Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Casa Beni perches on its own 'infinity' platform on the very edge of the hillside village of Canillas de Aceituno. Newly built, the characterful 3 bedroom villa has high-specification accommodation for 6 to 8 people on two floors. The main open-plan living space includes a kitchen with every mod-con, a generous dining area with seating for 10 and a beautiful and comfortable sitting area with wood-burning fireplace and satellite TV. Outside there is a 7 X 4 metre swimming-pool on its own gated platform, a shaded al fresco eating area, a large gas BBQ and several different patios and terraces on which to relax and enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains, lake and sea.
A five minutes stroll takes you to the heart of the totally untouristy village with its tiled spring-water fonts and flower-decked winding streets. Here you can enjoy the real Spain with the sights and sounds of this Andalucian gem where everyone greets everyone, the restaurants and bars offer great value and where you might even glimpse the ladies practicing their flamenco!

Casa Beni was only finished at the end of 2006. It has three double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms and one with a separate shower room. The extremely comfortable beds are of a Danish design and can be made up to provide two doubles and a twin or three twins. They are all very individually decorated and the master bedroom is on the upper floor with its own very large roof terrace and the most beautiful views. There is also a sofa bed in the living room. The large elegant living space has a romantic fireplace with wood-burner, a dining area that can seat 10 people and a charming open-plan kitchen equipped with an amazing amount of equipment and beautiful china. Decorated with style,personality and comfort, Casa Beni is fully air conditioned but has the added luxury of underfloor heating for the cooler months. Both of these, the air-conditioning and the under-floor heating, will be charged as per usage by the tenant.
Bring along your laptop because there is now free internet access.
|Further details outdoors|
Two sets of french doors open from the living-room onto a spacious covered patio where there is a mosaic table and chairs for 10 for eating al fresco. This opens up onto a very large terrace with a gas BBQ. The 7x4 metre swimming pool is set within its own gated terrace below and there are many sunbeds scattered around the various terraces to enjoy either the poolside, the shade or the sun. There is a Pingpong table and basket ball net.
Wine and water on your arrival. Please let us know if you would like any food brought in for you or if you would like a meal made for the evening of your arrival.
The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol comprises many different aspects from sophisticated holiday resorts such as Marbella and Puerto Banus, commercial and financial centre of Malaga and quieter coastal towns that retain a flavour of their original fishing heritage. This part of the Mediterranean coastline has been a well-established destination for International tourism since the late 1950's and with its all-year-round sunshine record, broad beaches and good-value life-style, there is something to please everyone. However, only a short drive away from the coast brings you to the peace and spectacular scenery of a more traditional Spain and its more leisurely way of life, where the dazzling white-washed villages clinging to the hillsides and sights and scenery will take your breath away and lift the spirits.
At the eastern end of The Costa del Sol, between Malaga and Nerja and up in to the hills behind lies the Axarquia region. With its sub-tropical temperatures it is known for the best climate in Europe. Steeped in history having been ruled by both the Romans and the Moors it is a fascinating place to stay and explore.
Canillas De Aceituno
Although only 20 minutes of spectacular driving away from the coast and all its amenities, the tranquil location of Casa Beni, deep in the Axarquia region, allows you to make your own pace of life, taking in the crystal air of this outstandingly beautiful area on the doorstep of the Sierra Tejada National Park. From here you can take a gentle stroll with your water-colours to admire the sights and scents of Andalusia, do a spot of bird watching, photograph a spectacular sunset or just prop yourself on a boulder with a picnic and a glass of local wine and listen to the goats' tinkling bells and the chirping of the cicadas. You can even walk up to the top of the majestic La Maroma which, at over 2,000 metres, is the highest mountain in the province of Malaga.
Venture further afield to explore the other 'white villages' in the area. Borrow a map from Casa Beni and make for Colmenar, Comares, Competa, Canillas de Albaida ..... and others that don't begin with 'C'! The enormous caves at Nerja, 25 minutes away, are a must. Antequera and Granada (with nearby skiing in the Sierra Nevada) are within striking distance.
Don't ignore Malaga which has great character and culture, a fabulous historic centre and sophisticated shops.
Within 20 minutes of Canillas you can be shopping in bustling Velez Malaga or at El Ingenio mall with its large supermarket and international retail outlets. There are also wonderful street markets on different days of the week in all the local towns and villages.
Two lovely golf courses are within 25 minutes. There is sailing on Lake Vinuela and 20 minutes away a fabulous Water Park at Torre del Mar beside the sea where there are many beach bars.
Marbella and famous Puerto Banus are within 1 1/2 hours.

We stayed a week in Casa Beni, and loved every minut! We are a family with 3 boys aged 8, 13 and 15 and the house was perfect for us.
The house itself has 3 lovely bedrooms with wonderful beds, and is equally suited for a family as ours or friends or couples travelling together.
There are thee bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and a very nice livingroom. But the real highlight was an awesome terasse, with a stunning view of the vally all the way to the sea. The terasse is huge, with sunbeds, sunchairs and a big diningtable. We had all our meals there, making good use of the (very) big gas-grill.
We used the pool a lot, and played a lot of tabletennis, which is also possible at Casa Beni.
The location was perfect for us. Just 20-30 minuts by car from the cost, with lots of tourist attractions, shoppingmalls and lovely beaches.
But set in a very charming village, genuine spanish, and with the beautiful national park literally in the backyard. There are various great walks from the village, and an endless number of trails within easy reach.
Angela was most helpfull, and send lots of information before hand, as well as answering all the questions we had by mail.
In the house are lots of further information about the area.
There are some very steep roads, and allthough we managed with a normal rented car, next time we will rent a 4WD.
The house is every bit as beautiful as seen in the advertice, and even more charming because of all the levels, build on the mountain as all the other houses in the area.
Because of the levels it will probaby not be very well suited for people with walking disabilities or families with toddlers. For everybody else I sincerely recommend Casa Beni - and I very much hope to return myself with my family!
