Family-friendly villa in Casarabonela with outdoor pool
Between Malaga, Marbella, Ronda & Granada in the ruggedly beautiful coastal mountains of the protected biosphere of Sierra las Nieves, you will find the beautiful Villa Flores. Immersed in nature and surrounded by olive, almond and various fruit and nut trees, this private and secluded villa with its solar heated pool is the perfect place to relax, unwind, enjoy the breath taking views and listen to the birdsong.
Villa Flores is a well equipped property where you will find a place of peace, rest, comfort & tranquillity provided by the property & its naturally calm position, set in its own exciting grounds. You will probably only visit the beach once, as with most of the other attractions in the area, because at Villa Flores you will not feel the urge to venture very far from this therapeutic, safe and friendly environment. But if you are feeling energetic to explore, there are three local Andalucian white-washed mountain villages within 15 minutes, all offering local cuisine and shops. The nearest restaurant is 5 minutes by car and offers excellent local cuisine, music and dancing. The famous Caminito del Rey is beside the turquoise Ardales lakes 25 minutes away, Ronda, Malaga and the coast are just under one hour away, Granada and the Al Hambra Palace are 1.5 hours and Seville and Cordoba are 2 hours.
You can enjoy stunning mountain walks or bike rides in the surrounding mountains or on the various tracks, take memorable photos and soak in the natural beauty.
The villa offers very spacious and comfortable living and dining areas for all to spread out or come together, extensive terraces and various private places to escape. The kitchen is very well equipped and enjoys a central location for a busy chef. The villa is enjoyed throughout the year, and in winter you can enjoy the log fire and by night and warm sunlight in daytime. The pool is solar heated which extends the swimming season.
The spacious well equipped BBQ / summer kitchen is located off the pool terrace and enjoys great views, and a place to dine under the shade.
This is truly a little piece of paradise for nature lovers and those wishing to escape the busy rat race and recharge the batteries and have some much needed relaxation and fun.
Catering, musicians, flamenco dancers, birthday and wedding parties can be arranged on request, masseur available by appointment.
We will have the villa prepared for your holiday using the latest cleaning protocols as suggested by the WHO for your added safety and protection in these uncertain times. Additionally we can arrange for our local Eroski supermarket to deliver your groceries and wines to the villa, at no extra cost, If you have any specific requests we will do our best to satisfy them, and look forward to welcoming you to Villa Flores

Great location and outside area but not the best bedroom's
We planned our family reunion vacation for about 5 months upfront and chose the Villa Rosa property based on the previous reviews, the availability of the pool on the property, and nice views. Our group consisted of 4 kids and 9 adults. Pros + - Nice outdoor area with pool, lounge chairs, dining table, and grill area - Amazing views of the mountains and a quiet, remote location - Fully functional/equipped kitchen with 2 big fridges and two ovens - The hostess, Roma is a very kind and helpful person - she was responsive at all times! She lives in the unit above the 2nd building across the courtyard area but you never see her during the day. Cons - - Our biggest disappointment was the bedrooms. Only 2 out 6 bedrooms can be called "normal" or regular (comfortably furnished and good size). The rest of the bedrooms were very small rooms with low ceilings very basic furniture and no AC. One of the bedrooms on the lower level was really dark as well. - We were surprised that the AC unit was installed only in the living room and 1 bedroom and neither one was in working condition. Still we were told that use of AC would be an extra 150Euro per week. The rest of the bedrooms had just regular fans. - Be ready to remove your trash from the can during your stay and drive them to the city (20 min drive) as there is no garbage removal service available. - very difficult road to get into the property, as its located in an absolutely remote mountain spot, you have to drive about 25 kilometers on a very narrow mountain road, better not to take that route at night, it can be quite dangerous. This quality of accommodations (and this goes towards the 3 bedrooms very modest bedrooms) deserve a 3-star review but because of the host Roma who was very nice and helpful, we are giving it 4 Stars. From local activities, we recommend a trip to the old town in Marbella, which is about a 1hr:15minutes drive.

Beautiful villa with pool in remote location
We had a wonderful week in this villa, staying as a group of friends from uni (a mix of couples and single people). It’s in a beautiful remote location in the Andalusian mountains. We particularly enjoyed the communal areas such as the pool, outdoor BBQ and eating area, and the dining table in the conservatory under strings of fairy lights which was a lovely touch. There are a few things to be aware of before booking the villa. Firstly the location is very remote and involves a 20 min drive to the nearest town/supermarket along winding roads and eventually a short dirt track. So choose your hire cars wisely! The pool is quite deep and probably wouldn’t be suitable for young children. A few of the bedrooms are not in the main house but in separate annexes. Roma, the host, lives in an apartment above one of these but you barely know she is there, and she encouraged us to make as much noise as we wanted and never complained. None of these things were an issue for us but it is helpful to be aware before arrival. All in all we would definitely recommend the villa - and do visit the Ardales lakes and Ronda which are both a short drive away.

Lovely birthday celebration
I stayed here last month for a week with my family to celebrate a milestone birthday, a fabulous time was had by all. Roma was waiting to greet us on our arrival and went through all the instructions as quickly as possible to allow us to enjoy the start of our holiday. There were a couple of small things at the beginning that needed attention but I messaged Roma and she came immediately and both things were instantly resolved. My daughter also contacted Roma before our arrival (which I knew nothing about) & Roma ordered and collected a birthday cake for me for my family to surprise me with, very special. We had 6 small children, aged from 1yr to 5 yrs and they made a lot of noise but this was never an issue which allowed us to be more relaxed. It’s a lovely property but, with hindsight, probably not ideal when there are 6 small children due to the layout of the property. Also, one of the double beds was elevated and accessed by a ladder which, in our situation, made it unusable so we were immediately reduced to 5 bedrooms but managed to get around this fairly easily with some movement of furniture, which Roma had no issue with. I think maybe the layout of the bedrooms needs to be made clearer on the website as I don’t recall seeing anything about the elevated one, 2 are across the courtyard and another double is outside, down the steps and under the property. Only 3 of the bedrooms and 2 of the bathrooms are actually in the main house. We also had an issue with wasp nests but again, Roma dealt with this very quickly and we vacated the property for the day to allow for the professionals to deal with them. I would definitely recommend this property for a group of adults or adults with older children. We had a fabulous time, the favourite bit was the pool for the children and the pool and superb location for the adults. It literally is in the middle of nowhere and all you see is the beautiful mountains, the view would be very hard to beat, it was amazing and very relaxing. Thank you for a fabulous stay, it helped to make my birthday so very special.

Stunning scenery & great location
10 adults wanted to be together in rural location with great views & scenery to celebrate an important birthday. Well equipped, helpful & knowlegable host who was keen to ensure we had a good time. It forfilled all our expectations. Interesting route up from nearest town but that added to the adventure - just glad we didn't do it in the dark the first time !

Lovely stay
As a family group of 9 adults with one baby we had a super week. . Views from the villa are amazing and in such a peaceful spot. 15 - 20 mins drive to nearest village. . Plenty of space to park the cars. . The living area is vast with numerous sofas and chairs dotted around and a chose of tables to dine at both indoors and outdoors. The kitchen was very well equipped, we wanted for nothing. . As stated you need to use bottle water for cooking and drinking or walk up the drive to the "Spring" and collect water. An activity some of our party loved doing. . Bedrooms were also dotted around, might be difficult if you have young children as the twin rooms are not in the main house. Only 2 bedrooms are in the villa plus what the description calls the "fun bedroom " . Beds very comfy and excellent bathrooms. . Beautiful outdoor pool but unfortunately in May not warm enough to use. . Roma was always helpful and contactable if needed and she cooked us a lovely paella on our last night. A big thank you to her.
