Casa Lazy Days
A lovely semi-detached villa with private pool, set in the beautiful countryside 5 minutes from the village of Sayalonga, along a well-used track. The villa affords spectacular views of the surrounding mountains which seem to change with the different light, and coastal views from the front of the property. Accommodation is all on one level, with a 10 x 4m pool situated on a lower level. The pool has night lighting for those hot nights when a swim is called for. There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas. There are dozens of bars and restaurants in Sayalonga, Torre del Mar and, further inland, Competa and Corumbela. Right on the doorstep are plenty of walking routes, and 2 golf courses close by. For those who love to shop, there are lots of local markets, supermarkets and El Ingenio shopping mall is only a 15 minute drive. The owners live in an apartment below the villa and will give complete privacy but are on hand if anything is required. A car is essential for this property (please contact us for details regarding a car) As this is listed as a new unit this for 2017 you can see reviews for our separate unit from previous visitors reference Casa Lazy Days

About Judy Mottershead
My husband and myself divide our time between England and Spain, we love the relaxed way of life in Spain and their attitude towards families young or old. Since being here we have made many friends and have also adopted 2 dogs (Toby who is very shy with people he doesn't know and Poppy who is a mischievous youngster who loves people) we also have adopted 2 cats who decide if they want a stroke off you or not. You will see us round and about, cleaning the pool or watering the garden but giving you your privacy but if you want a chat that's ok, we're friendly northerners and like a good laugh. We have an fruit orchard and we may even be plying you with fruit dependant on the season we can only eat so much.
Judy Mottershead purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Judy Mottershead chose Sayalonga
We originally purchased a property in Torrox but wanted to buy a property for rental in the region, after looking around for many months we were shown a piece of land and immediately fell in love with the views and peacefulness of the area and all the time being 15 minutes drive from the coast, we decided to purchase the land and had Casa Lazy Days built. Each day you can wake up look at the mountains and it can look completely different in the varying light. We see the local goatman with his herd roaming around the hills,the local Spanish come to the campo to tend their land and in spring the area is covered with almond blossom and wild flowers an ideal time for walkers. Our friendly neighbours are of different nationalities and stop to say hello or have a quick chat.
What makes this Villa unique
Whilst being situated in the countryside you are only 5mins drive from Sayalonga a lovely whitewashed village where everyone is made welcome and 12 minutes drive from Algarrobo Costa and its beaches. Casa Lazy Days is home from home everything you could need is provided. We can also give you info on the area and restaurants and if required could be available to drive you to the coast if you all want to have a drink. If you arrive on a late flight and need extra shopping getting in that's no problem you can just email me a shopping list and pay when you get here. If leaving on a late flight you can leave your cases here and go out and enjoy your day and pick them up before you leave for the airport. If there are no guests arriving on your departure day you can leave at any time.

Fantastic holiday ,brilliant property ,outstanding views
We absolutely loved our twelve days spent at Lazy Days property and will definitely return. This was our first family holiday abroad in nine years and we were not disappointed. Pre booking our holiday, we had read other Lazydays reviews which were so positive and I can confirm this absolutely to be the case.
The property is a two storey villa, the owners live downstairs with the rented property being above (can be rented 6 persons or up to 10). Whilst the owners Judy and Frank live on the property ,we were given privacy however they were available should we need anything or advice. Judy and Frank are lovely , friendly and went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as it was.
The house has everything you need washing machine, dishwasher, TV, WiFi ,-every room was spotlessly clean . The pool was amazing a great size for us all to have lots of fun in . We spent a lot of our time relaxing here . Not forgetting the patio area, we barbequed there most evenings watching the sunset with amazing views of the mountains. The scenery is stunning .
This property is in the mountains so a car would be highly advisable. Judy and Frank offer hire of their car which we would highly recommend, we found this invaluable as they collected us to and from the airport, which saved time and not to mention hassle free for us !
Another positive for our family was meeting the owners gorgeous dogs Poppy and Toby and Babe the cat !
Thank you Judy and Frank for such a lovely stay and we hope to see you again next year X Joanna Mark and kids
Perfect in every way , description online exactly as it was except the views were so stunning you had to see them yourself
Judith was amazing and so helpful .
Villa had everything you would need , pool perfect , just can’t find a negative at all
Would encourage anyone to book this villa
Thanks Marion for the lovely review we do try to be honest with our description that way you are not disappointed, so glad you enjoyed your holiday, hope to see you all again sometime. Judy & Frank
Lovely clean airy well equipped villa.
What can we say. The villa sits high up on the hillside where it is private and catches the sun. It is a two storey property and the owners live downstairs. The owners are friendly, but not intrusive and you can enjoy a chat or not as you please. The pool area is private and solely for the guests use. The property is modern and airy with three good sized bedrooms. The kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook and a washing machine and dryer. Wifi works well and all in all this is a property you won't be disappointed with. There are two ways to get to the villa from the main road (both via relatively long winding tracks), but hey, if you want peace and quiet, solitude a bit off the beaten track, then this is a minor price to pay and you have to remember you are in Spain and tracks are a normal part of life.
Poppy and Toby are the owners two dogs who will welcome you lovingly and befriend your children. They visited us regularly, but in part I think that was due to the slices of ham we gave them. A great holiday was had by all and we would certainly rebook Judy and Franks villa.
Wow, thank you for such a brilliant review it was a pleasure meeting you all and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is good to hear everyone's comments to see if there are things that we could improve on, but the track to the property is not one of these and as you say tracks are part of Spain.
It would be a pleasure to see you all again.
Frank & Judy and of course the animals.
Beautiful villa, stunning views
A beautiful villa with amazing views. Stayed here first week of school holidays in October. Lovely pool area, which my daughter enjoyed. The whole package was excellent from being picked up at the airport, welcome pack (plus you can add extras if you require which you can pay for when you arrive) and hiring Frank and Judys car, this all added to a very stress free booking and holiday. Unfortunately we didn't meet Judy as she was in the U.K. On our visit but Frank was extremely helpful, if you needed anything it was no problem. There is a great restaurant in the village of Sayalonga called Casa Mari great food and great prices. The village is lovely. Would definitely recommend this villa whether you are a couple or a family it has everything you would want.
Thank you Tessa for your fantastic review. We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Casa Lazy Days and had a stress free holiday from the time when Frank met you at Malaga airport to the time he dropped you back there and that your holiday lived up to your expectations. I am sorry that I did not meet you during your stay but hope to meet you on a future visit.

Beautiful villa with amazing views and lovely pool
This is a beautiful villa with stunning views. Lovely pool area great for the family. The whole package at Casa Lazy Days is great, Frank picked us up at the airport, welcome pack of essentials on your arrival which you can add to if required you would just pay the extra on arrival, the hire of Frank and Judys car for the week all contributed to a very stress free booking and holiday. Unfortunately we did meet Judy as she was in the UK on our visit but Frank was extremely helpful if you needed anything it was no problem. Sayalonga is a lovely traditional Spanish village with 3 restaurants of which we would throughly recommend Casa Mari great food and really good prices in a lovely setting. Overall you would not be disappointed with your stay in this villa, it is lovely.
Great villa great people great area to visit
My family and I have just spent 9 nights at the villa and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the villa had everything we needed & is in a beautiful location close to lots of villages that have amazing restaurants and views. The owners Frank and Judy are very helpful and lovely people willing to do all they can to make your holiday a good 1. We would visit again 100%
Thank you for your lovely review, it was a pleasure to have you stay at Casa Lazy Days and we are glad that you enjoyed your holiday in the area. It was nice having chats with you and seeing the twins running around and enjoying time by the pool. We would love to see you again in the future.

The local village of Sayalonga is 5 mins drive away and has an old world charm with it winding streets and on the scenic route of sun and wine, we have a local bodega which can be visited (they have supplied wines to Gordon Ramsays restaurants). The village has all amenities, supermarkets, bars/restaurants, post office, chemist and bank. 15 minutes away is the larger village of Competa with more bars/restaurants etc. The nearby Sierra Alimijara national park and the Tejeda mountains are a paradise for nature lovers, walking, cycling and touring can be enjoyed in the unspoilt natural environment take advantage of the lower rental prices in the off peak season to enjoy these activities before the weather gets to hot. Also 15 minutes away is the water park at Torre del Mar open between July-Sept. For those who would like to visit Malaga leave your car at Torre del Mar and catch the local bus approx 7 euros return well worth the visit walk around the old port, enjoy the architecture and the old cathedral and people watch whilst sitting in one of the many tapas bars. You can take a scenic drive up to the world heritage site of the Alhambra at Granada, prices are reasonable, tickets must be booked ahead and can be done online. All in all the area around our villa is ideal for touring the real Spain, or of course you can just relax with your friends. We are situated in Inland Spain but the roads to Sayalonga are good tarmaced roads but winding and our villa is along a well used track please don't expect it to be like local roads in Britain.
