About Philip Briggs
We are a family of 6 which includes myself, Phil, my wife Joanne and our 4 boys aged 1, 7, 11 and 13. We lived in Spain for 3 years during which time we bought our villa. A downturn in the economy forced a decision to return to the UK where we were able to pick up our previous careers in electrical engineering and primary school teaching. We now live in Preston in the North West of the UK, not quite Calahonda but still very nice.
Why Philip Briggs chose Sitio de Calahonda
We bought our villa in 2007 whilst living in Spain. The villa was home to our family until a decision was reached to return to the UK, from this point onwards we have rented our villa for holiday rentals.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa was bough for my family to live in so as you would expect it is very family friendly. We did not want a private pool primarily for safety reasons as well as the up keep. When you visit our villa you will understand why the communal garden and wonderful pool made that a very easy decision.

Excellent all round - would highly recommend
Excellent holiday, largely down to the fantastic villa. 2 adults and 4 children - there was plenty of room for us all.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We really appreciate it

Lots of space and great layout. Huge pool, which we had to ourselves most of the time.
Great location with easy access to Calahonda town and also many nearby towns and beaches.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It really is much appreciated. Jo and Phil
Lovely Villa & pool
Had a wonderful stay at the lovely villa and communal pool. The pool was mostly unused most of the day and therefore we had it to ourselves a lot! Had a slight problem with the air con in the master bedroom but the owners sorted it quickly and efficiently. Overall, very happy and enjoyed our stay, would recommend.
Thank you very much for your lovely review. We're glad you enjoyed your time at our villa.
Perfect holiday, lovely villa, good location.
The Villa is large, spacious and airy. The garden is big and really quiet with all day sun and plently of loungers and nice cushions to put out. The villa is well stocked with crockery and glasses. The bedrooms are airy and there is hanging space in all. The pool area was very quiet, albeit out of school holidays. It is a stones throw from the front door. The location is lovely and quiet but easily walkable to the bars and restaurants on the strip. In my opinion it is one of the best we've stayed in Calahonda. I don't want to give such a glowing review as would love to return next year, and don't want it to be booked up. Phil and Jo are easy to deal with and respond very quickly. I couldn't not give 5 stars.
Thank you so much for your lovely review of our villa. It really is very much appreciated. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your holiday and would love to welcome you back next year. Phil and Jo
Superb accommodation. Cool inside and spacious too. Private patio area and only 20m away is a wonderful pool set in well kept gardens. Most days we had the large pool to ourselves. A fifteen minute walk takes you to the boardwalk along the coast and the same driving time will see you in Marbella one way or Cala de Mijas the other. Do the 'big shop' in the excellent Lidl by the underpass.
Family friendly Villa with Shared Pool 3 doors away
We stayed with 2 small children during the easter holidays and had a great time. Having access to scooters and trampoline, was a real bonus, as was the scooter friendly back garden. The villa is ideal for a family, well laid out accomodation. Plus large outdoor table for outside eating. We would definitely re-book. The directions to find the villa were excellent and easy to follow from Malaga airport to the door.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It is great to hear that your children enjoyed the scooters and the trampoline. Please let us know if we can be of any help in the future. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to our villa in the future.
