La Herradura Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-12)
Villa Estrellas Bailando is the perfect choice if you are looking to relax in a private, luxurious house at an affordable price. The villa is located in La Herradura on the bluff known as Punta de La Mona and has endless views of the sea, the mountain peaks, and the village.
La Herradura is located on the Costa Tropical, in the Province of Granada, Andalucia. The closest airports are in Malaga (50 minutes) and Granada (70 minutes).
The villa is made up of a main house that is connected directly to an apartment. When renting this villa you have the option of renting just the main house or renting both the main house and the apartment (for a small additional price). The main house sleeps 5-6 people and the apartment can sleep an additional 6 people. The great thing about this property is it can be enjoyed quietly by a couple or a group as small as 4 just as well as a larger group.
The décor of the villa is very unique. Each room has a number of windows allowing it to have a sea or mountain view. The villa also offers an exclusive layout that offers each guest their privacy, especially during “siesta time”, but also has a big patio for everyone to be together.
The main house has a large, open kitchen with an island where people can congregate as well as a round table to eat. Connected to the kitchen is a living room that is surrounded by windows to give it an open feel.
Outside, guests can enjoy the infinity pool, two patios with a sitting and dining areas area with a grill, and numerous terraces that are perfect to watch the astounding sunsets.
The villa is only a 10-minute walk (3 minute drive) into town. La Herradura has all the fundamental shops and services one might need during their stay here.
The village is also made up of local bars with terraces, restaurants (which include beach front chiringuitos), coffee shops by day/ice cream parlors by night, small specialty shops, playground for children, and even offers a fun nightlife on the west end of the village.
There are also many opportunities to enjoy the mile long beach and Mediterranean Sea. These activities include sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, learning to scuba dive, renting canoes, kayaks, jet skis, sailboats, pedal boats, and even catamarans.
Other activities include hiking, horseback riding, hang gliding, tennis, jogging, pick-up soccer and basketball. And if you’re looking to improve your Spanish speaking skills there are a few language schools as well.
The nearby charming towns of Almunecar (4 miles) and Nerja (7 miles) are perfect for short outings as they are filled with beaches, small tourist shops, restaurants, larger supermarkets, and some nightlife. The historic city of Granada is only a 45-minute drive.
It is filled with shops, restaurants, museums, cathedrals, and the famous Alhambra Palace. The Sierra Nevada Mountains are less than a 2-hour drive for skiing in the winter months.
There are also 3 golf courses (Baviera, Los Mariscos, and Anorretta) within driving distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"A taste of paradise with spectacular views"
"We had our family reunion at the beautiful Villa Estrellas Bailando in July 2009. It was the perfect location to meet family members who flew in from United States, Canada and Iran. The villa was situated on top of a cliff with breath taking views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea where by day we would see sailboats and in the evening shooting stars. The villa was large and luxurious which easily supported our party of 12. For 10 days we immersed ourselves in enjoying our family, site-seeing (Rock of Gibraltar, Granada, castles, beaches, Picasso museum, Nerja, Marbella) and eating great food. However, my favorite activity was to sit outside under the veranda or by the infinity pool and enjoy the beauty of the country and its peacefulness. This was an amazing villa and great vacation. We will recommend Villa Estrellas Bailando to all our friends and family.
