Your hosts

Martin & Aletta

In 2015 we emigrated from the Netherlands and since then we live on the small-scale holiday park Casa Lobera in southern Spain. In addition to the three holiday homes of Casa Lobera we also rent out Villa Azar and Casa Montaña. All houses are close to or in the authentic white village of Canillas de Aceituno in Andalusia.

About us

Pleased to meet you! | Encantado!

We, Martin & Aletta de Vries, are a Dutch couple in our mid 50s. Martin worked as a sales manager in food service, Aletta as a secretary and human resource assistant. She also had her own business in garden maintenance and design. 

The reason for building another life in Spain was that Martin lost his passion for work due to too much stress. Aletta knew she could adjust in Spain because she had previously lived and worked abroad for many years. It appealed to both of us to live in a sunny country, where we can spend more time outside.

After having visited several times the beautiful region of Axarquía (east of the city of Málaga) searching for a suitable accommodation, we have lost our hearts to the small-scale holiday park Casa Lobera in February 2015. Beautifully situated at the foot of the Sierra Tejeda natural park and just a fifteen minute walk from the charming white village of Canillas de Aceituno. A few months later we emigrated.

We live in one of the four houses of Casa Lobera and run our holiday park with great pleasure. It is our passion to offer our guests an unforgettable stay and are happy to give information and tips. If you need our help we are always there for you. In our spare time we like to go for a walk on which our cats often accompany us. We also like to discover other parts of Spain. 

We embrace the unspoilt region of Axarquía. In this part of Andalusia Spain is still truly Spain and you will experience a tranquility that we did not find elsewhere. We hope that our love for the Axarquía will touch you and that we can welcome you at Casa Lobera, Villa Azar or Casa Montaña!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to help you!

Many sunny greetings,
Martin en Aletta
