The Andalucia region
The Axarquia region is East of Malaga where we enjoy tropical climates and beautiful mountain ranges close to the sea. Many of the coastal villages have become fashionable resorts yet still retain their charm. Eating and drinking is a real pleaure in sidewalk cafés or on the beach.
Granada and the Siera Nevada are around an hour drive from the Lake area where you can ski from November to May. Alhama de Granada boasts natural hot springs open to the public all year round.
The Nerja Caves are well worth a visit and host annual music and dance festivals within its famous caverns. At the foot of Nerja town there is a winding footpath joining several coves with some great beaches to be discovered. Head to the cosmopolitan marinas of Marbella. Costa del Sol/Axarquia really does offer something for everyone.
You can expect a stunning sunset and magnificent mountain views from Lake Vinuela. In winter snow-capped mountain ranges are reflected in the aquamarine waters, before they sweep down to the beaches and towns of the Costa del Sol. Enjoy a tapas, sample the local wine or try horse riding around the Lake. Come and try the location in October/November you will be surprised at how glorious it is in these months.
Join in the fun at one of many fiestas held in all the villages and towns throughout the year. Local shops can be found at the Eroski Centre, and there is a camping area nearby selling local produce. Vinuela has banking facilities, supermarkets and a health centre.
If you are inspired to paint this is a lovely area to use as a subject. The nearest village would be Los Romanes, which is about a 10 minute drive and has a supermarket to pick up those essentials. The local seaside resort of Torre del Mar is a 15/20 minute drive away.

"Lovely place to chill"
Beautifully styled apartment in peaceful location. Great views over the surrounding countryside. The owners were charming and helpful but never intrusive. If you want a change of pace it's only a short drive to the beach and the buzz of Torre del Mar. Highly recommended.

"A lovely peaceful location."
We had a lovely stay at the "Attico". Although it's in a nice quite location, it's only10 mins or so from a village with a shop, bar and restaurant. A perfect location for exploring the pretty mountain villages of this part of Andalucia, mountains and beaches. A short stroll from the Attico brings you to fantastic views of lake Vinuela and the mountains.

"FABULOUS GET AWAY FROM IT ALL VACATION"
The attico is the perfect location for a relaxing twosome holiday.
A car is a must to get around, beach and shops 20mins drive away.
Located in a scenic and wide open landscape. Plenty of trails for hiking. Owners are helpful, hospitable and friendly. Cant wait to go back!

"A little scruffy"
2km from the main road, up a narrow winding steep single track road. It's ok until you have to go on the unmade dirt road, half a kilometer. Make sure you have full cover for the under carriage o… More
The property is on a mountain side, 1,500 ft altitude and approached by a mountain road and track, all clearly indicated in the photos on the website. This should be no problem for a competent driver in a suitable car. Why refer to this after you chose to rent the property? If you don't want to drive on a track book an alternative property.
The property is in a mountain environment and subject to seasonal winds, which move around leaves and dust, the 'debris' you refer to. The pool and surrounding area are cleaned twice a week and the pool netted daily, the water quality is tested weekly. A rental of £33per night does not cover the cost of a full time pool attendant. You booked a self catering holiday and were free to net the pool yourself at any time. Glass table tops in the pool area despite being cleaned were a bad choice by us and will be replaced in due course.
Both roof terraces were swept when the property was cleaned prior to your arrival, also the property is not advertised with air conditioning. The scruffy area you refer to is where maintenance materials and equipment are kept, no pretty but essential, and this area is not in the eye line of the views from the property and is not part of the rental area. No one else has had a problem with Wifi, maybe you need a more powerful device. You are entitled to your view of the bathroom decoration. This is a rural cortijo with a simple basic rustic style, clearly indicated in the photographs. One set of towels are provided, as per property details. If you wanted or needed more, you only had to ask, and there is a washing machine in the kitchen.
The property is advertised as a peaceful rural mountain style holiday for visitors who want a more 'Real Spain' type vacation. Some of your comments and observations clearly indicate that you mis-booked, it is your responsibility to research where you are going, the local facilities and environment etc. We are sorry your visit to rural Spain fell below expectations and hope it doesn't put you off visiting Spain again, maybe a villa by La Vinuela or hotel on the Costas next time.

"The best holiday of my life - a fantastic location, beautiful house and nice owners"
Me and my wife were very happy to stay, the place in the Vinuela area is simply gorgeous, the owners are very friendly, the rental house is spacious and well equipped, a good location to go to swim in the sea or to visit famous Spanish cities like Granada, Malaga, Cordoba, Sevilla, or to go to Gibraltar. I strongly recommend!

"nice place, nice apartment but not given true information"
On arrival we found the apartment very nice and the location lovely- although the drive up to the apartment was difficult and not suitable for people who do not travel well or have little nerve in a car. It states that there is a private pool- which is untrue, we had to share the pool for 10 days(out of our 14 days there) with the owners daughter and her boyfriend. Which was a massive disappointment to both myself and my partner, after booking the apartment with a private pool. Also never were we shown a washing machine and had to do our washing by hand on holiday.
Other than this the actual apartment and location were lovely and the owners did help where possible.
Very pleased you found the Attico and location lovely and commented that we were helpful to you. You arrived in the dark late at night, we do not have street lights up a mountain in Andalucia, the main track is tarmacked with only 3 minutes of additional graded dirt track which is easily driveable in normal hire cars, if you are a nervous driver a car with a bit of oomph is better. The pool is private in a private house, shared only on very few occasions with the occupants of the house, i.e. other family members that may be there at the time, and we very much give priority to Attico renters and respect their privacy. There is not a tick box for this scenario. Your calculations are unfair, our daughter was only here for 7 days and used the pool on only 3 occasions. Sorry you were disappointed, but I would like to allow my family to have a swim now and again in our pool during holiday times too. There are laundry facilities on site but not in the Attico. If you had asked we would have taken care of this for you. You stated on your departure that you very much enjoyed your stay with us in Andalucia and we hope you will return another time.
