Villa overview - owner's description

Casa Sophia is an ideal holiday home. Just off the main road and 5 minutes from Velez-Malaga, where there are reputed to be more than 100 hundred Tapas bars. The location of the villa has that wonderful coupling of two worlds. Set amid a magnificent rolling landscape from which one can see all of Spanish topography at its finest, for miles around, as well as Africa on a clear day. The sky at night at Casa Sophia is certainly a shepherd’s delight sandwiched between the stars that appear in abundance here and the dazzling view from below. This tranquillity is met, a short car drive away, with the town of Velez Malaga. A way of life long forgotten.

Although bustling with every day Spanish life, it is less touristy than one of the well known port towns. We have found this endearing and the locals kind and welcoming, like England used to be 40 years ago. Despite having a wide variety of restaurants, it is also nice to try out your own culinary skills with the local produce by visiting the lively indoor market in the old part of Velez, after having been for a delicious breakfast and fresher-than-fresh-ly squeezed orange juice at Antonio’s next door.

Near enough but far enough away from the world
Although having visited Velez on numerous occasions, each time offers something new, be it another restaurant, another shop, another beautiful church, another friendly face…there is always something to discover. And if a change of scene is desired, one can visit nearby Nerja, Frigliana, Torrox or even Granada which is only a one and a half hour drive and that includes Snow Skiing. Casa Sofia is ideally located as a central point to explore and enjoy Southern Spain. Please note that a car is essential.

If some serious shopping is on the agenda, El Ingenio – the air conditioned centre – includes the large supermarket Eroski, a wide variety of shops including Zara, Mango and Dunne’s Stores and several restaurants, cafés and a cinema. Across the road is a water attraction park and a little further is Torre del Mar which is another delightful town to discover all in itself.

Couple from Stourbridge, United Kingdom Aug 2018

Advert describes the property and its location accurately. Everything worked as promised in terms of getting the key codes etc. Property was clean and well furnished. Pools towels available. Would happily return to the same villa. The stay would have been improved if there were a washing machine available for guests use - but this is a very minor thing.

Family from Stanmore, United Kingdom Aug 2018

The property was clean, well maintained and just everything we could have dreamed of for a family holiday. A quiet escape, beautiful scenery, private, well-maintained decent size pool with everything we needed. The owner and his team were incredibly helpful and assisted us whenever we needed help etc.

Couldn't recommend this villa more highly to couples and families that want a remote location for private time.

Family from Crawley, United Kingdom Aug 2017

Had a fabulous time staying at Casa Sofia. A great villa, in a great location with fabulous views. It afforded good privacy as was not overlooked at all, and the pool and outside area were well kept and spacious. The villa had everything we needed for our holiday and was tastefully decorated. The owners were friendly and easy to contact and key pick up arrangements were easy. The bathroom facilities were a little basic and could do with a little T L C but certainly not a problem. Would definitely stay here again - a lovely little villa we felt at home in.

Family from Limerick, Ireland Jul 2017

A beautiful location. So peaceful and quiet. Outstanding views. The house is a no frills home. Clean and basic. But with views and an outside like it is , we only slept there.and the outside sells it.. A conservatory and a veranda To sit out at night... A very well equipped villa. And thank god for air conditioning...would highly recommend it and would def return again. A bit quiet for our teenagers but my parents and husband and I loved it... Nikki and graham were a great help.and are at the end of a phone if you need her. Excellent service...

Couple from Coatbridge, United Kingdom Sep 2016

Fabulous views, perfect pool and a simple but tastefully decorated villa. We loved our stay at Casa Sofia.
The villa is close to 3 small towns - Velez-Malaga, Torre del Mar & Caleta Velez, each with a different character. Within an easy drive of Malaga airport & good proximity to the motorway for exploring Andalusia.
Villa doesn't have wifi & limited spanish tv which was a positive for us.
The large patio gave excellent views out to the coast and across to the mountains as well as great bbq, shady seating area beneath a large pergola & of course the good sized pool.
We would definitely book again, one of the best villas we've rented in particular for the view & quiet but not isolated location.

From Nieuwegein, Netherlands Jun 2013

Nice, cosy villa, located on the side of a hill. Great terrace with large pool and outdoor shower, overlooking the valley, with Velez and Torre del Mar on the border of the Mediterranean: views are stunning! Property is very well equiped and nicely decorated. Watersupply may sometimes be troublesome. However hostess Sarah is just a phonecall away and solved any problem. Downsides are (to) firm matrasses and the bathrooms that do not have a windows, witch is a disadvantage for ventilation. This aside its a great place to spend a weeks vacation under the Spanish sun. We really liked it!
