Casa de Estrellas.
About the home
Welcome to Casa de Estrellas! Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda mountain range surrounded by vines and almond / olive trees, Casa de Estrellas ( meaning ' House of Stars ' ) is a cosy, comfortable, peaceful villa set in its own land of just under one acre, located between the two beautiful and stunning white villages of Canillas de Aceituno and Sedella.
Both villages have a variety of services to offer - shops, bars / restaurants, chemists, doctors, post office, banks and large municipal swimming pools with all facilities. If you wish to travel further afield, the list is endless – Gibraltar, once seen never forgotten, Marbella and Puerto Banus, Ronda and the magnificent old bullring, Granada and the Alhambra Palace, Cordoba, Seville and Nerja with its stunning Balcon de Europa and the list goes on!
Or if you prefer, why not just sit on one of the south facing terraces of Casa de Estrellas with a nice glass of wine in hand and a bowl of local olives.

This is our second visit, we spent our honeymoon here in April 2011.
Lindsey and Jim made us feel very welcome.
The terrace is a great place to relax and take in the breathtaking views. Just before the sun was setting the wind would drop to nothing and you could here a pin drop.
We made good use of the bbq and well equipped kitchen.
We had 'menu del dias' at the Restaurante El Chiringuito in Sedella on a number of occasions which was very good value for money.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week here.
