“Perfect for relaxing and mixing with friendly locals”
Reviewed 23 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Stayed in Casa Beni for 2 weeks at the end of June 2012. Near perfect holiday. The villa is a real delight – it’s all the small touches that make it feel less like a rental and more like the home of a close friend. It’s clearly been decorated with care and taste so the kitchen comes with every fathomable cooking implement and the cupboards are stocked with locally written walking guides, good novels and more games than you can shake a stick at. The outside is just as comfortable - great pool - with a basketball hoop and table tennis for those with a more active approach to lazing about the villa. But best of all is the view, on a clear day from the enormous main terrace you can see across the mountain range to the north African coast. Many an hour was spent taking it in – complemented magnificently by glasses of cold fino and platefuls of big plump olives.
The villa can easily accommodate 6 people (3 double bedrooms). I decided to have a few days on my own first before a gang of friends arrived, this meant I had a chance to chill out and meet the locals in the village before my noisy lot descended. One of the best things about this villa is that even though it has beautiful unobstructed views (and is secluded enough to do bikini bottom only sunbathing for those with a penchant for that kind of thing) it is only 5 or 6 minute walk into the centre of the village. However a word of warning that walk involves a near 45 degree angle hill – fine for those firm of foot -but an interesting experience in a car laden with friends and bags - good clutch control is essential! I though Canillas de Aceituno was great – a village with a heart and sense of purpose (you’ll note there are actual youngish people here with children and some have jobs that don’t involve tourism – something unusual in other white pueblos in the slightly more touristy areas). It is good if you can speak a bit of Spanish – mine is poor but I gave it a go. There are two or three good restaurants, we spent most of our nights in a bar/restaurant called La Sociedad, and quite a few small shops some of which seem to have slightly bizarre product specialisations (fish and shoes for example…).
It’s rare that I would ever consider going back to the same place twice but I can honestly say Casa Beni and Canillas de Aceituno might just change that habit.

Thank you so much for your lovely review of Casa Beni and I am so glad that you were happy there. If I could speak in Dutch I would try and write in Dutch but I am afraid I don't!!! We do get quite a few lovely Dutch guests so maybe I should try and learn.
