Situated in the pretty fishing town of Agua Amarga, this stunning four-bedroom house is the perfect villa for anyone who has dreamed of a relaxing and memorable holiday in the heart of Andalusia. Accommodating up to eight guests and bursting with fabulous modern amenities, this luxurious yet cosy property is part of an exclusive six-home complex, complete with a shared pool and gardens.

Casa Playanera's interior is spacious and open-plan, with light, fresh decor and sliding glass doors that allow in plenty of natural light. The comfortable lounge space offers guests the perfect place to chill out with family and friends, with sumptuous white sofas and a flatscreen TV for your entertainment. There's ample dining space at the rustic wooden dining table for up to eight guests - ideal for intimate indoor meals that can be rustled up in the villa's spacious and well-equipped kitchen. This gleaming space is complete with glossy white units and food-preparation surfaces, a central island with integrated hob and hood, and a host of other professional-grade appliances, including an oven and microwave, large fridge-freezer, coffee machine and dishwasher - as well as a range of cookware, crockery and utensils.

The ground floor of Casa Playanera also features a stylish and modern family bathroom, as well as a laundry space complete with a washing machine - ideal for those enjoying an extended stay or for anyone who wants to pack a little lighter for their trip and save some room in their luggage for those all-important souvenirs. On the first floor, you'll be greeted by the villa's stylish bedrooms, all decorated to a high standard and featuring the same fresh decor as the rest of the villa, with dazzling white walls and accents in natural, rustic shades. The main suite has a comfortable double bed and benefits from ensuite facilities, as well as providing guests access to a private terrace - a great spot for enjoying a quiet morning cuppa and taking in the incredible ocean views. There are two more equally elegant double rooms - one featuring an additional single bed, making it an ideal choice for couples staying with a child, and a twin room, great for older kids or teens. Guests staying in these rooms share a modern, family bathroom.

Casa Playanera has some fabulous outdoor spaces to enjoy, including a covered and fully-furnished outdoor lounge area, which is a wonderful space for enjoying pre-dinner drinks and conversation with friends. A barbecue and dining area means that you and your guests can partake in alfresco dining during your stay, and you'll find additional seating on the porch for relaxing and soaking up the sun. The six independent villas on this stunning complex share the use of a garden area and pool, which offers a fantastic opportunity to make new friends before heading back to your own private space and making the most of the incredible sunsets that the region is famous for.

Casa Playanera enjoys a privileged location in Agua Amarga, just metres from the beach and the town centre. Agua Amarga has been described as one of Andalucia's hidden seaside treasures, and with a small population of just 400 people, it largely remains untouched by large-scale tourism, making it an idyllic and peaceful place to stay. This pretty town has a delightfully laid-back atmosphere, with a beach that is ideal for families thanks to its sheltered location, calm waters and golden sands. There's no seafront promenade here, but visitors enjoy their time strolling along the beach, attending local yoga classes, and frequenting the bars and restaurants that line the beach. If you're after excellent Mediterranean cuisine, you'll find some great spots in the town serving up fresh, traditional food, including El Playa, which is famous for its freshly-caught-fish dishes, tapas bars and wineries, pizzerias, and the designer restaurant 'Oleaje', which offers everything from seafood Paella to grilled meats and vegetarian options.

There are some wonderful independent boutiques for those who want to hunt for unique souvenirs during their stay, including handmade jewellery and clothing. During the summer months and through to October, the beach scene is lively, and the trendy bars are buzzing, and for families, there are plenty of playgrounds to be found - including one right on the beach.

If you've had enough of laying on the beach and want to burn off some of those calorific treats, you'll find plenty of pretty and isolated coves to explore to the south (be sure to take plenty of water!), as well as the site of the mineral loading dock and the old coal store that the town is famous for. Further along, you'll discover the lighthouse that dates back to 1863 and the watchtower Torre de Mesa Roldan, which has been documented since 1497. Film and TV buffs might be interested to learn that the fort you can see here was used as a film location for Game of Thrones, and you can also see the villa featured in the Ben Kingsley film Sexy Beast.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Set within a safe, private complex of six villas, Casa Playanera is a great choice of accommodation for families with children. One of the double bedrooms features an additional single bed, which is ideal for those travelling with a very young child, and there is a twin room which is perfect for older kids. The villa has a welcoming, homely vibe which appeals to families, with plenty of space for dining together as a family both inside and out and shaded areas for keeping the little ones out of the sun during the hottest part of the day.

The kids will love making use of the pool during their stay, although it's worth noting that use of the pool is shared with guests in the neighbouring villas and that it is accessible via stainless steel ladders, which could make it more difficult for younger children to get in and out of the water with ease.

The villa's location in the town of Agua Amarga is perfect for families who want to enjoy a quiet and laid-back beach holiday while still being able to access amenities such as shops and restaurants. The kids will find plenty to see and do here, from building sandcastles on the golden sands and paddling in the clear, calm waters to enjoying one of the local playgrounds. Eating out as a family is made simple thanks to the wide array of restaurants in the area to suit all tastes and budgets. Adventurous young eaters will enjoy trying some of the local seafood dishes on offer, while you'll find plenty to tempt other palates with lots of places offering pizzas, pasta dishes and burgers.

There are lots of places along the coast to explore, and older kids will love the variety of watersports activities on offer, with scuba diving, snorkelling and kayaking being particularly popular pastimes here. If you're going to take a family walk to the nearby coves, we recommend packing good walking shoes and plenty of water, and it's worth noting that some of the longer routes will be unsuitable for younger children.

    Very nice, better than the photos! Comfortable beds, great water pressure in showers, gorgeous views. (especially from the shower!) Walking distance to shopping and dining. Can't wait to return.

    A very pleasant stay. The house is fantastic. All very well!

  • Highly recommended

    on 11/05/2023

    The house was very beautiful, the photos correspond to reality. Well equipped, swimming pool, garden, barbecue, etc... and Elena even got us a crib.
    Communication with Elena was easy and fast.
    5 minutes walk from the beach.
    Highly recommended

  • Very close to the beach

    on 19/09/2022

    We spent a fantastic family weekend (6 adults / 3 children) and both the house and the location were perfect. The house has precious energy and everything we need. Both big and small. It was very easy to relax as soon as we set foot there.
    The kitchen was very well equipped and spacious, so much so that in the end we ate more at home than we had initially planned.
    The rooms and beds were very comfortable including the pillows which was a pleasant surprise.
    The common spaces both inside (huge living room) and outside (terrace and pool area) are very pleasant, the views bring an immediate feeling of peace and relaxation. Beautiful sunsets from the upper terrace.
    The house is very close to the beach, just a pleasant 5-minute walk. You don't even need to take the car. We parked it the first day and only moved it to go buy supplies and continue enjoying the house and everything it offers.
    Without a doubt our favourite of all the accommodations we have been to.
    Elena was heavenly, great at both communication and availability, and super friendly, far exceeding any expectations. Thanks again!
    We can't wait to return!
