“Beautiful Villa in a truly stunning location”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

As you turn the corner and drive through the double -gates the views beyond are absolutely stunning looking out on the mountains and Figarana on the inland side and Nerja /Mediterranean far below. From that moment we never tired of seeing the changing panorama whether it be the early morning mist ,the heat of the day or the differing colours of the evening.
And all this in such comfort - the main balcony with both dining table and easy chairs /settees can be used throughout the day and makes for a tremendous setting in the evening as the lights come on in the surrounding villages.
Swimming pool is a good size with it's own sun-bathing surround and plenty of sun-beds for everyone -plus the inflatables for relaxed floating in the pool.
Whole place is spotless inside -and has the benefit of Wi-Fi ,music and quality TV - something for everyone although must admit that with the sun shining it was hard to be indoors.
Lovely place - every day a pleasure.

“Stunning, beautiful and worth every penny”
Reviewed 18 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My wife and I just returned form our wedding in Nerja where we stayed at the villa with friends. What a superb experience and lovely place.
Casa La Buena Vida is situated at the highest point of the main road through Punta Lara and is simply beautiful. it worthy of celebrity status as are many villas in the area. The view is stunning and probably could not be better with it overlooking the whole of Nerja and the seafront.
The bedrooms are great as are the pool and kitchen areas. There is pool room and television (x2) (why you would watch telly I honestly dont know!).
The ONLY downside to this villa is its location in terms of getting to and from Nerja by taxi. Taxis will come to the villa but at a high cost of 17e each way (into Nerja). If you are driving and dont mind the extreme gradients which are 1st gear jobs all the way then you will love this place.
Not for the inexperienced driver or those with little cash for taxis! A large group can easily split the taxi costs but there dont seem to be mini buses.

Management Response

Congratulations on your wedding and thank you for choosing our villa. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Regarding taxis - these all tend to be very smart Mercedes cars and I agree that although there are 7 seater taxis available, larger minibuses are not.

17 euros is the normal fare but when this is shared between (say) four people, it can be cheaper than paying for parking.
