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. 2018 is our third 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.

Really is a dream home!
I'd love not to leave this review so that not too many people know how wonderful Casa Albero is, but that would be unfair to the lovely owners, Bob & Denise, who really have created a dream home. We, and our 9 & 4 year old, had a truly fabulous holiday.
The villa is in perfect condition, immensely spacious, private, beautifully furnished & finished with every convenience & mod con you could wish for. The current photos, especially of the main bedroom do not remotely do it justice.
We were very lucky with the weather for what can be a dicey time of year (late Oct), but we enjoyed lots of sunshine & day temps in the late 20's/early 30's.
It's 8mins into Mijas Pueblo, which is charming & scenic: we loved it & had several meals there. We would book a taxi in advance online with taximijas.en. Only 9 euros into Mijas meaning we could both enjoy more than a glass of wine & choose from the numerous restaurants. We particularly like the service and quality of food at Peccati Di Gola, along with a stunning view down to the coast. The staff are top notch. (Yes it's an Italian but for a casual dinner with 2 travel weary children it ticked all the boxes for the 1st night). Aroma Secret Garden was also lovely, more so for the setting than food.
There are really too many positives to mention about Casa Albero, but some memory highlights:
-sipping a G&T watching the sun set over the most beautiful mountain views
-having a family diner & movie night :this is NOT a mediocre attempt at a home cinema: it's a proper cinema experience with reclining leather seats and incredible sound & picture quality
-a morning cuppa from the quality coffee machine whilst lying in bed watching the sun rise over the mountains directly opposite
-cooking up wonderful feasts in the superbly equipped kitchen whilst listening to the Sonos sound system & the sun streaming in via the balcony doors
One minor note..... if like us you specifically filter your Owners Direct results to only include properties with pool heating, you may find it a little cool from Oct - May. Bob was completely honest from the outset in advising us to expect pool temps of 25 deg. In reality we didn't realise how cool that would be. Only the children could get in: us 'grown ups' had no chance! The good news is Bob is installing an insulated cover soon, so it's worth checking with him that it's had the desired effect!
If you're booked to go : you lucky things! If you're thinking about booking - do it!!
Dear Lisa, James and family, Thank you for your wonderful detailed review and very pleased you enjoyed your experience at Casa Albero. On our next trip (November), we shall be arranging the pool cover and early next year shall be able to report on its effectiveness. We hope you will be able to return again soon.

From the decription and pictures we saw before we went we knew it was going to a lovely villa, but when we got there we relised it is so much more, words can't describe the quality and attention that has been applied to this fantastic villa both in the building of it in the 1st place and the fixtures and fitting within, the views are stunning, the size of the place is huge and what can I say about the Amercan dinner and cinema room, you will never find better facilities in a rental villa!! this place has definatly raised the bar on future holiday bookings, I think we will need to come back here for ever now as we will never find anything like it again.
Bob & Denise were fantastic in the booking process and once we got there Elaine & Sue who were the caretakers were brilliant, explaining how everything worked (believe me you need it with the cinama setup) and being available during the stay if we had any further questions after the initial check in.
Can't wait to book again.
Thank you for your great review and really pleased you enjoyed your stay.

Surpassed our expectations.
This was to be our first holiday as a family renting a Villa. Family of 11 months to 79 years. We wasn’t sure what to expect but knew from the photos/info it was going to be great. However, we were blown away from the minute we arrived. We were met by two lovely ladies Elaine & Sue who look after the villa, they were very knowledgeable about the equipment and area and gave us lots of advice.
Bob & Denise have put a lot of thought into what people enjoy and want from a holiday, the quality and style of the villa and its equipment is the best, no expense spared. From the music system to the Cinema and Games room. The ambiance of the area is a dream, we had fun filled days around the pools & gardens and relaxing evening BBQ’s eating on the terrace watching the sunsets over the luscious green Mountains. 100% tranquillity. 12 Euros in a taxi to the nearest village Mijas which is well worth a visit. From start to finish we had an excellent stay and would recommend without hesitation.
Thanks Bob & Denise for sharing your beautiful home.
Delphi & Nick from Lancashire.
Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased you enjoyed your family holiday and found all to your liking.

A great place to unwind
Stayed here for 10 days to unwind after a very busy start to the year. This is my third trip and still find Casa Albero a great place to relax and enjoy Spain. The facilities are first rate and now count an outdoor Sonos system. Whilst the weather was mainly good there were a couple of days where I had to utilise the heating. This quickly provided some warmth. The views from the terrace over the valley ahead was beautiful and a great place to enjoy a Gin and Tonic.
Mijas is just down the road where there are plenty of options to wine and dine if you do not want to cook for yourself. The coast is only 10-15 minutes away.
Made great use of the cinema room and provides a great place to retire to in the evening.
Glad you enjoyed it.
A first class villa in a commanding location.
We stayed at Casa Albero for a week in mid October.
The property is exceptionally well presented and equipped with a fantastic kitchen dining area, superb bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms.
Views over the surrounding countryside are uninterrupted and the location on the edge of the development is very quiet and peaceful.
The swimming pool,games room and home cinema were a great hit with the kids, providing all day entertainment.
Would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone!
Thank you for your positive review and we are pleased you and your family enjoyed all the facilities.

Superb quality in a stunning location
Excellent property with well-thought out layout and plentiful facilities capped off with a stunning view of the rugged landscape. Villa was clean and spacious with high quality fittings to satisfy every need, from the swimming pool next to gently swaying palm trees to the much frequented games room with a decent pool table and addictive pinball machine.
The American bar will make anyone feel they are a fully fledged bartender whilst serving drinks. The cinema room is a nice touch, especially being a movie buff as it gives almost the same experience a high scale cinema chain. You don’t even have to bring your own DVD’s or BluRay’s as there is a healthy selection to choose from. Kitchen design is exceptional, a centre island giving plenty of room to fit multiple people with a large and sturdy fridge / freezer.
Location is ideal for the explorer, within a comfortable driving distance to the main points of interest in Southern Spain including Mijas, Malaga, Marbella and even Gibraltar as well as large supermarkets in the area to stock up on food & drink. The owner does a nice touch of compiling a useful Guide of local towns and even recommends great restaurants to visit.
The marble floors give a luxurious feel as does the entire building, you can feel and experience the thought and care put into the property, and will come away with a favourable impression – I definitely recommend this property to anyone who would like a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle but close enough by car to fully immerse themselves in the Spanish experience.
Nick, Thank you for your excellent review. We are glad you found all to your liking and we look forward to you coming back again.

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.
Included in the rental is a credit of £100 per week for electricity. Usage above this amount will be deducted at cost.
