What a lovely break

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Lisette. It's a bit off the beaten track, but well worth the effort. David has thought of everything and the house is fully equipped with everything you need...and more.

We sunbathed, read, slept, walked into Almachar for coffee and watched DVDs in the after's what I wanted and what I got ;-)

Fantastic quiet villa, highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a secluded and very beautiful spot. Very peaceful and relaxing..a real 'get away'.

Villa was so well equipped, the kitchen had more utensils than our own!

The pool was fantastic for our boys and lots of pool toys for them to play with too.

The villa is extremely spacious and well laid out and the choice of terraces is also a bonus. Inside and out had so much space.

The track was what you might expect in the hills but fine once you got used to it and we managed it in a corsa.

Overalll a wonderful relaxing holiday, we will definately try to holiday there again.

We had a lovely stay - it exceeded our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Our expectations were exceeded - brilliant location: a bit of the beaten track, beautiful home with all appliances you can dream off, charming swimming pool, BBQ and pizza oven. We felt really spoilt. We made our own focaccias and barbequed outside, sitting in the setting sun with a glass of wine; absolutely magical! The stunning views, great jogging routes, the sereneity, friendly neighbour, and the experience in general, was superb. The heat was at times on the verge of being unbearable, but the fans, cool tiles and the swimming pool brought a welcome relief. Definitely a place and experience we would like to return to.

Thank you so much, David! And thank you Lara, for welcoming us. Thank you Carlos, for topping up the pool and got rid of a wasp nest.

Paradise in Rural Almachar

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Casa Lisette at twilight and the views were spectacular! A great start to a wonderful fortnight. All previous comments are correct in its description of this beautiful house.

Thank you David and Debra for sharing your property and giving us the wonderful experience of exploring Almachar and meeting Francisco and his friendly mule.

Also thank you to Lara and Oscar for being at the end of the phone when needing help with directions and information.

We will definitely be back with our family.

Absolutely Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful hilltop location! Arrived in the dark and it was still a Wow! moment. Superb villa, waking up to views over the surrounding villages and mountains. Close enough to see the Mediterranean and a short drive (17km) to dip your toes in it. A dream kitchen, spacious accommodation and three bedrooms. The Pool area with sun loungers and inflatables, BBQ and Pizza Oven, a choice of four terraces to relax on. Local villages of Cajiz and Iznate with shops, bars and friendly people too.

There's​ maps and lots of information on the local area in business card folders on the bookshelf most with recommendations by those that went there.

Loved it so much we will be going back....

Excellent accommodation, phenomenal views, very relaxing and well equipped house.

  • 5 of 5

David was very helpful communicating with us prior to the holiday, when we arrived Lara met us and advised us about events happening on the area. We had a fabulous week, the house is beautiful and the views are breath taking. The drive to access the house takes a bit of getting used to and I would not want to have found it in the dark but we did get used to the drive and it was certainly worth it.

Highly recommended.

Almáchar is situated in the heart of the Axarquía at 200 metres above sea level, 35 kilometres from Malaga city and 14 from Vélez-Málaga. It is built on a small hill between the El Borge and Iznate, close to the Mt Morona and surrounded by vineyards, olive and cereal groves.

Both Iznate and Almachar have many bars of which all serve food, trundle down the narrow white washed streets and explore.

Other places of interest are the Plaza del Pueblo (town square) where, if you look in the direction of El Borge village, you get a beautiful, panoramic view; the Cueva del Toro (the Bull's Cave), found on the outskirts of the town; the Museo de la Pasa (Raisin Museum), which is considered of archaeological interest; and the town fountain where according to the local legend, the Moors buried their treasures before being expelled from the land. Have ride up to Comares which is one of highest village Andalusia.

Heading down to the coast, Torre del Mar is the nearest resort from the casa. Restaurants, bars line its beautiful promenade.
