Un endroit magique

  • 4 of 5

Quel merveilleux endroit et qui change des vacances traditionnelles.

Le village d'otivar est vraiment charmant, je vous conseille d'aller diner au premier restaurant qui se trouve sur votre gauche lorsque vous descendez de la villa.

Les propriétaires sont adorables et la nourriture est très bonne et à bas prix.

Certes, le premier jour, ces routes sinueuses donnent mal à la tête mais quelques jours après, elles vous manquent...

La villa est parfaitement située, vous êtes à moins d'une heure de malaga, grenade et à moins de 2h des golfs qui méritent de faire ce voyage(valderrama, finca cortesin et sotogrande).

Rien à dire sur la villa, tout est parfait, les trois terrasses sont incroyables, des ambiances différentes chaque soir, des vues incroyables mer et montagnes, une charmante piscine, bref le Paradis!

Les petits bémols: pas de machine à laver dans la villa, pas de télévision et je pense que la villa se rapproche plus des 40m2 que des 50m2, idéal pour un couple avec des enfants, moins évident à deux couples.

Dernier bémol, retenir 10 euros sur la caution pour deux verres à 1 euro pièce, ainsi qu'un matelas gonflable indiqué comme tel sur son étiquette mais servant, en fait de lit d'appoint. Ce dernier n' a été en aucun cas détérioré cela est moyen mais nous dirons que cela aura été notre taxe de séjour...

Nous y retournons avec grand plaisir lors de notre retour en Andalousie.

A mountain paradise well worth a visit!

  • 5 of 5

Las Tierras del Sur is ideally located - within 90 min drive from Malaga Airport, 20 min from the Mediterranean Sea, yet within the tranquil and protective surround of the Sierra Nevada Mountains - Costa Tropical.

In reality this was a perfect setting which could not be truly described by words / photos alone and surpassed that described by Serge and Maria in their advertisement for the property. A piece of heaven on earth.

Less than 5 min takes you from the villa to the village of Otivar which has a bakery, bank with ATM, several supermarkets and restaurants. Almunecar, 20 min away, offers large supermarkets including DIA, LIDL and Mercado and a fantastic range of beachside shopping and eating establishments.

Also the beautiful La Herradura coastal village is a must visit.

Granada is 1 hr away travelling through the mountainous Sierra Nevada National Park and other local attractions include Nerja Caves, Nerja Town and Frigiliana - a beautiful hillside and historic village.

On arrival at Otivar village Serge met us with a friendly and warm welcome in the village centre and we then followed him the few minutes up the mountain road to the villa where Maria was waiting for us along with Indigo and Maya - the two family pet dogs.

They gave us a very comprehensive tour of the villa and the grounds including the BBQ, fruit trees and pool area, ensuring we had everything we needed and understood where everything was and how it worked.

The property was spotless and beautifully maintained.

They then left us a large bowl of fruit from the garden trees, bottle of water and a bottle of chilled Cava which was thoroughly enjoyed!

Whilst giving us space to enjoy our holiday we knew Serge was always nearby if required and we were delighted to be able to discuss with him places to go, restaurants to try and tips that he knew would enhance our holiday time.

Also Serge surprised us regularly throughout our stay by leaving fresh produce on the table in the terrace for us to enjoy - fruit and vegetables.

The two dogs are so well trained - we love dogs and encouraged them to stay with us when we were about the villa - but they knew not to come into the building and waited outside. The dogs made adorable companions who we miss already!

Serge and Maria were the perfect hosts, we will visit them again and have already sent links to the villa to family and friends to whom we have recommended this villa.

Merci millefois!

un endroit de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Très agréable séjour! Un endroit particulièrement conforme à sa description. Joliment meublé, très bien situé (si vous n'avez pas peur de rouler sur des routes en lacets), avec une vue superbe, des hôtes attentifs et sympathiques. A recommander.
