Villa Merlin – Canillas de Albaida


A peaceful one bedroom apartment , which is part of a villa located in an area amongst stunning mountain scenery and seaviews.

The bright apartment  leads to the covered terrace where one can relax with a drink, taking in views of vineyards,olive and almond groves. Even the Rif mountains in Africa can be seen at dawn and dusk!

The goatherd passes now and again within metres of the villa -tending his flock.The wildboar are also seen in the evening amongst the oak trees. This is the real Spain! 

Our house is located at 3 km of the beautiful white village of Canillas de Albaida and at 50 m of the border of the national park Sierra Tejeda.Also nearby you have the villages of Salares and Competa, in Competa you can find shops, restaurants and tapa bars.

Long walks into the spectacular Park(100m away),will take you to the pretty, white villages dating back to the Moors , or up into the high mountains,beyond the treeline. Just as beautiful during the winter, as the summer.The track into the Park leads to La Moroma (6800ft).

Great for hiking, mountainbiking, horseriding or walks.

The nearest beaches of Torre de Mar, Torrox Costa and Nerja are at approx 35 minutes drive.

Excellent location for exploring Andalucia with its beautiful white villages, and towns such as Granada, Sevilla, Malaga, Cordoba and Antequera.

The Malaga airport is a 60

We recommend to hire a car as the house is in the countryside and the last 1km via country lanes.

Prima accomodatie,prachtig uitzicht en leuk zwembad.Lekker en gevariëerd ontbijt en mogelijkheid tot een lekkere lunch.Goed gelegen,mooie typische dorpjes in de buurt en de zee op aanvaardbare afstand(35 min.met de auto). Wij hebben hier een zalig rustige en sportieve vakantie gehad. Voor herhaling vatbaar.
