A TASTE OF HEAVEN AT A BARGAIN PRICE
Luxury 2 bedroom villa, with 8x4m pool, UK Satellite TV (playing through Flat Screen TV) and UK Radio, DVD, Audio System set up for Iphone, Ipod, and Android Phones or Tablets with Blue Tooth connection. All mod cons, delightful, seductively serene country setting, yet only 20 minutes from the glorious beaches & bustling town of Nerja & the magic of Andalusia. The lovely villages of Torrox, Competa,and Frigliana are minutes away & you'll find, here, Andalusia at its best! Pool directly in front of the house & terrace - great for just slipping into on those hot summer days & for keeping an eye on the kids. The plot the house sits on is flat, has plenty of space for the kids to run around & play away to their hearts content in safety, with parking for up 3 cars. The setting is very private, not overlooked and a joy to roam and breathe in the clean air - you are indeed in a world of your own! Ideal base for Walkers and Mountain Bikers!
Our villa is located in a peaceful but not isolated position. Torrox Pueblo (a relaxed but surprisingly bustling town on the way down to the coast with brilliant value fresh food sellers - fresh veg plucked straight from the town plots) is only a 15 minutes drive away. Here there are narrow streets with nooks and crannies to wander & discover the real heart of Spain. Many restaurants (at prices that are stunningly low), cafés & bars abound in the local square, with many more tucked away in corners, to while away the hours. With shops and daily market stalls selling produce, meat and fish that is locally harvested and reared & so much tastier than the run of the mill supermarket goods! A further 5 minutes drive, south, brings you to the coastal resort of Torrox Costa – with a lovely beach that is never overcrowded - with loads of lazy, stylish bars, eateries, tennis and other sports facilities. National & international supermarkets, here, cater for all tastes and at Torre de Mar (5 min from here) there is a huge hypermarket within a shopping mall, cinema & bowling complex.
Lots to do and see - read on: If you head north and inland you'll come to Competa in 15 minutes, a typically picturesque Pueblo Blanco. Here you'll find very sophisticated restaurants, cheaper eateries & bars. Meandering streets, which are filled with flowers, hanging from pots throughout the year. This whole district is a far cry from the over commercialized Costa's.
Our house is only 45 minutes from Malaga airport.
Nerja which is a more active and semi boisterous beach resort is just 30 minutes away from the Villa and has many cosmopolitan attractions to cover most peoples preferences.
The Villa has a lovely peaceful rural setting, where you can truly feel as though you HAVE “got away from it all”. The area, where our house is located, is untouched by traffic as we are tucked into a delightful valley, but with a local caretaker if you need help and advice.
April 2015 - We've had some EXCELLENT news - the track, leading, down to our villa, has been concreted. A massive improvement with drainage also fitted to ensure water flows off the track to avoid erosion. The upgrade is rated as being superb by all who live in our area.
Flat Screen Samsung TV plays UK TV with popular UK radio stations coming through the installed satellite system. You can play DVD's that you bring along with you and there are quite a few that are already available at the villa.
WiFi is available at most bars, restaurants and ice cream parlours, to catch up with the outside world if you want to. Plus if you are coming from the UK and have a smart phone, then set it up with a Three Sim as calls, data and text messages are covered by Three's UK standard charges (no extra charges that all the other networks sting you for) as of April 2015 - so you can fit a Three Pay As you Go SIM in the UK, set it for roaming and load it with enough Data allowance to keep you going for your holiday period and pay no more than you would in the UK.
Note: A damage deposit of £200, refundable, on departure and confirmation by our caretaker that clients have left our property in tip top condition, will need paying to us, 2 weeks prior to you arriving at our villa.

The Andalucia region
A STUNNING AND UNSPOILT AREA - A TRUE TASTE OF ANDALUCIA - WHERE YOU REALLY CAN GET AWAY FROM IT ALL
Some highlights are:
Nerja: Great beaches (Buriana is our favourite), shopping, nightlife and a host of bars and restaurants with a cosmopolitan area surrounding the Balcon de Europa. 20 minutes by car.
Nerja Caves: A great day out for all ages and one of the best cave attractions in Spain (if not all of Europe). Discovered in the 50's by local kids. Not to be missed.
Frigliana Village: A wonderful Pueblo Blanco (White Hill Village) that is a delight to wander around, with shops selling hand made craft and art items in abundance, feast in excellent restaurants and sip a cooling drink in the working mens club - which is on on the main street of the village, with lovely views over the botanical gardens. 20 minutes by car.
Malaga City: A hub for art, culture and shopping. Go see the Picasso Museum, Cathedral, the old town and shop away in Calle Larios. The port area hums with Flameco bars and wonderful fish restaurants.
Tore de Mar's Aqua Velez (Water Park), near to the El Enginio Shopping Mall is open June to September. Great water slides, a baby pool, wave pool, sun beds in grassy areas, restaurant , just great for all age groups. 20 minutes by car.
Baviera Golf Course: 18 Hole professional golf course & driving range, 15 minutes away.
El Acebuchal: The Lost Village, best found by taking the back road from Torrox Pueblo to Frigliana. Set in beautiful scenery, with fantastic walks around the many mountain tracks that are located here. With a farm/artisan type of shop selling local goods and an excellent restaurant serving regional dishes prepared by Antonio, the owner.
The National Park of the Sierras de Tejeda and Almijara y Alhama Mountains: The mountain peaks that form this National Park are on your doorstep. They have outstanding beauty in the heart of the Axarquía region. The Tejeda Peaks reach 2,065mts above sea level and offer spectacular views of the Mediterranean coast and adjacent mountain ranges, with great cycling and walking routes.
Granada: A 60 minutes drive away - with the cooling delights of the Alhambra Palace and it's lavish gardens being the highlight of a visit to Andalucia.
With Torrox, Competa and Nerja on your doorstep, Casa Tranquila is within an area that is a truly unspoilt jewel of the Costa del Sol
