Very Pleasant & Convenient Modern Villa

  • 5 of 5

My partner & I enjoyed an 11 day stay in Tolox in May this year.

The descriptions of the villa and its facilities are accurate whilst the villa itself was clean, well presented and very well situated - easy, short walking distance to local bars, shops and restaurants yet in a quiet area affording peace & quiet in the evening. Directions to the villa provided by the owner gave us no problems and we were "on holiday proper" within a 45 minute drive from Malaga airport.

The only problem we had was leaving Tolox - for the first time ever Diane came out with "We'll have to move to Spain", although I think the fact the it was 8 degrees and raining at Newcastle when we got back may have something to do with that.

Whilst the locals in other places we've stayed in (Lanjaron & Velez de Benaudalla, further east of Malaga) were friendly I think the Tolox folk top the lot. The village really does have a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and Diane & I felt very much at home. Also, given that the temperature hit 38 degrees before we left the fact that the house is lovely and cool inside was very welcome at times.

We both look forward to returning to stay in this lovely villa and spend time in Tolox soon.

Maison spacieuse sur 3 niveaux et très bien équipée. Proche du centre bourg de Tolox où nous vous conseillons d'aller passer de bons moments au bar restaurant La Alberca, accueil très sympa et cuisine familiale "muy barata".

Il faut savoir que la piscine est faite pour se rafraîchir et non pour faire des longueurs, question de taille...

Il y a plusieurs maisons du même type dans la résidence qui sont à l'abandon, ce qui en soit ne poserait pas trop de problème si cela ne gênerait pas la prolifération de quelques sympathiques et causantes grenouilles et la visite à 2 reprises de rongeurs. Au dire du voisinage, il y a eu quelques acquisitions récentes et on peut espérer que le défrichage des terrasses et le nettoyage des mares (piscines) permettront de remettre un peu de salubrité dans tout ça.

Bon rapport qualité/prix dans l'ensemble

Jardines de Tolox

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Tolox, a whole week of relaxing, with a short jaunt over to Ronda. My husband managed to limit his work interruptions to a minimum whilst having an early beer in the bar with the wifi. The house was ideal for us all, plenty of space so the kids could do their own thing, They were all talking about next year!! The pool great for cooling off in the afternoons. The owners agent couldn't have been more helpful. The village is delightful, plenty of great food and everyone very welcoming. Just over half an hour to the coast if you fancy the beach.

Très déçu. Le jardin n'est pas entretenu, du lierre même sur les margelles de la piscine, fuites a la piscine, obligé de la remplir matin et soir. La douche extérieure sale et avec une fuite d'eau. Personne pour entretenir la piscine, pas de chlore. Pas de Wi-Fi, pas de télé, juste un lecteur DVD. Obligé de trouver un bar pour envoyer un mail au propriétaire et 3 jours après, nous avions du chlore et la télé à été branché. Heureusement la maison est correcte et propre. Tolox est très vivant mais très loin d'axe routier important. 40 mm pour atteindre une voie rapide. Tres loin pour visiter. Déçu par le site qui propose ces locations

Trés bonne location

  • 5 of 5

Arrivé en pleine féria de TOLOX, la musique et les feux d'artifice ont rythmés notre premier weekend.

C'est la location idéale : place voiture intra muros, trés spacieuse, 5 couchages, 2 sdb, une piscine pour se rafraichir, une terrasse ombragée, une cuisine complete et une belle salle à manger.

Contrairement à beaucoup de location, la literie est de bonne qualité.

Les randonneurs apprécieront le massif des neiges en haut du village.

Le seul point négatif à mes yeux : assez loin des grands axe, on perdait au moins 45min pour rejoindre une autoroute, quand on se rendait dans une grande ville.

Que du bonheur !!

Belle maison, conforme à la description

  • 5 of 5

Descriptif conforme à la location. Maison spacieuse, très propre, résidence calme. La piscine est très utile pour se rafraîchir, attention cependant à la profondeur si vous avez des enfants. Très bon rapport qualité/prix. A recommander.

Tolox is a traditional Spanish town which lies beneath the Sierra Nieves Mountains. It is approximately 30 minutes from Malaga airport and 20 minutes from Alhaurin el Grande. The village of Tolox is renowned for its “Balneario de Fuente Amarga” spa, which was declared for public use in 1871 due to its therapeutic properties. The area is one of natural beauty and a place to relax, unwind and escape city life. Less than an hour inland from the coastal resort towns of Marbella and Malaga the town of Tolox remains traditional and relatively untouched by modern stresses and strains. Its white washed houses and exteriors decorated with flowers have won the town prizes for it beauty on several occasions.

Tolox is overlooked by the Cerro de Hijar hotel which is perched high on the mountain above the spa and looking out on the vast rolling countryside below. The hotel offers exquisite on-site cuisine or just a cup of tea which you can enjoy whilst taking in the spectacular views.
