Set in an elevated position in the Torrox countryside, La Higuera is a renovated cortijo decorated in typical Andalucian style, the cortijo offers breathtaking views across the countryside, down to the coast. A lovely covered barbecue area is to be found within the large enclosed gardens and provides the ideal relaxed setting for al fresco dining.
This was our second visit to La Higuera and hopefully it won't be the last!
The villa was exactly as we remembered it from our previous visit in 2015. Such a beautiful location overlooking the village, looking out to sea and keeping watch for the various birds that inhabit the locality.

Peace and quiet
Wonderful location, views and privacy as well as the quietness and peace of the place. The weather was well arranged too!! Back to work next week alas.

It was great, only about 10 minutes away from Torrox and supermarkets etc., also close to Nerja which is a wonderful place, and close to the sea. The peace and quiet where we were was great.

Absolutely brilliant villa overall,only minor issue-the beds were rather too hard.

Lovely villa, superb location
Mr Grewer, June 2012
Everything we wanted, peace quite and fantastic views with a loverly pool and garden area.
Mr Wood, August 2010
The photographs do not do this villa justice and some need updating. The panoramic view to the sea and the cooling breeze even on the hottest days together with the fully enclosed area all on one level make this a fantastic villa for family.
Mrs Forte, July 2010
The villa was lovely and in a location which was secluded but had superb views. The villa was in good condition and nicely furnished. The kitchen was well equipped, although it would have been nice to have a couple of dishwasher tablets and some washing-up liquid to start us off, since it is in a fairly remote location and not easy to pop out and get shopping ! We had a wonderful stay - the James Rep was extremely helpful and the caretaker and cleaner were also very friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great holiday !
Mr Cabral, May 2010
We wonder why this is not a 'Best of James' Villa? Maybe the combined kitchen/dining/lounge area is a bit too small for 6 people, but that is all we can think of in what is a truly outstanding villa.
Mr Renny, July 2009
This was our 8th James Villa holiday and we thought the garden and pool were fantastic, the villa itself was not as good as the others that we have stayed in - we're not surprised that La Higuera is no longer 'best of James'.

We had a fabulous holiday despite a few hiccups, like a dysfinctional shower, broken dish washer, and an onernight power cut! The response by the rep to these issues was immediate wiyh good results. Made even better with the news that we should have a meal courtesy of Jamesvillas due to the inconvenience we had. This gesture was well received and confirmed and excellent and professional service.

La Higuera was perfect for our family holiday. We all loved the pool, the beautiful garden and stunning views down to the sea. An absolutely idyllic Andalucian retreat. Directions to the villa were great (although we were grateful that we'd gone for an automatic). The directions put a lot of emphasis on setting the trachometer in your hire car - our company didn't allow us to do that and we found the villa without that. Overall, this is a beautiful villa in a stunning location.

This was our second visit to La Higuera and hopefully won't be our last. We love the location as it has both mountain and sea views and the outside living area is amazing. Our only slight criticism is that the sunbeds could do with replacing. The villa itself is perfectly adequate and well equipped. It is the outside space which sells it to us , so much so that it was an effort to leave the villa to explore the surrounding area. However, it is worth dragging yourself away to visit Torrox village which has very pretty square with numerous places to have a drink or something to eat. In addition, Nerja and Frigliana are well worth a visit and not to be missed.

Overall I enjoyed my stay at La Higuera! Its a simple villa with all the necessities you require. The pool is perfect and probably the best lit pool at night I have ever had. The outside furniture does let it down slightly and does need replacing. Be warned though the drive to the villa is very steep and not ideal if you are not a confident driver. The views though are worth it. I had a great 7 day stay and would consider returning!

Melton Mowbray Family with grown up
La Higuera was a wonderful villa. It was very clean and comfortable. It was very private, not over looked at all. It had nice view, lovely gardens, lots of space and super outside eating area. The only down sides were petty things like no washing up liquid, no spare toilet rolls and some very annoying dogs further down the valley which barked at night. Apart from that, a super villa and i would recommend it.

Family (with only pre-school children)
Beautiful villa in a stunning location - what a view! The outdoor space and grounds were fantastic, better than expected and better than the photos on the website, and the outdoor dining area was well equipped. The garden provided lots of shade and was huge! The villa itself could have been cleaner - our 11 month old kept pulling clods of dust out from under the coffee tables and sofas. This was disappointing as it would have been a very quick sweep before guests arrived. Our only other gripe was a distinct lack of cleaning tools or products - I'd have liked to have mopped the floor once during a two week stay but there was nothing provided to do this. Overall though, a fantastic place and perfect for our family holiday 😃

In a few words, the villa is amazing.
All of the family had a wonderful time and will definitely come back sooner rather than later.
