Property Details – La Majada Alta

La Majada Alta is a delightful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, stone built cottage with secluded, private swimming pool, which has been modernised and equipped to a high standard whilst retaining the charm of its rustic, 19th century origins.

This house can accommodate up to 7 guests with two double beds and 3 single beds.

The cottage is situated within a national park and stands in several thousand square metres of private grounds, in an exceptionally beautiful area of mountains and lakes.

Our private pool measures 8m x 4m,  1m at the shallow end and under 2m the other. There is a terrace with sun beds and mattresses and another shady drinks terrace with table and benches.

There is a south facing terrace off the sitting room, well prepared  with table and chairs and a gas BBQ for outdoor dining.

There is a third  terrace by the front door on the north side of the house which is cooler in the summer months.

La Majada Alta is ideal for those who like to unwind and enjoy a peaceful, restful, holiday. The sound of goat bells as the herds graze by day, and the deep chested call of the eagle-owl at sunset, or the sight of eagles drifting with the thermals overhead are certainly relaxing.

The cottage is also ideal for our more active guests with fantastic opportunities for walking, rock climbing, para gliding, horse riding and canoeing all available locally.

  • Thanks to Colin and Francesca Tastefully decorated cottage in a Spanish style. Enchanting scenic surroundings with exotic plants and animals. Excellent hiking opportunities. The owners have a professional understanding of developing and managing their excellent service concept. The perfect holiday environment to experience the vacation of a lifetime.

    Vacaciones Disfrutamos de una semana de vacaciones, en agosto, en esta propiedad. Mis hijos, nosotros y mis perros hemos estado de maravilla, la casa es estupenda, cuenta con todo lo necesario. El lugar es preciso y está muy cerca del Chorro, donde hay muchas opciones de ocio. La única desventaja para nosotros es el hecho de no estar vallado, no es recomendable en caso de viajar con perros, si estos tienden a correr aventuras por su cuenta :), ya que pueden acceder a la carrera. No obstante, después de todo, conseguimos que nuestros perros permanecieran en los alrededores y pudimos relajarnos.
    Repetiríamos sin duda alguna, la recomiendo al 100%.
    Gracias a su propietario por el maravilloso trato recibido y a los encargados del cuidado de la piscina y del jardín, por su estupendo trabajo y simpatía.
    Hasta pronto.

  • CARMEN - Semana de relajacion y desconexion. Extraordinaria Hemos estado una semana en esta casa y hemos disfrutado mucho. La casa esta totalmente equipada, por lo que no echas nada en falta. Esta Ordenada, con una decoracion muy acogedora y muy limpia, lo que hace que tu estancia sea muy agradable. En el patio se esta muy agusto duerante todo el día y por la noche es un placer tirarte en la tumbona y poder admirar las estrellas desde allí. La piscina es una delicia. Colin (propietario) lo tiene todo muy bonito con diferentes tipos de arboles y plantas, que le da un toque muy entrañable.Es una zona tranquila y al estar en lo alto de la sierra, sin otros alojamientos muy proximos, te da una privacidad que la hace especial. Tambien es especial observar a los buitres volar por los alrededores o recibir las visitas de las cabras montesas con la intencion de beber en la piscina. Todo fantastico.
    Colin es un encanto de persona, muy agradable y cercano. Nos ha atendido muy bien, y ha estado muy preocupado de que nuestra estancia fuera lo mejor posible. Gracias por todo Colin, tendremos que volver para hacer el caminito del Rey que no pudimos hacer y alguna otra ruta por la zona. Un abrazo fuerte y enhorabuena por la casa, es un bonito lugar para desconectar del ruido, de la ciudad y pasar unos dias en la naturaleza.
    Un saludo. Carmen

    Genial La casa es una maravilla, el entorno espectacular, con naturaleza casi salvaje (buitres, cabras montesas, etc.).
    Merece mucho la pena, y con ganas de volver.

A little bit of paradise in the mountains

“I usually don’t write reviews of my stays on HomeAway but was moved to make this my first.

Firstly a huge thanks to Colin. I have never before experienced correspondence as good as what we received before and during our stay. Although we didn’t require special assistance, the offer was there and I get the impression Colin would go to the ends of the earth for his guests.

Colin wasn’t in Spain but provided the numbers for two family members to contact to collect the keys.We were met by Jose in a nearby town and followed him up to the house. There were no restrictions on times and we arranged to meet up at 18:00, all we had to do was phone when we arrived and Jose was there in 5 minutes.

If you haven’t driven in the mountains outside Malaga get a car and do it. The roads are like pool tables with a good few near the house being newly tarmaced while we were there. The journey from Malaga is 40 miles of snaking twists, turns and hairpins through beautiful countryside culminating in a cheeky off road hill climb 😉 I’m itching to get back on a motorbike!!

When you get up to the cottage its just beautiful. Its looks small from the front but once you’re through the door the tardis effect kicks in.

The kitchen dining area is huge and very well equipped easily accommodating the 6 of us as we unpacked groceries and luggage.

The living area is also large and comfortably furnished..

All the bedrooms were a good size.

The main bathroom is ginormous and the shower comes at you like a fire hose. You get a massage while you shower, Perfect!!

There is full sky TV and wifi broadband as quick as what I have at home.

Inside the cottage is spotless.

The outside space at the rear is large with plenty of seating.

There is a gas and traditional BBQ which was perfect for the amount of food we were cooking.

A path and steps snake down from the patio to the pool area. The pool and surrounding patio is amazing with plenty of loungers. The pool was cleaned twice by very discrete maintenance men (we were only there 5 days).

I could turn this in to a 1000 word essay as there are so many positive things to say but will spare you.

We will definitely be back for another stay.

If you are looking around on HomeAway for somewhere to stay stop. You have already found it here.

Thanks again Colin.”

Excellent place in a superb location.

“We have just returned from a week stay here and already we can’t wait to return. I stayed here with my fiancee and 3 of our friends for a week of rock climbing in and around El Chorro, And i must say that this is a perfect location for all the nearby crags.

I would like to point out how excellent Colin and Francesca are as hosts, They couldn’t do enough to make our stay better (even though they weren’t in Spain). We were arriving on a Sunday afternoon when all the shops were closed so Colin offered to get everything we needed from the supermarket before we arrived so we could settle straight in, I have never known service like this and i have stayed in a lot of places.

We met Francesca’s sister Marie at the meeting point in the village and she lead us to the cottage…A very easy meeting place to find and the garage shop is handy.

The cottage itself is perfect from the excellent pool and terrace which was a god send after a full day out climbing to the log burning fires for the cooler nights.

One of my personal favourite things to do was watching the Vultures right above the house which nest on the crag just up from the grounds…these birds are beautiful and HUGE!!, there is also mountain goats in the area too which often pass by.

The night skies here are another thing of beauty too and for a photo enthusiast like myself i spent a lot of time outside on a night time.

I could go on and on about this place but i have to go to work now haha…..just book it and enjoy!!!

If you think it looks nice in the photos i can tell you the photos don’t do it justice.

Thanks guys”
