About Mr John Wood

My wife and I live in Cornwall UK. Both retired with family and Grandchildren. We have spent many holidays with family in Spain and have always loved the weather, scenery, culture and food. We spend our winter months in the villa away from the cold and damp winter in the UK which gives us the best of both worlds. We especially love the villa because over the years it has become our second home, we spend many hours gardening in the warmer climate enjoying the peace and serenity it offers.

Mr John Wood purchased this villa in 2002

Why Mr John Wood chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

The reasons for buying the property and its location were several, firstly we fell in love with the Costa Del Sol many years ago when holidaying with family and friends. The location of Torrox was so appealing being central to the towns, the coast and motorway. Torrox being advertised as having one of the best climates in Europe, which also sold it for us. The property location we chose for the reasons being local to villages, Nerja, Torre Del Mar, Caleta Marina, banks, post offices, restaurants and night life. It is also just off major roads with access to Malaga airport, whilst being away from all the noise associated with it. The views from the property are spectacular accessed via 3km from the town of Torrox via a part tarmac/concrete part dirt road used quite frequently by other owners.

What makes this villa unique

The home with all its amenities, the private swimming pool, the peace and quiet, the half acre garden fully enclosed growing many species of fruit. The views of the sea, mountains, town and surrounding countryside and lovely walks. Torrox town is literally ten minutes away by car, Torrox Costa 15 minutes ride, where you have all the amenities you could need. There are gates at the entrance to the property giving it security, with ample room to park your vehicle. There are also more gates to keep the pool safe for young children. Internet and English programs on TV should they be required. The property was constructed for us by a local registered builder in 2002 and for both ourselves and guests we would hope it is home from home, with added benefits.

Relaxing family holiday in a superb villa.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying in the villa, the 1st being 2 years ago. We have been coming to this area of Spain for about 8 years, and this villa is a fabulous find. The track is rough towards the end but absolutely fine. It was so lovely going back to somewhere we knew. You never tire of the stunning views once at the back of the property.

You overlook lovely Torrox Pueblo with the sea in the distance, and to the right are the mountains - gorgeous!!

Lots of lovely meals/tapas had in Torrox and in nearby Competa ( in particular Restaurant El Pilon) and the beaches visited at Torrox Costa and Burriana in Nerja.

The villa is just home from home, very well equipped but with added sun and a pool !!!

Great communications from the owners throughout the whole booking process.

I would definitely recommend this villa for a fabulous, relaxing family holiday. We will be returning again, I am sure!

What more can I say!!

Fantastic spacious peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in different villas around Torrox for the last 10 years and I can honestly say this was my favourite.

Very clean and very spacious I loved the layout.

The pool is fenced off with gates that can be locked to stop toddlers wandering too close if needed.

There is a winding track to the villa but this is worth every step when you see the stunning views.

We were met by a Freind of the owner of the villa just off the motorway and he lead us up to the villa which completely took the stress out of finding it.

He also sorted any problems we had out which was only one small thing but he was out to help within the hour.

We will definitely be returning soon.

Relaxing, peaceful Villa.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for a family holiday, with two teenagers and a 12 year old for a 15 night stay. Wonderful villa, stunning scenery which you only appreciate once at the back of the property. You look down over the lovely village of Torrox, to the right you have the stunning mountains and in the short distance ahead , the coast. There is a good size pool with gradual step entry with lights you can use for night swimming - lovely ! The villa was clean and well maintained. All of our meals were eaten under the veranda, which was lovely. There is a BBQ but you cannot use in July or August due to fire risks (which we found out upon arrival) but after speaking to the owner when we arrived (as our holiday covered the latter end of August and beginning of Sept), he said that with due care and attention using charcoal not paper, we were allowed to use. There is Wifi in the villa, which is invaluable with teenagers! The villa is home from home with the added benefits of the sun!! The lovely villages of Frigiliana and Competa are very picturesque and worth a visit. Nerja is a larger town further down the coast which is lovely too, with a wider range of watersports. Torrox Costa is the nearest beach, this also has pedaloes for hire. To be honest, the road/track leading to the villa was a little worse than we expected but having seen it the following morning in daylight and having driven a couple of times, it was fine. Great communications with the owners, both before and during our holiday. You are met by the Meet and Greet agents, who are were friendly. All in all, a fabulous holiday for my family and we would love to return to the villa one day. We would recommend for a relaxing, peaceful holiday.

well kept expionlally clean

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous villa with great views quite and secluded.

the villa is well equipped with all modern facilities .Satellite/Sky TV with English programmes. Air con for those very hot nights.

The pool was amazing , really lovely at night with the pool lights on.

The owners were very helpful and made arrangements for us to be met and taken to the villa.

A car is essential although

We found the single lane dirt track up to and from the villa was very difficult and at times and very scary.

Owner's Response: Hi thank you for your review. I am sorry you found the road scary. As explained in the advert the villa is situated 5 minutes on a part dirt, part concrete track which is used daily by many residents and holidays rentals. To experience the quiet tranquility and outstanding views it is required to leave the town and drive a little way up the hill, this is similar to if you were holidaying in the countryside in England you would be expected to drive down some country lanes. Thank you for your review John and Joan Wood.

A peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful setting for a family holiday. Going through the garden gate you catch a glimpse of the view and, when you walk to the pool and look out from the balcony, there is a sweeping vista of mountains in one direction, then the village of Torrox in the valley below and finally the coast just a few miles away.

The villa itself had everything we needed and was very clean and nicely furnished. We had most of our meals on the lovely shaded terrace and we all enjoyed the good-sized pool - our grand-children especially loved swimming at night when the pool lights were switched on.

Torrox village is delightful, as is the nearby village of Frigiliana. Torrox Costa is about 15 mins. drive from the villa and has a wide choice of shops and restaurants and a further 20 minutes drive along the coast takes you to the larger town of Nerja.

We would strongly recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday in lovely surroundings
