Below is a note from one of our guests in summer 2015, to give you an idea of how a young family enjoyed the villa

Hi carol,

"We did go out on a few occasions Mijas was beautiful so we had 3 nights out there. We also went to Benalamadera for the day but it was too hot for my daughter so we only stayed for around 3 hours.

Obviously with the bus stopping outside we had several trips to Fuenngarola. One of the bus drivers recognized us each time so our children waved at him even when we weren't getting the bus. Both children loved to go to the end of the drive to see the goats each day.

We will definitely be returning to Mijas in the future. We felt we were just really getting to know the area when it was time to come home. It's such a beautiful place.

We loved the villa and would love to return some time. The sleeping arrangements worked great as well."

Thanks again

About The Owner

My wife and I have lived on the Costa del Sol for many years, where I have now retired. . We love the life, the culture and the beauty of the country. We still spend our pleasure time exploring the countryside, together with running an extremely successful Classic Car Club.

This gives us to opportunity to find fabulous locations, and sample some of the best restaurants Andalucia has to offer.

We would be more than happy to recommend places for you to explore and restaurants to visit.

Andalucia has so much to offer.

The Owner purchased this villa in 19

Why The Owner chose Mijas area

Andalucia is a wonderful region of Spain, unfortunately, many people only hear about the "Costa del Sol", but never really about the real Andalucia.

From our villa, go inland a couple of kms and you will see real Spain.

The lakes of El Chorro (Ardales) are the most stunning lakes - with its´turquoise waters and pine trees surrounding the lake, you could be in Switzerland. you can even swim in the clear freshwater, a must.

The stunning mountains of El Torcal, with the most breathtaking views.

Ronda, which you must have heard of, but take the scenic route, Mijas-Coin_Aloxaina, El Burgo-Ronda, here you can stop en-route at all these white villages and sample the local tapas. Have fun!

What makes this villa unique

Finca Eucalyptos is not for the young and single, we are not close to night clubs and noisy bars.

The villa is about spending time there and just relaxing. No other villas overlooking with noisy holidaymakers spoiling your peace and quiet.

In saying that, it is only minutes drive to the nearest village where you have all the conveniences you may require.

If you feel you need a bit of "action", then Fuengirola and Marbella are only 10 minutes and 20 minutes drive away. The beaches of which there are plenty,, and are only 5/7 minutes drive away. we recommend a car, but there is a local bus service, which operates about every couple of hours, Daytime, which runs past the villa

For Children, the garden is safe, all on one level and the pool has easy descending steps going into the pool. There are plenty of children's entertainment nearby. Agua Park, Zoo (which is really lovely and a bit different, it has won adwards) Sea Life, Crocodile Park, Safari Park, Go Karts, Horse riding and so on. We can direct you to these activities

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many lovely comments from delighted clients, who found exactly what they were looking for with our villa. Copies of testimonials can be forwarded at your request.

Carol, Thank you for all your help in taking us so quickly to the emergency hospital when Sarah fell and cut her leg, the clinic also was so helpful and kind.

It was so reassuring to know you were there, Ann Martin, June 2014

Ian, just a few words to let you know how much Lorraine and I enjoyed our holiday in your Villa. It was all we expected, the location was perfect for us and we had a real chill out time, just what we both needed. We would love to visit again maybe sometime later in the year. If you have any special deals late Sept or October we would be obliged if you could let us know. We have already decided to visit next year and will contact you about this later on in the year. Once again thank you. Kind regards, Bruce.

We loved the villa, the kids had a great time, after a stressful winter in Ireland, it was great just to chillout. We had planned to visit the lakes and Ronda as you had suggested, maybe next year when we come back David, Suzanne,kids

Great place, Just what we needed, thanks for all the advice on places to go

Faulous, relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (2 adults, a 6 year old, a 5 year old and a 3 year old)had a fabulous time at Ian and Carol's villa. We stayed for 6 nights at the beginning of April and were lucky enough to have fantastic weather so we all made good of the pool and the lovely garden. The villa was perfect, in an ideal location and it had everything we needed. All in all a fabulous holiday and to quote my children, "we never want to leave"!

Wonderful, Tranquil country villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from a week at this lovely, tranquil villa. The owners, Ian & Carol met us personally and nothing was too much trouble. The villa was spotlessly clean and really well equipped. So quiet and we loved the views to Mijas and being woken by the goatsman and his herd in the mornings!

Charming Villa Eucalyptus

  • 5 of 5

My family had a lovely 2 week stay in the tranquil, charming and totally private villa Eucalyptus.

The only real noise apart from the odd car is the daily goat herding (bells around their necks) which was a delight to watch.

Ian and Carol were very welcoming, helpful, supportive (in a moment of need) and knowledgable. Along with their villa it was a great all round holiday experience and we would not hesitate to rent again.

Thanks for a great

Excellent time at this Villa - will come again.

  • 5 of 5

Villa was very well presented and had all we needed for a two week stay and more. Outside space and pool were excellent and much larger than it appears on the photos.

The location was ideal for us - we enjoyed the quiet location with Mijas Pueblo only 3 miles away whilst our older teenage daughter and friend enjoyed trips to Fuengirola, Benalmadena and Malaga. We also managed to fit in an overnight trip to Seville! A car is highly recommend.

The owners couldn't have been any more helpful, meeting us on route from the airport to take us to the Villa and on the end of the phone for any questions we may have had.

Will definitely return and highly recommend.
