Why ALAN YOUNG chose Viñuela

We bought our villa in 2003 and enjoy the visits there several times each year. This property was our dream, the outstanding location, and stunning, breathtaking views of Lake Vinuela with magnificent mountain scenery, peaceful and tranquility yet within close reach to bars, shops, and restaurants. Numerous whitewashed villages to visit are just a short drive away and only 20 minutes drive to nearest beach resort of Torre del Mar

What makes this villa unique

Our spacious villa is well equipped with all you will need, a home from home feeling, plus large private pool and sunny terracing, in fact, the sun is on our pool area all day.

Secure gated driveway, separate indoor dining area, air/con throughout and free wifi are just a few of the bonuses you'll enjoy at our villa. An ideal location for couples and families, Casa Vista al Lago is the perfect choice

Amazing spacious property

  • 4 of 5

The property has amazing views over the nearby hills and (depleted) lake.

It is spacious with plenty of relaxing space for all members of our family. It was a pleasure to sit around the pool of an afternoon. Some of us did brave the pool which was bracing!

The kitchen was well appointed and a pleasure to cook in.

The bedroom/bathroom spaces were clean and well kept.

We enjoyed sitting out on the little roof terrace at sunset.

The property is well stared for trips to the beach or to inland villages for lunch. We especially enjoyed a trip to the stunning vineyard at Bodegas Bentomiz at Sayalonga.

Lovely and relaxing villa.

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely place! We enjoyed our stay here and it was just what we were looking for.

The villa is lovely and the pool suited for children as well as adults.

It is approximately 45 mins from The airport in Malaga and has all the necessary shopping 5 mins drive away.

The area is lovely and depending on the time of year you'll see the most amazing sunsets.

Thanks to Alan and his team for a lovely stay.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean, well equipped villa. Had a very comfortable 2 week stay. Outside space is perfect.... The pool area has the sun all day (although there are always shady spots if required). The location was ideal for us, peaceful but with good amenities close by. The views are incredible.... We enjoyed some fantastic evenings admiring them on the balcony, watching the sun set behind the mountains and listening out for the bells of the goats coming home!

Lovely places to visit in the area....we really enjoyed Comares, Alhama de Grenada, kayaking on the lake, caves of Nerja and Frigiliana. The village of Vinuela is really pretty and we liked the Pizzaria there. Great fish from the restaurants on the coast too.

The owner is really helpful and quick to respond to any messages and we felt the villa was really good value. Highly recommend, we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review of our villa and local area. Indeed the local villages of Comares, La Vinuela and Frigiliana amongst many others are beautiful and just a short drive away. When we visit our villa we often sit on the balcony at night and admire the stunning views over the lake with Comares all lit up in the hills, we call it "Tiara Mountain" Pleased you enjoyed your holiday and would love to welcome you back again
