April) and relax in the afternoon on the beach or by the pool. There is a golf course 10 minutes’ drive away which is right on the beach. The picturesque mountain villages of Las Alpujarras are nearby as well as the beautiful cities of Granada with the world-famous Alhambra Palaces and Malaga with its Old Town, Cathedral and Picasso Museum.

Salobreña benefits from the subtropical microclimate with more than 300 days of sunshine a year and an average temperature of over 20 degrees C.

Spacious modern villa in a wonderful location.

19 February 2024 | Alan & Virginia (EN)

The combination of a spacious inside and outside areas together with a wonderful location make this modern villa special. Since it is a relatively long way from any local shops or supermarkets and lacks access to public transport a car is essential. However, there is safe private parking available on site. The villa itself is spacious with three bedrooms and showers on both levels as well as an outside shower. The beds are extremely comfortable, The furniture is tasteful and comfortable with a lovely large lounge and very comfortable sofas. The kitchen is compact but very well equipped and functional. Lovely large outside dining table with eight chairs together with comfortable sun loungers. The location is peaceful and the views of sea, sunsets and mountains are stunning. If you are regular walker or hiker, you can use the quiet mountain roads to reach the restaurant at the summit of Cerro Gordo in 35 minutes; the all year round Barraca beach bar at Cantarriján in under an hour; or even La Herradura sea front in about 90 minutes. If you then fancy a drink a taxi back will cost just a few euros. The booking process and administrative bits are simple and straightforward. The intermediate correspondence and welcome from Carlos were prompt and supportive with all questions answered.

Enjoyed it all but, perhaps because we were perhaps the first season's visitors in the second week of February, there was a slight smell of drains in the bathrooms and toilets. Couple of ceiling downlights in kitchen not working,

Dear family,

Thank you very much for your detailed comments regarding your stay at villa Tropical.

We are happy that you enjoyed the beautiful location and the beautiful view. And we like that the villa was comfortable and beautiful. Thank you for your nice suggestions for various outings.

In response to your comments, we have thoroughly cleaned the drains and replaced the lamps in the ceiling.

We trust that villa Tropical is a beautiful villa for all its guests to relax and enjoy.

Sunny regards,

Team Villas Colores Spain


Overcomplete Villa

1 August 2023 | Ayhan (EN)

This villa is absolutely complete and the view is amazing. Also access to a larger pool, tennis court and football field is very nice to have. Because this villa was recently renovated everything feels new and cosy. Also the car parking was very nice as there is some roof-covering the sun from heating the car.

We could not find anything actually. As an improvement for the host is: - instructions for the washing machine was missing - we could not find a garlic press.

Hello Ayhan,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay in Villa Tropical. We're happy to hear you appreciated the covered parking area which is great in summer and that you enjoyed having nearby access to the community facilities as well as the modern, recently-refurbished house in general. We will pass on your feedbak to the owners.

We look forward to welcoming you back next year!

Villas Colores team.

Map & surrounding area


Salobreña, dazzling and white, is situated in the very heart of the Costa Tropical, in the South of Spain. Adjacent to the Mediterranean Sea and only a one hour drive from Malaga International Airport. The landscape is made up of agricultural valleys and rugged mountains which descend abruptly into sea. This creates attractive open beaches and more importantly, beautiful hillside locations for our villas, offering marvelous views of the Mediterranean Sea!

Salobreña’s striking architecture is an impressive sight. Whitewashed houses are scattered across a small mountain, dominated by a beautiful Moorish castle, 110 meters above sea level and beautifully illuminated at night. Salobreña and its beaches are only a ten minute drive away from our villas, and most of our villas do not only have marvelous sea views, but also a georgous view of this little white town.
