Spanish Casa luxury home with 3 bedrooms all ensuite bathrooms & close to Mijas
Why Bob Brittaine chose Mijas
In 2013 we decided to build a holiday home in the exclusive Voltacado Urbanisation near Mijas. The project was finished in July 2015 with gardens completed in September the same year. 2019 is our fourth season with this house and we do hope all enjoy this beautiful home and stunning location.
What makes this Villa unique
A modern classical fully air-conditioned home set out in a contemporary style with all the modern fittings and facilities you only find in top luxury homes. This includes a home cinema room and an American style games room with pool table, jukebox and pinball machine in the ground floor. The heated swimming pool over looks the mountains and is set into a large open terrace with shading, where needed. Additionally, there's a large quiet shaded area in the gardens, for relaxing or just reading a book. The lounge opens onto the kitchen and dining room with great views to the mountains and down to the coast. The master bedroom with King size bed and guest bedroom with a Queen, also look out over the mountains. All bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms with the master bathroom having a walk-in shower. Under floor heating is provided for the winter and a wood burning stove in the lounge for an extra boost if needed.

Stunning villa in a glorious location that more than matched our expectations. Cinema room and Diner a big hit with all of us just right after a lazy day sunbathing by the pool..
We have stayed in quite a few villa in different places but this was one of our favourites . Communication with Bob leading up to stay was excellent, met at villa shown around . Villa is very well equipped . Pool good size and plenty of shade around if you need it . 3 good size bedrooms all an suite and amazing cinema room and games room downstairs. You will need a car but we liked just being away in the hills and villa not overlooked . Will definitely be returning
Thank you for your kind comments and we are very glad you enjoyed the Villa.

Perfect relax Vila
Villa was exactly as described & couldn’t fault a thing . Lovely view & very peaceful location . Easy checkin & check out .
Such a relaxing week. The villa and its amenities really added to our break. Apparently we need a cinema room at home now!
Thank you for your review, it’s really appreciated.

Definitely coming back
First things first, the pictures do not do this place justice; it really is spectacular. Casa Albero has everything you need for a holiday and then some. We spent a week here and would gladly have stayed for far longer.
Travelling in June meant we enjoyed very long days, still having sunshine beyond 9pm on the terrace. Owing to this, we didn’t make use of the basement cinema room but having visited before can definitely vouch for its quality. We did use the games room a bit for playing some pool and listening to the jukebox.
The gardens are well tended and I had a go at my Spanish with Mario the gardener. The swimming pool was a great way to cool off in the afternoons and I found a small floatation device in the garage which was the perfect size for a beer!
Away from the house, the area is great. Mijas is a lovely little village with lots of winding roads away from the two main squares which are fun to explore. We tried a local restaurant called El Postillon which was a 10 minute drive. If you go on a Thursday they have a guitarist playing on the terrace which added to the atmos! Food and wine was pretty fab too.
Further afield, we drove to the lakes at Guadalahorce and went for a hike around El Chorro. We don’t really have a head for heights but Caminito Del Rey would be good for anyone who does!
All in all, Casa Albero is highly recommended and I’ve booked again already.
Thank you for your review. Good to welcome you back and good also to see you have booked a return trip.

Five star villa
This is a fantastic villa: the location, the facilities, the view. The photos really do not do this place justice.
We have stayed in many villas and this one has, without doubt, been the best.
The experience leading up to our holiday was also excellent and totally hassle-free. Bob and Denise do a far better job than the actual villa rental companies we’ve used previously! They obviously care about the experience you have when renting from them and it shows.
At the villa there are different external seating areas meaning there is always a shaded or sunny place to sit with a lovely view of the mountains. The pool is gorgeous. En suite bathrooms are all large. Kitchen is amazingly well stocked. The games room is perfect! The cinema room is amazing: my husband was very dismissive at first, thinking it was a gimmick, but on first use it was clear that this is the real deal, and we used it every night! It became his favourite part of the villa!
Although there is a feeling of seclusion with Casa Albero, the villa is actually very easily accessible and it takes only a few minutes from the A-7/AP-7 up one road to find it.
Mijas pueblo is only a few minutes away. What a beautiful place with plenty to see and do (and places to eat and drink!). Compared to villas we have rented in Nerja and Sotogrande, this one felt very well located and we found we could get to many other areas of Costa del Sol in a short time. However our favourite place to be was the actual villa, closely followed by Mijas pueblo.
We used Helle Hollis for car rental, as recommended, and other than the chaos at Malaga airport when trying to get a courtesy bus, the Helle Hollis experience was good. We were able to get a discount via a code given to us by Bob and we also booked early enough to get the Early Bird discount - well worth it. They are not the cheapest but are way, way preferable to others like Goldcar, in our experience.
This is the first villa we have rented where the entire family were unanimous in wanting to return.
Thank you Bob and Denise for such great service and for letting us rent such a fabulous villa.
This luxury house is situated in an exclusive urbanisation near the picturesque pueblo town of Mijas. In Mijas, only 7 minutes drive away there are plenty of restaurants, interesting shops and it is a delightful place to spend time browsing the shops, visiting the tiny bullring or museum and taking a leisurely lunch. Further away at some 20 minutes drive is Fuengriola where you will also find the 7 Km long sandy beach although less touristy beaches will be found by driving a further 10 minutes. The central location means you are not far from beaches, water parks, Selwo safari park, natural parks, botanical gardens, zoo and much more. Towns such as Marbella, Puerto Banus, Ronda, Granada and not forgetting Gibraltar are all close by. Although we strongly recommend a hire car for your stay, there is a regular bus service to local towns and connections to major bus routes.
For nightlife: Mijas or Fuengriola.
Golf: There are many golf courses in Andalucia. Some 10 minutes drive from the Villa is the Severiano Ballesteros designed course at Alhuarin.
