SWEEPING MEDITERRANEAN VIEWS FROM COSTA DEL SOL MOUNTAINTOP

Mijas Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Majestic views of the Mediterranean await you. In the heart of Andalucia, Las Columnas offers easy access to the sea, 100 golf courses within driving distance and many unique home features.

Situated on a mountaintop, Las Columnas is an easy drive to not only world class sporting activities, but is also located in the heart of ancient Moorish history and culture. Las Columnas is just a short walk from Mijas, one of Spain's most famous 'white villages'.

The home's most unique feature is its 13 ancient Roman Columnas that grace the front of the home. Based on a traditional center-courtyard Moorish design, you will not only find family comfort among the spacious rooms, but also a truly soothing environment with several locations to relax in/around the home. The best time to enjoy Las Columnas is in the evening, watching the moon rise over the Mediterranean.

5 large bedrooms with a mixture of queen and twins are featured in the home to accommodate different sizes of families. 3 bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. 2 bedrooms (one queen bedded rooms and one twin bedded room) are connected by one bathroom, perfect for a family with perhaps smaller children. Each bathroom has a shower while 3 of the four also have bathtubs.

Mijas, the quaint 'white village'of Andalucia, offers all the modern conveniences of grocery/souvenier shopping, plus wonderful dining experiences. Our family has always loved El Olivar next to town hall and if you are a soccer fanatic, you must watch a popular match and dine at El Canuelo. Farther into the village, you will find the old square, Spain's only square bullring and 17th century reliefs found in the town's oldest and most beautiful churches. Gardens, playground and an amphitheatre adorn this upper part of town.

Outside of Mijas, there are many cultural highlights. In a day's drive, you can visit the famous Moorish castle, Alhambra in Granada, or the high village of Ronda, or even Seville and Cordoba. Malaga, Andalucia's capital, has many cultural hotspots and a famous botanical garden in the center of the city. Don't miss some old fashioned tapas bars in Malaga. An easy train ride will bring you to the center of rhe city. For younger children, don't miss Tivoli Gardens, a wonderful amusement park, just 20 minutes west of our house. Tivoli is best enjoyed in the evening. For a slightly older age group, there is terrific nightlife in Funegirola, Marbella, and Malaga.

World famous golf courses abound in the Costa Del Sol. 10 minutes from the home is Seve Ballestores' private design, 'Alhaurin'. Mijas Golf, 10 minutes south of the house, is a 36 hole course cut from an old olive tree plantation. About 20 minutes from the house is La Cala,the winter home to the Swedish National Golf Team. Vallederama, The Ryder Cup course, is approximately 35 minutes from Las Columnas. If you are looking for a true beachside course, try Torrequebrada, about 20 minutes southwest of the house. A quaint, little course nestled in the hills northeast of Mijas is Lauro Golf-great value for money and always has open tee times.

If beach activities is what you are looking for, go no further. 8 miles above the hustle and bustle of the coast beach scene lays our home. A quick drive down the coast will put into the beach life of Fuengirola, Marbella and Estepona. Plenty of metered parking is available and a cabana for a day is about 2 Euros. The beachside restaurants offer delicious, fresh seafood and other fare.

About Nell Nicholas

My family has spent our summers at this home from 1970. We love going to the beach during the day and dining out in Mijas at night.

Nell Nicholas purchased this villa in 1970

Why Nell Nicholas chose Mijas

My parents designed and built their dream home on a mountaintop in the Costa Del Sol. We are the sole owners of this grand villa and have enjoyed bringing our own families here for over 40 years. This property is especially unique in that 13 marble ancient Roman columnas hold up the second floor terracing that encompasses this villa. These columns were found in a field by my parents and were quickly incorporated into the design of the villa.

What makes this villa unique

Las Columnas is perfect for multi generational families. Between strolling through the quiet streets of Mijas or Moorish ruins around Andalucia to world famous golf to the quintessential beach atmosphere of the coast, Las Columnas is near it all

Unforgettable and a MUST return trip!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week in paradise at this house! The pictures don't even begin to do it justice! We arrived fresh off of a long week of traveling and immediately felt right at home. The house comfortably slept 10 adults and with multiple families, no one ever felt like they were on top of each other. The entire property is immaculately kept and the gardens are enough to take your breath away, however, if that isn't enough, just glace over the pool to a amazing view all the way down to the beach and to Morocco on clear days!

With multiple living areas and a great dining room, you could spend all your time enjoy the interior of the house but with a veranda and pool area big enough for another house, you won't need to! The house had a fully equipped patio table, big enough for all 10 of us to enjoy meals and company long into the late daylight. For the golfers in the group, the nearby courses will provide challenging and enjoyable golf. If you are not in the golfing group, you will be pleased relaxing by the pool or taking short day trips to the amazing beaches and attractions all around.

The house provides entertainment for all groups and ages and would be an amazing spot for a family reunion, girls or guys weekend, or just a relaxing time for a couple of friends. The airport is only a 30 minute drive away and easily provides access to all over Europe if you should continue your travels. We were all very disappointed when they time came to come and I truly hope to spend another week
(or more!) there in the future!!

This is as Good as it Gets

  • 5 of 5
This house has everything and is in a location that will just take your breath away. The view from the balconies, patios and the pool are incredible. The Costa del Sol, the beautiful Mediterranean and on a clear day, Africa. This is a big, comfortable house with four bedrooms and baths and a nice kitchen. There is an outdoor grill and a washing machine. It is great for a good sized family or a group of couples or a girl's or guys get away. There is a big living room and dining room, but you will spend all of your time on the patio relaxing or eating. There is a large dining table on the patio, comfy seating area and lots of lounge chairs by the pool.

So look no further. You might be happy just to stay at the house. If not, the beautiful white village of Mijas is minutes away, the beach is a short drive, there are dozens of golf courses, and many great day trips. Gibralter and La Alhambre in Grenada are easy day trips that are well worth it. We did not have young kids with us but there were lots of ads for waterparks, zoos, etc. Bonus that the Spanish resdients that you meet are lovely: friendly, helpful, welcoming and willling to go out of their way to make your vacation perfect. Lots of English spoken.

Book this house and have a vacation that will leave you rested, relaxed and with a life time of memories.

Simply the Best...

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from an extraordinary vacation at "Las Columnas". Overlooking the towns of Mijas and Fuengirola, with the Mediterranean as a backdrop, the views from the villa are magical both day and night. The accommodations are comfortably elegant, with one of the best pools ever. No matter what you interests are, from fine dining, beaches, golf, cycling, walking, touring the surrounding countryside, or simply enjoying your beverage of choice by the pool, "Las Columnas" is simply the best place to stay in the region. Enjoy!

WOW !

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place. A slice of heaven . The house views were breathtaking - both day and night. The Mediterranean during the day and the night lights of Fuenjirola at night. All of the great towns were all close in driving distance .The lovely town of Mijas was just mins away . I am already set on going back next year.

Winter in Mijas

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for an extended winter vacation years ago and fell in love with Mijas, Fuenjirola (great music and markets) and Spain. Las Columnas feels spacious but has an intimate living room with a fireplace and great places to enjoy the amazing view. I would love to go back some day!

Best way to see Andalucia!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here last April with a group of friends. The setting is just incredible—private, but close enough to the beautiful town of Mijas, where a quick walk down the hill will provide you all you need -- a great food market with all types of local specialties, shops with great ceramics and clothing, ice cream – something for everyone.
The villa is luxurious yet comfortable, with public and private terraces that overlook the stepped garden to the pool. The gardens are lovingly filled with all types of flora and palm trees. My favorite moment was sipping my morning coffee by the blue and white tiled fountain flanked by Roman columns and watching the mist burn off the adjacent mountain to reveal the Mediterranean below.
Mijas is so perfectly located that were able to use the villa as home base and visit many wonderful but more touristy towns nearby including Granada and the spectacular Alhambra, Ronda, Malaga and Cordoba. It was great to have the respite of this magnificent home at the end of the day. The pool, grounds and home are impeccable, clean and hit all the right points of what I look for in a vacation home. I highly recommend this rental and cannot wait to return! Enjoy!
