“Great Accommodation. Beautiful Nature. Wonderful Views. Gracious Hosts.Peace” We have stayed at El Arpa before and it gets better every time we come.
The accommodation is comfortable and the views are terrific.
It is an easy 45 minute drive from north west of Malaga.
The walking is good, from easy to challenging .
Wildlife abounds from birds, hoopoe, bee-eater,,sardinian warbler, etc., turtles on lake, wild goats, foxes, and many other species.
Rikke and Michael , the hosts will help in any they can and have detailed information on the area.
El Arpa is a lovely peaceful retreat!
“Perfect, peaceful, pure bliss!” Finca Bjorn is a lovely 4 bedroom villa in the Sierra Nieves National Park, Andaluscia. This was the perfect location to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and the stresses of home. Located up a country road overlooking a lovely fertile valley near to Tolox and Alozaina vllages outside of Coin there is certainly civilisation and restaurants within a 15 minute drive, however this is more a get away from it all location.
The view from the terrace is amazing, with Eagles soaring over the salt water pool and a large shaded table to eat outside we enjoyed many nights in cooking on the modern Weber gas BBQ. The central air con is a blessing in the heat of summer but the gentle breezes can make evenings on the terrace delightful. We loved our daily swim in the salt water pool, refreshing in the heat. With 8 in our party it was the perfect size property, well decorated, modern kitchen and ideal location.
The nearby villages of Alozaina and Tolox have several bar/restaurants for tapas and simple grilled meat/fish - though the Mirador open fri-sun is a delight, have the pork in pepper sauce but skip the starter! Due to the location expect peace and quiet - this is not the place to party hard. Come prepared to unwind so make sure you stock up well and enjoy the tanquility of a country villa.
“Wounderful views - magnificent stay” We stayed in the house in April. The booking process was very easy, communication as well as information provided upon the stay was very good. We met the local manager on a gas station near the house, so there was no trouble to find it. The location of the house is beautiful with an excelent view on the ocean. The rooms where very clean and everything we needed was on hand. We choose the "tower apartment" because kitchen and bedroom are seperated so that we don't sleep and cook in the same room. The other apartment would had the advantage though to be next to the pool. Supermarkets are reachable within 10 minutes by car. We liked the pool very much where we spend many hours. All in all we had an excelent stay for the money we payed.
“Huge beautiful finca in orchard” We stayed in this villa in May 2015 for a week with family and kids. Everyone loved the huge house, the swimming pool and the amazing finca with more than 40 different types of fruit trees. It was so much fun hand-picking fruit from the trees! We loved the peace and quiet of the place, pure air, and being surrounded by nature. The house is a huge, relatively old country house, well maintained although a couple of the bathrooms need a bit of redecoration but it´s not a big deal. It is amazing value for money and you´d recommend everyone to go!
