Casa la BuenaVida is our much loved family villa built by a local Spanish builder in 2002. Initially the builder wanted the home for himself and his family but about half way through the building work, we came across it, saw the wonderful location, fell in love with it and made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Today, we are very good friends with the builder who we think must have regretted his decision because now he has become one of our neighbours!Our hillside is dotted with some very impressive, exclusive properties but although many have fine views, none compare to the stunning 360 degree vistas of Casa la BuenaVida.Breathtaking views, alfresco dining, brilliant BBQ's, gorgeous swimming pool, romantic moonlit skies, invigorating sunrises, red glowing sunsets. The perfect place to relax - the perfect place for families, for we... Read more

About the neighborhood
Nerja is on the seashore some 50 kilometres from Malaga on the N340 coastal highway, and marks the eastern tip of Malaga's Costa del Sol.
