They also offer individualized air conditioning and heating and a terrace or balcony with spectacular views.

Surrounding: On those days when one wishes to leave this peace, possible visits to close by cities and towns such as the coastal Málaga, capital of the province and home to the new Picasso museum are not far off. Also in Malaga and now again open to visitors and completing the cultural, historical offering of the city are the Arab fortress La Alcazaba, the Roman amphitheater and its Cathedral as well as the new leisure port and the Pompidou & Russian Museums.

After about twenty minutes on this road you will find a sign on your right indicating Casarabonela, Alozaina on the A - 354. Turn left onto this road and after 10 to 15 minutes turn right towards Casarabonela, before actually going into the village (A - 7275) and after the Peugeot Garage & Eroski Supermarket you will find on your right a sign toward Nuevespigas. They will lead you to a dirt road (in good condition) and to two steep climbs which can be easily salvaged in first gear and stepping on the gas. Whether you are coming from the Malaga Airport or Marbella via the N-340 the prior roads are the same to reach Nuevespigas. From Sevilla or Granada the approach should be made via the A-92 first and later the A-382 to Campillos which connects with the A-357 direction Malaga and again reaching the A-354 into Casarabonela.

Guestbook comments from the owner

GUESTBOOK....From the moment we set foot in the front door, the welcome awaiting you made you feel you were visiting friends rather than staying in a hotel. Nothing is too much trouble and you make your guest feel very relaxed. We enjoyed all the different dishes you served. A really lovely hotel and one we will return to.

A. & B. T.Twickenham Midd.. 20.9.04

Wonderful villa for family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is wonderful! We had a group of 18 people - 10 adults, 6 children and 2 babies - with plenty of room to move about and not get on top of one another. The en-suite bathrooms also made a huge difference with so many people in the group. The large dining room provided ample space for the kids to eat dinner whilst the adults enjoyed eating late-night dinners on the terrace with a fantastic view overlooking Casarabonela and the valley below. The professional kitchen also made cooking a real enjoyment. An issue with the dishwasher when we first arrived (it had broken down) was fixed as quickly as possible by the very helpful and hospitable owners and our full deposit was returned despite a couple of minor breakages (which, whilst unavoidable and due to wear-and-tear, may well have been charged by other owners). Highly recommend this property to anyone looking for somewhere that is family-friendly, somewhere to unwind and somewhere with beautiful views.

Excellent house but access difficult

  • 3 of 5

The house itself cannot be faulted - clean, spacious and well equipped. It is a former hotel now rented out as a villa (La Era). The views across the mountains and Casarabonela are amazing. However, the road leading up to the property is part dirt track, and in sections so steep that our hire cars struggled. It means that it is neither possible to walk into the village (in theory the distance can be covered on foot but I wouldn't have wanted to meet a car as a pedestrian), nor would we have liked to have driven up to the property in the dark. The house is in a beautiful area, but there are no attractions nearby - everything is at least an hours' drive on small windy roads. The pool is nice, but a little small for the number of occupants the house can take.

Owner's Response: Very pleased our guests found the villa well appointed and visitor ready. The amazing views and independence at Nuevespigas can only be found in the still undisturbed Andalusian countryside. Countryside protected down to its mountain roads, meaning they must remain as they were since time immemorial being Casarabonela part of a European natural biosphere reserve. Nuevespigas is the perfect destination for relaxing, enjoying each other's company and occasionally visiting other villages or cities found in the adjacent countryside. Distance and time for travel there and back are normal considering the villa's location. The villa's pool area offers more than just the pool with plenty of space to play and relax.

Casarabonela Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family [6 adults and 6 children] have just returned from a wonderful 2 week holiday [Aug 2016] staying at this superb villa. It is situated in the mountains near the picturesque village of Casarabonela. The views from all the bedrooms are spectacular and the interior of the villa is most tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. Each bedroom has its own en suite bathroom and some have balconies over looking the beautiful countryside. The kitchen is equipped to the highest standard as the villa used to be used as a hotel. I would strongly recommend this venue to anyone wanting to have a peaceful holiday in Southern Spain with Malaga and Marbella only about 45 minutes drive away. Martin McNeill

"A Gem in the Mountains of Malaga"

  • 5 of 5

We rented this oasis in the mountains of Malaga, this past June. The amenities were top notch and the villa was so comfortable to stay at. This property use to be a hotel, so all the rooms have the same amenities (i.e. en suite bathroom, plenty of closet space w/hangers, safes in every room, fans, air conditioning, etc.). The property has an amazing view of Casarabonela township, along with a view of other villages. There is plenty of parking space, a nice pool that can cool you down on a hot summer day, a charming courtyard on side of the house and a beautiful covered patio on the other. Most of the rooms have private balconies, that you can sit out on. There is a fantastic gourmet kitchen, laundry room, huge dining room, beautiful living room, foyer, etc. etc. etc. The owner, Frank and his lovely wife, Isabelle, were a god-sent, as they were so accommodating and helpful before and during our stay. The process to book this villa was easy and convenient. Frank can arrange catering and a wonderful band for your stay, if you so choose. I would recommend a few things:

1. Try to get there during daylight, because the roads are not well signed and it's easy to miss the markers.

2. Be okay with driving through hilly roads, some of which is unpaved.

3. Plan to have groceries for your first night there, as the village grocery store, closes early and there really isn't a 2nd option.

The house has free Wi-Fi that is at a fairly good speed. Bring your cameras, because you will want to take a 1000 pictures from the house, the village and the walking trail on the property of the house.

Overall, we had a very memorable trip. We were able to relax and disengage from the hustle and bustle of our every day lives and Frank and Isabelle catered to our needs, whenever we called on them. Andy, their son, was also quite helpful and made all the pre-reservation activities smooth. We are grateful to the Nuevespigas family.

A most enchanting week at this lovely villa!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, amazing villa that is both updated and classic, situated on the highest hill in the Casarabonela area. It is surrounded by the most beautiful grounds, both natural and cultivated, a lovely pool and private walking paths, and with an absolutely perfect view of the lovely white hill town Casarabonela! We spent most of our time on the patio watching the light change as the days rolled on. More than simply clean and hospitable, the villa is elegant, spacious, and private. Our hosts were as lovely as the villa, both attentive to our needs and trusting us to ourselves for the week. Long after the trip, our group could not stop talking about how amazing, sweet, and restorative our week there had been. We unanimously give this villa and it's owners the highest recommendation, without a hint of reservation! If only we could return there now for another enchanting week, or month, or more!

A taste of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

As excited as I was about staying at Nuevespigas from the pictures and description on the website, I was unprepared for how extraordinarily beautiful and enjoyable it would be. The entire house is exquisitely and tastefully furnished and decorated. The livingroom is especially beautiful, and yet we spent very little time there because the patio with it's magnificent view became our permanent spot for dining, reading, conversing. Some of our group of 11 were skeptical when I proposed Nuesvespigas as the place to stay during our first week in Andalusia; they thought it was too remote and there would be little to do and few places to dine out; by the end of the week no one wanted to leave. Frank and Isabel could not have been more helpful and accommodating. They even helped provide special baking equipment my friend needed to bake a cake for my surprise birthday party. And they opened the pool two weeks early so that we were able to use it. The kitchen is amazingly well furnished with cookware, utensils, and dishes. Casarabonela is a treasure of a town with lovely winding streets to explore (best on foot--easy to get trapped on one way narrow streets if you take a wrong turn). La Parada, recommended by Isabel, provided some of the best dining experiences of our entire vacation--not only because of the great food, but the experience of interacting with the friendly and exuberant owner and his wife. I'm recommending this property to every friend I talk to. Oh....yes, the drive up to Nuevespigas does take some getting used to, but sooooo very worth the effort.
