The Andalucia region
Andalucia has many dimensions. The coast and the rural areas such as the Axarquia where Casa 23 is situated.
In the Axarquia, the culture of Spain is still alive and many traditional fiestas take place in the white washed villages that abound in this area.
The cities of Granada, Cordoba and Seville is only a 2/3hour drive with the famous Alhambra Palace www.alhambradegranada.org, the Sierra Nevadas are only a short drive away too.
A trip to Malaga city with the new art museums; Picasso museum www.museopicassomalaga.org, the Thyssen Museum and Revello de Toro should not be missed for any art lover (45min drive on the autovia or take the bus from Torre del Mar along the coast road). Malaga has a new 'port zone' with good shopping arcades and bars where one can sit and watch the sun go down with the backdrop of the city.
Beaches at Nerja and Torre del Mar are a short drive away as are two golf courses, Baviera golf and Anoreta Golf.
Los Romanes is a typical Spanish village and is famous for its olives and the local olive press provides some of the best olive oil in the region.
The local goat herder often 'walks' his goats down the hillside and it is always a fantastic sight, the age old traditions are still alive and well.
The village has a small shop supplying your basic needs, a bar and a restaurant Miguel's which is a 3min walk from the villa has some of the finest steak guests have ever tasted and a very reasonably priced menu. Three further restaurants are within a 5min drive; 2 of which are situated on the lakeside. There are further shops about a 5mins drive in the village of Puente don Manuel. However the hypermarket is in Torre del Mar about 15mins drive.
Lake Vinuela is a reservoir providing drinking water to the Malaga area. The lake provides a variety of activities; sailing, canoeing, fishing together with fine walks and off the road cycling. Power craft are not allowed on the lake therefore creating a tranquil place. Sailing dinghies and canoes can be hired from the sailing club just past The Vinuela Hotel 5min drive.
The famous whitewashed villages of the area provide fantastic day trips; Comares, perched precariously on the top of a mountain, is a must see experience, and provides the best sunset pictures offering a 360degree perspective of the area.
There are many 'routes' in this region; The route of the Grape, The route of the Olive The route of the Raisin - all available within a short drive of the villa. Many local fiestas take place during the year and one would be unfortunate to miss one in any of the villages. Sample the local delights and take home the true memories of Spain.
Andalucia is not just for summer...during the cooler months of October to March why not enjoy the sunny days of winter averaging 17degrees centigrade. The cities of Granada, Cordoba and Seville, are all within a couple of hours drive from the villa. Malaga is of course a city that is often missed on the tourist map and is well worth a visit. only a 40min drive.
There is still an enormous wealth of attractions to enjoy out of season when there is less traffic and more importantly its CHEAPER!

"Very comfortable villa with fantastic views"
We had a fantastic fortnight at Casa 23. The villa is one of the best equipped we have ever stayed in. The views from the terrace and pool are outstanding and a photographer's dream. There is plenty to see and do in the area and a number of nearby good restaurants including one within walking distance which is always a plus. However we were enjoying the villa and pool so much we spent a lot of time there rather than sightseeing so we need to come back to see some of the things we missed!
I am so glad that you and your family had a good holiday at Casa 23. We would certainly love to welcome you back in the future.

We have just returned from a wonderful 10 night stay in this beautiful villa. Everything was just perfect, the villa is a real home from home and is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The highlight for us (in addition to the perfect weather) was the absolutely stunning views from all the terraces, we enjoyed lovely evenings with good food and wine watching the sun set over the lake and mountains. Excellent restaurants can be found within a very short distance, one being just a short stroll away. Can't recommend this villa highly enough, so much so we are returning in September. Very many thanks to Sue the owner for sharing with us her delightful villa.
So pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I am sure you will enjoy September as much. Thank you for sharing you views.

"An Artists Paradise -"
I loved the peaceful setting, the stunning views which as an artist I appreciated and never tired of sketching. I was great being away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist spots. Although it is within easy access of the coast, Malaga city and Granada for a day trip out. The owner has thought of everything. The pool was delightful and the many terraces give you choice of space.
Thank you for your review. We hope to see you return to do more of your stunning art work of the area. Next time when it isn't so hot....maybe May time when all the poppies and spring flowers are about.

"Fantastic villa with breathtaking views"
What can I say!! We all enjoyed our visit to the villa it was everything that was advertised and more. We certainly were sad to say goodbye at the end of the twelve days that we spent there. The views are stunning and you never get tired of staring at it. The villa was well maintained and clean and had all the comforts of home. The weather was fantastic for the duration of our stay and it was lovely to jump in the pool when it got too hot, plus you can still see the lovely view. I would highly recommend the restaurant which is situated about a 2 minutes walk away from the villa. We visited it three times and thoroughly enjoyed every meal. I would thoroughly recommend the resort of Nerja too, we spent a day there sightseeing and finished off by visiting the caves which were beautiful and tranquil. Thank you Sue for all your help and for making it a truly unforgettable holiday.
What a fantastic review. Thank you very much. We do try to make it easy for everyone. We look forward to seeing you again, hopefully!

"Views, peace and tranquility that would win an Olympic Gold"
We've just had 10 wonderful days at Sue's wonderful villa. The main features that make this a 5 star villa are: 1. The advanced help,advice and support that you receive from the villa owner - Sue gives you such special care and attention in advance so that you can get your holiday off to the best possible start. One special example of this was the help that Sue gave me to find out from her local contacts and friends how my son Rory and I could climb Spain's highest peak, Mulhacen, which is in the Sierra Nevada. Then there was also a wonderful welcome pack awaiting us on arrival including a chilled bottle of Cava and really practical information and guidance on the villa's facilities and local area. 2. The stunning views from the balcony - At any time of day or night the views were wonderful, but there was nothing better for me than stepping out on to the balcony with my breakfast and the only sounds I could hear were cockeral's crowing and crickets chirping. 3. A great location to see the many different sides of the Costa Del Sol - It is a wonderful place to relax in, but also thanks to its proximity to Andalucia's fantastic road network it's also a great place to get to many other beautiful spots. During our 10 days our high spots included the laidback, relaxed, cosmopolitan resort of Nerja (35 mins drive), Granada (1hr 35 mins), Ronda (1 hr 40 mins via Antequera), Mijas (55 mins) and the beautiful mountain village of Capiliera in the Sierra Nevada via Las Alpujarras (2 hours). And yet we still enjoyed some home comforts, eating a takeaway curry from a local restaurant while watching the Olympics opening ceremony in the villa.
Thanks ever so much for your wonderful review. We do endeavour to help but I never imagined you both would scale such heights!! We hope to see you back very soon.

"What a view and what a relaxing place to stay."
The property has everything you need for an easy and relaxing stay. It's location is excellent with great views over the lake and valley and is easy to get to with a relatively short drive from Malaga airport. The local restaurant, just a few hundred yards up the road does good food and there are a couple of small stores in Los Romanes for basic provisions and a large supermarket a short drive away. It's a good central location for visiting towns and cities nearby eg Granada, Malaga, Antequera, Nerja etc. We're looking forward to our next visit!
Many thanks for reviewing Casa 23.

Casa 23 is a beautiful villa with excellent facilities. We have stayed there twice now which is something we don't normally do but it is so worth it. The views from the terraces are just stunning, morning and evening when you see the villages light up as night falls. The pool is lovely and spotlessly clean and the villa has everything you need for a couple, group of friends or a family. If you want to stay in first class accomodation in a stunning part of Spain, this is the place for you. Highly recommended!!!!
Thanks again for your review. We try to make the villa a 'home from home'. Hope to see you there again soon.

"Beautiful setting - great views and great villa"
We have just returned from this lovely villa where we had a very peaceful week with fantastic weather. The villa was very well equipped and had some useful information about where to eat, shop etc. The English neighbours were very helpful and friendly. We ate in MIguels - walking distance from the villa and El Camping - a short drive away - both of which served good food at reasonable prices. Had intended to go to the water park in Torre del Mar but unfortunately it doesn't open till later in the month. Enjoyed a vist to the Cueva del Nerja and a variety of markets at Velez Malaga, Nerja and Torre del Mar. A lovely part of Spain - the temperature ranged between 30 and 40 degrees but there was a welcome breeze so it wasn't too stifling. We would definitely stay at Casa 23 again! Only down side was the beds were a little small length-wsie for my husband who is 6ft 6in!
Thank you for you're review...sorry about the beds. I think we shall seriously think about buying at least one larger bed for next season. Glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise.

"Superb Villa, with stunning views"
Have just returned from a wonderful 10 days stay in Casa 23. The villa was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Directions were spot on and the owner was on hand via email/phone to answer any queries etc. Also, the neighbours were very helpful with useful recommendations. Pictures do not do the view justice, it is truly breathtaking.. we are already missing it. Los Romanes is a very peaceful village, yet close enough to the coast/shops etc should the need take you. The kids loved the pool, which was also kept very clean. Cannot recommend this villa highly enough, you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be booking again, and have fallen in love with the area. Oh.. and if the lovely Spanish lady knocks on the door selling her local produce do try the salted almonds.... yummy (thanks for that recommendation Sue)
Many thanks for your swift review. I am so glad you had a wonderful time. I agree a photo cannot capture that view....seeing is believing. I will pass your comments on to Juani about her almonds! Hope to see you back there soon.

"Fantastic villa with amazing views"
Not really sure where to start! The villa is fantastic, very comfortable and clean with excellent facilities. There was just the 2 of us but this is also ideal for a family or friends. The view from the terrace is amazing both in the day and also at night with the villages all twinkling in the distance once the sun goes down. Miguels is a 2 minute walk and serves the most fanastic tapas at 1 euro per ration. The wine and beer is also very reasonable, around 1 euro per glass! The restaurant is very popular with both locals and holiday makers and people come from all over to sample the menu. We know this part of Spain very well and never stay in the same place twice but we have booked for next year already. Says it all really. Highly recommended.
Thanks very much for your review. We really appreciate it. I trust that your next stay will be as equally relaxing and enjoyable in 2012.
