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.

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 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.

What a fabulous place to holiday

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 14 adults and teenagers who all thoroughly enjoyed staying here in August 2015. The house is excellent in every way, set in a beautiful location of undulating hills above the lovely white village of Casarabonela.

Frank met us on arrival and explained all we needed to know. He had very kindly bought a few requested items to keep us going for the first full day (Sunday) when the shops are closed, which we reimbursed him for on arrival.

He also came out very promptly on the Sunday morning at our request to help sort the internet - wish we'd spotted where the router was so we could have saved him a journey!

The house is very well presented, clean and tidy with a huge amount of space everywhere - we didn't use every room as we spent most of the time outside, but we tried very hard!

The pool isn't huge, but that didn't matter and we managed plenty of ball games with most of us in together. Our table tennis tournament didn't get finished so we may have to come back next year to see who the winner will be!

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

As a family and party of 13 we wanted a large, peaceful and quality villa to enjoy a weeks holiday with hopefully great views.....the villa had the lot and more.

Frank was always available to contact also which with 6 young children in the party should anything have happened I am sure would have been no problem.

We will be returning, highly recommend.

Blissful Villa with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

I found this place on-line whilst cold and miserable in January looking to book something that would brighten up my summer. This place did not disappoint. Nestled on it's own hill top with no one else around, almost every window provided epic views of the surrounding countryside. The swimming pool is clean and a welcome relief when it get's really hot, the kitchen is well equipped to feed as many people as it holds. As well as a swimming pool, table tennis table, and stargazing rocky outcrop you would always find a new place from which to watch the sunset. Frank was great and as well as a thorough tour, a detailed instruction manual was left. We were there for a week and managed a trip to both Ronda and Grenada, both of which are easily accessible. In short, I'll definitely be booking this place again, and I would recommend others to as well.
