The entrance hall leads to the spacious lounge/dining room, kitchen, guest toilet, and stairs to the ground floor. The lounge area seats 8 with 2 x 3-seater sofas, and a 2-seater sofa. A wood burning open fire provides warmth for guests in winter, and ceiling fans cool summer guests.

French doors lead from the lounge to the terrace, via an alcove which houses a large writing desk, ideal for letter writing or laptop users (pay as you go ADSL wi-fi connection available).
There are beautiful sea views from the south facing windows in the dining area. Further French doors lead from the dining area to the south and west facing spacious upper terrace, overlooking the pool and the sea.

Both terraces overlook the pool, and have sea views.
The beautiful irregular shaped pool (approx. 6.5 by 3.5 metres) has no deep end, and is thus ideal for non-swimmers, being around 1 metre 25 cms deep.

The Andalucia region
Almunecar, a bustling very Spanish town, with its daily market for fresh fish, meat, fruit and vegetables, many shops, small cobbled streets and extensive beaches and restaurants is just a 5 minute drive to the east.
Continue a further 15 minutes east along the coast and you will reach the delightful town of Salobrena, topped by a Moorish castle and its whitewashed houses that look like sugar cubes.
Nerja, with its famous Balcon de Europa, and caves, wealth of restaurants and bars, and 7 beaches is 15 minutes drive away to the west. Originally a fishing village, Nerja has kept its original Spanish charm, with twisting streets and white buildings.
Just 30 minutes drive away, you can experience the real Spain in the village of Frigiliana. The village has been awarded the title of the most beautiful and best maintained Andalusian village several times. Whitewashed houses line cobbled streets which gently carve their way through the picturesque village up to the castle ruins.
In the scenic area around Frigiliana there are an abundance of olive groves, almond orchards, lemon and orange trees.
Granada, A little over one hour's drive away to the north-east, is a city of culture housing the magical Palace of Alhambra, a wealth of shops, and many fine tapas bars. For spring and winter visitors (1/12 to 30/4), who want to experience the beach and the snow in the same day , the ski resort of Sierra Nevada is just 30 minutes from Granada. When fully open, there are 103 km. of pisted runs, including a snowboard park!
Punta de la Mona is a beautiful green headland containing a number of luxury villas nestling between the stunning bay of La Herradura (the horseshoe), and the tranquil beauty of Marina del Este.
The traditional white fishing village of La Herradura retains its unique charm and is still a relatively undiscovered gem along the coast. Throughout the length of the bay, are a selection of local "chiringuitos" (beach restaurants) and shops.
Marina del Este is a must for a drink or a seafood lunch, in one of the many cafes overlooking the marina, and for a walk up the natural “rock” which, like a mini Gibraltar, dominates the harbour.
Walking and trekking opportunities abound in the magnificent Cerro Gordo natural area of hills and cliff scenery above the crystal blue sea. All of this is a mere 10 minute drive from the villa, although there are also some beautiful walks from the villa if you prefer a car-free day.
A few minutes drive away to the west is the beautiful secluded beach of Cantarijan (naturist – optional) with its welcoming sun beds and shades in front of the La Barraca restaurant (be sure to try the house salad).
A little further to the west, in the next bay, the more peaceful but equally beautiful Canuelo beach, is ideal for snorkelling around the rocks in the crystal clear water.
The area is renowned for its diving with several international diving schools. It is also a paradise for watersports enthusiasts - the local beach has a windsurfing/sailing school for hire of equipment and/or instruction.

"Large Villa, very good value and very helpful owner"
The villa is very large and has everything you need for a holiday, including beach towels. Peter, the owner was very helpful and met us on arrival. He explained everything we needed to know. He even left us with some food, wine and beers to get us through the first couple of days, which was much appreciated. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone. We found the Playa Burriana in Nerja the best beach. Frigiliana is well worth a visit and has some great small restaurants.

"A bad start, but in the end good!"
This villa is wonderful located just outside La Herradura. The beach is a two minute drive and so is the centre of La Herradura. Almunecar is not far as well, only five minutes away. Make sure you wil… More

"A absolute gem"
Right from the off I had a good feeling about this property due to the communication with the owner beforehand and on arrival my expectations were exceeded. Tastefully furnished, lots of space inside and outside and everything you need for a relaxing break in a very unspoilt corner of Spain.
We traveled with two young children who loved the pool and the toys that went with it and I felt safe letting them splash in the pool while I enjoyed the sun on the poolside loungers.
The kitchen was a dream to cook in and we had the choice of eating indoors or on one of the two outside terraces.
The views were stunning and with a car the town and neighbouring Almunecar were easy to reach as was the marina.
We travelled with a netbook so were able to use the villa wifi to check out local attractions and arrange a trip on a charter yacht from Marina del Oeste. Having CBeebies also helped and all the British Freeview channels are available via the satellite.
We used the Burriana beach in Nerja mostly as it was sandy, the local beach is pebbly, but were glad to escape the tourist trap that Nerja is becoming and come home to La Herradura for a more authentic experience of holidaying in Spain.
I will almost certainly visit this villa again in the future.
