Spend walm balmy nights dining al fresco - with lighting on the terrace, enjoy the most of the beautiful Andalucian summer nights - take the candle laterns out to the terrace and watch the night sky. It is absolutely beautiful, and if you can be there when there is a full moon over the lake..... wow!
The terrace at the rear of the house has an 8 x 4 meter swimming pool, with 'Roman' steps into the pool and a shallow shelf all the way around the sides. Lights in the pool for night swimming

The Andalucia region
Mediterranean Sea - Beach closest to home is TORRES DEL MAR, Calette del Mar, La Morche, Torrox. You can be there within 20 minutes. The famous town of Nerja is about half an hour drive along the coast. Nerja is great at weekends to promenade and enjoy the restaurants and bars.
Miles of sundrenched beaches strung with seafood restaurants just great for a leisurely lunch at a Chiringuito restaurant with fresh barbecued Sardines and an ice cold cerveza or vino!
Great for exploring inland rural Andalusia and beautiful whitewashed villages such as COMPETA, SAYALONGA, SEDELLA and COMARES to name but a few.
The Tejeda National Park with Mount Maroma are easily accessed on the other side of the Lake. Organised walks and horse riding days out can be booked during your stay.
NERJA CAVES, FRIGILANA, GRANADA, SEVILLE AND MALAGA, EL TORCA and the FLAMINGO LAKE are all great places to visit from Milagrossa
Los Romanes hosts three main annual, and many smaller, festivals. The first is during the first weekend in May when a romeria, involving a 4 kilometre procession following a scenic route around the lake, takes place. Refreshments and tapas are provided free-of-charge along the way. The three-day event finishes in a picturesque spot beside the lake with camping, BBQs, picnics, beer tents, horse shows and other amusements and attractions.
In June, the next fiesta takes place around the market square when flamenco music and dancing, food and wine are freely provided.
The main town festival takes place in mid-August when again different types of music plus flamenco are performed and huge pans of paella are cooked in the streets.
There is a mini-market and bar in the village as well as four main restaurants around the village, about five minutes at most. It doesn't stop here though as there are many more within a half hour drive. However, on many nights it is great just to get some fresh fish or meat and use the BBQ by the pool as much as you can!

"House lovely, views to savour, beaches easy to get to. A great holiday."
We had a great holiday and thought the house was lovely. Great views of the mountains and lake from the pool area meant we happily spent more time at the house than we had originally planned just having a totally chilled out time.
The folder at the house was useful. We thought the beaches from Torrox to Nerja and beyond were the best. Favourite beach Canuelo Playa. Pebbles but plenty of marine life to see when snorkelling, and even two beach side "tavernas". Restaurants in the area meant good food was within easy reach, but most in easy reach by car.
The couple looking after the house when called upon were always friendly and helpful. Canuelo Playa was their suggestion.
It is a lovely area and was just spot on as far as we were concerned for a holiday

"Sheer bliss; beautiful location & owners a pleasure to deal with"
Wow, stunning views, lovely finca, great company and nothing too much trouble to accomodate from the owners. We went a few years ago now but can't wait to go again. Not too far to get to the supermarket in Torre del Mar and it had EVERYTHING you'd possibly wish for. We had a 10 day stay and although love the beach, we didn't venture there because the villa was just so perfick and relaxing! The pool was gorgeous, evenings were divine, watching the sunset over the lake while eating asparagus or avacado or whatever took our fancy. The pool area had lighting so we had a few evening dips; I really can only say it was bliss! There is nothing NOT to like about this finca; book now xxx
