Description (written by the owner)

Romantic amazing views, pool, spa, roof terrace/patio/gardens, idylic relaxing/sight-seeing. Budget prices but high standards assured, officially inspected/registered Casa Rural.

Do you like sunshine, spectacular sunsets, magnificent mountain views? Peace and tranquillity only broken by birdsong, the tinkling of goat bells, and the hypnotic sounds of water tumbling over the waterfalls in the river below. A cooling dip in a pool? Lazing in a hammock in the shade of a palm tree? Luxuriating in a Jacuzzi whilst watching shooting stars at night? Sizzling steak cooked on your own BBQ, washed down with a glass of wine, or two? All this is yours at Hacienda del Sol!

We can offer you the following accommodation subject to availability.

Three studio garden apartments, each accommodates two persons, two of whom are adjacent to each other, all on level ground! A two bed roomed (double and twin), garden apartment accessed by 4 steps. They have all been recently built to a high modern standard whilst maintaining a typical Andalucian style.

Our lovely new secluded hideaway nestles in the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda (mountain range), in the heart of Axarqia, a unique region east of Malaga, bordered by mountains, lakes and the glorious beaches of the Mediterranean Sea.. An unspoilt area of Andalucia, full of contrasts and delights to discover and explore. In winter snow-capped mountain ranges, are reflected in the aquamarine waters of Lake Vinuela, before they sweep down to the beaches and towns of the Costa del Sol, just 25 mins drive away.

With 320 days of sunshine a year, there’s plenty to do whatever the season!

Here at Hacienda del Sol, where I live too, I have many years of experience of hospitality and tourism. It is important for me that guests are able to experience and explore the many and varied aspects, historical, cultural, geological and fun that this unique and beautiful part of Andalucia offers. I have all the tourism information so you can relax and plan your holidays here. For those who just want a peaceful romantic break, their privacy is respected. Allowing you to have a hassle free happy holiday

Enjoy a tapas, sample the local wine whilst strolling through the typical Andalucian white villages precariously perched on mountaintops and hillsides, one of the many legacies left by the Moors. See the prehistoric remains in the amazing caves near Nerja. Visit the hot springs at Alhama de Granada. Try horse riding around Lake Vinuela.

Day visits to the historic cities of, Sevilla, Cordoba, Málaga Gibraltar and Granada with the famous Alhambra Palace. Antequera and nearby El Torcal with its indredible, unique rock formations. In winter go skiing or tobogganing at Sierra Nevada, near Granada, just 2 hours away.

Join in the fun at one of the many fiestas held in all the villages and towns throughout the year. Or simply marvel at the stunning sunsets and incredible vistas, of the hills and valleys surrounding us!

An ideal base for…

Sight seeing or property hunting…

A painters paradise - Ramblers delight…..

Superb mountain bike terrain...

Or to simply relax, unwind, and let the cares float away, here or on the beach……..

Heaven on Earth

You may say Hacienda del Sol is a bit off the road but once you get there you will experience a little heaven on earth. On the other hand your in the middle of the most beautiful areas between Malaga and Nerja. This place really is "Value for money"!
Owner comment
So pleased you enjoyed our "peace bubble" just 400 metres off the Rubite road. You certainly did a lot of cycling, but what a wonderful way to really appreciate the incredible beauty here. Look forward to when you come again.

Superb stay with fabulous mountain views

Nice room with all we needed. Sunny terrace and fantastic scenery. Close enough with car to stores for shoping in Vélez-Malaga and Torre del Mar but completely secluded. A good spot to have as base for exploring the area. We stayed three weeks as Sues guests and she was very helpful in every way and had lots of information about what can be done in the area. We can absolutelly recommend to come to Hacienda del Sol!
Owner comment
Hi Susanna. Hope you had a good meal at that superb fish restaurant in Torre del Mar on your way to the airport. it's still lovely and sunny here. Expect it was a bit of a shock when you got back to Sweden with freezing temperatures. Brrrr. Don't forget if you need to relax and chill out you know where to come, would be lovely to see you both again. Hope you had a good belated Xmas with your family. Love to Peter. Sue x.

A Little Piece of Heaven On Earth

The Drive up to the Villa is amazing in itself! The views are stunning!The Villa is superb and the grounds well kept, but the location is outstanding and the views are breath taking, You are far from the madding crowds yet 20 minutes from the hussle and bussle of Torre Del Mar and the beach. The apartment we stayed in was Torre, Which was lovely, Very clean, Nice bed, air-con, excellent fridge, English tele channels (if you need it?)and a nice clean bathroom with excellent shower, it has its own BBQ and roof terrace. The pool is always clean and the jacuzzi was just the job at the end of the day. Sue,the owner cannot be more helpful, nothing was too much bother she recommend local restraunts and some fabulous drives out (also does a fabulous BBQ evening). We had a brilliant holiday and would certainly recomend it to anyone.
Owner comment
It was a real pleasure seeing you both relax and enjoy yourselves in my "peace bubble" here at Hacienda del Sol. And I loved the Michael Bubble, (is that how you spell it?) Cds you played when you were in the jacuzzi, and when you sang along with them Alistair! You've got a good voice! Am glad you liked the drives, but there are so many places you never got to see, so am hoping you'll be back when it's a wee bit cooler so you can go sight-seeing. Sue x.

Hacienda del Sol - perfect for relaxing and also a few adventures

Hacienda del Sol is a beautiful place to stay, set amidst absolutely stunning scenery. I spent many a happy day simply relaxing in a hammock in the garden, gazing at the mountains and reading a good book. For me, pure bliss! Originally I had booked a 9 day stay (in May 2012), but I enjoyed it so much and there was so much more to do than I had imagined, that I stayed for another 7. Every other day or so I went on an adventure in the area: one day I went to the scenic town of Nerja (about 35 minutes away by car) where I enjoyed shopping by day and an evening of Flamenco dancing. I frequently visited the local village of Vinuela for a delicious tapas (at an incredibly cheap price). I also did an excursion to Gibralta - thank you Doug for organising it for me. I had several 'activity days'. One day I hired a mountain bike from Sue and Doug and had a very exciting ride - and thank you Sue for picking me up near the end of it when I was getting rather tired. I also did a fabulous walk from Hacienda del Sol that Sue had carefully mapped out for guests like me. I even went horse riding one afternoon. I can highly recommend Hacienda del Sol for anyone who is looking for a bit of peace and tranquility. And if you want to get out and about there is lots to do in the surrounding area - just ask Sue and Doug, they can give you tips on all the best places to go and things to do.
Owner comment
We are always so pleased when our guests have enjoyed their time with us here at Hacienda del Sol. People are always surprised at how much there is to see and do here, and often come back again and again. Look forward Sally to when you are able to come back.

Far from the madding crowd...

Situated in the Analucian countryside, the aptly-named Hacienda del Sol is a haven of sunshine, peace and tranquility. You can do as much or as little as you like, and the friendly hosts Doug & Sue really help you feel at home. Some days you're unwilling to leave the beautiful surroundings so you top-up your tan on your rooftop balcony, or chill-out reading a book in the garden or by the pool. Other days you're off on a riverside walk past olive, almond & orange trees, or on a bike ride to hillside villages for cerveza and tapas, or you drive down to the coast or to the lake, or higher into the hills. You return for a dip in the pool to cool off, followed by a glass or two of some local wine and some stunning sunset views from the rooftop balcony. Then it's into the jacuzzi for some stargazing on another warm, clear night before some more well-earned sleep. Every day was bliss, just like a holiday should be.
Owner comment

A HIDDEN GEM!

We had never been to Spain before. We didn't fancy the tourist meccas and wanted something off the beaten track. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. The owner Sue, met us on the main road and guided us up to the Hacienda- not sure we would have found it the first time on our own!The site itself is really secure- great for small children, as its fenced all round. We spent plenty of time walking in the nearby hills and swimming in the pool. We loved the jacuzzi- the view of the stars at night was amazing. The owners were extremely accommodating and couldn't have been more helpful. The accommodation was fab for families- not so posh that you were worried about the children breaking everything but nice enough to make you feel you were somewhere special. The roof terraces were a real sun trap- great place for a glass of wine and to hide from the children!!! Would highly recommend visit- we booked again when we got home.
Owner comment
Really looking forward to your next visit to Hacienda del Sol. What a lovely family and thank you for your comments.

The Best Holiday We have Ever Had !!!!!!!!

from start to finish, I can truly say this was our best holiday ever, The apartment was first class, (better than some 5 star hotels), The view was breathtaking, and the hospitality could not faulted, We were treated as part of the family, and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. If you are looking for a first class holiday, and to be treated as guest not a pain, you really need to book your holiday here. If I could more that 5 stars I would.
Owner comment
Maybe a bit of an exageration re the 5 stars, but am so pleased you enjoyed your holiday here at Hacienda del Sol. Sue.
