Location description from owner
The Andalucia region
The many varieties of subtropical plants with the combination of sea, sun, light & water make the charm of the white, rural, Andalucía villages the escape that they are, to the traditional Spain, where the inhabitants are warm & friendly, the restaurants & bars welcoming with 3 course lunchtime menus at 8€ including wine, affordable for all.
Casarabonela, Ardales and El Burgo villages are about a 15 minute drive, are typical white washed villages of Moorish origin, retaining narrow, winding streets & Moorish-inspired architecture & handicraft skills, with most services & good restaurants available. Situated around the natural park of The Sierra de Las Nieves, one of the most beautiful National Parks in all Andalucía & one of Spain's richest natural enclaves, protected by UNESCO with Biosphere Reserve status. It boasts an impressive array of both flora & fauna & an abundance of wildlife including eagles, boar, lynx, cougar, pine martins, partridge etc. & yet you are within about an hour of the glitz of Marbella, Puerto Banus & the Costa del Sol generally. Day trips may be made to cities such as Ronda, Granada, Marbella, Antequera, Gibraltar, Cordoba & Sevilla.
To the North, Ardales is on the Western point of the most some extensive & beautifully stunning fresh water lakes stretching through to El Chorro, good for walking, swimming, & canoeing, a couple of excellent restaurants & bars The El Chorro gorge & Antequera, with the enigmatic natural stone structures of El Torcal National Park.
If a day at the beach is required you can be on the coast at a beachside restaurant in 60 minutes. The coastal plain between the mountain ranges has a variety of quite different towns & resorts; including: Málaga, Marbella, Benalmadena, Mijas, Toremolinos, Estepona, & Fuengirola. At the far extremity is the historic port of Cadiz with Gibraltar in between & ferry trips available to Morocco from Algeciras. With such a vast number & variety, it makes it more enjoyable to visit a different resort rather than be in the same surroundings of just one. Therefore being based at Villa Flores for your stay it is convenient as a centre to explore both the coast & the countryside, although, we do not expect you will want to venture away from here except for the 1 trip to confirm there is no where you would rather be. Golf is very popular in the area with many courses available.
Málaga is an elegant port, retaining many of its original Moorish buildings, the Alcazar & hilltop castle giving impressive views. The inner city, just behind the harbour, has palm lined pedestrianized streets with interesting & impressive shops, café bars & restaurants. There is also the Cathedral & as Picasso's birthplace, there is a museum dedicated to the artist. There are many festivals in the City & area generally, which, with the wealth & influence of cultural heritage left by the Moors, some of this influence is reflected in the fiestas, music, architecture & dance, together with the magic of gipsy culture, costume, horse drawn carriages & dressage.

“An ideal rural retreat”
We arrived for a short stay on the 6th Jan and were amazed at the beautiful setting. The rooms were very comfortable ,lovely kitchen and a very spacious lounge with a log fire. Took in many walks and visited nearby lakes. Altogether a very relaxing time. and I wouldnt hesitate to return there later in the year and perhaps make use of the lovely pool. I have since passed on the details of this magnificent villa to some friends of mine. A thoroughly good time. Brillant. Thankyou
Many thanks for taking the time to write your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay, and as you say, enjoyable in all seasons throughout the year. Look forward to seeing you all again for a return visit.
“It turns out heaven is a place on earth.”
The perfect villa, in the perfect location with the perfect host! We booked the holiday last year so have had a long time to look forward to it and build our expectations and it exceeding on all counts. The villa is easily accessible from Malaga airport (bit bendy for last few kilometers but just go slowly!) and what a treat awaits you when you arrive! Roma welcomes you so warmly and is incredibly helpful, it is very reassuring to have her to hand if you need any help and yet you wouldn't know she was there otherwise. The views are literally breathtaking from the villa, we could scarcely believe it was real and the entire surrounding area lives up to that. The house itself it beautifully furnished to a very high standard and has everything you could need and more. The pool area is heavenly with an amazing outdoor cooking area that produced a spectacular meal enjoyed with that view again. We loved exploring the area, especially Casarabonela, the lakes and Ronda. Not a day went by when of didn't say that we couldn't believe we were somewhere so special and had never been happier. I could not recommend this villa more highly.
It gives me so much pleasure to know how much you enjoyed your holiday and your time in Villa Flores, I am very glad that you are already referring your friends and I look forward to seeing you again very soon, it was a great pleasure meeting you all.
“Relaxing family break”
We stayed as a family for a week at Roma's amazing villa. The location was beautiful and so peaceful, it truly was an amazing place. Spacious and homely, room for everyone. The pool and BBQ areas were well utilised you had all you needed there. Top tip, take insect repellent! Roma was great with her tips on the area and advice on places to see, and was so helpful going above and beyond when we realised we had left something behind she went out of her way to ensure this was safely returned - a perfect host!
It was a great pleasure to meet all the family, three generations! And I am so happy you all enjoyed your stay here in Villa Flores and enjoyed the beautiful mountains. You were the perfect family group, perfect guests, and I look forward to your visit another time!!
