                                                          We had a very enjoyable holiday.

                                                          Alexander F.

                                                          We had a very enjoyable holiday in this lovely house. It was great to be there, the view to the lake, the mountains and the see is unforgettable. The rooms and there furniture are very stylish and comfortable. We liked very much the 3 terraces and also the short distance to the pool, because in the afternoon it can be very hot behind the house and at the pool it’s always a little windy and therefore less hot. Most of the times there are only a few people at the pool and it's a good area for relaxing. Cerros del Lago is a very quiet place beyond the hustle of Puerto Banus. The house is well equipped with everything that's necessary with one exception: There’s only one real sunbed at the house. For 4 persons – as we were – it’s not enough.

                                                          Vue panaromique, calme et confort

                                                          Jean-Claude S.

                                                          Maison confortable et bien équipée dans un village très calme et sécurisant. Décoration intérieure de très bon goût. Vue imprenable depuis grande terrasse et parfaite orientation pour bénéficier du soleil toute la journée. Parking aisé. Belle piscine à 100 mètres à peine.

                                                          What a great place !

                                                          Lucile L.

                                                          We spent a week there last September and it was fantastic.

                                                          The view is amazing. Siting on the terrace watching the sun setting is a real delight.

                                                          It is extremely quiet even in high season although supermarket, beach and lively Puerto Bañus is only 10 minutes away.

                                                          We enjoyed the large pool which we had just for us most of the time.

                                                          The house was very comfortable and clean. The equipment is great all what you need is there. We felt at home !

                                                          Casa Amalia, un petit coin de paradis

                                                          Amaury B.

                                                          Nous avons passé une semaine en famille dans cette charmante maison.

                                                          Très jolie vue comme sur les photos. Village très calme et sécurisant.

                                                          Nous avons particulièrement apprécié les magnifique piscines bien entretenues à quelques mètres à pied. Plages à quelques minutes en voiture.

                                                          Confort, jolie décoration et propreté dans la maison. A recommander!

                                                          Such a wonderful place to stay!!

                                                          Valentine W.

                                                          My stay at Casa Amalia was great! So quiet and such a nice peaceful view on the montains and on the sea. The house is well furnished and very comfortable, the terraces are nicely oriented and it's so pleasant to spend time there. The swimming pools are great and the environment is charming. We enjoyed being less than 10min from the beach but also not far from the center of Marbella and of Puerto Banus. I'm sure my family and I will come back soon!! Thanks for this awazing holiday!

                                                          quel magnifique endroit ! nous y retournerons !

                                                          Isabelle D.

                                                          Excellente situation, pas de passage, calme assuré dans un endroit avec une vue à tomber ! La maison est équipée avec tout le confort 2015 ! Plusieurs terrasses (pratique si l'on veut soit de l'ombre soit du soleil). A quelques pas grande piscine dans un clos fermé avec une superbe vue et grande terrasse . On y retournera pour jouer au golf dans le coin !
