Alcaucín Villa Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 5 bedroom/bathroom Luxury Villa with Large Pool and Gardens

Welcome to Casa El Obispo. This luxurious, fully air conditioned/ heated villa is well equipped with everything that you will need for an unforgettable vacation. The villa is set in a tranquil location very close to the National Park in Alcaucin and offers extensive gardens (over an acre) with plenty of space to relax and unwind. It has a superb large heated pool (11m x 5m) which incorporates large entry steps on which children can play and paddle. The adjoining terrace offers high quality sun-loungers, seating and three tropical sunshades. The villa comprises of 5 large bedrooms (sleeps 12) with adjoining en-suites. The large fully fitted kitchen provides you every modern convenience including an American fridge-freezer and wine-cooler. The breakfast area has seating for 8 and includes a large flat screened TV with satellite channels offering a full package including sports and movies. WIFI is also provided at the villa - just bring your laptop or tablet.

There is a spacious lounge offering extensive seating for 10+ - additional large wide screen TV with freeview and a DVD player. This room provides floor to ceiling windows offering direct access to the outside terrace and affords views across the gardens and pool area. There is also another dining area which provides a more formal setting for dinner. An IPOD docking station is also situated in the lounge.

The extensive covered terrace (14m x 4m) provides guests with an idyllic location to dine 'Al Fresco' and offers superb views of the surrounding hillside and valleys. There is an oversized typically Spanish dining table with seating for 8. To complete the picture there is a large built BBQ adjacent to the terrace.

For the more sporty guests, we have included a top of the range table tennis for use during their vacation.

Please note that there is also a separate downstairs WC and separate utility room.

The villa is suitable for all year round rentals and is particularly good for walkers and hikers in the cooler months as the National Park is approximately 5 minutes drive from the villa.

Throughout the winter months enjoy the heated luxury jacuzzi/hot tub fitted with massage jets and led lighting, combined with the heated pool, great entertainment for the whole family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a little note to say 'Thank You' for letting us hire your beautiful villa. We have had a lovely ten days, even with five month old twins! We have thoroughly enjoyed all the immaculate facilities here and can see all the time and effort that you have put into this property to make a 'home from home'. We have all enjoyed wonderful days in the pool/slide, and all the help and advice you have personally provided. We hope to make a return visit one day - once again, many thanks.

Just Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a beautiful Villa. It does not feel like a holiday rental, it feels like a well loved beautiful home. It was spotless! I have never felt so at home instantly in a Villa in all the 10 years we have been renting Villas. It is so spacious and every facility is provided including heated pool with a great slide, lovely Jacuzzi, Table Tennis, Swing-Ball, etc etc. There is a very informative folder which is full of lots of great information about all the local areas/restaurants/attractions. It was very helpful. Ray was great, always at the end of the phone if needed but never intrusive. I cannot fault this Villa at all and I would highly recommend it! If you are thinking of booking, don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed!

Excellent! Will return.

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 6 had an outstanding stay in Alcaucin. The property owner was delightful and helpful. Ray provided additional local information and went out of his way to help us book events. The house was furnished to a high standard with entertaining activities for all ages, including children. The highlight of our stay was sitting out on the veranda eating dinner (grill included), swimming, and having a glass of wine in the hot tub. As discerning American travelers, we have stayed at many vacation rentals in the past, but this house is by far the best.
