Overview

About the property

3 double beds, 3 baths, Sleeps 6

See our reviews on TripAdvisor but remember to book via Owners Direct for best prices!

Southwest facing our 3-bedroom converted Finca has panoramic views of the valley and mountains beyond, stretching to the sea. Whatever time of year if the sun is out you will get it by our pool from late morning onwards and you'll be able to enjoy sunset with a glass of your favourite tipple!

The private pool (5m x 3m) is set in a lovely garden, the pool is not fenced so the villa is not suitable for children under 10 years of age. Although the nearest neighbours are within 20 metres, the garden, pool area and both terraces are not overlooked and offer complete privacy.

A traditional 'Barbacoa de obra' is available for those summer night BBQs. Sit on the terrace with a cocktail and enjoy the last rays of the sun as it sets over the mountains.

The villa is located 7 mins drive from Mijas Pueblo, a car is essential.

About Jasia, Stew & Martina

We are three friends who have known each other for too many years to mention. It has long been a dream of ours to own a property in Spain to give us a place to relax and get away from our hectic working life. In 2012 that dream was finally achieved when we purchased Finca Los Gorriones.

Jasia, Stew & Martina purchased this villa in 2012

Why Jasia, Stew & Martina chose Mijas

When we saw the tired old finca we knew that with a bit of hard work we could make it into the right place for us. We named it Finca Los Gorriones after all the Sparrows that frequent the area. We love how relaxed we feel when we go there and hope that you will feel the same too!

What makes this villa unique

We get the sun rfom mid morning onwards and unlike Mijas Pueblo and parts of the coast we get the very last rays as it sets over the mountains at around 10pm in the summer. Being able to enjoy a sun-downer cocktail was top of our list and with the finca facing south west it certainly ticks that box!

Beautiful scenery and a very relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned after a very relaxing and enjoyable 2 weeks at Finca Los Gorriones. This has been a wonderful break and experience from the moment of booking with Martina, the information and details provided about the villa (directions, access, local area) through to the time spent enjoying the wonderful views and fantastic weather. We were expecting to be impressed by the scenery from the villa but to be honest we didn't come close to what it was like in reality. This is a real strength of the location.

The villa is spacious and comfortable and decorated to a good level throughout. For the 5 of us it was ideal and never felt cramped. We enjoyed trips to Malaga (the cathedral, CAC Contemporary Art Centre, Picasso Museum and Centre Pompidou Malaga at the harbour) as well as the nearby El Chorro lakes with their turquoise waters. We were less smitten with Marbella and Fuengirola but that is obviously a matter of taste. Mijas which is situated nearby is a beautiful place to visit but be warned it does get busy with tourists and parking can be a challenge! Eating out was a great experience and we have eaten far too many varieties of paella.

We would strongly recommend choosing this villa if you want to get away to somewhere quiet and relaxing. You can feel confident in dealing with the owners of the villa as they have been nothing short of brilliant throughout. This was a fantastic break and we would say this has been a very pleasant and positive villa rental from start to end!

Will be returning

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this place! We love the area and have been before and this is, personally, my favourite of all the villas we've ever rented. I loved the location and the layout. Yes the pools kind of small and it's not easy to get to but that's nothing that's hidden from you when you look to book. It's exactly what you see. It's extremely spanish and pretty rural so not for everyone but we will be booking for 2 weeks next year as loved it. We found the fan was fine for keeping us cool and the aircon in the bedrooms was perfect, and that was in july so hot! You do need a car and the villa is reasonably simple and well used but nothing that made me dislike it. I absolutely loved it there and can't wait to return. I spoke with Martina throughout the booking and pre arrival and she was brilliant and couldn't have been more helpful. Wish the place was mine!!

Great holiday again

  • 5 of 5

You can't go wrong here, book with confidence, the villa is much nicer than the pictures show. A car is a necessity but getting about is easy, Mijas town 10 minutes away and 30 minutes to the Marina at Benalmadena. Worth the money just for the views.

Great villa in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here on a short golfing trip with 3 other adults - loads of space, beds very comfortable, spotlessly clean

Kitchen and utility room very good with dish washer etc

Information sent was spot on, following their instructions to the letter made for a simple journey from Malaga airport

Will definitely use again

Comfortable and peaceful escape.

  • 4 of 5

A great place to get away from it all in January. A home from home. Situated well off the beaten track. If you don't know the area, make sure you follow the given routing and not your gps. Great views and a peaceful experience.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely fantastic and all direction from airport were very easy to follow. We arrived and everything was there that you could of wished for .The views from the front of the terrace were second to none and changed every half hour . Even at night when the pool was lit and the sun was setting it was beautiful. We would not hesitate to book this wonderful Villa again we hope to return the same time next year. It was only a short ride to Mijas, Coin ,Benalmadena Pueble and Marbella. The Terrace area was a lovely sun trap and just nice to sit and eat. We used the BBQ twice which was very easy too clean. All instructions were also easy follow for access to the villa.

Thankyou all very much for a lovely stay.

Car: necessary

The popular coastal town of Fuengirola is only 15 minutes by car and has direct train to Malaga Airport as well as buses to all parts of the coast. A car is essential.

Costa del Sol is full of beaches along its coastline and can be explored easily by car hire or public transport. A must to try are the BBQ Sardines from the beach bars and restaurants along the beach fronts. Also there are beautiful Marinas along the coast; the most local are Benalmádena, Marbella and very famous Puerto Banus with its designer boutiques. Finca Los Gorriones is only 20 minutes drive from the nearest beaches and vibrant nightlife of Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Torremolinos, and within 30 minutes drive of Marbella. Lively Fuengirola boasts many fine restaurants, water sports, beaches, a marina and an aquapark. For those ‘night-birds’ there are also several discos and places of entertainment here.

There is something for everyone in this area of the Costa Del Sol. Inland can be found the ‘Real Spain’ of breath-taking mountain views and many ‘Ventas’ – the typical Spanish restaurants. There are over 20 golf courses within half an hour’s drive, Alhaurin golf being only 5 minutes drive away. Go-karting, Fuengirola aquapark and horse riding are all close by. Those interested in horse racing can go to the magnificent new track in Mijas. The recently refurbished Lew Hoad’s tennis club is within 15 minutes drive. For those staying during the winter, skiing in the Sierra Nevada can be reached within 2 hour’s drive. Clay pigeon shooting is available in Monda, which is approximately 30 minutes away by car. The picturesque inland village of Mijas is one of the Costa Del Sol’s finest examples of an historical Pueblo Blanca or ‘white village’. Mijas features old cobbled streets and many places of interest, including old churches, museum, bars and restaurants, several serving authentic Spanish tapas and with stunning views of the Mediterranean coastline from its high vantage point. There are regular buses to the popular coastal town of Fuengirola, and to the traditional inland town of Alhaurin El Grande. For people-watching, fine dining or indulging in a bit of retail therapy, Finca Los Gorriones is ideally located for visiting Marbella and Puerto Banús, both just 30 minutes away by car
