    Rental Home – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    El Cobertizo is an amazing unique shabby chic farmhouse with a Moroccan influence offering total privacy, all day sun and al fresco dining with a roof top sea view. We are located just a twenty minute picturesque drive from the beach into the hills overlooking the lush tropical valley of Los Banuelos once favoured by the Phoenicians.

    It is easily accessible to La Herradura, Salobrena, Nerja, Malaga and Marbella or a visit to Granada, the Alhambra and local markets for bargain hunting, Otivar water falls, day sailing from Marina del Este and many excellent restaurants for eating out. The villa benefits from its own private...

Two families with teenage children in need of a rest and some sun. This was the perfect place, with lots of room for everyone and every home comfort. The house is quirky and characterful, homely and delightfully 'foreign'. The pool is amazing. Almunecar was a drive away down a challenging road so we stocked up and stayed put a lot...

All amenities, accessible by car were open all year round, and the scenery everywhere is breathtaking. We felt happy and accepted, nothing was too much... more

After a little road trip throught the montain, you open the house's door and "Whaouh". The house is great whith all what you need, a big swimming pool a lot of terraces, you have the sun the whole day and no neighbours. This a little place of paradise. The owners are very kind. more
