Casa la BuenaVida is our much loved family villa built by a local Spanish builder in 2002. Initially the builder wanted the home for himself and his family but about half way through the building work, we came across it, saw the wonderful location, fell in love with it and made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Today, we are very good friends with the builder who we think must have regretted his decision because now he has become one of our neighbours!

Our hillside is dotted with some very impressive, exclusive properties but although many have fine views, none compare to the stunning 360 degree vistas of Casa la BuenaVida.

Breathtaking views, alfresco dining, brilliant BBQ's, gorgeous swimming pool, romantic moonlit skies, invigorating sunrises, red glowing sunsets. The perfect place to relax - the perfect place for families, for weddings, for small groups, for large groups, for sharing with friends........

......... and when you can steal yourself away, the shops, bars, beaches and restaurants of Nerja are a picturesque ten to fifteen minute drive away.

The Andalucia region

Located in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, in the westernmost Mediterranean area, the Costa del Sol spans 161 kilometres of coastline in Málaga Province, and it seamlessly goes into the neighbouring provinces of Granada and Cádiz.

The capital, Málaga City, is in right in the centre, being the hub of the communication network and dividing the Costa del Sol into two big areas: the east and the west.

Going eastwards from Málaga City, you will come to Rincón de la Victoria (12 kilometres), where many Malagueños have their weekend homes; Vélez-Málaga and its coastal district, Torre del Mar (35 kilometres), which attracts mostly visitors from Spain; Torrox (46 kilometres), where many Germans have chosen the Costa del Sol for their second homes; and Nerja (50 kilometres), the most popular municipality in the region.

The Western Costa del Sol is the more cosmopolitan. Its municipalities are Torremolinos (15 kilometres from Málaga City), Fuengirola (27 kilometres), Mijas (31 kilometres), Marbella (58 kilometres), Estepona (85 kilometres), and Manilva (97 kilometres).

All these towns, from Nerja to Manilva, are connected by the Mediterranean highway and the AP-7 tollway from Fuengirola to Cádiz.


Nerja is on the seashore some 50 kilometres from Malaga on the N340 coastal highway, and marks the eastern tip of Malaga's Costa del Sol. Once a sleepy fishing village, the town now has a population of over 12,000. Nerja boasts 16 kilometres of beaches with shingly sand and sparkling clear water. All major water sports are available here, including water skiing, scuba diving and sailing.

Flanked by a dramatic mountain range, Sierra Almijara, to the east, the town has fortunately managed to avoid being blighted by the concrete high-rise developments which have been the inevitable result of the tourist boom in some coastal resorts. The old quarter of the town is still virtually unchanged with narrow winding streets, horse drawn carriages, whitewashed houses with wrought iron terraces overflowing with geraniums and other exotic plants.

At the heart of Nerja is its spectacular Balcón de Europa, the "Balcony of Europe", a magnificent promenade along the edge of a towering cliff, once the site of the great Moorish castle, with sweeping panoramic views of the Mediterranean and the small coves and beaches below, against an awesome backdrop of hazy blue mountains.

There are plenty of restaurants and cafes here to choose from, and the visitor can hire a horse-drawn carriage to explore the most romantic corner of the town.

The town's monuments include the 17th century Church of El Salvador, in a style which is a charming mixture of baroque and Moorish, or mudéjar, and the beautiful Gardens of Capistrano Playa, which descend to Burriana Beach.

However, Nerja's most spectacular attraction is undoubtedly its fascinating caves, located just three kilometres from the centre of town. They include archaeological treasures such as paintings over 20,000 years old and other pre-historic remains. One of the enormous natural caverns has been transformed into a concert hall, where many performances are staged during the summer.

"Lovely spainish style villa."

This a a great place for a family holiday we are 3 days from returning home, Not going to moan like others about the cost of taxis as it is what it is. The drive up is a bit nervy but if I can do it … More

Thank you so much for your review and very kind comments.

Mandy and I think you are quite amazing. You say, you don't like heights and are a nervy driver on hills and yet you arrive in a fully laden 9 seater bus with 8 people and attendant luggage! We normally only recommend normal cars!

Along the coast in Andalucia, larger quality properties tend to be up in the hills. Many of the roads serving them are no more than narrow stoney tracks. The hillside road to our villa and surrounding properties is tarmac and concrete all the way with several passing places.

As many of our guests tell us, the 10 minute journey up to Casa la BuenaVida from the main road is well worth the effort. The reward is an exclusive location, spectacular views and a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the town.

Hope to see you and your family next year.

"Blissful, we wouldn't have changed a thing!"

Beautiful villa, beautiful views, beautiful weather, everything we were hoping for. Well cleaned and maintained the villa had a lovely pool of a good size which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Sitting on the balcony on a selection of comfy furniture with a view of both mountains and sea was a very fine way to start or finish the day. When the sun did go down there was lots of space to eat, relax and utilise the wifi or have a game pool on a table that is still in good condition (not always the case!). My only recommendation would be having a diesel hire care for the drive up but its well worth the drive for the views.

"Fantastic villa - great views and excellent quality accommodation"

We have just returned from an early season visit. The villa is maintained and fitted out to a very high standard. It is set in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle and offers panoramic views towards the coast and across the surrounding countryside. It was a real treat to wake up in the morning, open the blinds, see the stunningly blue sky and listen to the birds singing. This is a great villa for a private and secluded holiday and has facilities for the entire family. In addition to the sunny pool area, there is a large shaded veranda, so you can always get away from the sun, the pool table would be a hit with our grown up children {although they didn't come with us this time}. The journey up the last hill to the villa is admittedly steep, however, the roadside is lined with beautiful wild flowers giving a feel of being in the real Spanish countryside. The resort town of Nerja is not far and has everything you could need, bars, restaurants, shops etc . Also fairly close is the lovely hillside town of Frigiliana, very Spanish and one of the places visible within the panoramic views from the villa. In a nutshell we had a fabulously relaxing break and would have no hesitation in making a return visit.

"Brilliant holiday as always!"

This was our fifth visit to the villa over the past 9 years and once again we all had a fantastic time. We took our teenage daughter and her best friend, 20 year old daughter and boyfriend and our parents and everyone enjoyed the holiday and wants to return. The villa is superb and offers all your home comforts with more besides, with the pool table and pool being a continued source of entertainment. The views from the villa are breath taking both during the day and especially at night, looking down on the town below. The town, which is only a few minutes drive away, offers a large selection of excellent restaurants and shops to browse.

We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday in a faultless villa and are looking forward to planning our next visit.

"Stunning, beautiful and worth every penny"

Congratulations on your wedding and thank you for choosing our villa. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Regarding taxis - these all tend to be very smart Mercedes cars and I agree that although there are 7 seater taxis available, larger minibuses are not.

17 euros is the normal fare but when this is shared between (say) four people, it can be cheaper than paying for parking.

"Highest quality holiday to switch off, relax and enjoy!"

Have just returned from spending absolutely fabulous week with friends at the Villa of very high quality, providing all needs and facilities that we could of wished for.
I found we were able to relax in near silence and seclusion that's it's location allowed, enabling us all to switch off completely from usual hustle and bustle that's has been experienced and associated with similar travel.
Located within easy reach of traditional, non-commercial Spanish beach resort of 'Nerja' and mountain village of 'Frigiliana', allowed for for varying day to night experiences that suited everyone's requirements.
