Almunecar, Province of Granada, Andalucia
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. Quiet, peaceful and totally private this is the 'stuff of dreams', the 'real Spain' where the sound of goats' bells still tinkle over the hills. Our villa really feels like a 'home' rather than a rental property and that's because it is one!

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 restaurant...

Interaction with guests
We have a full time manager who lives close by with his wife and two young children. He will meet you in Almunecar at the start of your holidays and guide you up the hill to settle you in. He is on call to assist you and will keep a check on the pool and terraces during your stay (when it is convenient for you). He is a font of knowledge regarding the local area and will gladly recommend restaurants, beaches or outings should you wish to know.

Flights and car hire are found easily on line. Our villa is situated in the lush tropical mountains of Los Banuelos - just 9km from the coast. Malaga airport is the closest and the drive to Almuncar is pretty easy, around 45 minutes, and mostly motorway. Exit the motorway at La Herradura and continue on the N340 to Almuñecar Town where our Manager, Rene, will meet you. The next 20 minute journey to the villa is along a narrow, long and twisting road with sheer drop offs. (4 x 4 not necessary). Be ready for an exciting adventure and discover the real Spanish countryside!
