Luxurious villa in stunning location overlooking the sea, private large heated pool, generous terraces and lots of privacy. Close to beach, restaurants, bars.
Luxurious private villa in a stunning location overlooking the Mediterranean, Salobrena castle, and Sierra Nevada Mountains. Private large heated swimming pool (4mx10m), several terraces, and plenty of privacy.
Our holiday home sleeps 6 people in 3 perfectly appointed bedrooms and has 2 bathrooms. The villa offers excellent living space with a lounge, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen. Master bedroom has Double size bed with an ensuite bathroom. Second bedroom has a King size bed. Third bedroom also has 2 single size beds. The villa is situated in an elevated position in the prestigeous and private urbanization of Monte de los Almendros (Mountain of Almonds), on the hillside above Salobrena, with superb views of the coastline, Salobrena Moorish castle and village, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
The villa is located in a very tranquil location. There are several terraces, open and covered, 6 sun loungers, patio furniture, and BBQ. Outside you will also find a nice mature garden with many fruit trees.
Beaches, bars, shops and restaurants are only few minutes away. Our holiday home is located between Almunecar and Motril (real Spanish towns), with easy access to Granada, Cordoba, and Seville. Golfing is also nearby and the restaurants are excellent and numerous. The seafood is always fresh, the wines are excellent and the prices are reasonable.
Our home offers a truly Spanish experience in a tranquil environment.
Location - I recommend you hire a car as this property is far from any shop or amenities probably 10minutes drive down the mountain on which the property is built. However you do have great views and the location is quiet.
Property - Only two snags held me back from rating this property as excellent.
The pool had some tiles missing which cut our toes.
The blind in the master bedroom and the one in the turret room at the top of the property were not working
The washing machine was broken for the duration of our stay however on the day we exited the property one was being delivered.
Neighbours – You will not see any there is sufficient privacy without feeling you are the only person on earth.
Summary – My barometer for the trip was the opinion of my children. They loved it so I would happily recommend but hire a car and expect to take 10minutes to get down the hill until you learn to drive Spanish style!
The entire property was totally renovated at the end of 2014. All pool missing tiles were replaced and pool looks as good as new. All blinds were all replaced and are new. Brand new washer & dryer were also installed.

Aptly described luxury villa with stunning views. We had a very comfortable stay.Plus points:Lovely pool with underwater lighting, stunning at nightVilla light, airy and cleanGood furnishings and all necessary equipmentLovely gardens - big fig tree and herb garden - even strawberries!Adequate shade at any time of dayChoice of pool inflatables delighted our son!Suggestions:For safety, add barrier at top of external stairs next to pool edge?Amend website description which implies tennis court is private, but is actually in the communal area.Shower curtain and patio door curtain in master bathroom would be nicePity no Bougainvillea! (I love it) but the wisteria and stephanotis are lovelyWe would reinforce warnings to lock all doors when in the pool - we had wallet and passport stolen on last day.

Alec Henderson - "The whole family enjoyed the week in Salobrena. We found the villa very well furnished and equipped with everything we needed. We felt that it was in a perfect position, with the sea shimmering on one side, and the distant snow-covered peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the other. We will definitely be returning on a future occasion."
