Spent a week here at the end of June. Arrived early but Toni (English owner) was very welcoming. Lovely large room with en suite bathroom and small kitchen with electric two ring hob and a small fridge and microwave. This was large enough to produce a simple meal. Air conditioning was excellent and much needed due to Spanish heatwave during... More

Very peaceful location near the hills and a short car drive to beaches. Felt very at home and could have stayed longer ! Perfect base for walking, cycling or simply exploring the many hidden gems this area has to offer. Bed was amazing too. Thank you !!

Our first stop in Spain was the Escuela, and it couldn't have been a better choice. Nestled in the countryside of Velez-Malaga, it gave us a chance to rest and get our bearings. The room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Warm welcome from our hosts and a delicious breakfast every morning.

Very nice, quite place in a authentic andalusian house. Lot's of fruit- and vegetable-farming around. Only 3 guestrooms with a personal and friendly atmosphere. Pool and well-kept garden with lots of fruit-trees invite to laid-back spaces of time. Very good and large beds help to good sleep and all needed stress relief. To use the wood-stove in the colder season... More

Thank you Veronica, we loved having you! You are right, a car is highly recommended as there is plenty to see, which without a car you can't reach. But it's good to relax in the gardens too, and do very little! See you again and once again, many thanks for staying at the Escuela! xx More

Really charming place amongst the orchards of Vélez-Malaga. The room and the bedding are really comfortable, equipped with own kitchen and bath room. Yes the Andalusian cats are around, that is part of the welcoming.... they're so nice and friendly. The garden with swimming pool and playground are the ideal place to enjoy the sun or to simply relax. Very... More

Delightful host and hostess who are full of interesting ideas for outings in the immediate region that took us outside the boundaries of typical travel guides. Our family group of four adults and four children enjoyed recreation on the outdoor patio, and exploring the old citrus groves on the surrounding hillsides. Super internet connection. The cold, crisp winter nights were... More

We stayed two weeks at the escuela, and we are fully satisfied. It is a secluded location but close to everything (sea, trade, restaurants), quiet and peaceful! The garden and beautiful location ideally placed, with a view of the mountains breathtaking. We'll be back next year, it's almost certain. Thanx for all Toni, Imanol, Mikael and Julian.

Myself & my partner love the area but never found the perfect location, problem solved, the Escula is great for the coast and brilliant for exploring inland and the countless White washed villages it has to offer. The room met all our needs and the owners were so helpful it was unreal, every day we seem to acquire more and... More

Three of us stayed here recently and frankly we didn't want to leave. The tranquility of the place is just lovely, we felt so relaxed and looked after that we wished we have booked for longer.
