Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We rented Villa Christel for 4 weeks in June 2017. The villa is located in a semi-rural position where a car is essential. The property is located down a small road where there are only a few other properties.

Overall the Villa is of a good standard, and fitted with all that is required during our stay. To the front of the property there is a large garden, with numerous shrubs, plants and trees. Immediately outside of the villa there is a large undercover dining area with a BBQ and table, great for dining day and night. The property inside is roomy, there are numerous ceiling fans, and with A/C fitted to the main bedrooms which was great on hot nights. There is a very large downstairs shower, which is great, the shower upstairs is adequate but could have been bigger. The villa is located in a secluded position which is not overlooked by any other property, the private swimming pool is probably the best we have experienced during our visits to Spain, and is positioned behind the property where it receives sunshine all day long through to sun set. There are numerous sun lounges and shaded areas around the pool, and again a large table and chairs under a canopy. Also a small bar area complete with fridge and sink.

There are a variety of supermarkets in both Alhaurín de la Torre and in Alhaurin Grande, both these towns are about 15mins drive away from the villa. Both these towns have a selection of restaurants, we can recommend the Chinese, and ice cream parlour in Torre, and the Fish, meat and Paella restaurants in Grande.

The coast of Torremolinos, Benelmadena and Fengeroler are approx 30 mins drive away, there are plenty of eating and drinking places to be found. Good places to visit are Benalmadena marina and pueblo and the old town of Torremolinos. For those wanting to see ‘flash cars, boats, take a visit to Porte Banus, and pass a couple of hours ‘people watching’ at the marina. The little Spanish town of Mijas is also a must to see, this is about a 20 mins drive over the mountain.

Overall we had a great stay at the villa, and villa owners Keith and Lynn who lived behind the villa and are on hand to give lots of tips, about the area and any problems that you may encounter. – Thanyou so much.

P.S. Rosie our Chocolate Labrador also really enjoyed the villa

Private secluded relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Villa, with all amenities, brilliant pool area with bar and fridge. Maria's restaurant just a short walk down the lane served excellent and cheap meals, seven meals with drinks cost us 40 euros. Supermarket 5 mins drive away, Plaza Mayor shopping complex and train station with frequent trains to and from Malaga is about 15 mins drive away with lots of shops and places to eat, there are also kids activities.

Keith and Lynn the villa owners live at the rear of the property and are extremely nice people who will give you any help you need during your stay.

We all really enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again, such a beautiful property and lovely people, thanks Keith and Lynn for all your help. Steve Sue and family.

Villa très agréable, et très bien située , proche de Malaga et autres villes côtières. Nous étions 2 familles (4 adultes- 4 enfants)

Le jardin est superbe, encore mieux que sur les photos, il est très bien entretenu, avec beaucoup de lieux ombragés . La zone piscine est superbe avec une cuisine extérieure, et les propriétaires donnent beaucoup d'eux mêmes afin que cela reste nickel. Les propriétaires étant à proximité, l'entretien est journalier.

Nos hôtes étaient parfaits, très accueillants et serviables, nous avons apprécié passer de bons moments avec Lynn et Keith.

Je conseille à tous de réserver cette villa, et on y retournera avec plaisir, en attendant Lynn et Keith, vous allez nous manquer .... gros bisous

Car: recommended

Villa Cristel is only 20 minutes inland from Malaga Airport. It is situated down a quiet/private road and is very close to the villages of Alhaurin De La Torre ans Alhaurin El Grande. Both of these have shops, bars and restaurants for you to enjoy. A car will be needed to explore these but there are 2 bar/restaurants within a few minutes walk from Villa.

The villa has 3 double and 1 single bedroom upstairs and a bathroom. The kitchen has a gas cooker with 5 burners on the hob, microwave, kettle , halogen oven etc. The lounge is fairly spacious with 4 leather sofas and dining table. Leading from the louge there is a utility room with washing machine, iron/board and large shower and toilet. There is a large covered outside kitchen area with BBQ , American fridge and large dining table.

If you are feeling energetic there is a ping pong table for you to enjoy. There are many different areas in the beautiful gardens to sit and relax including another covered area in the front garden with more seats to enjoy the relaxing noise of the fountain. There is also a pond full of Coi carp. The pool area is behind the villa in an elevated position giving you stunning mountain views. The pool area has a bar area with fridge to keep those beers nice and cool. There are lots of fruit and palm trees around the garden. The owners live on a seperately fenced area at the far end of the land, they are there if you need any help or advice about anything.
