Villa La Colina
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The villa is located in the beautiful urbanisation of San Nicolas less than 8 minutes walk into the village and bay of La Herradura. With wonderful sea and mountain views, there is lots of outside space offering sun all day - the property is all on one level so making it ideal for all ages. Accessed via a secure gate, there is off road parking with a driveway leading up to the villa. The large living room/dining area has a feature open fireplace. Off the living area is a large covered wooden decked area with tables and chairs. There are various pebbled and tiled garden areas with planters and at the top end is a BBQ area. There are stunning sea views from the exterior and many of the rooms have sea views.
The headland of Cerro Gordo Natural Park, topped by a Moorish watch tower provides several fascinating local walks with fabulous panoramic views west to Malaga and east to Salobreña. There is a wide variety of wild life to be seen, which includes mountain goats, deer and even wild boar.
Cantarrijan Beach, just to the other side of the Cerro Gordo, is one of several naturist beaches in the area and has two excellent restaurants.
West of La Herradura, the coastline towards Nerja is stunningly beautiful, offering unique mountain vistas; a wealth of fascinating flora and fauna; and numerous secluded coves and beaches to explore.
Nerja itself is famous for its underground cave system, the largest in Europe, which hosts an exciting programme of concert performances in its subterranean auditorium during the summer months. The Balcon de Europa forms the focal point in Nerja and is a favourite place for everyone to gather in the long summer evenings, with its many street artists, performers and musicians. Tours of the town can be taken by horse drawn carriage or by the local road train, much loved by the children.
Frigiliana, a charming traditional 'white' Andalucian village, lies in the hills above Nerja. With its steep patterned cobbled streets, craft shops and stunning views to the coast it attracts many visitors. There are several traditional restaurants with balconies giving stunning views towards the coast.
Marina Del Este, a short drive to the east of the village of La Herradura, provides stylish mooring for the yachts of the rich and famous. On the quayside there are several art galleries to peruse and many excellent restaurants for that romantic night out.
Pena Escrita Natural Park is a short, but steep, drive into the mountains above the village. There is a wide variety of animals to be seen here in the zoological park, including hippos, bears, monkeys and kangaroos. Indigenous animals, such as the local deer, can also be seen roaming freely on the hillside. Log cabins are available for overnight or weekend stays. There is a large outdoor pool/lido open during the summer and a restaurant offering many local delicacies. Mountain bike hire and horse riding are also available.?The Alhambra Palace, Granada. It is said that a man who dies without seeing the Alhambra has seen nothing. The Alhambra is the most visited cultural site in Europe and is a rewarding excursion. Due to its popularity it is recommended that tickets are pre-booked through any branch of the BBVA Bank.
The city of Granada is well worth visiting, its beautiful cathedral, the Albayzin and ethnic quarters are all of interest. The best exterior views of the Alhambra are from the Plaza San Nicolas.
The Alpujarras. The mountain area made famous in Chris Stewart's 'Driving Over Lemons' lies to the south of Granada and is easily reached from the coast. The three most renowned villages, Bubion, Pampaneira and Capileira are a magnet for tourists and walkers alike, with their abundance of tiny shops selling local crafts and delicacies.

"Very welcoming, spacious, well equipped, made for a relaxing holiday with stunning views!"
We went last summer with our 2 toddlers and grandparents.
There was plenty of room for all 6 of us and we found it comforable and spacious.
It is well equipped so you don't have to worry about taking too much with you.
We received a very lovely welcome from the agent who gave us lots of info and tips about where to go and what to do.
It is clean with a nice patio garden, plenty of space to sun bathe or hide in the shade. A great barbeque, with a beautiful stunning view of the hillsides and the sea!
We will definately go back.
Just to say thank you for your review. I am really happy that you enjoyed your holiday and your time at La Colina.
