New house with private swimming pool set in a finca of 8,000 square metres, in the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda-Almijara. Privacy & calm assured.
This really is a superb location in which to spend a holiday. For those seeking a relaxing family holiday amid wonderfully tranquil scenery this villa offers the perfect setting. Reached by 800 metres of rough track (a normal car hire is suitable), the house is set in a finca of 8,000 square metres, in the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda-Almijara.
Casa Las Jaras is a newly constructed villa with private pool (8 x 4m 1.3 - 1,9 m deep.). It has a delightful feeling of comfortable seclusion about it -yet it is perfectly situated for visits to the Málaga coast, while the historic city of Granada would make an excelelent day trip. It sands near the old Moorish village of Archez, approximately 30 minutes from the coast, and is set in the magnificent landscape of the Sierra Tejeda mountains, surrounded by vine-covered hills and a valley sweeping down to the sparkling blue sea in the distance. The surrounding area offers excellent opportunities for walking, particularly in the cooler months and Spring.
All on one level, this house is ideal for anyone looking for a lazy, relaxing holiday well away from the madding crowd but near enough to the villages of Archez, Canillas de Albaida and Competa for enjoying a night out in one of the many bars and restaurants.
The front shaded terrace has a built-in barbecue at one end and is ideal for outside dining whilst enjoying the panoramic views of the countryside (Natural Park). The Natural Park Sierra Tejeda-Almijara is a carefully preserved area of spectacularly natural beauty teeming with wildlife including deer, mountain goats, hawks and eagles. As well as heaven for nature-lovers, the park is also a walkers paradise. For a day on the beach, the delightul resort of Nerja is not far away - the town offers a choice of sandy beaches, and a visit to its famous caves is also well worthwile.
Casa Las Jaras and the swimming pool area in particular, is in an enviable location, taking full advantage of the sweeping scenery and the hot Andalucían sun, tempered throughout this area by the altitude and the fresh mountain breezes. Its geographical location and the beauty of its scenery, makes this area a wonderful place for a holiday at any time of year.
For those who like to combine the usual holiday pursuits of swimming and sunbathing with some history and culture, there is plenty to see in this area.
Discover the real Spain!. Unspoilt countryside, magnificent mountain views and glorious weather!.

Just returned from this wonderfully equipped villa. It is away from everything, peace and quiet at all times, but within easy driving distance of the many white hillside towns of the region, and only 30 minutes drive to the popular coastal towns. Would recommend a big shop before arriving at the property. The owner very pleasant and very informative, easy instructions to follow to meet him so that he can show you the way to the villa. An ideal holiday destination if you require an undisturbed holiday to recharge your batteries.

We have just returned from this Villa and spent a relaxing week in this superb area in this lovely villa. The villa was very clean, well equipped and well designed. The area is great for walking and sight seeing, certainly off the beaten track but that was the attraction. We gasped when we first saw the views from the villa, it is in the mountain looking down a valley to the sea. We had a rainy day where we were in the clouds but then spent the evening drinking sangria in front of a log fire - brilliant. It has no near neighbours but you feel secure because of the decorative bars on the on the windows. We visited in November so didnt use the pool but had several breakfasts outside looking at the views. Will definately go again for a relaxing break. Many thanks Sebastian.
From the moment we arrived this villa surpassed our expectations. The villa itself is very well equipped and comfortable. Sebastian met us and took us to the property as it really is off the beaten track which is exactly what we were looking for. The villa is really secluded and we could have happily not left the property for the week. Total privacy, no near neighbours, beautiful views across the hills to the sea, lovely clean pool with a comfortable shaded terrace to sit and eat out outside. Our children spent many happy hours in the pool and playground, and given the choice to stay at the villa or find a beach they chose to stay at the villa, that,s how good it was.
lovely area for BBQ, although you need to stock up prior to arrival with supplies as it is a bit of a trek to the nearest big supermarket. We had really good directions and found the shops and meeting place very easily.
We did venture out on our daughters 8th birthday to the water park (Aquavelius) behind the shopping centre which was a nice size given that our children are quite young.
We had a wonderful week in this lovely place and would highly recommend it to anyone seeking peace, privacy and relaxation in beautiful surroundings.

We stayed in June 2010 at Casa Las Jaras. The villa was as described clean, very comfortable, well equipped and in a lovely position. The pool and terraces were perfect for private sunbathing, swimming, playing and outdoor dining. The coastline is about 25 kms away but the inland regions are much more interesting with some stunning scenery and pretty white villages. We enjoyed evening walks around the villa spotting eagles, buzzards and hawks overhead. I would recommend this villa for those who want to be in comfortable pleasant suroundings away from the crowds.

Wij hebben erg genoten van het comfort in en om het huisje, van het prachtige uitzicht over de vallei en de rust en de privacy. Zelfs begin april was het er overwegend prachtig weer. Zwemmen in het eigen zwembad was nog wat fris maar toch een aantrekkelijke en welkome afwisseling bij het zonnebaden. Boven op de berg ƕ autominuutjes) begint een wandelroute in het Nationale Park. De wandelroutes zijn nog niet heel duidelijk aangegeven maar met wat richtinggevoel verdwaal je niet zomaar en kun je er prachtig wandelen in de omgeving over bergflanken met schilderachtige witte dorpjes en mooie vergezichten om je heen. De keuken is groot genoeg om voor een week boodschappen te bergen en kokkerellen is er geen straf met alle moderne apparatuur aanwezig! Ook lekker barbequen buiten en gezellig borrelen bij een warme en uitstekend vlammende openhaard horen helemaal bij het optimale vakantiegevoel. Absoluut een aanrader dus wat ons betreft.
Entry to the house is into the light and airy, open-plan living/dining room with fireplace, T.V. set (with T.V. SAT) and DVD player, radio with audio tape and CD player the well-equipped kitchen is separated by an American style breakfast bar.
The two bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin) have built-in wardrobes and are comfortably furnished with top quality beds. A baby cot and a highchair can be provided on request at no extra cost.
There is a large fireplace and also an air conditioned machine (cold/heat) in the living room and several electric heaters -mobile radiators- and fans for the bedrooms and bathroom, making this an ideal choice at any time of the year.
The ceramic floors, beamed ceilings and good quality furniture are not only indicative of the owners good taste but also their eagerness to ensure that their guests are comfortable in their surroundings.
