About the property

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. The breakfast area has seating for 8 and includes a large flat screened TV with satellite channels. 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 most UK channels. 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.

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 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.

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.

Nice villa

  • 3 of 5

Nice villa, shame about problems with pool (unable to use first day due to chemicals. 3rd day experience leak and unable to use slide as water levels dropped too low) and hot tub experienced problems with filtration (scum on water) and not all jets working.

Otherwise would go again

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend the villa enough, we were a group of 10 (6 adults, 4 children) and the villa was perfect for all of our needs. The children absolutely loved the pool and slide and the villa itself was so spacious and well laid out so that it didn't feel like everyone was on top on one another- the air con was a god send too!!

Dennis who looked after the property was fantastic- nothing was ever too much for him and he was always on the end of the phone should we have a question.

Location was great as the villa itself is pretty isolated but near enough to the local beaches (approx 20 min drive) or in less then 5 mins you will be in the picturesque village of Alacucin which I would highly recommend a visit to to get a taste of real Spanish life. There are local supermarkets and restaurants nearby if you don't fancy cooking but the villa is so well equipped if you do and the BBQ was a fantastic size too.

Booking was very simply and easy with Karen and again all of the information provided beforehand was great to help plan our trip further.

We cannot wait to go back!!

fantastic well equipped villa!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa enjoyed by all the family.

The villa is well equipped and an ideal size both inside and out for a large group.

The outdoor space was enjoyed by all from the pool to the BBQ area whilst offering plenty of outdoor seating and lounging.

We would like to thank Denis for his help throughout our stay. He was on hand to offer information on the local area and always available if we had any issues at the villa.

We would highly recommend this villa after experiencing a fab week here!

Thank you to Karen for making booking this villa so easy, the information provided prior to our holiday was of great help!

A beautiful villa in a wonderful mountain location

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant week with the family in this secluded villa which is a close enough drive to bars and restaurants in Alcaucin and Vinuela. Kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Many thanks to Dennis for his welcome and all of his help during our stay. Would definitely recommend and book again!!!

The Villa was stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week here and would highly recommend it. The villa was gorgeous and very clean. The pool was great too, the slide was a big hit with my 6 year old daughter - she spent most of the week in the pool! The views from the villa are very good and if you drive to the local village you can continue onto the National Park where there are fantastic walks - we had a great time there. There is a big supermarket only 20 mins away which is a bonus. All in we had a great week and will definitely return!
