Spain holiday 










This is a truly beautiful, luxury villa which comfortably sleeps 8 people and has 2,000 square metres of gardens, lawns with stunning mountain views, all contained with in electronic gates and there is shaded provision for up to 3 cars.


It is an ideal villa for a large family, being spacious and with plenty of entertainment for young and old alike. There is optional air-conditioning/ integrated heating and free WiFi is available . If any of the adults are energetic, there is plenty of keep-fit equipment:- weights machine; exercise bike; sit-up machine and there is the possibility of renting 2 mountain bikes- however if your idea of a holiday is just an opportunity to relax and unwind, you will be spoilt by the choice of shaded and full sun areas for just sitting or lying around the beautiful salt waterswimming pool, shaped like a grand piano, or away from the pool, soaking up the stunning mountain views. If your party consists of energetic children who need entertainment while you relax, they will be spoilt for choice- as well as the private swimming pool, there is a basketball ball shooting area, a boules pitch, mini-golf, darts and table tennis. There is an outdoor WC and an outdoor kitchen/food preparation area next to the large, well-equipped barbecue.

The whole outdoor area can be lit-up at light and if you there are musicians amongst you, you are welcome to make use of the piano and guitar provided for some memorable musical soirées. The indoor space is spacious, cool with high wooden ceilings and it is tastefully furnished throughout with high quality furnishings. The ground floor is open-plan (apart from a downstairs bathroom) and has a magnificent dining area (large, solid wooden table with seating for up to 12), a well-equipped kitchen- dishwasher, oven and an abundance of crockery, cutlery, glasses and cooking utensils. The lounge area has large comfortable sofas around a log fire place for winter use and a large TV and DVD and playstation. We can provide a selection of DVD´s and English books . The music corner with piano and guitar is adjacent to the comfortable lounge area. All the bedrooms are situated on the first floor and lead off the central landing area. All 3 are spacious and have double beds. There are also 2 further single beds which are normally in bedroom 3 which serves as a family room, but one of these can be moved into one of the other bedrooms should you wish. The upstairs bathroom is a full bathroom with powerful shower and bath, bidet WC.

A 10 minute (steep) walk from the villa takes you into the quaint white village of Carratraca- famous in its hey-day in the 19th century for its casino, bullring and thermal spa and the European aristocracy and royalty flocked here. Unfortunately the village has seen very lean times since- no longer has the casino, but the thermal spas have been recently renovated which provide a wonderful relaxing day where you can enjoy the Roman baths with their curing waters and have any number of beauty treatments. There are some lovely little tapas bars and restaurants and two of the restaurants offer a free taxi service for our guests if you do not want to walk or drive. Although you are likely to want to spend a lot of time in and around this lovely villa, we would recommend hiring a car (we offer 15% discount on car hire from Malaga airport) as the surrounding area is some of the most beautiful in Spain. The villa is just 10 minutes drive from the fabulous turquoise lakes that form the Andalucian lake district. Here you can spend a day, swimming in the surprisingly warm water, hiring a pedalo or canoe and then enjoying a beer and tapas, or excellent meal at one of the lakeside restaurants. This is a “must” day out if you have children- very little time in the car and great fun. Although you will be experiencing the “REAL Spain” at Finca EL Albero,it is conveniently located just 32 kilometers from Malaga and 63 from Marbella. It is an easy 40-45 minutes drive from the airport . A day out at the traditional tourist areas of the Costa del Sol is an easy drive and we provide directions to either a great sandy Spanish beach with ample parking or the Benalmadena port with its extensive choice of restaurants and designer boutiques. – Both of these are less than 45 minutes drive. The water park which is usually a hit with youngsters is only 30 minutes drive- again we provide comprehensive directions. If you wish to tour the sites of Andalucia, this is an ideal base, with Ronda, Cordoba, Granada, Seville, Marbella, Puerto Banus and Gibraltar all within easy daily travelling distance.
