Huge well-equipped kitchen diner with all modcons including range-style cooker, chrome fridge freezer, microwave and dishwasher. 2 bathrooms, both with shower, bidet and WC, one with bath. The accommodation is spacious, stylishly decorated in traditional Andalusian style and comfortably furnished. Little extras we provide include Egyptian cotton towels and designer bed linen, a welcome pack with our own local olive oil and specially bottled wine, and a house book with maps and local information. Free Wifi for all guests. POOL The pool is really large - 10 by 5 metres - big enough for proper swimming or for a large group to splash about in, and deep enough for diving. There are sunbeds and a cane shaded canopy, and fantastic views from the poolside 'mirador' (viewing terrace). GARDENS & TERRACES There are acres of space outside, including your own private olive groves to explore, huge oak trees to laze under, beautiful sunny gardens, bougainvillea and jasmine and vine shaded terraces. There is an outdoor kitchen with barbecue and dining area for eating alfresco and dining under the stars. LOCATION Secluded and tranquil, Villa Amapola is the perfect place to relax and get away from it all, an ideal retreat for outdoor pursuits like horse riding, bird watching and hill walking, and within easy access of the local village of Periana, local tapas bars and some excellent restaurants. The beaches of the Costa del Sol, with water sports, ice cream parlours and some fabulous seafood restaurants are only a 20 minute drive. It's an hour to sightseeing at Granada's Alhambra Palace and the shopping, museums and galleries of Malaga's historic centre. Recommended outings and expeditions include touring the white hilltop villages of the Axarquia, a visit to El Torcal national park, or a day trip to Cordoba, Ronda or Seville. We can advise on trips, restaurants and activities and are happy to help with reservations for the Alhambra Palace. Just ask us for details – we are happy to help!

About the neighbourhood
La Amapola is located 4kms form the pleasant market village of Periana, with shops, tapas bars and some excellent restaurants. There are a number of nearby pretty hilltop bars and a fabulous Lakeside venue for romantic dinners or family get togethers. The nearest towns are Velez-Malaga and Torre del Mar on the Costa del Sol, about 20 minutes drive. Torre del Mar is a typical Spanish beach resort, with a pretty pal dotted promenade, ice cream parlours, water sports, and lots of shops and restaurants. Velez-Malaga is a bustling market town which dates back to Phoenician times. Sites of historic interest include the Palacio del Marqués de Beniel (1610–1616), the Church of Santa María la Mayor (1487) and the Convent of the Carmelites (1699), in Baroque style with a Renaissance portal.
Getting around
Car hire is essential as this is a country villa. However, there are lots of country walks and cycling and horse riding routes close by, for those who would like to explore the area in a slightly more adventurous way!
