Secluded and relaxing location. Perfect to recharge those batteries. Looked better than in the photos if that was possible. We loved our holiday Thanks to Gill, Graham and Kelly.
Absolutely lovely villa, nice size and all facilities you could need. The swimming pool was cold at this time of year but kids enjoyed it anyway. Lots of places to visit within easy reach but you should be aware there are a lot of twisty mountain roads, this place is very remote. Nice and peaceful break.
Beautiful place! Stunning view!
We - a family with 2 adults, 1 teenager and 2 children really enjoyed our stay in the beautiful Casa de Piedra! The house, garden and the surrounding is absolutely stunning and we were glad to have chosen to stay in the countryside during the Semana Santa instead of in the overcrowded city of Malaga. It is a very peaceful place, where you can perfectly relax. Although it was still quite cool, we were able to take a short refreshing bath in the pool on a sunny day. Must be even more fabulous in summertime. The house is well equipped and we appreciated very much the welcome package. Our 17 year old daughter was fine with her own little apartment in the annex of the house.
We undertook various lovely excursions to the close mountains, Torcal de Antequera, the Alhambra de Granada etc.. It seems quite important for us to have a car.
Please keep in mind to bring warm clothes at this time of the year, because when the sun is gone it becomes quite cold and it takes long until the large living room gets heated up by the wood oven.
We highly recommend a stay in the Casa de Piedras and hope to come back soon!
Thank you Gil and Graham!
Just returned from a perfect break away at this villa.
We cannot recommend this place highly enough, facilities are 2ns to none and the views are spectacular
Communication and information provided was excellent and plenty of support once there if required
Can't wait to go back
Third visit to Casa de Piedra.
Casa de Piedra is an extremely well kept property that is equipped with everything you will need for your holiday. What you will not appreciate from the photos is just what a beautiful tranquil location it is, set amongst the hills above Malaga. If you stay you must go to El Torcal the national park which is about 20 mins drive away. We would also recommend Lobo (wolf) Park which is a 45 min drive inland towards Antequera. Also a visit to Malaga is well worth while. Try Tapas at the Market and fresh BBQ fish at one of the beach bars. For more local food go to Rincons in Villanueva. Tapas is fantastic there (and so cheap). All in all another amazing visit to this villa. Looking forwards to our next trip already.
A paradise escape
If you wish to escape the busy and stressful life, this is the right place!!! It is a paradise with much privacy, amazing view, nice pool, all that you need villa. A car is much needed. The road from the airport till here was an adventure. We loved every moment that we spent here in this piece of paradise!!!!
If you want a restful, ‘get away from it all’ place, where you can enjoy scenic roads, visit interesting places and get down to the beaches of Costa del Sol, this is it! The villa has superb, panoramic views over hills to the sea. Nearby Almogia is a whitewashed hill-side village, with steep, narrow streets, small corner shops, restaurants and typical Spanish bars. There is a much greater range of shops, restaurants and bars in the town of Villanueva. Malaga and Antequera are more up-market and offer entertainment including flamenco dancing, also history and places of interest (eg Picasso museum, Botanical gardens and Antequera's caves, bull ring and a fascinating castle and Alcazar). Magnificent traditional Ferias in the larger cities and local fiestas in smaller villages happen at different times of the year with dancing, parades of horses and general partying! Family days out include water parks, zoos, the El Chorro gorge with its three turquoise lakes, the El Torcal Nature Reserve with amazing limestone formations and walks, the Lobo (Wolf) Park and Fuente do Piedra lagoon, famous for its flamingos, all within 30-60 minutes drive. You can also venture further to places such as Granada (with the stunning Alhambra), Ronda (with its famous gorge and massive bull ring - the largest in Spain), Cordoba (with its beautiful Mezquita) and Seville (with its cathedral and Alcazar) Along the coast there is Torremelinos and Marbella to the west and Nerja to the east, all with beautiful beaches (and nightlife too.)
