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. 2016 is our second season with this house and we do hope all enjoy this beautiful home and stunning location.

What makes this villa unique

A modern home set out in a contemporary style with all the modern fittings and facilities you only find in luxury houses. A home cinema room and games room in the basement. A heated swimming pool which over looks the mountains. A lounge and dining room which look out over the mountains and down to the coast. The master bedroom and guest bedroom also look out over the mountains too. All bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms with the master bathroom having a walk-in shower. Under floor heating is provided for the winter lets and a wood burning stove for an extra boost if needed.

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.

Really is a dream home!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

A first class villa in a commanding location.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Superb quality in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Paradise with a view

  • 5 of 5

Pulling up at the villa never disappoints. Been here a number of times as it is the ultimate place to relax. The facilities are second to none and provides the perfect environment to spend time with friends.

The view is amazing, especially at sunset when the mountains glow alongside a nice gin amd tonic or two!

The games room and cinema room provide great evening entertainment.

The best just got better

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the villa and it was even better than the first stay, this is no mean feat as it was perfection last time.

There is now a Sonos sound system which is perfect when placed next to the pool, spent too much time in the pool with a cold beer listening to music and snoozing.

We actually booked our third stay whilst waiting to board our flight back from Malaga.

Overall this place is superb and I wish I could retire and live there all year round.

Well Done Bob & Denise you should be very proud of your Spanish home.

Wow! What an amazing Villa !!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from an amazing stay at Casa Albero.

Everything was absolutely fantastic and of a very high standard.

The kitchen had lots of brilliant fittings and the fridge/freezer was out of this world, so big especially the awesome cold water and ice machine!!

We stayed in the Villa for a week at the beginning of October and the weather was fantastic! It was very sunny and hot!

The beds were very comfortable, so much so didn't want to get up some days!

There was so much to do in the villa like deciding what film to watch, spoilt for choice, and the 'Cinema Room'-Wow amazing the sound was out of this world!! (Well done Bob - Awesome!) We would watch a film with Popcorn and a beer followed by a game of Pool and a go on the Pinball machine.

Everything else was brilliant and it was so peaceful, a truly relaxing place to go.

We went to a Restaurant in Mijas, called Palangreros, which is absolutely fantastic. The choice of food is amazing and very well priced. If you decide to go, make sure you book in advance as it is very popular. Whilst we were there, a lot of people who just turned up had to be turned away!

Thankyou very much for allowing us to stay in your Villa and it was so relaxing! Everything was perfect and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Sharon, Nigel,Rob and Tina
