A peaceful one bedroom apartment , which is part of a villa located in an area amongst stunning mountain scenery and seaviews.

The bright apartment leads to the covered private terrace where one can relax with a drink, taking in views of vineyards,olive and almond groves. Even the Rif mountains in Africa can be seen at dawn and dusk!

The goatherd passes now and again within metres of the villa -tending his flock.

The wildboar are also seen in the evening amongst the oak trees. This is the real Spain!

The apartment is composed out of a separate bedroom with double bed, open kitchen, separate large family bathroom and living area ( there is a possibility to put an extra bed for a third person).Private entrence, come and go as you please.There is direct access to the private south facing terrace, the swimming pool and the garden with BBQ area. The swimming pool has to be shared with the owners when they are present, but you can consider it as private.

The pool ( illuminated at night ) and terraces around the house offer more areas for outdoor living, into the long summer evenings. As beautifull in winter as in summer.

Breakfast service and upon request dinner service available if owners are present.

We also offer you a well equiped honesty bar, no need to run around and go shopping, this is Holiday, Relax and Enjoy!

The apartment is located at 3 km of the beautiful white village of Canillas de Albaida, 4km from marvelous Competa and at 50 m of the border of the national park Sierra de Tejeda.

The nearest beaches of Torre de Mar, Torrox Costa and Nerja ( Balcon de Europa ) are at approx 30 minutes drive.

Excellent location for exploring Andalucia with its beautiful white villages, and towns such as Granada, Sevilla, Malaga, Cordoba.

Don't forget to explore Malaga, it's a wonderfull city, our favorite!, you can shop,dine, you have the beautifull marina and plenty of culture!!!

Long walks into the spectacular Park(50m away),will take you to the pretty, white villages dating back to the Moors , or up into the high mountains,beyond the treeline. Just as beautiful during the winter, as the summer.

The track into the Park leads to La Moroma (6800ft).

Great for hiking, mountainbiking, horseriding or walks.

Or just relax at the pool with a glass of wine and a tapa, mayby you'll never want to leave...

The Andalucia region

In a couple of minutes you have the stunning typic white villages of Salares, Sedella, Canillas de Albaida , Competa, Archez etc.

In any of them you'll find bars, restaurant and small supermarket. In Competa you really find everything ; it's a beautifull village with nice people, many bars, terraces, souvenirshops, supermarket, good restaurants and on Saturday the market, here I always buy my vegetables and fruits, you will be amazed of the taste, here a tomato still tasts as one!

All this villages have a lot of festivals, there's always something to do, there's always live music somewhere.

If you want a bigger city than please don't forget Malaga, in my opinion the most beautifull city! You can shop, enjoy the harbour with it's many bars, culture ( the Picasso museum etc), enjoy the beach ( Malageta ) it is still a real Spanish city, I can't get enough of it! You'll only drive 40-45 min.

Of course there's Granada not to far away to go and visit the 'Alhambra' ( make sure to reserve your tickets well in advance)

Also Antequara , Cordoba are worth a visit, you can really explore Andalusia.

If you want to go to the sea ( by the way from your terrace at the house you'll have the most beautifull view on the mediterenian)

You can choose from several beaches, if you want a long beach than you can go to Torrox or Torre del Mar, they both have a nice boulevard along the beach where you can walk and have a drink or have dinner... There are also several chiringuitas at the beaches, espescially between Torrox and Nerja, you can eat the fish of the day for no money!!

If you want more isolated beaches,with rocks and cliffs, there are many!, beautifull beaches in the Natural Park, some of them have a restaurant on the beach. I You'll find them between Nerja and Almunejar. Nerja ofcourse also has different beaches, small and rocky ones and long and sandy ones.

Nerja itself has beside lovely beaches also a very nice center with the Balcon the Europe , shops, lots of restaurants and for the youth some nihgtlife...

Don't have enough yet, visit the cuevas of Nerja or the fleemarket on sunday with afterwards a paella on the Burriana beach?

You wont have time enough to explore it all, of course you can always come back?! :-)

Canillas De Albaida

The Location of our house is a true peace of Paradise!, a little peace of Heaven!

Our house is located on the GR249.

From just behind the house the road leads to the National Park; Sierra de Tejeda. You can start walking or mountainbiking straight from our house. There are several paths starting just around the corner. When you go up the path behind the house you'll see the most stunning views on the Maroma and on the village of Sedella, if you'll walk a little bit furter you'll see Salares, both of them you can reach walking or by mountainbike. You can also reach Canillas the Albaida walking. For the more adventures you can walk to the top of the Maroma...

By mountainbike you can also make the most incredible tours!! Me and my husband are addicted mountainbikers and you can't imagine the beauty of this area and the easy thing is you can leave your car and just start off from the house!

An extra service we offer is that we take you on a guided tour, we show you the most beautifull places...

Don't like mountainbiking, also on your roadbike you can do a lot of tours, sure you'll have a good training...

If all of this sounds to exhousting than just stay and relax at the swimmingpool and enjoy the surroundings, and the silence.

The silence up here is a true wonder.

I also enjoy just to relax, do nothing or reed a novel on my sunbed in the shades of our figtree.

If you desire we can serve you a breakfast, just say what you like and we''ll take care of it, also lunch, tapas, lunchpakage, dinner or maybe a BBQ are possible. We want you to ENJOY&RELAX. Maybe you'll never want to leave...
