"Beautiful property in fantastic location" Trip Advisor, April 2014

"Luxury villa in a beautiful village" (Trip Advisor review, Francine, Canada, July 2012)

"A glimpse of paradise on earth" (Guest Book, H & F, Watford, Aug 2012)

Casa Convento provides an exceptional standard of comfort, style and character which we hope will make your holiday a 5-star event! It has been designed, built and furnished by the owner using the very best 'ingredients'. Casa Convento has the advantage of being part of the delightful 'pueblo blanco' of Canillas de Aceituno, while maintaining its own intimate atmosphere and privacy. FREE WI-FI ACCESS.

SORRY - NO KIDS UNDER 10. NOT SUITABLE FOR INFIRM.

THIS IS A N0N-SMOKING PROPERTY.

The National Park is immediately at its back with the panorama over the village and hills to the lake and sea below. A perfect hideaway for walking, reading, swimming, relaxing or take a 2 minute stroll down to to the village for a 'fino' and tapas or an authentically regional meal at one of its good-value Spanish restaurants, or pack the in-house picnic basket and head up one of the hill paths. But the beaches, international shopping, night-life and golf courses are only 25 minutes away...

The Andalucia region

Only a short drive away from the vibrant lifestyle of the Costa del Sol coast brings you to the peace and spectacular scenery of a more traditional Spain and its more leisurely way of life, where dazzling white-washed villages cling to the hillsides and summits and the sights and scenery will enchant you throughout the year.

At the eastern end of The Costa del Sol, between Malaga and Nerja and up in the hills behind lies the Axarquia region with its sub-tropical temperatures with a reputation for the best climate in Europe. Steeped in history having been ruled by both the Romans and the Moors, it has much to offer for exploration and sense-of-place from the plethora of traditional villages to the magical formations within the Nerja caves.

Malaga itself has a beautiful historical centre, with very good shopping, while Antequera and Granada are within exploring range.

Canillas De Aceituno

Although only 20 minutes beautiful driving from the coast into the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda National Park, Canillas de Aceituno is a world apart from the coastal 'buzz'. It retains all the sights, sounds, scents and spirit of traditional Andalucian life - potted flowers decorate the narrow side-streets, mules and goats pass by studiously ignoring humanity, the fish-delivery man calls out his wares, the village ladies practice their graceful flamenco in the evening cool. From here you can walk, paint, photograph, bird-watch, picnic, listen to the cicadas, drink the local wine, sample the village speciality - the famous fennel-scented 'morcilla' sausage, in whose honour there is a village fiesta in April. Or simply enjoy the tranquility and comfort of Casa Convento. Choose your preferred venue - full-on rooftop sun, lunch-with-a view in the shade of the third-floor terrace, or salute the sunset with a cold glass of 'fino' while the shrilling young house martins put on a spectacular flying display for you.

The main 4-day village festival is in August when the whole population turns out in style; - in fact, there are many other village fiestas during the summer months, and local town/village markets every day of the week year round. Velez-Malaga is well worth exploring, especially its older, higher streets, and nearer the coast there is a Water Park, Go-karting, 2 golf courses, masses of chiringuitos (beach bars usually with sun loungers) and a large shopping centre/supermarket, El Ingenio. However, do please try out your Spanish in the village's fascinating little shops and on the streets, where everyone greets each other, friend or stranger.
