Sueños is our dream home with a superb view over Lake Viñuela in the heart of beautiful Axarquia.
It is equipped as a home, with all cooking facilities and a dish-washer, and a utility room for storage and clothes washing. There is air conditioning in the lounge and bedrooms as well as ceiling fans if you prefer. Easy to use electrical grills, oven etc for outside use. The terrace has easy to use remote controlled electric blinds for shade, four sun loungers and storage for pool toys. There are gates to the pool and railings for children's safety.
For your car there is a well shaded carport and sliding electric gate, remotely controlled. You will need a car, as the local shopping area is a mile away and includes a return up a steep hill. The shopping there includes a baker, butcher, supermarket, Chinese emporium, hair and beauty salon, ironmongers, restaurants, bars and cafés.
Twenty minutes drive away is the large town of Velez-Malaga, El Ingenio (a super store complex), Lidl, and an industrial estate. Ten minutes further on is the nearest beach, at Torre del Mar.
Nerja, a very popular resort with Brits, and above it the white village of Frigiliana, are 40 minutes drive from Sueños.
Malaga is an hour’s drive, or you might prefer the bus ride from Torre del Mar, about €5 return, saving the expense and difficulty of parking. Malaga has a wonderful port area, shopping and historic centre, and good beaches and cultural features. Weekly markets are held at nearby Torre and Velez on Thursdays and at Caleta de Mar on Saturday morning.
Cycling and walking in this mountain area are to die for. The best cycling is in the mountains right from the front gate, and needs bikes with a wide range of gears. We have two bikes suitable for riding at the beach, on the cycle track at Torre and a rack to take them there on a car. The best walking is in the Parque Natural, to which you would have to drive, the nearest access being at Alcaucín, 7km away. You can, however access plenty of paths from our front gate.

Owner purchased this House in 2002
Why Owner chose Viñuela
We have always lived in houses with wonderful views so when looking to buy in Spain we wanted one of the best views available away from busy roads. We fell in love with this area when we first saw it even though there were no houses built here.
What makes this House unique
We love the lake view and the wonderful sunsets across the lake . A glass of wine whilst watching these sunsets and listening to the goat bells in the distance is a dream. Our home is easy to look after and feels extra spacious with it's cathedral ceiling. Our furniture also was bought for comfort. We have recently bought a flat in Somerset so are now able to share our home with others through Owner's Direct.

Spacious comfortable well equipped villa with amazing views, good location for coast & villages.
We have just returned from spending an amazing 2 weeks at Casa suenos. The house was very well equipped and spacious. The fans and aircon kept us nice and cool as did the blinds on the terrace. The pool was a good size and depth & was great for swimming, lazing around and for playing games. We never got bored of the amazing views over lake vinuela . The villa was well placed for visiting local Spanish villages and the coast. We even managed a trip to cordoba to!
Thank you Joyce and John for letting us enjoy your house.
Sounds like a great holiday was had by all Katie. I'm glad you managed to visit the lovely white villages in Andalucia as well as enjoying time in the pool. John and I also never tire of the lake view and the sounds of the goats and sheep in the distance on a warm summer night. You were all brave to venture as far as Cordoba in August. We love the Cathedral hiding inside the walls of the original Moorish Mosque.
Thank you for choosing Casa Sueños for your 2017 holiday. We'd love to have you stay another year.

Outstanding property in a gorgeous location
This is a wonderful property, immaculately kept and with every detail carefully considered to help anyone enjoy a fabulous holiday here. We loved the pool, the amazing views, the tranquillity with only the distant sound of goat bells. If you want the hurly burly fast pace of spain please don't go here but if you want peace with great beauty but with a small village a 5 minute drive away, a huge supermarket and other shops approx. 20 minutes away, then Casa Suenos is the place for you.
If you like your walking, there are some beautiful tracks you can use to walk to the lake although I would avoid doing this in the height of summer! This seems to be a great region for cycling and the property had lots of maps to help you find your way around if you need them.
We really hope to be able to stay here again in the future!
My husband and I are delighted that Alison and her family enjoyed their holiday in Casa Sueños. Although we didn't meet each other, we corresponded by email regarding any information she needed to help her holiday plans. Our neighbours who were there at the time loved listening to their daughter playing in the warm pool. We would welcome this lovely family to our home again in the future.

This is a perfect relaxed holiday home. Out of the crush of the city but within easy driving distance of beach, mountains and interesting places like the Alhambra. It is clean, comfortable and well-maintained.
The front of the house, facing the pool, has a magnificent view of distant mountains. HIghly recommended!
Thank you for your interesting review. This lady ventured to Granada to visit the Alhambra which is about one and a half hours drive away from Suenos. She also enjoyed the special churros and chocolate breakfast treat during her stay and tried Scottish dancing in a nearby restaurant.
Beautiful peaceful break, great views
Stayed at the beautiful Casa Suenos on two occasions with my family. It is lovely and picturesque, quiet and has the most beautiful sunsets over the lake. My husband and I are keen runners and loved exploring the rugged hills from the front door and then chilled and played in the pool with the kids most of the day! Short drive to local shops, 1/2 hr drive to main town where we did all our shopping (cheaper!!) and El Charcoal grill across the lake is one of the best restaurants for steak we've ever been to. Went to the waterpark in Torre which was a great day out with the kids. A great place to escape the hustle and bustle of home :-)
This young family were happy playing in the pool most days and didn't venture out a lot in August except in the early mornings for shopping trips and in the evenings for pizzas and steaks. They found the nearby water park expensive but one day they took their twin boys for a special treat. Their previous Spanish nanny lived close by so they were able to get together and speak Spanish . I'm pleased they had a well earned break at Casa Suenos and look forward to seeing them again in the future
A GEM WITH A VIEW
I have visited CASA SUEÑOS on several occasions and whether I've been with my family (small children included) or a grown up friend, the property suited my needs. It has all mod cons and is well equipped. The views are breathtaking and watching the sun set beyond the lake makes for a special evening experience. The pool is a bonus as are the lovely open fields in which you can roam. I'm already booked to return.
Thank you for such a lovely review. So pleased we're happy in our home when you stayed with your grandchildren and also when you booked with your friend. We also love the sunsets enjoyed with a glass of Rioja. Hope you enjoy your next visit as much .Thank you for your next reservation. Joyce and John
A great holiday getaway
My wife and I have spent 11 days in the villa and loved every minute of it. Most of the time there was spent either on the terrace looking at the great view, or by the pool. We've also enjoyed the walking trails near the house and the lake.
While staying at the villa, we visited great places nearby, like Torre del Mar, Alhama de Granada, Velez-Malaga and Periana, where we also found some nice restaurants.
We recommend this villa to anyone who would like to have a nice and quiet holiday - like we did!
