Breakfast in the sun ... lunch in the shade ... dinner under the stars.   ...

Try and drag yourself away from here!  Sunrise, sunset or any time.  Breathtaking views

Alcaucin, Province of Malaga, Andalucia
This is the real Spain! In the heart of little-known Axarquia in a stunning location with wonderful views of the mountains and the beautiful Vinuela valley below, Casa Louisa is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Facing south, it has sun from around breakfast time until sunset with the unspoilt natural beauty of the Sierras all around. Although it looks and feels like a traditional Spanish house, it's newly built with all the comforts of the 21st century. There's a larger-than-average private pool with large corner pool house , a delightful covered terrace with large marble table for dining, sun-trap balcony and several other terraces with sofas and chairs to sit in comfort ... plenty of room for everyone to do just what they want. If summer-time lazing by the pool appeals ... or reading in the shade of an olive tree ..... Read more

Our third visit to Casa Louisa was as fantastic as the previous two. As always, Jill was a superstar - flexible and accommodating with our booking. The house managers in Spain (Steve and June) had done a marvellous job - the villa was scrupulously clean for our arrival. Casa Louisa is a 'home from home' with everything we could possibly...

Management response:

So glad yet another visit was a success! Sometimes re-visiting can be a let down but Casa Louisa seems to have a place in your hearts. Writing a review is an effort once a holiday is behind you but is helpful information for future guests trying to work out where to go .. there is so much choice now! Thanks...

We just spent 2 weeks in this wonderful villa. It has breathtaking views from every terrace and pool area and the photographs do not do it justice. The entire villa is beautifully maintained and equipped with absolutely everything you could wish for. The location is peaceful, at the expense of a slightly hairy last few minutes drive over unmade road....

Management response:

Delighted you all had a great time! We all love being at Casa Louisa and to know others have enjoyed themselves as well is the perfect compliment. And yes ... Spanish roads do take a bit of getting used to after our lovely smooth tarmac roads in Britain! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. Its...

We love this area of Spain and staying in Casa Louisa made it all the more memorable. The villa has everything needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The outdoor areas are just perfect for enjoying the alfresco lifestyle and have enough space for everyone to either be together or appreciate a bit of peace and quiet. It's a beautiful...

Management response:

We are delighted you all enjoyed yourselves! It really is a pleasure to share Casa Louisa with others who appreciate not only the peace to be found in Andalucia's countryside but, as well, the gorgeous mountainside situation with its spectacular views. Its very important to be comfortable on holiday, too, and it seems you were! Thank you for looking after...

About the neighbourhood
In the peaceful village of Alcaucin, just below the National Park, you will find a jumble of little white houses clinging to the hillside, narrow cobbled streets and rushing fountains of pure mountain streams which water the whole valley. The old men of the village still sit in the square or in a bar drinking sweet wine, banging dominoes and putting the world to rights as they have for a hundred years or more. You will find everything you need here and in Puente don Manuel, 6 kms away with fresh local vegetables and seasonal fruit, excellent meat, cheeses, oils, wines and good bread ... and banks and a post office. As well, there are some excellent, good-value restaurants in the valley close by. Go down to the coast for some delicious sea-food .. choose pork from the spit roast in th... more

How to get there
Airport: Malaga: 64.0 km
Railway: Malaga: 60.0 km
Fly to Malaga Airport and hire a car* . From there its a straightforward one hour drive, first on the costal motorway for 40 minutes and then into the hills to meet our House Managers. They will be waiting for you when you arrive and will guide you to Casa Louisa - another 5 minutes or so. They will show you round, answer any questions you may have and, of course, give you a key.

*Hiring a car at the airport or from a local family-run company is no problem either way ... you will be spoilt for choice..
