All of the rooms provide a full bath with accessories such as a magnifying mirror and hair dryer. They also offer individualized air conditioning and heating and a terrace or balcony with spectacular views.

Nuevespigas has nine double bedrooms wich are rented in relation with the number of people renting the Villa, that is, a bedroom per 2 persons.

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 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, Bellas Artes & Russian Museums.

Besides visiting the area of Sierra de las Nieves from Nuevespigas, day trips may be made to cities such as Ronda (50 km.), Granada (125 km.), Marbella (55 km.) Antequera ( 65 km.), El Chorro gorge, Seville (200 km.), and nearby Gibraltar and Cordoba (180 km.). Also El Caminito del Rey and the Dolmenes are close to the Villa.

On summer time possible/ beautiful beaches: Malaga area 45km / 40 mins drive as well as in Marbella, Puerto Banus 52km /45 mins drive and in Torremolinos, Mijas, Estepona and Fuengirola; like 54km /45 mins drive. In Casarabonela you find shops, fresh vegetables, meat, fish, bread, as well as a couple of banks and plenty of places to eat 'tapas'.

Access: Nuevespigas is easily reached from Malaga & its Airport via the A-357 direction Cartama. 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.

Cooking Courses & others: Nuevespigas was the Hotel/ Country Villa in which celebratory chef ' Rick Stein' recently stayed and filmed his new TV series for the BBC and described it as his secret valley.

Wonderful Property; Great View of Casarabonela

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with friends for two weeks. Property is in excellent condition; owner helpful, easy to deal with and responsive to our every need prior to and during our stay. Great views of the small town; excellent location outside the hustle and bustle of larger urban centers; yet, close enough to enjoy Malaga. Great propert and excellent value!

Paradise house!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning former hotel perched on an Andalusian hilltop. Mindblowing views on all sides. The decor tasteful, the rooms all gorgeous (en suite and with views), an incredible kitchen and veranda to eat breakfast looking at the jaw dropping landscape. Lovely pool area, and table tennis a nice addition. Frank was super communicative and very kind. We went with the whole extended family for a week and couldn't have asked for anything more. Paradise!

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
