Spain holiday 










Villa Melizzo is a great location for a holiday- Accommodation consists of 2 bedrooms (1 double, 2 singles) bathroom, kitchen, lounge/diner with a fireplace for winter, TV and DVD. There is a sofa-bed to accommodate a further 2 people. AIR-CON/heating in both bedrooms and lounge


However for the majority of the year I am sure you will be spending most of your time enjoying the outdoor facilities- large private swimming pool with amazing mountain and lake views where you can relax using the sun loungers and chairs provided. The gardens are carefully maintained and a riot of colour. For your entertainment we have table football, darts and a rowing machine Just below the terrace of the villa-which has a large dining table and is shaded for al fresco dining, you will find a large bbq and bar area- with fridge for cold drinks! Wood is provided for the bbq, so all you need to do is provide the food and drink! The villa is at the end of a quiet track overlooking the village of Ardales and the near-by lakes, so there is no traffic whatsoever passing the villa. Just a short walk from the villa (5 minutes) is the wonderful village of Ardales- a typical Andalucian "pueblo blanco" .It is a lively, friendly village- not a lot of Spanish is spoken, but the people are so friendly and welcoming, that will not stand in your way! Great choice of bars and restaurants, mainly siyuated around the main plaza, which is abuzz on summer nights with people enjoying a meal or tapas under the orange trees. Prices are very reasonable- much cheaper than the coast) and some bar owners do special deals for our customers.

The village is steeped in history- from pre-historic times- amazing miles of caves with drawings-well worth a visit- through the Moorish era-- Ardales was a strategic defence point and has the remains of a castle- lit up at night from which there are amazing views. There is a cultural centree which hosts regular flamenco events and there is often a village feria going on--these people love to party!! Only 5 minutes drive takes youto the amazing turquoise lakes of Parque Ardales where you can swim, fish or hire pedaloes and canoes. Plenty of picnic tables provided- a great day out and finish off with a drink at one of the great bar/restaurants with great lake views.- Like a day at the beach but 10 times better!! If however, you wish to go to the beach- the Costa del Sol beaches are within 40 minutes drive- easy day out, but come back in the evening to the authentic Spain rather than the McDonalds and Irish bars and English breakfasts on offer at the beach. The main sites of Andalucia- Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Ronda, Malaga, Marbella and Gibraltar are all within 2 hours drive of Ardales- so if Culture is your thing, or want a break from relaxing at the pool, you could not find a better location There is a good bus service to Malaga and Ronda (both only 45minutes on the bus), but you are strongly advised to hire a car as there is so much to see off the beaten track.

To help, we can provide a 15% discount if booking a car with Helle Hollis- great service- no delay in picking up car, 24hr help and unused fuel is refunded.- We give you a promotion code when you pay your deposit. We live locally and are on hand if you need any help or advice during your stay. We can meet you with the keys up to 8pm at night and take you to the villa.
