Interesting house in the high hills
This house is located within a few K of several other villages, the closest being Canillas de Albaida and Competa. Both are interesting to visit, and have several restaurants and small grocery stores, that have an amazing variety of goods. It is relatively easy to get down to the coast where there are many fish restaurants.
The area is lovely to explore but the roads are narrow and very winding. Just take it slow and enjoy the views.
The house also has a nice view, overlooking the tiny town of Archez and up to Canillas. We saw one beautiful full moon rise over the opposing hills.
Nice place and the owner, Margaret, is wonderful to communicate with.
Peaceful and tranquil.
The property was very good with excellent facilities. There was secure parking for the car. Lovely patio and garden area with orange and lemon trees. The internet and uk tv worked very well and was much appreciated.
Margaret was very helpful by email also Jenny and Carl who manage the property was very nice and looked after us very well. The only problem we had was the climb from the village to the property it has been named “heart attack hill” now we are walkers but because we are nearer80 than 70 we decided we could only manage it once a day. The Avenida bar in the village is very nice for coffee, beer and light meals and El Curro and meson mudejar are very nice restaurants. We had a really nice 8 weeks at the property and had a lovely chill out and relaxing time. There was comfortable outdoor seating as well as lovely seating in the property.
It was a real pleasure to have you both staying in our house. We were pleased that you had such amazing weather for your long stay and I am sure that our other guests will benefit from all of the great information that you have written in our visitors book. I am glad that you enjoyed our outdoor and indoor furnishings as we have tried to provide quality seating, loungers etc to ensure a comfortable holiday.
Although Brian and I usually walk up the steep hill from the village, there is a gentler route to our house which I have written in our visitors book. It is 5 minutes longer but much kinder to your calf muscles. We sometimes walk that way as there is often lovely wild lavender and poppies growing at the side of the road.
La Casa de Flores, ein bezauberndes Haus im andalusischen Bergland
Es handelt sich bei dem Ferienhaus in Archez um ein bezauberndes Plätzchen. Natürlich benötigt man dort ein Auto. Man kann sich in der behaglichen Wohnung und dem schönen blumigen Garten erholen und sonnen, in der Umgebung und den anliegenden weißen Dörfern romantische Spaziergänge unternehmen und, wer es mag, in den Bergen anstrengendere Wanderungen. Und dann natürlich: Granada, Cordoba, Malaga, Gibralta usw. Maragaret "spricht zwar nur Englisch und kein Deutsch", ist aber wirklich lieb und sehr hilfsbereit. Wir waren im November da und es war es sehr sehr schön. Wir würden sehr gern im Sommer wiederkehren, schon deshalb, um dann auch den Pool ausprobieren zu können.
It was lovely to have you and your sons as our first German guests. Thank you for your lovely review and for your kind comments about our house and about me! Archez is indeed a beautiful village and I am delighted that you and your family had a good holiday and enjoyed sunny days in our garden and some good mountain walks. You are more than welcome to return in the summer when you can also enjoy the pool and the different flowers in the garden.
A Special Villa in a Wonderful Setting.
We have just returned from two weeks at La Casa de Flores. As previous guests have commented on, Margaret the owner was a pleasure to deal with and couldn’t have been more helpful. Everything was extremely well organised from start to finish.
The villa itself was exactly as described, and was in fact even better than expected. It has everything you would require, and was spotlessly clean. The outside area is surprisingly large, with many fruits and lovely plants and flowers. Again the pool was spotless, and very welcoming in the July heat!
The views from the villa looking down on Archez are terrific, Archez itself is a quaint and friendly place. A terrific place to have a drink or meal or as a base for visiting other villages etc in the area. We had a soft spot for Bar Avenida, just five minutes walk and enjoyed the vegan restaurant of Meson Mudejar. Great even for non veggies.
If it’s a quiet relaxing holiday you are looking for, this is the place!
We look forward to returning.😀�
Grant and Karen.
Dear Grant, thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you both staying in our house and you are more than welcome to return in the future. I am glad that you found Árchez to be a friendly village, the local people are lovely and have been wonderful neighbours for us. The Bar Avenida is the heart of the village and we love it too. We have not tried the vegan restaurant yet as it was just preparing to open when we were last there in June but it is receiving very good reviews from our visitors even though they are predominately meat eaters. I am glad that you found our house and pool to be very clean, we have great property managers who deliver high standards, I will let them know that you were impressed by their work😊.
Fantastic villa in quiet location
Ideal location for a totally relaxing holiday. Fantastic pool and wonderful views from the seating areas. Nice sized bedrooms and bathroom. Fully equipped kitchen and comfy sofas.
We spent most of our time at the villa with a couple of days out in nearby Nerja and Cómpeta. The walk into the village is a short stroll down the hill and the 3 open bars/ restaurants are within 5 minutes walk. There is a 4th restaurant on the hill leading out to Canillas but you need to check that it is open before setting off.
The newly open vegan restaurant Meson Mudejar is highly recommended (we are not vegans but the food tastes exceptional and a must is the chickpea curry and the cheesecake!! ). If you prefer meat then go to the Venta el Curro at the bottom of the hill.
Really good communication with the owners at all times.
Thank you for leavingI us such a lovely review, it was a pleasure
to have you stay at our house and you are more than welcome to return.
The location of the house makes it easy to get out and about on foot which was a deciding factor for us when we’re thinking of buying it. The local restaurants and bars are great. I think you were amongst the very first guests in the new vegan restaurant . It was just about to open when we had to return to Scotland, but early reports, including yours, are that the food is amazing. I am glad that you both had such a great holiday and I hope that you will visit again in the future
Clean and Comfortable in a Great Location
This villa was recommended to us by friends who stay here every year. We found it to be very clean and the garden is beautiful, the scent of jasmine and honeysuckle is amazing and the views from the terrace are amazing. The village is a few minutes walk from the villa and there are a few well stocked shops and well priced restaurants and bar. We hired a car for 4 days and visited a few places recommended by the owners, including Granada. The owners have great local knowledge as does the chap who came to clean the pool. Inside the villa is a real home from home with really comfortable furniture and everything that you need for a good holiday. We have already booked to return next year.
Thank you for your lovely review and also for booking again for next year. It was pleasure to have you in our house. I am glad that you found our villa to be clean and well presented, we have great property managers and I will pass your comments to them. John, our gardener, does a great job of keeping the garden beautiful! it is great that you made good use of the local restaurants and bars and found the local people to be friendly, we really do miss them when we are not in Spain. I know that you enjoyed your day trips to Torre del Mar and Granada and we have some more suggestions for you for next year.
