Bienvenidos at Villa Zafarraya

Perhaps the most beautiful wheelchair-accessible boutique villa in the world

For 1 to 6 people
3 bedrooms (1 adapted)
2 bathrooms (1 adapted)
Heated swimming pool (Fully wheelchair accessible )


Welcome to our new pearl Villa Zafarraya, a well-kept secret at the foot of the majestic Zafarraya gorge.

Based on our belief that wheelchair users have just as much right to a wonderful holiday as everyone else, we purchased this villa in a magical place.

It will be extensively renovated between September '23 and March '24 to make it fully wheelchair accessible inside and out.

It is our ambition to let you stay in the most beautiful wheelchair-friendly boutique villa in the world! Villa Zafarraya focuses on wheelchair users or people who have difficulty walking and therefore we guarantee a barrier-free stay.

We have had dozens of conversations with people who use a wheelchair to hear from them what possible bottlenecks could be on their holiday.

Only after we had mapped out their extensive wish lists did the major renovation begin to fully tailor the villa to the requirements and wishes of wheelchair users and other people for whom thresholds and height differences could pose an obstacle.

We realize that a nice holiday depends on a few factors:

- the availability of adapted transport
- the presence of necessary aids in and around the villa
- the possibility of possible care on site
- suggestions for small and large wheelchair accessible trips in the area.

We would like to welcome you to this special holiday spot where you can be yourself without limits.

You are very welcome in our new pearl Villa Zafarraya. A place that you only encounter a few times in your life and where you feel like a privileged person when you leave the villa in the morning and are immediately surrounded by nature.

The Zafarraya Gorge is the natural gateway to the province of Malaga. The area around the gorge is special, particularly beautiful, and has its own character. Nature takes over and you imagine yourself in another world, a world where you are a guest for the duration of your holiday and where you will make unforgettable memories.

As soon as you enter the majestic driveway of Villa Zafarraya, you come home to your own paradise. Enjoy the peace and quiet in the spacious garden, between the olive trees that seem to have crept away from the adjacent olive grove. While you relax by your own private swimming pool, you have a majestic view in all directions and you can see the rock formations of the Zafarraya gorge in all their glory.

The villa itself is made with the best Andalusian materials and will be extensively renovated and completely adapted in the coming months. To make it fully wheelchair accessible both inside and outside. The modern and bright interior is perfectly balanced with the authentic architecture of the villa and makes it a stylish and atmospheric whole. Inside and outside fit seamlessly and without barriers and the combination with the beautiful and inspiring surroundings immediately gives everyone a wonderful holiday feeling.

Villa Zafarraya is the ideal place for couples, a family or group of friends, one of whom is a wheelchair user or has difficulty walking. There is plenty of room for everyone to do what feels most like a holiday: read a nice book, enjoy the pool, an extensive meal together or simply dream away in the sun. Outdoor fun is assured by the available Green Egg Style BBQ, table tennis table, dart board -at two heights- and pool games.

Ideal for a short or longer stay.

The landscape is beautiful and there is a surprising number of activities to do in the nearby area.

Whether it is a visit to a small village, the beach or a larger city, on all trips selected by us, the wheelchair user is assured of the presence of a disabled parking parking space and an accessible bar or restaurant that is equipped with an easily accessible wheelchair-friendly toilet.

We have spent a lot of time and attention testing and mapping more than 25 wheelchair-friendly excursions, ranging from 10 minutes to an hour and a half drive.

In this way, Villa Zafarraya is not only a wonderful holiday home, but also a wonderful base from which to explore the region to your heart's content.

In less than 30 minutes you can be on the wheelchair-accesible beach or enjoy a delicious dish in one of the many chiringuitos (beach bars). Culture lovers can quickly reach Malaga, Granada or one of the small white villages in the area.

The climate in the Axarquia is very mild and significantly less hot in summer than inland. The city of Seville is a 2.5-hour drive, Cordoba 2 hours and Granada 1.5 hours and are really worth a visit, especially if you are staying here for a longer period. In and around the village where the villa is located, you will find local tapas bars, restaurants and small supermarkets.

If you book with us, we will be happy to provide you with our guide in advance so that the fun and planning can begin immediately after booking.
