Villa Familia was originally built in the seventies and has been extended and modernised. It has 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms arranged over 3 levels plus a seperate studio with en suite. Three of the bedrooms and the studio appartment have their own private terraces, each with superb sea views. There are additional terraces all of which receive the sun all day long. There is a private pool 8m x 4m and a barbecue. There are two lounges one of which is 30 feet long and opens onto a covered terrace overlooking the garden and the sea. A 700 yard stroll down the hill will find you are on the fantastic two mile beach, where there are shops, bars, banks and restaurants. The villa is close to two golf courses, horse riding, karting and scuba diving at nearby Torrox. There are two sets of golf clubs at the villa for guests use.
Hi I'm Ben Travers, the owner of Villa Familia. I live in England with my wife, three children and our two dogs. My wife and I both work, but spend most of our time in Spain, where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the country.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2004
We love Benajarafe because of the Spanish nature of the village and the fantastic facilities in the area. There are some beautiful beaches and the sea front boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Malaga airport 35 minutes drive away. We often use the villa in the winter, as with the new motorways, the ski resorts are less than an hours drive away.
The property is just ten minutes walk up the hill from the fabulous beach. We provide beach towels and umbrellas so you can travel light and make the most of the great coastline. For those who enjoy a more active holiday, you can take advantage of the nearby Baviera and Anoreta golf courses. Both of which are less than 10 minutes drive. There are some great walks and water sports in nearby Torre del Mar. There is karting and tennis nearby.
You can find yourself sitting in the nearest beach bar watching the locals landing their daily catch. At which stage the bar and restaurant owners wander over to haggle for the best fish. They return directly to their bars and cook the fish to order. you can't get fresher than that.
I thought you might like to know how we fared in Benajarafe. As you know we were having a family reunion and we couldn't have found a better place to meet all our needs. Accommodating 15 of us, wasn't going to be an easy task, but your beautiful villa gave us everything we wanted.
The pool proved a 'Big Hit' with the children, so much so that they would have been happy to spend the entire holiday just in and out of it!
Even the hill down to the beach didn't deter any of us and we made trips up and down, no probs at all even for the little ones. The local buses were great, enabling us to venture a little further afield. We weren't too sure how we'd manage without our own transport but we got along fine without it.
Alan did a great job and looked after us really well He was there to meet and greet each one of us even though this meant three trips to Malaga when we arrived!
We will always have happy memories of our holiday.
Thank you Ben & Alan
Kind regards Julie & Co 11
We had a group of 12 stay at the villa and it was very spacious with room for everyone without feeling crowded. Two of the bedrooms had balconies with beautiful views. The pool was a great size, and big enough for everyone. The facilities are pretty decent too with an outdoor BBQ, lots of seating/sun loungers in sun and shaded terraces, a large living room with DVD player, plenty of fans... It was all brilliant for such a large group!
The location is great too, as it is a short distance by bus/taxi to Malaga and Torre del Mar, and only a ten minute walk to the beach where there are a few beach type restaurants. We didn't hire a car so used local buses which were a bit hit and miss - often delayed, however, taxis were also easy to get.
Alan, the agent, was a fantastic help and went above and beyond in making us feel welcome and he gave great recommendations on restaurants, shopping and getting around. He was extremely friendly and we were really grateful for his advice!
Thank you for a wonderful stay in your villa - I will be recommending it to family and friends!

A booking form will be sent to any potential holidaymaker by email, this forms the basis of our contract and gives the timescale of payments and deposit.
The changeover day is preferably Saturday, but I am very flexible and believe in a first come first served basis; where possible. Arrival times are also flexible to the extent that a local English speaking agent will meet you and escort you to the villa.
