Great villa with beautiful views
By Phil S. on 23-Aug-2019
Villa Joanna is a lovely, clean villa with spectacular views. We have stayed in many villas before but none with views like this one as it looks over the mountains, Torrox and the sea.
Communication with Jane and Garry was excellent as it was with Steve and Dian when needed who look after the villa in Spain. Steve met us on time to take us up to the villa on the first day and show us around.
The villa is very well equipped and clean and the welcome pack was very useful.
The only downside is the track to the villa which is very much an off road journey as it is very rough in places. It did not bother me too much after a couple of journeys but may bother a timid driver. If you heed what Garry and Jane say and get a car with a good ground clearance then it would be better.
Overall, though, the views were well worth it.
Fabulous Villa (July 20th 2019)
By Sam E. on 19-Aug-2019
As a party of 6 (4 adults and two children) we had a great week staying in this well equipped villa with panoramic views. We found the villa very comfortable and spacious with everything you need. We all loved the pool area especially the views you had over the beautiful Torrox village, the mountains and sea.
Communication with the owners was excellent. We hope to be back.

Beautiful villa with outstanding views! From the minute we walked in, it felt like home. The outside space and pool were great and many hours were spent there enjoying the views and wonderful weather. Plenty to do in the surrounding areas and the local village is a must visit.
Overall we left wishing we were staying longer, The owners were really great and communication was good. The local hosts (Steve and Dian) were lovely and happy to answer any questions.
Would we come back? We would be back there in a heartbeat.
Fantastic return visit
By Matt Cavanagh on 15-Sep-2017
This is the second time we have stayed at Casa Joanna and we loved every second yet again.
We have stayed in various villas in Torrox over the past 10 years but this one is definitely the best for us in our opinion.
We love the layout and the spacious feel around the villa and the pool.
The villa is totally secluded and not overlooked at all and the views are amazing.
The little things that also separate this villa from the others for us are the good, constant wifi connection and the large American fridge freezer with ice maker.
We will definitely be returning again next year
Peace & quiet & views!

Lovely well equipped & maintained villa, a real home from home & better than your average rental property. It's 10 mins up a bit of a rough track but the views once you get there are sensational looking over picturesque Torrox and down to the coast !! We were met and taken up to the villa by Steve who was happy to answer any questions and told us when he would be round to check the pool. Not the villa if you like to be at the centre of the action but if you are looking for a peaceful relaxing break look no further. A refreshing pool with a large level area around it with sunbeds and a good large brolly, a very welcome covered patio for breakfast and lunch and plenty of parking space. The house is very well equipped - plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, comfortable beds, spacious comfortable lounge with sofas, a good tv and music centre, everything you need in the kitchen. Some nice places to eat and drink down in the village especially in the pretty square with lots of umbrellas hanging to great effect. Very close to good road networks so easy to go exploring - we went to Granada on a cloudy day to visit the Alhambra and the coast is only 10 mins from Torrox. Good Wi-Fi and mobile phone coverage. We were only there for a week and came back wishing it had been longer!
Great property - perfect for a family of six, definitely need a car!
By Gareth I. on 31-Aug-2017
Overall a very positive stay. The house is well maintained, spacious and has a lovely pool and outlook over Torrox, the hills and the sea. The house has air conditioning in the lounge and one bedroom which helps on a hot evening. The house has everything we needed - dishwasher, wifi, DVD, UK tv, washing machine, fridge and freezer and worked perfectly. We used the house to relax and enjoy the pool but also had some good day trips. Granada, the Caves of Neja and Frigilano are all good places to visit. Aquavelis is a great day out with the kids. The couple who look after the property are extremely helpful. Local Mercado in Torrox Costa was a good supermarket to use and there are local shops and a bakery in Torrox itself. The house is accessed by a steep mountain road which is unsurfaced in places - its fine once you've done it once but you definitely need to hire a car. We flew into Almeria on Iberia flights from Heathrow via Madrid which worked well. We would definitely recommend it for a relaxing week or two!
Relaxing family holiday in a superb villa.
By Mrs Julia Ashmore on 21-Aug-2017
This was our 2nd time staying in the villa, the 1st being 2 years ago. We have been coming to this area of Spain for about 8 years, and this villa is a fabulous find. The track is rough towards the end but absolutely fine. It was so lovely going back to somewhere we knew. You never tire of the stunning views once at the back of the property.
You overlook lovely Torrox Pueblo with the sea in the distance, and to the right are the mountains - gorgeous!!
Lots of lovely meals/tapas had in Torrox and in nearby Competa ( in particular Restaurant El Pilon) and the beaches visited at Torrox Costa and Burriana in Nerja.
The villa is just home from home, very well equipped but with added sun and a pool !!!
Great communications from the owners throughout the whole booking process.
I would definitely recommend this villa for a fabulous, relaxing family holiday. We will be returning again, I am sure!
What more can I say!!
Fantastic spacious peaceful villa
By Matt Cavanagh on 01-Nov-2016
We have been staying in different villas around Torrox for the last 10 years and I can honestly say this was my favourite.
Very clean and very spacious I loved the layout.
The pool is fenced off with gates that can be locked to stop toddlers wandering too close if needed.
There is a winding track to the villa but this is worth every step when you see the stunning views.
We were met by a Freind of the owner of the villa just off the motorway and he lead us up to the villa which completely took the stress out of finding it.
He also sorted any problems we had out which was only one small thing but he was out to help within the hour.
We will definitely be returning soon.
Relaxing, peaceful Villa.
By Mrs Julia Ashmore on 14-Oct-2015
We arrived for a family holiday, with two teenagers and a 12 year old for a 15 night stay. Wonderful villa, stunning scenery which you only appreciate once at the back of the property. You look down over the lovely village of Torrox, to the right you have the stunning mountains and in the short distance ahead , the coast. There is a good size pool with gradual step entry with lights you can use for night swimming - lovely ! The villa was clean and well maintained. All of our meals were eaten under the veranda, which was lovely. There is a BBQ but you cannot use in July or August due to fire risks (which we found out upon arrival) but after speaking to the owner when we arrived (as our holiday covered the latter end of August and beginning of Sept), he said that with due care and attention using charcoal not paper, we were allowed to use. There is Wifi in the villa, which is invaluable with teenagers! The villa is home from home with the added benefits of the sun!! The lovely villages of Frigiliana and Competa are very picturesque and worth a visit. Nerja is a larger town further down the coast which is lovely too, with a wider range of watersports. Torrox Costa is the nearest beach, this also has pedaloes for hire. To be honest, the road/track leading to the villa was a little worse than we expected but having seen it the following morning in daylight and having driven a couple of times, it was fine. Great communications with the owners, both before and during our holiday. You are met by the Meet and Greet agents, who are were friendly. All in all, a fabulous holiday for my family and we would love to return to the villa one day. We would recommend for a relaxing, peaceful holiday.
well kept expionlally clean
By Josephine A. on 07-Sep-2015
Fabulous villa with great views quite and secluded.
the villa is well equipped with all modern facilities .Satellite/Sky TV with English programmes. Air con for those very hot nights.
The pool was amazing , really lovely at night with the pool lights on.
The owners were very helpful and made arrangements for us to be met and taken to the villa.
A car is essential although
We found the single lane dirt track up to and from the villa was very difficult and at times and very scary.
