“Beautiful location to tour Andalucia”
Reviewed 14 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Just returned from a month in Spain, which included 2 weeks in this lovely villa. The location is stunning, set above Lake Vinuela, in a large and very well established and tended garden. The villa is well appointed with plenty of everything you need to make your holiday special. What we particularly liked was the Spanish cookbooks, which we used alot, the very extensive book and DVD collection and the open fire, which we needed as February in Spain was very cold this year! Logs were easy to purchase at nearby garages and kindling easy to pick up on the many walks around the area.
Lots of good walking but a couple of tips, the lanes shown on the internet maps often deteriorate into tracks and sometimes disappear altogether - get a local map. Also there are alot of dogs in Spain, usually tied up outside farms and villas but sometimes loose, this can be unnerving, particularly if you have a dog with you. We didn't find Spain that dog friendly.
Good restaurants around the area but a car is essential, and one last tip. The best place to shop for food is the excellent Eroski store down in Velez Malagar. Pick up your shopping before you drive up to meet the owners and go to the villa on the first day! The local store in Los Romanes has very limited opening.

“Glorious!”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We arrived on the morning of Oct 19th for one week. Our party consisted of myself, my wife, my two daughters (12 and 14) and my mum.
We collected the car, which is essential, from Malagacar, who were very good, and headed off for the meeting point.

We met Dave, Bruce’s neighbour, as Bruce was in the UK. Dave is a thoroughly nice Guy and showed us around the villa and the grounds. He also left his mobile number just in case we needed anything, even advice. Bruce had also supplied us with his mobile number, which was reassuring.

First impressions were fantastic. The grounds were beautiful with some great plants, a nice sized pool and many different seating areas around the villa.
The views were amazing made even better by the fantastic weather.

The first room you enter is the kitchen / diner, wow. Great sized room with everything we needed and more. There is also a large living room, 3 good sized bedrooms, one with en suite and another bathroom. All of the rooms were as you would hope and expect, clean, tidy and a nice place to be.

There was a folder of places to visit and a good selection of DVD’s and videos, yes videos, to keep you entertained.

Bruce popped over on the Thursday to say hello and to see if everything was OK, what a lovely bloke. Bruce explained how much he had improved the villa since ownership and that he is determined to keep it looking good for his guests.

I agree with the other reviewers that you will not be disappointed in any way. This is our third visit to Malaga and this is the best property we have stayed in despite the others being excellent too.

I should also point out that communication before and after booking was great. There is nothing to worry about, just book it!

Thank you Bruce and Gunila.

“Fabulous and relaxing time!!”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed for one week in the villa and we had a fab time! The villa itself is very clean and spacious and in a great location. The internet photo's dont do this place justice.
The pool is a good size and a nice place to sit around and relax. There are many seating areas to relax and look at the stunning views of Lake Vinuela and the mountains. We will definitely be coming back here again next year.
Many thanks Bruce and Gunila for a great holiday!

“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 5 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

I have rented many properties in Spain in the past and this one was probably the best of the lot. Superbly located overlooking Lake Vinuela and just across from the mighty 2000 metre Maroma mountain, almost total privacy without being too isolated, and a perfect haven of peace. The owners, Bruce and Gunila, are perfect hosts who, in addition to giving clear directions to the villa, meet you at a convenient spot and escort you for the final few minutes' drive. Like many similar properties in Andalucia, the journey to it ends with a rough, unmade track but this is brief and presents no problems at all (even for the underpowered 1.2 Opel Corsa I had hired at the airport).
The whole of the interior---3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large lounge and a separate huge kitchen---was absolutely immaculate. The kitchen especially was a pleasure to use, with so much work space, loads of equipment, and 5 gas rings in addition to an electric oven.
Outside was if anything even better, with a good-sized pool and spectacular trees and plants in the extensive grounds. Everything worked perfectly, so there was no need to trouble Bruce and Gunila during my stay, but I'm sure they would have been there like a shot had I needed assistance.
An easy 10-minute drive in the morning to the pleasant village of Puente don Manuel takes you to a good bakery and various other shops, and the beach resort of Torre del Mar with its splendid Paseo Maritimo is a 25-minute drive. All in all, a delight despite the rather untypically dodgy weather that prevailed during my 5-night stay. Highly recommended!

Liked best: The huge space, the privacy and the views.
Liked least: The mattress in the main bedroom was a little on the soft side for me, but that's a matter or personal taste.
