Holiday villa with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms & private pool near Maro-Nerja - Costa del Sol
Holiday villa located in the midst of the Maro Nature Park - close to the beautiful beaches of the Costa del Sol. Between the coastal towns of Nerja and Almuñecar there is the nature park Acantilados de Maro y Cerro Gordo, one of the last undeveloped natural areas of the Costa del Sol. It is a picturesque location, with beautiful pine forested mountains, hidden coves and spectacular natural scenery.
Villa Bonifacio is situated in the midst of this park, right on the border of the provinces of Malaga and Granada and above two beaches, Playa Canuelo and Playa Cantarrijan, at an altitude of approximately 400 metres. The views are spectacular - on clear winter days you can even see the Moroccan coastline in the distance.
And not only the location and the views are great but the cottage too is aesthetically charming and built with untold time and effort. There are 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a spacious living room with open plan kitchen. The decor is very tasteful with lots of wood, Andalusian tiles and slates both inside and outside.
Aircondirioning and Wi-Fi available! The pool terrace is a dream, equipped with a curved shaped pool, outdoor shower, several sitting areas and a myriad of subtropical plants. At night, with the lanterns lit, it is simply beautiful.
Next to the house there is a partially covered terrace facing south with another fantastic view and artistic furnishing, like the barbecue and kitchenette made with Andalusian tiles.
... and now to the story of the house itself: In the 1960s, only a few families lived in basic farms in this secluded valley. As the first hippies and Northern Europeans started to settle 100 km to the west in Torremolinos, there were still no roads or electricity and water was brought up in buckets from the springs. The current owner, Miguel, farmed the large estate with his mother and six siblings after their father had died when quite young. In the valley, there was a small primary school for the children of the area. Well, those days are now long gone - but only someone who has grown up here can have the patience, consistency and attention to detail to create such a lovely place as Villa Bonifacio. When I asked if he spoke a bit of English, Miguel said, "I do not speak English and my Spanish is just as bad!". Our holiday guests will get to know Miguel and, if you opt for this fantastic holiday home he will come on his moped to meet you in Nerja.
Note the directions: The road to the house is paved all the way but steep and there is a particularly tight curve. It is perfectly accessible with any rental car although you should be an experienced driver without a fear of heights!
