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.

This villa is simply wonderful. It is spacious and very well maintained but its greatest asset is the outside space. Beautiful views, we spent many evenings looking at the twinkling lights of the city in the distance and watching shooting stars. The pool is large and extremely well maintained. The property is only a short drive to the main town of Velez Malaga, the El Ingenio shopping mall and the seaside town of Torre de Mar. We loved everything about this villa and would go back in a heartbeat.
Casa Sofia and its owners were brilliant. I cannot fault a single thing. Our flight from Southampton UK was delayed by 5.5hrs and our plan to arrive in daylight with enough time to go food shopping etc was dashed. It was a pretty stressful start to the holidays. Our children's faces when we arrived at the Casa Sofia helped make up for our delayed flight though. Everything about this place is awesome. Communication with owners was very easy, prompt, clear and welcoming. Almost don't want to write this review because I want to keep this Villa a secret ;-) Thank you team Casa Sofia.
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.
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.
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.
