“Lovely spainish style villa.”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This a a great place for a family holiday we are 3 days from returning home, Not going to moan like others about the cost of taxis as it is what it is. The drive up is a bit nervy but if I can do it anyone can. I hate heights and they are some parts that have unprotected cliff drops but like I say if I can do it anyone can. We had a large vw transporter diesel and if you stay in first gear it's fine. The more you do it the easier it becomes. The villa is lovely and has everything you need from sky tv and wifi to a nice BBQ. If it's the first time in nerja you will love it, so much so we are thinking of buying here.

Noel is an absolute gent and couldn't have helped enough. You don't need air con as the ceiling are high and the breeze through is refreshing. Many fans are provided and there are also ceiling fans. The view is breathtaking, and it's as quiet as you can get.

I would highly recommend this place as we had a fantastic time here.

Thank you so much for your review and very kind comments.

Mandy and I think you are quite amazing. You say, you don't like heights and are a nervy driver on hills and yet you arrive in a fully laden 9 seater bus with 8 people and attendant luggage! We normally only recommend normal cars!

Along the coast in Andalucia, larger quality properties tend to be up in the hills. Many of the roads serving them are no more than narrow stoney tracks. The hillside road to our villa and surrounding properties is tarmac and concrete all the way with several passing places.

As many of our guests tell us, the 10 minute journey up to Casa la BuenaVida from the main road is well worth the effort. The reward is an exclusive location, spectacular views and a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the town.

Hope to see you and your family next year.

“just beautiful”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Wow what a stunning villa! We all had a lovely relaxed stay at the villa, everything was just perfect. The beautiful views surrounding the whole villa just blew us away, the pool is ideal for everyone to cool off in, the barbecue area the space inside suited everyone's needs. You have thought of everything! Noel and Mandy are really lovely people (thank you for rescuing us)!!

I would definitely recommend your villa to others.

Thanks again fir letting us stay in your fabulous home.

“" Can we stay here forever!?"”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is a beautiful villa with breathtaking views over the sea and mountains. Our party included grandparents and four grandchildren aged from 8-11; everyone had a fabulous holiday. My youngest son said on his second night as I said goodnight'"Mummy can we stay here forever please?!' Sadly we could not be we did have a great 2 weeks. Everyone enjoyed the swimming pool and the games room with a pool table. Nerja itself was lovely and the beaches were great; we all loved swimming in the sea and hiring a pedlo. The caves at Nerja were spectacular and the children also loved the water park at Almenucar where we spent a fun day.There is a bar and restaurant called Avelon just a few minutes from the villa where we had a fun evening with tapas and flamenco dancing/Spanish music. Altogether this was an amazing villa in a great location; our only concern is how we'll beat those views again!

“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.
