About Susan Lovett
We are a couple living and working in England where our three adult children live. We have enjoyed many European holidays including camping and staying in privately owned villas. We spent a great deal of time looking for our ideal property to spend relaxing holidays with family and friends in the years to come. It is our intention to visit the property on a very regular basis and offer a sunny retreat for our family from the hub-bub of modern life. We have been lucky enough to find an excellent house manager, to ensure the villa is maintained to a high standard A main attraction of the property for us was the privacy and the stunning scenery surrounding the house on every side; most of our time is spent outside on the terraces.
Susan Lovett purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Susan Lovett chose Torrox
We settled on Cerro Pastora early this year, after deciding that we wanted to experience typical Spanish life, whilst not being too far from the coast and busier towns. We were particularly attracted to Torrox with its 'family' feel, small square and very reasonably priced restaurants,where we have enjoyed many lunches, suppers and festivals with friends. Of particular appeal to us is the privacy afforded by the property and the stunning scenery surrounding the villa on all sides. There is no passing traffic but a concrete road up to the villa.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa offers an ideal environment for relaxation; whilst at the same time having good access to the cosmopolitan life of southern Spain. There is peace and quiet when you want it, and Wi-Fi/ satellite TV/ X-Box/ Pool Table/ Ping-Pong/ Boules.... so when activity strikes a chord we're up and ready! We like cycling... down hill is easy, uphill a bit more challenging. There are 2 mountain bikes at the property for the use of guests.

A spectacular villa, in a fabulous location, with stunning views and great owners
A beautiful property in a stunning location on a mountain top with amazing mountain and sea views! The villa itself is fabulous with great indoor and outdoor space (including a pétanque court, a game we fell in love with during our stay!).
Whilst the road up to the villa is a little nervy on the first occasion, you soon get used to the road and the views make it worth every moment. The location at the top of the mountain means that it is far windier than at sea level, which if the clouds come in can make for an interesting, yet spectacular scene. The pool is perfect for relaxation and the kids loved it. There is also a small area alongside the pool with a glass partition which protects you from the wind and is that little bit warmer if not the hottest day (we nicknamed it ‘cosy corner’).
The villa is around 15 minutes from the Torrox motorway junction, which proved to be a handy base for Torrox & Torrox Costa, as well as Frigiliana and Nerja. We had some beautiful meals in Torrox (La Casa and El Figon) and Frigiliana (El Casino) and beautiful Tapas in Nerja.
The owners were fantastically responsive and the Property Manager (Rob) was just great, really helpful (which was handy as we locked ourselves out on our first night, meaning we needed to meet him to get a spare key to avoid a night in the car!).
All in all a spectacular villa, in a fabulous location, with stunning views and great owners ... what more could you ask for?
Thank you so much for your very kind review. Its always good to hear when families have had a good holiday.
If you have read Driving Over Lemons and aspire to the Andalucian lifestyle then this is the property for you. However there is nothing rustic about this villa which is equipped with all mod cons for a comfortable stay. The WiFi was excellent. Aircon, not needed on our stay and by far the best fridge we’ve experienced in a rental keeping the beers supercooled.
The views are simply stunning. We were fortunate to experience excellent visibility before the summer heat haze sets in. The wildlife would make the Durrells envious. We watched eagles soar and hoopoes followed us along the lane.
The beauty of Frigiliana lies across the valley with Nerja and its coves at the foot. Granada and the must see Alhambra are within easy reach.
Tips: Beware of newly installed and concealed speed cameras on the motorways around Malaga. Choose a hire car up to the task.
An absolute GEM of a villa! spectacular location and superb facilities! We loved it!
We had a fabulous week at this location, the villa is located at the top of a hillside with views down to the coast and over the mountains, it is simply stunning and the views are breathtaking. The 1st drive up is a little unnerving but once you arrive it is spectacular.(Definitely use the owners directions, do NOT use googlemaps)
The villa itself is beautifully maintained and so well equipped you really have everything you need for a fantastic family holiday. There is so much space and a fantastic choice of peaceful, quiet spots all around the villa to just soak up the sunshine, chill out by the pool and totally relax and unwind. Our kids loved the swimming pool, pool table and board games on an evening and the villa easily accommodated our party of 4 adults & 4 kids (7-14yrs)
The owner is incredibly helpful and very responsive to emails and the property manager is on hand if you need any help with anything during your stay. (Thank you for all your help & tips x)
Torrox Pueblo and Costa are just a 10 minute drive where you can find some fabulous tapas and restaurants, not too busy and easily accessible. The village of Frigliana is a little further but it is beautiful and the kids loved the little land train tour around the village. There are some lovely quiet little coves and beaches along the coast road if you choose to explore. Just over an hour away through the Sierra Nevada mountains is the wonderful city of Granada with the amazing UNESCO world heritage site of the Alhambra Palace (prebook tickets).......
This beautiful villa is a perfect base to return to for a siesta and sangria. We loved every minute of our stay and didn't want to leave.
This was our first time in Spain and we really did love our stay here.
We will miss sitting on the roof terrace watching the sun come up over the mountains..... a wonderful place to stay and thoroughly recommended.
Wonderful villa and glorious weather.
A great week in this fabulous villa with everything we needed for a relaxing ten days holiday. Pool, pool table, table tennis and lots of space.
It would be hard to not have a good holiday here
This property has everything - views to die for, spots to relax and enough to keep our kids (8 to 12) entertained (petanque, pool, table tennis, pool table)...we also took a couple of walks to the otherside of the mountain too.
The property is really well laid out so that you don't feel you are living in each others pocket (we shared with another family).
The property is clean and well maintained.
Frigiliana, Torrox and Nerja are all a short easy drive but a car is essential.
Fantastic Villa, with amazing views.
Had a fantastic week, This villa is most definitely as described if not better, very spacious and well maintained, very peaceful and quiet with the most amazing views, from every angle, The swimming pool was a big hit with all of us. It is not too far to the beach and shops, and plenty of restaurants, I would most definitely recommend this villa to friends and family, and would definitely visit again myself.
Coast/Beach: The villa is a 10 minute drive from the beach in Torrox and 15 minutes from Nerja Travel: Malaga airport can be reached from around 20 UK airports. Several airlines, including Monarch, Ryanair, Easyjet and BA operate on these routes. Car hire from the airport is straight-forward and much cheaper than most European destinations. Distances: Nearest village is Torrox, which is a 10minute drive away. It is an unspoilt, traditional Spanish village with whitewashed buildings surrounding a square with several excellent family restaurants, serving Tapas and various Spanish/ English dishes. Frigliana is a delightful village, popular with artists and also has many restaurants and bars. Nerja is about 20-25 minutes drive away and is much more 'touristy' It is very picturesque with cobbled streets, lots of gift shops, restaurants etc Further Details: For those interested in walking, there are several walks/hikes of varying degrees of difficulty very close to the villa, it is not unusual to come across herds of wild goats! Locals are very friendly A car is required- it is not possible to walk to the shops. There are a few restaurants within 10 minutes of the property in the Campo
