This charming villa was completed in 2010 and amazes visitors with its contemporary and spacious ambience, not forgetting its incredible views that take in the area from the lighthouse on the Punta Mona Dela road above Almuñécar to Cabo Sacratif, Montril. The sea and the Marina del Este wharf are quite literally at your feet. Casa Geniol is in a peaceful neighbourhood and can be enjoyed all year around as it is not only a place to get away and relax in every sense, if not also a perfect base that will serve as an inspiration in the warm summer month when the Costa Tropical teems with life.
The villa has three air-conditioned bedrooms, each with a private terrace and sea views sleeping two people, as well as en suite bathrooms with WC.

This floor gives onto two open terraces with partial cover so that even when the weather is not so good you can still dine al fresco. The lounge, a central living area in the house, is one of Casa Geniol´s architectural gems. You can see a large part of the house from in front of the chimney of the warm, inviting lounge.
