About Simon Brew & Gisela James

We are a retired couple who fell in love with Spain & Andalucia while enjoying a short break in Fuengirola. Simon is a retired IT consultant and Gisela is a retired language teacher. We bought our villa off plan in 2003 and we have hugely enjoyed it ever since.

Simon Brew & Gisela James purchased this villa in 2003

Why Simon Brew & Gisela James chose Alhaurín el Grande

We have enjoyed coming to this area for the last 15 years, mainly because the weather is usually wonderful, it's an excellent centre for exploring Andalucia, the local people are very friendly and there are fabulous local beaches and spectacular scenery... and it's directly on a golf course! The property has outstanding views across to the hills and the setting sun.

What makes this villa unique

The views at the front are fabulous, and so is the private heated pool. It's the perfect place to relax, as a base for playing golf, or as a centre from which you can explore the beautiful surrounding countryside of Andalucia and its world-famous cities of Malaga, Granada, Sevilla, Ronda, and many others. There are several fabulous sandy beaches within 20mins drive.

A wonderfull house with evr'thing you need!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks with six persons in this lovely, clean house. The manager was very friendly and when we had a question he answered us very quickly and good.

Outside there is Always a place where you can sit in the sun or in the shadow. The pool was great. Ev'ry week there comes someone to look after is. Outside there is also a room with shower and a toilet.

Our son in law enjoyed the golf very much!

We leaved the house with tears in our eyes and hope to come back soon!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Really nice villa with a fantastic pool and pool area which we enjoyed every day. The pool itself was extremely clean and beautiful to swim in. The surrounding terrace with shaded area was ideal for sun lazing and outdoor eating. Poolside toilet and shower also available. The villa itself was high spec. Air conditioning in the main living room and all bedrooms was great for day and night comfort. Massive lounge. Wifi was slower than youd get in the uk at about 1mb/s but good enough for browsing. Theres smart telly and we were able to watch netflix on it. Kitchen is fully stocked with all amenities, theres also 3 x bathrooms. All in all a lovely property with everything we needed. Location wise its about a 10 min drive to the nearest town and perhaps 15 mins to a big supermarket. Fuengirola took us about 30 mins. All easy via a roads. Mijas pueblo is 15/20 min drive and is stunning. Worth mentioning theres a garage with 3 mins for essentials and a couple of restaurants within a similar distance too.

We loved our stay. Absolutely perfect for long days by the pool with occasional trips out to see the local sights. Local rep was extremely helpful too. Highly recommended Villa!

Relaxing, quiet, but close enough to shopping and restaurants and bars

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa which we planned to use as a base but spent more and more time there. Great outside areas and pool, with BBQ's many evenings watching the sunset behind the mountains.

Away from the coast and the tourist areas but only 20 minutes from the nearest beach if you need to see the sea!

So many places to visit within a short drive and excellent roads throughout the region.

Mihas was well worth the visit, as was Marbella old town, and the lovely village of Monda with incredible views from the castle.

We planned to do much more but relaxing by the pool frequently won over.

This was our first villa holiday and we would certainly recommend it.

Casa Bruja is well furnished and well equipped, and very comfortable. The owners and agents go out of their way to make sure everything is ok.

The pool man Andy is also a mine of useful information recommending some lovely drives to mountain side whitewashed villages.

There are also several very good restaurants, bars and a hotel within easy walking distance ( but it is uphill on the way home!).

We did not want to leave and would gladly have stayed - so much more to see and do.

Lovely relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We're a family with 2 primary school age children and we had a fabulous time at this lovely Villa. The photos do not do the villa justice as it is so lovely. Had all the equipment we could possibly need. The villa is on a small development next to a golf course. We didn't use the course but it looked nice and there were others playing, It's rural with lovely mountain views, there is plenty of seating at the front and side to sit and enjoy. The pool at the back is an excellent size and lovely. We used the pool heating at the beginning of the week but didn't really need it at the end. We hardly went out and spent most of our time in the pool. You will need a car as there isn't a shop in walking distance, it's quite remote. The owners gave first rate information and the local agent is really helpful on site. I would recommend this Villa.

Casa Bruja is situated directly on the prestigious and challenging Alhaurin Golf course designed by Seve Ballesteros. Alhaurin Golf is only 45 minutes from Malaga Airport and 20 minutes from the friendly, sandy and attractive La Cala beach while the much bigger Fuengirola beach resort is about 30 minutes away. Tennis, walking and horse-riding are available nearby. The area provides many bars, quality restaurants and major shopping centres such as Marbella and Puerto Banus, while the bustling medieval town of Alhaurin El Grande ('Garden of Allah') is just 3km away. We're also only 6km from the world-famous UNESCO heritage village of Mijas, with its lovely winding streets, super restaurants and magical sea views. The villa is well sited for day trips to Estepona, Malaga, Nerja caves, Ronda, Antequera and Granada's world-famous Alhambra. You can also escape to the very attractive mountains and lakes of El Chorro & Ardales, where part of a Bond film was made.

Golf: Casa Bruja is absolutely the perfect location for a golf-based vacation. The villa is directly opposite the 12th tee of the prestigious and challenging main 18 hole par72 course at Alhaurin Golf (designed by Seve Ballesteros), and there are two other courses on site. There are at least 40 other courses within a 40km radius of the villa; for further details, please see the website for Alhaurin Golf or golf in Malaga.

The English owners will also be delighted to provide tailored information about the local area.
