Lovely well equipped Villa in a fantastic position, providing stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

Booked the Villa for a 2 week stay for our family of 4. The Villa is hard to fault, extremely well equipped and in a delightful position. My daughters loved the large pool and I was impressed with the Weber gas BBQ. The walk to the beach took just over 10 minutes, with the walk back ending with a short steep uphill section. The beach front market and bakery are highly recommended as is a trip to Granada and the Alhambra.

Absolutely stunning views, great situation

  • 5 of 5

This was a truly fabulous villa, there were 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 lads (22 and 18) and it was plenty big enough for us all. The villa is situated between Malaga and Granada, about 1 hr from Malaga airport, and has the most stunning views of both the sea and countryside. It is well positioned for trips to Granada, Marbella and a longer trip to Ronda (which is stunning).

The villa itself is very clean and wel maintained, the owner of the property is always available on email to ask questions before you go, and then there is the Property Manager, Andy, whom you can contact while you are there, should you need to.

The Garden is beautifully looked after by a local old chap, and there is both a downstairs and an upstairs terrace with plenty of sunloungers and cushions. The pool is lovely and we spent many a happy hour in there.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a peaceful and attractive area to stay, but which is near to lots of activities and attractions.

just a perfect hideaway, cannot fault the villa, sorry we moved down the coast on our second week.

  • 5 of 5

my wife and I love the Costa Tropical. No kiss me quick hats in sight, just refined and laid back. This villa could only be improved by a heated pool, we only like to visit in March and October when its not too hot. If you visit you will love the views and the garden. Give it a try. Cannot recomend any places to eat, having been visiting Spain since 1969 i can count on one hand the times we have really enjoyed the food.

Fabulous villa in peaceful and scenic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great short break here in May. The villa is in a very peaceful spot in the hills above La Herradura. The views of the surrounding countryside are fantastic. The villa itself is very comfortable and well equipped - there's nice big terrace off the upstairs living room which is ideal for evening drinks. Easy access to La Herradura and other towns and beaches along the coast and very easy from the airport.

A haven of peace and calm with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

We (family of three) have visited San Gonzalos several times over the years and will always return. The villa is in excellent condition throughout. It is traditionally and sympathetically furnished. Although the kitchen is small it is adequate for our needs and the dining area is plenty big enough. Wifi is available for a small charge.

What keeps us coming back is the truly breathtaking views from different aspects of the villa - both sea and countryside. You are not overlooked and feel completely at rest.

The swimming pool is a good size (deep enough for an adult to jump in and to stand up in the shallow end). The garden and plants are well-kept by a local, friendly gardener.

We do not bother to hire a car as we walk from the nearest bus stop at the bottom of the hill (the bus is direct from Malaga around 6 times a day *(exc sundays) and is very reasonable). However, the hill is steep and may not be an option for the less fit. It takes us around 20 minutes to walk from the village but it is all up hill. That said you can stop at the La Tartana hotel on the ascent and quench your thirst!

Delighful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for 1 week in April. We were delighted, it exceeded our expectations, and we had beautiful weather. The villa was spacious, comfortable and very well equipped, and had a feel of staying in someone's home. The garden was lovely, lots of room and plenty of garden furniture and a clean pool. Beautiful patio where we ate all our meals, on very comfy chairs, and an excellent gas BBQ. La Herradura is a charming town, we found everyone very friendly and used the excellent little daily market, and bakery. We had a very nice meal at Hotel La Tartana, a 5min walk away. The villa was so quiet and peaceful and the owner was extremely kind in allowing us a late checkout to accommodate our flight.
