4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Ardales, Province of Malaga, Andalucia
A lovely 4bedroom villa in the village of Ardales in the Andalucian lake district. It is less than 5 minutes walk to the heart of the village, but located on a quiet lane on one of the outer edges of the village giving it beautiful uninterrupted views of the countryside and also of the castle ruins- lit up at night.
The villa sleeps up to 8 people comfortably and had 3 bathrooms (one outdoor at the edge of the swimming pool), a lounge/diner with log fire in winter, a good kitchen with dishwasher and oven and a separate laundry/drying room.
There is plenty of crockery, cutlery, glassware and cooking utensils provided.
In the summer months you will no doubt spend most of your time outdoors enjoying the private swimming pool with its loungers, the garden and the terraces with ample seating for al fresco eating cooked on the large bbq.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed 19 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed at this lovely village for 11 nights in Aug. Villa was nice, typical Spanish villa lovely location viewing the mountains. Eryl was very friendly, helpful and knowledgable of the area. The lakes are amazing and the village traditional, unspoilt and rural. The people are extremely friendly, the driving is bonkers, this can be both amusing and scary!

i really think it definitely needs to be mentioned that although the villa is a 5 minute walk from the village, it is a 1/10 hill and is absolutely no good for people with walking difficulties. My husband and i both have restricted mobility and this caused a huge problem for us.

The villa is well presented but a couple of suggestions - a kettle and a toaster would be good and the bedding for some reason had plastic waterproof covers on, not ideal when it is 40 degrees!

Also, because the boiler is located on the veranda, the pilot goes out constantly so hardly any hot water ever and although welcome, cold...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 14 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed in what some say was the hottest oct in 70 years! Would definatley recommend to go end sept early oct! The villa has all you need and was very clean. Well equipped with towels and utensils. The outside area is great for eating and relaxing in. The pool is a good size, however is not heated and was very very cold! My 5 month daughter could not go in it! The view of the old castle ruin is great and surrounding hills. There is a wind farm near. I like them, however you can hear them a little.

The village of ardales is great. Very Spanish, pretty, not much English at all which Gives you a chance to learn Spanish. The people are really friendly. We felt so welcome.

Ideal location for the beautiful lakes. Clear blue, and hardly many people about. Also for climbing. El chorro is near and so are some great climbing spots.

We would deffinatley love to go back. Ardales is small, friendly and is such a refreshing change to all the tourist...
