The nearest beach is around 20 mins away by car, choose between well-known Nerja or Torre del Mar, or go to less known, smaller beaches as in Almayate or Benajarafe. In Torre del Mar you can rent pedalos, and in Nerja/Maro you can learn how to manage a kayak.

Many thanks for your review, we are always happy to receive feedback! We haven´t listed dish washer or tumble dryer on Las Golondrinas facility list, we have them stored in the garage but they are not connected to the electrics and not usable. We will remove them from the property altogether in order not to create confusion for future guests :) We didn´t know the juice presser was out of order, will get that fixed straight away.

We are 4 ladies just returned from this property having just spent 9 days there and already cannot wait to return. It,s true the photos cannot do it justice. Peaceful, tranquil, clean, lots of space in and around the villa and those spectacular views... lovely restaurants serving lovely food. Recommend Chaca restaurant for it's steaks just 5 mins by car. Easy access to towns, villages, beaches and shops because of the great roads and motorways. Villa has everything you need, very well equipped. Just one little tip Bruce..could you get a better tin opener cos we struggled with the old fashioned one haha. We found everyone so friendly out there where ever we went. Bruce & Gunilla the owners are two very lovely people who are on hand very quickly should you need them, and not forgetting the lovely Dave for chauffering us for a couple of nights out. Thanking you so much Bruce for making this one of the best holidays we have had. Please let us know how mum & kitties are doing we miss them very much. Debbie, Tracey, Tam & Elaine.
