About Stephanie

Hello, I am Frank and I have owned the property in Spain for over 25 years. I came to visit my parents whom had retired here and decided this is the place for me. My partner Stephanie and I have travelled extensively around the world, and have yet to find anywhere else we would prefer to live. The area has the perfect climate, travel is easy, great areas to explore, the beaches are clean and the main attraction. For us the day trips inland are spectacular and can really add to your holiday experience to discover the real Spain. We would be pleased to pass on our 'local' knowledge to people wishing to visit this beautiful part of Spain. We are associated with local classic car clubs, running and walking clubs and enjoy cycling.

Why Stephanie chose Mijas

I have travelled around the world with my work and I still have not found a place where I would prefer to live than in Andalucia. The small strip which is the "Cost Del Sol" is only the tip! a fantastic place to base your self from as during the hot summers you have the cool sea breeze and you have the added advantage of day trips inland exploring the true Spain.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is ideally situated only a short distance from town yet not remote with easy access to the motorways, airport and yet only minutes away from some beautiful villages and country side.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We're just back from a one week stay (June 2012) at Villa Baranco and are already making plans to come back next year. The only thing better than the villa itself was the owner Stephanie who really went over and above the call of duty to be helpful and settle us in (and out!).

The villa is extremely comfortable (beds and settee in particular), nicely decorated and well equipped (big LCD TV with UK channels!). Air con in the bedrooms was a boon at night, but the villa naturally stays reasonably cool anyway. The private pool was a good size and is not overlooked and the various terraces are perfect for alfresco dining/drinking or just chilling reading a book The location is perfect also, 10 mins walk to the shops and 26 mins (yes we timed it!) to the front at Fuengirola/Los Boliches, yet the villa itself is in a nice quiet residential area. If you get the train from Malaga airport a car is really not necessary. Overall, Villa Baranco is easily the best accomodation we have found

Further Details:

For an insight into the local culture you should try one of the 'Ferias'. They are a lot of fun and an insight into Andalucia culture, each village or town will hold their own during the year, so if you are lucky you should be able to experience one during your stay.

The biggest fiesta on the coast is the Malaga Feria held at the beginning of August the local Fuengirola Feria is mid Oct. The local markets are a fantastic place to pick up those holiday gifts, the biggest market on the coast is every Tuesday in Fuengirola, with some fantastic bargains, leather goods being a good buy!!

various places we recommend you to visit. The lakes of El Chorro the largest lake in Andalucia with turquoise blue water, are a must to visit, Gibraltar, and a day trip to Tangiers in Morocco, Malaga is a wonderful city and under rated, Ronda, Tarifa for the outdoor type who enjoy windsurfing/kiting - reckoned to be the best in Europe, miles and miles of white sandy beaches, horse riding is available on the beaches, Granada, Cordoba, Sevilla, Jerez all worth a visit. We can give you more info should you decide to visit any of the above. closer to home are Marbella, and the home of the rich and famous Puerto Banus,

Mijas Village: with its cobbled streets and winding roads, this has the charm of real Spain. Many authentic Spanish restaurants with beamed ceilings and fireplaces ideal in winter or dine in their open courtyards and terraces in summer. Many local artesan shops selling hand made goods. The views from Mijas are quite stunning

Fuengirola:

This town stretches for many miles along the sea front with its easy walking new promenade (wheelchair friendly). Plenty of restaurants and cafes. shops and bars to suit all tastes.
