About Johan Kjell and Pia Inkeroinen

Owners Pia and Johan:

Pia: “Well, I have been lucky enough to land a job that takes me around the world…nothing beats a reimbursable trip to Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland…. Unfortunately, I haven’t been very good at keeping a travelogue, so my memories will be based on foggy memories dating back to 2001. I was born and raised in a working class in Finland and learned that nothing is given you free and you must work hard to accomplish the goals. My goals were always to travel around the world and see what it had in storage for me. But eventually, it was not so much the quality as it was the quantity of these visits. I wanted always see the major cultural and historical parts of the place and ensure that I take time to get out of the “touristy” areas and explore the real culture and lifestyle of a people. So far I have also lived and worked in three different countries and I am very happy that I have been able to see so much of the other part of world… but I am not done yet… I hope to be able to live permanently in my dream place  – Andalucia!  

Johan: “Originally from the county side of Sweden, Johan now lives in Sigtuna together with Pia, Pia's son Karan and their two cats Skrotis and Sotis. Besides yoga, he loves living an active outdoor life and has spent a lot of time running, hiking and mountain biking. He is a passionate traveller who takes every chance to explore nature, culture and adventure abroad.”

Johan Kjell and Pia Inkeroinen purchased this villa in 2017

Why Johan Kjell and Pia Inkeroinen chose Canillas de Albaida

We chose to buy this property after seeking 5 years. During our search and after an endless amount of trips we became very familiar with Axcarquía area (Eastern part in Malaga province).

We fell in love with mountains of Sierras of Tejada, Almijara and Alhama and the villages beside it and it takes just 30 minutes for us to drop our feet into the sea.

Driving up to our house (mountain road) takes my breath of away at each time, no matter how many times we have done it!

What makes this villa unique

In Canillas de Albaida, we love the outdoor. We hope you do too!  Canillas de Albaida offer you a unique access to nature – a wonderful way to experience our countryside, whether you are hiking, jogging, bicycling or riding.

The town is surrounded by breathtaking Nature Parks and mountains, and only 25 minutes’ drive from the lovely beaches and 50 minutes’ from Malaga airport.

Excellent house in the hills

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family holiday to Canillas de Albaida in Pia's house. Very spacious house situated on multiple levels captured the essence of the Andalusian town (Just be careful of the stairs with young children or people unstable on their feet) Local amenities were excellent for the family, two great restaurants within 30 seconds walking and a community pool that was cleaner and nicer than many hotels I have stayed in. The locals were very friendly. 20-30min car ride from beach, another 20 mins on there to some great towns and shopping.
