What makes this Villa unique
As this is our home in the winter months we wanted visitors to feel that this was also their 'home from home', a place to truly relax and get rid of the stresses and strains of modern life. However for those who just can't live without it there is also access to internet, UK satellite TV and a selection of DVD films to watch. The villa and the pool provide such a fantastic setting that even with all the other attractions in the region it is hard to drag yourself away! Every care has been taken to provide a wonderful place for you to stay and guests will always receive a warm welcome when they arrive. Ela, meets and greets all guests on our behalf and always ensures that new visitors have everything they need. Christine and Bill Walton

Private and peaceful with a fantastic pool
Visiting in early October, we were spoilt by two weeks of perfect weather. The villa is very well equipped, comfortable if you're inside, but really designed for outdoor living with all of the places to sit, either in or out of the sun. The inside kitchen is small but adequate, but we used it very little, preferring the space and atmosphere of the outside living area.
The pool is large and unusually deep even in the 'shallow end', however it can be secured if visiting with children.
The situation is wonderful, completely private and undisturbed, not overlooked by other properties and with only a handful of cars passing each day. Although on the side of a valley the aspect gives many hours of sunshine even in the month we were there.
Frigiliana retains much character and has plenty of places to eat, and the motorway is within easy reach for getting further afield.
The only thing to be aware of is that the last 2-3 km are along a made-up but narrow winding and steep track, thankfully it is quiet so we only had a couple of times we had to back-up, but it does need a confident driver. Otherwise it would have been 5 stars all round.
Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.
Really nice and recommended!
Access to the property is along a very quiet single track road, which is no problem to navigate. A car is a necessity.
The property has everything we needed - pool, air con, sun beds, choice of outside dining locations, BBQ and a huge garden from which you can pick your own lemons, mangoes, grapes, kumquats and avocado.
Owner sent all the required information before the trip and no problem meeting the local contact who showed us to the property and we could contact via WhatsApp if we needed to (but we didn't!).
The air con in the main bedroom is amazing. The air con in the living room is good enough to keep the second bedroom cool - maybe a fan in the second bedroom would be better still.
We travelled as a family of 4 with kids aged 5 and 8 and we all had an amazing time here and would recommend and book again.
The villa is in a fantastic location, close to the wonderful town of Frigiliana and close to Nerja and the beach. It is situated up in the hills, nestled in olive groves. The inside of the villa is neat and tidy, with a twin bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, and a double bedroom and second bathroom upstairs. There's a small kitchen and a comfy living area with TV/fire/sofas etc. Surrounding this on two sides is a glazed living area with dining table, sofas etc, offering a great extended space. However - the best part of the villa is definitely the outside space, which is outstanding. There's a fantastic large outside kitchen with bar / stools, as well as various other seating areas offering shade or sun. The garden is extensive (and beautiful) with a boules area and covered car port. The pool is lovely (also fairly deep) and there's a utility area underneath the pool with washing machine/storage space and another loo. The views are amazing and it is simply a very relaxing place to stay.
Huge thanks to Chris and Billy!
Wonderful villa, beautiful location. Perfect..
Very well appointed villa, nothing else you could wish for. Beautiful location with privacy and natural habitat yet walkable to Frigiliana. It's a nice walk down country lanes, steep in parts, but with good footwear we walked it there and back all but one of our 14 night's. Its not lit so a torch is necessary (provided at the villa). Ela and Martin are meticulous in preparing the villa and it is spotless on arrival. The pool is crystal clear and lovely for a midnight swim after walking back from the village. We saw the chameleon several times this visit together with fox, owls and the doves nesting in the pine tree next to the pool. We enjoyed boules and darts competitions through our stay, and chess if you have the time to break away from the pool. This was our 3rd stay and we will be back again. Thank you Chris and Bill.
Beautiful villa with superb views
We have recently returned from a very relaxing holiday at Cortijo de Buho with our teenage daughters. The villa is very well equipped with exceptional outside space and private pool. The welcome pack waiting for us when we arrived was a lovely touch. Our host Ela was very welcoming and helpful during our stay. Very enjoyable holiday thank you.
A lovely place with lovely views.
We wanted somewhere to relax and chill out; especially with a private swimming pool.
We found it here, and to help us in our aim, there was also a boules (petanque) court. It gave us a chance to blow the cobwebs of our brand new set purchased 18 months ago and unused due to time constraints.
There was also a chess board and a dart board; I learn't that my wife was good at both (smile).
So we spent 10 days doing nothing but eating, playing, resting, swimming and sleeping in an idyllic location.
Our host Ella made us most welcome and we were most impressed with the Welcome Pack of wine, homemade marmalade and jam, as well as the normal tea and coffee.
Thank you Ella and thank you Chris and Billy for creating such a lovely place.
