The neighborhood

Casa de Laila is a serene oasis of beauty and tranquility. Offering an exclusive spacious independent suite on the first floor of the finca set in the beautiful surroundings of r Guadalhorce Valley in Andalucia, Spain, it’s a hidden gem.

Nestled on a hillside, overlooking the whitewashed town of Alhaurín el Grande and the mountains of the Sierra de las Nieves on the horizon, it takes only 30mins drive to get to Malága Airport and the Costa del Sol.

Right behind Casa de Laila is a beautiful pine forest of the Sierra de Mijas, offering peaceful walking trails with caves and from the peak wonderful views across to Morocco.

Granada, Ronda and Malaga and Marbella are all within reach and are ideal day trip destinations.

Even though the Costa del Sol is close by, we prefer to drive a bit further to get away from the concrete. The beaches around Nerja and Tarifa are our favorites.

A more hidden destination that we recommend to our guests are the Ardales Lakes. The crystalline turquoise waters of these lakes are surrounded by pine forests.

Close to the lakes, you will find El Chorro, with it's newly opened spectecular Caminito del Rey walk way, set high up a cliff.

We offer a guide to our guests, in which you will find detailed information about various things to do, places to see and where to eat!

Getting around

Even though there are public bus connections to major destinations, we advise car rental for those who are keen reach the more 'off the beaten track' destinations. Many guests however opt not to rent cars and simply spend their time enjoying the natural surroundings of Casa de Laila.

Other things to note

You will be asked to fill in a check in form and to provide your passport number.

Benjamin and Anne Marie were amazing hosts! They made us feel really welcome and were great for advice on must do's in the area. Casa de Laila was the perfect place for a relaxing get away, it's truly beautiful and peaceful. We would definitely recommend doing a yoga class and having a massage (they're amazing!). Also don't miss out on Anne Marie's cooking we had 2 meals there which were delicious! Thanks for having us to stay!! Hopefully we'll be back again.

We're a Dutch / Australian couple who have met here at Casa de Laila back in 2010. It's not only been the start of a wonderful life together, but also marks the beginning of us opening up our magical home to guests from all around the world.

We've been running a succesful glamping place over the last 6 years, welcoming tourists, yoga retreats and wedding couples, and earning two Tripadvisor Certificates of Excellence. In addition to our glamping accommodation, we offer very comfortable accommodation in the apartment on the first floor of our country house.

When we're travelling ourselves, we're inspired by going off the beaten track, exploring local customs, being in nature, and getting a taste of history and culture. We strive to offer our guests the same type of experiences.

In our time off, we enjoy cooking and eating, doing yoga, going for walks and playing music - Ben plays the guitar and I love singing!

We also love our animals: We have a big gentle dog called Rami, a cat called Madcat, 3 Vietnamese potbelly pigs called Diamante, Ziggy and Blossom, and lots of chickens.

Thank you so much for your interest, and we're looking forward to welcoming you here soon!
