Guests' quotes: "Beautiful property in fantastic location" "Luxury villa in a beautiful village" "A glimpse of paradise on earth!"

Casa Convento provides an exceptional standard of comfort, style and character which we feel will make your holiday a '5-star' event! It has been designed, built and furnished by me, Suzanne, the owner, using the very best 'ingredients'.

I will suggest car hire for you which gives you a discount.
On payment completion 6 weeks before your holiday,I provide all directions, photo route in the village and can direct you to a smartphone app to use my CCTV which shows whether there is a parking space right by the house or whether you should park in the car park about 200 metres away.
I also provide the key safe number which allows you to enter at your convenience (subject to time restrictions for entry on changeover) and contact numbers.
There is a lot of house info in the House Book and all instructions for equipment within.

A truly special house that was easily the best we have ever stayed in. Two luxurious bedrooms each on its own floor with first class bathrooms. An open lounge and kitchen, opening out to a fine terrace that gives a stunning panoramic view of the sleepy andelucian village of Canillas. The lounge is beautifully furnished, the kitchen modern, everything thought...

About the neighborhood
Although only 20 minutes beautiful driving from the coast into the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda National Park, Canillas de Aceituno is a world apart from the It retains all the sights, sounds, scents and spirit of traditional Andalucian life - potted flowers decorate the narrow side-streets, mules and goats pass by studiously ignoring humanity, the fish-delivery man calls out his wares, the village ladies practice their graceful flamenco in the evening cool. From here you can walk, paint, photograph, bird-watch, picnic, listen to the cicadas, drink the local wine, sample the village speciality - the famous fennel-scented morcilla sausage, in whose honour there is a village fiesta in April Or simply enjoy the tranquility and comfort of Casa Convento.

How to get there
Airport: Malaga: 40.4 mi
Malaga airport; many budget airlines scheduled at all times of year. I recommend Helle Hollis at the airport. Car essential. I recommend up to Peugeot 308 size - or other hatchback if possible. (More info on car rental with booking forms) From the airport take the E15-A7 eastwards towards Motril, leaving the motorway at junction Kilometre 272, Velez Malaga/ Torre del Mar exit. From here take the A335 inland for 10 kilometres and then follow signs to Canillas de Aceituno. Further Details will be sent at final payment.
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Nearest Beach: 11.2 mi.
