From the owner

Our comfortable and well maitained villa is set in the peace and tranquillity of the Andalucian countryside, in one of Spains best kept secrets, the Axarquia. This beautiful villa with its own private gardens and pool , has the most stunning views across the valleys and white villages. Olive and almond trees grow in abundance on the land directly around the property and an old Andalucian farmhouse and palm trees and lush mediterranan plants and flowers adorn the garden and patios. In the cooler evenings, goats lazily tinkle past on the land below, with Huan our local shepherd, all enjoying a reprieve from the hot summer days.
It is an ideal location for those who wish to de stress, relax and unwind .
Welcome to inland Spain.

This delightful property has its own private pool which really is the "piece de resistance". Set below the property on a spectacular balcony , it creates a feeling of being ontop of the world. The views are truly magnificent. There are ample sun bathing terraces surrounding the pool ,with shade provided by a lovely old palm tree. Further terraces are located just above the pool area along with the shaded outside dining area and BBQ. Potted plants and flowers add to the ambience of this lovely haven tucked away in the Real Spain.
Remaining at the property, the theme is definitely one of relaxation, sunbathing, reading and swimming with family and /or friends. The BBQ and covered dining area are conducive to spending lazy lunches or relaxing evening meals, experiencing the wonderful scenery with family and friends.The local villages twinkle in the distance and the stars twinkle even brighter in the dusky, darkened skies

The villa is extremely spacious with light airy rooms, large sofas, open plan kitchen and provides exceptional comfort for large or small parties alike.
The lounge area has 2 sprung edge sofas, a flat screen tv, dvd, music centre and wood burning stove. The dining area seating 6 people, is located next to the open plan kitchen with breakfast bar. The kitchen is decorated out in pretty Andalucian tiles, fitted solid wood cupboards, fridge/freezer. kettle, toaster, coffee machine etc.
The village of Colmenar, located a short drive away provides an excellent selection of bars, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, 24hr medical centre and a bustling weekly market.

Casa Bellavista is an ideal base for day trips to historic Granada, cosmopolitan Marbella, Malaga old town, its cathederal and Picasso museum, Nerja and the caves at Maro, the extensive beaches and excellent golf courses. Locally we are close to the Torcal and Montes de Malaga National Parks, ideal for cool, relaxing walks in the pine forestsand for a light lunch at one of the many Spanish venta along the way. This location is also a great area for horse riding, cycling, bird watching and exploring the famous white villages of the Axarquia steeped in history, traditions and culture.

Along the coast there are excellent shopping centres, leisure parks , water parks , zoos and marinas. Historical day trips, time at the beach with the family, adventuring or just relaxing in the beautiful sunshine by your own private pool, the choice is yours!

Owner's reply:
Thank you for your review. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay in our villa, this is a first!. The villa is furnished in rustic style, with sprung edge sofas, fully sprung mattresses, 100% cotton sheets, flat screen tv, pool towels provided....etc. It is located in the beautiful countryside of Andalucia, has fabulous views, its own lovely pool and gardens and is located in the grounds of an 200 year old Andalucian farmhouse. All of this is stated catagorically in the details. There are some great restaurants and tapas bars in Colmenar, the local village which is 5 minutes away, also in the other local villages. Malaga which is only 25 minutes has an array of fabulous restaurants ( 1 with Michelin star) shops, tapas bars etc. I feel you booked in the wrong place as it appears you went to Benalmadena every day! This is not close to the villa and there are many places a lot closer! We are also not a modern villa on the Costa del Sol and are not advertised as so. We are very happy wth our villa and as from previous reviews, you can see guests are also. Our cleaners are also registered at the Town Hall and hold the appropriate certificates and are very concientious. However I am saddened that you did not enjoy your holiday and suggest that you read the villa descriptions thoroughly in future to ensure that you book to suit your requirements. Kind Regards Angela
