would expect, but it is not run as a business, just to help us cover some of our costs. The basic rule is there are no rules, just chill out and relax. Hope you enjoy the place as much as we do.
