A beautiful property used by the friendly owners as their own holiday home and let out to guests when not required - standard well above the average holiday let. House and gardens extremely well maintained and comfortably furnished. Lovely pool. Situated at the end of a track down a steep drive way with great views over the valley. Not too isolated but not overlooked either. Smaller villages only minutes away, larger towns of Almunecar and La Herradura within 30 minutes easy drive, the latter being well worth the trip for lunch at La Gaviota at the far end of the beach only feet from the waves! We had a wonderfully relaxing week and can't wait to go again.

This villa has everything you can expect when your at home with the addition of a pool, table tennis table, amazing views, surrounding grounds and fruit trees. Very well equipped and would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to explore the area i.e Almunecar, Granada, Malaga etc and to chill out in the Spanish countryside. It's far enough away from any busy areas but close enough to a nearby shop for the essentials (2 miles away) without it being totally isolated. We went to the Hypermarket in Motril for shopping but there is a large supermarket in Almunecar and plenty of other shops locally. Would suggest the addition of internet access and additional air conditioning units within the property (1 air conditioning unit in the bedroom) to make it 100% complete (weather was very hot during our visit) but does have plenty of free standing fans.

Casa Cristina is a beautiful, well-appointed villa in the hills to the north of Almunecar. When we arrived the house was very clean and tidy. Its two bedrooms, kitchen and open-plan living area are very spacious, while the patio, garden and swimming pool have wonderful views of the hills and valley.
A car is essential, as the villa is a short distance down a bumpy track, but the village of Otivar is only a short drive away and has a couple of good quality and authentic restaurants and bars. We had such a good time in the early-summer sunshine that we extended our stay by another four nights!
