A spacious and debonair property located close to the stunning sights of Malaga, Villa Sayalonga is an ideal property for large groups who are desperately seeking an elevated sense of luxury within the Andalucian hills. As you approach the exterior of this property, you will be taken aback by the varied assortment of trees that work to accentuate this landscape and the stunning views on offer. This property is also home to a considerable swimming pool that is filled to the brim with refreshingly cool water. As such, guests can use this facility to its fullest potential at any time during their stay and stay cool under the Spanish sun. Guests can also revel in a stunning selection of outdoor terraces, with seating and dining options, giving them the space to appreciate the true beauty of this property from a collection of unique viewpoints.
Inside, this villa collates a bustling wealth of ornate pieces which help to build a deeply characteristic holiday home. The living area presents a range of exposed brick accent walls, creating a sense of comfort and cosiness as soon as you walk through the front door. Guests can snuggle up on the artisan sofa as they reminisce about their favourite elements of the trip so far. Moving over to the dining table, this space adheres to a much lighter theme, making good use of an enchanting white table and matching chairs next to the well-equipped kitchen. The communal and traditional nature of this arrangement makes it the perfect place for guests to enjoy their daily meals together as a group. The kitchen also follows a similar theme, providing guests with an incredibly bright and airy space that they can use as they please.

The ground floor is also home to all of the bedrooms in the main house. The main bedroom is a premium space that has been fitted with a large double bed and an en-suite bathroom and has direct access to the pool area. Guests can literally roll out of bed and into the pool! The second and third bedrooms both contain a pair of single beds, one separate and one joined.

For those who'd like a bit of privacy but would still like to be part of the fun, you're in luck! Villa Sayalonga also has a small but mighty guest house on the property. This guest house contains an open-plan space with a double bed, a kitchen area, an en-suite shower, and access to a balcony.

Villa Sayalonga is located practically between the two towns of Sayalonga and Algarrobo, near Malaga. Both are typically Spanish towns, with their narrow winding roads and white-washed walls, but surrounded by gorgeous rolling hills and enjoying plenty of sunshine. If you're visiting in Spring, be sure to head to Sayalonga for the annual Festival of Nisperos (a type of local fruit), which celebrates the rich agricultural industry of this region with festivities, food, music, and activities. Algarrobo is similar, with festivals such as Feria, which fills the town with live music and passionate flamenco dancers during August. Algarrobo is also known for its delicious cakes called Tortas de Algarrobo. Make sure to grab a few of these sweet treats to take back home with you! Both towns are part of the popular 'Route of Sun and Wine', which is a suggested route for visitors to the region wanting to enjoy the Spanish sun and indulge in a glass or two of some local vino.

Malaga is a deeply vibrant and intoxicating region that can be found around an hour away from Villa Sayalonga. This area is teeming with incredibly fascinating historical landmarks such as El Torcal de Antequera, a UNESCO World Heritage site that is bound to impress even the most experienced of travellers. This expansive parkland is teeming with walking trails, giving guests the prime opportunity to bask in a plethora of beautiful natural elements. If you are looking for a much more thrilling experience, you must travel along the Caminito del Rey. This is an impeccable aerial pathway that travels along the walls of a monumental gorge. Thus, this is an ideal attraction to visit if you are looking to observe everything this vivacious region has to offer from a wealth of awe-inspiring perspectives. El Torcal de Antequera can be found around 90 minutes away from the villa.
If you're driving that way, why not stop off in Malaga? Another popular tourist attraction is the Alcazaba of Malaga, an 11th-century fortress that is based just 45 minutes away from Villa Sayalonga. This landmark boasts a very significant and rich history since it was once home to a wealth of acclaimed Moorish royals as well as an array of Catholic monarchs such as King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. Guests must explore every aspect of this tremendous monument and deepen their knowledge of Malaga's rich royal history. Once you have explored the interior of this fortress, you are free to take a close look at the outdoor grounds. Here, you will be inundated by a variety of zesty citrus trees and impeccable vines. Guests should also use their time at this attraction to revel in the remarkable panoramic views that surround them.

  • Stunning mountain retreat

    on 21/09/2023

    This really is a beautiful villa perched high in the mountains of southern Spain. Tasteful decor, good sized rooms and plenty of outside seating all make for a relaxing stay for 8 of us. There is great attention to detail with a well equipped kitchen, a good selection of store cupboard essentials , fly screens throughout, shutters, aircon etc. The good sized pool looks out onto the most breathtaking views. Mirjam the caretaker is superb, and we enjoyed a couple of nights out in Sayalonga plus a fabulous wine tasting and lunch at Bodega Bentomiz- would thoroughly recommend.

  • What a top location!

    on 30/03/2023

    Stayed here for 12 days last fall. In one sentence: what a top location. Great surroundings, top climate and a beautiful location. Were here with a group of several couples, so the guesthouse was absolutely great. Saltwater swimming pool more than fantastic, fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning in almost all rooms, terrace very attractively decorated and equipped with several seating areas. The view is great. Contact with the landlords was very pleasant, beautiful walking routes were definitely available. All questions were answered quickly. Location halfway to the mountain top, privacy if you want it, but if you want to visit the villages and conviviality, you can get there in no time. Everything has been thought of in terms of sustainability, our own herb garden, solar panels and the environment have been taken into account, in short, an absolute recommendation and we will definitely book here again.

  • Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet

    on 21/01/2023

    Fully equipped, including a fireplace and a lovely lounge sofa.

    The fantastic sea view can also be seen from it
    the swimming pool where the sun shines all day long.

    From the kitchen you can easily bring out all the goodies through the large French doors and windows.

    This place is highly recommended for those looking for peace and comfort.

    We were very satisfied, highly recommended and will definitely come back.
