Villa overview - owner's description

This unique villa is elevated above the beautiful Lagos coastline and nestled amongst pine and 8eucalyptus trees. From its spacious covered porch and three terraces, you will enjoy a 180 degree southern view of the sun-kissed waters of the Mediterranean, and a panoramic view of the majestic peaks of the Sierra Almijara Mountains to the north. Enjoy your holidays at the Villa La Sirena while lounging by the pool watching the sailboats drift by catching up with a loved one over a drink on the terrace or combing the beach for seashells—only a three minute walk down the drive.

Surrounding area
Villa La Sirena is ideally located in a quiet residential wooded area known for its beauty and views. For those seeking seclusion, uncrowded beaches, and the charismatic beauty of Andalusia, Villa La Sirena is ideally situated. The area benefits from year-round sunshine while the ocean breezes and cover from the trees, keep temperatures pleasant during the summer.

The local village of Mezquitilla is a 10 minute walk. This seaside fishing village has beach-front restaurants, bars, cafes, featuring local fresh fish and other Andalusia delicacies. There is a local grocery store and trinket shop approximately three minutes by car and open seven days a week with freshly baked bread & pastries available daily.

La Caleta another fishing village is just a ten minute drive and has a port/marina with a further selection of shops, restaurants & bars and the always interesting open air market on Saturday mornings. Torre del Mar, Velez Malaga, and Nerja are all historic and vibrant cities each within a fifteen minute drive, and all featuring famous beaches, restaurants, shopping, and quaint plaza’s to enjoy a table side tapa or two.

Traveling 15-30 minutes inland from our villa takes you through the olive, almond and citrus groves to the Campos and several traditional white-washed villages.

You are centrally located for day trips to experience Spain’s Andalusian culture, art, architecture and cuisine easily accessible by well maintained highways leading to Malaga’s Picasso Museum (40 minutes), Rhonda, where Spain’s original bullring is located (2 ½ hours), Seville, also known as the Venice of Spain (3 hours), and the stunning city of Granada with the incomparable Alhambra Castle, just 2 hours away.

Villa La Sirena Details
Villa La Sirena is divided into two separate living spaces that are adjoined by a common patio as was typical by early Moorish architects. We refer to these distinctive living spaces as Side A, and Side B.

Side A
Side A features an expansive wrap around porch and large living area with a cozy fireplace that functions as a favorite year around gathering place to read, eat, relax, and entertain. Decorated in a stylish Mediterranean décor, the numerous windows from the living area provide gorgeous views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Side A’s living room comes complete with two large sofas, television, a DVD/VHS player (with a selection of movies for all the family), and satellite system.

A separate dining room with French doors, opens onto the patio, and comfortably seats 8 people. Next to the dining room is the kitchen which is fully outfitted, and equipped with a large refrigerator/freezer, ideal for keeping your San Miguel chilled. The kitchen has plenty of cutlery, crockery & glasses in which to prepare meals. Off the kitchen, is a utility room with a washer and dryer and a line to hang your bathing suits to dry.

There are three bedrooms. Two are on the main floor, and have built in wardrobes and bedside units with drawers. One has an en-suite bath with shower, and the other has a full size bath and shower just outside the bedroom door.

The third bedroom overlooks the patio and pool area and has an en-suite bathroom, and private balcony/terrace. It can only be accessed from the patio, and sits within a strand of trees which provides privacy from both villas.

Side B
The exterior structure of Side B features a three story, castle-like tower with a spiral staircase leading to the Master Bedroom and a roof top terrace that serves as a relaxing spot to watch the amazing sunsets and star-filled evening skies.

You enter Side B via the common patio and walk into a bright living and dining area with windows facing south to the sea. There are two bedrooms in Side B, and they are split over two levels. The downstairs bedroom is large enough to accommodate two sets of bunk beds plus a sitting area with large bay windows overlooking the rose garden and sea. The top two bunks are single beds and the bottom two bunks are each double beds.

A large bathroom with a walk-in shower and separate bath is located up a half flight of stairs from the bedroom and living area. On that same level, a small but fully equipped kitchen provides easy access to preparing and serving meals in the dining area or patio.

Off the kitchen, an internal staircase built within the castle tower takes you to the spectacular Master Suite with en-suite bath, and oversized balcony facing out over the sea. This is a breathtaking space where you will spend evenings gazing out at the fishing boats and listening to the steady crashing of the waves as you doze off to sleep.

Exterior highlights
The entrance to Villa La Sirena features a curved staircase leading up to a wrought- iron gated entrance. As you walk through the gate you will step into a historic Andalusian patio featuring Moroccan detail. This split-level patio is a common area for the two almost adjoining living spaces. A few steps up takes you to several landings—the top landing giving you access to a private pool with a sweeping view of the Mediterranean Sea. Next to the pool you will find a fully fitted outdoor kitchen and covered dining area large enough to seat 12. It is uniquely designed for entertaining groups and families and is perfectly situated with beautiful views across the water.

There are so many places on this property to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Costa Del Sol. Stroll through the beautifully landscaped rose garden with its distinctive flowering trees, and look for the two ideally placed hammocks each having beautiful views overlooking the Bay.

Enjoy!

Large Group from Aldershot, United Kingdom Aug 2016

We were a large group and Villa La Sirena suited us perfectly. Ensuite bathrooms for four out of the five rooms, comfortable beds, a variety of quiet places to spend reflective personal time and also areas for the whole group to gather. Good facilities, fabulous views, an amazing outside kitchen with a brilliant BBQ all set in beautiful gardens.

The photos of this property do not do it justice and the fact that it is laid out over three levels provides a feeling of privacy to all. Good knees are essential for the stairs in the property which certainly keep you fit!

The local area is quiet and is only a short drive from the beach at Torrox with it's lovely promenade and array of shops and restaurants and for those wishing to have a special meal out - we can recommend La Farola. The Monday market at Torrox is also worth a visit for everything from fruit and vegetables to ceramics and handbags! Enjoy!

Friends from Georgia, USA May 2016

The pictures on web site do not do the villa Justice! It was so much more than we expected!!!!
The views, the privacy, the layout were fantastic. There were so many different spots to sit and enjoy coffee in the morning or drinks in the evening.
I wish I could go back every year.
The little town of Nerja nearby was so beautiful.
I love the location of Villa La Sirena.

Family from Swanley , United Kingdom Aug 2015

Thank you so much for a fantastic holiday in your villa

Best wishes and hope you will stay with us again.

Family from Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom Jul 2015

The photos really do not do justice to this fantastic villa. We were 5 adults and 5 children aged 7-15 and the quirky layout of separate buildings worked perfectly as there was plenty of communal space, yet everyone could find a peaceful corner if they wanted to. The outdoor space was wonderful and where we spent all our time given the weather - the kitchen and BBQ areas close to the pool were ideal.
The villa is beautifully furnished with plenty of equipment and utensils and it was spotlessly clean when we arrived. Marie was on hand to show us around and was very quick to respond when we texted her with a couple of questions during our stay. The directions on how to get to the villa were very easy to follow and although the steep winding track up to the villa is a bit daunting on the first day (especially in a minibus!) we got used to it very quickly and given the views from the terrace, it was well worth it. We loved the area around the villa with the combination of sea, mountains and little towns and would not hesitate to return.

We are happy you had a great stay! Hope we will see you again.

Family from Wellington, United Kingdom Aug 2014

Website does not do it justiceExcellent facilities ideal for multi-generational family groups,the only proviso being not very suitable for small toddlers (one to two years of age), as rather a lot of steep steps.
Directions need up-dating as road numbers seem to have changed

Large Group from Ålgård, Norway Apr 2014

The propertys separate buildings made it ideal for the families within the family to function normally, whilst the large outdoor kitchen-barbeque-dining area adjacent to the pool was ideal for the big family meals.
The buildings are easy to keep clean, but the "main" kitchen was short on large serving bowls and particularly bowls suitable to take up to the pool area / outdoor eating area. Table knives were in short supply at the outdoor kitchen.

Rubbish and wildlife dont mix, and we missed a cat- and insect-proof bin to store the rubbish in for 24-30hrs so it did not bring ants into the house. It is a drag to have to empty the bins indoors to an unsafe bag outdoors and have to remove that each evening to the main bins 6-700m away by car. 12 people make a lot of rubbish, not least that all toiletpaper is in the bins too.

The local contact person, Ann Turner made an outstanding effort to ensure that things went smoothly and she deserves much credit for her admirable efforts and counsel.

We all 12 enjoyed our stay at Villa la Sirena. In age we were of the range fro 1 to 60 years. Everything worked at least as we had expected. The service from Ann was perfect. The house was clean and tidy when we came to the house which was equipped at least as we had hoped.

We were thrilled with our stay in this beautiful home. The views are "to die for." The home is well equipped, beautifully appointed, and very well taken care of. There's tons of room and privacy for all. We especially loved preparing our meals in the outdoor kitchen. Dning in the outdoor dining room, by the pool, with the view was spectacular! The location is also very convenient to shopping, restaurants and sight seeing. We can't wait to go back!

I have had the opportunity to visit Villa La Serena twice in the last two years and found it to be an exquisite property with unparalleled, top-of-the-world views. The separate "mini-villas" for sleeping offer privacy amongst guests, while the entire villa itself is set high on a mountain away from people and traffic. We wiled away many an hour sipping wine on the balconies with vast, unobstructed views of the Mediterranean Sea. Villa La Serena is a pristine, well thought out property, whether your choice is to "hole up" or venture into towns or countrysides as desired. The charm and high quality of the villa itself make it a pleasurable and easy place to stay, with full kitchens, a courtyard, authentic architecture and decor, and a full-size pool and outdoor entertaining area. Recommended with enthusiasm!
