About the property

A luxury country villa to rent in Andalucia, Spain nr Riogordo and Colmenar

A large luxury holiday villa to rent in southern Spain. Our fabulous Spanish country villa in Andalucia in southern Spain is the perfect family holiday home. Set in over 4 acres of almond & olive trees, this large house is situated in stunning private surroundings just 10 minutes drive from the traditional white Spanish villages of Riogordo and Colmenar and only 35 minutes from Malaga airport. The house sleeps up to 14 in 6 large bedrooms - two doubles and two twin bedrooms upstairs and two double bedrooms with an extra single bed in each downstairs. The downstairs bedrooms are not connected to the upstairs by an internal staircase but are easily accessible via the pool area. The modern kitchen is fully fitted including a dishwasher. The main living area has air-conditioning for the summer & heating for the winter. Broadband internet access is included. The house has a full size pool - 8m x 4m - with plenty of space around it for sunbathing. In addition there is a separate large utility room/games room and a laundry.

Things to do: The villa is very well situated to take advantage of the many activities available in the local area. Whether your ideal holiday consists of lying about with a good book or testing the local golf courses then this is the ideal base.

For beach lovers, the villa is within easy reach of the coast - less than 30 minutes drive - with access to numerous beaches. Torre del Mar also has many other activities like the Aqua Velis waterpark at Torre del Mar - one of the largest in Andalucia. Also in Torre del Mar are other activities like Karting del Sol and Ozone bowling.

With the stunning mountain scenery and lots of trails for walking and photography, there is plenty to keep everyone busy.

Alhambra Palace - if you only visit one thing when you are in Andalucia then it has to be the Alhambra Palace in Granada. One of the wonders of the world. Book in advance and ideally well before your holiday.

The caves at Nerja are worth a visit, as is Nerja itself.

Just returned from a family hoilday the villa was plenty big enough as there was 14 of us lots of areas to chillout on your own if needed. The pool area was great we all spent most of our time there. Nice touch have pool inflatables to use and beach towels. The games room kept us all entertained excellent addition to the villa. The views were stunning total peace and relaxation. The villa had everything you could want and the welcome pack was a nice touch. The dirt track up to the villa was somthing eles apart from the drivers most of us tried to avoid it. Without a doubt you need a car to get about as nowhere is in walking diatance although we did walk to colmenar and took over an hour. The villa was more remote than we thought but still had a fantastic time. Colin the owner was a great help and lyn and jo were so helpful to us and such nice people.

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a good time. It really is a lovely spot isn't? Difficult to think it is only 1km from a main road because it is so quiet.. Well done for walking to Colmenar! That is certainly a good bit of exercise. We look forward to seeing you back again - and remember returning guests get a discount.

Quiet Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family (8 people) stayed at Piltraque for one week in August. The weather, not unexpectedly was very hot and the air con in the villa was very welcome. The description of the villa is very accurate with the added adventure of negotiating the track up to it. It was quite exciting the first time we drove up to the villa, but after a few trips in and out we got the hang of it and found it was best to go slow, in bottom gear and enjoy the view. The position of the villa is amazing, sort of hanging on the side of a mountain, surrounded by steep slopes covered in almond and olive trees. A farmer was harvesting the almonds while we were there and we vow never to question the price of almonds again. The villa is very large, with 2 large en suite bedrooms downstairs, which were very cool even on the hottest day. Upstairs, the master bedroom has air con, but the others were a bit warmer (mostly because my family err on the side of caution and refuse to have the windows open at night!)

I would not hesitate to recommend this property if you, like us, want a remote, comfortable and private accommodation. Don't think it would suit anyone who likes to shop easily! Stunning views.

Everything we wanted for a quiet family hiliday

  • 5 of 5

8 adults & 5 children(5years up to 8yrs)stayed for 7 days and really enjoyed ourselves. The house had every thing we needed & was very clean The kids spent most of the days in and around the pool. The drive up was fine as we were all used to off roading! & the surrounding villages had everything we wanted although we did a big shop in Eroski in Anteqera when we arrived. We spent one day on the beach near Malaga (reached in 40 mins) & hopefully will return next year

Wonderful Well Designed Villa,

  • 5 of 5

I have just spent four weeks at Piltraque and have found the villa, location and views to be fantastic. The villa is equipped to a very high standard. The design with the wrap around upper terrace ensures there is always a breeze, even in the heat of summer. The rooms are lovely and tastefully decorated. The pool was good and the outside eating area was used by us every day. The track up to Piltraque could be off putting, however we found it to be relatively easy, even with a lower bodied convertable car. We had five groups of friends and family staying with us at various times. It was an excellent place for a get together and all our guests thought the villa and surrounding area was an ideal location for a relaxed holiday. The nearby town of Riogordo is friendly and has a good number of bars and restaurants, as does Colmenar. Granada and Cordoba are within easy day trip distance and there are many interesting places to visit within an hours drive. I happily recommend this villa for families and friends, especially larger groups. There is enough room at Piltraque to have your teenagers at a distance for much of the time, always a plus point!
