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.

The shopping is also very good.

The airport is only a 30 minute drive from the propery, as is the main bus/train station.


The local village of Colmenar is known as the capital of the Axarquia region of Andalucia. It derives its name from the beehive or "colmena" and its organic honey can be bought today. The village also has a honey museum showing the process of collecting and producing the local honey.

The village lies in an elevated position with a church at the very top of the vllage. The views from here of the surrounding area are superb.

"Fabulous holiday with beautiful villa and views"

Set a few minutes drive from Colmenar, this villa sits in a very quiet location in the mountains with magnificent views. Villa was large, comfortable and clean. Had everything we needed. Beds were extremely comfy which made a nice change from previous holidays. Pool was lovely and cool in the hot days and had a decent size area, with some shade, around the pool for sunbathing. Everything was absolutely positive about this holiday and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Angela was extremely helpful and on hand if we needed her. We really hope to come back again very soon.

I thought this villa looked marvellous looking at the photos but they don't do it justice. The views from the swimming pool and all round about are spectacular. If you like the peace and quiet you cant go wrong with Casa Bellavista as long as you dont mind the sound of the goats bells as they are herded round the hills:) Angela and Terry were very friendly and most helpful during our stay. Although rural it is quite central for visiting any of the major resorts around Malaga and only half an hours drive from Malaga airport. We will definitely go back and take our daughter and partner.
