“The perfect place for our lively family reunion!”

A dream of a holiday home for our bi-annual family reunion! It offers enough space for joint activities or privacy. The house is in excellent condition and beautifully maintained. The owner has thought of even the smallest details which you would expect only at five stars hotels. We enjoyed the clean pool and the well-kept tennis court but also the wonderful patio overlooking the valley and the sea. Those who love to cook will be overwhelmed by a spacious and well-equipped kitchen. And if there were any questions, John provided efficient but discreet help. Our high expectations were surpassed and we couldn't name a single point of critisism - except the fact that we had to leave paradise after one week.

“Wonderfully spacious, luxurious, stunning villa!”

We spent a wonderful week at La Roca Rara with 3 other families this August. In all there were 8 adults and 9 children (mainly teenagers). I couldn't recommend the villa highly enough! It is incredibly well-appointed, extremely comfortable and beautifully laid out. There was easily enough space for 17 of us - it was never hard to find a quiet corner to escape to when needed. Lovely pool - pool in the centre of the villa works really well. High quality tennis court. Beautiful views. Comfortable beds. Huge kitchen with 2 dishwashers, loads of fridge space. We were very well looked after by John. He was relaxed and informal but very attentive and even though they live on site we barely noticed their presence. Very discrete. We have booked again.

“Large Family Friendly Villa offering Luxurious and Practical Accommodation”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I had a fantastic week staying here as part of large group of friends family celebrating a Wedding which took place at the villa.

The villa itself is extremely spacious, all the en-suite bedrooms are very large and my room comfortably accommodated me and my two children. The rooms are all off a main court yard surrounding a generously sized swimming pool. The courtyard offers the opportunity to sun bathe whilst at the same time provides plenty of shaded seating area in such a way that one still feels that everybody is somehow still all together.

The kitchen is light and airy and worked both as good preparation area for caterers and as a family kitchen, it is very well equipped with two cookers, two fridges etc and an abundance of good quality cutlery and crockery.

The main living hall is vast , the raised area at the rear acts as a good TV area with sofas and chairs and a large flat screen TV with DVD player. The main hall in it's entirety , with it's beautiful vaulted ceiling is great party and dining area ideal for weddings and parties.
This space leads onto a very large terrace over looking Nerja town and the beach in the distance. A pergola provides shade for eating and sitting under and there are table here for dining.

To the rear of the villa is a lovely well kept garden , the drive with plenty of space to park cars for all the guests leads down to a tennis court located away from the villa.

All in all it is the perfect villa for a large group, it never felt cramped, it is big enough to find peace and quiet somewhere to do a bit of reading say whilst the main throng might be gathered round the pool, or on the terrace or in the reception areas.

“Spacious, dramatic house in convenient location”
Reviewed 3 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Picturesque, masses of space, well maintained by helpful caretaker, central swimming pool with lots of shade, good tennis court, and extensive gardens if you want some privacy from your group.

Close to amenities and a hotel nearby where transport can be arranged if required.

Will be perfect once kitchen is updated. Highly recommended.

“Exceeded all of our highest expectations!”
Reviewed 13 August 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We rented this villa for a wedding in April, having the ceremony and reception at the villa, and also staying for a week as a holiday. We were a group of extended family and close friends. We kept the location secret from everybody until arrival at Malaga airport so that nobody had any pre-conceptions of what to expect. Although we had made the booking and seen the photos we were just as much blown away as the other guests. The villa has immense 'wow' factor and is faultless for such a family gathering. The rooms were beautiful, the furnishings practical and stylish, and the facilities second to none, from central swimming pool, to sauna and tennis court. Being able to step out of the bedroom each morning and dive directly into the pool was such a treat. The on site caretaker was helpful, and there was a very nice touch from the owners of a bottle of bubbly and flowers for the bride and groom.
The villa is well situated from Nerja, just a five minute drive away. Frigiliana is also very beautiful and nearby. There is also a decent hotel just a short stroll down the road which is good value, and handy for those guests that couldn't stay at the villa.
We had the perfect wedding / holiday and cannot recommend this place highly enough.
