La Huerta del Angel

Near Malaga, Andalucia


Idyllic Spanish holiday villa

Close to the beaches of the costa del sol, but a world away, surrounded by olive and avocado groves, is this historic and stunning rustic Spanish villa with private pool. Stylish and spacious with plenty of space inside and out this makes for a retreat from the world without being remote.

The Location

Up in the hills above the crystal clear Med, on the edge of the charming white washed village of Macharaviaya, La Huerta del Angel sits in a sea of rolling green groves. You’ve privacy here, but you can also walk up to the village with its traditional restaurant in less than 5 minutes or jump in the car and be on the beach in 15.

Heading further you’ve towns like Nerja and Velez Malaga to explore as well as the fascinating cultural hub of Malaga city itself. But do too much exploring and you’re missing the point of a stay here. Once you’ve driven up the bumpy drive, unpacked and you’re sat with a vino on the terrace, you might not go anywhere.

The airport in Malaga is a 40 minute drive so taking a taxi if you really want to escape is an easy option as is hiring car for more flexibility.

Stef and Irja have a cosmopolitan European background but have chosen to make Malaga their home. They love sharing La Huerta del Angel with guests, but it’s very much their family holiday home too, which is reflected in the attention to detail throughout this beautiful Spanish house.
