Villa overview - owner's description

A beautiful, secluded house with a private heated pool, air-conditioning, internet & outdoor kitchen/dining facilities in an elevated setting of outstanding natural beauty with excellent access roads.

Casa Sofia is situated in an elevated position in a very attractive rural setting amidst an orchard of almond trees in hilly countryside. From the house there are stunning panaramic views of mountains across a beautiful valley visited by a variety of birds including birds of prey.
The house is equipped to a high standard. There are two bedrooms, both with air-conditiong/heating, two bathrooms, fitted kitchen, lounge and dining area. The lounge features picture windows with views across the valley. The lounge has a wood burning stove, television, and a hi-fi system; UK IPTV is available as an extra. The kitchen is fully fitted and well equipped. The lounge and kitchen have air-conditioning/heating. The domestic hot water is provided by solar panels, so it is virtually cost free, and there is ideal water pressure for showering. Access to the property is excellent, on sealed roads. Wifi broadband internet access is provided. Guests pay for the electricity they use during their stay at a rate of €0,21 per unit.

Family heated swimming pool available in all seasons/poolside kitchen
The family heated swimming pool is situated to the side of the villa. The surrounding area is beautifully paved with hand crafted stone mosaic. The poolside kitchen building beside the pool is spacious and well equipped with a fitted kitchen, gas barbecue, oven, grill and a microwave oven. Dining table and chairs for five people are provided for eating inside or outside. The wooden pergola offers a shady area. There are spectacular views from the poolside building across the swimming pool towards the surrounding countryside. There is another terrace with a table and chairs for eating outside just near the kitchen door. The two terraces are connected by a path to facilitate access for wheelchair users.

Our village
The village of Villanueva De La Concepcion is a lovely, friendly, safe place where guests may enjoy the lively, festive traditions of a typically vibrant Andalucian village. Within short walking distances there are traditional bars, restaurants, supermarkets, shops and other facilities, such as the recently constructed municipal swimming pool, a large pool in grass lawn surroundings with its open air bar with views towards the Torcal. El Torcal National Park, with its unique natural limestone sculptures and various walking routes, lies above Villanueva and is 10 minutes away by car. Beyond El Torcal the beautiful historic town of Antequera with its many ancient churches, distinctive architecture and prehistoric caves is a 25 minute car journey from Villanueva. El Chorro Gorge, Cordoba, the White Towns, Seville, Granada and Gibraltar are day trips by car. Malaga and Malaga Airport are approximately 45 minutes by car and the drive to Costa Del Sol resorts takes about one hour.

From Halifax

Casa Sofia was a real country retreat. The views were fantastic and the villa had everything we needed. Unfortunately we did not have very good weather so left the villa in search of sunshine. Very good book selection! It was definately rural so don't expect to walk in to town for an evening meal, town is a 15 minute drive which I had not envisaged.
If the weather had been good it would have been perfect!

Review Submitted: January 4, 2011 Date of Stay: January 2011 Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Sofia. It was one of the nicest places weve stayed - fabulous views, well equipped and furnished (we did our own cooking and everything we needed was there), super pool (just warm enough to swim at New Year), and very pleasant owners, who were friendly and helpful but also sensitive to our privacy. Barry met us late at night after a delayed flight, and they had shopped for us so there was no pressure the next day. His bread is very good and the villa is decorated with Nalinis artwork which I liked very much. We explored some of the local area - great walks in El Torcal, El Chorro and nearby national parks, all within an hours drive. The nearest town, Antequera, is interesting (moorish castle, churches and dolmens) and attractive, with huge supermarkets (the supermarket in the nearby village is quite adequate though). Casa Sofia is also a great place for relaxing and doing very little - we read a lot and played games, and had it been warmer we would have used the pool a lot more. A car is needed for getting around as its about 10 mins drive to Villanueva de la Concepcion (where the shops are). We would very much recommend the villa.
