The villa was immaculately presented and was in a perfect location for us - far enough away from the madding crowd, but close enough to all amenities that we could possibly need (though a car is essential). Quaint village just across the valley - we must have arrived in the middle of a festival, as the locals let off fireworks every night except for our last! Everything we could have needed and more was provided, and the welcome basket was most appreciated (especially the wine!). The unheated private pool was perfect for the time of year, as every day hit 30 degrees during our stay. We would definitely consider a return visit. Thank you Brian.
Our second year at Casa Torreta and we have enjoyed every minute. The region is truly beautiful and the Casa has a good sized pool and every home comfort you could want.
By day and night you get beautiful views over hills and mountains enjoying the peace and tranquility of the casa.
Iznate village is a short 10-15 minute walk from the casa where you can find a couple of bars serving lovely home cooked Spanish food, you are made to feel very welcome by the locals of this little picturesque Spanish village.
Beautiful Nerja is a short drive as is the coastal resort of Torre del Mar with its lovely promenade.
We have returned tanned, rested and relaxed. A gem of a place and we are sure we will be back!
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Toreta,the Casa is everything we hoped for and more.Brians description and photographs are exactly what awaits you,it certainly has the WOW factor.The walk into Iznate is a 20 minutes leisurely stroll and the village has a great atmosphere in the evening,check out Bar Tejada,great food and service.We were a family of 6 including our 5 year old Grandson and the villa is totally safe and secure for little ones.Rob and Juliet who look after the Casa are very helpful and our welcome basket was a great touch.All in all if you are looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday away from the tourist hoards,look no further Casa Toreta is for you.We will return!!
Beautiful location in a wonderful spot. A pretty villa set amongst Mango and Avacado trees. It is a 10 min walk from the village. The villa has a lovely pool and is very tranquil. Villagers are very friendly, there are some nice bars and a bakery and two small supermarkets. Larger attractions are about 5km away nearer the coast.
Stayed in many villas in the south of Spain and this is one of the best. Superb panoramic views with a serene ambience due to its quiet location and spacious layout. The evenings are so relaxing, we chose to sit at the side which was cooler and you could still see the sun set through the porch arches. Everything is provided for your comfort and we especially appreciated the welcome pack with new cleaning cloths and dishwasher tablets, the recycling bins and bags and the extensive collection of books. Plenty of clean towels (including beach towels) and immaculate quality linen all added to a very pleasant stay. As expected with villas in the hills, access is usually via a small track but the location and access was not an issue here, just off a main road and up a private road. We felt safe and blessed to stay in a traditional Spanish area complete with fruit plantations, nomadic goat keepers and the beautiful village of Iznate just below us and just a few minutes walk away it is a truly lovely setting. There a many fine eateries around and you can easily reach the beach and shops in Torre del Mar in around 20 minutes.
