The Andalucia region


Pronounced Axarkia, is probably Andalusia’s best kept secret. With the advent of low-cost air travel and its great motorway link to Malaga and the Airport, the region is fast becoming a Mecca for the discerning holiday maker. Axarquia will dazzle you, with its stunning mountain scenery, the fantastic walking and horse riding opportunities. The region has some of the prettiest and best kept white-washed villages in Southern Spain, Frigiliana, Competa and Sayalonga to name but a few! When you want more ‘hustle and bustle’ you have the stylish town of Nerja in the East with its superb beaches and laid back cafe lifestyle. To the West lies vibrant, cosmopolitan Malaga with its grand architecture and great beaches. In between a dramatic coastline that is peppered with small villages and near deserted beaches, even in the height of summer. There is a fantastic golf course (Bavaria Golf), great shopping centres, a market every day of the week. There are restaurants aplenty that cater for every taste and pocket. There is a water park (Aqua Velis) in Velez-Malaga that offers a day of family fun. To top it all off, the region boosts the best climate in Europe, over 300 sunny days per year. You can come anytime of the year and expect great weather. There is so much to do, Axarquia is packed full of surprises, just waiting for you to discover them.

Canillas De Albaida

Car Hire is essential for you to enjoy and experience all the local area has to offer. The Villages of; Canillas De Albaida; Archez; Competa; Sallares; Sedella and Sayalonga are all within a 15 minute drive. In each of the villages you will find a wealth of, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and shops selling local produce.

"Peace and quiet, rest and relaxation, just what we needed."

The villa was exceptional, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We were met as promised and taken to the villa, and given a warm and friendly welcome. The pool was lovely, in its own gated area. The children loved the pool, games shack and table tennis area. The views were outstanding and well worth the drive. It provided all we needed for a relaxing family holiday, with something for everyone. We hope to go again in the future.

Thank you for your very positive comments and we are delighted that you had brilliant holiday, and those views will stay with you for a long time to come. I will pass on your comments to our management company that work really hard to make sure our high standards are met on every occasion. we look forward to welcoming you all again soon, thanks again for choosing us for your holidays:)

"Lovely Villa in Lovely Area"

The villa is beautiful and well equipped with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday. It's situated in a lovely area in the national park and the views are second to none. We stayed as a family of 9 (6 adults & 3 young children) and there was something to keep every one of us amused. The only drawback we found was the very narrow, unlit winding track up to the villa with sheer drops in places - which meant that we couldn't go out anywhere at night as it was far too dangerous to attempt in the dark. I'd definately recommend a holiday at Dama de la Sierra if relaxation and wonderful views are what you are after.

Thank you for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed the villa and its facilities. The road to the villa is perfectly safe and navigable in a standard car, as you have found. You are in the mountains and the height delivers the spectacular views, you can't have one without the other, unfortunately:( However, this does not seem to have detracted from your holiday experience, thankfully. We hope to welcome you all agin soon.:)

"Stunning location facilities and support - a holiday or great memories"

We highly recommend Villa la Dama del la Sierra. The views and ambiance are even better than the web site photos if that is possible. The views just hold your attention from morning to night. The air and light quality are crystal clear. One evening a silent spectacular lightning storm over the distant North African coast transfixed us. The facilities are top quality appropriate for all ages, group mixes, relaxation styles and catering. Our three generation extended family party wanted for nothing. Excellent games shack and mini footbal / basket ball area, immediate access to the hills for walks and runs. Friendly and efficient service from start to finish and lexcellent local contact available too. Highly recommended.

Thank you, I will pass on your comments to our management company that work very hard to make sure everything is just right for a perfect holiday. We hope to see you all again soon here in sunny Competa:)
