Lovely and comfortable residence

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house with all amenities. With a beautiful view and tranquility. A cup of coffee overlooking the valley is delicious. Wonderful hiking in the area. Picking avocados from the trees. A nice swimming pool, very nice host. At a pleasant distance from Malaga and nice clubs on the beach. Definitely a place to return.

If you look for a lovely spot in the beautiful surroundings of Andalusie go to Encantada!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull time in Encantada. A beautiful house surrounded with different terasses where you can enjoy nature. The house offers you all the comfort you need and much more. It's a nice stroll to the village Benamargossa. The sea is only a 15 minute drive, here you find lots of restaurants with the best seafood. We will certainly go back to Encantada!

Lovely house on a hill with an amazing view

  • 4 of 5

This house is a great starting point for exploring the broader Malaga region. With great daytrips to e.g. Pedrogalejo, Malaga City, Nerja and many small authentic white villages. With your own petanque course, a great competition is guaranteed. Great views are all inclusive as from the terrace you can see the valley that consist of mango plantations (please try the 'mango of the house' as we were offered by Ramon and Esther (great hosts!). The swimming pool gives you the opportunity for a fresh relaxation (also with a view). We've had a great time and would definetely recommend the house for a short or a long stay! Henk and Alexa

Oase van rust en ruimte!

  • 5 of 5

Perfecte tijd gehad in Encantada. Het huis ligt heel mooi op een berg met een fantastisch uitzicht, de weg er naartoe is stijl, maar goed te doen. Warm welkom van Ramon en Esther, lekker flesje wijn en de keuken is volledig ingericht met kruiden en olie en azijn. Op de badkamer staat heerlijke douchegel, bodycreme en ook aan wasmiddel is gedacht. In iedere kamer staan verse bloemen en het is overal schoon. Er zijn verschillende terrassen, zodat je rust, zon of juist schaduw op kunt zoeken. Het zwembad is heerlijk! Ramon en Esther kennen de omgeving goed en geven graag allerlei tips. De locatie is centraal, vanuit hier kun je allerlei uitstapjes maken. Ik ga hier zeker terugkomen!
