Overview

About the property

Away from it all, without being too cut off!

A pretty Spanish villa, ideal for families or groups of friends. Sleeps from 1 to 8 guests. 3 double bedrooms (extra beds provided free of charge), 4 bathrooms, large family farmhouse style kitchen with sofabed, formal lounge with 2 large sofas and wing-back chairs. 50" TV with basic British TV package, HDMI and USB connections. Plenty of space inside and out to relax in a corner to yourself, even when you are part of a large group. Outside there´s a covered terrace with 3 sofas, an open courtyard with pool table under the shade of a lemon tree, a shady barbeque complete with huge table and plenty of chairs. The swimming pool has a springboard and slide (suitable for fun loving adults as well as children), tiled sundecks with plenty of sunloungers. The lawn has fruit trees for shade. The whole pool area is fully fenced in making it safe for families with children.

The villa is in a very quiet estate of private villas but only a twenty minute walk from the affluent, lively town of Alhaurin de la Torre. 20 minutes in the car and you are on the beaches of Torremolinos

The walk into the town centre from the villa is along our quiet, well lit, cul de sac and then along safely lit, palm tree lined pavements.

The Plaza Mayor shopping and entertainment complex is 15 minutes away, with around 30 restaurants, all the major clothing retailers, a multi screen cinema and bowling alley.

Notes:
The villa is ideal for groups and families, but also for couples who enjoy the private space and having a pool to themselves. There are a number of steps within the grounds, making it unsuitable for wheelchairs. We do not allow smoking within the villa at any time, but there are plenty of comfortable, shady chairs outside. The air conditioning is in the kitchen/dining room and all three bedrooms. It is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. I live, with my friendly dogs, in a house in a totally separate area of the grounds. There is a high wall between my gardens and yours and therefore I will not disturb your privacy at all. However, I am on hand should you require any help or some local knowledge. I have plenty of recommendations for good restaurants!

Fabulous Villa Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from an 8 day stay at this lovely villa, travelling as a family group of 4 adults and a 2 year old toddler. We were delighted with the villa as it was even more spacious than the pictures showed. It had everything we needed including an outdoor fridge, a good selection of books and games and the outdoor areas were great, with plenty of seating and shaded areas.

The pool and garden area is fabulous with plenty of sunbeds, umbrellas and seating and with great views of the mountains . An added bonus for us was the fact that the pool area is gated which gave piece of mind with a toddler in our group.

Anneliese met us at the villa and gave us a warm welcome and prior to our arrival her communication was excellent, responding swiftly to emails and the whole process was very simple and quick. The villa itself is in a quiet residential area and is a 15 - 20 minute walk into the centre of town. We'd have no hesitation in returning to this lovely villa and had a very relaxing time there. Many Thanks Anneliese.

Wow, Awesome Villa

  • 5 of 5

Searched for a villa with a pool in Andalusia, luckily found this and decided to book. Description listed everything we needed.

Well we spent our week at the villa and were not disappointed. It was better than described, perfect for a relaxing week or two.

Anneliese sent us all information prior to trip, met us on arrival and provided a detailed tour and information. A very useful Red Folder provides all necessary information on the villa and the local area.

Fully fitted out kitchen with more utensils than we have at home, we cooked a few meals at the villa.

We had a very hot week, temps reaching 37c so most of our time was spent in the pool. Pool is lovely and had plenty of inflatables which we all enjoyed playing with.

The weather was great and the villa was great.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday and the villa was beautiful, all the basic items are there as well as a selection of books and games. We found it a lot easier when we worked out the local transport system in the second week, It is well run and very affordable. The nearest bus stop is a 10 minute walk from the villa and will take you into the town if you don't fancy the 20/30 minute walk. There is also a train line at Plaza Mayor -from there you can get to places like Benalmadena and Torremolinos. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again especially now we know how easy the bus service is to use. If we were to stay in a larger group again we would probably hire a car to make it easier getting food back to the villa although the local taxis are very reliable and we were never waiting for more 10 minutes to be picked up.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I am delighted that you realised how good the bus service is. As you said, the train line is great, one way goes to Fuengirola and the other into the centre of Malaga. However, I do recommend that guests have a car especially in the hotter summer months, not only to make shopping trips more comfortable but to explore the lovely towns and cities locally. The walk into town is 1.2km to the edge and 2km to the centre. Hope to see you again!

Wonderful villa in a great location for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more delighted with the villa on our arrival as it was even better than pictures showed. It was cool and very clean with everything we needed including an outdoor fridge, a lovely outdoor eating area and plenty of seating.

Anneliese gave us a warm welcome, which was no surprise as the communication during booking was excellent. Anneliese also provided lots of info about the local area including places to eat. La Baranda in town was excellent and also Old Italy. We even found a great Indian restaurant in nearby Alhaurin el Grande called Indian Flavour.

The location was ideal for playing a number of golf courses nearby and within 25 minutes you could be on the beach or wandering around the port in Benalmadena. The large pool at the villa was a refreshing place to cool off after a hot day, the springboard and slide will cope with grown adults!.

We had a fabulous, relaxing 10 days and are already planning a return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you! On your recommendation I dined at Indian Flavour the other day and all I can say is thank you! It really is as excellent as you said. It is now on my list of favourite restaurants in the information folder in the villa. Looking forward to seeing you all again.

Perfect - A true home from home

  • 5 of 5

Overall this villa is perfect. It’s large, clean, comfortable and offers a lots of indoor and outdoor space. The owner is brilliant – leaving you a manual (red folder of joy!) to keep you right on everything you need to know about the gadgets, area, villa and your responsibilities as guests. Wi-fi? Great! Don’t hesitate to book (but please don’t book the weeks we want!)

More Detail...

This villa is situated in a quiet residential area on the edge of a vibrant and lively town with lots of shops, bars and restaurants - however a car is recommended.

The interior accommodation is clean, stylish and spacious. There are three bedrooms - two with en-suites. Showers are excellent with hot water always available. Beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of wardrobe and drawer spaces.

Livingroom is very comfortable and large with a large TV, DVD player with DVDs and a book library. Sofas are HUGE and extremely comfortable.

The kitchen is enormous with a large rustic table and everything you could want to prepare and cook meals and snacks.

But where this villa really excels is its outdoor spaces. There’s lots of them and they all offer something different.

The sofas in the shaded porch is perfect for morning coffee, a little bit of respite from the hot Spanish sun, and a little tipple in the evening.

The huge comfrotable table (will seat 12) at the shaded BBQ area means meals last a long time as chat, laughter and wine flow

The corner area at the pool is wonderful to read a book and look at the mountains in the distance.

The grounds are immaculate (Tom the gardener visits on a Monday) with orange and lemon trees in the front and back gardens (the fruit is like nothing you will ever have tasted)

Pool area is large, secure with lots of loungers and chairs.

The only draw back might be if you have mobility problems as there are a number of stairs. But its a wonderful place and Annelise does a wonderful job of making you very welcome.

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you so much. All I ever strive for is for my guests to love the villa as much as I do and wish to return. There is nothing else to say except I think I might ask you to write the villa advert for next season!
